The United States supremo court
has decided that the merger of the
Northern Pacific and Great Northern
Railroad companiesto destroy compe
tition was in breach of the Sherman
That act makes ' violations of its
provisions a (crime.
Justice Holmes in his minority opin
ion went straight to the point when
"The statute of which we find tho
meaning is a criminal statute. The
two sections on which the government
relies both mate certain acts crimes.
"That is their immediate puipote
and that is what they say. It is in
vain to insist that this is not a crim
inal proceeding. Tho words cannot
read one way in a suit which is to end
in fine and imprisonment, and an
other way in one which seeks an in
junction. "What I now ask is under which of
tho foregoing classes this case' is sup
posed to come, and that Question must
be answered as definitely and precisely
as if we were 1ealing with the indict
ments which logically ought to follow
Manifestly Justice Holmes Is right
The language of the act forbids all
doubt upon the pubject The Sherman
anti-trust law is as dofinito In Its pen
alties as Is tho statuto forbidding
And there should bo no more hesita
tion about indicting James J. Hill
than there Is about indicting a bur
glar who has been caught in tho act.
The Sherman act provides that "ev
ery person" who violates it "shall bo
deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and
on conviction thereof shalj bo pun
ished by a fine not exceeding ?5,000 or
by imprisonment not exceodlng ono
year, or both, said punishments at tho
discretion of tho court'
Under this law, which tho supremd
court convicts him of having broken,
James J. Hill, president of, the North
ern Securities company, can bo in
dicted, prosecuted and sent to jail..
Why should any tenderness ho
shown him? Poor men aro not al
lowed to break tho law and escape
tho consequences. Shall Hill bo ex
empt from punishment because ho l
wealthy? Is there to bo ono kind of
justice for tho poor aud another for
the rich? Will President Roosevelt
have tho courage to Instruct his attor
ney general to procure immediate in
dictment of Hill the courage to en
force the law against an offender who
is at once rich and politically influen
tial? If tho weapon for destroying the
criminal trusts offered to the adminis
tration .by tho supremo court be re
jected because of political timidity,
then the usefulness of Monday's deci
sion to tho robbed peoplo will be very
small while Mr. Roosevelt remains in
Attorney General Knox hastens to
reassure the alarmed trusts by volun
teering tho announcement that "tho
government does not mean to run
This remarkable utteiance, read In
tho light of Mr. Knox's constant
sheltering kindi.ess to tho coal trust
and other predatory combines, will bo
universally understood to signify that
the government does not mean to ap
ply the law as it has been laid down
by the supreme court unless the
president, whose subordinate Mr.
Knox Is, shall order him to change his
James J. Hill is precisely the kind of
man that should be pursued with ail
possible vigor by the government. He
is a fine type of tho "captains of in
dustry" who rely upon their wealth
and the political pull which their
wealth gives to insure them against
the law's penalties while they gather
in unearned millions outside tho law.
Is, the president of the Northern
Securities company to enjoy immunity
because he is a millionaire and tho
partner of millionaires as contemptu
ous of the law as ho himself has now
been proved to be?
Is he tp be privileged to "run
amuck" against statutes designed to
protect the peoplo of the United States
from industrial monopolists and free
booters? The people have a right to demand
that President Roosevelt and his at
torney general shall extend no mercy
to notoriously thieving trusts.
The public is entitled to relief from
spoliation which tho supreme courts
decision if honestly carried into ef
fect by the attorney general against
tho Northern Securities company and
otner monopolies will give them.
If President Roosevelt cares to bo
thought sincere in his professed de
sire to curb the trusts, if he is not
afraid of their power to hurt him
politically, he will make a salutary
example of the head and front of the
criminal railroad combination which
the supreme court hao smashed.
In loyalty to tho violated law, in.
the interest of tho trust-ridden and
trust-pillaged American people now
and hereafter, it is the duty of the
president to order his attorney general J
to procure tho indictment of James J.
Hill and send him to jail, where he be
longs. Chicago American. .
