the conflict of interest e&hiblied in the

"The representatives of arganlaed labor,

sentiment which placed tbe Sherman anti

Tbe separate states can regulate the

because they create them; but the states
annot regnlate the interstate commerce
that is dona, because under the Tnited
States constitution interstate commerce is
under national control. It cannot be too
clearly apprehended tliat the effect of true

neither the national sovereignty nor tbe
state sovereignty can rcrnlate both the

the interstate commerce that is done. Thl

The case came to the sup-erne court of

Ftates for the southern district of New

other lines as the Southern Pacific, the

Tills order was very sweeping n character
and intended to develop the facts regarding
the community of interest between the
t'nion Pac.lTic and other roada, the prac
tices and methods of the roads, the rales
i received, etc. It was alsa bojeS that It
! would bring out the facts regarding the
trunsfer of other stocks In the Union Pa
cific. When Mr. Harriman was put on the
stand he declined In response to a question
to say whether he had owned any of the
Chicago a: Alton stock, which was pur
chased by the t'nirm Pacrfic and the prices
of which had been fixed by himself;
whether a portion of the stock of the Illi
nois Central had been acquired by a pool,
of which be was a member with the view
of selling it to tbe Vnion Pacific; and
whether the Union Pacific directors were
interested in the New Tork Central stock
which was acquired by the Union Pacific.
Be also Aecllned to say bow much of the
stock of the Atchison, Tnpeka A- Santa Fe
was owned by the directors of tbe Union
The circuit court directea Mr. Harriman
to reply to these questions and he responded
by appealing to the supreme court.
The apical of the government from the
decision of the court was based upon the
refusal of the lower court to compel Mr.
Harrlmaa to answer a question as to
whether he had t purcbeseS -stock in the
T'nion Pacific in the Intention of an an
nounced dividend. There was also a pro
ceeding against Otto H. Kahn. a. member
of the New Tork banking firm of Kuhn.
Loeb Co., who were the financial ngents
of the Union Pacific, similar to that against
Harriman. Mr. Kahn refused to answer
questions covering the polms upon which
Mr. Harriman declined to enter.
