The suit of the United Stales, as
trustee, vs. the Nashville & Chattanoo
ga railway, was argued and derided in
tlie Cniled Mates District Court yester
day by the jury returning a verdict iu
favor of the defendants.
The suit was brought some time ago
to compel the asliville I hattanooga
railway to pay accrued interest on cer
S lain coupon bonds. Koine time previous
( tht uiu the li.itl Kliitix intvern.
incut bought, as trustee for the Chica-
saw Nation, certain coupon Is .mis issued
by the Nashville & Chattanooga rail
way in 1,V)2 and endorsed by the State.
These bonds fell duo iu 1882. The in
terest which accumulated between July
1, 1801, and January 1, 1800, inclusive,
amounting to about"? 150,000 evidenced
by coupons, was not paid during tlie
war nor subsequently, but the bonds
anil all coupons subsequent to January
i, iniiii inn. oereioiore neen paid uyine
railway company. The suit just deci
ded was a suit by the (lovernnicnt,
brought iiiioii the coupons matured be
tween July 1, 1801, and January 1.
1800, and with interest thereon, urn
king a total claim of something over
83110,000. While it was conceded that
the statute of limitation did not run
against the (iovernnient in matters
merely trustee, that it was where it was
the real party in interest it was con
tended w here it was subject to the stat
utes of limitation. Defendant contend
