Decision summarized. The main Heads of the decision of the court May be summarized As follows that the natural effect of the merger agreement was to prevent Competition and therefore it was subject to the Sher Man act which embraces not Only monopolies which have been consummated but attempts to monopolize As Well. That in order to prove that a Combina Tion or a monopoly existed within the meaning of the act it was not necessary to show that the immediate effect is to suppress Competition or establish a monopoly. It was sufficient to show that the combinations tended to do those things and bring about those results. Trust principles hit hard. Thai a combination of competing lines of interstate railway is a combination of Trade within the meaning of the anti Trust act. That it is no violation of the reserved rights of the states but on the contrary it is clearly within the Federal Power for Congress to prohibit anything which has a tendency to restrain interstate Trade.
