Potomac Eteutrie Lighting Com
pany No Longer in the Fight.
The Potomac Electric Lighting Com
pany has withdrawn from its position and
will not continue its struggle to prevent
the United States Company from extend
ing its conduits along certain streets by
applying Tor an injunction to resuam ti.e
Commissioners from granting the desired
permit. When the United States Company
in securing the privilege granted It by
Congress to extend Its lines out to Congress
Heights announced that it would lay
the conduits along Ninth street along
which the Potomac Company already has
lights, the latter corporation served notice
that It would seek to enjoin and asked that
the permit be delayed.
Yesterday, however, the company noti
fied the Commissioners that it had decided
not to bring suit. No reason was given
nor wasit stated whether any furthereffnrt
would be made tooppos the United States
Compauy. President Crosby of the Poto
mas Company Is at present out of town
and no Information could be secured of
the other of ricers as to their plans.
The permit to the United States Company
allowlngitto extend Its conduitsto Congress
Heights from Ninth and Florida avenue
will be Issued today.
