The Essential Facility Doctrine... a significant ruling...

Federal Supreme Court ends monopoly...



Item # 677089

December 17, 1912

THE CALL, San Francisco, California, December 17, 1912  The front page of this issue features a banner headline "Huge Anthracite Coal Combine Is Destroyed By Federal Supreme Court" with subheads "Six Railroads Held Monopoly In Perpetuity", "Through Fuel Companies Which They Controlled Transportation Concerns Had Contracts to Purchase Output of the 'Independent' Mines for All Time" "Decision Assures Relief to Public" and more. "The federal supreme court today canceled as violative of the Sherman law the contracts by which railroad owned coal companies in the Pennsylvania anthracite fields had purchased the output for all time of 'independent' mines...".  This is considered a significant ruling, and was the first to successfully use the "The Essential Facility Doctrine" as an argument.

The sports page has an article pertaining to boxer Frank Moran who was preparing for upcoming matches.
Other stories of the day, sports and advertisements are within.

This is complete in 18 pages and is in good condition. Should be handled with some care.
