H The court In deciding h case th ' la9t of the jrreat trust dissolution suits brought to the supreme court rver ed the decision of the federal court of Utah, w hich had held against the gov- H jernment, H Th" decision. Supreme Court Justice H Day stated means that the Southern H Pacific will be required to divest Itself H of nil stock ownership In the Central H ! Pacific lines or other control It h-s H held since 1SSG by lease and 1899 by purchase. Justice Day delivered the opinion of H the court, reviewing in detail the his- tory of the construction of the Central and Southern Pacific railroads and H Uhe methods by which the latter ob- H talned control of the former, holding H that tho Sherman anti-trust act was H effocthe In dissolving any comblna- H Hons which by stock ownership, lease H or other control constituted a mon- H opoly or trust which congress pro- H hlblted by the Sherman act.

The Southern Pacific must sell the Central Pacific under the terms of the decision. The Union Pacific company is almost certain to bo the purchaser. The Union Pacific Is declared to bo about the only road with a reserve with which to purchase the road and by purchasing the road the Cnlon Pa cific will have a through line from Omaha to San Francisco. Southern Pacific shops In Ogden will come under the ownership of whoever purchases the Central Pa cific. MEANS MORE I RK IGHT. Observers declare that the amount of freight routed over the Central Pa cific should Increase greatly in the event the Union Pacific gets the road. They point out that under present conditions the Southern Pacific com pany sends over it Sunset route a great amount of freight which Just IIKI as well could conic over the Ogden route. The Southern Pacific uses the Sun set route for much of this traffic be cause If It used the Central Pacific It must share freight revenues with the Union Pacific when Ogden la reached. OGDEN HE LDQI RTFRS. On the other hand with the Union Pacific owning the Central Pacific, the Union Paclfli would go after busi ness with great vigor to be routed through Ogden With (he ownership of the Central Pacific settled, it is believed that many feeder lines aIll be, built, feeder llnc that have been declared necessary.
