Washington, Feb. J.. The case of the Continental Wall Paper Company vs. Lewis Voight & Sons, of Cincinnati was to-dtjy decided by the Supreme Court of the United States in Voight's favor. The suit was brought by the company on a debt of $55,000, the payment of which was resisted on the ground that the paper company is a trust. In effect the decision holds that an admitted trust organized contrary to the Sherman anti-trust law cannot use the court to collect debts. Justice Harlan's opinion dealt in de tail with various phases of the case. It was based on the third defense of Voight that the company is part of a trust. He started out with the proposition that the Continental Compahy is within the pro visions of the Sherman act, which, he said, is clear from the facts set forth in its defense. He then went on to show that this corporation is a representative of a combination which would have the effect not only of restraining but mo nopolizing the sale and manufacture of paper. The Continental Wall Paper Com pany," he said, seeks in legal effect the aid of the court to enforce a con tract for the sale and purchase of goods which it is admitted by the demurrer was in fact and was intended by the parties to be based upon agreements that were and are essential parts of an illegal scheme. , "We state the matter in this way be cause the plaintiff in its demurrer ad mits for the purpose of the case the truth of. all the facts alleged in the third defense. " Further along Justice Harlan says: "This suit is not based upon an im plied . contract of the defendant com pany to pay for goods that it purchased, but in fact is based upon the agreements to which both the plaintiff and defend ant were parties, pursuant to which the accounts sued on were made out and which had for their object and which it is admitted had the effect to accom plish the legal ends for which the Con tinental Wall Paper Company was or ganized. If judgment be given for the plaintiff, the result will be to give the aid of the court in making effective the illegal agreements that constituted J:he forbidden combination. The question is whether the plaintiff company can have judgment for the amount of an account, which it is ad mitted by demurrer, was made up with the knowledge of both seller and buyer with direct reference to and execution of certain agreements, under which an illegal combination, represented by the seller, was organized. " Saying that a judgment m favor of the company would give effect to agree ments 'constituting the illegal combina tion, Justice Harlan said, we hold tnat sucli a judgrjient can hot be granted without departing from the statutory rule, long established in the jurisprudence of both this country and England that a court will not lend its aid, 'in any way, to enforce or to realize the fruits of an agreement which appears to be tainted with ille gality, although the result of applying that ' rule may sometimes be to shield a defendant who has got something for which as between man and man he ought perhaps to pay, but for which he is unwilling to pay." In conclusion Judge Harlan said: , "Upon the whole case and without further citation of authority, we ad judge upon, the admitted facts that the combination represented by the plain tiff in this case was illegal under the anti-trust act of 1890, w'liich is to be taken as one intended, and whiuh would have the effect directly to restrain and monopolize trade among the several States and with foreign States and that the plaintiff cannot have a judgment for the amount of the account sued on because such a judgment would in ef feet be in aid of the execution of agree ments constituting that illegal combi nation. We consequently bold that the Circuit Court of Appeals properly sus1 tained the third defense in the case and rightly dismissed the suit." The case was decided against the com pany by a majority of only one. Jus tice Holmes delivered a dissenting opin ion, and in doing so stated that Justices Brewer, White and Feekham concurred with him. 5 Justice Holmes undertook, to show that the illegality of the general con tract of Voight with the paper company taken by itself did not make any spe cific sale illegal, and he contended that it does not rnatter as to the legality of the sales, whether a previous step was illegal or not.

RAILROAD PROPERTY Senator Taylor, in a Letter, Discusses . Their Relation. Washington, Jan. 31. Senator Tay lor has expressed his views on the rail road question in a very concise marine in a letter to lion. Geo. A. Post, who is president of the Railway Business Association, whose membership consists of the leading railway magnates of the country. The letter to Mr. Post is i reply to his soliciting Senator Taylor'; lniiuence relating to railroad-ami indus trial development in the South. In this letter Senator Taylor expresse what he thinks the people should do and what the railroads should guaraute to do, in order to bring about the bes legislation to all concerned. The lette is as follows: RKSl'OXSK TO LETTER. I am impelled to make some re sponse to your letter because I find tny self so nearly agreeing with your en thusiastie, endorsement of the resolu tions of the Southern Commercial Con gross at its recent session in Washington relating to railroad construction in tl South and counseling conservative leg islatiou by the States. The statement that the South has, and must have more railroads needs no enlargement and the further equally important state ment that the Legislatures should safi guard railroad investment with just conservative and generous legislation admits of no contradiction. The rai roads constitute the main instrumental ity of commerce and their prosperity is the first essential indispensable to pub lic prosperity, and that the people who depend upon railroads, and the railroad that depend upon the people, in exact mutuality, should be at enmity business solecism, a civic absurdity and !i suicidal policy. Why should the an tagonism longer exist? As for myself, I am sincenTy in fa vor of according to the railroads the fullest and completest control over their own affairs and such liberal latitude in rates as will insure most adequate re turn upon investnu'nt and pay to oper ators, not merely as meir just rignt, out to enable them to keep their own facili ties to the very highest notch necessary to minister fully to the increasing de mand upon them as the surest means to quicken industrial development mean this in its fullest sense, and I have an earnest desire to be a useful friend of the railroads, provided they will meet me half way in mutuality of concession The resolutions of the Southern Com mercial Congress meet my heartiest ap probation. AN ADDENDA. And now, without going into the obvious reasons for it, I want to propose in addenda, which, in my judgment, involves the very crux of the situation and the remedy, and which, if it can be honestly consummated, will solve the railroad riddle and restore perfect con fidence between them and the people, with all the incalculable benefits to both that it implies. Let the railroad power and the government, representing all the people, enter into a solemn treaty spat, the people on their part under taking to guarantee the railroads: 1. Immunity from interfering leg islation. " . ' 2. Unhampered management o f their affairs. "3. Doiy generous profit on actual capital invested. "The railroads upon their part guar anteeing: "1. Total political abstinence. "2. Equal rates and treatment of all patrons. ' 3. To engage in no other business than common earners. There are two fundamentals, and if the railroad magnates could get together in conclave representing the principal roads and elaborate a plan upon a basis something like this and pass it up to Congress to put in legal form, and if it is done in such manner and form and with such hostages on the part of both. as will gonvince the country it is to bo rightly adhered to, it will be an effect ive settlement of the most vexing com mercial problem of all the ages and bring peace and prosperity into com mercial affairs. JIARVEI.OCS GROWTH. "Within my political life the South has increased its manufacturing capital nine times over, its manufacturing val ues six times over, its farm products three times over, and its exports nearly three times over, altogether being an increase from a total value of one and one-half billions to the marvelous total of seven and one-half billions. And this is but the, breaking of the crust. With the transportation problem settled and with the sail roads working in com plete harmony with all the other indus trial activities, it hath not entered into the mind of Southern men to conceive of the riches and development the next ten years will show. "The plan I propose is the surest, shortest way to it and there must be a truce between the legislative poer and the railroad power befort' 'he railroads can fully perform their gKtt function and meet the fullest requirements of in dustrial progress." Good In Both. I have only praise for the beanery. The food Is good, Although not surrounded by greenery. Some prefer a hotel to a beanery. The score Is more, But they can afford finer scenery.
