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. Cheekla gTractlea Bake.

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.

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.

Telegraphic repons that the In timate friends and mananera of Senator La Fcllette contemplated wlttdrawlng his name as a candidate for the presi dency on account of the breakdown in the senator's health, came as such a sur prise to the supnortem of the sensor here that they tlui not ore to dtacusj the question of who would be the most probable legatee In ease tlio report was true.

If either faction thinks It can push such a resolution through It will make the move, but If after feeling out the ground neither Is sure of Its ground the whole matter Is likely to go over without even a mention. A hurry call ha been sent out to Mem bers of the committee whom each faction thinks It can depend on to be sure and attend, while no one appears anxious to have the uncertain quantities show up at th meeting. The state campaign I so bsdly mixed that tho friends of none of the candidates deem It sdvlsable to make a move. MRS. HARRY A. WILLIAMS. FORM BRLY MISS MARTllii.VA HARRISON.
