HE ARRAIGNS LAWYERS Bitterly Reproached by Angry Husband in Tombs. WOTHER-m-LAW IS HOSTILE Justice Gaynor Says They Make Trusts Possible. RAILROAD REBATES BOBBERY Mew York Jurist Tells Lawyers' Club of Buffalo that Attorneys in Various State Legislatures Pasa Laws to Nulli- fy Anti-trust Decisions of the Courts. Abuse of Power by Railroads. Buffalo, N. Jan. William J Gaynor, of Brooklyn, was the prin- cipal guest at the annual dinner of the Lawyers' Club here to-night. Hla subject was "The Responsibilities of the Bench and Bar." Ho kaid In part. 'Seventy per cent of the in ambers of our legislatures are lawyers They con- tiol the legislation of the country. They are therefore responsible for certain con- ditions existing in the country. The couits broke up the commercial trusts For in- stance, twenty ears ago the sixteen sugar reflnlng corporations entered Into an agreement by which twelve trustees appointed, and then the stockholders of each of them turned over their stock to these trustees, which, of course, gave such trustees absolute control of each of the corporations, and enabled them to elect the board of directors of each, and run all of the corporations as a unit. "Thus, sixteen competing concerns were turned Into one, and competition among them destroyed and prices controlled. In the same way the thirty-nine differ- ent Standard Oil corporations, dispersed all over the country and holding charters from the different States, were turned Into ono monopoly. Lawyers to the Rescue. "In 1890 the highest courts In New York and Ohio declared these combinations il- legal and dissolved them. But what did the lawyers in our legislatures straight- way do? Why, they passed laws to nullify the effect of these judicial deci- sions. They passed statutes enabling creation of corporations to acquire and hold the shares of stock of any other number of corporations without limit." Turning Tils attention to railroads, Judge Gaynor said the country's iron highways were frequently used to ag- grandiza certain individuals, firms, and corporations, and to destroy their rnals in business by favoritism in freight rates. He said favoritism enabled one to under- sell his rival and ruin him and drive him out of business. Rebates Are Robberies. The speaker said the granting of re- bates was a heartless crime, and said .that "the use of our highways to perpetuate It mado it AS bad as common, vulgar, high- way robbery, and that succeeding gener- ations would look back upon us as lost to moral sense to have tolerated It so long." He said that the lawyers had a respon- sibiliu for this ioi It never could have grown up except by their aid or ac- quiescence, and coulcTnot continue if they united in educating the community to  afternoon. until the accident took place No. 66, the passenger train, left Washington Junction, tor Washington on time. The "dead" a few minutes after- ward. Enginer Hildebrand, of the latter, r-ad special orders to run with caution because of still another 'extra train, a was at Bruns- wick, and bound the same way At Tusca- rora, No. 2120 passed this freight, and train Dispatcher Dent testified that the caution responsibility was thereby transferred i from' the engineer of No. 2120 to the engineer of No. 1865 Gained on the Passenger. The "dead" train gained on the passen- 9 ger train from this time on. The passenger train stopped at every station, and_ the special made no stons. No 66 had passed Takoma. when No 2120 was allowed Into the Mock at Silver Spring. The inquiry was marked by the pres- ence of two officials of the Interstate Commerce Commission, which has aifc- nounced that it will begin Friday of this week a rigid investigation of block signal- ing devices, with a view to gaining infor- mation in connection with the several disastrous wrecks that have occurred re- cently on different railroads.
