profits, at the will, or for the benefit, of another; an
estate held for the use of another; a confidence

8. An equitable right or interest in property distinct from
the legal ownership thereof; a use (as it existed before

9. A business organization or combination consisting of a
number of firms or corporations operating, and often
united, under an agreement creating a trust (in sense 1),
esp. one formed mainly for the purpose of regulating the
supply and price of commodities, etc.; often,
opprobriously, a combination formed for the purpose of
controlling or monopolizing a trade, industry, or
business, by doing acts in restraint or trade; as, a sugar
trust. A trust may take the form of a corporation or of a
body of persons or corporations acting together by mutual
arrangement, as under a contract or a so-called
gentlemen's agreement. When it consists of corporations it
may be effected by putting a majority of their stock
either in the hands of a board of trustees (whence the
name trust for the combination) or by transferring a
majority to a holding company. The advantages of a trust
are partly due to the economies made possible in carrying
on a large business, as well as the doing away with
competition. In the United States severe statutes against
trusts have been passed by the Federal government and in
many States, with elaborate statutory definitions.

TRUST, contracts, devises. An equitable right, title or interest in
property, real or personal, distinct from its legal ownership; or it is a
personal obligation for paying, delivering or performing anything, where the
person trusting has no real. right or security, for by, that act he confides
altogether to the faithfulness of those entrusted. This is its most general
meaning, and includes deposits, bailments, and the like. In its more
technical sense, it may be defined to be an obligation upon a person,
arising out of a confidence reposed in him, to apply property faithfully,
and according to such confidence. Willis on Trustees, 1; 4 Kent, Com. 295; 2
Fonb. Eq. 1; 1 Saund. Uses and Tr. 6; Coop. Eq. Pl. Introd. 27; 3 Bl. Com.
2. Trusts were probably derived from the civil law. The fidei
commissum, (q.v.) is not dissimilar to a trust.
3. Trusts are either express or implied. 1st. Express trusts are those
which are created in express terms in the deed, writing or will. The terms
to create an express trust will be sufficient, if it can be fairly collected
upon the face of the instrument that a trust was intended. Express trusts
are usually found in preliminary sealed agreements, such as marriage
articles, or articles for the purchase of land; in formal conveyances, such
as marriage settlements, terms for years, mortgages, assignments for the
payment of debts, raising portions or other purposes; and in wills and
testaments, when the bequests involve fiduciary interests for private
benefit or public charity,, they may be created even by parol. 6 Watts &
Serg. 97.
4.-2d. Implied trusts are those which without being expressed, are
deducible from the nature of the transaction, as matters of intent; or which
are superinduced upon the transaction by operation of law, as matters of
equity, independently of the particular intention of the parties.
5. The most common form of an implied trust is where property or money
is delivered by one person to another, to be by the latter delivered to a
third person. These implied trusts greatly extend over the business and
pursuits of men: a few examples will be given.
6. When land is purchased by one man in the name of another, and the
former pays the consideration money, the land will in general be held by the
grantee in Trust for the person who so paid the consideration money. Com.
Dig. Chancery, 3 W 3; 2 Fonb. Eq. book 2, c. 5, Sec. 1, note a. Story, Eq.
Jur. Sec. 1201.
7. When real property is purchased out of partnership funds, and the
title is taken in the name of one of the partners, he will hold it in trust
for all the partners. 7 Ves. jr. 453; Montague on Partn. 97, n.; Colly.
Partn. 68.
8. When a contract is made for the sale of land, in equity the vendor
is immediately deemed a trustee for the vendee of the estate; and the
vendee, a trustee for the vendor of the purchase money; and by this means
there is an equitable conversion of the property. 1 Fonb. Eq. book 1, ch. 6,
Sec. 9, note t; Story, Eq. Jur. SSSS 789, 790, 1212. See Conversion. For the
origin of trusts in the civil law, see 5 Toull. Dr. Civ. Fr. liv. 3, t. 2,
c. 1, n. 18; 1 Brown's Civ. Law, 190. Vide Resulting Trusts. See, generally,
