Complainants further aver that they are
inMrmed, believe and charge ihat said or
der was with such corrupt and fraudulent
purpose obtained fiom said court by the
following BseajM, to-wit: They, the said
conspirators, Bowen and Lewii, sought a
time when the regular presiding Judge of
said court was absent and procured one
Webster, a clerk in the employ of the
said Lew is, to bo elected presidiug J udga
of -'id court, where, having tha siid or
der hastily prepared, they with indecent
haste, and without mature consi.ierstiou

Bowen, as he assumes also, proceeded

like process of wtiich appointment no re

further aver that, prior to this time, the
said Wilshire, having providtHl himself
srRtl one suare of slock, and the said
I'-iucn, their co-conspirator, being thus
armed and prepared w ith the orders of ap
pointment iiforesaid, and the said Lewis
being also the owner of one share of sto.-k.
as th. y alleged further, combined mid
coniixii'-raieil w ith one Jackson E. Sickles.
atid said other defendants, to hold in the
city of Little Rock pretended and !
fraudulent chHttion of said corporation,
Aes,riinglv, the said Sickles falsely as-
sm to" act as the Secreta.-v of said
c-ir-.uiralion, on the 27th dav of Cctobcr i
laat, published in the Hepitbli-'w news-
paper, printed and published iu said city
of Little Kock, and iu an obscure place
therein, a pretended notice that said cor- :
norsiii.n would, on the sixth dsv of this
inontn i .oeiuu-r, a
D. 1H19, at the office ot the
Liltle Hock, Pine Bluff aud New Orleans
Railroad Company, a place almost, if not
wholly unknown in said city of Little
Rock, MM an election for Directors of
said corporation, which said notice was
not published In any other papers. Com
plainants further aver that prior to such
iraunuicm proceeoing 1. ;..n ueeu me
uniform custom with said corporation to
publish notices for meetings of stockhold-
ers 'or the purpose of holding elections in
one paper published in each of the cities
of Liltle Hock, Arkansas, and Memphis,
Tennessee. Complainants further aver
that there was no election holden aw pre
tended 10 lie holden by said conspirators
on said sixlh davof November, but on the
tenth day of said month the said conspir
ators in "the further prosecution rf their
said wicked, fraudulent and corrupt con
spiracy did hold a pretended election lor
filiate sra of said cornoralion. at which
they pretendedr. to have elected as such J
the said F. -V Mahan. Benjamin
Brown, James M. Lewis, Wm. W. Wil
shire sud one Joseph Lenow, the last
named of whom referred to never know
ing that said pretended election was frau
dulent and void, aud thereupon the said
conspirators as complainants believo and
charge to tie true without his knowledge,
approbation or consent themselves, pre
tended to cleat the said Robert 0. Wallace
a director, to till the pretended vacancy
of the said Lenow, and they aver that the
said Robert C. Wallace w:to not present
nor has he at any time been present with
said conspirators in any of their nefarious
transactionssincesaid pretended elections.
Complainants further aver that said de
fendants having thus fraudulently and
corruptly pretended to constitute them
selves Directors of said corporation in
the further prosecution of their sail con
spiracy, pretended to elect the said F. M.
Mahan President of said railroad, and
have since then pretended and no w pre
tend and declare themselves to lie the le
gally constituted President and Directors
o! s ud corporation, and are demanding of
said complainants to yield up to them
their said offices and the possession of
said railroad, ils archives, assets and
property of every description, and have
threatened and endeavored to take the
same from complainants by fores and
fraud, in pursuance of such purpose insti
tuted first in Ihe Circuit Court of said
c mnty ol Pulaski a proceeding in the na
ture of a quo warranto against complain
ants, and procured from the Hon. John
McClure, Associate Justice of said Su
preme Court, his hat as such for .111 in
junction to be issued against complain
ants without any notice to them ot any
application therefor and without any
equitable proceediugs therefor pending,
a.id when complainants and their attor
neys refused to obey the same because of
its illegality aud after they had failed
to procure lrom the honorable the
judge of the Circuit Court, before
w hom said order of injunction was made
returnable an attachment for contempt,
th procured the said Associate Justice
to issue his fiat vacating his said previous
order for said injunction, and so aban
doned the same without instituting any
equitable proceedings thereof, aud I here
upon immediately procured from the
said Associate Justice, without any no
tice to the complainants, his fiat to tho
Clerk of the said Supreme Court, direct
ing him to issue an order of injunction
against complainants, their attorneys,
agents and employees, enjoining them
from exercising or attempting to exer
cise the offices of President aud Directors
of said railroad company, or the rights or
privileges belonging thereto, and from
withholding from them tho possessit'ii of
the pn perty and oitocts of said railrosd
company, as will fully appear by a duly
authenticated copy of said order of in
junction here exhibited as exhibit C.
Complainants further aver that they,
their attorneys and employees, in like
manner refused obedience to said last
named 11 eg 1! order of injunction, where
upon the said conspirators and defend
ants, (except the said Robert C. Wallace),
with or by md through persons by them
thereto Instigated, attempted to take ios-
beasion 01 saltl railroad aud the engine
and rolling 3toek thereof, then at the de
pot near said city of Little Rock by force,
failing in which they, without serving
them with any rule or notice to answer
tor any ulleged contempt, procu red from
the said John McClure a writ .if attach
ment, by virtue of which Beverly D. Wil
liams, the general agent and superintend
ent of said road in the employ of com
plainants and others of their employees,
including engineers, were bv the .Sheriff
of saiil county arrested and taken into
custody, and taken away Inmi their sev
eral posts of duty, which said arrests
were, and as complainants believe and
charge to be purposely so timed, as to
keen them away from the train on said
road at the hour at which it should start
East, with the special purpose of seizing
possession thereof by said conspirators.
Complainants farther aver that to be re
lieved from this illegal and oppressive ar
rest, the said employees of complainants
procured to be issued by the honorable,
the judge of this court, writs of habeas
corpus, and pending tho inquiry into the
samo case of tho said Beverly D. Wil
liams, they, the said defendants, except
said Wallaee, procured one John R.
Montgomery! Attorney-General for the
said State, of Arkansas, and also the at
torney of said conspirators, to institute
in the Supremo Court of said State
proceedings by writ of quo warranto,
and calling upon complainants to
answer thereiu before s;iid Supreme
court ou the sixth day of December next.
Complainants further aver that the line
of said road extends from opposite Little
Rock., on the north bank or the Arkansas ;
river in said county of Pulaski, through !
the counties of 1'. . I 'niroe, St. Fran- i
cis and Crittenden, and the said defend- i
ants proclaim and declare that their pur- '
pose still is to persist in and urge tneir !
claim to eejoy toe iranuais i saiu roou,
aid posses t :,.":io:ves mens if. Ana
comnlainants tear, and thins they have
good reason to fear, that they, in pursn-
auee of arraigning and harrassiug com-
plaiiiants. will, as they have thus far
failed in the execntiou of their 'nefarious
project in said county of Polakkl insti
tute other and like prdire'nlings in some or
all of said counties through which the
line of said mad passes, and tlier -fiy by
mere multiplicity of suits and ltclgatlon
soannovand embarrass complainants in
the discharge of their duties us wholly to
Briuklev, had made certain
! arraugemeuts. They state that said road,
if complete.!, will be a great and valuable
thoroughfare of the greatest importance
; and interest to the State of Arkansas;
, that over it nre now transported the mails
j of tho United States and a large number
of passengers, notwithstanding nearly
' one whole sectiou is now incomplete, and
, the services thereof have to be performed
by stage. Compiaiuants furlheraver that
' the whole of the stock in said company
; ever pretended to be ow n'd by said de-
leiidauts is as follows, to-wit : V. M. Ma
; ban, one share; B.C. Brown.onp share;
i W. W. Wilshire, one share; J. ii. Levis,
lone share; and Robert C. aliuce
a-f. tte) a
shares, in all of r!-e c::n:iQi
siven hundred doll trs out of slock issued
i to the amount of two millions eighteen j
thousand one hundred and thirtv-three
dollars. When we look at this statement
we can but feel as:ounded at the brazen !
impudence of those with such a pittance i
of the interest involved so fraudulently
arrogate to themselves the right to con- j
trol the affairs and property ot said cor
poration; and it is made but the inoro
glaring by the fact that thcro was
represented fu said corrupt and fraudu
lent pretended election less than one
eighth part of the stock of said corpora
tion, the power to vote which was ob
tained and used by fraud and corruption.
And vet more brazenly and designe 'lv
to 10b complainants and the other le.T i
mate stockholders in said corporation, of '
their law ful franchise and property, and
to Fecure to themselves the bene fits of th- !
same, or to extort Irom theui large sue. s
of money for the pun liaso of peace, aud
that their acts thus far committed have
paralyzed lli- l ie i.t and nearly destroyed
the hopes of the corporation for the com
pletion of said road, and if they are longer
peruiilteil to OOOtiaiaa in these or like
acts, ail hope for the completion of said
! 'i -stroyed, the pub.io credit
ot the whol" Slate impaired, and the in
jury to eomplaiiiauts and others, tho
stockholders iu. aud the creditors of, Faid
railroad, will be irreparable. Wherefore,
