count against the mines the cars furnished for such fuel supply permits them to make advantageous contracts and to get their coal at a lower price; that if they counted their own fuel cars in the distribution they would not only have to pay a higher price for their coal, but might not be able to contract for it at all. Traer v. C. & A. R. R. Co. 451.
Fuel is necessary and essential to the operation of a railroad, and the right of a carrier to contract for the purchase of its fuel supply with one mine or with a number of mines must be conceded; but if a carrier and a mine owner make a contact for the fuel supply of the carrier which does violence to the act to regulate commerce or to the decisions of the courts or is opposed to public policy they are in no better position than the parties to any other contract which violates the legal principles relating thereto, A carrier can not inject illegalities in such contract and have it upheld on the ground of compelling necessity.
