Washington, Jan. 4 The new. policy
of law, making an initial carrier of in
terstate commerce, liable for loss tu
shipments while in transportation not
only on its lines, but' on those of son-
meeting carriers, is - declared constitu
tional .bv the Supreme 'court of the
United States. , Tha policy was incor
porated " in the so-called . "Carmack
amendment'' 'to" flitJcprn raieJaw,.
enacted by Congress in 1906.
Justice Lurton announced the opinion
of the court. Strangely enough Justice
Ltmar, who yesterday took his place as
a member of the court, argued the case
before the court on behaif of the rail-j
One objection to the law was tha it
interferred with the freedom of contract
Justice Lurton rplii d that there was
no such ing as absolute freedom of
"Contracts which contravene public
policy," said Justice Lurton, "cannot
be lawfully made at all, and th) power
to make contracts may in all cases be
regulated as to form, evidence ard
validity as to third pereon. The power1
of government extends to the denial of
liberty of contract to the extent of for
bidding or rvgulaVr.g every contract
which is reasonably cilcuUtrd to iniuri-
nuidv affect l Ik; public inturesis."
The constitutionality of the amend
ment to th? tho iloptiurn rate law was
attacked by several railroads on two
uroid grounds. One was that it inter-
errcd wiih li e liberty of contract not
only of carrier-', but of shippprs. The
other was thr-.t it imposed liability upon
the rni'road icmpuuy which was the
nitial carri-r for 1os on connecting
ires when the former had no part in
the management of the latter nor any
control over them. In elTect, it was
said that the. in'nial carrier was made
responsible for t)lher company's wrongs.

New Bern'a Population Given Out
'r Jt - . ; . ' --
, is Thousands Eplow Esti- .
The Journal received the census re
port for New Bern from Director ' Du
rand at Washington yesterday and the
official count is given as 9,961, against
9,090 for 1900, and 7.843 for 1890.
This enumeration will coma as a sur
prise to the citizens of this city who
have been confident of a large increase.
It i safe ta say that it will not be ac
cepted as correct by any one familiar
with the changes that have taken place .
as per figures on this official increase
of 9$ per cent, will be interesting.
The post office census as sent in a
year ago indicated that over 17,000 peo
ple were served by the city mail car
riers, These lists are made out with
great care and while some may have
been outside the strict city limits,' the
nnmber cannot be far wrong. , ,
The post office receipts for 1900 were
$27,918.37 against $11,273.02 for 1910,
an increase of 147 per cent
The tax valuation for 1910 is $4,750,
000 against $2,169,173 in 1900, an in
crease of 120 per cent.
The school census or attendance for
1910 is 1,622 against 877 for 1900, an in
crease of 90 per cent It is indeed difi
cult to understand an increase of 90
per cent, in school children with an in
crease of 9 per cent in population,
. The city directory for 1908 contains
over 4000 names, and at that time it
was figured as showing a population of
over 14,000. ' fi
Same facts of the taking of the cen- '
sus here may explain some Of this dis
crepency, In one district there was an
enumerator for whites and an (numer
ator for colored, leading' to confusion.
In another district the position was re
fused sad the count was taken late. It
is supposable that when the count, was
sent in for this district it was never in
cluded. ' . '
However, the official count will stand
as it is, and New 3e:n will keep on
growing, paving with brick more of its
streets, using its 25 miles of cement
sidewalks, riding on its 24 daily pasr
enp er trains, having 20,000 people on
its streets at one time to' witness a pa
rade, and continuing to be the motrop-
olis of Eastern North Carolina.
