The Northwestern Paper Trust, on trial at St. Paul, Minn., surrendered its case last week. This may lead to the dissolution of other trusts and combinations. The recent decision of the Supreme Court of the United States makes this possible. This decision was to the effect that corporations that are accused of violating the law cannot plead the right of immunity. The court held that a corporation could not be imprisoned, that it was a creature of the public and that it must disclose its books and papers and other documentary evidence bearing upon an alleged infringement of the law.
Suit against this combination was begun by the Attorney General Dec. 27, 1904. It was alleged that manufacturers of paper, controlling and supplying the entire territory west of Chicago and east of the Rocky Mountains, had entered into an agreement to cease competing and to sell for one price, and for that purpose recognized as their selling agent the General Paper Company. Twenty-three independent firms and corporations engaged in the manufacture of paper entered into an agreement, and in consequence the price of printing paper and papers of other kinds was gradually advanced.
President Roosevelt has sent to Congress the report of the International Waterways Commission on the preservation of Niagara Falls. The report contains recommendations for the restriction of the amount of water to be diverted for power purposes, and suggests that the amount of water to be diverted be limited either by treaty or by legislation. The limitation is placed at 36,000 cubic feet per second from the Canadian side, and 18,500 cublic feet per second from the American side, in addition to 10,000 cublic feet per second authorized for the Chicago drainage canal, or more than one quarter of the entire amount which leaves the river.
