Holds to Old Common Law,
Lincoln, Nov. 12. Of Intense inter
est to the owners of land adjoining
tho MIssousi river is tho case of Will
iam Klnkead against C, W. Turgeon
and others, In which a former opinion
of the court," written by Judgo Old
ham, Is vacated and new law in tho
matter of accreted lands is given in
Nebraska. Tho court holda that
where tho Missouri river changes its
course and abandons its former bed
tho respective riparian owners are en
titled to the possession and owner
ship of tho soil formerly under tho
waters as far as tho thread of tho
stream, and may maintain ejectment
to oust squatters within such limits:
Tho opinion was written by Judgo

granted because of tho questions of

court cleaves to tho old common law
of England on tho subject of rlparlnn
ownership, holding that such doctrine

tution of the state and nation. The
opinions of tho supremo court of tho
United States have hold that tho own
ership of land In tho former bed of

of tho subjects that lias hoc n discussed

"Wo have been informed," a mem
ber of the commission said, "that thla
bjsiein in some of Its features Is not
unlike tho Northern Securities com
pany, which was dissolved through the
intervention of tho attorney general
of tho United States."
Any steps which may bo taken by
tho commission along tho lines re
ferred to will bo, It Is said, In accord
ance with tho gcnoral powers of the
commission conferred by law and not
because of an immediate specific com
plaint of a violation of tho statutes.

mission will take up the complaint of
tho municipality of Spokane against
tho Northern Pacific, tho Great North

ance, as its disposition will logically
havo a bearing on tho whole question
of transportation from tho west. It is
also of Importnnco in connection with
tho proposed investigation of tho Hnr
