Washington, Jan. 11. Tlio business
methods of the American ToIiiuid
company were defended In the si
Ireme court by Attornoys John U
Johnson and Delaney Nicoll, while
Wllllum B. Ilornblower did a like serv

of Gieat llritnin, which was brought
Into tlie suit liled by tlio government

the Sherman law was construed by
counsel In a way to exempt the Amer
ican Tobacco company from Its penal
ties. Tho profound legal argument was
varied at. times by flushes of humor,
as when Justice Harlan, who Is cclo
brnted ns a chewer of tobacco, com
plained to Attorney Ilornblower of the
poor quality of chewing tobacco on the
"It is rotten," tho justice observed
mournfully. "We cannot get nny good
chswlng tobacco nny more."
Mr, Ilornblower, who 'was in tlio act
of defending his British client, the
Imperial company, solemnly acquitted
that concern of the responsibility.
"The English people do not chew, I
am told," Sir. Ilornblower said. "Per
sonally I have no knowledge of (ho
quality of chewing tobacco. I pre
sume the only demand for it in Greal
Britain Is by Americans who are
abroad and demand the comforts of
There was unusual Interest manifest
ed in tho brief argument of John O.
Johnson, the Philadelphia lawyer. lie
declared that the Sherman law was a
statute to promote commerce, not to
restrain It. The government proposed
to force the American Tobacco com'
pany, which had three-fourths of the
commerce, to quit business and per
mit tho concerns that had only one
fourth to continue.
Delancey Nicoll, in concluding his
argument, decinred that the theory of
the government was that there was a

and upset his vehicle, which was piled
high with npples and pears. In n twin

Ailing their pockets. The Italian stood
In hopeless despair, wrung his hands
and burst Into tears. The astonished
newsboys at first laughed and then,
apparently touched by the poor fcl
low's grlof, drew near and emptied
their pockets Into tho cart. Then thoy

remainder of tho scattered fruit. The
apples nnd pears wero soon back in the

National Tournament to Be Held
En Chippewa Falls.
NEW RECORDS ARE EXPECTED,
Course Has Been Lengthened and
Takeoff Widened to Help Skiers
Make Great Jumps Extra Induce
ments to Man Who Boats 'Record.
By TOMMY CLAP.K.
Wisconsin ski jumpers nnd those
of other states have been hard at work
for tho past few weeks preparing for
tho national ski tournament to be
held this year at Chippewa Falls, Jan.
2S and 20. This event of tho old world
winter sport In America Is always
looked forward to by die followers of
tlio daring jumpers, who gather In
large crowds to witness the wonder
ful flights of the sturdy competitors
on their wooden runners.
Tills fascinating winter pastime Is
extremely popular in Michigan, Minne
sota and Wisconsin,, and it Is expect
ed that skiers from all three states
nnd the Dominion of Canada will bo
on hand to sot now figures for tho long
lenp that Is the magnet that attracts
tho admirers of this reckless form of
Improvements In Big Slide.
Great preparations have been made
to perfect tho long slide so that the
daring knights of the spruce blades
will have every opportunity to either
equal or excel tho record figures of 1-1-1
feet, made by Ole Felrlng at Duluth.
Minn., a year ago. Tho long incline,
which measured 800 feet In length last
season, has been added to still more,
and the takeoff has been moved thirty
Those improvements will give the
men an opportunity to get up greater
BKI JDMrElt IN Allt AFTER L1IAVJNG
momentum, and tho moving of the
take off will afford them a much safer
landing place. A feature of tho Chip
pewa slide that is enjoyed by few
others in this country Is that tho patli
Is sixteen feet wide at the "bump," or
takeoff, thus enabling tho men to take
tho jump In their own peculiar man
ner and not to have to follow the beat
en track of their predecessors, as is
the case at nil other frozen pathways.
Ono hundred nnd twenty-two feet
wns done at this course at tho last
meet of tlio skiers, and It Is expected
that with tho Improved conditions sev
eral feet will bo added to this mark
when tlio lovers of the sport gather
for tlio banner event of tho season.
There Is every reason to believe that
the slide will bo lightning fast, pro
vided that tlio weather man Is kind
and furnishes conditions favorable for
fast participation In the sport.
Ski Jumping Gaining Favor.
Ski jumping has rapidly forged to
tho front rank of winter athletics In
thu western section of this country
sluco its Introduction by tho Norwe
gians hero not ninny years ago, and
it bids fair to retain tho popular
favor by rcasou of Its freedom from
objectionable features that enter into
otiior sports. The lovo of victory is
firmly Installed in tho minds of the
fearless and shifty followers of tho
sport, and as the money prizes are
comparatively small and the betting
conspicuous by Its absence there la ab
solutely no reason for tho -mon not
putting forth their best efforts.
No thoughts of holding back enter
tho mind of a man when he faces n
glassy stretch of nearly 300 yards that
requires his utmost skill and nerve to
slide down n't a deatli defying speed
and then exacting a gathering of all
his power for tho leap that sends him
sailing through tho air to a safo laud
ing In n snow bank or perhnps n dan
As a consequence skiing Is slowly
earning a well deserved populorlty,
and from all Indications there Is every
reason to believe that tills form of
sport will In time becomo n fixture.
