court. The r-aae Inatltnted In IDIl has
progressed slowly owing to the diffi
culty In securing the depositions and the
numerous motions which have been ar
gued In the case. In which the gas com
pany seeks to obtain a erettial In
junction restraining the city from en
forcing the dollar gee ordinance, and
further asking that the dollar gaa ordi
nance be declared null and void.

W. T. Ilerdmsn opened the argument
for the gas lompany, outlining the Is
sues of the se. The action of the gas
company was originally based on th
talldlty of Its franchise contract with
the city, executed In 195. and upon the
furtlier ground that the rates specified
In the dollar gas ordinance were uurea
eonable and confiscatory. The second
ground, that the dollar rate Is confisca
tory, has bten dismissed. It being -the

the aouth while out on a trip over some
of the rompany line. While Mr. Mark
ham doe not pretend to speak for Pres
ident Bush or the executive committee
of the road, he Is of the opinion that no
difficulty will be experienced In raising
the $10,0ii0,0Oii by June 1 and which la re
quired to be paid over lo New York to
take rare of notes that fall due on thct
The l.V.0"0 is not money that we
borrowed by the Missouri Pacific, but
Inatead, i an obligstlon of the Western
Pacific. Owing to the Immense cost of
construction and the numerous costly
washouts that followed, the Western wss
compelled to hate that Ki,VA,0). so It
gave short time notes, payment of which
waa guaranteed by the Ienver Rio
Grande, another rtould property. The
Mlsaotirl Pacific got Into the deal by en
dorsing the not and la now In position
where It may have to pay them unless
an extension Is granted, hkh now seema
to b Improbable, aa aome of the New
Tork bsnkera holding the paper have re
fused to g e more tl,r,e.
Mr. llarkham ert that at this see-
an of th year crop prospects threogn
the whole of Missouri Pcf!c territory
were never so good as now. In Kansas
he saya they are falsing of a yield of
lW.00.Oor to WtWi bushels of wheat,
and If either ettlmate ahould be reached
It would be a bumper crop.
