The injunction against the City
Council to enjoin them from ac
cepting tho brick street work done
by Hancock & Co., of Louisville,
was tried before Judge J. M. Ben
ton, of Winchester, in this city
Friday. Under Judge Benton's
ruling, if ho had dissolved the in
junction then the citizens who
asked for the restraining order
would have been barred from fur
ther action or redress, as the court
has held many times that after a
Council has accepted work, unless
fraud was shown, they would not
interfere with the workings of that
body, but should he leave the in
junction in force the city then
could take the motion to dissolve
tho injunction to the Court of Ap
peals. He therefore held that the
injunction be sustained, and same
will bo tried before tho Court of
Appeals on next Friday on a mo
tion to dissolve the injunction.

The U. S. Senate has re-passed
the Pension appropriation bill,

The House is expected to approve

pension appropriations available
immediately. If the bill is passed
by the House, Major A. T. Wood,
of this city, pension agent at Lou
isville, will bo deprived of his
office, much to tho regret of his
host of friends in both parties.
