CORPORATE DEATH.
A Decision Against the Sugar
Trust.
The Court of Appeals Delivers
An Opinion.
Tho, Judgment of the Lower Court
Fully Sustained,
The North River Refinery Forfeits Its
Franchises—The Trust People Not
Alarmed.
Associated Press Dispatches.l
Albany, N. V., June 24.—The de
cision of tlie court of appeals in tlie case
of the people vs. the North River Sugar
Refinery Company, written by Judge
Finch, wa.s handed down today. It
says : ''The judgment soughtagainst the
defendant is one of corporate death.
The state which created, asks us to de
stroy, and the penalty invoked repre
sents the extreme rigor of the law.
Two questions open before us:
First, has the defendant corporation
exceetled or abused its powers ; and sec
ond, does that excess or abuse threaten
or harm the public welfare. We find
that it lias become an integral part and
element of a combination which posesses
over it absolute control and dictates the
extent and manner and terms of its en
tire business activity. The defendant
corporation has lost the power to make
a dividend, and is compelled to pay
over its net earnings to the mas
ter whose servant it has become.
Under the order of that master, it is re
fused the privilege to refine sugar, and
by as much has lessened the supply
upon the market. It cannot stir unless
the master approves, and yet is entitled
to receive from the earnings of other
relineries, amassed as profits in the
treasury of the board, its pro
portionate share for subdivision
among its own stockholders who
now own substitute certificates.
In return for this advantage it has be
come liable to become mortgaged; not
for its own corporate benefit alone, but
to supply with funds the controlling
board when that board reached out kn
ottier coveted refineries. All of this is
admitted by the defendant."
The decision, after further considering
the formation of the trust, says: ''The
defendant could have prevented it being
founded by refusing to register or recog
nize the legal transfer of stock. They
should have appealed to the law, thus
shattering the trust, at the outset. The
question to be determined is whether
the conduct of the defendant in aiding
to form the trust was illegal. In all
these points which have been reviewed,
it is found that the corporation was doing
the public an injury, and in avoiding
the state law which compels the reser
vation of corporate rights, proved un
faithful to its owners. The present cor
poration or trust puts upon the market
capital stock, proudly defiant of actual
values and capable of unlimited expan
sion. It is one thing for the state to re
spect rights of ownership, and quite an
other thing to add to the possibly
further extension of their consequence
by creating artificial authorities in
the management of all such
aggregations. If corporations could
combine and mass their forces in a
solid trust with little added risk to the
capital already in, without limit to mag
nitude, a tempting and easy road is
opened to enormous combinations vastly
exceeding in number and strength any
possibilities of individual ownership.
The state seeks to protect individuals,
rather than combinations."
Concluding, the opinion says:
"The defendant corporation has
violated its charter and failed
in the performance of its corporate
duties, and that in a respect so material
and important as to justify a judgment
of dissolution. Besides that in this state
there can be no partnerships of separate
and independent corporations, whether
direct or indirect, through the medium
of a trust —no substantial consolidations,
which avoid and disregard the statutory
provisions and restraints ; but that man
ufacturing corporations must be and
leinain separate as they were created, or
one under the statute. The judgment
appealed from is affirmed with costs."
New Yokk, June 24. —Supreme Court
Justice Barrett, referring to the decision,
said: "This is a matter in which I have
taken greater interest, I think, than in
any other which has come before me.
This question of trusts is, I thinkahnost
of as much consequence as slavery."
On the street the sugar people and
those interested in the trust, appeared
to be more amused than disconcerted by
the decision of the court. They say the
trust has not received its death blow,
but will still continue. Only the
"method" of doing business will be
affected.
ILLINOIS KKFUKLICANS.
A State Ticket Nominated and Platform
Adopted.
Springfield, 111., June 24.—The Re
publican state convention today nomin
ated the following ticket: Treasurer,
Franz Amberg, Chicago; superintendent
of public instruction, Dr. Richard A.
Edwards, the present incumbent. Trus
tees of the State University were also
nominated.
The platform renews the declaration
in favor of a free and honest ballot and
count, and recommends the enactment
of the Australian ballot system by the
next general assembly ; also the bill now
before congress. National and state
action is urged against trusts and com
bines whereby the prices of necessaries
of life are unjustly enhanced, and com
binations of common carriers whereby
the expenses of carrying the products of
tlie farm arc placed at such exorbitant
figures as to amount to the confiscation
of both farm and labor.
The platform maintains that no cor
poration or company should be per
mitted to get more than a reasonable
per cent, on the actual capital invested
and reasonable wages for its officers and
employees; that dividends on watered
stock are robbc-v. The platform favors
the use of both gold and silver as
money. Libor.il pensions are favored.
The importance of the temperance ques
tion is recognized, and "all proper and
practical methods for abating the evils
of the liquor traffic" are favored.
The administration of President Har
rison is cordially endorsed, as are also
the rules of the house of representa
tives, "by which the rule of the major
ity in congress is made effective not
withstanding the filibustering tactics of
tne democratic minority, whose only
purpose seems to be to prevent and ob
struct wise legislation."
On the school question the platform
says: "We recognize the American
public school system as the chief agency
in securing intelligent citizenship, and
the chief bulwark of popular liberties,
and we declare in favor of a cumpulsorv
education law which will guarantee to
all the children of the state ample op
portunity of acquiring such elementary
education as will fit them for intelligent
duties when they reach the age of man
hood. But we are at the same time op
posed to any arbitrary interference
with the right of parents or guardians to
educate their children in private schools,
no matter where located, aud we favor
amendment to the existing compulsory
education law so as to conform with the
declaration herein set forth, and also the
repeal of so much of said law as provides
for public supervision over private
schools."

CITY VS. STATE.
CLASHING AUTHORITIES AT SPO
KANE FALLS.
An Interesting Contest Being Waged. Be
tween the City and State Authorities.
Arrests and Counter Arrests Made.
Spokane Falls, Wash., June 24.—A1l
day long the city has been deeply ex
cited over the conflict between the city
and state authorities. A struggle has
been pending for some time between the
City Park Transit Company and
the Spokane Falls Street Railway Com
pany, for the privilege of laying street
car lines on Division street. At the last
meeting of the council that body ordered
both companies to tear up their tracks
from the sides of the streets, and gave
the City Park Transit Company privilege
to lay a track in the center of the street.
The City Park Transit Company
obeyed the order, but the Spokane
Street Railway Company did not, and
instead, obtained an injunction from
the superior court to restrain the tear
ing-up of their tracks. At 4 o'clock this
morning the difficulty began. A large
force of laboring men in the employ of
the City Park Transit Company began
tearing up the tracks of their opponents,
being protected by a large force of po
lice. Judge Kannard, of the superior
court, then issued a restraining order,
and Acting-Mayor Davidson, Street
Superintendent Swinglot and Alderman
Covey were arrested for contempt of
court. Soon thereafter Sheriff Hinch
liffe and Deputy Hugh drove to the
scene and placed Chief of Police Hub
bard and his captains under arrest.
They submitted and in turn or
dered the police to arrest the
sheriff and his deputy. Then
all parties went before Judge Kannard.
Judge Kannard was annoyed over the
resistance to his orders, and directed
the sheriff to enforce them and to tear
up the new track of the Transit Com
pany, if he had to call on every able
bodied man in the county. The sheriff
gathered two hundred and fifty depu
ties, and going to Division street tore up
the track of the Transit Company, and
relaid the track of the Spokane Street
Railway Company, thus leaving matters
where they were at the beginning of the
struggle, and placing it in the superior
court for determination. A special ses
sion of the city council is now in session,
but as yet has taken no steps in the
matter.
Investigating the Koodlera.
Chicago, June 24.—An investigation
into the charges of boodling in the city
council was begun by the grand jury
this morning. Evidence was presented
that Mike McDonald, the wealthy ex
gambler, olfered Alderman Charles
Monear and Simon AVallner $'5,000 each
to vote for the West Lake-street ele
vated railroad ordinance. They only
got $1,300 each and made an affidavit to
that effect in the office of Joseph C.
Mackin, recently released from the pen
itentiary for election fraud; then the
things were sworn to by Mackin and his
clerk.
This afternoon attachments were is
sued for the two ex-aldermen, Monear
and Wallner, and they were brought in
and gave bonds for their appearance to
morrow. Monear says the affidavit
bearing his name is a forgery, and the
whole business is a conspiracy. It is
through a man named Peter (iabel that
the charges of bribery are expected to be
proved, Gabel is a gambler, and is said
to have an unsavory reputation.
A Hen Thief's Hard Luck.
San Diego, CaL, June 24.—0. B.

ing, has been found guilty and sentenced
to undergo three months imprisonment
in the county jail, and to pay a fine of
$250.

A BIG TIE-UP.
Not a Wheel Turning on the
Illinois Central.
Tlie Road's Immense Traffic at
a Standstill.
All on Account of an Obnoxious
Superintendent.
The Trainmen Demand His Removal Be
fore They Will Allow Operations
to Resume.
Associated Press Dispatches. I
Chicago, June 24. — One thousand
freight conductors, brakemen and
switchmen of the Illinois Central struck
last night, followed by three hundred
passenger trainmen this morning. Not
a wheel w r as turning on the road here
today. Everything is quiet. The strike
is for the discharge of an obnoxious su
perintendent, Russell, and the rein
statement of two minor officials.
The strikers this afternoon ordered all
the branches of the road in Illinois,
Wisconsin and lowa tied up. It is said
not a wheel is moving north of the Ohio
river.
The men insist on the dismissal of
Superintendent Russell, whose jurisdic
tion extends over the lines in Illinois,
lowa and Wisconsin. They have many
grievances against him. Train-masters
were discharged by him as mentioned in
these dispatches last night.
The men did not want to be held re
sponsible for interfering with the United
States mail or express matter, and con
sequently attached the mail and express
cars to the New Orleans mail train
today. The general superintendent,
however, refused to start the train until
passenger coaches were attached, and
the strikers warned him that he de
tained the mail and express at the com
pany's risk.
General Manager Beck and General
Superintendent Sullivan had a confer
ence with the strikers this afternoon.
The men stated their determination not
to return to work until Superintendent
Russell was dismissed. The only con
clusion arrived at was that the company
would resist the men's demand.
The tie-up will cause serious trouble,
not only locally, but throughout a large
section of country both west and south.
The suburban traffic of the road is
enormous, the largest in the United
States. Trains run in and out of the
city every five minutes from 5 o'clock in
the morning until midnight, and are
crowded. All the people, many of whom
live beyond the cable-car limits, are now
thrown upon their own resources for
transportation. But it isnot this that will
trouble the commercial world. To stop
the freight traffic of the Illinois Central
means to prevent thousands of people in
Northern lowa, Southern Illinois, Ken
tucky, Tennessee, Mississippi and Louis
iana from getting their products to
market.
The Machinists' Strike.
La Gi#nde, Ore., June 24. —The strik

Boston, June 24. —The union brick
layers have decided to refuse all material
handled by scabs. This will stop build
ing unless the masters give in.
SUNDAY SCHOOL, WORK.
The International Annual Convention in
Session at Pittsburg.
Pittsburg, June 24. —The interna
tional Sunday school convention met
this morning. Twelve hundred dele
gates were present from all the states
and territories, and provinces of Canada,
representing all the evangelical denomi
nations. At the afternoon session Presi
dent Reynolds spoke at length of work
in the field. New England now, instead
of being the fold at which the great west
draws its missionary supplies, is a
missionary field itself. The vast
number of foreigners coming in
has created a demand that never ex
isted before for missionaries right in the
heart of New England. In the south
both white and colored people are inter
ested, and great work is being done. In
the west and northwest, so far as Sun
day schools are concerned, no states in
the union are better supplied. Al
though the organizations are weak, they
are improving, and the outlook in the
west is glorious. Summing up, he said,
all over the world and all over this great
country, Sunday school work is in a
more prosperous condition than ever.
The people are dropping their denomi
national prejudices, and realizing more
and more that if this country is ever to
be saved the Sunday school must be the
means. And not only Christianity, but
thinking men of all classes are looking
to this institution as the mainstay of
our nation."
Major Jarris, of Alabama, was then
elected president, and other officers
were chosen. Adjourned till tomorrow.

Associated Press Dispatches. I
London, June 24.—1n the commons
Ilealy asked the speaker whether there
was any precedent for an "earmark"
licensing fund. The speaker's reply
created a sensation. He made a long
speech, giving the opinion that there
was no precedent for such a fund. To
allow an earmarking license fund to ac
cumulate, as the government proposed,
he thought was a grave innovation,which
the house itself ought to decide upon.
The ruling was received with opposition
cheers. After further debate the minis
ters retired to discuss the speaker's
opinion. Lord Harrington and Cham
berlain advised the cabinet to drop the
cause. No definite conclusion was arrived
at, but it is understood Ritchie and
Goschen recognize the impossibility
of retaining the clause, and will allow it
to be dropped, while retaining their
portfolios. On returning to the house,
Smith asked that further consideration
of the licensing bill be postponed to
give the government time to consider
the speaker's ruling. He promised to
announce a decision next Thursday.
The German Army Kill.
Berlin, June 24.—There was a spir
ited debate in the reichstag today over

would neither drop the bill nor accept
amendments. The federal government
could not agree to curtail the service,
but he was authorized to say that a much
larger number of men would be placed
on the retired list in the autumn. The
federal government had met the reich
stag quite far enough. He therefore
urged the adoption of the bill. The de
bate was adjourned.

Strange Accident in a Tunnel at Ta
coma.
Tacoma, June 24.—Last night John
Miller and three companions entered
the water front tunnel on a hand car.
When well in they discovered a train
rapidly approaching from the other end.
The tunnel is too narrow to allow a hand
car to be lifted to one side, so Miller ran
forward to try to stop the train with a
lantern, while the others started back on
the hand car. Miller succeeded in
flagging the train and stood aside to let
it pass, but there happened to be a
broken rail at that very spot, and the
lirst car jumped the track and crushed
him against the wall, half burying him
under the earth and timber. His body
stood right up against the wall with his
arm extended, holding the lantern for
more than an hour before being dug out.
The Turners' Platform.
New York, June 24.—The Turners'
convention today adopted a resolution
signifying disapproval of any change in
the present immigration laws, and
pledging the members not to suppoft
any congressional candidate who did not
so think. The next bunds turnfest
will be held at Milwaukee in 1893, and
the next convention at Washington in
