trade and commerce. The opinion
handed down by Judge Hazel, sitting
in equity, in the case of the Lackawan
na railroad against sixty-pne ticket
scalpers, is quoted ,in which case the
petition of the railroad company to re
strain and inhibit the defendant ticket-scalpers
from dealing in pan-American
excursion tickets, was thrown .out
of court; his decision beitfg that tho
company -was not entitled tp the pro
tection of tho laws. It is argued that
this evidence produced in Judge Hazel's
court is aniple and sufficient evidence
and probable cause on which the at-.torney-general
may institute proceed
ings under the statute.
' The petitioners allege that numerous
other trusts exist than those men
tioned; that evidence of the existence
of such other trusts can be furnished if
necessary; that their existence is open
and notorious to the minds of the peo
ple of the United States; that this
.other- evidence will be furnished if re
quested by the attorney general; that
the existence of trusts is admitted by
the public editorials and articles in
every leading newspaper; in the United
States; that during the last session of
congress their existence was admitted
by the declaration of every member of
congress who addressed himself to the
subject; and that an act was passed
by the house of representatives which
purported to further restrict their
operations in the United States.
v "The existence of these dangerous
combinations is further proven by
facts Jmown to all men," it is de
clared, "that in the platforms of the
republican, democratic, and populist
parties, adopted at their last national
conventions, they all recognized the ex
istence of these illegal combinations
and vigorously denounced them. It
therefore, being thus stated by men of
all parties, by the executive and legis
lative departments of tho government,
and having been recognized by the
judicial department of the government
in various opinions rendered by
tho supreme court, and also having
been recognized by a largo number of
states in their constitutions by incor
porating clauses therein, denouncing
these monopolies, trusts, and combina
tions and providing laws for inflicting
upon them civil and penal punishment.
"Your petitioners would further
show that, even though it should bo
denied that these combinations exist,
or that they are now violating tho law
enacted by congress entitled 'An act to
protect trade and commerce against
unlawful restraints and monopolies,'
that it is the duty of the attorney gen
eral" to prevent and restrain a contem
plated violation of tho said law when
ever and wherever there is probable
cause for instituting such proceed
ings as are provided for by the said
"Your petitioners will cheerfully
furnish evidence no.w in their posses
sion and gladly assist you by furnish
ing you through their organizations
whatever information and aid you may
desire from them.
"Your petitioners therefore pray that
you either institute yourself, in the
proper courts, 'prosecutions against
these violators ot the law, or that you
may authorize in tho various districts
of the United States your subordinates.
the respective district attorneys in
these districts, to commence prosecu
tion at once for tho past violations of
this law in their respective districts,
and at the same time instruct them at
once to file before the various courts
of. the United States petitions such as
are provided for by the terms of said
law, in equity, to restrain and pre
vent impending and future violations
of this law.
"That these and all such other and
general proceedings may be taken
against tho aforesaid trusts and com
binations as to you may seem meet,
your petitioners in duty bound will
ever pray," etc.
