LONG IN LITIGATION.
People here are much Interested In the
cose of tho city of Durham against the
Southern Railway, argued yesterday and
to-day before Judge Purnell, of the Fede?
ral Court, In Raleigh. The city Is repre?
sented by Winston &v Fuller, Bo^ne &
(Biggs, Manning & Fou?hee. V. S. Bryant.
of Durham, and Captain W. A. Day, of
Raleigh. It Is the old fight over the Utle
to Peabody Street, which is Included In
the right of way to the North Carolina
Railroad, and which bos been in litigation '
fourteen years. The North Carolina road,
of which tho Southern is the ninety-year
leesee. had leased this street to the city
for thirty years. That lease has expired,
and the Southern wants possession. The
city objects, but holds the lease should
be continued. Colonel Andrews hae lot It
be known that no union depot will be
built here until the 100 feet on each side

there being no sheds for the number of
people who travel to stand under out of
the rain, and It Is the anxious wish of
everybody that the difficulty may be so
Adjudicated as will hasten a decent depot.
LEGISLATION ON QUESTION.

appointed a commltteo to go before the
Legislative Committee and urge the pas

forcing tho erection of a. depot here.

URGED TO REMAIN
Every Effort Made to Hold Rev. C. S.
. Blackwell in Wilmington.
(Special to The Timcs-Dlspatch.)
WILMINGTON, N. C. February 10.
As a result of a conference with the
Executive Committee? of the First Baptist
Church, which was augmented by half a
hundred of the most influential members
of the congregation, last night,-Rev. Cal?
vin S. Blackwell,-D. D., decided to wait
several days lopger .before making ; bis
linai decision as to whether or not he will
accept the call to the First Baptist
Church at Norfolk. It was generally be?
lieved, and ho as much as Intimated it
himself, that Dr. Blockwell's resignation
Would be accepted last night, but so much
pressure has been brought to bear to keep
dim In Wilmington he decided to hold the
matter in abeyance, and will probably not
give his decision In a few days. While
thore Is but little hope ot Dr. Blackwell
remaining here, the committee considers
this favorable. At the conference last
night the committee laid before him their
views, urging him to reconsider and with?
draw his resignation.
Probably the ono. thing that holds out
the strongest plea. to,. Dr. Blackwell le a
petition signed by. ICO young men of the
Atlantic Coast Line offices, who are mom
bere of all classes, sects and creeds, The
petition Is addressed to the Executive
Committee of tho church. After urging
that every influence be brought to bear
to eecuro the withdrawal of Dr. Black
well's resignation, it states that "no one
could ever estimate the great loss his de?
parture? would necessarily cause or inflict
upon the non-Chrlstlan boys employed in
tho clerical eervlce of the Atlantic Coast
Line Railway, with whom his personality
is a potent factor."
Dr. Blackwell would not commit hlm
?elf to The Times-Dispatch correspondent
to? day, except to say that his first decis?
ion had not been changed, but he is going
to reflect over the matter several days
beforo making tho final move.

and a prominent Republican, was at tho

lend a revolt against the Republican
"machine" in Virginia. "It la a trust,"
he'said. "I think so. and there are plenty
of us who think the same way. We think,
too, that Roosevelt has gone too far In
tho matter of tho negro. If the kind of
fight Is mado which I expect to be made,
or, at least, hope to be mado, you will
