Johnson Is a candidate for the Democratic
nomination for the presidency and he will
make a. tour of the West In the Interest of

Lafe Pence, the former Populist member

and he and the Mayor had a long confer

from Johnson to come to Colorado and oth

Mr. Johnson told Pence that he had al

accept them soon.
Heretofore the Mayor has declined to con

he was elected Mayor have tended to con

TESSON HEARING AT
ST. PAUL TO-MORROW
President Francis of the World's
Fair Company Witness in In
TO BE HEARD BEFORE SANBORN.
Right of Exposition to Exercise
Eminent Domain Principal
Question at Issue in
President Francis and the attorneys for
the Exposition Company will depart to
night for St. Paul, where tne .njuuv...
suit of the Tesscn heirs against the W orW s
Fair corporation will bo heard to-morrow
before Judge Walter F. Sanborn of tho
United Btates Circuit Court.
General Counsel James L. Blair and
Judge James A. Seddon will represent tho
Exposition Company, while the Tesson
heirs will have their claim, for a perma
nent Injunction presented by Messrs.
FInkelnburg. Xagel and Krlby and Messrs.
Dawson and Garvin.
On June 30 a proceeding was Instituted
In the United States Court before Judgo
Elmer B. Adams, who upon the filing of the
bill granted a restraining order, which
was made returnable beforo Judge Sanborn
because of Judge Adams's enforced ab
sence from the city.
The nature of the proceeding: has never
been fully set forth. In detail, tuc bill
charges that tho World's Fair Company Is
merely a private corporation, organized for
pecuniary gain; that the statute under
which It was created and which gives it
the same right to condemn as railroad and
telegraph companies. In unconstitutional, be
cause It undertakes to give this right of
eminent domain to a private corporalon.
The complaianants allege that to permit
their land to be taken under such a statute
would be to act without due process of law.
a thing forbidden by both the State and
the Federal constitutions. The WorM's Fair
Company will contend that It Is not a pri
vate but a public corporation and that the
use to which lt proposes to put the land Ls
a public use and that l Intends to take
the land only after full and Just compensa
tion ls made to the owners as tho law pro
Ides. It will be maintained also that the ques
tion as to the use to which the company
proposes to put the land is a Judicial ques
tion, which must be determined by the
court in which the condemnation proceed
ing ls Instituted; that, since the owners
hae the right to test this question before
the State Circuit Court, they luno their day
In court; have an adequate remedy at law
and are not being deprived of their prop
erty without due process of law.
The Issue to be argued before Judge San
born on Monday will be whether the United
States Court will entertain Jurisdiction of
the case in view of the fact that the com
plainants have a full and adequate remed
at law In the State Court, and whether
the World's Fair Company Is a public cor
poration and the purpose to which lt is
proposed to put the land ls a public use.
The Tesson heirs allege that their prop
erty Is worth $10,000 an acre, or JL0W."A
They also allege that It has been their
homestead for the last thirty years, thus
basing their right to resist the temporary
condemnation on sentiment that their home
is likely to be destroyed. The Tesson tract
comprises about 100 acre", of which the Ex
position Company desires to us- the east
fifteen acres on the Sklnker road, which ls
1,000 feet cast of the family residence.
On this tract, according to tho plans t'f
the ExpoalUon Company, there Is to be no
building nearer than 1,500 feet east of the
Tesson residence. The Exposition Company
claims to have offered a rental equal to 5
per cent on JS,0X an acre and a large sum
of money in addition, and with the assur
ance that the property would be restored to
Its present condition; that no trees would
be cut and no grading done except such as
would Improve the property.
