I/ocul , itc. , Kto
Yesterday morning the argument of ( ho
motion to dissolve the injunction
rifjalnat tlio cabin line was jcsumcil
before Judge Dtinily In tlio United
Stntns court. Tlio room was filled with
n crowd of spcctsitors who watched with
Interest the baltlo between the loyal
JndRo AN oolworth opened tlio argu
ment for the .street ctvr company.
Referring to the claim of the attorneys
for the cable road , that the original ex
clusive charter conferred in 1807 ( under
which the street ear company had boon
Incorporated ) had been amended by : m
not of 1877 , so as to allow other street car
companies to build in this city , Mr.
Woolworth re id an article of the state
constitution , passed In 1875 , which di
rectly prohibited the lejjishtti.ro from
nniendinjr the charter of any corporation ,
unless that corporation wore organized for
clmrltableroformatory or penal purposes.
"Inasmuch as wo are oignnizcd for none
of these purposes , " said Mr. Woolworth ,
"I tak'j It for grunted that the act of tlio
legislature of 1877 , on which my learned
friend who opened the argument on Wed
nesday , dwelt so long , was passed ille
gally. So that that portion of Ins argu-
is , I think , is ell'octuall.v disposed of. "
Mr. Woolworth then argued that if ho
could show that the cable company pro
posed to do that which wo nltl qualify tlio
franchises of the fetro et car company ,
hurt its business , and depreciate the
value of its property , then tno case came
within the federal jurisdiction. It is
enough to show that the building of a
cable line on Tenth and Farnam streets ,
where the street car company has lines ,
will work great injury to the latter cor
poration. "Not only on account of com
petition , which would result from the lay
ing of tracks by the cable company , " ho
said , ' 'but because this would result in un
Inconvenience to tlio nubile , who might
wnnt to reach our cars , and would have
to do so by crossing the trucks of the
cable company. "
"J don't think , " inturjomcd Mr. Cowin ,
"that them is any danger of passengers
crossing our track to reach your ears. "
"No,1" retorted Mr. Woolwortb. "I
don't think you'll ever get a chance to
build tlio road. I don't suppose you over
intended to do any inoro building than
was absolutely necessary to allow you to
got into our company. "
Mr. Woolworth quoted a decision of
Justice Miller , of the supreme bench of
the United States , to show Mint a corpor
ation could seek redress in the federal
courts for the injury of its business or tlio
depreciation of its property. So that the
street car company is entitled to protec
tion at the hands of this court from any
thing which would tend to destroy the
oxclusivcnoss of its charter or injure its
business. Whether that be a barricade ,
u row of buildings or a rival line , the
redress Is the * same. Authorities sup
porting this claim were read by Mr.
Taking the clause of the constitution
which provides that no state shall impair
the rights or destroy lie property of any
citi/on or corporation of citizens , Mr.
Woolworth invoked the jurisdiction of
the court in the protection of the prop
erty , the vnlno of which tlio defendants
were ready to destroy. That provision
of the constitution , ho said , was just as
buroly , just as directly , just as radically
assailed by the action of the defendants
ns could possibly on imagined ,
Mr. Cowin's argument that the street
railway company had only the right
under the charter to opcraio cars with
horses as the motive power , was in con
clusion considered by Mr. Woolwortli.
Ho stated that this was to bo interpreted
in tlio liberal sense ; that at thattimo horses
wore considered the only means of pro
pelling cars outside of steam power , and
that it was uot.tho mtontlonjof this clause
to forbid the street car company from
availing themselves , later on of any
cheaper and more powerful source , pro-
, vidcd they could do so. Ho WHS
elaborately arguing this point when
Judge Dundy interrupted him by saying :
I'lou needn't ' dwell any further on that
point. It requires only an ordinary
mind to pi-o that the construction you
point out is to bo applied to the clause in
question. I do not think that the inten
tion of the act was to prevent the street
car company from using any other power
than that of horses , wjiioh was the only
ono at that Unto thought of in connection
with street railways. Otherwise that
patient , long fluttering animal , the mule ,
might bo barred out. "
" 1 want to remark , your honor , " said
Mr. Cuwln , not noticing the last sally of
the judge , "that this point brought tip
by Mr. \ \ oolworth I wish to discuss ; but
1 do not feel like arguing it if your honor
is going to decide the p61nt before
Mr. Cowin was assured that his argu
ments would bo given equal considera
tion with those of Mr. Woolworth. The
latter announced tli.it ho hud finished his
speech , and a recess was taken until this
Mr. Cowin commenced the argument
in the afternoon , Ho dwelt at great
length upon his claim that the charter of
tlio Horse Hallway company , granted by
the legislature of 1807 , was ex
clusive in its rights only us
fur ns it referred to the operation of horse
railways , The charter implicitly pro
hibits the operation of a ri'ilway under
the charter granted by any steam power.
The act ofl8T7 , ho maintained , conHrmod
Uoth acts confina the ovclusiveness of the
company's charter in tjie operation of u
liorso railway , The horse railway com
pany claim that their exclusive right
embraces the right to run a btrcot rail
way tha power for which shall bo fur
nished by a central location. "Tho idea
of their right extending to cable rail-
wuys. " said ( jencrul Cowin , "Is ratho ;
nbeurd when wo reflect that the cable
rtxllwny was an unknown means of tran
sit when tlio Omaha Horse Hallway re
ceived their charter , " Ho alleged further
that tlioro was no foundation for Mr.
Woolworth's claim that the operation of
a cable railway on Tenth and Farnam
streets would result in damage to
Horse Hallway company's property ,
( ioflorul Cowiu said that this did not
nfTect ( he question ol charter at all , The
state did not give the llorso Hallway
company n guunmtoo of property. lnt $
the unl no company had no intention of
dttmtujing their property. Ho said the
cubic company hud already expended u
Vnst amount ot money , equal to half the
value of the Omaha liorso Hallway com
pany't ; property , mid wore anxious to go
on with the work ,
After the olosb of the arguments Judge
Diindy remarked that ho had returned to
tnaha from Lake Genovft , wu ( < ro ho was
resting , to hoar this case , M ho realized
Its importance to the city of Omaha ,
JIo lott homo two weeks
I3o , anxious for a rest , and
thought ho had 6overod tip his tracks.
Uofore ho had crossed the etato of Iowa
the stooping car conductor gave him a
telegram Raking him if hovould Wait In
Chicago Until an application could bo
madofor a writ of injunction in a certain
case. He Waited , and before ho could
get away this cnso was presented to him ,
Ho wild ho was in the Nebraska legisla-
tnro when the bill giving the Omaha
Her c Hailwav company their charter
was passed. Ho was surprised nt Its pe
culiarly exclusive character , and prophe
sied that trouble would bo caused from
it. Ho did not think ho ought to express
an opinion on the case , ns the question
involved was ono requiring con
siderable study. Ho would not
hold , ho said , that the cable
company should not go on with their
work and ho would tint dissolve the in
junction absolutely. Hodeeidcd that the
cnblo company should bo allowed to go
on with their work after giving a bond in
the proper sum to respond to any damage -
ago that may accrue to the Omaha Horse
Hallway company by the construction
and operation of a cable line if in the fu
ture it maybe found that the liorso rail
way company's charter is exclusive , and
that the cable company have no right to
construct lines on streets operated by
them. Ho said he would also consider n
motion for n rehearing of tlio case before
himself and Judge UreWcr.
General Cowin slated that the ruling
was satNfaetory to him , and that the
cable company would liloa bond as soon
as tlio amount was lixod. Air. Woolworth -
worth , on the part of the horse railway
asked time to liavo a conference with his
client and court adjourned until lOo'elook

An Open , llcektiifj , Stinking Garbage
A.n open garbage cart passed Council
man Manville and a 15iiu reporter yester
day morning. It smcllcd so foully as to
make even distant passers-by turn aside
in disgust. Saul tlio councilman :
"I think there is a clause in the ordinance
establishing those ward garbage wagons
compelling them to use a cover. " If that
is the case , the wagon in question is cer
tainly n violation , because it was entirely
open on the end and top. The reporter ,
two days ago , saw this same wagon
driven in front of a boarding house on
Farnam street , where tlio driver took his
shovel and emptied the contents of a
largo box of rocking refuse , ono shovel-
full at a time into the cart. The stench
was so gtcat that business people on the
opposite side of the street had to close
"There is an oversight in the ordi
nance. " again spoke Mr. Manvillo. "I
think it ought to specify that this rcfuso
ought to bo hauled away after nightfall. "
DK. JUlOROfilt'S INJUNCTION.
How It Affects the. Completion of the
Ithnd been the intention of the Belt
line to have its trams make a circle of
the city in time for the Omaha fair and
exposition , but It claims that this will
now bo impossible , because of the in
junction by Dr. Mercer , which
prevents il from completing
the only gap in its route at the intersec
tion of its road by Mercer avonuo. The
road is building a bridge at that point
and had driven nearly all the piles for the
sumo , when they wore enjoined until the
Itith of October. The bridge , the com
pany claims , is the width of the street
and would in no way interfere with the
roadway in question. The ISolt Line ,
therefore , will make only half way trips
to the fair grounds during thu show.

Iloxvttio Live Stock Cotmntsnlnticranro
Thwarted In their AVork.
Yesterday morning's passenger
train on the B. & M
brought in n gentleman from the
western part of the state who tells of a
remarkable case of interference on the
part of n man named Lewis Cluto , resid
ing ut Arupahoo , this state , and the live
storK commission. It has been reported
for some llmo that Cluto had glundorcd
horses in Ins possession. A short time
ago the commissioners visited the town ,
asked to see Chile's horses and met with
no kindly reception. They saw the ani
mals which were in the barn , however ,
and pronounced three of them af
fected with the glanders. They In
formed Cluto of their discovery , but ho
scouted il , whereupon the commission
commanded the horses to bo killed , and
further that they bo pcnnlUcd to exam
ine his horses in nn adjoining Hold. Tnis
was reluctantly assented to by Chile , and
resulted in a linding of eight
horses more which wore sim
ilarly nfTeoted. Clulo became boisterous
and abused the commissioners in a most
shameful manner , when it was finally
agreed that the horses should be cor
ralled and the commission would deMg-
nalo the affected horses. Cluto set the
horses tree , notwithstanding which , the
eleven hor&os previously mentioned were
again discovered. A constable was then
ordered to kill the horses , and the com
missioners loft for Beaver City , where
tho.v killed three other animals also with
glan Icrs. The constable later informed
the commissjon that Cluto had taken the
opinion of District Attorney Marian that
they could not be killed loyally , because
they were isolated in a field with Chile's
own stock , and refused to let the horses
bo killed. Again the commission went
to Arapalioe , and this time were told by
Cluto he was going to ask the opinion of
u surgeon connected with the state uni
versity. That opinion pronounced thir
teen of Chile's hews affected. Again
killed , and Clute explained that circum-
the commissioners wont to Arapahoe and
found that but three of the horses had been
stances had prevented the killing of the
others. But he promised to see that it
was done. Another report came to the
live stock men , and on another visit to
Arapahoe they found that the eialit
horses had been run oil'and could not bo
found. It is claimed that tlio commis
sion feel this has been done by Chile's
order , and propose toisift the matlor lo
Iho bottom. The indignation ot the people
ple Aottrapahoo at Clutc's conduct is in-

Mention was made in the Bic a few
days ago of the case of Mrs. Mary Hovel ,
who ran away with liar paramour , desert-
iiig her fonr children.Marshal Cummings -
mings wrote the father , who is in jail at
Denver , asking him to give the address
of an aunt in Michigan to whom the
children might bo sent. Yesterday he re
ceived a reply from Hovel , asking , that
thb children bo sent to him in cure
of the city of Denver. The children are
now at the poor farm. Ihoy declare that
they do not wisli to bo sent to their
father. The truant mother is said to be

thermore that the laml in question is his
own property , for which ho paid money ,
and which he has owned since 1870.

reached a position in her growth that
will soon decide whether she is to con
tinue to grow and prosper and rculizo
the fond hopes of so many of our citizens
in becoming a great commercial centre ,
or sutler the fnto of such lowe towns as
Burlington , Davenport and other Missis
sippi river towns which promised much
to their inhabitants but realized bo littlo.
Chicago has become a great metropolis
because all roads running west from
that-city have their eastern terminus at
Chicago. If wo wish to go ahead wo
must realize the critical situation wo
stand in with regard to the railroads
west and nothing but Omaha railroads
extending over the country
southwest aud northwest will save
us from coming to an curly
halt on the road to commercial suprem
acy for the tetriiory naturally tributary.
Our merchants to-da.y are in the throes
of a death struggle with the B. & M. for
the South Platte country and Iho Fre
mont , Elkhorn & Missouri Valley rail
road ( which is only another naftie for the
Chicago & Northwestern ) , for the North
Platto. The B. & M. is doing everything
to make rates to Lincoln so much against
Ouiaha'us ' to control a great share of the
tralh'e of that section , and the No rth-
weslern is doing the same for Fremont.
In other word j the rate lo Fremont is
such on open tarifl' that the Omaha
jobber competing for Fremont bus- ! ,
ness on fourth-class , poods ns against
Cliicago or Fremont is at a disadvantage
of 12 ccnts/and much greater on goo < ts
of higher classification. This rate is
simply prohibitory as far us Omaha job
bers .selling Fremont and many towns
west of that point is concerned.
Omaha capitalists had boiler look this
question straight in the face now and not
wait till it is too lute. Those railroads
named uoovn will not recede from their
present position , und there is no use
nursing some delusion to coax or drive
thorn into doing justice to Omaha. Their
capital and interests are mainly cast of
the Missouri , and they can see greater
roibons to draw trade away from Omnha
than to Omaha. As a member of the
Freignt bureau , I have some knowledge
of the disposition of the managers of
these roads. Wo have demanded that the
rule from noinls cr.st of Iho Missouri lo
points in Iho interior of Nebraska should
no made on the basis of the sum of the
two looms. To this dcmund they meet us
with plausible smiles , assure us by careful
out evasive language that our demand
is correct , just , clc. , etc. , "but just ut
this time" Inoro arofiomo obstacles in the
way of adjusting the rate. If wo will
keep quiet a little longer they will make
us happy. They do not satisfactorily ex
plain tlio cause for waiting , but leave us
with the idea that they are soon going to
pluco its right. Meanwhile they go on
extending and every move is made to
bind us hand and foot.
The talk of boycotling the road und
carrying our grievance into iho stale
legislature next winter may delay the in
evitable destruction to Omaha commerce
which these roads are working out , but
it will not stop or cure the evil. An
Omaha railroad northwest and another
southwest is the only sura remedy.
\Vhul say Omaha capitalists ? Which
horn of tlio dilemma will they tuko ?
