The case presented interesting and nice points of law. There are said to be over 140 express companies in the United States, and it was contended that if a railroad is com pelled to carrythe packages, Jkc9 of two companies it may be compelled to furnish the same facilities to every company organized. But this argument, plausible as it is, does not deny the principle that the public interests demand that railroads shalljextend equal facili ties to competing express compan ies. The public receives the benefit of such competition, and it has not been shown that such a demand -has been made upon the railroads as they could not comply with. The interest of the public is paramount, and the public ought not to be denied the advantages in rates which, competition always affords. To do so is to make them subject to the extortions of a com pany having a monopoly and to permit this would be for the State to neglect its plain duty. To be sure no railroad could be required to afford facilities to one hundred and forty companies. The people would have no risht to impose so great a burden upon the roads. But they have the right to compel the roads not to grant exclusive privileges to one express company, just as they have a right to prevent all other species oi discrimination. mere is no practical danger of having more applications for facilities than the railroads can reasonably supply. It is a well settled principle of law that the right to regulate and control the charges of railroads and the use of their property is reserved by the State unless granted away by express words. It has often been decided that this right to con trol extends to the use as it does to rates and charges. It cannot be denied that a contract made by a railroad company with an ex press company is a contract relating to the use of the property of the railroad. In his brief in this case Mr. W. W. Clark upon this line contended: criminations to prevent special and and io one law is a past of the contract. A statute compelling the railroads to permit express companies to use their property does not impair the obliga tion of a pre-existing contract and is not unconstitutional. It is also true, as statad by Mr. Clark, that if the contract which is lawful when made is afterwards made unlawful the contract is void. The decision of the railroad com mission court is in harmonv with the legislation that denies the right to common carriers to make dis- and which seeks the granting of exclusive privileges, that we believe the equities of the case demanded. If the Stute says to a railroad "you shall not discriminate in rates and you shall charge certain specific rates,"is it not by the same reasoning justified is compelling the railroads to offer eqnal facilities to rival ex press companies? Not to do so is to permit railroad companies to give special and exclusive privileges to one express company which is contrary to the spirit of all legis lation affecting discriminations by corporations. The Commission has rendered a wise decision, and one lhat appears to us to be founded on the principles of law and equity. association and aspirations. There is some prospect of his remaining for quite a period, returning to Europe early in the year, via Japan and China, by the new Canadian Pacific steamship line." Strength and Health.

The Railway Commission filed its decision yesterday in the impor tant case of the Atlantic Express Company against the Richmond and Danville Railroad and the Wil mington and Weldon Railroad Com pany. Heretofore the railroads have all made an exclusive contract with a particular express company, giving it a monopoly, denied facili ties to all others and shut off all competition in the carrying of express matter. In North Carolina no complaint of this course had A. One of the most interesting per sonalities in America is Mr. James Gordon Bennett, owner of the New York Herald. His paper easily leads all others in its com plete news service, and there is or dinarily an air of reliability and solidity about the Herald which commends it to thoughtful men. The owner of such a great journal is bound to be an object of interest to all reading people. Much gossip has been printed about him, and there is an air of such mystery throw around his life by the gossip that all are interested in his doings and sayings. In speak- ing about Mr. Bennett's return to New York, the Recorder furnishes some interesting information in re gard to the great editor. "This will be," says the Recorder, "Mr. Bennett's first visit to this city in three years. It has been the fash ion in some ill-natured quarters to pany has no authority to make such sneer at Mr- Bennett's residence contracts at all, in Europe, but the well-informed l 2.
