TRUSTS CAN'T COLLECT DEBTS.
k .
Supreme Courf Benders Drastic De
cision.
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. ' H

PUBLIC WELFARE AND .
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."
