THE RAILROAD TAX CASEs.
The Supreme Court of the Uited Stata
Cuts the Matter Short by Declaring
that it has no Jurisdiction over
[special to the News Courier.]
WAsHINGTON, January 12.-Durir
the argu menit of the South Carolir
cases in the Supreme Court to-da
Chief Justice Fuller stopped the cour
sel for the railroads with the announc
ment that the Court has no jurisdictio
in the case. This was a great surpris
to the array of counsel present repri
senting the railroads and the State ai
thorities, and the decision of the Coul
will probably cause the Tillmanites 1
rejoice, for it is a justilication to a ce
tain extent of their methodsof taxatioi
The Chief Justice stated, hioweve
that the. Court was not prepared to' g
into- the merits of the case, but wt
convinced that the Court has nojuri
diction, and therefore further argi
ment would be unnecessary. TFl
sudden termination of the argumen
after the counsel had been detai
here since last Friday, occasioned eor
siderable disappointment, especiall
among the railroad men.
Mr. Lord opened the argument C
behalf of the State authorities, an
upon the conclusion of hisTemarks IM
Smith proceeded to present the argt
ment for the railroads. Immediatel
certain members of the Court plied M
Smith with questions, all of whic
seemed to indicate~ that the Coo
doubted its jurisdiction to deal wit
the question involved. After 1i
Smith finished his argumen't Mr. Fit
simmonsalso representing the railroad
began to supplement and reinforce ti
statements made by Mr. Smith. In ti
midst of this argument the (Chil
Justiceheld a whispered consultatic
with his Associates and then annlounce
that the Court did not care to hei
further argument, as it was' clearly
the opinion that it had no jurisdictic
to consider the Case.
Mr.Barron was to have followed M
Fitzsimmons on behalf of the railroad
and then Speaker Jones was to ha'
made the cling argument for t.i
State. The action of the Court to-day
practically reverses the decision of the
o Court below, which was in favor of the
" railroads. Those who are familiar witb
d the practice of the Supreme Court say1
k that the announcement of the Chief
Justice that the refusal to hear further
r argument without passing upon the
merits of the case cuts but little figure
in the proceedings. The failure of the
Court to take jurisdiction in itself vir
tually decides the case in favor of the
State authorities. R. M. L.
TILLMAN IS TICKLED.
[Special to News and Courier.]
COLUMBIA, January 13.-There was
e I considerable surprise and great rejoicing
e in the State House this morning over
the announcement in The News and
Courier that the United States Supreme
Court had thrown out the famous rail
d,road tax cases. The first news of the
Court's position came through The
News and Courier and was a welcome
New Year's gift to the mainstays of the
Administration. Governor Tillman
e read a congratulatory telegram to the
d newspaper "boys" and was as happy as
be has been in months. When asked
what he thought about the present
outlook he replied that it was hardly
v any use for the railroads to kick after
L their heads had been cut off. He hardly
had any idea that there would be any
t further litigation about the matter, and
V thought that the railroads wou!d now
- gracefully submit to the inevitable.
a TOWNSEND NOT SO SANGUINE.
r -Attorney General Townsend was
brim full of good humor and expressed
g his delight at the decision, although he
e did not yet exactly know what bearing
e the forthcoming decision would have
a on the other eases. Major Townsend
said that the first news he had of the
matter was through the columns of
t The News and Courier. He did not
exactly know what questions of juris
diction would be decided. The result
of the pending cases would depend he
thought entirely on the text of the
fl A RAILROAD MAN'S VIEW.
- Mr. J. T. Barron, general counsel of
d the Atlantic Coast Line, who was in
Washington attending the hearing,
d said that it was mere guess work to say
s whether the forthcoming decision
o would settle the cases or not. The deci
sion may only be upon the question of
jurisdiction in the two cases presented.
It is expected here that the decision in
a the case will be announced la the next
- few days.
WHAT THE SUPREME COURT DECIDED.
-ONLY THE QUESTION O JURIS
-DICTION-THE RAIL ROAD
CASES YET OPEN ,BUT
[The News and Courier.]
The termination of the rail road tax
cases in the United States supreme
court on Thursday was not wholly un
e expected. The cases were brought by
. the rail roads about a year ago, in the
United States circuit court for this
State, and went to bhe supreme court
t on appeal.
. The rail roads contested the right of
e the State to tax them in accordance
with the arbitrary and excessive valua
tions made by the State rail road board
e of equalization. The circuit court of the
? United States decided in favor of the
e rail roads.
The State selected two of the cases de
s cided by the circuit court, and appealed
to the supreme court, on the ground that
r the circuit court had no jurisdiction in
the cases, because in neither of them'
was the disputed tax in any county in
excess of $2 000, and that the circuit
i court of the United States could not
a take jurisdiction unless,the excess tax
g in dispute in each county exceeded the
sum of $.2000. TEhe main stress of the
argument for the State in the sapreme
C court was on this jurisdictional point,
and the argument of counsel in opposi
ton was directed to it.
After the counsel for the State had
4 made their argument and the counsel
for the rail roatIs had also argued, the
-chief justice announced that the court
did not care to hear any further argu
Sment from the counsel for the State,
from which the inference is drawn that
-the court took the view that the circuit
court below had no jurisdiction, inas
much as the tax. in dispute did not ex
eeed in any case the sum of $2.000O, and
it is supposed that the decision of the.
a supreme court will be in accordance
.with this view. -
It Till be seen, therefore, that the de
cion is on the purely,technical ques
tion as to the jurisdiction of the United
.States circuit court, and in no manner
touches the question really at issue be
tween the State and rail roads, and
r does not affect the other rail road cases
Sin which the 'dispute'd tax exceeded
.t $2,000, and in which no appeal has
The deision settles no question of
law and no principle of justice the
merits of the case not having been dis
a cussed or adjudicated. So long as the
s Siate can make the difference between
e its assessment of rail road property in
a county and the assessment whbich the
law and the constitution permit it to
'make less than $2,000, there will be no
d opportunity to haverbhe wrong righted
gin the courts of the United States.

[Special to News and Courier. s3
WASHINGTON, January 13.-Senator 1
Irby expects td''leave here to-morrow cc
nigbt for New York. He is to be accom- T
panied by Senator Vilas. and it is un- ti
derstood they have an appointment to of
call upon Mr. Cleveland together. The fa
fact that Senator Vilas is the most in- w
fluential friend Mr. Cleveland has in in
the Senate gives additional signficance at
to the visitation of Senator Irby. al
Neither of the Senators named is in- fe
clitred to talk about the proposed trip ai
to New York further than to say they dt
are going to New York for a few days in
and together, and to call on and pay
their respects to Mr. Cleveland.
It is quite probable thatSenator Irby
will haue a free conversation with Mr.
Cleveland about the political situation. uI
in South Carolina from a Tillman ti
standpoint, and he will probably en- li
deny ir to explain why the south Caro- ti
lina delegation opposed his (Cleve- h<
land's) nomination at Chicago and N
then turned around and gave the T.
Democratic ticket cordial support. eC
[It is not correct to say that the n'
South Carolina delegation to Chicago F
after the failure of their efforts to defeat se
Mr. Cleveland and their return to el
South Carolina "cordially" supported a
Mr. Cleveland. Neither the Tillman m
leaders nor the Tillman following "cor- eC
dially" supported Mr. Cleveland. They bi
voted for him, but they redeclared their b]
allegiance to the Ocala platform for at
opposition to which they had de- b
nounced Mr. Cleveland and showed ti
in everyway possible that his nomina- 0
tion was distasteful to them.-Ed. The fe
N. and C.] b
Those w4o have, conversed with Mr. n
Cleveland since his election say he
does not propose to do anything that 9(
will encourage factional fighting with- ti
in the ranks of the Democratic party. fi
He will, of course, remember his 01
friends who were loyal to him first, s
last and all the time, and he will also E
give fair recognition to that element in tl
his party that opposed his nomination. q
One of his closest friends in the House t4
said to-day : "Mr. Cleveland will en
deavor to conduct his administration 0
in the Interest of the entire Democratic J
party without regard to factions. He t
can afford to be magnanimous without ai
deserting his tried and true friends." tr
The result of Senator Irby's visit will b
be watched with peculiar interest by b
South Carolinians, who fully under- of
stand the position. he occupied prior to "
the Nominating Convention. He prob- F
ably realizes that to be a Democratic b4
Senator and exercise any influence for -
the good of his State he must put be
hind him whatever differences he may
have with his political enemies at 1
home. Local factional controversies j
cut no figure in national politics at
Senator Irby during the present ses
son has steadfastly maintained that
he- does not expect to be the sole dis
penser of' the Federal patronage for
South Carolina during the coming Ad
ministration. All he seeks is a fair
and equitable distribution of the fruits
of victory among the Democrats of his
State without regard to their local
affiliations. He does not expect his R
wing of the party to get the lion's
share, nor does he expect the Anti-Till'
manites to have a monopoly of the
offices at the disposal of Mr. Cleveland.

any consideraition at the hands of the'

There is considerable speculation -
among the South Carolina colony, to s
whom the proposed visit is known, as
to what is its object.
The fact Is that the senators are to
call on President-elect Cleveland, who ji
has named Tuesday next as the day
for the interview.
It is very probable,that there will be
some news' of rather more than ordi

HEMPHILL HEADS OFF IRBY. C
[Special to News and Courier.] '
WASHINGTON, January 16.-Repre- o
sentative John J. Hemphill has been ~
to New York to talk over the political ~
situation in South Carolina with Mr.
Cleveland. He went last Friday by q
appointment with Ex-Governor Hugh. '
Thompson, and they called upon the a
President-elect at his office in the MillsP
Mr. Hemphill did not know any- t
thing of Senator's Irby's contemplated CJ
visit to Mr. Cleveland when he started
for New York, but, as it turned out,
the former was several days ahead of
the Senator and probably told Mr. '
Cleveland all that was worth -knowing
so far as South Carolina is concerned.
In referring to his visit Mr. Hemphill
says he had more than an hour's con
versation with Mr. Cleveland, and
during that time the political situation
in South Carolina was.freely discussed.F
Mr. Cleveland displayed a keen interest
in the affairs, of the State, as he prob
ably remembired the able assistance he
received from South Carolinians during
his first Administration. He was not]
disposed to commit himself with regardb
to t.e dis'tribution -of patronage in the b
State, further t han to Qay that he pro- a
posed to see to it that|the best available "
men are chosen for the Federal offices.. s
He said he proposed to administer the ~
affairs of the Governmwent for the bene-A
fit ofthe whole'people, and wudnot
undertake to encourage factional con-F
troversies within the ranks of the De- C
mocratic party. He expressed himself
quite freely against Ocalaismo, and in-q
timnated that he knew who his truen
friends are in South Carolina. a
The conversation was exceedingly P
agreeable, and much was said - that tn
cannot be properly, reported at this t
time. Mr. Hemiphill reached tne con
elusion that Mr. Cleveland fully under- P
stands the situation in South Carolina,
and he will not allow himself to be de
ceived by false friends. R. M. L.
