f0 "ITY. April 27. Judge John F.

shippers: Chlcag. Chicago, Mil

Pacific, Chlcsgo, Rock U.and ft Pacific,
Wabash and Chicago Oreat Western.
The case preaented the same question In
volved In similar canes passed upon by
Judge Orosscup at Chicago on Friday last.
As the demurrers In these casea were heard
by Judge Grosscup snd Judge Phillips. Bit
ting together, the brief opinion given by
Judge Oiosscup last Friday was the result
of their conference and agreement.
The decision delivered by Judge Phillips
today, which was oral, maintains that the
discriminations and rebataa made and al
lowed by the railroad companies were
violative of the Interstate commerce act
and that they tended to create a monopoly
In the shipment of grain and products in
favor of the Individual shipper, to the
practical exclusion of all other dealers and
like shippers, and that the question pre
sented was whetner or not a bill In equity,
at the Instance of the attorney general of
the United States, on request of the Inter
state Commerce commission, mould lie to
enjoin the defendants from further rebates
and discriminations.
The inclination of the mind of the court
was that the acta done were not only vio
lative of the Interstate commerce statute,
but also the anti-trust statute; snd that
the government. In the capacity of a parent,
representing all the people conoerned In
the shipment of such products, and for tho
public welfare, was entitled to appeal to
Its own courts to enjoin such violations
of the law; that the bill known aa tho
Elklna bill, uuder the decision of the au
preme court of the United Statea in MIs

confers jurisdiction upon the federal courts
In equity both aa to pending and future
casea; that there can be no question of
the right of the court to grant a tem
porary Injunction in the casea pending,
which will be done aa on motions now en
tered, with leave to the defendants, If they
desire, to take Issue by answer aa to the
truth of the allegations of the bill.

the president Theodore Roosevelt. The
chief magistrate tipped hla tall hat, bowed
and smiled In evident sincerity of appre

Twenty-four membera of tbe South

chorus of cheering. The president of the

seven different potnts, speaking to thou
sands upon thousands ot Nebraska's men,

So far aa temperature was concerned the

until late In the afternoon Its comfort waa
marred by high winds and heavy dust, fol
lowed by showers In Lincoln, Wahoo ani
Fremont, to be capped with most favorable
weather conditions upon hit arrival In
The president was In the best of spirits
from beginning to end ot the day'a ride,
exhibiting an exuberant Invigoratton, re
sulting from the refreshing recreation be
had had In hU outing In the Yellowstone
park. Hla face shows signs of exposure
to tbe direct rays of tbe aun In tha rarl
fled atmosphere of tbe higher reglona, but
in physique and weight, thoae who know
him aay, he never looked better. In every
look, word and action he exhibited unmeas
ured satisfaction with the magnificent wel
come accorded him by the people of Ne
braska. A welcome which showa that he
occupies a place' closer 'o 'he hearts of
the people tha.i any other president who

what he aaw aa .the train lore him over tbe
fertile prairies and promlstng Delis of the
richest agricultural section ot the middle
west. The rows of veterans of the civil
war. In which they had enrolled themaelves
under the flag for tbe union, called forth a
tribute to tbe patriotism that bad pre
vented disunion. The array cf Spanish
American volunteers reminded him of tbe
tact that In tbe "little" war which followed
Nebraska was among the first to offer Its
aona to uphold the prestige of the nation
In the far east. The banks of school chil
dren Inspired htm to new sermons on the
superior value of the cltlxen who con
tributes to the expansion of the country'
population. Hla participation In tbe ground
breaking for two new publlu libraries do
nated by Andrew Carnegie at Orand Island
and Hastings respectively called forth rec
ognition of tbe Influence of the library,
achool and church In the upbuilding of the
moral character of Ihe people, which, In the
president's opinion, counts for more than
material prosperity. And, finally, the gen
eral welcome of the people suggested to him
various lines of good cl.lzenahip the neces
sity of tbe Individual co-operation of all
the people to produce the best results from
the operation ot good lawa and honeat

Mains of Nebraska's Greatness.
The conditions of the farm and field
templed him to congratulation of the farm
era of Nebraska on the advantages tha.
have accrued from the diversification of
thelreropa and especially from the culti

and wheat. The transformation of the

the consummation ot Irrigation projects now

debt owing to Nebraska's senatora and rep
resentatives in the United States senate
and house of representatives In tbe enact
ment of the Irrigation measure acknowl
edged. The frequent groups of treea juat
budding Into leaf and blossom called forth
several tributes to tbe enduring monutnenta
of Arbor day, commemorating the llfework
of the late J. Sterling Morton. Inter
spersed with the speeches was much con
versational repartee between the president
and bla auditors who occasionally corrected
htm or amplified bis statements and fre
quently showed their approval by crlee of
"Right you are," "That's a fact," and
"Wo'U remember it."
Reception Alona; the Hoato.
The moat striking, of course, waa that

far behind and the president, in quitting
the state capital look occasion to call out
the heads of the committee In charge, and
the officers of the National guard and Uni
versity batalllon to tender them hla per

ments prepared for his romlng.
In transportation facilities the president
and hla party were particularly fortunate.
