N. Castleman of the Gary common council, who are charged with violating an injunction, will be heard Saturday In the Porter circuit court at Valparaiso. The basis of the charge consists in the fact that the aldermen are alleged to have participated In laying the tracks of the Gary & Interurban rail way in January although an injunction forbade any such activity. Both Bow , ser and Cstleman deny that the vio lated the injunction and their first move will probably be the filing of an affidavit denying the contempt charge. Mr. Bowser has retained a large le gal force to assist him. Crumpacker Brothers and Dailey of Valparaiso and Attorney Sills of Gary. The maximum punishment for a contempt of court charge Is a fine of $500 and three months In. jail. Alderman Bowser sees the hand of his old enemy, K. Lewis Meyer, gen eral counsel of the South Shore inter - urban, behind the contempt move. Bowser recently fathered the South Fhore wire-cutting ordinance. The South Shore also wants to erect poles across the city to furnish power to the Gary & Southern and the alderman be lieves that the move is to whip him In to line.
