Before Colonel Baker'a advent on the
county board the city council and the su
pervlaora aucceeded In effecting a com
promise in the matter by which part of the
fund collected within the city waa turned
over to the committee on atreeta and al
leya and the other part expended by the
aupervlaora wherever It desired. Colonel
Baker, however, declined to enter Into any
auch arrangement and the result haa been
a conatant controveray between the board
and the city council. The atate law says
that the portion of the county. road fund
ralaed from the levy within the city llmlta
hall be expended under the "direction"
of the city council. Colonel Baker, how
ever, contenda that thla only glvea to the
city council the right to object to any
alienation of the fund to other parte of
tha county, but doea not give It the right
to dictate a to what atreets or In what
way . thai money shall be expended.
' The queatlon haa once before been taken
Into the courts, with the result that the
court held that the city council had the
right to designate on what atreeta In the
city llmlta thla portion of the county road
ahould be expended and unless - Colonel
Baker recedea from the position whlch.be
asserted at the meeting of the board yes

litigation may be looked for.

for twenty-five years, this being the term
asked for by all three companies in their

who have examined the ordinance are of
the opinion that In its present wording It
can be construed to provide for a general
telephone system with an exchange Instead
of merely a central atatlon. Aa the meas

terminal stations," whereas It la claimed
that It ahould provide only for "terminal

.DES MOINES. April . (Special.) The
supreme court today in two criminal cases
indicated that the Justices have been wres
tling with the problem of presumptive
guilt where stolen goods are found In pos
session of an accused person .soon after a
larceny haa been committed. It ia the same
question as that on which the attorney gen
eral of the atate asked and secured a le
hearing, at the last term, which rehearing
haa not yet been held. In the case against
John Williams, who was convicted In Dea
Molnea, there waa reversal because the In
structions of Judge McHenry on the trial
of tha case did not atate whether the break
ing and entering waa for the purpose of
committing a public offense, and also it
was not made clear that "only when the
breaking and entering and the larceny are
committed at the aame time and by the
aame person, in other words, that the goods
are stolen by means of the breaking and
entering, that any effect ia to be given the
recent possession ot stolen goods." In the
caae ot George Swift, who waa convicted of
breaking and entering a beer warehouse at
Avoca, the aame subject waa considered
more In detail. "It is sufficient to ,say."
atatea the aupreme court, "that the court
Is unequivocally committed to the position
that when It appeara that certain gooda
have been atolen from a building .by break
ing and entering the proof of the aubse
quent possession, without reasonable ex
planation that the gooda were obtained oth
erwise than In the commission of, the crime
of breaking and entering, will support a
conviction for the latter crime. In some of
the cases which we have heretofore con
sidered objection haa been taken, to the use
la such connection of language Indicating
that proof of the aubsequent possession
gives rise to the presumption ot guilt which
it is for the defendant to overcome; ,but
such objection Is not tenable to the Instruc
tions given In this caae, by which the Jury
were told that the 'fact of auch possession,
It unexplained, is sufficient to warrant tho
conclusion that the person having auch pos
sesion is the person who broke and entered
the building,' unless the evidence showing
such possession leaves a reasonable doubt
whether the defendant may, not have come
Into possession ot the gooda otherwise than
by breaking and entering." The Williams
case waa reversed and the Swift cbbo af
firmed. Judge, Bishop wrote a decision that reads
like a chapter from a novel ia the case of
Anjulla Williams against Peter Fabn, from
Shelby county, a breach of promise case
where the plaintiff got a Judgment for
$1,600. Wllllama,waa 74 years old, widower
and wealthy, lived at Earllng; Anjulla waa
45 and deaf and dumb. Williams admitted
the love-making, the propoaal and the ef
fort to get married. In fact ho got a, license
and went to a Catholic priest to have tha
ceremony perforated The clergyman re
fused; nay, more, he called Peter an old
fool, and Anjulla something worse, and the
two went away disappointed. Then Peter's
friends talked and aald the woman Of bis
choice waa not only deaf and dumb, but
that she waa very bad and not suited to, be
bis wife. He backed out and never tried to
get married again. In defense he pleaded
that his refusal waa due to ,the discovery
that Anjulla had not lived aa she should
and further that he had aettled with her.
But these questions were submitted to tho
Jury and the court decides that Peter bad
known what he was doing la tha first rlace
and had no right to make such a pica.

Hedrlck waa appointed receiver for the

Report oa Escape ot Inebriates.
The official report of Superintendent
Crumpacker of the atate hospital at Inde
pendence on the escape of sixteen Inebri
ates haa been received by tha atate
board. He atatea that the squad of in
ebriates was in charge of two attendants,
one of them being a young man who baa
only been with the Institution a short
time. When they became rebellious one
turned back with the men who did' not
want to run away and the other followel
the fleeing Inebriates. Two farmers were
called In to assist and they had revolvers.
Only when attacked by the Inebriates did
they do any shooting at them, and aa the
result of this two of the Inebriates were
wounded slightly. Members ot the state
board point out that the Incident meana
that the atate must make nome bet er pro
vision for caring for the Inebriates.

Laws of New Jersey, 18S9, psge 473. This
language Is not merely perfunctory; It
means obviously thut whatever powers the
incorporations saw fit to assume, they must
hold for the accomplishment of lawful ob
jects. The words In question operate,
therefore, as a limitation upon all the pow
ers enumerated In the articles of associa
tion which are filed by the promoters of
the securities company, so that, however
extensive and comprehensive these powers
may seem to be. the atate of New Jersey
has said, you shall not exercise them so as
to set at defiance a"V statute lawfully
enacted by the congress of the United
States, or any statute lawfully enacted by
any atate wherein you aee fit to exercise
Tha contention that whatever restraint
upon Interstate commerce there may be Is
Indirect and remote, and therefore not to
ba forbidden by congress, la not found to
be well austalned.
The contention that If tho existing com
bination la In violation of ta anti-trust
act then that aot unduly restrlcta the
rights of the Individual to make contracts
and la Invalid, ia declared to be entitled
to little consideration.
Provision of the Constttatlon.
The court says:
The provision of the constitution doea not,
as we believe, exclude congress from legis
lating with regard to contracts of the above
nature, while in (he exercise of Its consti
tutional right to regulate commerce among
the states. On the contrary, wo think the
provlekon regarding the liberty of the citi
zens Is to some extent limited by the com
merce clauce of the constitution, and that
the power ot congress to regulate Inter
state commerce comprises the right to en
act a law prohibiting the citizen from en
tering Into those private Contracts which
directly and substantially, snd not mi rely
Indirectly, remotely, incidentally and col
laterally regulate to a greater or leaa de
gree the commerce among the rtates.
The further contention that the antl-trut
law was not. Intended for such combina
tions, and that these combtnatlona had been
consummated before the bill waa filed, and
was in reality In aid of commerce and not
to restrain It, are held to be clearly un
tenable as to the first point, and that the
second point ta a novel, not to say absurd,
interpretation of the anti-trust act, and as
to the last contention, it Is to be possible,
but not a matter for decision of the court.

NEW YORK, April 9. One of the, leading
counsel In tho. Northern Securities caae
As yet this Is an undigested opinion, but
from the hasty- glance I have given it I
call your attention to the closing phrase of
the Judge's order, which practically nulli
fies the whole effect of the decision. It
provides that the Northern Securities com
pany may transfer and aaaign the stick
of the Northern Pacific and Great N rth
ern roads, now held by it, to such person
or persons rs are now the ho'ders snd
owners of Its stock originally issued In ex
change for the stock of and companies.
Thla right of transfer Is vital and it reemi
to me renders negatory .he main conclu
sion of the court. However, It Is too early
to say much.
J. P. Morgan said:
Until I fee tha full text of the decision I
shall not care to express an opinion on It.
This much Is certain, however, It will not
rest where It Is.
The question of the right of two or mire
railroads to be operated by a holding com
pany will be taken to the United States au
preme court. Instead of looking upon the
decision of the court today as a blow to
railroad enterprise I should say that the
revtree Is the case.
Capital all over the country Is anxious to
know its rights in the matter of railroad
construction and operation. Railroad men
want to know where they stand.
The decision today Is Just one step closer
to a decision from the United Bta'.es eu-
fireme court, which shall be final, for even

These facts are plain. Both railroads hell

When railroad men kno- exactlv how
the law Is to be Interpreted they will prob
ably find good ways to a?e that their prop
erties ara operated economically and profitably.
