be heard before Justice Field, of the
United States supreme court, on the
20th Inst. It Is the first hearing in a
suit brought by the United Stales gov
ernment in California, involving the
Question whether the Southern Pacific
Company, of Kentucky, can exercise tbe
general corporate powers and especially
hold leases of railroad corpoiations in
oilier slates. As is well known, the
charter for the Southern Pacific Com
pany, of Kentucky, was secured by C.
P. Huntington, for the purpose cl talc
ing the leases of the Central Pacific,
the California A Oregon, the Southern
1 auitio, ot California, and other railroads
forming the so-called Huntington sys
tem . As the leases involve guarantees,
interest and dividends on hundreds of
millions of secuiities, the great iuior-
tance of the case will a, onee be seen.
It is considered by lawyers a dangerous
suit for the defendant company.
