of tho Southern Pnciflo Hallway with th

by tho lato Edward It. Harriman early
in 1001, is Illegal and a violation of tha

Tho judgment of tho Supemo Court is
sweeping. Nothing so important hi
como from that court affecting transporta
tion lines since tho decision in the North

the court has demolished the ambition

consolidation of these two great systems.
The decision orders tho dissolution of
tho merger within three months. It in
vites tho legal representatives of tin
Government and-of tho railroads to sub

It directs tho lower court to enter a
decree that will enjoin tho exercisfl of the

Tho decision forltids nny transfer or
disposition of the stock thnt may continue
tho control as nt present and directs an
injunction also against tho payment of
any dividends upon tho Southern Pac'.flu
stock while it is hold by the Union Pacific.
Finally, tho court directs that a receive.'

lined in tho Standard Oil and tobacco
trust decisions. For instance the court,
referring to the railroad merger, holds in
to-day's decision that it is "the scope of
such combinations, and their power to sup
press and stifle competition pr oreato
monopoly, which determines the ap
plicability of tho act."
