They are determined to give it a thorough trial. But if tho Commission expoots to stay it must give equal justice to the peoplo and to the railroads." Granted. The Commission is here to staj but not the present Commission ers who have demonstrated that they know nothing whatever about tho rail Toad business, neither have tho pro visions in tho present law that turns over to them every dollars worth of railroad property in the state come to stay, nor the present govornor who forced the lust legislature to pass suoh a law.

The News is aware that the governor has a heap on his mind now in prose luting his claims for re-eleotiou and A. 1". Alice but those people out on the border aro boing outrageously treated if reports aro true; it is the business of the stato department to ascertain whether they aro true or not.
