Crawford, ot Omaha. To the Editor The pnbTic mind at this time is seriously agitated over public owner- ship of railroads, railroad rates, rail- road passes, railroad taxation, trusts bad combinations. I am not prepared to question whether the agitation is not just, bat these questions should be viewed from an impartial stand- point. The public conscience should not be quickened apon the bare asser- tion of the demagogue, nor should it be lulled to sleep' by the siren song cf any corporation. Under the Ihvrs and constitution of the United States corporations have certain rights. When they infringe these rights they should be checked promptly and effectively. With this idea in View, I should like to present some facts in your colmna. The matter of railroad rate regulation is of such vast importance to the people of this state that it should be deemed worthy of careful consideration. The Interstate-Commerce Commis- sion reports, compiled by a govern- ment body supposed to be entirely impartial and whose figures are tak- en Us nual, refute .a number of con- tentions made by the demagogues. In the first place of the charges made is that the railroad companies, jy reason of watered stock, pny vast amounts to favorite stockholders, and correspondingly little to the "com- mon" people, including their em- ployes. In 1903, the last year for figures, are available.

Of tbe amount kid aside by tbe rail- roads the greater percen- tage is to be expended in farther im- provements and in bettering tbe lines of the territories through which they ran. An a matter of fact, the mil roads dre tbo greatest distributors of wealth i the country. In the payment of taxes on right of way and equipment they support thousands of schools.

Charlen A. Wrigbt and Fred D. Hauimomi vs. The Town Hartville, which wan taken to the supreme court on error to the district court of Lararniu coun- ty. The judgment in tbis casein tun district court wue for. the Town of Hartville against the plaintiffs iu error. The suit was brought in sup port of an adverse claim in the Mud office. Wright and Hammond hav ing located a mining claim within the limits of the town of Hsrtville, op- plied for a patent in the United Stul on Land office, A. patent hud previous ly heen isHUed to the town for the land covered by the mining claim. Tbo town tiled an adverse .glaim and theu brought this suit in support of sncii claim. It is held by the supremo court that the statutes of the United States under which the action was brongbt do not authorise such a sail, between any persons except adverse claimants to the unpatented tuiuoral lands and that a townsite claimant wither without a patent to mineral lands so as to authorize the bringing of an action ih the courts to deter- mine the respective rights of parties as controlling on the Laud Department of the United Statan.
