The State claims that the Croat Northern railway in promoting this issue of stock failed to take into considera? tion a Slate law which provides !hot due application shall first he made [for a hearing before the State Rail? way and Warehouse Commission as1 to the necessity for the issue for what purpose the money is to he used before such an issue can hi' ma tie. The State in its bill of complaint nyi rti that if such an issue of stock he made it will greatly increase freight and passenger rates In the State ami that the patrons of the railroad will have to hear the bur don of the increase. The Company's Answer. Tlie Great Northern In its answer, which was road In court today, set forth that It had the right to issue this slock by autorily of the charter of the Minneapolis ami St. Louis rail? way granted by the territory of Minnesota in 185G and by acts amen? datory theieto passed In 1805, In which the Minnenpolls and St. Cloud railway was given the right to issue one or more classes of pre? ferred stock in an amount not to exceed $30,.,000, The answer claims that all outstanding stock Is preferred stock and that none of Its common slock has |ie;n Issued, it further claims that all of the $00, 000,000 of stocit will be preferred slock ami none oT it common stock.
