court does not (ouch upon the

the ques ion of its own jurisdiction
on tne ma'ters inro red. If on final
hearing, however, the Court decides
in favor of the old campany's claim to
an exclusive privilege it will exclude
the Dew comrany from the streets of

be, what will the new csmrany
do with its track and rollinsr

two companies mar share the

We hare coaeiderrd the milinn
made by the Taxing Dilrict of Hhelby
county ana ine uitizens' lUuroa.l
Company to remand the casts that
have been removed to this court from
the Chancery Court of Shelby county,
the two caes being the Memphis City
Railway Company agairst the Taxing
District of S lelby county, and tbe
Citizens' Ra lroad Gortipmy against
me raempma uity Kaiiway company,
In 18U5 the Legislature chartered
the Membbis City Railway Company;
and by the fourth section of its char
ter it was authorized to construct.
maintain, u?e and operate street rail
ways Dy animal power, on all or any
oi me mreen oi the cur ot Mnmphls.
It was further anthoriad bv that
fourth section to contract with the
city of Memphis tor any purpose
wuHtever. canneciea. eitntr aitectiv
or indirectlv, with the construction,
maintenance and operation of ssld
railway.
It tilled a bill, when it was oh-
slructed In January, 180J, against the
cityoi MempniB, ana btd i s rights
at serie j to some extent in mat lit ai
tion. dod mac is not material tu a
decision oi this case.
In 18S0 it entered into a contract
with tbe City of Memphis, and bv the
terms of that contract, whenever in
tbe Judgment of the Mayor and Alder
men ct the Uity ot Memphis, a tail
roan tracic bdouiu become necessary
on any of the streets not previously
cccupiea dv me comDanv. it sbon id
give them Bixty days' notice for the
const-uction of a railway on said
street, and tbe company had to in
dicate its intention to build tbe road
thus indicated by the citr within
sixty days, and to actually construct
tbe fame within tbe course of twelve
mcnths. That was the then stats of
the rights ot the City Railway Com'
pany.
la istits tbe .Legislature chartered
the Ciiisins' Railway Company, and
au'noiueu it to lay aown street rau
way tracks on any of the streets and
roads of Shelby County. It amended
lhatactin 1867 si es to enab e it to
run its cars into the City ot Memuhis.
for freight purposes, perhaps. In
March, 1870, there was a still further
charter tf the Citi'iacs' Pussenser
Mtiiwar uomDanv. dv the louitn
clause of which it was enacted as fol
lows:
"Be it further enacted. That the raid
corporation, by its a rectors and of
fleers, (hall hare power to make and
execute contracts and agreements with
- constructing end maintaiaina
emu eirurt railways in me
eaid city, upon any of the streets
thereof, upin which street railways
are not low constructed, such rail-
tarave tnba nm, ra fori htr ant mo 1 n . ,.
and may construct, maintain, uee ana
operate as aforesaid, such street rail
v. ays, on all or any of the eaid streets,
u;iug far that purpose all neotssary
machinery and quipments."
Under this act of 1870 it will be seen
that those two street lailway charters
embodiea tubetantia.ly the rams
grants, privileges and powers. Now,
mis last act is reierrea to Dy tne plead
in trs as aa interpretation of tha inten-
tion of the Lsia'atore in its grant to
tbe Citizens' Street Railroad Oompa-y.
If the contention of the Memphis City
Street Railway Company be correct,
namely, mat its grant gives that com-
or any of tha streets of Memphis, and
Ku-J omu.uBs.v IIKUI rj UWUUV Sill.
tbe foregoing be a correct interpreta
tion of the extent of tbe grant to the
Ciikens' Street Railroad Company, of
coarse mere is, noon the reiy reading
and production of the two charters, a
conntct, arising out of legisla
tive grants. In such a con
flict as that there is necessarily
presented a federal question on Ihe
lace oi tne two charters. And, even
it less than this should be claimed for
tbe new company, it is equally plain
on tbe facta appearing in thia record
that it asserts a franchise which may
conflict with that of the old com nan v.
It is not required, in order to glre
Ihli court Jurisdiction, that al the
uunuuuD iu Miti voo ounii uo ui
federal character. There it hardly a
case that is removed from tbe State to
tbe Federal Courts that does not in
volve other questions. This was set
tled as early as the esse of Mayer vs.
Cooper, 6 Wall., a case fhat went
from this State. In which tbe Canrt
Bays: "It is no objsct on that ques-
lions are involved which are not ot a
federal character. If one of the latter
exists, if there be a single such in-
mw1lAnt in thA mass, it la anrnrfanf.
-? M. cisire 5pon the

Whenever that is shown by the Dlead-
lngs, exhibits or petition the right of
1 removal exists and this court takes
jurisdiction take it upon tbe theory
of government, the theory of National
Government, that in respeet to Fed
eral questions, questions which arise
out ol the laws or ihe Conati'Ution of
the United Sta es, tbe Sopreme Conrt
of the Uni'ed Btater shall be tbe ulti
mate aibter. And this act of 1875
rbicb authorise t';e removal i a
remedial art. It was Intended to ob
viate the d lays lncid nt to trials in
the Mate CourU and removals follow-

1800 acd 1872 tbe Memphis City RH
way entered into such a contract. Va
terms and stipolatmnsof which I have
already stated. In 1885 the city of Mem
phis entered info n contract with the
Cl'lzens' Railway Comiaoy, wUlch nr.
dertakes in "exprebs tetm, and is
dis inct'y averred in tbe pleadingp, to
modify, change and limit ihe contract
entered inter in 18tiOWth the Memphis
City R.ilroidOompauy. Thecntiact
undertakes in exprfse terms ti matrlrt
the rights cUrtmed or estwirted by the
Memphis City Kaiiway Company, and
to exclude- it from a oottion of.tho
streets ot the clry of Memphi; to de
ans Its limits and exclude it. Now
the groandicn which the city and tbe
new company claim that liaht are
wholly imtoateria1, aniens claimed
under the - old corn par 7" ftaolf.
They claim by virina cf, the

that street railway, that the
city had no inch power. That
clause in the chaitrof the ra lwav

show how thiae . powers may and
do arise, .if at all, by ltgiela

cla roed, and inteifcring with the old
company. Then when you come to
read the answer of the Taxing Dis
trict, tbe Taxing District sets up in
its own defense the righ's of the new
company, and an authority to con
tract with tbe new cimmnvln the
exerciss of its own powers and the
powers conferred upon the new com
pany. Ana so, upon bin ana anawer
appears a rederal.question, perfectly
distinct and clear.
In the other case the CitlxW
Riilway Cimpany against the Mem
phis City Railway Comoanr the bill
and answer, and the cross bill and
answer, and tbe exhibits, raiee the
same Federal question, perfectly plain
on the pleadings, to say nothing of the
petition for removal.
Uar conclusion is that while there
may be also other questions, it is per
fectly clear that tuere is a Federal
question in both cas'S that will five

which ihe BODreiia Court of the

Last erening the Troubadoura gave
an amusing musical sxtraragaoEi at
the theater before a lares audience. It
is called The Brook, and while it has
little or no plot, it gives the Salsbury
Troubadors an opportunity to display
their varied talents as actors, violioists
and dancers. The entertainment was
much enjoyed br the audience, and
tbe different members of the company

LECTURES ON rCIENCF,
By Prof Aleaanileir fllaehell,tt Ihe
Y. fJ. H. A. Hall.
Pi of. Alexardrr Wiucholl, of the
Uuiversity el Michigan, delivered on
Huntlsy the first cif stries of three
inc ur, s on scientific subj cts. In an
ticip.tion ol a rjr iotleolul treat,
an andlenes of nearly COO people, com
posed of the most refined, intelligent
and critical ol our citizens', awetn
bed at the Y. M. U. A. Hall
ti hear the distinguished lecturer.
Promptly at 8 o'clock the curtain r-se.
Oa the stage wi h Prof. Winchell sat
Mr. J. M. Keating, Oen. R. F. Patter
son and Mean. J. S. Menken and T.
B. Edgirgtin. Mr. Keating briefly
introduce I the lecturer, who imme
diaely advanced and was greeted
with aPDlause. Ue announced
the snbjtct as "Science, the
Ally of Christianity," and divided his
subject into seven beads, as follows:
Hcienoels ChrUtianity's ally, first, in
seeking for that which ia true; second,
in proving a supersensible world;
tnird, in pioving, in conjunction with
philosophy, tbe existence and attri
butes of a supreme being; fourth, in
provirg man a religious being; filch,
in proving the validity of the
fundamental propositions of re
ligion ; slxtb, in vindicating
the troth and authority of the sacred
Scriptures. In conclusion, the learned
gentleman dwelt upon the lolly of
warfare between the followers cf
science and professors of religion, and
urged the importance of harmony be
tween them, holding that religion im
paired its own Interests by rejecting it.
We cannot follow tbe learned lec
turer throughout his instructive die
course, which wss replete with forci
ble illus rations of the theories he
thought to establish. His delivery is
eminently pleaelngi and he has the
habit of accurate and felicitious speech
to a high'y developed degree ; these
advantages added to a profound ac
qna ntance with almost every depart
ment of science make him eminent
ly an instructive and agreeable
lecturer to listen to. List tight he
lectured upon the "Lifetime of a
World," and tonight he will conclude
the series with ''li Evolution God
