Tho nonalty liljoscd on tho com
pany Is tho maximum permitted un
der tho law and it wan announced at
tho ond of a long opinion, In which
tho methods and practices of tho
Standard Oil Company wero merci
lessly scored. The Judge, In fact, de
clared In his opinion that tho offi
cials of tho Standard Oil Company
who wero responsible for tho prac
tices of -which tho corporation was
found guilty, wore no better than
counterfeiters and thieves, his exact
"Wo naay as woll look at this sit
uation squarely. Tho men who thus
deliberately violated this law wound
society more deeply than does ho
who counterfeits tho coin or steals
letters from tho mall. Tho nominal
defendant is tho Standard Oil Com
pany of Indiana, a million-dollar cor
poration. The Standard Oil Company
of New Jersey, whoso capital Is
$100,000,000, is tho real defendant.
This is for the reason that, If a body
of men organize a largo corporation
under the laws of ono state for tho
purpose of carrying on business
throughout tho United States and for
the accomplishment of that purpose
absorb tho stock of other corpora
tions, such corporations so absorbed
havo thenceforth but a nominal
existence. They cannot Initiate or
execute any inherent business policy,
their elimination in this respect be
ing a prime consideration for their
I absorption. So, when after tnia pro
cess nas taKen piaco, a cnuiu in wm
mltted In tho name of such smaller
corporation, the law will not consid
er that tho latter corporation Is the
real offender. And where tne only
possible motive of the crime Is the
finhanr.ement of dividends and tho
only punishment authorized is a fine.
great caution must ue exercisea lest
tho fixing of a small amount encour
age tho defendant to further viola
tions by esteeming the penalty to be
In tho nature of a license.
"The defendant argues that to
hold It for 1,462 offenses would be a
violation of tho constitutional pro
hibition against the imposition of
AxrnRslvo fines .and It Is urged' that
congress could never have Intended
to confer upon the court sucn power.
It la the view of the court that for
the law to take from one of Its cor
porate creatures as a penalty ior tno
commission of a dividend-producing
crime less than one-third of its net
revenues accrued during the period
of violation falls far Bhort of the im
nosltlon of an excessive fine, and
surely to do this would not bo the

employed when a sentence Is Im

Washington. Auc. 6. Two ave
nues of possible escape are open to
the Standard Oil Company, but
whether one or both are taken the
government will be found strongly
intrenched, confident of repeating
the victory it scored In Judgo Lan-
dis' court. The truBt may appeal to
the Circuit Court of Appeals on a
writ of error, or to the Supreme
Court of the United States on con
stitutional grounds. One appeal will
not conflict with the otner, and no
further appeal lies in either case.
The Circuit Court of Appeals has
final Jurisdiction in questions of er
ror affectlne the law in the case, and
so far as Judge Landis' official acta
in the construction of the law aro
concerned, the Supreme Court of tho
United States can only consider ono
Under article 8 ot the Constitu
tion, "excessive bail shall not be re
quired, nor excessive fines Imposed,
nor cruel and unusual punishments
inflicted." In the opinion of offi
cials of the Department of Justice,
the case can reach the Supremo
Court on tho ground that tho $29,-
240,000 fine is excessive, because
the Standard Oil Company of In
diana, the defendant, has capital
stock of only $1,000,000 and assets
of only $10,000,000. The astuto
lawyers employed by the trust may
find other constitutional questions to
raise In the Supreme Court, ,
The government is ready to meet
such an Issue and is confident of
victory. It will reply that the Stand
ard Oil Company ot Indiana is, as
Judge Landis has construed, tho
Standard Oil Company of New Jer
sey, the great Standard trust, in fact,
and that the fine Imposed upon the
trust must be measured by the re
sources of the trust, and not ono of
tho subsidiary, dummy branches.
