Last Tuesday the Missouri Sn

from charging three cents a mile

The Supreme Court holds in sub
stance that tin- rate question has
passed to the jurisdiction of the
federal Court; thai the State Su
preme Court will not assume juris
diction nver any suit pending in
the United states Court and over
which the latter court has assumed
jurisdiction; that the Circuit At

I a state wide writ . and that .lodge
Williams had no authority to en

three-cent rate were exasperating,
it is true, ami the temptation of
the popular acclaim with which he
would be hailed if he could thwart
the railroads was great, but still it
musl be admitted that he stepped
a little outside the role of his du

The result oi the State Supreme

that until the constitutionality of

with the city by paying $150,000
or thereabouts for the water they
hud stolen, but as that was only
about half of the amount which
the water tax at regular rates
would have amounted to, the city
very properly refused to accept it
as a settlement. A New York
paper speaking ot this latter inci
dent, remarked thai the Sugar
Trust had shown that it was not
only u robber but a sneak thief as

of the Trust deny uny knowledge of

Dr. Win. Long, tin- naturalist,

thai the latter is now on a huge
hunting expedition, bunting simply

of tin Presbyterian church held in

w as whether church members, and
specially ministers, should use to

certain as to the outcome, hut a
Presbj terlan minister in Cleveland,
Ohio, says he expects to continue
lo use tobacco and that the Assem
bly had too much important busi
ness on hand to fool away time on
such a trivial matter. He said there
was always some seeker after noto
riety who introduced measures that
did more harm than good. I re

Tin- Senate had no recourse. If it

fixed it. The whole game seemed to
be, on tin- part of the House, to put
the Senate in a hole, and the Senate
could do nothing but kill tin- bills iu
