Mr. Flynn's Suit to Annul the Lense to Oo

Argument was had before Supreme Court
Justice Dickey in Ilrooklvn yesterday on the
motion made on behalf of l'atrlck H, Hynn to
continue tho tempornry Injunction restraining
the Nnssau I'.lectrlo Itallroad Compuny from
leasing Its system to the llrooklyn Height
Hnllroad fJomcany for a year from April fl. and
as a. result the Injunction was dissolved. James
C. Church, who appeared for Mr. I'lyun. said
that the Xnssau Company had JO.OUO.OOO of
preferred and $7,000,000 of common stock nnd
that Mr. Flinn ownod $1,500,000 of common
"Certain pooplo Interested la tho Haold

the Coney Islnnd and Gravesend Company and
who was nt tho meeting of tho directors when
the leaee was voted upon, gaie no intimation
that his company wns willing to nay anything
for tho lease. He said that President lloweu
deposed that Mr. lhnu's holdings did not ex
Mr. Sheohnn said there was a deficit of J'JilO -TOO
in tho Ni'ssiu Company Inst year and if
the proper entries hud been mado tho dollclt
would havo been much grenter. "The Hrook
lin ltapld Transit Compnni." he continued,
owns SO per cent of the st ick of tho Nnssau
Compaiii and so is naturally tho most Inter
ested Wo did not buy that stock under false
impressions either. The gentlemen who
talked about the profits of the NatsUu did sot
fool us In tho least "
Ho said that Hie Hrooklin Heights Company
was to rav $l.riO,(KHj n year In cash, pay all the '
taxes and fixed charges, anil it was estimated
that tho lease was actually worth to tho Nas
sau Company nbout SWA-tlii. Mr Hlieehan
said he was positive that If tho Nassau Com- '
pany operated its road for nnother year tinder
the increased competition that it would not
be able to cam Its llxed charges,
' How do ion expect to do it'" asked Justice
Diikov. "Ilv better management?"
"Ves." renlled Mr Shechan. "The joint op
eration of tho road nnd the fact that they will
not run In competition will make it cheaper "
Justice Dickey suggested that the matter be
tried next month, nnd as this was accepted he
said that he would no, continue the injune
Hon, ns this might demoralize one sUe or the
other. The case will go to trial the llrst Mon
day in May.

Sir Henry Bcholfleld. Knt , Bnc , who died In
i Jsrsoy City ou Thursday, was an actiis figure
more than n score of icnrs ago In nn Interna-
, tlonnl episode of a sort which. In varying de
grees. Great Hrltalu has mado familiar In tho
I world's history. He wai Mr Scholfleld before
, the Incident nnd became Sir Henry by reason
of his action In It. He was a natlie Lngllsh
man who spoilt a pirt of his early life In Can
uda. marrying n Miss Cockeln, n daughter of
Capt. Cockeln of Halifax. In 1H7'J ho became
I Hritlsh Consul in Chmtomnla, remaining as such
until 18S0. and from June to November. 1870.
, being In chnigs of the Hritlsh Legation there.
Among the Hrltons then in Guatemala was
I John Magoe. a coftee planter and British Vice
Consul, who prospered nnd has slnco lived In
l'nrls. Mr. Magee was the representative of a
Hritlsh company which had acquired certain
I wharf rights at tho port of San Jose", but ho did
not get on well. It Is said, with Gen. Ruflno
Uarrios, then l'resldent of tho republic.
Hnrrlos sent to be commandant of the port
a man named Gonzales, who, according to Mr.
Scholllold's friends, carried orders to harass
Magee. Finding something unsatisfactory to
him one day about the wharf In which Mageo
was Interested, he sent for Maceo to como to
him. Mages sent back word that he was busy
then nnd could not come. Th commandant
bent again, and, Magee not responding, sent a
squad of soldiers lo arrest him. The rngllsh
man was taken bcfire tho commandant, who
ordersil him fixed face downward to the
around, so to suiter In publlo 200 strokss with
npiecoof aane. The beating was inflicted
with eucli offect that nlturward shreds of Mi
gee's clothing had to bs extrnctod with In
struments from hi body.
Gonzales had ordered the telegraph office
closed before the punishment of Mo,gce. A
telegraph operator who had been Indebted to
Mr. Scholflold for his place oi ened the office
nnd sent a message lo Mr. Scholfleld at tho
capital. Mr. Scholfleld went to l'resldent Har

made, after somo sort of Inquiry, to the effect
that the Hrltisli official's version of it rrnsn t

I tho episode would put It earlier in the j ear. as,
according to that, his messenger sent the ca
ble despatch to Gladstone, who went out of of

According to this ston, word came from Mr
Gladstone that Jialkan difficulties were occu
pung so much attention just then that Hrl'ish
residents' eases would haie to wait a while.
I'pon receiptor this answor Consul bcholfleld
sent the messenger back to I'anainu to cibJo
his resignation. All this took time, nnd in
the meanwhile Disraeli had come Into olllce,
and his reply to Scholfleld was that tlio Hritlsh
Pacific Bquadrcn Had been ordered a, .tho

to be demanded
