Yeaterday in tlio United Stales Circuit Court, I
belore Judge Blalcbford, the argument on tbe mo ,i

Field wesocouasl lor Ui Erie Hallway Company,
and Mr. Soutbmayd and ex-Attornsy-Generst Hoar
for the Engliab shsreholders. t
Mr, D, D. Field, In resuming bla argument nn the j i
part of the Erie Company, ajibmltled Dial the bill
praying for an injunction waa of an anomalous char
acler, that It wss neither original nor supplemental,
and should not be allowed In any ot lu features.
He claimed that It should have been framed ss sap
plementsl to tbe original bill of Healli and others, '
which was still undetermined In this Courts bnt II
waa not framed In that manner, neither was It
framed for any Independent purpose. If the bill
was properly framed aa an Independent proceeding,
It null falli because the Court bad no powrr ovir j
the Internal affilrs of Btste corporstlons, nor Indeed , X
any power, except as a court of equlir. Tae Court
could nut determine wbo were or who were not la
corporators of the city of New York or corporitora ,
of the Bank ol England. The neorsaarr partlra 'if
were wanting to the bill. Neither the holders of
Ihe iJO.OOd aharea nor Mr, Coleman were before tha - )
Court. ! i
ERIE rOLLOWINO LEOAL APVICI.
Mr. Field thsn took up Ihe quetlon of reglsterlnf
the stock, aud contended that aa the roglalratlun
wai Instituted by the Erie Itallwsy Company for tta
own convenience, that company might Icontinue or
reiokeauch registration at Its pteisute, and tla
Court could not deal with It as a thing permanently i
Inatltuled. He argued thttthe Erie Company bad
power under the General llailroad Act of New York
to Issue convertible bonJe for the purpose of com- I
pitting, finishing, or running their railroad. Thia I
point bad been adjudicated In the Supreme Court '
of the Stile ol New York In the one ot Belmont ve.
too line ltillroid Company, SI Ilaraour, 171, and
alao In tae ease ol Jcnks vi.lthe New York Central
Hatlroad Company, referred to In the first nimea
case. He denied thst tne convertible bonds were
soam or orotence got up for the purpose of menu
fscturlng and Issuing lU.mjO shsres, spurious seal
Irauditlent. That allegation waa fully met and de
nliKi by the amoavlta read in the case, whlcn show
thst these convsrllule bonds were Issued In a legal
and proper manner under n resolution ul the Exeeu '
tie Committee of the Erie Hallway Company. The) ',
Board of Directors ol Erie were advised In that
metier by 1
SKVEBIL LEADINQ LAWTSILS, '
and among others by counsel who now represent '
the English stockholders. i
Aller reiemng at crest length lo vsrlous other I
points In the esse, which hire already been discus
sed snd publlsbeJ, Mr. Field closed his argumeut bp
sutlng thai no sufficient srouud had been msde oul
lor granting the injunction.
Mr. Hoar summed up slid closed the irtumenl lot
behalf ol Heith and Kaphael lb a brief addreia, not
occupying more than a quarter of an hour. Us aim
ply denied the propositions ol counsel for Erie, and
elated that 11 the Injunction prayed tor wera not
rranled, Plsk, Gould, and the Erie Company would
be able to accomplish allthe ends Ihey deli.ed, and
Ibua deprive Ihe Engllah stockholders of Ui lr Just
rights and claims.
