Logansport lad t Coverti Too tfuch Ground and Would Be to a Gund JUany Combina tions That Are Innocuous as It Tho Supreme Court om State Hallway ou the Montana Sena torial Day In Congress WASHINGTON CITY March anti trust bill was the occasion of an interesting debate in the senate yesterday Teller was the first member to make extended remarks He said the bill would apply to the Farmers alliance and the National Farmers league which were organized with the avowed pur pose of increasing the prices of farm produce thing which he regarded as most desir able and as absolutely essential to the pros parity the country for everybody knew that unless the ot farm products in this country could bo increased agreat many of the farmers would soon be forced into bankruptcy and turned out oi their homes Another Combination Involved Utforge said that he thought that was a good point and referred to the Knights of Labor as another organization that would come within the scope of tho bill because the object ot tbat order was to increase their wages and consequently to increase tho cost Reagaii thought the tirst necessity was to down trusts and combinations which gave life to Knights of Labor and trade unions A Necessary Evil Says Stewart Stewart said that tho whole subject was surrounded with difficulties of the gravest kind Combinations were at the founda tion of all civilized society They seemed to be like the necessary evil of civilization itself The English people had tried to check them for hundreds of years and had finally corne to the conclusion that legisla tion on all such subjects simply retarded trade and there would be the same result in this country if the like thing was attempted He could fltid uo warrant in the constitution for such legislation It the bill were consti tutional it would permit the prosecution of tho farmers of losva or Kansas who com bine to hold back their corn until prices were better Tho States Not Competent Hoar criticised tho bill ia some of its legal aspects arid claimed that it failed to afford any adequate remedy Sherman replying said that if the duty on cotton clothes or woolens was a little too low to protect manufacturers in Massachu setts uot a month or a day would be al lowed to pass before he Hoar would de mand a remedy in the way of raising the duty Here was tv remedy for a greater wrong than auy thut resulted from a low tariff State courts hod been endeavoring to wrestlo with comb illations Ho instanced the sugar trust composed of seventeen com binations and asked what remedy had the people of Now York against that combina tion Nemo at all he said except against one of the corporations Included in it A rem edy would never como from the class of men engaged in such monopolies He had aeon the gradual growth of combinations and knew thut their power was growing greater and greater and stronger and stronger And it congress was impotent to deal with that evil iE it could not prescribe anything but quack would prove itself utterly unfitted to perform its duties Vest Indulges Sarcasm Vest aimed some sarcastic remarks at Sherman denying that chera was anything in that souators career that gava him the right to assume that he had discovered the only remedy and the only road to success against combinations MONTANAS SENATORS of Two Reports ou Tliell Ad uiisftlon WASHINGTON CITY March re ports submitted to tho senate on the Mon tana senatorship being from tho Republican nnd Democratic members of the elections committee ore not what might be called harmonious The majority gives at the out let the circumstances surrounding the elec tion of Saunders and Powers by the Iron Hall or Republican legislature composed of half the members of the senate and the Re publican representatives claiming to be elected and Maginnis and Clark by the court bouse legislature composed of half of the senate and the Democratic representa tives from Silver Bow county claiming to be elected The whole case then the report says turns upon the quostiun as to which of these two sets were legally elected A Review of the Law After reviewing antecedent legislation tinon tiie subject of the election including tho enabling act of congress the ordinance passed by the coustitutional convention and the provisions of the old territorial laws the majority concludes that the territorial law providing that tha county clerk shall issue certificates ot election to representatives in the legislature was superseded by the ordi nance of the constitutional convention which imposed that duty upon the state board of caavaiisers and holds that tha Re publicans wera proper representatives and that this view is supported toy the undis puted evidence laid before tha committee by the Democratic contestants from the Minority Report The minority report makes the claimthat the true legislature of Montana consisted of the senate and house which met at the court house in Helena that eight of the senators Jind twentynina members of the house of representatives thereof held a joint conven tion for the election of a United States seii utor in which a majority ot all the inem Ijen elected to the legislature appeared and acted Jan 71890 This session of tha legis lature was recognised by the governor of tihe state The session at which the adverse and utected was never recognized by the govern or nor was their election ever certified to by the governor Tlie report takes exactly opposite ground to that of the majority as to tha election in prticinct Si Silver Bow ixmnry and claims the election of the Dem representatives VICTORY FOR THE RAILWAYS Title Mluueaota Railway Rate Xjiw clared Unconstitutional WASHISOTOS Crrr March opin ion was rendered in tha supreme court ot the United States yesterday in the case of tho Chicago Milwaukee and St Paul and the Minneapolis Eastern railroads against tho state of Minnesota and the state railroad commissioners The cases involve the right ot the state warehouse commission to estab lish freight rates within the state The su preme court of the state had sustained thg commission and had directed the companies to change their tariff in with the rates and regulations fixed by the com mission Tha opinion rendered yesterday irasnot unanimous Justices Bradley Gray and Lamar nissenting from it add Justice Sliller giving his qualified indorsement StateDecision The opinion ot the court Judg ment of the state supremecourt and ranumoi the case to that court tor further Tha opinion of the suprenje j sota is reviewea at tengtn ana mis ft ia stated authoritatively declares that it is the expressed intention of the legislature of Minnesota by that statute that rates re commended and published by the commission are the only ones that are lawful find there fore in the contemplation of law the only only ones that ara equal and reasonable The court adds In other words although the railroad company is forbidden to estab lish rates that are not equal and reasonable there is no power in the courts to stay the hands of tho commission if it chooses to establish rates that are unequal and un reasonable Tlie Companys Ignored This being the construction of the statute by which we are bound in considering the present case we are of opinion that so con j strued it conflicts with the constitution of j the United States in the particulars com I plained of by the railroad It de prives the company of its right D adjudi cate investigation by due process of law un der the forms and with the machinery pro vided by tha wisdom of successive ages for the investigation judicially of the truth of a matter in controversy and substitutes therefore as an absolute finality the action of a railroad commission which in view of the powers conceded to it by the state court cannot be regarded as clothed with judicial functions or possessing the machinery a court of CONGRESS EPITOMIZED How tlie Rational Legislators Put In a Dnjs

Turnbull folowed this blow with another and Hyde drew a revolver and shot his as sailant alleging that he believed Turnbull was drawing a knife on him The above story is very much like many others
