The old theory of the inability of a corporation to commit a crime, was based upon the fact that the corporations were made up of stock-holders, each of whom would be innocent of any criminal act in which the management might The engage, their knQwledge of the corporation being restricted to the yard, conditions of the charter under which they became stock-hid rs. a her The invasion of the rights of the masses by the predatory rich, Af has led the rich corporations generally to concur with any such Bayo decisions as made them criminally liable, and wherein the punish- John ment was manifested in a fine, apparently the only way to reach Florn theqir the actual corporation. The New York Central paid, or is willing Mr. to pay its fine of one-hundred and eight-thousand dollars, in ac.- itor cordance with the decision of February 23rd against it, and the Th sugar trust and the beef trust have seemed disposed to meet the Pass case in the same way, The twenty-nine millions of dollars of fine Ben. inflicted upon the Standard Oil Company, by Judge Landis, seems rce to have led these great corporators in that case at least, to plead vant I that the innocent stockLholders of the company can not be mulcted of f in any such enormous aipe, as it would be taking their property M: from them without due process of law, they never having willing- anie I ly consented to hold ptock in a corporation which was permitted lun by its charter to cormmit crimes, and the managment of any cor poration has no right to go beyond the powers granted to the cor poration in its charter, M The good old-fashioned common law idea was that the execu- spe - tive officer of a corporatien had no right to do anything excepting and - what he was especially authorized to do by directors, or by the au- end end I thorized direction of an executive committee of the directors. Mr: 1 These restrictions threw the responsibility on the party to whom bau t it belonged, and if any illegal actipn is done it is done by the indi- Mai vidual or by the joint action of several individuals, and nqt by the 1 re , stock-holders through any corporate action, as Was held in the New tiew, n York Central and sugar trust cases. w. n It would seem very queer that any effort of the common law I a to protect the avreage man and allow a number of men with lim- las ited capital to combine their capital in order to erect factories or Lid engage in mercantile business in competition with large individual Ma h capital or with aggregations of capital that the law should permit Me the building up under its own administration a, Franlenstein with En y greater power than its creator, We adhere to the old view that a I c corporation can commit po crime; that if a crime be committed it sAP Is is committed by the individual actually engaged in the transaction, g 1- or by the party directing this action and thus rising step by step pel 1 along the executive line until the actual criminal, who transcends any o) the organic law of the corporation, is found. This is the party Du et who commits the crime, and who should be held criminally respon- ta sible for his action even if it leads to personal imprisonment. It as seems simply absurd to construe the law as now, and to permit the lie i- predatory corporations to commit positive crimes to be punished gu i- jn a commutation style by a fine, and not by the personal imprison- Ji c- ment that would attach to the same crime if committed in an indi- tk nt vidual capacity. Let us go back to the old construction of the law, h le and not accept the modern constrlction which bids fair to lead to Bt c- reyolution. GI of ------ ra ar The Ides of March, Remember. bi y, March has been an unhappy month for others as well as it was G' se for Julius Caesar when he received the famous warning, 'The ides of March, remember." The dread day for our aspiring presi, dents has been the fourth March, a little earlier than Ciesar's fate- M na ful day, but equally decisive, at least in President Harrison's day, M se The hero of Tippracanoe could not stand the fourth of March in M Washington and died within a month after his inauguration in 1841 from the incidental exposure. Washington has generally a tem rd perate climate, far less rigorous than Philadelphia or New York, ne but still a climate wherein the early days of March are frequently H Sdreadfully bad. or The death of president Harrison in 1841 front exposure dqring nd the inauguration ceremonies and the revere exppsures that many. lot of our presidents have experienced in their inauguration, have led fi ve to many suggestions as to a change of date for the ceremonies. e to The experience of our Louisiana delegation in Washington assist- h ing at President Tafts' inauguration was extremlely trying, and our folks are fortunate to get through their duties there and back t home again as well as they have, All the world, or at least all of b the United States world, are now clamoring for a change of dates t he for the presidential inauguration, The date of March 4 is purely of an accidental one. The continental congress 1788 resolved that the ' Spresidential electors should be appointed on the first Wednesday in r SJanuary, that the electgrs should assemble and vote on the first Wednesday in February, and that the first Wednesday in March e' be the time for commencing proceedings under the constitution. of That Wednesday was March 4, 1889, and the President then in- t augurated had a term of four. years to serve under the constitution, t ing and pow'only a constitutional amendment can qjange the date. If u the date were fixe4 for April fourth, the President would serve one aC- month longer than the constitutional limit. sa- While there is pluch talk about the bad weather of March, ell and the unfortunate choice of that date, March foqrth, for the in, her auguration of the president, we doubt there being any change in Sour day and generation. Our Congressmen like the short terms of rhe Congress, those thus beginning the first Monday in December, are end March fourth, They don't like the long sessions and don't like hat extra sessions, and only yield to thl same when public opinion de, i1 mands that they do so, The compensation of Congressmen is now ded $7,500 per year, whether they serve a short session of three 'ery months, December, January and February to March 4, as in the it short sessions or straight on from December to October, as in ost 1890, when the McKinley Tariff bill became a law. The short ses ted ion years are the Congressmen's holiday years, the years in which Po they can go to lurope, or serve on some roving commission, eral going cut to the Pacific coast to examine into the forest resources, m- or to Hawaii or the Philippines, etc.,etc. MIarch fourth will sure ly etand as inauguration day for many years to come,.
