BROOKLYN, Jan. 26.—J US tic# GaynoK
of the supreme court has handed down
liis decision on the application of Joseph
Loader for a inandamus to compel the
Brooklyn Heights railroad to operate its
earn in sufficient numbers to accommo
date the traveling public, in the Fulton
street, Putnam avenue. Green and
Gates and the Tompkins a\ enue lines
He signifies his intention of granting
a mandamus, the form to be determined
on the argument of counsel in court.
Loader, upon whose application the
writ of mandamus is issued, is a mer
chant who alleges that his business suf
fers by reason of the failure of the com
pany to operate its lines.
The Decision.
Justice Gaynor's deciston in part ia as
follows:
It is my duty to declare the law of
this case. This railroad corporation is
not in the position of a mere private in.
dividual or company carrying on busi
ness for private gain which may sus
pend business temporarily or perma
nently at pleasure. On the contrary it
3has a dual relation a public relation to
the people of the state and a private one
to its stockholders. It must not. be for
gotten that in its chief aspect it is a pub
lic corporation having duties to perform
v to the public, which transcend any ob
ligation which in its private aspect it
two* to its stockholders. It has re
ceived
Tuiiilhw off Or—t Tata*
from the state and has had conferred
upon it the state's trancendant power of
eminent, domain. In return it took upon
itself the performance of public duties
nnd functions, in the performance of
which it is in law and in fact not an in
dependent individual or entirety, but the
accountable agent of the state. Though
the principles are old and inherent in
the idea of the sovereignty of the people,
it would seem that in the recent rapid
»growth of corporate power, and of the
tendency to use public franchises for the
aggrandisement of individuals first and
.for the service and benefit of the public
secondly, have cone to \m somewhat
overlooked and
Need to Be Rcntated.
They haw? often been declared by the
highest oourts of this state and the su
preme court of the United States. The
duty of the company now before the
court is to carry passengers through cer
tain streets of Brooklyn, and to furnish,
man and run cars enough to fully ac
commodate the public. It may not law
fully cease to perform that duty even
for one hour. If they cannot get labor
to perform such duties, at what they
offer to pay, then they must pay more,
and as much as is necessary to get it.
Likewise, if the conditions in respect
of hours or otherwise which they im
.pose repel labor, they must adopt more
lament or just conditions.
Moat Keep Them Ootag. ,,
They may not stop their cars form*
'hour, much less one week or one year,
thereby to beat or coerce the price or
conditions of labor down to the price or
condition^ they offer. For them to do
'.so would be a defiance of law and of
government which, becoming general,
would inevitably by the force of exam
pie lead to general disquiet, to the dis
integration of the social order and even
,the downfall of thp government itself.
Experience shows the wisdom of our
fathers in retaining at least some *on
trol of corporations to whom are given
public franchises for the performance of
public duties.
The court cited one or two oases as
precedents, and continued:
It being admitted that the company is
not fully operating its line of road, I
feel it my duty to allow the writ prayed
for, either in its peremptory or alternate
form, uuless a sufficient answer has been
made in law. As I have said, the learned
judge who heard the previous applica
nt ion, decided that the answer then made
was even insoflkaent to raise a question
of fact, and only refused the writ in
order to give the company more time
with an admonition to it that it should
not longer delay. I do not think the
present answer of the company is isuffi
cient to prevent awrit from being issued.
Ytotrnoe Not an ICxcnae.
'Xhe claim of violence amounting to a
prevention is not legally made out. In
stances of violence generally by other
than the former employes of the com
«. pany is shown, but it ia also shown that
not only the police force of the city,
but over 7,000' soldiers are preserving
i order, and I cannot believe that this
company is not protected in its rights,
nor do I think any question of fact is
fairly raised on that bead.

LON| II1D«H.
LONDON, Jan. 25.—Lord Randolph
Churchill died at 6 o'clock Thursday
morning. He had been sinking rapidly
for (several days and his relatives were
constantly at his bedside as his death
waft" momentarily expected. His last
hours were free from pain.
BIOGRAPHICAL. J*
Lord Ran »lph Henry Spencer Church
Ill was the second son of the seventh Duke
of Marlborough. He was born on Feb
18, 1849, and was educated at Mertou col
lege, Oxford. He represented Woodstock
in the house of commons from February,
until November, lHa5. He afterwards
stood for Birmiiiffham but was defeated,
and was then returned for South PaddhiK
ton. From 1880 onward he made himself
conspicuous in the house and on the pub
lic platform by tl^? violence of his speeches
against the Liberal party, and he was the
chief member of the section of the house
known as the Fourth party. On the ac
cession of Lord Salisbury's government to
office in 1885 Lord Randolph Churchill
filled the ponition of secretary of state for
India, and his promotion to that high
place was a proof of the importance that
he had assumed in the ranks of the Con-'
servative party.
Lord Randolph's short tenure of the
India office was marked by the annexation
of Upper Burmah. Departmental work,
however, did not prevent his taking a
great part in the straggle, which at the
general ehffetion of November, 1885, again
returned the Liberals to power. He re
signed office with Jjord Salisbury, to re
turn, after six months, as chancellor of
the exchequer and leader of the house of
commons but, to the surprise of all, he
resigned suddenly in December Of Stoe
same year.
Married American.
Lord Randolph married in 1874 Miss
Jennie Jerome, daughter of the late I Leon
ard Jerome of New York. Lord and Lady
Churchill visited this country for the first
time in many years last summer and then
continue^ on a tour of the world, fror
which they returned, landing at Marseilles
only a few weeks ago. This voyage was
undertaken for the benefit of Lord Ran
dolph's health, which wan badly shattered
when he landed in New York on July 4
last. He was said to be suffering from
nervous prostration brought on by over*
work. But the trip around the world
seemn to have done him no good. Lord
and Lady Churchill reached London from
Marseilles a few weeks Mince, and the for
mer's condition was then so feeble that he
had to be lifted from the railroad car to
his carriage.
Lord Randolph Churchill leaves a
widow, who has shown herself a most
devoted attendant upon him daring bis
last illness, and two sons.

THE FLOUR TRAOC.
Week A#o
mt tbe Hopeful MM
Has Disappeared.
MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 25.—The
western Miller says:
North
Minneapolis mills last week ground
87,275 barrels of flour, against 71,900 the
week before, 105,225 in 1894, and 196,790
in 1893. Figures may touch 100,000 bar
rels the present week.
Trade was pretty quiet last week.
Buyers, both at home and abroad, are
porgBd to be less disposed to take hold,
and not a few millers think the situa
tion has lost some of the promising feat
ures apparent a fortnight ago. Prices
are easier at the mills, owing to lower
wheat.
Duluth- Superior mills made 6,500 bar
rels, against 15,366 the preceding week,
8,627 in 1894 and 9,983 ia 1893. The
output is apt to be even smaller this
week, if any flour at all is made. The
situation as to the flour is unimproved
and is really little better than in the few
weeks immediately following close of
navigation, which were dullest of the
vtsar.

BOMK, Jan. 25.—The trouble growing
out of the attack made upon Archbishop
Ireland by Bishop McQuaid of Roches
ter, N. Y., has been the subject of an
inquiry by the Vatican, it having been
held by the supporters of the archbishop
that the sermon preached by Bishop
McQuaid in the Rochester cathedral
was subversive of church discipline.
The papal secretary of state, Cardinal
Rampolla, has addressed to Cardinal
Gibbous of Baltimore and the papal del
egate of Washington the findings of the
court of inquiry. These will also be
conveyed to Archbishop Ireland and
Bishop McQuaid. Briefly, tl\e conclu
sions of the court are that Bishop Mc
Quid committed a mistake in liis ser
mon and in the reason he assigned for
the necessity of such delivery. Arch
bishop Ireland is sustained- in all the
positions he has taken in the matter.

John Smith and B. H. Timberlake are
the five jurors BO far selected in the
Hayward ease.
Up to date the jury is above the aver
age, containing four native beam Amer

Two are life insurance men, one a
laborer, one in the lumber business, and
one has no business at present.
The work progressed rapidly, far be
yond the most sanguine expectations of
the parties interested, and the attorneys
having secured two additional jurors by
the time court adjourned for the night.
The Mate'* CaM»
Tie state will offer evidence wWhh
will trace the actions of the accused all
through the day of the murder up to the
time when Blixt took the seat by the
side of the murdered woman for that
fatal drive. It will be shown by several
witnesses that Harry Hayward was in
consultation with Blixt to within 10
minutes of the time when Blixt left the
Ozark flats to meet Miss Ging at the
point where he took the seat by her side.
This will show that Harry had only
time to keep that appointment, as relat
ed in Blixt's confession. Every action
of the accused will be shown to the jury,
his cure to have a complete alibi proved,
showing actions at variance with those
of an innocent man all through the
evening.

Indian Head.
WASHINGTON Jan. 25.—Following the
warning conveyed by the Yalu fight, the
ordnance bureau of the navy has been
making some interesting experiments at.
Indian Head to determine the effect of
combustible fittings and fabrics of dif
ferent kinds of explosive shells. Two
4-inch shells of the United States Pro
jectile company were exploded in a
chamber 10 feet square, covered with
2-inch plates and containing cotton
sheeting. One shell loaded with gun
powder wrecked the chamber, setting
fire to the sheeting. The second shell
loaded with gun cotton and a 3-ounce
detonator did not wreck the chamber so
much, although it was much more vio
lent. The projectile broke up into small
pieces, but not as much damage was
done, and the sheeting was not set on
fire. The experiments will be continued
with other explosives.

IRON TRADE REVIEW.
Little Change in Actual Condition* Mae*
the Ib Kliuting of the Year..
Cr.EV'i'.i.AND, Jan. ^5.—The Iron Trade
Review says. The iron trade has come
down to the hist we.ik of January with
little change in actual conditions since
the opening of the year, but with in
creasing signs of the enlarged volume
that will result from present planning.
The week has brought further evidence
that the year will be fairly active in lake
•hip building, and demand from
that source already has brought
several good contract« into the
mills. Structural work on foot
in the east, besidei big contracts
noted last week, will make mills in this
section comfortable, once specifications
begin to come in. That the incursions
of Western mills, so notable, a year ago,
have been checked in the East of late,
may be attributed in part to the main
tenance of more uniform rates by the
railroads—a policy that promises to pre
vail more and more. Pig iron, apart
from the firmer feeling in Bessemer,
shows further signs of weakness. There
has been little selling since the new
year.
