IIHPUULICANS AND TKUSTS.
The Supremo Court has decided In
every case In which unlawful combina
tions aro attempted In violation of In
tel state commerce that Congress has
power to legislate. It 1ms, therefore,
sustained (bo views of Harrison, Sher
man und leading Republicans which
are embodied In the Sherman law, und
buy rejected tho doubts of Mr. Cleve
land anil his associates, which seemed
to present tho two entirely Democratic
Congrrtses which followed the Con
gress enacting tho Sherman law from
taking any action hostile to trusts. In
this latest decision (the Aildvstona
case.) the court has declared without
reservation that Congress has power
to legislate against nil combinations of
manufacturers which nro In restraint
of commerco between tho States. And
now President McKlnloy urges Con
gress, which has tho highest nssur
auco of Its right to legislate against
trusts prejudicial to interstate com
merce, to enact further antitrust laws.
