In conclusion Mr. Thompson ssyi It U
resjiectf ully submitted :
P(ri,tTha1 in tlii action by the sta'.e 1o
prevent ttie defendant from exacting com
pensation in excess of tbe rales limited
bv statute, the existence of the
and the defendant s refusal to comply with
iis terms make a - prima facie case tn
favor f plaintiff, since the svatu-e is pre
sumed to be valid. ...
Second In this suit by the s.ate to pre
vent defendant from charging rates in ex
cess of those fixed by law. the testimony
that the operating expenses nf defendant,
under tbe statutory rates, would deprive
it of the right to proper earnings is Insuf
ficient to overturn the statute, where the
nature and necessity of important items of
expense are not disclosed
ThirdThe statute reducing express rate
cannot be set aside as confiscatory on
testimony which fails to show the eHect of
the reduoed rate on new business. Tbe
defendant having failed 10 make such snow
ing it becomes unnecesBary to examine lbs
testimony offered by the state.
Fourth A rate statute should never be
set aside without the fullest disclosure of
all material facts, and the statute reducing
exprees rstes should not be set aside as
confiscatory on testimony of defendant that
it would be compelled to do h-S business at
a loss under ttie nea rates, w here the tea
timoiiv i based on operations unoer the
old rate, and evidence of actual opera
tions under tiie new rates show a profit.
Fifth By tbe use of reasonable and Just
methods for apportioning operating ex
penses between state and interstate buai
neaa. the rates fixed by the legislature In
controversy are shown by actual trial lor
a:x months to be amply remunerative.
Bixth The penalities provided for In the
Sibley act are not so drastic as to render
the act unoonsatutional. and if the pen
alties were unconstitutional they would not
invalidate the remainder of the act. (Wil

ness. ft a pid Rise of SehravaWaau

Alleging that the olficers of the Eureka
Manufacturing company have grroaaly mis
managed the affairs of the romneny; that
they have drawn exorbitant salaries for
nominal services; that tuey hae alioaed
unjust Judgments to be taken againat the
company; that they have dissipated the as
sets of the company and allowed the busi
ness 10 run down until the organization is
now in poor financial condition. Charles H
Pwaliow, former president cf the compan.
ruts secured a restraining order agamst the
present officers to prevent them from pay- .
trig some creditors of ths compani' u pref
erence to otliera
Mr. S allow also asks the district court
to appoint s receiver for the company to
manage It affairs and pay off its liabilities
ax proper odr of preference. The bearing
on the restraining order will be held be
fore Judge A. J. Cornlhb next F.sTtiraa;
mortimx aft which time one e.f the most
important legal ronlesta of the present term
of court will be begun.
The eompany is capitalixed for 7t' ftp.
The total value of its property seen: 10 be
entirely uniertain and its liabilities ar
tifl 10 exceed tSftP eno. Connected w ith thi
ctmrxtrn are a numlier of the best knowr
business men of the city and its affau-f
seem to be m conaiderahle confusion. The
present rompany was formed for the pur
pose of manufacturing and selling pt
enied gram grader. It took over the Lin
coln Sash and Ioeir company, with lis tis-
I LkhlisiHid factory here, and the Question ut
1 the liability of the present con.pany for Uk
01 ins of tiie sash and door company is on
of confusing details of the case.
The plaintiff in this case waa preaiUcni
end general manager of the company fm
a t:me. Tie was also a stork holder of tfi
sash and door company and as such claim
, Hint lie is l.able for the indebtedness of
I that cuo. pal y. If tt is not jiaid by the 00m
