W.siii.soto. April 2S. The I'mted
States Supremo t'otirt tn an opinion
road by Associate .lustier I.aniar which
was miopti'tl to-day by a vote of ,. to t,
laid down tlm rule that stockholders
and bondholders In a corporation can
not tlefeat the claims of unsecured
creditors by reorganization plans If the
creditor shows the proper dlllcence In
pre-ontlnK hi claim.
The deoislnn, in the opinion of cor
poration lawyers, will li.ue a far reach
ltit; effect In preventing the repudia
tion of obligations throtiKti reorganiza
tions of corporations.
Tho five who Joined In the majority
opinion were Justices Lamar. McKennn.
Pay. HtiKhes nnd I'itney. A vigorous
dissenting opinion was road by Justice
l.ttrton and concmred In by Chief Jus
tico White and Justices Holmes ami

Tho Judgment alllnned to-day b the
Supreme Court was nsralnst tho North
ern I'aclllc Hallway Company, which
took oi or tlm Northern Pacific Hallroad
Company under a rontKunlz.ition plan.
The Northern Pat ,11c Hallrnad Companv
was held us the tlebtoi on account of Its
acquisition of the Couir d'Aleim and
Nnilcatlon Hallroad Company, against
which the claim was made, originally.
The case was admitted to lie a test case.
Two questions were Involvul. ( ine
was whether or not Hoyil, the ci editor,
had been tl.llgini in prosecuting lus
claim, and on this the coutt divided. The
inajoilty opinion held that he had been
unuually diligent and Justice l.urton
for tlm mlnotlty characterized hl meth
ods ni "sluggish."
The other question, nnd tills Is the
more important one. was whether or not
the transfer of tho property of tlm old
Northern Pntltlc Hallroad Company,
when It was an Insolvent concern, to the
rcorganl'cd Northern I'aclllc Hallway
Company could defeat tlm claim nf un
secured crotlitors if they were non-assenting
The majority opinion holds
that "as against tlm non-asentlng cred
itois such a sale Is o!d In equity re
gardless of the motive with which It was
The minority opinion holds, nn the
other hand, that the objects of i-ecurlng
a receivership and a sale nnd reorgani
zation of a groat pmporty that has bc
enllio Insolvent would bo tlefeated If the
rule laid down bv the court Is to be ap
plied in the future. The minority holds
that when a gront corporation has he
roine hopelessly Insolvent It will bo Im
possible to fesusdtate It and restore its
life if all forms of claims should be
recognized as alld against those who
m quim tlio pioporty.
In the inajoilty opinion .Insure l.iiniar
held that the transfer of the properly
to the teorganlzed rninpanc "was not a
moiiil fraud, but the decree by which
stnckholders of the old company secured
an Interest in the new compnn) tloes not
tu t ossarily operate against unsecured
tedliors of the old company.
' I'or If such contract teoiganlzatlon
was 1 on-ummateil In good faith and in
ignorant of tlm existence of the
creditor, yet whon ho appeared nnd es
tablished his debt the subscribing in
torests of the old stockholders would
still bo siibjett to his claim In the
hands of the reorganized company.
"Ii 1- tiigiioil that this Is true only
when thete Is a fraud In the decree, the
appellants insisting thai lu other cases a
Jmllrlal sale operates to pass a title
which cuts riff all clalniH of unsecured
creditors against tho property."
.Iiihllro l.ntnar pointed out that the
iiotg.inlzatlon plan made "no arrange
ment for paying unw'curcil creditors,
hut the now organization purchnned
11 t.nnit.000 of unsecured claims from the
old Northern Pacific."
