After careful investigation of the easeIiitortiued CInformed
Informed you that In my opinion proceedings

First because the restraining order referred

Second tHcaiiso If the court had authority
thority to issue a restraining order In n caseof
of this kind the order actually leaned wnsbroader
broader than warranted by the bill uponwhich
which it was founded and to that extentunauthorized
