152 Ky. 589 reversed.

The facts, which involve the constitutionality under the Fourteenth Amendment of certain provisions of the Antitrust Act of the State of Kentucky, are stated in the opinion.

Memorandum opinion by MR. JUSTICE McKENNA, by direction of the Court:

Plaintiff in error was convicted in the Circuit Court of Barren County, Kentucky, and fined for alleged violation of §§ 3915 and 3941a of the Kentucky laws, commonly known as the Kentucky Anti-Trust Statutes, and prosecutes this writ to review the judgment.

The grounds of error assigned are: (1) that the statutes in question are in conflict with the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States; (2) that the particular transactions involved were transactions of interstate commerce, and protected from state regulation by the commerce clause of the Constitution of the United States.

These grounds were presented to the lower court first by demurrer, which was overruled, and, after answer and trial to a jury, by a request for peremptory instructions for defendant.

The sections of the laws of Kentucky referred to were declared to be invalid by this Court under the Fourteenth Amendment because they, as construed by the Court of chanroblesvirtualawlibrary

It is not necessary to pass on any other question.
