      White Star Line Between Buffalo and Crystal Beach Affected.
The Michigan Supreme Court has decided that the pool entered into a number of years ago by the White Star line, the Darius Cole Transportation Company and the Red Star line, whlch were practically to create a monopoly of the carrying of freight and passengers between Toledo and Port Huron, was clearly within the prohibition of the Federal statute as defined in the Sherman Act, and, therefore unlawful and Invalid.
The decision was rendered in a case brought by the White Star Line Company against the other parties to the contract to compel them to contribute toward the expense of defending the claim and paying the judgment of $15,000 obtained against the complainant at Algonac when the companies were operating the steamers GREYHOUND, DARIUS COLE, ARUNDEL and CITY OF TOLEDO under the arrangement which the court says was void.
The case against the White Star line was settled by the payment of $8000, the boat line and the owner of the dock at
Algonac contributing $4000 each. The other companies to the carrying compact did not enter their appearance or assist
in defending the case or in paying the judgment. On the trial in the court below a decree for the defendants was entered. The Supreme Court, in affirming this decree, therefore, leaves the White Star Company without legal redress against the other companies.
The White Star line operated the steamers DARIUS COLE, ARUNDEL, and IDEWILD between Buffalo and Crystal beach last summer.
