REAGAN v. FARMERS' LOAN & TRUST CO(1894)

Argued: Decided: May 26, 1894

C. A. Culberson, Atty. Gen. Texas, Henry C. Coke, and W. S. Simkins, for appellants.

John F. Dillon, E. B. Kruttschnitt, Henry B. Turner, John J. McCook, Winslow S. Pierce, Geo. R. Peck, and J. W. Terry, for appellees.

Mr. Justice BREWER delivered the opinion of the court.

This case is controlled by the opinions in the four preceding cases ( supra).

There are one or two differences of fact, but nothing affecting the merits of the controversy. The Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe Railroad Company was incorporated by the state of Texas, but a part of its line was constructed through the Indian Territory under authority of an act of congress. The figures as to earnings, etc., are also different, but they tend to the same result, as to the reasonableness of the rates.

A like decree will be entered in this as in the former cases.[ Reagan v. Farmers' Loan & Trust Co 154 U.S. 420 (1894) ]
