Definition of bondholder:
Farmers' Loan and Trust Company, decided by the Supreme Court in 1894. This case came up from the Federal circuit court of Texas which had enjoined the state railway commissioners from fixing and putting into effect railway rates which the Trust Company, as a bondholder and interested party, contended were too low, although not confiscatory.- "Contemporary American History, 1877-1913", Charles A. Beard.
But while it acts with fidelity toward the bondholder who loaned his money that the integrity of the Union might be preserved, it should at the same time observe good faith with the great masses of the people, who, having rescued the Union from the perils of rebellion, now bear the burdens of taxation, that the Government may be able to fulfill its engagements.- "Complete State of the Union Addresses from 1790 to the Present", Various.
