An Interesting Point lecided by the Na
tional Supreme ConrU
Washington, March 28. An interesting
question of constitutional law was decided
by the United States supreme court yester
day in the case of the Monongahela Navi
gation company against the United States.
The company, under charter from the
state an at the invitation of the general
government, built a dam to aid the navi
gation of the Mouongabela, being given
the right to charge tolls to shippers.
Reversed the . Lower Conrt'a Decision.
Subsequently congress, in order to free
navigation from tolls, provided for the
purchase and condemnation of the lock
and dam. but expressly provided that pay
ment should not be made for the franchise
to charge tolls. The question involved in
this case was whether compensation for
the franchise must, under the constitution,
be paid in advance of acquisition of the
property. 1 h9 lower court decided against
the company and this court reverses that
decision and holds that the franchise is
property which must be paid for by the
government at its just value.
