of New York, before the jurisprudence 1

problem which he said had reached 1
a paramount place in the welfare of
the nation. Judge Gaynor declared 3
that the discrimination practiced by ^
the great railroad systems is the *
mother of all the trusts and the great- a

r Judge Gaynor advocated summary

the question instead of few processes
of judicial procedure and, asserted
that this matter of freight rates so far
transcends any other question about
monopolies that its proper adjustment
would settle other, if not all the questions

Commenting on the prime object of
government, which he said was to promote
distributive justice to all, he declared
that while governments have j;

been, up to this hour, signally unsuc- ?
cessful, however well intentioned, in p
attempting to regulate commerce for
the general welfare. "Many seein to p

"These two decisions,*' said the i
Judge, "made all of the trusts, liarne'

speak, outlawed. q
"The State Legislature," said Judge a
Gaynor, "then came to the aid of the j,
