SEIKS GORE CASE REHEARING.
Motion Filed by Mrs. Bond for New
OivLAHOMA CITY Ok . February 10.
A mot'on for a new trial of Mrs. Min-
nie Bond's JSO.tXH) damage suit axalnst
Senator Thomas P. Gore was filed In the
district court here today. The motion
was signed by Mrs. Bond and her attor-
ney. Alleged misconduct of the Jury mis-
direction of the court snd the refusal
of Judge George W. Clark to permit
questions to bo- asked or comments to
be made concerning the past life of Sena-
tor Gore are amena- the 11 grounds set
up In support of the motion for a new
trial. Judge Clark has not yet set a
date for hearing the motion.
Tho principal error alleged In aupport
of the motion Is the ruling of Us court
hi not permitting couneel for Mrs. Bond
to cross examine Senator Gore as to
Ills alleged misconduct with other worn-
ea la tho past and the court's refusal
to permit Mrs. Bond's attorneys to read
Into tha record In chambers.
Tfle attorney attempted to propound
those questions directly to Senator (Hare
when the Tatter waa upon the wttsssss
tand but the court refused to permit
them to be asked In the presence of the
jury or public. The questions also con-
cerned alleged bribes In connectloa with
Gore's name while he was a member of
the territorial legislature.
The filing of a motion for a rehesuHnsj
Is a necessary proceeding under the law
when an appeal Is to be taken to the
Ruprem Court. Attorneya for Mrs. -Bond
announced Wednesday night shortly
' after a verdlot In favor of Senator Gore
was given that an appeal would be

TO BE TAKEN UP
Question Must Be Consider-
ed Said Davies.
Annual Report of Bureau of Corpor-
ations Made Public Monopo-
listic System Discussed
(AtlecicUi Prtu Rrrert.)
WASHINGTON February 10 Does
the monopolistic system contain In Itself
tbe seeds of Its own decay?
That question Commissioner Joseph E.
Davies of the Bureau of Corporation de-
clared In his annual report mada public
today a Federal Investigation now under
wsy hopes to answer.
in a review of a working program for
tha bureau Commissioner Davies points
out that aside from an economic study
of the trust question retail price main-
tenance la one of the questions to be
taken up. Trusts their efficiency and
reforms however are to comprise the
principal work for the coming year. The
need of soma Federal body for the pur-
pose of Investigation and publicity In
trust affairs whether It be the Bureau
of Corporations as now organised or a
commission as proposed 'In the pending
Administration bills In Congress Commis-
sioner Davies emphasised.
In his report he discussed the monopo-
ly question at length saying in part:
la Trust Farm gfrtcrent?
"The question la whether tbe trust
form of organisation la really efficient.
If It be fotiad that smaller competitive
units la Industry oaa produce commodi-
ties more ' cheaply. Or even as cheaply
as monopolistic units and that they have
ether and greater advantages than those
claimed for tho- BKsnopoUstic or trust sya-
ntben the) sroeianV. is nmuly settled
aror of tbe competitive system snd
the chief argnmeat for the regulation of
monopoly m destroyed. Thla Is a scienti-
fic question of fact and it Is the plan
of. tho bureau to Investigate this ques-
tion. "While from a governmental point of
view there are various aspects of the
trust question which are af great Impor-
tance auch as tbe relation of trust to
. popular government and their effect en
the social and eoenotnto conditions of
labor) there are two aspects U which

bureau nir-fl:. the effect upon the cost
o' ptiMui 1 n ari1 distribution and the
effect upi.!. tho p-ice to the ronsurrer
"Is ts ronteniieti by some that with the
increase in the siie of Industrial enter-
prise there toe. n reduction In the coat
of cytra.lon. manufacture and distribu-
tion and that surh reduction In cost Is
accompanied h .er prices to the con-
punier anl !" noi Involve a reduction
In or an tmilrment of the ' ondi-
tions of lai-or
Cheaper Production Detailed.
' Kven if these claims were true the
question would still' remain of course
whether the evil resulting from large com-
binations would ii't be greater than the
all ied HilvantaceM of cheaper production
and distribution It Is contended on the
other hunt that the source anil origin
of nionoMjl. is found chiefly In the desire
to exploit the general public by stock-jobbing
schemes for the immediate profit of
the proinoters. or for the purpose of ob-
taining cont'd of the market and exacting
iindiilv i.mh prices from the consumer.
"Many isrge combination have failed
nd demonstrated their economic Ineffi-
ciency Combinations which have obtained
control of tbe market and it is admitted
have prospered but this Is alteged to be
due to their monopolistic position and
not to superior efficiency. According to
those who ivld this view there is a point
bevonfl which the gtcrease In sixe of op-
erations does not result in an increase In
economv ari'l efficiency but rather In loss
ml waste sn that the maximum effi-
ciency Is not ttained by large combina-
tions but instead by concerns of moderate
nn" li tli- Hitler contention be true
then a.' his beer said tne monopolistic
ystem i.ntalns In Itself the seeds of Its
oTl dc ay
Claims Mada as Blind.
"Again some of those who dlspu.e Ihe
superior efficiency of large combinations
contend that this claim I made m-roly
its ii Mind for tbe purpose of selling
wntred stock. They say that such or-
ganizations are established for the pur-
pose of either netting control of the
market and exacting excessive pvlces
from consumer or of Issuing Inrge
sniounts of watered stock tor the pur-
pose of selling such stock to the public
in the first case. It Is argued such cvm-
bln:itlons are not concerned with the
j promotion of greater efficiency but
i merely with obtaining a monopoly; In the
I second case they are chiefly ooncemod
1 with selling the stork and as they can
not claim to the' general public that It
has a great value due to monopoly they
are obliged to find another selling argu-
ment namely superior efficiency.
Price Policy Important.
'() almost equal Importance with the
determination of this question of com-
parative efficiency la thst uf the price
policy of such large Industrial combina-
tions as have achieved a substantial
control of the market Those who al-
lege that such Industrial enterprises re
