Colo.. Sept. 24.—In an opia- ion announced toilay by the Cnitetl states circuit court of appeals, sitting a Denver, the judgment ofjlhe district -oiirt for .Minnesota against the Great \orihern railroad rebate cases, where in the road w-as finetl $ir >.00iJ, was prac ic.ill .N aflirnied. The circuit court hoids that the-Hep lurii tict is an amendatory act and not I repealing act: that insofar as it re- petils <jr reproducer portions of the KIkins act il continues them in force ml makes no bfeak in the law, and h.-ii iii.scfar :is it omits or changes provision;; ot the Elkins act it repeals them. The a;-i of granting rebates was admitted ])\ the Great Xorthern railroad eoiii )iany ;ii the trial, ahd the Only '^lUesiion presented by the defendant was whether or not the Elkins act ot i;*i',':, making it an offense and fixing punishment for granting rebates',was repealed by the Hepburn act ot 190G in such a way that thereafter there could be no prosecution of offenses comiiiited prior to the appeal. The district court ruled against this contention of the railway company and (he appeal'lo the circuit court of app(?als. , The decision was written by Judge- Vaiidevenier. and is concurred in by .ludge Adams an,d;,Riner. The case, originally was a criminal prosecution, against the (.Ireat Xorthern Railway company in the district court of the l.'nited Stales for .Minnesota, and the offenses (harged in. the indictment con sisied of granting rebates upon each of firteeti distinct carload shipments of corn and oats-sliipped b.v a Minneapolis dealer in- Minneapolis to Seat- ibt.docing the nionths ot ^pril. May,— ' Ouae and July. W6. The schedule of the railway at that time fixed the rate upon these coni- aicdities at cents a 100 pounds, and the rebates graiited consisted of allowances ranging from l .'i to 20 cents a 100 pounds. The niaxin\uni fine in this case is $20,000 for each offense, and there are over a dozen-cases of groat imjiortance awaiting the result of the decision lianded down today, notably four cases in Kaiisas City, where the .Arntoiii'; Cudahy, §wift and -Morris Packing companies were each fined Jiri .ufMj for ;ic<:epting rebates. Affects Standard Fine. St. Paul. Minn;, Sept. 24.—United State.i District Attorney Haupt, when informed of the decision of the court at Denver, gave the following statement of tlie Great-Northern railway case and its bearing on other cases now jiending before the court at Denver: . "The (|uestion. passed upon is of supreme importance. It involvea the right to jirosecute any and all cases for the Riving of;rebates. "The validity-. i>f the Standard Oil company line of $29.000!000 depends in a large measure on this decision, for it will have an almost controlling inlluenee of the decision ot the court of appeals in the Chicago dfajtrict, where the Standard Oil comiKiny appeals on exactly similar gropnds. If the decision had been otherwise it w-ould hav(? stopi>eii-alI prosecutions in the Eighth distric^ for rebates, concessions, etc. "The Great Northern company here, and the Standard Oil company in Chicago, claimed that Section 10 of the Hepburn law- jfbntained a provision wliich granted immunity for all offenses committed prior to the passage of the Hepburn !aw, except those cases in which indictments had l^een found when the law- w-ent into effect. In other words, thai Section 10;of the Hepburn law had the effect to repeal Section 1 of the Elkins. law. "In this respect the decision is a great victory for the government, and all other eases bow pending in >f nne- soia against other railroad companies foutgiving rebates will be prosecuted 10 a conclusion. "There were four indictments against the Great Northern Railway coiiijiany. and in this particular indictment, the road practically pleaded guiiiy, but took the ground that the government had no right to prosecute under the law. ."There are eleven Indicttnents of tills same nature in this district, and all of them will be saved by this decision. The Omaha road, one'of these defendants, was fined $20,000 and the Wisconsin Central $17,000 and both their cases have gone to the circuit court of appeals on this same point, and other points."- HEADY FOK CAMP.
