The Court of Appeals Delivers An Opinion. Tho, Judgment of the Lower Court Fully Sustained, The North River Refinery Forfeits Its Franchises—The Trust People Not Alarmed. Associated Press Dispatches.l Albany, N. V., June 24.—The de cision of tlie court of appeals in tlie case of the people vs. the North River Sugar Refinery Company, written by Judge Finch, wa.s handed down today. It says : ''The judgment soughtagainst the defendant is one of corporate death. The state which created, asks us to de stroy, and the penalty invoked repre sents the extreme rigor of the law. Two questions open before us: First, has the defendant corporation exceetled or abused its powers ; and sec ond, does that excess or abuse threaten or harm the public welfare. We find that it lias become an integral part and element of a combination which posesses over it absolute control and dictates the extent and manner and terms of its en tire business activity. The defendant corporation has lost the power to make a dividend, and is compelled to pay over its net earnings to the mas ter whose servant it has become. Under the order of that master, it is re fused the privilege to refine sugar, and by as much has lessened the supply upon the market. It cannot stir unless the master approves, and yet is entitled to receive from the earnings of other relineries, amassed as profits in the treasury of the board, its pro portionate share for subdivision among its own stockholders who now own substitute certificates. In return for this advantage it has be come liable to become mortgaged; not for its own corporate benefit alone, but to supply with funds the controlling board when that board reached out kn ottier coveted refineries. All of this is admitted by the defendant." The decision, after further considering the formation of the trust, says: ''The defendant could have prevented it being founded by refusing to register or recog nize the legal transfer of stock. They should have appealed to the law, thus shattering the trust, at the outset. The question to be determined is whether the conduct of the defendant in aiding to form the trust was illegal. In all these points which have been reviewed, it is found that the corporation was doing the public an injury, and in avoiding the state law which compels the reser vation of corporate rights, proved un faithful to its owners. The present cor poration or trust puts upon the market capital stock, proudly defiant of actual values and capable of unlimited expan sion. It is one thing for the state to re spect rights of ownership, and quite an other thing to add to the possibly further extension of their consequence by creating artificial authorities in the management of all such aggregations. If corporations could combine and mass their forces in a solid trust with little added risk to the capital already in, without limit to mag nitude, a tempting and easy road is opened to enormous combinations vastly exceeding in number and strength any possibilities of individual ownership. The state seeks to protect individuals, rather than combinations." Concluding, the opinion says: "The defendant corporation has violated its charter and failed in the performance of its corporate duties, and that in a respect so material and important as to justify a judgment of dissolution. Besides that in this state there can be no partnerships of separate and independent corporations, whether direct or indirect, through the medium of a trust —no substantial consolidations, which avoid and disregard the statutory provisions and restraints ; but that man ufacturing corporations must be and leinain separate as they were created, or one under the statute. The judgment appealed from is affirmed with costs." New Yokk, June 24. —Supreme Court Justice Barrett, referring to the decision, said: "This is a matter in which I have taken greater interest, I think, than in any other which has come before me. This question of trusts is, I thinkahnost of as much consequence as slavery." On the street the sugar people and those interested in the trust, appeared to be more amused than disconcerted by the decision of the court. They say the trust has not received its death blow, but will still continue. Only the "method" of doing business will be affected. ILLINOIS KKFUKLICANS. A State Ticket Nominated and Platform Adopted. Springfield, 111., June 24.—The Re publican state convention today nomin ated the following ticket: Treasurer, Franz Amberg, Chicago; superintendent of public instruction, Dr. Richard A. Edwards, the present incumbent. Trus tees of the State University were also nominated. The platform renews the declaration in favor of a free and honest ballot and count, and recommends the enactment of the Australian ballot system by the next general assembly ; also the bill now before congress. National and state action is urged against trusts and com bines whereby the prices of necessaries of life are unjustly enhanced, and com binations of common carriers whereby the expenses of carrying the products of tlie farm arc placed at such exorbitant figures as to amount to the confiscation of both farm and labor. The platform maintains that no cor poration or company should be per mitted to get more than a reasonable per cent, on the actual capital invested and reasonable wages for its officers and employees; that dividends on watered stock are robbc-v. The platform favors the use of both gold and silver as money. Libor.il pensions are favored. The importance of the temperance ques tion is recognized, and "all proper and practical methods for abating the evils of the liquor traffic" are favored. The administration of President Har rison is cordially endorsed, as are also the rules of the house of representa tives, "by which the rule of the major ity in congress is made effective not withstanding the filibustering tactics of tne democratic minority, whose only purpose seems to be to prevent and ob struct wise legislation." On the school question the platform says: "We recognize the American public school system as the chief agency in securing intelligent citizenship, and the chief bulwark of popular liberties, and we declare in favor of a cumpulsorv education law which will guarantee to all the children of the state ample op portunity of acquiring such elementary education as will fit them for intelligent duties when they reach the age of man hood. But we are at the same time op posed to any arbitrary interference with the right of parents or guardians to educate their children in private schools, no matter where located, aud we favor amendment to the existing compulsory education law so as to conform with the declaration herein set forth, and also the repeal of so much of said law as provides for public supervision over private schools."

CLASHING AUTHORITIES AT SPO KANE FALLS. An Interesting Contest Being Waged. Be tween the City and State Authorities. Arrests and Counter Arrests Made. Spokane Falls, Wash., June 24.—A1l day long the city has been deeply ex cited over the conflict between the city and state authorities. A struggle has been pending for some time between the City Park Transit Company and the Spokane Falls Street Railway Com pany, for the privilege of laying street car lines on Division street. At the last meeting of the council that body ordered both companies to tear up their tracks from the sides of the streets, and gave the City Park Transit Company privilege to lay a track in the center of the street. The City Park Transit Company obeyed the order, but the Spokane Street Railway Company did not, and instead, obtained an injunction from the superior court to restrain the tear ing-up of their tracks. At 4 o'clock this morning the difficulty began. A large force of laboring men in the employ of the City Park Transit Company began tearing up the tracks of their opponents, being protected by a large force of po lice. Judge Kannard, of the superior court, then issued a restraining order, and Acting-Mayor Davidson, Street Superintendent Swinglot and Alderman Covey were arrested for contempt of court. Soon thereafter Sheriff Hinch liffe and Deputy Hugh drove to the scene and placed Chief of Police Hub bard and his captains under arrest. They submitted and in turn or dered the police to arrest the sheriff and his deputy. Then all parties went before Judge Kannard. Judge Kannard was annoyed over the resistance to his orders, and directed the sheriff to enforce them and to tear up the new track of the Transit Com pany, if he had to call on every able bodied man in the county. The sheriff gathered two hundred and fifty depu ties, and going to Division street tore up the track of the Transit Company, and relaid the track of the Spokane Street Railway Company, thus leaving matters where they were at the beginning of the struggle, and placing it in the superior court for determination. A special ses sion of the city council is now in session, but as yet has taken no steps in the matter. Investigating the Koodlera. Chicago, June 24.—An investigation into the charges of boodling in the city council was begun by the grand jury this morning. Evidence was presented that Mike McDonald, the wealthy ex gambler, olfered Alderman Charles Monear and Simon AVallner $'5,000 each to vote for the West Lake-street ele vated railroad ordinance. They only got $1,300 each and made an affidavit to that effect in the office of Joseph C. Mackin, recently released from the pen itentiary for election fraud; then the things were sworn to by Mackin and his clerk. This afternoon attachments were is sued for the two ex-aldermen, Monear and Wallner, and they were brought in and gave bonds for their appearance to morrow. Monear says the affidavit bearing his name is a forgery, and the whole business is a conspiracy. It is through a man named Peter (iabel that the charges of bribery are expected to be proved, Gabel is a gambler, and is said to have an unsavory reputation. A Hen Thief's Hard Luck.

Not a Wheel Turning on the Illinois Central. Tlie Road's Immense Traffic at a Standstill. All on Account of an Obnoxious Superintendent. The Trainmen Demand His Removal Be fore They Will Allow Operations to Resume. Associated Press Dispatches. I Chicago, June 24. — One thousand freight conductors, brakemen and switchmen of the Illinois Central struck last night, followed by three hundred passenger trainmen this morning. Not a wheel w r as turning on the road here today. Everything is quiet. The strike is for the discharge of an obnoxious su perintendent, Russell, and the rein statement of two minor officials. The strikers this afternoon ordered all the branches of the road in Illinois, Wisconsin and lowa tied up. It is said not a wheel is moving north of the Ohio river. The men insist on the dismissal of Superintendent Russell, whose jurisdic tion extends over the lines in Illinois, lowa and Wisconsin. They have many grievances against him. Train-masters were discharged by him as mentioned in these dispatches last night. The men did not want to be held re sponsible for interfering with the United States mail or express matter, and con sequently attached the mail and express cars to the New Orleans mail train today. The general superintendent, however, refused to start the train until passenger coaches were attached, and the strikers warned him that he de tained the mail and express at the com pany's risk. General Manager Beck and General Superintendent Sullivan had a confer ence with the strikers this afternoon. The men stated their determination not to return to work until Superintendent Russell was dismissed. The only con clusion arrived at was that the company would resist the men's demand. The tie-up will cause serious trouble, not only locally, but throughout a large section of country both west and south. The suburban traffic of the road is enormous, the largest in the United States. Trains run in and out of the city every five minutes from 5 o'clock in the morning until midnight, and are crowded. All the people, many of whom live beyond the cable-car limits, are now thrown upon their own resources for transportation. But it isnot this that will trouble the commercial world. To stop the freight traffic of the Illinois Central means to prevent thousands of people in Northern lowa, Southern Illinois, Ken tucky, Tennessee, Mississippi and Louis iana from getting their products to market.

The International Annual Convention in Session at Pittsburg. Pittsburg, June 24. —The interna tional Sunday school convention met this morning. Twelve hundred dele gates were present from all the states and territories, and provinces of Canada, representing all the evangelical denomi nations. At the afternoon session Presi dent Reynolds spoke at length of work in the field. New England now, instead of being the fold at which the great west draws its missionary supplies, is a missionary field itself. The vast number of foreigners coming in has created a demand that never ex isted before for missionaries right in the heart of New England. In the south both white and colored people are inter ested, and great work is being done. In the west and northwest, so far as Sun day schools are concerned, no states in the union are better supplied. Al though the organizations are weak, they are improving, and the outlook in the west is glorious. Summing up, he said, all over the world and all over this great country, Sunday school work is in a more prosperous condition than ever. The people are dropping their denomi national prejudices, and realizing more and more that if this country is ever to be saved the Sunday school must be the means. And not only Christianity, but thinking men of all classes are looking to this institution as the mainstay of our nation." Major Jarris, of Alabama, was then elected president, and other officers were chosen. Adjourned till tomorrow. Surveys in New States.

Debate on the German Army Bill—Sarah Bernhardt Takes an Opiate—Other Foreign News. Associated Press Dispatches. I London, June 24.—1n the commons Ilealy asked the speaker whether there was any precedent for an "earmark" licensing fund. The speaker's reply created a sensation. He made a long speech, giving the opinion that there was no precedent for such a fund. To allow an earmarking license fund to ac cumulate, as the government proposed, he thought was a grave innovation,which the house itself ought to decide upon. The ruling was received with opposition cheers. After further debate the minis ters retired to discuss the speaker's opinion. Lord Harrington and Cham berlain advised the cabinet to drop the cause. No definite conclusion was arrived at, but it is understood Ritchie and Goschen recognize the impossibility of retaining the clause, and will allow it to be dropped, while retaining their portfolios. On returning to the house, Smith asked that further consideration of the licensing bill be postponed to give the government time to consider the speaker's ruling. He promised to announce a decision next Thursday. The German Army Kill. Berlin, June 24.—There was a spir ited debate in the reichstag today over the army bill.
