Supreme Court Decides Many
EAILWAY UBION STRIKERS
Decision of the California Courts Af
firmed and Tliey Mut Servo Sen
tence Fur-Kcaolilns Opinion In the
Culon I'nclflo and Western Union
Cuku Handed Down.
The couviUlon and sentence of W. II.
Claue, Isaac Ross, and riiillp Stanwuod
lu the United States court for the southern
district ot California, were affirmed yester
day by tho Supreme Court of the United
States, Ihe opinion being read by Mr.
The appellants were local uffk-crs In Los
Angeles of the American Hallway Union
and were indicted for conspiracy to obstruct
the mails on the Southern raciflu Hallway
at Uio time of the great railway ktrlke In
the summer of 1891. They were sentenced
by Judge Ilossto IniprKoimientln thecounty
Jail at Los Angeles for eighteen months,
audappealed front that Judgment. Theunly
questiouof law considered by the court was
one raised in the argument ot the case, that
it was Incompetent for Congress to impose
a heavier penalty for conspiracy to commit
a crime than that Imposed for the coin
mission ot the crime itself.
This, Judge Brewer said, was Incorrect--the
power exists to separate the conspiracy
from the crime iUclf and tu affix iiikiunl
nmi iniltMiendent nenaltles to cub. There
wns nn error in the trial ot the convicted
men, and the judgment of the court below
VAN XRANKEN CASE.
Upon the authority of Johnson vs. Sayro,
decided at the last term of court, the
Supreme Court re ersed the orderof Judge
Hughes, of the Federal court for the
'P-icutii .ilktrlct of Vlnrinla. releasing
James Van Vranken from the custody of
John P. McGIeusli, nn officer of the United
States Xavy. Van Vranken -was clerk of
Paymaster Bellows, who had been found
guilty by naval court martial of comert
liig to Ills own use 1,223 of tho runds
intrusted to the paymaster, and sentenced
to imprisonment for n year.
Judge Hughes released Van Vranken,
holding that lie was amenable to the civil
courts for his crime and not to the military.
Tliis position the Supreme Court said in
the case of Johnson . Sayre, Involving
precisely the same 6tatc of facts, was In
correct, and reversed the orderof release.
In the meantime, however. Van Vranken,
it is said, has taken himself out of the
jurisdiction of the Naval authorities.
PACIFIC ROADS AND TELEGRAPH.
The long pending case of the United
States against the Union Tacltic Railway
Company and the Western Union Tele
graph Company was settled today by the
unanimous decision of the Supreme Court,
announced In an opinion delivered by Mr.
The decision Is one of the mmtjmportant
that has been made by the Supreme Court
affecting the relations of the Government
and the Pacific railroads, declaring us It
does, that Congress has the right to add
to, amend or alter the acts of 1SC2-C4,
granting aid in bonds and land tn the com
pany for the construction ot Its line.
The proceeding Involved in the present
decision was brought by the Attorney Gen
eral in pursuance to the directions con
tained In the Anderson act of 18S8, which
required all companies engaged in operat
ing railroad or telegraph lines which had
been aided in any way oy me uovcnuuui..
to maintain and operate through their
own respective corporate officers, tele
graph lines for all purposes, and to exer
cise by themselves alone all the telegraph
franchises conferred noon them.
In his opinion Mr. Justice Harlan said,
in reference to the object and scope ot the
Pacific railroad acts, that the first eighteen
sections of the acts of 1P62 G4 are wholly
inconsistent "with the idea that the Union
Pacific Railroad Company couM have ful
filled Its obligations to the government bv
simply constructing a railroad, without
making nny provision whatever fortheeon
structlon or oiH-rntion of a telegraph line,
thereby leaving nllcommiiniMitimi bv ti
graph along ltsronte to the absolute control
of private corporations deriving no author
ity from the national government and whose
operations would not ordinarily be sub
jected to national supervision."
The opinion further holds that since the
passage of the act of 18G0 no telegraph
company can, by contrnct with a railroad
.company, operating one of the post
'roadsof the United States overwhlch inter
state commerce is conducted, acquire an
exclusive right to such railroads for tele
The cause was remanueu to toe circuit,
court, with Instructions to make a sup
plemental decree enlarging the period in
which Ihe railroad and telegraph com
panies may make such arrangement, ad
justments and changes as shall become nec
essary by reason ot the annulling of the
contracts between them, to carry out the
provisions of the final decree ot that court

sentenced. She followed him to the cage
and there tearfully embraced him In loken
of farewell, crying bitterly and bestowing

Later she repaired to the office of the
District attorney to procure the necessary

by counsel yesterday before Chief Justice

ter of the extension of Thirty-seventh street
northwest, between Hack street and Ttnley
town road, tire District by Air. S. T. Thomas
assisted by ilr. Tracy L. Jelfords, and
the property owners by Gordon & Gordon.
The motion was made by Jlr. Thomas
to hate a commission uprointeu lo assets
daiujgrs lu the condemnation proceedings
and this was rcMRted by the opposing coun
sel upon the ground that in timvioinir for
the proposed cxtinslon the Commissioners
had departed absolutely from the law, and
that the extension does not conform to
the provisions of tLe act under which they
The act prescribes that the Commission

vislon was that in eMendinj: and opening
said street a curve to the westward should
be made to pass the house in part of lot
234, block 130, in Eeatty & Hawkln's ad
dition to Georgetown.
It is alleged on the part of the Com
missioners that all efforts to purchase the
land proved futile, and that the after
proceedinns came as a necessity. The ex

feet and will pass through the lands of

The contention Is that a deviation liar
been made from the original plan. In not
preserving the straight course marked
out, but this is met by the Commissioners
with the statement that the words "at or
near Schneider's lane" give them ample
discretion, and that the change made Is
in consonance with the law nnd traverses
a more naturnl roadway. The original
lines would hae taken nearly. the whole

ceedings or ruling or the trial Judge, slid
Justice Harlan In announcing the opinion
ot the Supreme Court or the United States
yesterdav, but there was error in an in
struction given to the Jury after It had
been three dnvs lomidering their -verdict.
BJcklln was tried Jointly with I wo others.
Indicted for the same crime at the same
time, and the Jury arked the court If the
Jury could agree as to some ot the defend
ants and disagree as to one.
The court replied: "I think hot; the Jury
can convict some of the defendants and
acquit some or find all guilty or all not
gulltv, but they cannot find n verdict as
to soiue and disagree as to one or more."
This, Justice Harlan said, entitled the
defendant to a new trial, Tor ir he was ine
one as to whom the Jury desired to dis
agree, it was his right to have a trial
before another Jury. The Judgment yas
therefore reversed, nnd thecase remanded
for a new trial.
