WABIHNQTON , Aug. 19. The session of th
house today was not marked by nny nnl

Mr. MoCroury of Kentucky , a member o
the , recent monetary conference , and Mt
Catchlngs of Mississippi , of the committe
on rules , both took the lloor In support of th
unconditional repeal of the Sherman pui
chasing act.
Mr. Livingston of Georgia made ono o
his characteristic speeches in support of fre
coinage and against unconditional repeal an
justified his past populist record as a ' 'calan
ity howler" by asserting that every predli
tiou of the farmers alliance of three yeai
ago had been realized and that the banket
and brokers of Wall street were the prlnc
pal calamity howlers.
Mr. McCroary of Kentucky oponc
the silver debate. Speaking of the repeal c
the silver purchasing clause , ho declared li
would not hold that act as a hostage to fre
coinage. Free coinage should stand on II
own merits ; the only path which should lea
to free coinage of silver was an intornatiom
agreement , and the only way to reach thi

WASHISOTON , D. C. , Aug. 19. "Wo got

Robeloy D. Evans , naval secretary of Hit
light house board today , concerning the re

Captlan Evans spent several years In tlu

poachers nnd Is as familiar with the byway :
of that sou as an ordinary husbandman I ;

WASHINGTON , AUK. 19. The Star this eve

BBKUN , Aug. 10. Count Posadovsky Wes
ncr , the successor of Baron von Mnltzahn a
secretary of the Imperial treasury , will assume
sumo the duties of the ofllco on September 1
On the same day Baron von Maltzahn wll
give a farewell banquet to the ofllcialsof Ih
treasuries of the government department.
With the retirement of Baron von Mali
zalin from the head of the treasury it su )
posed to vanish whatever clement of ol
struction the policy of Dr. Mtqucl , Prussia
minister of finance , could meet in the ofllch
circle. It may bo that Baron Maltzihn I
obturo , but ho has been a highly honorabl
minister. Ho would willingly have place
himself en rapport with Dr. Mlquol , but tn
latter , having n profoundly dtfUcult task hi
fore him In arranging the now taxatio
schemes , required another man. The no' '
secretary of the treasury will inaugurate li
career by presiding over a scries of confoi
oiices to bo held by delegates of the fcdc
atod states on the new taxation proposition
Acrootl on the I'lan.
According to the scmi-ofllcltil press , all tl
federal states have now agreed that the ta
nn Bourse transactions shall be doubled an
a graduated tax bo Imposed on wines and t
baccos. The proposal to place a tax on n <
vertlsoments , which never met with gener ,
support , has been entirely withdrawn froi
consideration. The government became coi
vluced that the placing of a tax on ndve
tisements would aduorscly affect the bus
ness interests of the country and , const
qucntly' it has abandoned this pronosi
method of raising money.
The Vossisch Xcltung says that the no
expenditures Incurred , or to bo inuurrc- -
through the adoption of the army bill nece
sitates the raising of only 1,000,000 marlcs I
now imports , but it is certain that D
Miqucl will find a majority in the. Heichsti
for whatever measures ho may propose , pn
vided tno new taxation be so distributed :
to wel li little on the paopio who can lea :
bear further burdens. What was expcoti
of Dr. Miquel was that ho would effect tl
fiscal system of the empire , rather than
clover manipulation of tho. , system and ,
the end of securing further taxation.
Opposed by thu Public 1'rusn.
Outside of the oftlcial papers , who
course may bo depended upon to argue
favor of any project the government mi
broach , the lintnclal plans decided upon ,
fur as they have been revealed , excite t
keenest hostile criticism. Count Posadovsl
Wcsmer's appointment to the imperial st

close relation to the Gorman agrarian c

anj way to bring about a reversal of t

lion of a commercial treaty. The tariff v >
remains in statu quo.
Concurrent ndviccn from every commerc
center show that Russia Is feeling the piii
of war severely. Good rye , which costs
Icopccks per peed to produce , is selling
the same price. The cost of product !
threatens to shortly exceed the marl

The State Hoard of Transportation filed
Us answer In tlio court yesterday
nfturnouu In the cases brought by the Clil-
eiiijo. Burlington & Qulney Railroad com
pany against tlio board to restrain It from
carrying out the provisions of the maximum
rate law , mid by the same company's stock
holders to restrain the ollleers ami dirotors
of that company from taking nny stops
toward the s > amo end. The answers In the
two eases arc in the main Identical , ns the
object sought to bo accomplished In caoh i
tlio same , the defeat of tho'law on ths
ground of unconstltutlonalUy.
'Iho ' answers are long documents , covering
thirty-four typewritten pages , besides six
pages of exhibits. The defendant member *
of the state board admit that they are mem
bers of the board us charged , but deny that
they have any personal or pecuniary inlorest
In the result of the suit. They assert that
they are the ofllccrs and agents of the state
of Nebraska , which is the real parly In In
terest , and that the Milts should hare been
brought against the stato. They say thnt
the state docs in no way consent to to the
bringing of the action , and docs not lit any
way submit to the jurisdiction oC the court
to determine the mutters in dlfforcnca
C'nii lo Sottldl In Ntiitu Court * .
It Is sot forth that under the XI amend *
111 cut to the constitution of the United
States the courts of the United States nro
wholly without Jurisdiction to tv.v , hear and
determine the several matters in dlffercnca
set fortlv in the bill of complaint , and that
under the constitutions of tlio United State *
and the state of Nebraska and the laws of
the latter state , the complainants have a
full and adequate remedy at law for all mat
ters alleged and sot forth.
It is asserted that the defendant is
a domestic corporation of this slate ,
and became such by reason of its consolU
'datlon with the Durlington & Missouri
Ulver Railroad company In 18SO ; and by
reason of such cQnsolidntlon it.assumcd > nll
the liabilities , duties , responsibilities anil'
burdens of the- said , J3. & .M.-Railroad com
pany , and freely , voluntarily'and'elf lls own
accord submitted Itself to the constitution
and laws of the state of Nebraska , acceptIng - '
Ing the privilege- doing business in this
state under and subject to those provisions.
Ever slnco the 1st day of January , 1880 , It
became and now is a body corporate pursu-
nnt to and in iiecord.ineo with the laws ot
this state , and subject to all limitations an&
liabilities Imposed npon domestic corpora
tions , and that it is not a corporation organ
ized and existing under the laws of the
state of Illinois , nor of any other foreign
btato , but it over since has been and still is.
amenable to the constitution and laws of thu
state of Nebraska.
( irowth of thu Uurlliicron System ,
Then follows the history of the formation
of Uio complainant company ; the chartering
in 18111 by the stale of Illinois of the Au.
rora Brunch Railroad company , which wo *
reorganized in 18.VJ under the name of thu
Chicago & Aurora Railroad company , and
that in 1855 took the name of the Chicago ,
Burlington & Qutncy Railroad company. It
thereafter obtained by purchase , consolida
tion or otherwise , the Central Military Tract
railroad , the Northern Cross railroad and
the Poorla & Oquawka railroad , completing
its line from Chicago to Qulney and Burling
ton. Then follows the story of the charter
ing of thu I } . & M , by the Iowa legislature In
1854 , and the construction of sovonty.flv *
miles of road westward from Durlington , the
stoppage of work for ilvo years , its re
sumption by the complainant , and comple
tion at a point duo cast of PlaUsmouth In
1870 , the II. & M. having ever since continued
a part of the Chicago , Burlington & Qulney
system. Then came the incorporation of
the IJ. & M. In Nebraska In 1889 ,
and the building of the road from
PlatUmoulh to a Junction with the Union
I'.ii'lflo nt ICeurnoy , There were also incor
porated In this state thu Omaha & South
western railroad , the Nobrnslca railroad , thu
Lincoln & Northwestern r.illro id and the
Atuhlson & Nclirasini railroad which had
their respective termini InsMo the limits of
the state of Nebraska and had been con
structed and worn operated within the
limits of the state of Nebraska , but that on
or before the 1st day of Junmry , 18SO , tha
I ) . & M. in Nebraska had bccoino the lossno
of these roads and so operated them , and
they became n part of the Chicago , Durling
ton & Qulney railroad system by virtue of
its consolidation with the II. & M , In Ne
braska. Hy that consolidation , which took
place under the laws of this state , the Chicago
cage , liurlington & Qulney bccuraa
subject to thu same rostrlotloris
and liabilities ns were ami nra
Imposed by the laws of the state upon other
railroad comimnlos. and becumo possessed of
such powers , franchises and Immunities , and
liabhi to such especial restrictions und
liabilities as the said respective corporation !
were within this state possessed of and sub
ject to , under nny laws of tho.stito of Ne
braska peculiarly applicable to thorn or
either of them at the tlmo of such consoli
dation , as is provided by section 114 , chapter
xvl , of the laws of Nebraska ,

The defendant company has ever slnco
pretended and claimed that It was and is a
domestic corporation of tha state of Ne

chapter II of the constitution of the state ,
which provide * that "no railroad corporation
