The New York, Lake ErU 'and Western Coal and" Railroad Com pany i;s. The .Pittsburgh and New York Rail road:" Company, E. E. Willard, J. II. Hagerty. - - . In Elk County Common Tlcas. No. 1, September Term 1881, In Equity. Opinion and Order of the Court on the Application for a Preliminary Injunction. By assent of counsel, the affidavits entitled in the case of defciKlants versus plaintirft in No. 2, September term, 1881, are to bo considered as if entitled in tliis case. The plain tlfl, as reason for a pre liminary injunction, alleges the sur vey, location and adoption of the route of a railroad from or near Alton, in M'Kean county, to or near Kersey, in Elk county, and from thence to or near Falls creek, on the Allegheny Valley railroad; that such routo be tween Johnson burg and Ridgway Is along the north and west side of the Clarion river, on the side of hills so precipitous that it Is possible to con struct thereon but one railroad; that defendant Intends by force, &c, to prevent the construction of plaintiff's road, and are taking steps to carry such intention Into effect, and that collisions are likely to occur between the laborers and servants of the re spective parties, provoking breaches of the peace, Ac; that the defendant's Interference with and obstruction of plaintiffs rights will make the build ing of plaintiffs road impossible, and do It irreparable Injury. On the argument, the only question presented was tlio nllou;ed r 1 1 1 of the plitiiitiir. as against, the defendant, to that portion' of the route between Jolinsonburg and Uldgway, on the north and west shies of the Clarion river; and, as bearing upon this ques tion, a variety of propositions were discussed, embracing, among others, a denial of thccorpoiatc existence of the plaintiff, and, if existijig, a denial of t lie riuht. to locate and build the roads, ns set forth in the plaiutilfs bill, to gether with a denial of the asserted right of the plaintiff to the route, as claimed by It, between Johustinburir and Ridgway. By act of Assembly, approved April 8, 1870, Thomas L. Kane and others, anil their associates, were constituted a body corporate by the name of "The Wilcox and Howard Hill Improve ment Company," with power to hold laud in fee simple, or by lease, in the counties of M'Kean anil Elk. and to construct, equip and manage a rail road or railroads lending from any of their lands to the Philadelphia and Erie railroad, or to the Allegheny Valley rail mail, or connecting any two or more railroads which may lie constructed by them in either or both of said counties. The act confers on the corporation all the powers and privileges of any and all general rail road laws of theConimonwealth; also, the riglit to receive, in payment of subscriptions to the stock, any lands situate in the counties of M'Kean, Cameron and Elk, along or in the vicinity of the works they are author ized to construct, and to purchase, re ceive, hold, lease, and mortgage and sell, all such lands as may lie sold, subscribed, donated or otliersvise granted to them. June 2S, 18S1, the name of "The Wilcox and Howard Hill Improve ment Company'' was changed to "The New York. Lake Erie and Western Coal and Railroad Company," by decree of the court of common pleas of M'Kean county. . Upon the evidence presented by the parties, we come to the conclusion that the plaintiff is an existing corpo ration, as claimed in the 11 rst para graph of the bill, with the rights and powers as claimed in the second para graph, and that it had and has the right to locate niui construct the rail road or railroads upon the route and between the points as claimed in the third paragraph, subject to the restric tion that it may not interfere with the location or mute previously surveyed, marked and adopted by any other cor poration authorized to locate and con struct a railroad between the same points, or intermediate points, on the smiie. route. Tills brings us to the (Uestioii had the plaintiff located the line of its road between Jolinsonburg and Ridgway before the defendant lo cated its road between the same point? Juno 27, lfc&l, the defendant com pany was organized under the general railroad laws of the .Slate. It appears by the affidavit of E. K- Willard, the engineer in charge, that, commenc ing on the 2d of July and ending the 1'th July, 1881, the route of defend ant's road, was located, and between Jolinsonburg and Ridgway was evi denced hy a continuous line of stakes, aud that ail clianucs and revisions im portant had theu been made; that the work of clearing and grading on the line was commented on the 2d July, and continued down lo the time of the argument, excepting a few days, when restrained by order of court. A prima facia case of right, clear of reasonable doubt, ought always to be shown to justify an injunction before a full and deliberate investigation is had. Does it appear beyond reason able doubt that the plaintiff located its railroad on the route now in dispute before the defendant located its road? The claim that it did is denied in tlie affidavits presented by defendant. The affidavits of plaintiff' allege such location us carlv as 1872, made by 'The Wilcox and Howard Hill Im provement Company." The affida vit .!' lU-t'cmliifllB Utrujr MJCli lOOltllUJI, and E. E. Willard, under whose su pervision the surveys for the last named company (or Thos. L. Kane, its president.) seem to have been made in 1871 Siud 1872, by his affidavit denies any survey or location theu made on the north and west side of the Clarion river between Jolinson burg aud Ridgway. With these, contradictory atlldavits before lis, we are not able to say that there is no reasonable doubt that plaiutilfs road was located upon the route in dispute in 1872. On the con trary, we must suy we ure left In doubt upon that point. It appears by the atlldavits presented by plaintiff that in the fall of 1878 one O. W. Barnes, an engineer in the em ploy of the New York, Lake Erie and Western railroad, or its president, commenced the survey of a route for a railroad from Alton, in M'Kean county, to or near Falls creek, on the Allegheny Valley railroad, hy the way of Jolinsonburg und Ridgway; that the line of the road between Jolinsonburg and Ridgway was fixed, marked and determined by stakes driven in the ground in a solid man ner, and properly marked and num bered; that the location thus made between Jolinsonburg and Ridgway is in almost all respects identical with that adopted by the plaintiff; that in making that survey the said Barnes was aided and guided by maps, Held notes and other data furnished by the Wilcox and Howard Hill Improve ment Company; that the said line be tween Jolinsonburg und Ridgway was fully completed and located, prepara tory to the building of a railroad thereon, In the month of October. A. D. 1880; that the Wilcox and Howard Hill Improvement Company pur chased from the New York, Lake Erie and Western railroad the sur veys, maps, explorations Brul locations thus made, and on the l3Ui May, 1881, by formal action of the board of direc tors, adopted the line thus located by Barnes as the line of its own road. . By what right th New York. Like Erie and Western railroad made its survey and location, for a railroad, does not appear. Whether that com pany had or had i not . authority to locate and construct a railroad on the disputed route, docs; not appear... If It had no such authority, it may admit of doubt whether, the Wilcox and Howard Hill Improvement Company could, by more resolution of its board of directors, adopf jt.tio location and line thus located,, fa, iis' to give it priority to a location niaclc, after Bilcli resolution, by another 'company mak ing an actual survey (ff the same line, and indicating such survey by proper muuumentson the ground. Wliotlier the relations of the Wilcox and How ard Hill Improvement Company to the New ork, i Luke . Erie and western railroad company were such that the survey und location by the loiter company would enure to the benefit of the former (now plainti!!"), depends upon the existence or non existence of facts In regard to which we are at present but imperfectly in formed Fearing that the granting of the preliminary injunction might work greater wrong thai the denial of it, and without intimating my opinion on the merits of the case, we merely decide that the eas. as it appears on the bill nod nflidavits and counter atlldavits, does not, in our judgment, present such a clear case of right as to justify us in awarding such prelimi nary injunction, and. is therefore .re fused.

Without intimating any opiuion on the merits of the controversy between the parties, and being in doubt from the affidavits' and counter-affidavits whether tho plaintilfor defendant was first in adopting the route in dispute, we merely decide (u!ul for the masons more fully stated in the opinion this day tiled in No. 1, September term, 181,) that the evidence -does not show such a clear ease of right as to justify us in awarding a preliminary injunc tion, aud is tnerefore refused. Wm. D. Bkown, P. J. Row Arthur was Nominated. The Philadelphia Press has this to say about the way Arthur became Vice-President:,' The story of General Arthur's nomi nation and his own feeling about It is one of singular interest. After that tu multous and thrilling scene when the Chicago Convention surged away from both Uraut and Blaine and named General Ciarficld as it standard bearer, it adjourned till evening to consider the question of Vice Presi dent. All sides agreed that the cau didate must come from New York and that, as the President represented the auti Grant' division', the Vice President must be' chosen from the Grant element. Three conspicious names were canvassed Levi P. Mor ton, now Minister to France, General Stewart L. Woodford, and General Chester A. Arthur,, ,.,V,hen the New York delegation met tn pass-upon the subject Mr. Morton and General Wood ford withdrew and General Arfhur was selected ns Us choice by a very decided vote. But then those who were In the iuner circle discovered lhat a serious obstacle had been en countered, and that - was the very earnest and emphatic objection of the proposed candidate himself. He wanted to succeed Kernan in the U. S. Senate, and hud. the support of all the leading Republicans, making his election nmost a. .certainty. The result of the Presidential contest was in doubt, and the Vice Presidency was but a place of dignified retirement' for four years, even if lie did get it. Under such circumstances it is not surprising that he shrank from the proposed nomination, and for nearly two hours he resisted the appeals which were made to him. But there was a very cariKt desire ou the part of the friends of General Garfield, rather than his own, that he should go upon the ticket. 'They felt the vital importance of carrying New York, and realized that no man could contribute so much to that result as General Arthur, with his thorough knowledge of the organization. Gov enor Deunison, of Ohio, among others, was very earnest in' his plea. The duty of accepting was put to General Arthur as a matter of patriotic obliga tion ; and finally, against the protest of Seuator Conkling even to the last, ho reluctantly yielded his own wishes and allowed the completion of the ticket of Garfield aud Arthur. The country knows how earnestly, after accepting the trust, he threw himself into the canvass, and how much he did to carry not only New York but other doubtful States. And now, by a dark tragedy that no one deplores more deeply than himself, though he lost the Seuatorship he becomes Presi dent. Choice sweet corn 15 cents per can at Morgester's. Choice natural color pickles, large and best in the market, only 12 cents per dozen at Morgester's. A full line of choice teas of all kinds, from 50 to 90 cents per pound, at Morgester's. . . The Unrfleld Monument. Cleveland, Sept 27. The Garfield- Monument Fund Committee has issued the following: STd ihe People of the IMted Slates: The movement to' secure funds for the erection of a monument over tho grave of James A. Garfield Is being responded to from all sections of tho country, easti'west, soutli and north. In order to make It popular and suc cessful it is desirable and it will be necessary for the citizens of different States to immediately organize. ' The committee hereby requests all national banks, private bankers, savings banks, newspapers and postmasters to call attention to the movement by posting notices and otherwise, and to receive contributions and remit the same to the First National Bank of Cleveland, which has been designated as the treasurer of tho fund, aud also to send tho name and postofllco address of all contributors. These sums will all be recorded iu books that will bo pre served In the monument. All contri butions will bo receipted for by the Second National Bank. J. H. Wade, H. B.

The work of collecting the draperies for the Michigan sufferers began this morn ing. Tho amount' collected up to a late hour tills forenoon, as far as could be learned, was rather behind what was expected by the relief committee. Ou many of the largo stores upon Broadway, where the largest quantity of the material was used, the merch ants have not as yet removed tho em blems of sorrow. A great number of storkeepcrs have sent their draperies to the depositories by their own wag ons to save the collectors trouble, in stead of writing for the wagons to be sent around. The amount collected tills morning tilled two double trucks. It is the intention of the committee to send at once to Michigan all that is available for making up into gar ments, while the remainder will be sold at auction and the proceeds in. money forwarded for tbe relief of the peoplo who have been mado destitute by the fires in Michigan. Mr. W. O. Dewey, of No. 29 Chamber street, who is the secretary of tlie committee ap pointed by the New York relief com mission to superintend the eollec lion of the goods, said this morning that the bulk of the goods would probably boicceived to-morrow. Be sides the material sent, the sale of tlie mourning emblems will probably reach $20,000. If you have the chills take Pernna. If you expect or fear them take i'eruua.
