WASHINGTON, Dec. 29. (Special Tel
egram.) N. H. Loomis, general solicitor
of the Union Pacific, appeared today lie
fore the subcommittee of the Jurillary
ommlttee of the senate, omposed of
O'Oorman of Nw Tork, Cummins of
Iowa, and Brandegne of Cbnnetlcut, in
relation to the so-called Nnrrls bill, which
forfeits a large portion of the right-of-way
of hte Union Pacific to settlers.
Senator Norris waa also presnt at the
hearing as was T. J. Nolan and Captain
Wanser of Omaha.
Senator Norris stated that h edld not
desire to be heard on the bill at presnt,
but suggested that partlea In Interest
wished to be heard which brought forth
a statement from Senator O'Oorman that
they might file briefs with the right to
be heard orally If they ao desired.
Present Union Pacific Case,
Mr. Loomis presented the case for the
Union Paciflo Railway company and
argued that congress had no power to
take from the company the right-of-way
which It had granted as 'a condition of
building and operating the road.
H aald the Union Paciflo had given to
all nppl 'cants who had received deeds
from the original company along the
right-of-way deeds of confirmation In
accordance with, th original Norris act
which became a law tn 1912. It was giv
ing deds of dedletion to municipalities
where strets had bean platted along the
right-of-way, and la recognizing the
equltlea of all persona who had been per
mitted to erect permanent Improvements
upon the right-of-way. He aald, however,
that th company insisted upon retaining
title to all the remained r of the right-of-way
which had been merely graaed or
cultivated by the settler, although it was
Issuing long time lease, twenty years to
be exact, to abutting land owners in all

Cltea Laramie Case.
Mr. Loomis argued that under the de
cision of the supreme court in th Lara
mie stock yards case and cases along
similar lines, principles were established
W'hlh would make the pending bill un
constitutional if adopted. Senator Cum
min remarked that hia Judgment waa
th bill waa unconstitutional and that if
ho waa on the bench h ecould not con
scientiously uphold the right of congress
to take from the railroad company the
right-of-way which had been given to it
and transfer It to the settler.
Senator Cummins suggested during Mr.
Loomis' speech that he could not under
stand why th era 11 road wanted such a
wide right-of-way. He thought It an
oonomio waste. Mr. Ixtomi replied that
in many Instances the rtght-o-fway of
that width was necessary, oltlng the

stated that the company bought a rlght-

evaded either In the letter or In spirit,
but will be connldered as mutusl agree
ments between contestants for the pur
pose of providing a banls of honorable
competition between gentlemen. The let
ter or spirit of the rules will no more be
ignored or evaded than will a gentle
man's word of honor.
ICvery honest and earnest effort will be
made to wtn a contest, but a dishonor
able victory will not be accepted.

teammates In every conceivable endeavor
and will do hia utmost to prove a worthy
representative of his institution or club.

and honored guests, even If they do not
reciprocate. No unfair advantage will
ever be taken of them. Good plays will
be suitably acknowledged.
Otriciala will be considered as Impar

will be accepted without dispute, even
when they apparently are unfair. Ad
vantage will not be taken of lax rule en
forcements. Personal abuse or Ul-fecllng
of any kind will not be publicly man
