    "In the unanimous decision inthe U.S. Supreme Court affirmed, with slight qualifications, a lower court's ruling that Standard Oil violated the Sherman Antitrust Act and required dissolution. However, the Court's decision limited the antitrust legislation by ruling that restraints of trade and monopolies should be broken up only when they were "unreasonable" by a common law standard. This rule of reason confused the issue, which led to new legislation; the rule of reason remained a judicial standard, though, in antitrust suits."

    The federal government enacted antitrust laws in the years surrounding the turn of the 20th century, to fight the growth of big business during the later half of the 19th century.
    If a few individuals or companies controlled the vast resources of a single industry, then both innovation and competition would be stifled.
    needed vocab: anti-trust laws, monopoliesThe Standard Oil Company is a great example of a monopoly which got rid of smaller businesses or took them over. IT was created by John D. Rockefeller and trusts, clayton anti-trust act, standard oil, and Ida TarbellSamuel Andrew. Another example would be Carnegie's US Steel company.
    The Solution(s)
    During the 1870's the public needed help, so they started asking for it. The Progressives were formed, so this started the Progressive Movement which lasted from 1900 to 1920.
    The Progressive Movement wqas formed to get better work places, fair prices for goods that were not so high, and to end trusts.
    The Progressives worked for the government to make monopolies illegal.
    In 1890 the Sherman Anti Trust Act was passed, it basically said that it was illegal for trusts to eliminate their competition.
    Ida Tarbell was a woman who wrote "The History of the Standard Oil Company" which told the public what was going on in Rockefellers huge business. It ran in 19 magazine articles and woke the public to what Rockefeller was doing to the smaller businesses.
    The court decided that breaking up trusts would be better for the country because they used unfair ways to get people and other companies out of business.
    Anti - Trust laws were formed, these were laws that states were supposed to make against monopolies and trusts.
    Then they formed the Clayton Anti Trust Act, which was basically an act that strengthened the Sherman Anti Trust Act. It said Labor Unions were ok and there were many more restrictions on monopolies.

    Women's education was an important topic in this time. Women started to play an important role in education. By the 1900s women were the majority of teachers. The government would help the action of getting female teachers by funding colleges to permit women to enroll.You would have to encourage women to get a more professional career.
    Women should take a prominent role in active government. If women gain these positions in politics they will influence more people to fight for women’s rights as well. Soon the idea will expand and women active in their community will become more and more accepted.

    The Solution(s) - The Eighteen Amendment- Constitutional amendment outlawing alcohol. Some women went on large crusades. They lasted for several months and some people stopped drinking and began attending church again. This crusade soon formed the Women's Christian Temperance Union. They wanted no alcohol, drugs, prostitution, or violence. They educated people about the dangers of alcohol. Carry Nation was a very serious temperance worker. She carried a small axe into saloons and smashed the buildings to pieces! The Anti-Saloon League and Prohibitionists fought for total outlaw of any alcohol.

    The connection between forests and rivers is like that between father and son. No forests, no rivers. So a forester may not be wholly beyond his depth when he talks about streams. The conquest of our rivers is one of the largest commercial questions now before us.
