DECLARED TO BE ILLEGAL
United States Court at St. Paul Gives a Knock-Out Blow to
the Big Railroad Merger,
St. Paul, April 9. A decision In fa- j
or ot the United Stales, was given
at noon h Judgo Sanborn In the
United States district court He ad-'
judged that the combination of the
Groat Northern nnd Northern Pacific
stocks was In restraint of trade nnd
enjoins the Northern Securities from
otlng the stock of either company
nnd the officials to vote their stock
or pay dividends to tho Security Com
pany. The Northern Pacific and Great
Northern docks can be returned to
the previous holders.
By this decision the greatest rail
way merger In the world Is complete
ly knocked out. The decision Is tho
most sweeping ever aimed at combi
nations or so called trusts. It was
unanimously agreed to by Sanborn,
Caldwell. Thayer and Vandcrvcnter.
Judge Sanborn wrote the decree.
History of Merger.
Judge Thayer in stating the conclu
sion of the fouit, lecounted the his-
....... nr il. rn, n . ....... nt
stock acquired is $in-,000,000 par
value, which was purchased for $200
per share. They increased tho bond
ed Indebtedness of the new company
to $200,000,000. This stock Included
all the Burlington route purchased by
the Northern Paclfli, the Gieal
Northern acting ln conjunction. A
single owner was formed in the
Northern Securities Company, with a
capital stock of $400,000,000.
At present the securities company
holds 9fl per cent of the Northern
Pacific stock and 70 per cent of the
Great Northern. This destroyed
every motive of competition.
"We must conclude." runs the de
cision, "that those who conceived nnd
executed the aforesaid plan Intended
among other things to accomplish
The decision then describes the
Sherman anti-trust act under which
the suit was brought as making Ille
gal every contract or combination In
the form of trust or otherwise, as
conspiracy In the restraint of trade
or commeice among the several
states and with foreign nations.
Such combinations as these railway
mergers was foreseen, hence the use
of the word otherwise.
On this word hangs tho whole de
cision or tho court. Competition
could not be more effectually re
strained than it now is by this com
bination than if two roads were op
erated under one charter and for this
reason tho Northern Securities comes
under the jurisdiction of the Shormnn
anti-trust lnw. Tho state of New Jer
sey Issued their charter with tho un
derstanding that tho Northern Se
curities should not set nt defiance
the laws ln eongrcss.
Anti-Trust Act Violated.
The suggestion that tho decision
against the Northern Securities Com
pany would tend to Interfere with the
constitutional rights of buying nnd
selling Is viewed by tbo judges as be
ing worthy of little consideration.
The contention that tho securities
rase does not come under tho Juris
diction or the anti-trust "bill for tho
renson that It held a majority or the
stock or two railways beforo the bill
was filed. Is characterized as absurd.
The Judges will neither affirm or
deny that the combination In a broad
sense Is beneficial to tho public rath
er than harmful: thnt tho motives In
spiring the combination nre laudnblo
and that the organizers did not enter
tho combination to protect tho Im
mense Interests commlted to their
charge, or that the combination was
an Initial step of stiidcudous designs
which If conceived would bo of Ines
timable value to tho communities.
These are characterized as ques
tions of public policy which congress
must determine. Tho solo question
was whether the nntl-trust net had
been violated and tho judges reply in
WALL STREET SURPRISED.
Northern Securities at First Broke
Case Expected to Be Taken to Su
New York, April 9. News of tho
adverso decision ln tho Northern Se
curities case reached Wall street at
12:30 this afternoon. Its stock broke
Horn 100 to 103. An evidence of
support Is noticed at this point to
prevent total demoralization. The
news came ns a complete surprise to
the street. Tho street expects that
the case will bo taken to the supreme
court, hence there Is no later dispo
sition to throw the securities over

New York, April 9. A member of
tho firm of J. P. Morgan & Co., also
counsel for dough, declined this
