Supremo Court today reversed the decision of the Minnesota Su premo Courts against cor Lain railroad com panies known as tho Granger Tho issue was certain rates proscribed by tho Stale Railroad Commissioner which tho railroad companies assorted wore so low as to practically amount to Iho doprlval of tho company of Its property without duo process of Justice Ulatohford delivering tho opinion of court says Itmust accept tho construcUon put upon the State statute by tho Minnesota Supremo Court when that court declared that it Is tho expressed intention of the Loghtlaturo that rates llxod by the Eallroad Commissioner arc not simply advisory but final and conclusive that the law neither contemplates nor allows any issue mado or an inquiry had as to their equality or rea sonableness Iu fact in other words al though tho railroad company Is forbidden to establish rates not equal and reasonable there Is no power In tho courts to stay tho Commissioner If ho chooses to establish rates that arc unequal and unreasonable Tho questionof reasonableness of rates for tranyporlaUon by a railroad company says Mio opinion Is eminently a question for judicial Investigation requiring duo process of

and as the Supremo Court of Minnesota refused Mils the case in opinion should be re versed on ground that this is denial of due process of law Justice Bradley for himself and Justices Gray and Lamar delivered an oral dissent Tt seemed to him that the decision of tho court practically overruled Its decision in othor cases In which it had boon hold that the adjustment oX rates was a Legislative and not a Judicial perogatlvo Tho courts should never make Issue with tho Legislative department whore It was possible to avoid it It might be asked If the public was not at the mercy of tho Legislature Ho an swered yes there had to be a final tribunal somewhereto decide every caso Tho ques tion which was the proper final tribu nal In his opinion It was tho Legislature lie did not moan that there

esUvbUshinent of un Irish land department Balfour said thnt in proposing tho formation of a land tho complex nature of the ques tion presented itself Tiicro were now no fewer than iivo bodies for tho valuation and sale of land Tho bill proposed an amalga mation of these into ono body Regarding the question Ought the land purchase bill to bo compulsory tho Gov ernment answered no Compulsion should be used most sparingly Ironi cal Irish but when justified by necessity it should be applied Compulsion could not bo onesided If they compelled landlords to sell they must force tenants to buy A most cogent reason against compulsion was that they could not make the bill compulsory without applying it to tho wholo of Ireland Tho Government saw no possibility of tho immediate consum mation of such an enormous transaction as the compulsory transfer of the whole of the land of Ireland from tho existing owners to occupiers Ought thoy to throw any risk upon tho British taxpayers Tho Govern ment liiiswered no Still British credit un der perfectly secure conditions must be used in dealing with the question of advances to tommts to enable them to purchase Thfl Government had decided against advancing moro than twenty years rental at the local rates now paid by the landlords Bnlfour thon went on at groat length to explain scheme of security of funds the latter being very complicated The bill in a large portion is the Ashbourno act Im proved and with additions required for se curity for purchasers etc After an elabo ratefinancial detail showing how tho im perial oxchecquer would provide against default Balfour said a default was impos sible unless there was a repetition of the famine of 184C It is designed to use onefourth of 3 per cent from the tenants 4 per cent as a fund for the erection of laborers1 dwellings A grant of a million and a half from the Irish Church surplus would bo do voted to relieving depression fostering in dustries and ameliorating the condition of tbo poor districts Balfour in conclusion defended tho scheme as without risks to the imperial taxpayer while the ad vanced under the bill with the of the Ashbcurno act would establish a perpetual fund from which future pur chases might bo made Gladstone scheme was certainly very complicated and thanks were due to Balfour for the obvious pains ho had taken in its preparation It was premature he added to discuss the involved proposals of the The bill passed its first reading A GLADSTONE SPEECH Gladstone tonight in a speech to the National Liberal Club spoke of Balfours purchase bill as a bold measure which in volved the British taxpayers assuming large liabilities aud demanded a searching In vestigation Referring to the Parnell Com mission he said he could not conceive a shorter method of suicide than that adopted by tho House of Lords in approving there port The Tory majority had invented poli tical methods as newfangled as they were abominable COMMENT ON THE LAND BHIj The Daily News speaking of tho Land Purchase bill says One thing stands out clearly that tho British credit may be pledged to the extent of for the benefit nominally of the Irish tenant but really for tho benefit of the The News says tho voice was Balfours but the hand was Goschens Parnell says the bill is absurd and objec tionable in the highest degree one of the fatal defects being that it gives no local control over its administration Davitt pronounced against the bill insidiousproposal to give the landlord more than the value of his land The Times does not commit itself net having studied the bill but thinks upon the whole that it seems to prompt the crea tion of a peasant proprietary on large scale without involving the British exchequer in risk CALL AND THE MARSHAL A Scurrilous Epithet
