INTEREST CENTERS TODAY IN RAIL CHIEF'S FIGHT TO DIS SOLVE INJUNCTION FISH SE- SURED TO TIE UP STOCK COINTROL OF ROAD HINGES ON OUTCOME FISH BY SECURING INIUNCTJON, TIES UP 286,731 SHARES WHICH HARRIMAN INTENDED VOTING TOMORROW Chicago, Oct., 16.—E. H. Harri man arrived in the city today to take an active part in the fight for control of the Illinois Central. The chief interest in the struggle centered in the court room of Judge Ball where both sides lined up this morning with a big army of legal talent to fight for and against the temporary injunction issued yesterday in response to the request of StuyveSant Fish, by which 286,731 shares of stock were for the time being with drawn from the Harriman voting strength. Chicago, Oct. 15. An injunction restraining the Union Pacific or Har riman interests from voting 286,731 shares of Illinois Central stock, about 30 per cent of the total issue at the annual meeting of the company, was issued yesterday by Judge Ball of tie Superior court of Cook county, upon the application of Stuyvesent Fish, former Senator Edmunds of Vermont, John A. Kasson of Iowa, former mln ister to Austria and William M. Em rich, an attorney, of Chicago. The plea for injunction was baseJ on the decision of the supreme court of Illinois, first made in 1889 in the "gas turst" case, and confirmed sever al times in this and other states, to the effect that one corporation cannot legally own or vote stock in another corporation. This is theflrst time, how evr, that this decision has been in voked to prevent a railroad from vot ing its stock of another railroad at an annual meeting. Mighty Questions Involved If this injunction is made permanent and sustained by the higher courts, the way will be paved for litigation which will shake to their foundations not only the Harriman lines, but near ly all of the big railway systems in this country. In addition to the Union Pacific company, the Railroad Securities company of New York are enjoined by Judge Ball from voting, directly or indirectly, at the annual meeting, any Illinois Central stock held by them or by them for anybody ais trustee. Fish May Regain Control. It is more than possible that Stuy vesant Fish and his allies will oust the Harriman interests and regain control of the Illinois Central as the Injunction practically tliminates the 30.19 per cent of tne total capital stock held by the Union Pacific and other corporations. To prevent such a coup, it is practi cally certain that the Interests now in control of the Illinois Central will try to force a postponement of th'j anual meeting. To do so, they will have to cast at least 331,835 shares of stock in favor of a motion for post ponement. If they are unable to rally so many shares, and the opposition has that many, the anual meeting will be held. Stuyvesant will be re-elected director, and E. H. Harriman will be foroed to give way on the board to a man selected by Mr. Fish. To be re-elected president of the company, which is his ambition, Mr. Fish would have to secure a majority of the votes' of the directors. This he cannot do in the near future unless the Astor and Vanderbllt influence is diverted from Mr. Harahan to him, which seems unlikely at this time. BLAKESBURG. Blakesborg.—Mrs. W. R.

Decatur, 111., Oct. 15.—The state closed its evidence in the case against Fred and Fay Graham Ma gill this morning and the counsel for the defense immediately filed a demurrer to the evidence and asked the court to instruct the jury to return a verdict of not guilty. Arguments on the demur rer followed. Decatur 111., Oct. 15.—The extraor dinary fact was brought out at the Maglll murder trial that Fay Graham, who had supplanted Pet Magill in the affections of her husband, was the per son who prepared the shroud in which the banker's first wife was burled. The witness who threw this bomb shell into the Magill defense is Mrs. Nellie Phares, intelligent, gray haired and Sixty-four, the lifelong friend of the dead woman, and one of the kindly neighbors who helped to prepare Mrs. Magill's body for the grave. Although she did not say so directly, the infer ence reached the jury that Mrs. Ma gill's shrowd was made in advance of her death and that the sewing was done by Fay Graham. Magill Feared Suspicion. Mrs. Phares also testified that when she was called to the Magill home sha found the banker pacing up and down the room in which the body lay .mut tering, apparently in a great state of perturbation: "These people will accuse me I can already feel the rope about my neck." While Bentley was on the stand the defense scored an important techni cal advantage. Bentley was asked 'f he remembered the contents of the let ters. Magill said his wife had left and the witness replied in the affirmative. He was then asked to repeat the con tents of the letters as well $s he could remember and did so. The attorneys for the defense claim that this will prevent the introduction of the actual letters in evidence. SALEM.
