Yesterday afternoon the State Board ot 1

States circuit court in the cases brought by
the Chicago & Northwestern , the Chicago ,
St. Paul , Mtiino.iiolls | & Omaha , nnd the
I'Vomotit , Klkhorn it Missouri Valley Hall
way companies to restrain the board from
carrying out the provisions of theN jvfborry
maximum freight law passed at the last
session of the Nebraska legislature. This
answer , In the main , Is ldontlc.il with that
Jlled by the Chicago , Burlington fc ( Julncy
Kallroad company hist Saturday ,
This latter answer Is a lengthy document ,
covering fifty typewritten pages , besides a
nombor of pages of exhibits , showing the
freight rates of this state as compared with
these In force In the other states of the
union ; the profits which the roads have boon
making during the past years and the past
MM present market value of the common

l'linrirM ol Uunnpirncr ,
In answering the petition of tlio plaintiff *
the defendants , members of the sin to board ,
allege that soon after the passage of the
Ismvbcrry bill all of the plaintiffs conspired
together to defeat the carrying out of the
provisions of the act and to avoid the penal
ties and forfeitures. With rofcronco to the
case of the Elkhorn void , the defendant al
leges that this paillcular road Is a domestic
corporation , operating its own lines , most of
which are wholly within the state of Ne
Touching upoirtho subject of the Chicago ,
St. IV.ul , Minneapolis & Omaha road , the
defendant alleges that that i-ompany is not
orgaimcd under tho-laws of any other state
outside of the state of Nobraska. and that
the entire road can bo reproduced and
equipped nt the rate of § 15,000 mlloj that if
the payment of cash dividends was conllnod
to stock actually represented by cash invest
ment , thu net earnings would bo from ' _ 0 to
! Ki per cent per annum. However , the de
fendant alleges , that such is not the i-aso ,
but that the stock is watered for the pur
pose of absorbing all dividends and showing
that the debt is largely in excess of the cost
and the value of the road.
Crltlclm-s thu Klklinrn.
Referring to the Klkhorn road , the do-
fomiant alleges that at the time ot the in
corporation of thu company thu capital stock
was limited to $1,000,000 , but thatsinco thuti
it has been increased to moro than
SHO.IITO.OOO , ami that $20.000JOO ( of the
gross amount lias been distrlbutod
about the country In the , shape
of bonuses. Owing to this fact the de
fendant alleges that the road has 116 right to
claim that the running expenses of the road
are in excess of the bondcu indebtedness.
Taking up the entire lines of thu North
western system , the defendant avers that
one-half of the tonnage transported in this
state consists of grain hauled cast , nnd that
the rate should not bo at the high
est liguru. The defendant denies that
theao roads are carrying p.issejigers
at less than actual cost ami that the freight
and passenger r.ttes provided for by the
terms of the Newberry bill are lower than
these of other states , but on the contrary
avers that they are much higher than these
in force In some of the western states , The
defendant also denies that on August lnlSOl ,
the state board determined that the , froKht )
rates then m foreo wcro Just and'equitable.
_ butit does aver that slnco thUt tlnta'tho
"value of farm products , machinery , manu
factured goods rtiid labor have buttf reduced ,
though notwithstanding all of this thu roads
have raUcd their rates fully 4 > polMxmi per
100 pounds. > n nil * , '
Million a Now CharRO.
'A now charge is made in which the de
fendant alleges that the plaintiffs have been
mingling local and interstate freight in the
same cars .simply for the purpose of taking
aw.iy the right of thu state to establish und
maintain a maximum freight rate for local
business. This allegation the defendant ,
thu state board , n'leges that it is ready and
prepared to prow , when the case is reached
In the exhibits which are a part and
parcel of the answer the defendant com
pares tht- Iowa rate with that provided lor
under the terms uf the Nowborry bill , show
ing that it is lower in almost orer.v Instance ,
and In another table shows the dividends
which the three companies have declared
each year slnco their organization.
