"The existence of immense, aggregations of kindred en

ought to be open to everindependent activity. r . legit
imate strife in business should not be superceded by
enforced concession to the demands of combinations
that have power to destroy ; nor should the pcopjo to be
served lose the 'benefit of cheapness, which usually re
sults from wholesome competition. These aggrega
tions and combinations frequently constitute conspir
acies against the interests of the people, and in' all-;
their phases they are unnatural and ? opposed to . our

when death ended his useful life did she go
