Austin Texas Aug 23 Governor
Campbell the senate judcial commit
tee and fully one hundred otner per
sons were in attendance upon the
hearing upon the bill that proposes to
guarantee the payment of certain un
secuied claims against the Interna
tional and Gieat Northern railroad be
fore its tale September 15 in a two
hours sitting of the house judiciary
committee this afternoon Few more
interesting hearings have been con
ducted by either house and every word
trom each side was listened to eagerly
by all who were able to get within
hearing distance of the arguments
T B Greenwood of Palestine attor
ney for a number of claimants against
the railroad occupied the whole time
this afternoon and he hurled a mass
of aigument court decisions and sar
casm against the propositions laid
down by the opponents of the bill in
tue hearing yesterday He not only
contended that the pending bill is en
tirely constitutional but endeavored
to set foith that the officials of the
railroads had exceeded the provisions
of the constitution when they confis
cated cotton that was shipped over
their road in order to make up a fund
with wnich to pay interest on the
mo itgage bonds and had robbed those
who had supplied the road with cash
materials and labor to keep the road
going in order to meet the calls for
interest from the bond holders in
order to prevent the road being thrown
Into foreclosure proceedings sooner
than it was
From depositions of Auditor Maury
the attorney showed that the road be
tween January 1 1907 and March 1
1910 had paid to the first mortgage
bond holders 1338285 to the hold
ers of the second mortgage bonds
there had gone in interest between
January 1 1907 and the time of the
appointment of a receiver the sum of
522450 and to the holders of third
mortgage bonds 43790
Added to this total of 1904225
there had been paid out of earnings
of the road 73020 for a new depot at
San Antonio and expenditures for
other bettrements of the road of
38226530 making a total expendi
ture of 264776357 in addition to
the more than 4000000 which the
road owed the Goulds There had
been a separate tie and ballast ac
count of 843000 which had gone into
the betterment of the road thus in
creasing the value of bonds yet the
people who had kept the road going
with their1 supplies cash and labor
are denied payment for the same he
Statistics were produced showing
that the total of unsecured claims
against the road amounted to 2250
000 1450000 of which was due when
Mr Freeman took charge of the road
Mr Greenwood quoted a decision
from Judge Lurton now a member of
the United States supreme court ren

dered while a member of the supreme
court of the state of Tennessee and
afterwards affirmed by the United
States supreme court in which it was
held that when a man buys a railroad
mortgage bond that he has no right
to receive a dividend on his invest
ment until after the current expenses
for operating the road have been paid
He argued that judgment for per
sonal injuries of employes came in the
same class as other operating ex
penses and related that he came as
the client of the wife and children of
one named Bradt an engineer who
lost his life in a wreck on the Interna
tional and Great Northern due to the
contributory negligence of the road in
not keeping the track in better repair
He said the decedent saw his danger
but endeavored to save his passen
gers instead and lost his life in so
doing Under every construction of
law he contended this claim should
come upon the gross income of the
road and that the bond holders were
entitled only to the net income after
all operating expenses had been paid
He said the road had allowed the
debt for supplies to accumulate in or
der that there might be something on
hand to supply the demand for inter
est from the bond holders and he
scouted the idea that a bill of the na
ture proposed would shock Wall street
or any other financial center He said
the same stock plea of unconstitution
ality was the cry that was put up
when the railroad commission was
proposed by Reagan the stock and
bond law by Hogg and every other
regulative measure that had come up
for consideration But as all these
measures had redounded to the ben
efit of the road and the people of the
state so would this one in the end

decision of Justice Waites in the case
of Fesdick vs Shaw to the effect that
every bond holder agrees upon the
purchase of a bond that the current
debts of the road must be paid from
the current receipts before he enjoins
any interest on his bonds and that
under this construction his clients
who had contributed to the operating
expenses of the road ought to have
been paid off before the hond holders
All the claims that he represents
have been allowed in the state courts

the federal courts because of the or
