It, is not. nt ni ?ij now to consider the prross
Injustice of "riving to the City of New-York the
entire incn,,- from this property while the pro

that income away from the private owner. Th.
Constitution declares timi rn a ate property shall

In the case of Bloodgnod vs. thc Mohawk and
Hudson River I.ailroad Company, in 1? Wendell,
reported at page h. ivhieh waa a leading case upon
thc quegtion of whether railroad co ni pu ni es could

judged by a lar^e vote of the Court of Error,
that the defendants irer. Bot authorised to take
and appropriate th. idaintilPs land to their use
for the purpose of milking ii railway thereon, until

THE }, Eir-JERSET JOHN SMITHS AROUSED.
RMUlaT OF A SUfPU INQCIRY BY A MORKI8
Morristown, N. J., March 3.?Mwgri by on te a
promlnnt nembet of the Jiorrls Coonty bar. One of
his ellen's v/m an honest old totlow, Joh'i l-rnlth,
who ow ucl a farm up near Dover, In Dover Town
uhlp. Counsellor Lyon found lt necessary to search
tho title of Mr. Smith to the farm on which tho tilter
had lived fm- sumo years with his family. The lawyer
searched tho reeords In th. Morris County Court Hoon
for sixty years tack, and found that Mr. bm"h's title
waa all right. Ho found tho record of s stuail moit
gagu on Um farm, but ho had tern told of Its ex?
istence by Mr. Smith. The Judgment record of tho
Circuit Court of the county showed there were no
Judgments against Mr. Smith. In order to com?
plete tho scarh, CeUBSOOor Lyon wrote to tho clerk
of the Bupnms Court of tho State at Trenton, asking
him to have a search made of the rcords of his oflice
and send him a list of all tho Judgments recorded
against John Smith.
In about a week Counsellor Lyon received a bulky
document (nm the clerk of tho 8'ipt.>me Court. It
was the result of the search ho asked for In his lettora
The size of tho document almost took the lawyer's
breath away. It showed that John Smith had Judg?
ments enough recorded In the otllee of tho Supremo
Court to offset the valuo of half of tho farm? of Morris
County. Mr. Lyon at once set to work to unravel
the ca-se- Ho found that there were mauy John
Smiths In >ew-Jorsey.In fact tbey woro to bo
bond from tho rock-ribbed farra of I_nquarry
Tuwnshlp, In Warren County, down to the white
sands ol Cupe May. Mr. Lyon wrote to all t!;0
lawyers who had secured Judgments and from Ibolr
repliers he made out a complete record of them. One
nt tho curious features of tho case waa that fully one
half of the Judgment, had teen paid In full but had
not been cancelled of record. Others were uuder
rolne Kettl?*ment. The sworn statoments of a lot of
awyers showed that none of the Judgments recorded

which denied the right of the Niagara Falls and WhlrU

I>_ Veaux Collego, may have the effect of pre.'eutlng

There have boen a gool many drawbacks to building
the road, the ownen of the "elevators'' ohJOOttag to
lt bar au-r. they thought lt would dostroy tho patronaga
which they would enjoy, -'or Instance, a person could
lake a train at tho State reservation and ride tho
entire length ot tho gorge, for a fare perhaps no more
than the fee now oo.le.-ted at eaa h elevator, where
only a limited view can be obtained of tho scenery. A
trip on the railroad would give a bettor id.ia of tho
gorge to spectators In quicker time than can now be
obtained bv anandlug a whole day and 410 to 915 on
elevators, naokmen aud other tout-res of cost to
strangers at tho falls. The main trouble ba* been to
get tho right of way. Tlie guestlop of euiluei.t domain
*on.es In and lt has beeu held that the road, being
built for pleasure and not for commerce, cannot en?
force the condemnation of land by commission, m
o: ld be done by a regular railroad. The sum likely

right of way would be ao great that li would quench
