Had the court merely affirmed the decree of the lower tribunal criminal suits would have been barred but by reversing the decree in re- spect and holding that the indi- _vidual officials of the trust are guilty of criminal conspiracy in restraint of trade the court practi- cally makes it mandatory that Wickersham begin criminal pro- ceedings.

Southern Sympathizers Assail- ed And First Company Was Recruited. (By a Sandusky Veteran) I do not know that I can. recall anything that happened just fifty years ago today, but I have a vivid remembrance many things that happened about that time. There was considerable excitement in the little city of Sandusky, as well as all over the country. Fort Sumter had been fired upon by our southern bro- thers, war had been declared, Presi- dent Lincoln had called for volunteers and the Sandusky were anxious to do their part. A recruiting office was opened in Sa-ndusky. There were a-few--among us that sympathized with the south. They were spotted and carefully watched. One young man who had given expression to his sentiments and incurred displeasure was secreted in a store on Water street. The place was surrounded by a crowd and there were cries of "Mob "Shoot etc. The fire alarm was finally sounded in the hope of drawing the at- tention of the crowd in another di- rection and the fellow was spirited away later. No one was hurt. Sever- al other sympathizers slipped away about this time. >H. N. Bill, who had seen some tnil- iltary service in the state militia, had a uniform which he was urged to put on, thus adding enthusiasm. It re- quired no urging to get recruits, the number wanted enlisting in about one day. Hiram G.

One Hundred Thousand People At Indianapolis When Forty Start Contest '.1 MORTOR SPEETDWAY, Indianapo- lis, May hours before the gates were opened here today 10.000 people wer waiting to be admitted to the trig 500-mile international automo- bile sweepstake race that will be run today.
