UNIOINSOUTHERN
PACIFIC PARTED
BY HIGH COURT
HARRIMAN'S DREAM
MAY BE REALIZED
Omahj, Dec. 2.?Nelaon H. Loomis.
general counsal for the Union Pa
cific, would not comment on the
deciaion, but another officiaI of tha
law department expresaed the opin?
ion that the reault was a victory for
the railroad. He declared the orig
inal intention of the Union Pacific
waa for eontrol of a direct and
through line to the Pacific Coast
rather than for eontrol of the South
ern Pacific aystem. He said Mr.
Harriman was compelled to take
over the Southem Pacific ayatem to
get a continuous line to the coast.
though the railroad builder'a dream
waa for a direct route, such as is
permitted in the court's ruling on
the Centr.,1 Pacific,
One prominent official declared
the decision would put the Union
Pacific Railroad in a position to go
ahead with many projects which
have been held up awaiting the out
come of the auit.
That many other lines, including
auch railroads as the Pennsylvania,
the Rock Island and the New York
Central, would be affected by the
decision was the general belief at
Union Pacific headquarters, and
one official said the road would have
the arlvantage of being ahead in
knowi^a what was in store for it.

tentotu declaratlon:
"While the law may not be able to
enforce competition, it can reach com?
binations which render competition im

In its opinion the court laid down fr
Ithe first time the prmciple that a_?C ?
; lute or legal control of one corporati' n
by another was not necessary to ccn
stitute an infringement of the law. The
| Union Pacific held in 1901 371 2 oer cent
j and later 46 per cent of the stock of the
| Southem Pacific. Thi* cffective con
? trol was declared to be in violation of
the 'aw.

The action of the court as intflr
preted generally as another step in the
direction of making the anti-tru*t law
an effective eheck on iIlegal combina?
tions and as putting a damper upon
talk of further anti-trust legislation. It
is the general belief here that the ap?
plication of the decision to the railroad
situation of the country will bo wide
spread, placing a powerful precedent in
ihe hands of the Attorney General to
prevent the consolidation of competing
roads.
It also increases the d.ff.cult.es of tha
