Tl i-*i'AV ETOXINQ. OvT. 22. 1907.
liiMiHiimx (if trj.ii made gooda v.' n ttic w enter into interstate cotnnrrce onler a section of the S oerman anti-tiust law, is the new feature of an attack up a illegal combinations inaugurated ye*) erdiy by tbe Depniment ot Jts'ice. A 1 >rge consignment of cigarettes roan nl'ac'ed by tbe tobneco trust, and ofler td for shipment at Nuf.lt, was sexed at tbe instance of tbe attorney general Lythe colite or of cus'oois at Norfolk, af slited ia yeateid'.y's GdMtW, Tbe trust, to(laim.it8 propeity, must go in? to court and prove thal it is not gpmt * ing in restraint of trade or viola*iog th* anti-trust law. Tbis move upon th* part of tbe Department of Justice is prnti?My tbe most important and fer? rel tug scion that bas yet been taken agaioat the tru?>. Tbe immediate pur? pose) of the Attorney funeral is to tea! the law, but in tbe ev*, nt of ruling by tbe courts in favor of the Kivemment tne trusts are left abaoia < ly at tbe mercy of the government, and all tbei- manufactures or other property, the moment it enters into interstate c immerce.may be se -?d and confiscated. As much as has been written and said about tbe Sbrrmftn cuti-lrust law, it baa never belora leen realized tbat the a'a'uie cocfers any such power upon the government. It remained for Attoroey (i'lieral Il-jRSparte and h's r-Hsiatan'.a to eliscover wb-t an enormous power tad bMA given tbe govert rucut. lathe De? partment of Justice there is cot tbe S'ighteat doubt that the section cf the law invoked aili be upheld by tbe courts. Tbe courts have decided that all combinations in restraint of trade ere illegal, and tbat all conspiracies en? tered into for the purptse of affecting trtii? J>re als i illegal. Tney have aUo decided that the control of interstate commerce rests absolutely with the fede? ral government and, therefore, that urti r such control the government may tl-te taine wb.it iltm ol goods shall be admitted to interstate commerce and what] class excluded. So, in tte opinion of the attorney general ail his assistants, tbe government may se'/? uni, r the coi li'Cation clause of the Sherman law, all property en? tering into interstice commerce in violation of thc law. If tbe courts take tbis same view of tbe prep* tailiofl the ?tl ct oust be immed? iately of tba mest fur-reaching conse? quence, Se/.no of gooda belonging to a combination which is merely suspected of violating tba law will be possible, and tbe burden ofprool will bo thrown upon the owners ol the good*. Hereto? fore the government has been required to prove, first thc existence of a trust, aud than some violation of Uw. Under the new method, made possible by the heretofore overlooked section of the Sherman law, the government need only Ruspext and tbe trust must prove is in? nocence. Iiiless the Department ol .liis ice is mistaken, thc enforcement of Ibil newly invoked providion of law will compel tbe dissolution of all the trusts iu the United State, not as the result of court orders, bul as Ihe result of a no'.i fi:atir.n from the government that they ctniot continua to do business. The law applies to every combination sub? ject to pr> stcu'iion for restraint or the creation o! monopoly.

These lawyers declare that the law makers never intended to give the federal authorities the off-hand right to stamp a corporation as illegal and furnish them the weapon of drastic en forcement, without due process of law. lt is probable that tbe essa will get into the Supreme Court on this constitutional cueation. It is understood from a high source tbat the Norfolk seizuree was made for the particular purpose of noti? fying "bad trus's," that tin government wss losing patience over legal delays, and that if tbis policy were persisted in, wholesale sale seizures by the govern? ment would follow. "We ure sincerely desirioas ol knowing just what toe anti trust and Interstate Cirr meroe law meas," said anotner kw eflictr of ibe government today. "The subterfuges, evasions, acd legal quibbles o! the trusts are becoming viry annoying.

Truat Company Suspends New York, Oe*. 2:\?Shortly after tbe opening i^iis morning a run was started on the Harlem branch of the Knicktrboker Trust Company at Lenox avenue and l_5:h street. The reserves were called out to keep the depositors io order and the bank officials brought out huge stacks ol currency aod dealt it oat aa rapidly as possible. They say they have plenty ol money to meet ali calls. Both at the general offices aod tbe Harlem branch of the company officials retuaed lo make any statement. Over the telephone, tbe official in charge of the Harlem branch said: "I can't say a word. I'm too busy to talk. I'm no' allowed to nay anything, anyway." Seventy-five persons were in line seek? ing to withdraw funds when the main i 111 e of ibo Knickerbocker Trust Com pauy opened at 66 Broadway today. Harry B. Hollins, one of the directors is helping the cflicers of ihe company to hatiale lbs rush. He said there was plenty of mouey on hand and lhat plenty more coul i be procured instantly il it she uld be needed, which he con? sidered improbable. Auother disastrous crisis in Wall street waa averted tidily when, after an all-nigM session, atteoded by J. P. Morgun aud many other leaders of finance, it VU '.nu ucced that tbe trust companied bf New York would support ihe Knickerbocker Trust Com? pany and Mm it through any situation that might follow the sudden resignation of i's president, Churle** T. Barney. New York, ()- 22? The Knicker? bocker Trust Cornea*.y temporarily sus pended payment at its down town office, 66 Broadway, thia afternoon, alter pay? ing out $8,000,000. Following thu announcement of sus? pension by the Knickerbocker call money ran up to sixty per cent. Immediately fallowing the closing of the do ira by the Knickerbocker came a report, which spread like wildfire through tbe finaucial district, tbat the Trust Company of North America was alfi in dtfti ulty. Chairman Jobn E. Borne, of the directorate, was highly in? dignant At ibe rumor and declared it to he a libellou*ly malicioua statement. Tho trust company, be asserted, hat had no rtladors whatsoever with Charles W. Morse or any of the persons who have been named as being responsible for the present upheaval in banking circles. An official statement regarding tbe condition of the Knickerbocker will be is? sued soon, according to theofficera. They are now in consultation with lending financial interests wi*h a view to resum? ing payments. All tiu-t companies in the city have been asked to come to the aid of the Knickerbocker in order that payments may bs resumed throughout the day. Examiner M. \V. Hutchins of the State Banking Department said that he made a hasty examination of the ac? counts of ibe Knickerbocker Trust Com? pany tbis morning and he emphatically declares the books show the institution to be absolutely solvent. All depositors in the waiting line were told to como back at 9 o'clock tomorrow. The Bank Troubles. New York, Oct. 22 ?The bouse cleaning now going on in New York banks is regarded in the financial dis? trict as being considerably over due. At the time of the insurance expo-urea it was predicted the banka would be next, but ilfy escaped to make way for the Standard Oil and traction rsvela ti ip. Thc bank exposures hive proceeded witb a sensational rapidity. It took months to g<*t McCall ind McCurdy out of the insurance companies, but in four days the presidents of f *ur national banka and the president of one trust company have leen summarily bounced, wi h a h;ng list of directors. Tne trouble originated from tbe aame Well street system of legal looting that was effective in the case of the insurance companies. In tbe insurance expo-urea the opera? tor*! involved laclndt-d E H. Harriman, Senator C. M. UePea. George W. Per? kins of J !'. Morgan k Co., and a host of lesser fry, including heads of the cor p irstijns tf.emseivei. Ii tbe tracion mudd** are involved Thomas F. R?!in, Au bony N. Brady, August Belmont, P. A. 3. Widener,Thos. DiliiP, H. H. Vreeland and what has b en kuown for 5 earn ss the inside clique of radii rn in ihe eis'. Now in the banking revelations the big men so far uncovered are E. Augus? tus Heit z?, Charles W. Morse, E.R. Thomas and 24 other lesa well-known financiers. It 's the ru it nm >f Wall street banks to loin money on marketable securities up to 80 p?r cent, of their value. If the market value of the cecurities fall the bank demands more security. But stocks rarely fall more than live poiola at a time, an the banks are able to keep their loans sale. I-j one day, however, ibe Heinze and Morse securities 'ell from a market value of fifty cents on the dollar or more to point where it was practically impcsalble to eel! tbern at any price. Tbere was no time for the banks involved to get securities and they were left stranded high on the beach.
