In the early 1890s, the American Sugar Refining Company purchased stock in four other refineries, formerly competitors, including the E.C. By 1892, American Sugar Refining controlled 98 percent of the nation’s refineries.Suit was brought by the Cleveland administration, alleging that an illegal restraint of trade in interstate commerce had occurred under the terms of the Sherman Antitrust Act.In 1895, a nearly united Supreme Court ruled eight to one against the government, reasoning that manufacturing (sugar refining) was not interstate commerce and, therefore, not subject to Congressional regulation.The impact of this decision was tremendous. Little progress would be made to combat manufacturing monopolies until the trust-busting days of the Teddy Roosevelt administration.

    It's amazing how you, with a fairly calm style in terms of blog design, were able to put everything together so competently. Here the text, and the table of contents and links and navigation are cool. I've started making design two times, but I have never been able to come up with an idea. If you ever decide to do charity work and put your template in free access, then I will be the first to download it, only the tags are not fashionable yet. saw schaz spinning already. See you in the blogosphere
