CHATTEL MORTGAGE-LIEN FOLLOWS PROPERTY.-The lien of a mortgage on chattels duly recorded as required by the law of a State where they are located is held, in Shapard v. Ilynes (C. C. A. 8th C.), 52 L. R. A. 675, to follow the property when it is taken into another State, either with or without the consent of the mortgagee, and not to be destroyed by a local statute merely prescribing how such mortgages shall be executed and recorded. See Craig v. Williams, 90 Va. 500; Acts 1A93-4, p. 545. STREET RAILWAYS-CONSOLIDATION-MONOPOLIES.-The consolidation of street railway lines, authorized by ordinance because the public interests seem to demand it, is held, in Wood v. Seattle (Wash.), 52 L. R. A. 369, not to be in violation of a constitutional provision prohibiting monopolies, trusts, and combinations of companies for the purpose of fixing prices, or limiting production, or regulating transportation of any product or commodity. A note to this case reviews the authorities on the right of corporations to consolidate.
