Atchison, Kan., Aug. 13. The mo tion to dissolve the temporary injunc tion in the case of the Svmns eroccr company of Atchison and others aim- ilarlv situated against the state lioard of railroad commissioners and six rail- road companies operated in Kan- sas, was overruled this morning bv Judrre Robert M. Eaton of the district court The suit was brought to enjoin the commissioners and the railroad companies from put ting into effect an order of the com- missioners. issued .March 3. 18U2. chanrrinir the rates heretofore estab- lished on sugar, coffee, beans and canned goods from Atchison, Leaven- .i. i.-. i r.v.. . i. . i. . . . V.Ulblt, 1 &. 1111010 lljr UUU 1UI l UtUlb 1A Hutchinson, Wichita, Salina and Arkansas City in car load lots. Prior to July, 1831, and up to the present time, the four articles men tioned were transported by all rail roads west of the Mississippi river nnder Western classification as fifth class if in car load lots and fourth class in less than car load lots, the difference in rates being five cents per 100 pounds. Under the present schedule the rate on the articles named in car load lots from Missouri river points to Wichita is 36 cents, to Hnjcjiinson 36 cente, to Salina 29 cents and to Arkansas City 43 cents; and in less than car load lots to Wichita 41 f.nte tn HiiTfhincnn 41 p(ntjtt- m 1 Ealina 34 cents, to Arkansas City 49 -cents. Under the order of March 5 the articles named were taken out of the fifth class and given a CDmmodltyrate as follows: Sugar in car load lots from the Mis ir load lots from the Mis- i to Wichita, Hutchinson. Sa- . souri river una and Arkansas City, 15 cenUL ou Spffee, beans and canned goods in car load lots to Wichita 25 cents, to Hutch inson 35 cents, to Salina 22 cents and to Arkansas City 28 cents. The forth class or less than car load lots remain as they are, making a difference in the rate between car load and less than car load lots on sugar to Wichita and Hutchinson of -G cents and on cofiee, beans and canned goods 16 cents; to Salina, on sugar 19 cents and on coffee, beans and canned goods 13 cents; to Arkansas City, on sugar 31 cents and on the other articles 31 cents. It is this great disparity of rates between car load and less than car load lots that the plaintiff claimed was unreasonable and unjust and would, if the order should go into effect, discriminate against Missouri river points in favor of interior towns. The court holds that as the four articles in controversy are not pro duced in the state, except at a few places, and the profit on them is small, and the retail merchant will purchase them where he buys his other poods, it follows that unless the wholesale dealer can sell thes articles, his trade in other com modities will fall off. The railroad commissioners have no right to inter fere with or make a rate which in any way affects an interstate rate on such products. 'If it be conceded," the decision concludes, "that the present rates are discriminative in favor of Missouri river jobbers, as is claimed by the defendants, it cannot be remedied by making greater discrimination against them, for two wrongs never make a right The Interstate com merce commission in the case of Thurber,t aL. ajrainst the New York Central and Hudson River rail- , road company, held (hat a difference . upon car ipaa lots and less dkGnh?fJ 61 thesam;mer.chan-1 Saleraf t competition between large and M dealers 8U3.iiv nn?l.lf general use, andwhlcn under exiling conditions, oi trade furnish a large TOlUmC of business to rAfriers. is nn.

The right of the plaintiff to a temporary injunction accrued when a tearing was denied to them by the commissioners, the order became a Continuing trespass and a court of equity will interpose to prevent a mul tiplicity of suits." The case will be appealed. Senator Dzvls Seat. St. TPaul, Minn., A'g. 13.
