“...We are of the opinion that there is a clear distinction in this particular between an individual and a corporation, and that the latter has no right to refuse to submit its books and papers for examination on the suit of the State. The individual may stand upon his Constitutional Rights as a Citizen. He is entitled to carry on his private business in his own way. His power to contract is unlimited. He owes no duty to the State or to his neighbors to divulge his business, or to open his doors to investigation, so far as it may tend to incriminate him. He owes no such duty to the State since he receives nothing there from, beyond the protection of his life, liberty, and property. His Rights are such as the law of the land long antecedent to the organization of the state, and can only be taken from him by due process of law, and in accordance with the Constitution. Among his Rights  are  the  refusals  to  incriminate  himself,  and  the  immunity  of  himself  and  his property from arrest or seizure except under warrant of law. He owes nothing to the public so long as he does not trespass upon their rights.”  [Emphasis added] Hale vs. Hinkel, 201 U.S. 43, 74-75, (1906).
