etbook was placed In a United States

NEW MOvE IN AIR LINE CASE.
Attorney Groner Questions the Juiisdic
tion of the Portsmouth Court.
Norfolk, Oct. 1!).?The tight between
the present management of the Seaboard
Air bine and the syndicate headed by
Thonias F. Ryan, of New York, for the
control of that system of railroad, as?
sumed a new phase to-day, when an at?
tack was made on the Injunction granted
in September by Judge Prentis, of the
circuit conrt, restraining Ryan and h;s
associates from voting their stock at the
recent annual meeting. The injunction
was the only barrier to Mr. Ryan's elc -t
ing a management of his own, for he had
divided his larire holdings, the Seaboard's
bill of complaint allege', into small por?
tions, which were held by his friends and
Owing to the peculiar voting arrange?
ments of the Seaboard Air Line,"a minor?
ity of the stock can control the road if it
is voted individually. The clause was
in sorted in the charter for the protection
? >f^ small stockholders, and Mr. Ryan
shrewdly took advantage: of its previs?
ions, but owing to the injunction he did
not vote his stock. His attorney, 1). Law?
rence Groner, to-day, however, filed in
the circuit court of the city of Ports?
mouth a plea as to the jurisdiction of
that court in granting the it junction on
the ground that the parties enjoined are
non-resident:', and therefore not within
the jurisdiction of the court. The i ur
pose of the plea is to prevent the perpet
nation of the injunction when the matter
again comes up next month.
