Mr. O'Brien reviewed first the state's demurrers, which deny the ju risdiction of the court, the right to en. join state officers or the sufficiency of the bills. What State Will Prove. In a general way he announced that the state would prove that the mer chandise rates and the 2-cent passen ger rate are remunerative; that the present commodity rates are unequal and unjust, and that the proposed rates are higher per ton per mile than the interstate rates now in force. The state will show that higher net profits are now earned on local than on inter state business, on the companies' own figures and therefore that local rates are exorbitant. We claim," said Mr. O'Brien, ' that there being no diverse citizenship, this court has no jurisdiction. "We claim, second, that the railway commission, not being concerned with the commodity rate law or the 2-cent fare act, the court will not inquire into then- validity in this action. "Third, that the complainants have not brought themselves within the ninety-fourth equity rule. Is Action Against State. "Fourth, that this is an action against the state and is in opposition to the federal constitution. "Fifth, that the bills are multifari ous. "We insist," continued Mr. O'Brien, 'that an interlocutory temporary in junction will not issue because of its effect to change existing condition, and. further, that the court will give no attention regarding the claims in the matter of the passenger fare and merchandise rates, two things whiefy the roads have accepted of their own free will and which they have volun. tarily put into effect."
