OW ' that Attorney General
l'nox Las brought uit in the
United t States court for'the
district' of Minnesota asking
for the dissolution of the
Northern Securities . company people
pvant to know what It is all about. The
real point at issueis whether, under the
provisions of the i Sherman antitrust
tfaw, a comp:iny,j can without violating
;the law buy a controlling interest in
the securities of two or more railroads
fwhich ore parallel and competing,
j. In this suit, commonly known as the
merger suit. Attorney General Knox
peeks to prevent the Northern Securi
ties company, a New. Jersey, corpora
tion, from securing control of the Great
Northern Railway, company and the
Northern I'acific Railway company,
parallel and-competing lines.
. Mr. Knox charges conspiracy to vio
late the laws of the UnitedStates In
combining two competing railroads
through the formation of tbetNorthern
Securities company after other efforts
to combine had been defeated; that
for the purposes of defeating thei state
and federal authorities and furnishing
a defence that the Northern Securities
company docs not hold a majority of
stock of the Great Northern, railway
such stock is held by persons I friendly
to the corporation and will not be vot
ed until the legal questions have been
settled; that the Northern Securities
company Is in effect a merger or con
solidation of the comjeting lines, and
.that if this merger stands then the
public will be placed absolutely at the
mercy of any holding corporation
which may seek to consolidate all the
railroads of the country in one system.
J In his petition Mr. Knox says: "The
attempt to turn over a controlling in
terest of the Northern I'acific railway
Laving in 1S90 been defeated by a de
cision of the supreme court, the de
fendants, James J. Hill and his asso
ciate stockholders of the Great North
ern, owning or controlling a majority
of its stock, and the defendants, J.
Pierpont Morgan and his associates,
owning or controlling a majority of the
stock of the Northern Pacilic company,
entered into an unlawful combination
or conspiracy to effect a virtual con
solidation of the Northern Pacific and
Great Northern systems and to place

state and foreigfti trade or. commerce
carried on by them and to monopolize

the selection of the directors and offl

to wit. the holding corporation with
not only the power, but the duty, to
pursue a policy which would promote
the interests not of one system at the
expense of the other, but of both at
the expense of the public, all induce
ment for competition between the two
systems was to be removed, a virtual
consolidation effected and a monopolv

'The Northern Securities company
does not have andlnever Lad any cap
ital sutlicient to warrant such a stu
pendous operation." continued Mr.
Knox. "Its subscribed capital was but
?30.0t0, and its authorized capital stock
of $4uo,(X0,0O) Is Just sufficient, when
all issued, to represent and cover the
exchange value of substantially the
entire stock of the Great Northern and
Northern I'acific railway companies
upon the basis and at the rate agreed
uiKin. which is about $ 122.Ut)0.U00 in
excess of the combined capital stock
of the two railway companies taken
"If the government falls to prevent
the carrying out of this combination
or conspiracy, not only will a virtual
consolidation of two competing trans
continental lines, with the practical
pooling of their earnings, be effected,
but a monoioly of the interstate and
foreign commerce, formerly carried on
by them as competitors, be created and
all effective competition tetween such
lines in the carrying of Interstate and
foreign traffic Ikj destroyed, but there
after all transcontinental lines.
Indeed the eiAire railway systems of
the country, may Ikj absorbed, merged
and consolidated, thus placing the pub
lic at the absolute mercy of the hold
Throughout the petition of Attorney
General Knox there are manifest an
aggressive spirit and a determination to
fight the matter to n finish. There is
no mincing of words or handling of
the subject with gloves. The case for

involving the entire right side of the
face, both eyes and lipB. The affected
parts were a mass of mc rusted matter,
discharging profusely, the appearance
being so offensive that it was difficult
to remain in the room with him. He
reported as follows: The discharge be

ily bcanio wore. Hv entered St. Michael's Hospital early in October,
l'JOU, !id remained there under treatment three months and a half, until
January 27, 1JU1, without improvement, and was then discharged from
the hospital. A month later he came to us. Liquozone was administered
internally and us a local dressing in strength 1-4, gradually increasing to
cqu;U rarts. The improvement was observed almost at once; the dis
charge gradually ceased, the general health improved, and at the end of
twelve weeks his . fare was perfectly clear. He is now entirely well. The

Whichever way the suit goes, the
final decision must have farreaching ef
fect. 'Should the government lose its
suit and the supreme court uphold the
decision of the circuit court. It will
show' that a method has been discov
ered and indirectly sanctioned by
which all the railroads of the country
may, practically speaking, be merged
Into one control. There might be one
great merger or there might be groups
of mergers, with an "understanding"
The point, however, would be settled
that a company could buy a controlling
Interest in the securities of railroads
which are parallel and competing lines
without violating the antitrust law and
that the railroad managers had discov
ered a way to combine as extensively
as they saw Gt.
Should the government win the suit,
the question of the legality of other
trausiortation systems now operating
parallel and competing lines would be
raised. For Instance, no less than three
large railroml systems entering New
York city operate, under the same In

makes the prosjH?ct of Mr. Knox's win
