"The substantive part of the
Antitrust Law should remain
at present; that is, eyery con
tract in , restraint of trade or
commerce among the several
states or with foreign nations
should continue to be declared
illegal; provided, however, that
some proper governmental
thority [such as the
ioner of Corporations acting un
der the secretary of Commerce
and Labor] be allowed to pass
any such contracts. Probably
the best method of providing for
this would be to enact that
contract, subject to the prohi
bition contained in th« antitrust
law, into which it was desired to
enter, might be filled with the
Bureau of Corporations or other

the provisions of the Antitrust
Law if at all in restraint of trade.
If no such prohibition was issued
the contract would then only be
liable to attack on the ground
that it constituted
able restraint of trade. When
