Tho plaintiffs wore represented in Court hy
Attorney Higgins, Esq., and Chailos Gibbons,

The directors made a contract with John M.

road,) aud *150,000 in full paid certiticatos of
stock,making 6,000 shares. Tho bill then alleges
that Baumgardner was an associate with Harry
A Co., aud the capitalist for whom they really
acted. After the work was completed,the bonus
and 5080 shares of Htock were transferred to
Baumgartner, while Hheaff still holds 20 shares
It states further that the contract of Harry A Co.
not fulfilled,that the iron they furnished was
■of iuferior quality, and is now nearly worn out,
is unfit for use, aud unsafe, and must be
placed, although the irou on the 2d division, (to
which that ou the third division was to be equal)
was still good, after four years' use. The bill
then alleges that Hairy A Co.knew of this inferi
ority, and bought the iron at low rates, aud thus
knowingly grossly defrauded the Company.
The bill goes on to Htate that tho mortgage ou
tho road for *400,060, held by the Htato, is liable
to foreclosure,whenever the interest remains
paid, and that the interest duo December 31,
1871, is not iikoly to be paid. The road is alle

The plaintiffs therefore «hk

The counsel for the plaintiffs then read a
number of affidavits in support of their
plaint. These include affidavits by J. 8. I'retty

, and Goueral Superintendent :

After the reading cf the plaint ill's' affidavits,
tbe counsel for the defence read the joint affida
vit of Messrs. Banmgurdner, Harry and Hheaff.
They deny all tho material allegati
plaintiffs, and assert that they well aud faith
fully exocuted their contract. They utate that
after tho completion of the work it was duly
amined hy the President, Chief Engineer, and
Directors of the road, and Judge Houston gave a
letter of testimonial to Mr. Harry, certifying to
the "skill, ability, and fidelity" with which lie did
his work. They say that Harry and Sheaff

K. Reed furnished the capital required ; that the
railroad i
but *90,000, being less than
whole work done under the coutract. They
the quality required,
similar to that used by the Wilmington & R
iug road, it being in both cases manufactured by
Atkins A Bro., of Pottsville. The President and
other officers of the road had ample ODport unity
to tost the iron, and that Joseph Hyde, Master
of tho Machinery of the Company, did make a
test of the quality, of a bar at Wilmington, and
pronounced it satisfactory. They
they repeatedly asked tbe President, and other
officers of the road to examine the rails while
being manufactured at Pottsville. They say that
the irou is not cheap aud iuferior, and that tho
allegations as to its mjured couditi
goratod and inaccurato. The rails
, hut in fair condition, and require
further repair than 45 It» iron usually docs.
The roling stock they say, has sometimos
been too heavily loaded,causiug increased wear.
They admit that the *12,000 interest on tho
Htate loan, due December 31, 1871, has not yol
been paid, but say that it will be before the
expiration of tbo 30 day's grace, if the Directors
uot interfeared with by this injunction.
They say tbe debt of the Company, independent
of the State Mortgage, is about *35,000,of which
only *22,500. i
*10,000
time, so that *12,500 alone is of pressing impor
tance. They say that the allegations of tho
plaiutiffs as to the condition of the road are
grossly exagerated. It needs
Tho defendants also say that Bauingarduer
holds stock not issued for the payment of Harry
A Co., that Hheaff and the Delaware de
fendants have none of it, and that J. H. Gibbons
holds 250 shares of it. They produce an agree
ment made by Jarnos S Gibbous to purchase
Baumgardners stock at *20. per share, (which
agreement was not fulfilled by Gibbous,) and &
letter sent by Dr. J. H. Prettyman offering to
purchase of Baumgardnor at *10 per share. They
allege that the remaining stock authorized by
the charter could uot be sold at. half the par
value, but would be sacrificed if so sold. They
deny that any meetings of tbe Hoard of Direct
have been prevented, and aver that all
essary meetings have been held, aud allege that
Mr. Gibbons has become nufit to act as President,
and that tbe financial affairs of tbe Company
bave been entrusted to tbe care of a special
Finance Committee.
Other affidavits woro road iu support of this,
sworn to by C. 0. Htookley, a director of the
road ; Myers C. Couwoll, a former Engineer of
tbo road : Joseph Hyde, Master of Machinery ;
and Jacob Y. Foulk, Secretary of tho Board of
Directors. Mr. Stockley, in reference to the
resolution of the Directors not to issue the
maiuing stock, says he believed that the Direc
tors had no power to issue it below par. Mr.
Hyde, in reference to the present condition of
the rails, says that they do not require removal.
He also says that tho President and the Super
intendent have not directed any decrease in the
speed of trains upon the road. The usual speed
is 18 to 20 miles per hour, including stops.

This last fact is an important one in estimating

tho starch and gum of tho fruit, and distin
guishes our products from the best samples
