AN IMPORTANT DECISION.
The Right to Bring Suit Against
An important decision ha) been ren
dered by United States Circuit Judge
Sawyer in the case of the Souttiern
Pacific Railroad Company vs. The
United States. By the decision the
demurrer of the United States Attorney
is overruled, and the proposition is laid
down that the United States can be sued
by a subject. The decision states that
thin is a petition in equity to this Court
under the Act of Congress of March ;;,
1887, entitled "An Act to provide for the
bringing of suits against the Government
of the United States," setting up a claim
to a tract of land against the United
States, and asking that its title to the
land be established in the petition by the
decree _of this Court. The lands des
cribed in the petition are odd numbered
sections lying in the limits of the lands
granted to the Southern Pacific Railroad
Company by Act of Congress, approved
July 17, 1886. The facts alleged, if true,
show that the lands were subject to the
grant, and that the petitioner has per
formed all the necessary conditions. Its
right to a patent is shown, yet the proper
officers refuse to issue a patent as re
quired by law. The petitioner prays
that it may be adjudged entitled to a
patent, and that it may have such further
relief as may be agreeable to equity.
The United States demurs to the peti
tion on the ground that tbe Court has no
jurisdiction in such a suit, and that the
United States cannot be sned in such a
case. It is contended that the "claims"
provided for in the act are legal, and
that there is no jurisdiction in the cases
in equity. Again it is contended tbat
the word "claim" is used in this act in a
restrictive sense, and extends only to
claims for money and does not embrace
claims of title to lands as against the
The Supreme Conrt held that the prior
acts conferring jurisdiction on the Court
of Claims do not embrace cases of equity
jurisdiction. But the several acts have
been amended from time to time and the
jnrisdiction extended until the act of
March 3, 1887, was passed. This act
provides, so far as applicable to the case
in hand, "that the Court of Claims shall
have jurisdiction to hear .... all claims
founded upon the Constitution or any
laws of Congress .... or upon any
contract, express or implied, with the
Government of the United States . . I
. in respect of which claims the party
would be entitled to redress against the
United States, either in a court of law,
equity or admiralty, if the United States
The Court then says:
In this case the claim is founded on a statute
of the United States and upon a statutory con
tract, and the value of the matter in dispute
exceeds ,111,000 aud is less than $10,000. If
the matters alleged, then, constitute a claim,
within tho meaning of that term, as used in
the statute, the United States are suable there
on in this Court, and the Court has jurisdiction
over it, concurrent with the Court of Claims
After a careful consideration of the matter, I
am satisfied tha: they do constitute a claim
within the meaning of the act. The statute Is
remedial, anil remedial statutes are to be liber
ally construed. The act is in accordance with
the spirit of the age. According to the author
ities cited, even England is in advance of tbe
United States in waiving its privilege not to be
sued in its courts by a subject.
The word "claim" is very broad aud compre
hensive in its signification—quite as compre
hensive as any of its synonyms demand—pre
tension, right, privilege, title. That the con
struction is not to be limited to money demands
is evideut from other expressions in the act, as
iv Section 5, wherein the contents of the peti
tiona re prescribed. It requires taat the peti
tioner "shall set forth the nature of his claim
and a succinct statement of the facts upon
which tbe claim is based, the money and other
things claimed, • * and praying the Court
for a judgment or decree upon the facts and the
law." Section 6: " The plaintiff shall not have
judgment or decree for his claim * * unless,"
etc, Section 7: "If the suit be In equity or
admiralty, the Court shall proceed In tbe same
according to the rules of such courts." Section
12: "When any claim or matter pending in
any of the executive departments which
involves controverted questions of fact or
law," the head of the department may
refer them to tho Court of Claims. There are
many "claims," or "matters," betides many de
mands "peudlDg" in the various departments.
Indeed, mouey demands, except, perhaps, in
the Treasury Deparsment, constitute bnt a
small fraction of the "claims" or "matters"
pending in the executive departments. Yet the
statute says: "Any claim or matter pending in
any of the executive departments." As a gen
eral proposition, a bill in equity is rarely filed
merely to establish a money demand, without
other relief. The amount of money recovered
Is very seldom, if ever, the sole matter covered
by a decree. Yet judgments and decrees,writs
of error and appeals form the subject of many
of tho provisions of the Act, clearly indi
cating, not only tbat equltible jurisdiction
is conferred, bat that the claims or mat
ters in controversy are not limited to
mere money demands. A case strictly
analogous (Jones t«. The United States, 35
Fed. R., C3l)was decided by Deady, District
Judge, in the Circuit Court in the District of
Oregon in July last, in which he discussed this
point with great fullness and his usual ability,
and in which he held that the word "claim," as
used in the statute. Included a claim to land,
and upheld the jurisdiction ol tbe Court. I
can add nothing more to what he said iv tbat
case, and I content myself with referring to
the decision aud expressing my concurrence in
the views stated by him upon the point.
The demurrer must be overruled with leave
to answer, and It is so ordered.
The natural effect of this decision is
that a judgment of the proper court de
ciding a party to be entitled to a patent
by reason of compliance with the laws
of the United States, is equivalent to the
patent itself. There are many persons
who have bought railroad lands, but
who, on account of the dilatbriness of
the Land Department at Washington,
bave been waiting for years for their
patents. Under this decision the claim
can be proved up in a Court of Records,
and judgment obtained, which, being
equivalent to a patent, will enable such
holders as require to borrow money
upon the land to do so.

Disarming an Unseen Foe.
"This was sometime a, paradox," as Hamlet
says. Since, however, the people of America
and other lands have been enabled to pit Hos
tetter's Stomach Bitters against that unseen
foe, malaria, it ia no longer a paradox, but an
easy possibility. Wherever malaria evolves its
misty venom to poison the air, and decaying
unwholesome vegetation impregnates the
water, there, in the very stronghold of miasma,
is the auxiliary potent to disarm the foe and
assure efficient protection. Fever and ague,
bilious remittent, dumb ague and ague cake,
no matter how tenaciously tbey have fastened
their clutch on the system, are first forced to re
lax their grasp and eventually to abandon it
altogether. But it is its preventive force that
should obiefiy recommend the Bitters to per
sons dwelling in malaria-cursed localities, for
it is a certain buckler of defense agaimt which
the enemy is powerless. Cures, likewise, dys
