STATE OF OHIO V. LAKE SHORE &
M. S. R. CO.
Supreme Court of the United States
February 20. 1899.
THE OHIO STATUTE REQUIRING A
RAILROAD COMPANY TO STOP
ITS TRAINS AT ALL STATIONS
CONTAINING OVER 3.000 INHABI?
TANTS IS NOT A REGULATION
OF . INTERSTATE COMMERCE
AND IS VALID.
This was an action brought by the
State of Ohio against the railroad com?
pany to recover a penalty fixed by a
jaw of that State for the failure of the
company to stop Its trains to receive
and let oft passengers at West Cleve?
land, a station containing over 3,000
Inhabitants. There was a judgment
against the cotnyuny for the penalty
And It appealed
The court says:
The trial court found, as a conclusion
Of "law, that within the meaning of the
Constitution of the United Slates the
statute of Ohio was not a regulation of
commerce among the States, and was
valid until Congreea acted upon the
teubject. This general view wan af?
firmed by the Circuit Court of Cuya
?hoga county, and by the Supreme Court
of Ohio.
The plaintiff in error contends that,
as the power to regulate Interstate com?
merce Is vested In Congress, ihc stat?
ute of Ohio in its application to trains
engaged In such commerce is directly
repugnant to the Constitution of the
United StatcB. *
In support of this contention It in
elfits that an Interstate railroad car?
rier has the right lo slart Its train at
any point In one State, and pass Into
and through another State without
taking up or netting down passengers
within the limits of the latter State.
As applied to the present case, that
contention means that the defendant
company, although an Ohio corporation,
deriving nil Its franchises and privi?
leges from that Stale, may, If it so
wills, deprive the people along its line
In Ohio of the benefits of Interstate
communication by lbs railroad; in short,
that the company, If it saw lit to do so,
could, beyond the power of Ohio to pre?
vent It, refuse to stop within thai
State trains that started from points
beyond It? limits, or even trains [Hart?
ing In Ohio destined to places in other
States.
It is insisted by counsel * ? that
the police powers of the States, where
exerted with reference to manors more
or less connected with interstate com?
merce, are restricted In their exercise,
eo>'-fnr as the national constitution is
concerned, to regulations pertaining to
the health, morals, or safety of the
public, and di not embrace regulations
designed merely lo promote the PUB?
LIC CONVENIENCE.
This Is on erroneous view of the ad?
judications of this court. There are
numerous decisions of this court to the
effect that the State, i may legislate
With reference simply to the public con?
venience, subject, of course, tn the con?
dition that such legislation be not in?
consistent with tho national constitu?
tion, nor with any act of Congress
passed In pursuance of that Instrument,
nor in derogation of any right granted
or secured by it.
Wo perceive in the legislation of Ohio
no basis for the contention that the
State has invaded the domain of na?
tional authority or Impaired any right
secured by the national constitution.
In the recent case of Jones v. Brim, 16;"
V. S. 180. it was adjudged that em?
braced within tiie police powers of a
State wns tho establishment, main?
tenance and control of public highways,
and that under such powers ri asonablt
regulations incident to tho right to
establish and maintain such highways
could be established by the State. And
the State of Ohio by the statute in.
question has done nothing mire than
to so regulate the us? of a public high?
way established and maintained under
its authority as will reasonably pro?
mote the subita convenience, it has
not unreasonably obstructed the free?
dom of commerce among tho State:..
< Its regulations apply equally to domes?
tic and Interstate railroads. Its statute
is not directed against Interstate com?
merce, but only incidentally affects it.
It has only forbidden one of its own
corporations from discriminating un?
justly against a large part Of the pub?
lic, for whose convenience that cor?
poration was created and invested with
authority to maintain a public highway
within tho limits of the State. Affirmed.
OLMSTEAD V. LATIMER.
Court of Appeals of New York.
AN EXTENSION OF TIME FOR TUE
PAYMENT OF A BOND FOR NO
CONSIDERATION, EXCEPT AN
AGREEMENT TO PAY AT THE
EXPIRATION OF THE TIME, IS
VOID FOR WANT OF CONSIDER?
ATION, AND WILL NOT DIS?
CHARGE THE SURETIES ON THE
BOND.
The point decided sufficiently appears
from the Court's opinion.
We have made it a part of our business
methods for over 35 years to represent
things Just as we think they are. For
moro than 26 years we have claimed that
the G. O. Taylor Whiskies are made, bot?
tled and svld pure. We have that amount
of confidence In our output to assert that
Whether you nnd G. O. Taylor Whiskies
In any town or city between Eastport, Me.
and Leadvllle. Col., you will find the con?
tents of each bottle to be a counterpart of
another. This whiskey was originally
bottled In 1S73 for the purpose of giving
physicians a medicinal stimulant the:
could bo prtscribed for uso in tha stak
room with full At Ith In its purity, and
that when prescribed the rrsult attendant
with Its medicinal use would never bo
found disappointing. Wo have In cur
possession hundreds of testimonials from
physicians and shall take pleasure In
mailing to anyone, on request, a combina?
tion of op'nfor.3 that appear to have been
written by people not afraid eo express
nn opinion, anil that seem to be positive
that the G. O. Taylor Whiskies have been
of real benefit to their patients. Licensed
dealers In moat any part of tho country
will supply you with "G. O. T." If you
want St, insist on having it in a sealed
bottle with our firm name signature on
facer and neck label.
CHESTER H. GRAVES & SONS.
For aale at White Bros. Norfolk, Va.,
Frown's Hotel, Portsmouth, Va.
The Court says:
Assuming that the effect of the con?
veyance, and that which subsequently
happened, was to change the obliga?
tion of the defendants other than Fred?
erick towards the plaintiff from that
of principals to that of sureties, we
come to the question whether the agree?
ment to extend the time of payment
was invalid for want of consideration.
In the case of Kellogg v. Olmstead. 25
N. Y., 189. the action Was on a promis?
sory note by the transferree of the
payee. It was held that an agreement
by a creditor to postpone payment of a
debt until a fubure day certain, without
other or further consideration than
the agreement of the debtor to pay
the debt, with Interest. Is void for want
of consideration. In Parmelee v.
Thompson, 43 N. Y.. r.S. the trial Judge
held that there was no' valid agree?
ment to extend the time of payment.
The Judgment was affirmed In this
court, the opinion being written by
Judge Allen. In which he 6ald: It Is
competent for the parties by a parol
agreement to enlarge tho time of per?
formance of a simple contract ? ? ?
but a promise to extend the time of
payment, unless founded on a good
consideration. Is void. A payment of
a part of a debt, or the Interest nl
ready accrued, or a promise to pay In?
terest for the future I? not a sufficient
consideration to support such promise.
In Powers V. Sllbers'.eln. 108 N. Y..
1C), In the course of the opinion, the
court cited Lowman v. Ya'.es. upon the
proposition that a mere Indulgence by
a creditor of the principal debtor will
not discharge a surety, and that the
agreement.for an extension, made with?
out the consent of the surety, must
be upon a valuable consideration, such
as will preclude the creditor from en?
forcing the debt against the principal.

Hon. J. R. Lamar, of Augusta. Ga..
president and listening to an address
by Hon. W. L. Wilson, president of the

President Wilson took as his sub?
ject the Increasing difficulties of Dem?

veloped and are developing in the ex
pcrlence of the American people. The
development since the days of the Fed?
eral adoption of the constitution and
the change in conditions that hive
come with the growth of the country
were pointed out, these changed con?
ditions being new problems that must
be met and the duties of the legal pro?

to a great extent the other two co-or?
dinate branches of tho e ivernment were
pointed out. Mr. Wilson led tip to the

SECOND QUARTER'S FAILURES
SMALLEST EVER KNOWN.
(By Telegraph to VlrgtnianrPilot.)
New York. July 7.?R. O. Dun & Co.'s
Weekly Review of Trade will say to?
morrow :
Failures for the first half of 1S99.
with banking ami financial Included as
in all other accounts published, were;
4,ssi. with liabilities or $40.661.661. Com?
mercial failures were 4.$53, with liabili?
ties of $42,062.933, of which H6.723.3531
were manufacturing and $23.011,364 were
trailing.
In Hi - second quarter failures- were
the smallest ever reported in that quar-|
tor of twenty-five years, for which
quarterly reports have been made by
this agency. The average per failure?
$7,165?Is the smallest ever known In
any quarter: the average per firm In
business $12.00, and the t.uio of default?
ed liabilities to solvent exchange 62
cents per $1.000. are both the smallest
ever known in any quarter. In tea out
of fourteen branches Of manufacturing I
failures were smaller than in the same!
quarter of (our of tho previous five
years, and in 13 out of II trading
branches. The large failures ror $lon.
000 or more were only two In trading
for J221.0SS less than a tenth of ihe
Min lest previous year and only fifteen
in all for $2.417.ISO, from a fifth to a
tenth of*previous years?. The decrease
in small failures is worth especial
study.
Wiic.it declined three-eighths of a
cent, exports being but 2,250,021 bushels
for the week, flour Included, against 2.
643.139 bushels last year, for bath
coasts, althoiight Western receipts were
3.S61.523 bushels, against 61S.422 bushels
last year.
If the farmers actually carried over
65,000,000 bush.-ls. or more, n year, aflcr
$l.2?i to $'.00 per bushel had been paid
at Chicago for some months, as one
runner Journal estimates, they need the
education which they are netting, but
the claim still entirety fails to account
for their liberal spilling this year at
lower prices. Contradictory guesses and
hopes continue, but this year is very
hard on predictions.
Corn exports are twice last year's.
2.37*.?'S bushels, ngrilnst 1.20S.255 last
year for the week, and the price de?
clined u quarter. Tho cotton movement
still Indicates u greater surplus than
was expei ted, but disastrous Hoods in
Texas caused a sixteenth advance,
which dispatches fr m that quarter do
not seem to warrant. The loss, much
or lit'!.-, would not materially affect a
year's business.
Scarcity and high prices of Iron and
Its products enn n>> longer be reckoned
evidence of good limes, fn the Sh n
ango Valley six furnaces have been
stopped by a strike f r 20 per cent, more
wages, and minor strikes arc reported
a: various iron works, tho tin plate
strike being yet unsettled. Now orders
reported continue large, being evidently
reported week after w< eh at d ; r nt
cities because not taken, but new orders
accumulated do not equal the output of
tho works.
Predictions of groat scarcity of pig
iron have lifted the price still further
to 01.2 per cent, of the average January.
1887, but several more furnaces are H??
ing Into operation, and the Illinois
Steel Company has contracted for oth
I ers or the larg? st cap city.
Textile manufactures are doing well
and in woolen goods prices tend upward
with a consldi rably heiter demand, but
