1 .\tPKHFKCTION S IX I'KTITIO.V
Negroes Sought Injunction to Ke
strain Railroads From Enforcing
| Statute, Wliich Permitted Them to
| Furnish Cars Only to Whites.
?:
| WASHINGTON*. November 30.?A ma
jority. of the Supreme Court to-day
i joined In an opinion that the Oklahoma
j .llni 'Crow" law proviso permitting
.'.railroads to furnish sleeping, dining
I and clmir car accommodations only to
the. white racfl was unconstitutional,
but because 'of Imperfections In the
petition 011 which tho ease reached
the courts, they-did not so decree.
The case was one In which five ne
groes, claiming the entire law uncon
stitutional, sought an injunction to
restrain five railroads in Oklahoma
froni enforcing it. The Oklahoma Fed
eral courts dismissed the petition, hold
ing the law .constitutional. The mn
jjorlty of the court affirmed the dis
missal to-day'because the negrora had
; not shown they had applied to the
railroads for-accommodation under the
law, or that the railroads had notified
them that they would be refused cer
tain accommodation^. The majority,
through Justice Hughes, elated, how
ever. that they could not agree with tho
lower court that the proviso as to
sleeping, dining ind chair carg was
constitutional. A minority?Chief Jus
tice White and Justices Holmes, Lamar
ai)d McKeynolds?concurred merely In
the order of affirmance, but expressed
no views on the constitutional ques
tion.
In the opinion by the majority, Jus
tice Hughes stated that previous de
cisions that laws for separate eoaches'
. for the two races were constitutional
were no*, to be questioned. He then
set forth'the reasons for tho opinion
that the lower court was wrong in
holding the proviso constitutional.
"The- reasoning is," said he; "that
there may not be enough persons of i
African descent seeking those accom
modations 10 warrant the outlay in I
providing thpni. This argument, with J
respect to .the value of tho. traffic, I
seems to be without merit. It makes ;
the constitutional right depend upon ;
tho number of persons who may ho
discriminated against, whereas the es
sence of the constitutional right is
that it is a personal one. It is the
Individual who Is entitled to the equal
protection of tho la'ws. and if ho is'
denied by a common carrier facilities
or conveniences in the courso of his
journey, under substantially the .same
conditions as furnished to another
i traveler,, he may properly complain 1
(that his substantial privileges have'
j been Invaded."
The juptlce then pointed out ? that
defects in the petition presented an
insuperable obstacle to granting tho
injunction.
The court did not- intimate whether
it would merely hold the "luxury"
car section unconstitutional, or wheth
or it. would decide that this-section
being unconstitutional, "the ontlre law
must fall. The flv.o railroads asked-'
tho court when tho case decided to- !
day was argued;to hold tho ontiroMqw I
unconstitutional' if the "luxury" pro-j
viso was annulled. ' *. \

The Murlcland properly, located on

poslto tills city, which recently was
purchased by a. syndicate headed by
Ernest Williams for the benefit of the
Lynchburg Chamber of Commerce, Is
again the subject of litigation. A pult
j in chancery has been Instituted In the
! Circuit Court of Amherst County, the
| object of which is to convey perfect
j title to the purchasers. The suit is
styled Western State Hospital, in Us
own right aiul as trustee under the
j will of Sidney It. MurUland, deceased,
I and others, versus Ernest Williams
j and others, all of the committees of
the Inmates of the Staunton hospital
| being made parties to the suit, the
j number being about 2,000.
Eight or nine years ago S. H. Murk
! land died, leaving: a will by which ho
! devised the ISO acres of land to tho
: Western State Hospital, to be used by
. the trustees "for purchase of extra
comforts for patients of snld hospital."
Tho testator at the time of his will
i had a son at tho Staunton institution.
Following' this, tiio General Assembly
enacted a law providing: for the es
tablishment of a colony for epileptics
on tho farm, but later It was declared
unflt for this, and authority wan* given
for the purchase of a site. This re
sulted in the purchase of tho Willi?
