legislation. Keedcd to Protect Government Interest
in Bonded Eoads.
The Commissioner of Eailroads thinks
the business of building sew lines has been
overdone, especially in the 'West He com
mends the workings of certain railway laws,
and indicates the necessity for further care
Yasbtkgton, September 30. In the
annual report of Railroad Commissioner
Horace A. Taylor, to-day filed with the
Secretary of the Interior, the commissioner
gives an exhaustive review of the railroad
situation in the West and Xorthwest, and
discusses the ruinous rate wars which he
styles alike destructive of the interests of
the roads and the shippers. Speakinc of
railway legislation he says he believes the
most of it has been wisely conservative, and
The theory that the recognized laws of trade
would ultimately so far prevail as to sufficiently
regulate the management of railroads in the
interest of the public, has not proven to he cor
rect. Events hare demonstrated that these
law s have become practically inoperative, and
that it is necessary to invoke legislation. The
exceedingly unfortunate situation which
has of late prevailed in the West and North
west, presents a vivid illustration, and Rives an
expensive, though apparently unheeded lesson,
as to the effect of unregulated competition.
Unless conditions are changed through the
voluntary actions of tne railroad companies, or
by legislative interference, commercial rela
tions will be seriously disturbed and lasting in
juries inflicted upon the railroads and upon
every department of trade.
MOKE EOADS THAN TRAFFIC.
I believe that in many sections ot the West,
conspicuously in the States of Iowa and Kansas,
the mileage of railroads is greatly in excess of
the legitimate needs of the carrying trade. If
this be true, then many of the investments in
railroad properties there must fail to jield re
munerative dividends or the schedules of rates
be fixed so high as to prove ruinously burden
some to traffic For this unfortunate condition
ot affairs, neither the people nor the railroad
companies are wholly to blame. Both have
contributed to bring it about.
The people have encouraged railroad con
struction wherever it could besecured, regard
less of existing necessities or future complica
tions, and tbe railroad companies have been
duly eager to control tbe trade by building new
lines and feeders for established ones where
the volume or traffic was not sufficient to sup
port them. This condition of things presents
B problem difficult of solution. It is safe to say
that tbe remedy does not lie in the levying of
extortionate charges or waging of reckless
rate wars. The security of the railway system
lies in administering it with careful respect to
justice and the public welfare.
ITS OPPEESSIVE HAND
fi's laid too heavily upon the people,revenge and
revolt will be sure to follow. If investors in
railroad properties have expended their capi
tal in the construction of lines not demanded
by the present trade, then they must share the
fate of all who Invest in unproductive enter
prises. Relief can only come through increased
settlement, stimulating business and develop
ing natural resources Both the interests ot
the railroads and the public suffer from the
lact that railroad managers devote their ener
gies too largely to the securing of trade from
comp-t'ng centers, and do not sufficiently en
courage the development of local traffic.
At least two of my predecessors in office have
rocomme :ded the enactment of a law providing
for the funding of the debts of the bonded
roaas. These recommendations have been
approved by Secretaries of the Interior and of
ine ireasurr in their report.", and by President
Cleveland in a message to Congress. The
questions involved are serious and lmnortant,
and I am of the opinion that the time has
arrived for some positive legislation.
GOVEEN3IENT INTEREST IN RAILWAYS.
Substantially the recommendations made by
tbe officers mentioned have been embodied in
bills and presented in Congrcs, but no final
action has been had on them. It has been
fonndthat the legislation establishing a sin Ic
ing fund and providing for the payment of a
certain per cent of the net earnings of the roads
into it, will not realize the end sought, the pay
ment of accruing interest and the final ex
tinguishment of the ilebtsdue the Government.
The plan heretofore i roposed is, In short, to
fund the whole remaining debt and interest in
obligations offixedamountsaud maturity. Time
is ot small importance compared with security
in iue aujujtmcni oi toese matters. Should a
funding bill be presented to Congress at the
forthcoming, or at any subsequent session it
should be carefully guarded so as to protect
fully the interests of the Government, and im
pose no unreasonable obligations or undue
hardships upon the railroad companies.
It is very clear to my judgment that there

The F. it 91. Bank Creditor to be Reached
by AdvertUIng Only 160 Oat of 1,000
William H. HcClung, auditor of the ac
counts of the defunct Farmers' and Me
chanics' Bank of the Southside, yesterday
filed a petition in court He states that he
is almost ready to make his .report. The
indebtedness of the bank is over $320,000,
represented by about 1,000 creditors. Of
these about 160 have appeared by attorney,
and 100 in person, before him. It has be
come evident that with few exceptions, tbe
remaining claims will depend for proof on
the books and accounts of tbe bank, verified by
tbe oath of the cashier. The residences of the
greater part of these creditors are unknown to
the auditor, and be has no means to reach
them. He states that he therefore cannot com- J
ply with tbe regular rule of courpresuinng a
personal notice, and asks that in this case the
rule be suspended and the notice to the cred
itors given by advertisment in the newspapers.
Judge Collier granted the petition.

Emma E. Stiller Wauta Her Partner to

name of the Franklin Electrical Supply Com
pany. Granger kept the books and bandied all
the money. The profits were large, and be
kept a bank account making all the deposits in
his own name. For the last 11 months, the
plaintiff claims, the books show a persistent
?mrpose on the Dirt of Granger to defraud her.
le has made false entries of large sums ex
pended, double entries of items of expense,
charges his private expenses to the firm, and

In the bill against Granger she asks for an
accounting and settling up of the business.
Granger to be compelled to pay her all money
in the bill against Mrs. Granger she alleges
that since the partnership commenced Mr.
Granger baspurcuased two lots on Forbes
street, near Craig street and placed them in

money she was defrauded of. and she asks that
it be decreed that Mrs. Granger hold the prop
erty as trustee for tbe plaintiff until the settle
ment of the partnership accounts.

. A TOKED COJaSPIBACY.
The Flack Divorce o Myled by tbo Grand
Jury The Sheriff and Ills Asso
ciate! Indicted Jad&e and
Sew Tobk, September 30. At noon to
day the grand jury came into Part I, Gen
eral Sessions, with the result of their inves
tigation of the Flack divorce case. Fore
man Fosdick read a long presentment wnich
stated that the jury gave the case
very careful consideration, and had called
before them and examined every person who
could throw any light on the conspiracy.
The jury were satisfied that there was a
vicked conspiracy. That such a conspiracy
could be carried on under cover of law was
of great public concern. The jury called
tbe attention-of the Legislature to the per
nicious system of appointing referees to
take testimony in divorce cases. The testi
mony should be taken by Judges in open
court The harm which would be done bv
tbe publicity of such evidence would be far
less than that which befalls when things are
"3onc in secret
'"It is obvious." runs the presentment,
"that the decree of divorce could not have
been obtained without the sanction of Judge
Hookstaver; that sanction was obtained
partly by deceit and imposture, and partly
either by judicial negligence or judicial col
lusion. If by negligence, such was inex
cusable; if by collusion, such was criminal.
We have not determined which."
The jury next called attention to the
pernicious habit of lawyers allowing their
names to be used in cases in which they are
not employed. Lawyer Wright, while it
might be said he intended no wrong, still
deserved to be censured. Ambrose Jlonell
and Joseph Jleeks, the jury thought, had
imposed on the Court, and had ob
tained the divorce by collusion,
deceit and fraud. The presentment
concluded by stating that the jurors, after
the most careful investigation, had come to
thetscyjiion that a wicked and criminal
conspiracy had been committed, and the
persons whose names appeared on the ac
companying indictments deserve to be
treated according to law. Foreman Fos
dick then handed Jndge Gildersleeve the
presentment and the indictments.
District Attorney Fellows stated late this
afternoon that the following persons were
indicted in connection with tbe Flack con
spiracy case, and would be in court to-mor
