Impressed with tlie Idea that no Amoricnn

going abroad ignorant of tho natural re
source of bit own country. Something,
t least, be 'ought t know of our leading
natural wonders before he should uko

those preparatory f tudies should ho tako a
ride over tho mountain dlvlon of the Col
orado Central railroad.
Leaving Dunvor at t a.m., wo nrriruil
at Qoldon at 9 a.m. A right protty, bust

from Denver between foothills that shut
out the plains and mountains, and that al
most (but out high llenven itself. From
there we soon whirled into tho entrance
of tho einyon out of fight and sound
of Golden, Our Ilttlo eoglno now begins
to snort and pant right furiously as tho

W'u now come to tho third prominent
idea of tho declaration tho sovoruigntv
of tho vteonle. It is Important horo to dis
tinguish between fovcreignty and the ex
orcists of sovereign powers. While tho
people of tho I'nlled states aetiiic In con
lormity with the I'ederal constitution, nre
sovereign, they havn dele-atod tho exor
cisoofonly certain sovoreign powers of
the Flornl govorninmit, have denied tn
both thy Federal and state government
tho nxorclso of certain other sovereign
powers, and havo left tho exurcite of tho
bahinco of aoverolgn powers to tho state
Tho practical quostlou now heloro the
peoplo, and which desorvos their mot se
rious consideration, is whether any of tho
resorved governmental powers of a stato
can, by contract, bo parted with, for all
time to come, to tho corpornto creatures of
the state. Tho powor to limit and regu
late thechargos of common enrrtors is ono
of tho rosorvt'd governmental powers of
the state. Tho powor to create corpora
lions, and endow them with tho enp'acity
of becoming common carriers is bIso ono
of tho reservod governmental powers of
the s ato. Is the uovernrnenta) power of
tho stato over common carriers, whother
Individuals or corporations, tho subjoct
matter of bargain and sale?
In this connection I proposo briefly to
direct vour attention to somo of tho 1'eKal
principles upon which 1 baso my boilof
tbat ttie L'ovcrnmunt lias ana must retain
the power to limit and rcguhilo tho rates
ol railway ciiargos.
Jtnilroad corporations arc common car
riers. This has hoeu rupoalodly decided
bv the courts, Tho common currier "ox-
ereised n public employment. on salu
Lord Holt, Chief Justice of tbu King's
lieiicb, in tbo leading case of Cogg Vf.
Bernard, decido.l In 1703. (2 IA. 'Ray
mond, 917.) In another cast-, decided in
ISI7, JuJgn IlolrovU, of tbe King s Uerich,
said that the com men carrier, "by anciont
aw, held us it were a public otllco, I-'
Chitty, K 1 ) And In another case Lord
Kenyon said : "There are ucts of Parlia
ment which authorize Justlcos of the peaco
to fix the rates to bo tukon by carriers, and
I buve known instances ot implications to
the Sessions for that purpose." (2 l'oako's

Lord Kenyon (3 William nnd JIary ch.
V2) recites that ''divers waggoners and
other carriers, by combination Amongst
thetnselve, havo raised tho prices of thn
carriage of good", etc.'' (See 0 Term K.
is. note A )
Thee are all old English caes, and they
clearly eittblish that at tho common law,
the common carrier exorcises apuoiioern

and ns to ratos of chaiges is subject to leg

tu tho reign of sVilllam and .Mnry, divers
wagoners and carriers, uy combinations
among themselves raised tbe prices of car
riage ol goous, ana tnereupon parliament
passed an act giving powor to the Justices
at tho quarter session", to llx their ratos of
charges. And tho amo principles havo
been recognized and acted upon in this
country. Tho supremo court of Now

23'-' ) Tho mprnino court say that "tho
irailaoad) company becomes a common
farrier, and thm oxerclses a sort of public
oiUce." (21 Pa. Ht. 080.) And tho m
preme court of tho Vnited States also say
that tho common carrier "is in tho oxor
clso of a sort of public olllce. if. Howard,
Now tho p.iwer of Icgislntiro bodio to
control tne rate oi cinrgos or common
earrler, whon individual, has never been
judicially quotioiiud. Wo llnd this power

Wfl thus lee that the courts of this
e.jui.try. as well as thucuurU of Knsland,
dnclare that tho common carrier evicUei
public employment lioMi n ort nt
public olllce, and as to rates of charges is
subject to legislative control. 'Ihe oom-
mon earner exercises a public oiuplov
iiient, and thoreforu cannot lika tho trades

holds as It were a public olllce and thore.

companies, as wull as private individuals,
whoever tbey otoicisu thu functions ol'u
tjtmn,iu carrier on public highways who-o
uit as such has been acquired under and
by rtrtue of tho sovereign power of thn
stile, assume alike a public character, and
as to their rates of charges araaliko anion
at e to public law. Our own supremo
court sy. "Corporations aro artificial
pertoiii kudowed with limited powers and
capacilife' and are subjoct to tho general
Lws and legislation of the state, tbe tame
as naiural persons It would be
utiori to suppose that tho powers of gov
ernment aro greater over thn rights nf tho
being endowed by the creator, than over
the being spoVa Into existenco by human
laws.- (21 111 AS.)
1 ho supremo court of the United States,
at well n the supreme court of this stato
bold that railways are public highways,
and upon this ground ulono sustain taxa-1
tiOD Iu aid of thvir construction In tho
recent Wisconsin bond case, the .supremo
court ol the United JUntos sayss "If thoro
bo any otirposo for which taxation would
soem legitimate, It is for tho making and
malntalnanco of highways. They havo
always been goTornmonta'l affairs, and It
lias ever been recognizor asonooi tnomosi
Important duties of tho state, to provide
and caro for them. ItU
iid that railways nre not public high
ways per se. ' mis is a
tuiitake. In tbolr very nature they are
nubile hlnhwavs. ' It Is
the purpose and tho uses of n work 'which
determlno Its character. i
Emitter who is tbo agent, tbe function
performed Is that of the state. Tbouirb
tbe ownership (of a railway) it private,
the use Is public. So turnpikes, bridges,
ferries ana canals, a'tbougn made oy indi
viduals under public grants, or companies,
are regarded ae publlcl-Jurls."
Rillroads, therefore, considered as public
hi?hwav are public Institutions, In the
languape of the court of appeals of New
York:J "Tbe railroads arc public Institu
tions established by law for public accom
modation. They have, except where they
ailjoin or aro nearnavigablo rivers, super
seded nil other extensive ways or convey
ance, and havo thus rendered travelors and
owners of freight In a great tncasuro de
pendent upon tbolr moans of locomotion."
(20 N. Y. 131.) And tho supremo court
of this State has also characterized them
as "public Institutions."
Ifamember that wo are considering rail
road cornoratlons in their character of
common curriers operating tho public
hltfhwavs of tho state. Common rarrlors
aro public s "rviuiii, in a ilnuble sense when
entrusted with the charge of public lurti
tutlons. That imblio institutions aro nec
essarily controlftblo by the legislaturo Is
admitted oven in the Dartmouth college
tase. In that case Chief Justice .Marshal
say: "Tho character of civil Institutions
do'os not grow out of their Incorporation,
but out of tho manner in which they aro
formed, and tho objects for which they are
created. Tho right to chango them Is not
founand on tlioir being rorporaieu, mi; on
their being tho instruments ot tno govern
ment, oroated for its purposes. The samo
Institutions creatod for tho samo objects,
though not incorporated, would bo public
Institution', and, of courso, bo controllable
by the legislature. Tho incorporating act
neithor gives nor prevents this
control. 1 1 Who.ttpn, MS.)
Chief .lustico Marshall siys that
public institutions are, of course, controll
able by tho legislature. .Mark you' lie
does not say public institution aro con
trollablo by courts nnd juries. Tills is not
his laii2uai!0. Hut ho savs public institu
tions aro coiitrollahlo by tho legislaturo.
This lie states as a matter of course? as
incontrovertible n an axiom In mathe
matics. Now railroads aro hold by the
courts, including our own supremo court, !
to bo public institutions. How then "Iocs
thu nuc stamp All public institution!
I... .1.,. !.. I I. 11.11 i
nru luiurtiiiiiiM" u tun irjj'n.uiw. linn
roads ore controllablu by the legislature.
Whoro is the ccapo from this conclii'Ion9
Tho incorporating act tho charter can
neithor givo nor provont this control.
This right to control is an Inherent at
tributo of sovereignty. In the case of
East Hartford vs. Hartford hridgo com
pany, tho supremo court of tho I'nlted
States say: "Ono of tho highest attributes
and dtilios of a legislaturo is to roij.ul.Hto
public manors with all public hodios, no
loss than tho community, from timo to
time, in thu manner which the public wel
fare msy appear to demand. It can
neither devolve theso duties permanently
on other public bodlo), nor permanently
suspend nor abandon tnem llselt without
being usually rrgardoii RH unfaithful, and,
indeed, attempting what is wholly tmyond
its constitutional competency." 10 How
ard. r.3l )
And in tbo legal tender cases tho samo
court sny "As In a stato of civil society,
property ol a citizen oraubjoct, is owner
ship, subject to tho lawful Demands of tho
sovereign: so contracts must be under
stood as made in loferoncn tn tho possible
exercise ot tho rightful authority ol the
government, and no obligation of a con
tract can extend to the dofeat of legitimate
government authority." (12 Wallace OGI )
Since tlie highest judicial tribunal of the
nation 1ms declared that the common car
rier "is in the exerclso of a sort of public
olllce, ' that railroads "aro public high
ways," and "they havo always been gov
ernmental affairs," that public institutions
are of courso "controllable by tho legis
lature "ean neither devolve theae duties
permanently on othor public bodies, nor
puimanently suspend nor abandon them
itself,' and that "no obligation of a con
tract can extend to the defeat of legitimate
government authority," it would seem
to louow mat tno as
sumed power of a legislaturo to barter
uWay forever to corporations its govern
mental functions must bo abandoned.
Thero i no precedent that controls this
question Tbo much talked about nnd lit
tle. t understood Dartmouth collegn case
doc's not, ft' wo havo seen, decide it against
tbe peoplo. Dartmouth college was
purely a private institution, Just as much
so as tho Wesloyan University at Bloom
lngton while railroads are tho groat pub
lic thoroughfares o' tho state. This ques
tion, then, can bo finally settled only in
accordance with sound reason and upon
principle. "When and whero did tho peo
plo of thn state authori.o their legislature,
their trustooof ihe political power of tho
stato, to cut looe and send adrift, beyond
their ultimate control, all the great public
highwaysof tho statu ' When tho peoplo,
in their constitution, declared that ''tho
legislative authority of this stato shall ho
vested in ft general assombly" did thoy
authorize the genoral assembly to sell nut
any portion ol their governmental func
tions? Can legislative authority thu
vested In tho general nssombly hedivested,
from timo to timo, piecemeal, until nil tho
legislative powers of tho state aro gone'
As tho cry of tho divinn right of
knights did not provont tho declaration
anil establishment of our Indopodence,
so the cry of vested rights of corporations
In governmental all'airs will not provont
tho legislative control of tho public high
wrm of tho state, until it is first decided
that mo legislature has thn constitutional
competency to divert a succeeding legisla
ture of its "legitimate government auth
ority over tho public institutions of the
stato. The e.tnblishmcnt by the Judicial
decisions of such omnipotent power In a
transient logiidr.turo to abdicato and bind
people, would be, not inoroly Inconsistent
with republican Institutions, but utter! v
I i"iumr tuu nmermnoniBi power OI tno
suuverMvo ot tuat underlying and all fut
porting principle of free government, th
inherent sovereignty of tho people over
all "governmental aflalrs,"
Tho more we ntatnlno tbo fundamental
principles of tho declaration and of tho
political structura oreeted on this westorn
continent, the moro we are compelled to
admire the wisdom of tho fathers. Thcv
built for tho ages. The foundation stones
are civil and political .inulity, ,ecurltv of
1 fo, liberty nd happii.oss, soverclcntvof
tho peoplo. They only .ocret of tnnr
political wisdom was a sound moral p,n.
mphy. The same princ'p'c of right ara
equally essential to the founding and tho
perpotulty of a freo and Just government
The linn-observance of this eternal prlni
riple of right with regard to slavery cost
nesrly thn life of tho nation.
Tho whole science of government and
law and liberty may no resoivea in to tbe
elencoof rights. And the ultimate test
of right Is tho concurrent approval nf
reason and conscience. Tho secret of thH
irresistible power of public opinion con
lists In the fact that it Is tho people's con.
vi:t!on of right. And'I appeal to history
for fonilrmatlos of tho esivrtloo that as
general rule tho Instincts of Justlco the
mental sontlmontsof the people nave boon
truer than thoso ol tholr rulers as manl
foitod by acts. Id this historical fact lies'
my raith In tho progress of tho human
race. Whllo It is tho tendoncy of those
in powor to vindicate their action by fall
ing back upon tbe authority ol bad usngos,
tho people aro always Impatient of what
over outrages their moral sense, and can
bo appeased only by tho ovorthrow of
usurped power wherever it Is manifested.
And every violation of right and justice Is
A right to do wrong, whether claimed
by the many or the few, Is a contradiction
in terms and in morals, and cannot among
a frco and enlightened people bo made a
prmanent and irrevokable rule of
civil conduct. Every constitutional
provision, every legislative enactment,
every Judicial decision, every custom and
usage, must sooner or lat r be measured
by the rule of absolute right and justice.
