W. A. Prince of Graui Island was In
the dty for a short time today enroute
to Washington, where he will appear
before the public Isnds committee of the
house tn (behalt of settlers along the
line of the Union Pacific regarding the
claim of the company to a strip 4ut feet
wide as rtght-et-way. The brief pre
pared In behalf of the settlers sets out
that the 400-foot grant was contained In
the act of 1863 and that nothing was dons
by the company under this act., while
the road waa built under the act of KM.
which mentioned 200 feet Instead of 400
as the right-of-way. The particular bill
which Mr. Prince goes to Washington
to advocate Is one pending before ths
committee which Is identical In terms
with a measure passed In the case of the
Northern Pacific where exactly the asms
conditions originally obtained. '
The brief sets up that the settlers have
held adverse possession to all but m
feet claimed as right-of-way for forty
rears, while the railroad company con
tends this rule of adverse possession
does not hold as the grant for right-of-way
and for no other purpose and Is
therefore Inalienable. The bill which Is
pending validates all such transfers, and
quiets title In the present owners of the
land. The total amount Involved In the
claims of the railroad company Is esti
mated at SUO.OOO.OOO. Including not only
farm land, but lota and business prop
erty In towns along the entire line of
the Union Pacific.

Oraad lalaad Fight.
A legal battle over the St. Joseph A
Grand Island railroad was commenced In
the . federal court this morning before
Judges W. H. and T. C. Munger. The
minority stockholder of the road are
asking an injunction to restrain the
Inlon Pacific, which owns a majority of
the stock, from expending the funds of
ths Orand Island company for Improve
ments which It Is alleged are for the
benefit o ft he Union Pacific and not of
the Grand Island company. It la alleged
the portion of the Grand Island trackage
between Uuland. Kan., and Hastings,
Neb., Is being put In much better condi
tion than the traffic of the line Itself
warrants and that plan are being made
to double track that portion, which, It la
charged, Is unnecessary for the com
pany's business. It Is also alleged that tt
la contemplated to extend the line from,
Hastings, to Kearney. Ken., and that
such extension is for the sole benefit of
the Union Pacific, which uses the track
age from Upland to Hastings and will use
the line from Hastings to Kearney solely
as a part of Its own line to connect the
Kansas Pacific and Union Pacific main
lines. It Is charged that a surplus of
(41,400,000 In the Grand Island treasury
In IMS has been expended tn this man
ner and other portions of ths road and
Its rolling stock have been neglected.
The complainants further allege that
the control of the road by th Union Pa
cific la contrary -to the Sherman anti
trust law and of the anti-trust laws of
both Nebraska and Kan ass.
