JUSTICE TAXSOH DECIDES IN AN IMPORT
Chief Justice Paxnoti, of the s.t
jiroraa court, on Monday delivered a
timely ni important opinion upon the
subject of the rights and duties of tho
respective patties to disputes between
railroad companies or railroad com
panies' and municipalises. This ques
tion was involved in tlm appeal of the
Kaston, South Euton and West End
passenger railway compiny from a de
cree of tho common pleas of North
ampton county dismissing a bilt in
equity filed by the company against
the city of Eastern.
In 1837 the company laid a track
upon Third street in that city, using
the flat or "flange" rail, but in Novem
ber, 1838, it took up thoso rails and
relaid the tracks with T raih. This
was dono without any objection being
made at the time by any of the city
authorities. In June, 1889, however,
upon the rebuilding of the eo inty
bridge over tho Lehigh river, the street
approach was lowered, and the car
track from tho bridge to Washington
street was taken np by tbe contractor
in charge, without notice to tho com
pany. A few days later the city au
thorities notified the company not to
relay with T. rails, and upon tho com
pany's disregarding this notice, the
authorities tore up the newly laid
The company then filed a bill against
the city, praying for an injunction to
restrain any further interference with
its road. A temporary injunction was
granted and tho 'track was laid, but
upon the final hearing the court decid
ed against the company and dismissed
the bill. From this decree an appeal
was taken, and in passing upon the
subject the chief justice says : "The
question here is not what were tho
merits of this controversy upon that
we are not now called on to express
an opinion but, were the city officials
justified in deciding this question both
as to its law and its facts, and then
carrying iheir decree into effect by an
act of brute force!
"It is trae that a municipality may
with the strong band abate a public or
common nuisance which endangers
either tho health or safety of its citi
zens. But no ono contends that this
road was a naisancs at all. It was a
track laid down upon the streets under
the authority of chartered rights ; and
if the kind of rail used wai not of the
best for the interests of the city yet it
was put down in entire good faith and
by authority of law. We cannot as
aent to the proposition that the com
pany is bound by its charter to the
same kind of rail in use when the
charter was granted. Tnere is neith
er reason nor law to sustain it.
"Such a construction would deprive
the company of the be lefit of any ad'
ranee in railroad soience, and woujd
pi event the adoption of a better rail,
even if it were "advantageous both to
the company and to the city. The
learned judge of the court below re
marks that neither the master nor the
court had a right to decide a question
of nuisance or no nuisance upon a mo
tion for a special injunction. But
what right had the chief commission
er of highways and bis assistants to
decide that this track as laid was a com
mon nuisance. If they did not HO de
cide, or if in point of fact the track
was not a common nuisance, they bad
no right to tear it np, they were mero
Iy trespassers and rioters, and liable
civilly and criminally as such.
"We are emphatic upon this point
because we do not wish to be misund
erstood. There is a growing disposi
tion in this oommon wealth, especially
on the part of corporations, private as
well as munioipal, to take the law in
their own hands and settle controvers
ies by force instead of appealing to the
courts to redress their wrongs and en
force their rights in an orderly and
peaceable manner. Instances are not
rare, and are of recent occurence,
whero bands of men have stood con
fronting each other, some of them with
arms in their hands, in the assertion of
supposed rights. The public peace
has been threatened and disturbed in
this manner, sometimes resulting in
loss of life.
"It is well that it should be known
that suoh persons, whether represent
ing individuals, private corporations or
muncipalities. are simply rioters, and
answerable to tbe criminal law for
their conduct. It is a serious mistake
to suppose that municipal oflioers are
above the law, and can enforce civil
rights and perform even police duties
in their own way in disregard ot ine
forms of law. The officer of a muni
cipslity from the mayor down to a
police officer, are as much bound by
the law as a private citizen and have
no' right to transgress the law in the
enforcement of the law." The decreo
is reversed and the record remitted to
the lower oourt with instructions to is
sue an injunction as prayed for.
(From our regular correspondent.)
Washington, D. 0. Mar 21, 1890.
Ei-Spoaker Carlisle thinks tbe Lodge
Federal otection bill ono ol tho most
objoctionablo measures ever before
Congress, and considers that it would
be practically impossible to bold a
legal election under its complicated
provisions. In spjaking of the bill
Mr. Carlialo saidt"Suppose wo do a little
figuring on it to stare with, it this
bill was a law there would bo at each
of the 90,000 eleotion proeinots of ihe
country, at every Cougreasional and
Presidential eleotion, 7 Federal ofbVta's
making a total of 030,000 men, and
oostinc ten or til teen millions ot doi
lars every two years. This estimate
is based upon tbe present number oi
voting precincts but tho complisations
of this bill would make the process of
voting auoh aelow one that tho number
of precincts would have to be largely
increased, perhaps doubled, in order to
give too voters an opportunity to ue
posit their ballots." The bill has not
been much better received by tbe ro
publicans than bv the democrats.
The Blair educational bill is dead.
Hot the Senator has come up smiling
with another bill; this time the approp
riatiou is onlv $58,000,000.
The republicans of tbe House don't
vote as thev talk in contested election
cases. The democrats were led to be
lieve that seven or eight republicans
would vote witu them in tho ease oi
Mudd vs Compton, but when the vote
was taken juudd got the solid repnu
lican vote and tho seat.
There are four contested election
cases in which all tho arguments have
been heard, and it is expected that the
republicans ol tho committee on hleo
tions will try to railroad them through
A favorablo report has been made to
the IIouso on tho bill providing for
tho appointment of a commission to
investigate tho liquor traffic
The nnnouueement by tho republic
ans of tho IIouso Ways and Means com
mittee several days ago that tho tariff
bill was complete) has brought a great
deal of trouble upon them in tho shape
of objections from influential members
of their party to certain clauses of tbe
bill. Tho result is that tbo bill has
not yet been reported to tbo House
and it may not be this wc(k, and it
would not bo surprising if the pressure
should prove great enough to compal

r.miciu uiiiiimus in me uui ueiore u is
reported. It is probable that tho
democrats will prepare a substitute,
based on tbo Aims bill, but giving all
raw materials used in manufacturing a
placo on tho free list.
So goneral has been the complaint
against the paper used in the postal
cards that the Post office department
was compelled to tret alter tin con
tractor, and that individual has prom
ised to uso a better quality of paper
Tho IIouso has passed tho annual
pension appropriation bill. It was for
98,500,000, mil every man who voted
tor it knows that it is not enouab, and
that there is bound to be a big defici
ency at tho end of the next fiscal year,
but that does not stop tho demagogues
from gottiog up and howling lor ad
ditional pension legislation. One of
them in a speech advocating a
service pension said, as coolly
as it he was speaking ot buying
an apple, that the total cost of rucb a
bill wouM not exceed 018,000,000.
When Mr. Carlisle s statement was
published rec-nlly that the nppropria
tions whioh the republicans of this
Congress intended making would causo
a deficiency in tho Treasury at the end
of the next fiscal year, Mr, Cannon
chairman of the House committee on
Appropriations, stated that it was a
misrepresentation male for political
etiect. Now as good a republican as
Senator llawley states on the floor oi
the Senate that the appropriations to
be made for tbe next fiscal vear will
aggregate $523,000,000, ag'ainst an
estimated revenue of $450,090,000,
making a deficit of $73,000,000. Cer

lalCBKASINQ TRAFFIC DEMANDS INCREAS
The steady and rapid growth of the
Heading itailroad l'assenger and
freight business is attested by the
Irequenoy and magnitude ot the addi
tions mado to the motive power and
car equipment of this popular lino. The
l'ullman Uompany ot Uhioago has iust
begun the delivery of a large numoer
ot l'assenger coaches and ircigbt cars
tor wluoli tho Heading Company con
tracted several months ago. The
order includes (000 gondola cars, 50
first class Passenger coaches and 0
baggage oars. The freight oars will
be of the most substantial construction
and each will have a carrying capacity
ol 30 tons. Tho Passenger oars will
bo similar in design to the very hand
some coaches placed on the Heading
Atlantic City line last Summer. Tho
latter, which were likewise built by
Pullman, elicited general admiration.
The now baggage oars will bo of un
commonly large dimensions being i i
tended chiefly for the transporation of
the scenery of theatrical companies,
the Heading seemingly receiving the
preference of tho followers of The pis
in their journeying.
In addition to this now oar equip
ment, an order has been placed with
tho Baldwin Locomotive Works for 50
hard coal burning locomotives, embrac
ing 30 fast freight engines, 10 shifting
engines and 10 passenger locomotives,
the latter being of tho same pattern
as those which havo aohieved lamoby
roason of thoir extraordinary speed on
the Heading's New York and Atlantic
City divisions. It is expected tnat the
opening of tho season will find the
Heading fully prepared to handle the
immergeooy augmented volume of busi
Dttn which in management anticipate.
Who havo that tired and all-gone
feeling, and don't liko to be disturbed,
will continue to bo troubled with this
complaint until they renew their im
puro blood. Sulphur Bitters will
