Railroads Prepare for the Locusts
Nebraska railroads will experiment
with the seventeen year old locust
problem this coming year This is
the year that scientists predict the
locust eggs will hatch and that the
middle western states will again
see the plague of the insects in their
midst eating up the crops
All manner of suggestions are of
fered for dealing with the pests and
some of those may be tried out by
the Burlington railroad All the
railroads of the country are naturally
interested in the subject because if
the crops of the land are damaged
the railroads will have hard picking
with no grain to move

Important Decisions
It has been a long while since the
United States supreme court has
handed down so many decisions of
vast importance effecting railroads
and railroad men as was the case I
on Monday of the present week i
Among the questions decided are
That the passenger has no right
to buy tickets with survices adver
tising releases or property nor can
the railroad company buy services ad
vertising releases of property with
That a law regulating the size of
crews on trains within the state
which is not an obstruction to inter
state commerce but is rather enact
ed in aid of interstate commerce may
be passed by a state for the public
That the supreme court will review
the validity of an order of the In
terstate Commerce commission even
though the two year limitation on the
life of the order has expired
That a railway system may not es
cape regulation as an instrument of
interstate commerce because one of
its constituent parts is a wharfage
company and its dominating power ov
er the wharfage company rests in the
fact that it is a holding comapny
That the Interstate Commerce com
mission does not possess the power
to reduce a rate unjust and unreas
onable merely because the rate is
inequitable under some circumstanc
es as in cases where railroads induce
shippers to enter the field by offering
rates as low as to be unrenumerative
and later increases the rates
The court further held constitu
tional a state statute providing that
no contract of relief benefit or in
surance should be a bar to the right
of a railroad employe engaged in the
operation of a railroad to sue the
employer for damages resulting from
injuries received in the course of his
