IN A TRAFFIC CASE
INTERSTATE COMMERCE COMMIS
SION MAKES RULING.
OCEAN IS A FREE HI6HWAT
Traffic Over it Net Subject to Same
Restriction as Over Railroads,
Which Are Chartered.
Washingtcn-rA decision was pro
mulgated by the interstate commerce
commission in what probably is the'
most important case which the com
mission for a long time has been
called upoa to determine. It is that
of the Cosmopolitan Shipping com
pany, a Philadelphia organization
chartered under the laws of New Jer
sey, against the Hambur-gAmerican
Packet company, the North German
Lloyd Steamship company, the Wilson
(Hull) lines and the Scandinavian
American lines.
The complainant's petition was filed
with the commission nearly a year
ago. Some time subsequently the de
fendants filed a demurrer, attacking
the Jurisdiction of the Interstate com
merce commission. Oral arguments
on the demurrer were heard by the
commission. Ward W. Pierson appear
ing for the Cosmopolitan company and
former Senator John C. Spooner,
Judge William G. Choate and Harring
ton Putnam for the defendants. The
oral arguments were foliewed by ex
tensive briefs, which the commission
has had under consideration for sev
eral weeks.
The opinion in the case, which is
voluminous, was prepared by. Com
missioner Franklin Lane. It is an
exhaustive discussion of the law bear
ing upon the case and a lucid state
ment of the conclusions of the com
mission. The decision is peculiarly impor
tant not because it affects large in
terests which-hitherto have not been
brought before a Judicial tribunal of
this country, but because it affects
materially the powers of the inter
state commerce commission. In brief
and in effect, the commission decides
against Itself. It holds that it has
no authority over oceanic transporta
tion and thus determines the case ad
versely to the contention of the com
plainant. To this claim defendants demurred,
on the ground first that the commis
sion has no jurisdiction of the subject
matter and no power to proceed
against the defendants, and second
that the complaint sets forth no mat
ter which is cognizable by the com
mission or which it has been given
authority to remedy.
The commission ' sustains the de
murrer and directs in an order that
the complaint be dismissed.
SENATOR W. J. BRYAN IS DEAD.
Seventh Member of Senate to Die
Since Last March.
Wa ling ton. United States Sena
tor William James Bryan, of Florida

that time was spent in his fight
against disease. Several times dur
ing Mr. Bryan's illness his friends
despaired of his recovery, but as late
as Saturday night the report was giv
en out that his condition had taken
a turn for the better. His death Sun
day, therefore, came as a surprise
and a distinct shock.

NESRASKA IN SUPREME COURT.
Attorney General Thompson Files
Brief Against Judges.
' Washington dispatch: Attorney
General W. T. Thompson of Nebraska
will file with the clerk of the su
preme court a supplemental and reply,
brief in the original action for man
damus brought by the state of Ne
braska against the two federal judges
of Nebraska, W. H. Munger and T.
C. Munger.
This reply brief of the Nebraska
attorney contains the latest decision
of the Nebraska supreme court which
held that a state may be a party to
a suit to prevent wrong-doing, al
though it has no pecuniary -interest
in the outcome of the suit As this
is the point at issue in the mandamus
case, Air. Thompson wants the su
preme court of the United States to
read this decision carefully before
overruling the application for man
damus. The latest decision of the Nebras
ka supreme court on this question
holds squarely that the state is a
proper party to a suit brought to se
cure the eneforcement of a public
right or the restraint of a public
wrong.
