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. The coal trust op?
erating in Pennsylvania can be prevent?

tu lawyers, co the o.her band,
characterise the govcromeni'a action as
"high banded." They say the section
of the law jost invoked for tbe first time,
i? only aimed to give tho lederal au?
thorities final power to atop an illegel
carporatioa doing business, after it has
been so declared by the couria, in cs>
of a refusal to obey thc cc uri's
order. 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?

wss losing patience over legal delays,
and that if tbis policy were persisted in,
wholesale sale seizures by the govern?

Ninth Virginia district, without difer

complicates the situation. Mr. Hailey,
who liss for many yeats been an ardent

there has lor some time teen a private
understanding between Bascomb Slemp

nation of Congressmen. In con?

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
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
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
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.
This gave the Clearing House, now
known io Wall street as the cleaning
house, its opportunity. It had these
operators absolutely at its mercy and re?
fused to put up a cent until they got
out of tie banking business entirely.
It g-neri-tl the entire trouble is regard?
ed aa an acute case of undigested securi
t ie*, but this time it is the "inside"
banks that have ihe indigestion and not
the other banks 1 r tbe public in general.

Place for Mitchell.
Indianapolis, Oft. 22.-Tbere is reason
to believe that John Mitchell, president
of the miners, is to be pushed for a
high political office not only by his !ibor
organization of irienc's, but by som*
powerful financial|interests. It is known
that President Roosevelt will make a
high place for Mitcnell, if tbe latter will
accept it, and thia th j labor leader will
probably do, if his health is restored.
