(F"rom a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Nov. 11 8peclal.) Attorney
General Brown and former Chief Justlc
Bulllvan. In their brief on the suit for an
Injunction against the Nebraska Grain
Dealer' association and the members and
officials thereof, which was filed In the su
preme court today, claim that the evolution
of society bas made It Imperative to ex
tend the operation of Injunctions for tha
prevention of Illegal combinations and
agreements for the control of prices as tha
only adequate remedy for the protection of
the Interests of the general public,' thus
answering the plea of the numerous coun
sel for the grain dealers that the equity
powers of the court cannot be Invoked.
While the gist of the first brief filed by
.'he attorneys for the grain dealers was tha
illeged unconstitutionality of severs stat
utes, the second brief prepared by a large
number of eminent lawyers devoted Itself
!o tho argument that tha state had no
lght to seek a restraining order against
:he defendants, but must resort to quo
warranto or criminal proceedings against
the Individual members.
Attorney General Brown contends that
the Injunction Is the only effective remedy
for the trust and combination evil. He
These cases show that It Is conclusively
pstftbllnhed by the chnncery courts of Eng
land, by the courts of last resort of many
states of the union, and by the supreme
srourt of the United States, that the equity
power derived from the common law may
exercised to prevent monopolies from
'njurlng the public; that this power may
be exercised to prevent acts punishable as
'time, and that It may be Invoked by the
tate rexardless of pecuniary Injury thereto
or the existence of a nuisance. It is ulso
tRtabllshed beyond question by the cases
?ited Hint the anti-truest statutes denoun
cing; monopolies and combinations in re
itralnt of trade do not take from the courts
Jf equity their power under the common
iiiw to prevent such Injuries to the public.
He Insists that the courts have a power
'.ndependent of the statutes to curb trusts
ihroueh Aha Issuance of Injunctions, and
:hat tha validity of the statutes Is an Im
material factor, as long as the petition
lets out facts showing grave Injury to the
grain celling public.
It must not be forgotten that the de
fendants are here admitting by their sev
eral demurrers the facts charged in the
Information to be true. They confess to
In- conspirators, all of them, corporations
and individuals alike.
o Other Remedy Effective.
The learned and eminent counsel for
defendants are mistaken. It Is nut the
purpose of this action to punish the of
fenders and thereby vindicate the criminal
coae. The purpose Is to protect the pub
lic from a continuation of the injury. The
light of the publio to enjoy the benefits
of a free market In the necessaries of life
is one of the highest rights recognized by
the courts. There Is none higher, unless
II be life or liberty; and when It appears
that the law will not protect and cannot
protect that right, it fails to the province
of the court to exercise its equity powers.
No other remedy is even partially ade
quate The public in this case comes to
the court appealing to the conscience and
power of the chancellor. lender the ad
mitted facts In this case the court, how
ever, may well hold with the supreme
court of Wisconsin that the duty to grant
Injunction to protect public rights Is
mandatory, and not a matter of discre
tion. To deny the prerogative writ asked by
the state on the facts stated by sustaining
me several aemurrers would te to say
rither (hat the state Is powerless to sue
In equity; or, that the defendants being '
In purl Individuals and In part corpora
tions cannot be enjoined in a cause, even
though they be Joined In the conspiracy;
or. that being glulty of so many different
nnd separate offenses, they cannot be
Joined, though the offenses are committed
in concert and for a common purpose; or,
tuat neither the statute nor tha common
law are sensible to the wrongs committed
so far as equity is concerned. To say
any of these things Is to destroy the hope
of men that the courts have the power
nd may be trusted to exercise it In the
protection of the public against the men
ace of conspirators in commerce, who ap
pear to be growing more and more greedy
for the possessions of others, and more
and more reckless of the rights of others,
hs tliey become stronger and more opu
lent. The need of the occasion Is not more
legislation by lawmakers, but the applica
tion by the courts of remedies already
provided. Legislative enactments, present
or future, are powerless to cure the evil
that Is Imminent, or to right the wrong
I ready done, unless enforceable in a court
.if equity. In this cape, there Is Imperative
and Immediate need of a Judgment by the
highest court of our state a decree In
r-qulty which is easy and certain of en
forcement and execution and which
trikes at the very existence of the wrongs
alleged. There Is no power except that
rif equity adequate to protect the publio
tcalnst the Injury confessed by the de
murrers to exist The demurrers should
therefore be overruled.
Farmers gland and Deliver.
In the section of the brief prepared by
Judge Sullivan, he describes tha grain
dealers' combination as follows:
The Information shows that defendants
formed a combination or conspiracy to con
trol for their own prcflt the price of grain
produced in this slat". They created a
monopoly of the buslnens of buying and
selling grain. They tlxed for themselves
without reference to the laws of trade
and commerce the profit they should re
ceive out of each bimhel of grain pro
duced in Nebraxka. They ruined Inde
pendent dealers and drove them out of
business. 1 heir profit was measured by
their own rapacity and craft and divided
among themselves. The producers of grain
were nut consulted. Their Dart was to
viand and deliver. The farmers planted and.
la Korea in tne wind ana sun tor tneir har
vest and took their chances with drouth
and storm. Defendants took no chances.

Hints Proseeatloas. y '.
The attorney general s brief In the por
Hon written by Judge Bulllvah dealing
with statutory construction hints at the
possible need of Instituting criminal prose
cutions to supplement the Injunction suit.
The state's contention Is that the act
of 1N57, the act of 1S9J, tha Junktn act and
part of the Oondrlng act (1897) are now In
force, and that the misconduct charged
against defendants was and is within the
reach and grasp of the two general
statutes, though criminal prosecutions and
actions for damages for any of the special
wrongs covered by the special acts may
be, and perhaps must be, brought under
those acts. It Is intimated by some of the
defendants, and directly asserted by others,
that the loo mis act Is Invalid. That, too,
so far as this case Is concerned, may be
conceded to be plaintiff's position, grounded,
however, upon reasons other than those
mentioned In the brief of Conrtrlght &
flldner. This statute, dealing with a
special phase of the trust evil and making
those within Its reach eligible to the pub
lic service at the penitentiary, being ad
mittedly unconstitutional, will be further
noticed only tor tne purpose 01 mi

In the enactment of other laws.
It Is the business of the courts, ha ay.
to determine the legislative will, alnce
there ' are no serious objections to the
procedure which resulted In the adoption
of the act of 1K87, the act of 1883, that of
1897, or the Junkln act.

KILLED BY MOVING MACHINERY
Body of Toons; Man Fonnd Dead nnd
Mangled on Shaft.
BEAVER CITY, Neb., Nov. 18. (Special
Telegram.) The dead and mangled body
of Earl Stearns, an employ of the Beaver
City mills, was found last evening wound
around a shaft of the mill which Is situ
ated a mile west of town. It Is believed
he had been dead for fifteen minutes when
his lifeless body waa discovered by tha
proprietor of tha mill. The scene of the
accident was In the basement where tha
Una shaft Is connected with the water
power and where the various belts and
pulley direct the power to the different
department of the mill. The unfortunate
man had gone to this place to put In
operation an auxiliary part of the ma
chinery. In some way he was entangled
in the moving machinery and met an
awful death whirling around the rapidly
revolving shaft. The lifeless body wa
found dangling from the shaft, the broken
neck and many bruise Indicating that the
body had been subject to ntuch violence.
probably after life was extinct. It la be
lieved the belt which encircled the dead
man' neck had choked out life before
a cry 'of alarm could be given. The con
nection of belts, pulley and shafting In
that part of tha mill I not considered at
all dangerous. Just what accident befell
the young man Is a mystery.
Mr. Steam had been employed at the
mill about a year. He wa 19 year of
age, a member of one of the oldest families
of the county and highly respected.

politician like the member from Central
Bradford might have Influenced an Impul
