The historic Standard Oil anti-trust case...
Item # 670603
May 16, 1911
THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, California, May 16, 1911 The last column on the front page is taken up with a report concerning the very historic Standard Oil versus the United States anti-trust case, in which the United States Supreme Court found Standard Oil Co. of New Jersey guilty of monopolizing the petroleum industry through a series of abusive and anti-competitive actions.
This was a landmark decision in the free enterprise system, yet the report takes a more consoling appropriate noting: "DECISION DOES NOT SHATTER MARKET" "Ruling of Supreme Court IN Standard Oil Company Suit Is Generally Anticipated In New York and London" "Big Corporation to Obey Mandate..." with more.
The articles carries over to page 2, with much detail.
Complete in 8 pages, library stamp in the masthead, indents at the blank spine from disbinding, very nice condition.
