Putmiiue Company. Injunction Suit
Up for Trial.
The catie of the I'otomac Liectrio Po.ver
Company, against the United States Elec
tric Lighting Company and the District
Commissioners wan up beorc Judge Hag
ncr in qult-v court No. 2 yesterday for the
reading of the answers of tin defendants.
A petiMcn -was Died by tlie Potomac Com
pany two -wee:s ago for an Injunction to
prevent the United State- Company from
coninhtlmr the Ninth street conduit, "or
which it recently received a permit from
tlie Commissioners; and also for an in
junction against the Commissioners gran:;
ing any further permits to the company.
As will be remembered, the United States
Compan obtained the permit to put down
the Nintl frtreet conduit only after -a biWir
fight bv the rival company. Scon aft'r
the United States Company asked tor
another permit jo extend all it other north
bound conduits, several in number. This
permit the Commissioners -were consider
ing. The answers were filed yesterday by
Attorneys Ueddington and Jere "SVilsonXor
the United States Company, aud S. T
Thomas the attorney Tor tlie District.
Messis A. S. Wcrthlngtoa and J. J. Dar
lington 'epresented the I'otomac Company.
Messrs. A. S. AVorthington and J. J. Dar
lington represented the Potomac Company.
The reading of the answers occupied
nearly all day
TJio answer of thi United States Company
leclted all the arguments made by the
com pan 5 before the commissioners iHst
n,ontl when the application for the permit
was made, ,a full report of which -wasinade
in The Tiuies.
Iu rec ited the fact that a "vigoroas pro
tet was n.ade by the Totoniac Company
at the lime ,the -permit wat.as.ked for.
In brief, if is hinted that the acts of
June 11, 1 5SG, and March 3, 1S97, are full
authority of law for the extension of the
Nintb street conduit, and that the ex
tensions sought are absolutely uecesbary
ir the company is tolighttlia subdivisions
north of Florida avenue, as the acts pro
Aide. It is contended that the extensions
are nor f-ought for the purpos; of get
ting vires -within the city. The an
swer also says that the Commission
ers liavo in their possession letters
from Ponator AlcMIllnn and Congressman
Alahlon ritney, the people moat largely
responsible for the electric light legisla
tion, stating the meaning of the acts .re
ferred ii to be as the Commissioners have
Tlie statement was made in the bill of
the Potomac Company that the United
States people had expressed tho inten
tion not to ak for any more north bound
conduits K the Ninth street conduit weie
granted tiimn by the Commissioner.
This the United States Company's an
It is denied that ample conduits Tor the
lighting of the subdivisions in question
were already constructed prior to the ap
plication for the Ninth street permit, it
Is alsc denied that the digging i.p of the
streets lcquired for the laying of condui-s
by the Umted States Compnny.inpuTsua ice
of ltt r-pplication, constitutes a public nais
ance or that the digging up of the streets
would permanently injure existing nav-i-ments.
One other interesting assertion Js made
that may cause considerable comment in
The United States Company say6 that.the
occupation of certain dtrcets and avenues
by the Potomac Company is prohibited, and
contrary to law; that all contracts ever
entered into between thelate board of Com
missioners and tlie Potomac Company for
the lighting of any public highway ly,ng
east or Rock Creek, except in Eckin.j'.on,
were made without authority of law .iiid
are illegal and void.
