The Supreme Court has decided, though no formal opinion was render? ed, an interesting hind case. Some time ago Mr. Joseph E. Glenn, repre sentlng Ihe Roanoke syndicate, npplled to Clerk Walter Christian, of the Hust? ings Court, for a deed to a piece of property fronting sixteen foot on Tylci street, between Cnbell and Calhoun, owned by Lucy A. Patterson. Mr. Christian refused to execute the deed on the ground that the engineet of the city is required by the act of February ll. 1893 (commonly known ns the land-grabbers' act), to make a sur? vey end report as to the metes and bounds of the property applied for. Mr, Glenn thereupon npplled to the Supreme Court for a writ Of manda? mus against Waller Christian, clerk, hhd W. E. Culshnw, engineer, to com? pel tin- execution of the deed demand? ed. Supreme court dismissed Mr. Glenn's petition und refused to award the writ of mandamus against the 1!. rk, the eotirt holding that in the dis? cretion of the County or Corporation Court there need not be a %:rvcy. If a sufficient description of the property rin be obtained from the records. The gist of this decision is that the ques? tion of whether or not the survey shall lie made lies abs dutcly in the discretion of '.he court. In most cases It Is pro? bable that the survey will not be re quired since the records are generally all sufficient. This decision seems to suit every one Interested. ANOTHER LAND CASIO. Some time ago Mr. YV. H. Plzztnl. of this city, sold for a customer a piece of ? 'hutch Hill property in this city, and an examination or the title showed that an application was made for the pur? chase for delinquent taxes of the whole block, bounded by "Q." "K," Twenty eighth and Twenty-ninth streets, In which the property in question is located, The owner of the lot decided to test the question, owing to certain legal points, which are Involved, and his at- ? toraey. Col. L. T. \v. Marye, was awarded a temporary injunction this morning by Hon- B. R. Welford, re? straining John Harrison, the applicant, from further prosecuting his applica? tion, and also restraining Clerk Samuel P. YVnddill from executing a deed to Harrison by reason of his application. l The question <-f malting the Injuctlon perpetual will be decided in a few days. Colonel Marye is confident that this will be done. RELIEF OF THE POOR. The city Department or Outdoor Poor Is doing a great work now. The Citi? zens' Society is rendering excellent aid.

The office of the superintendent In the City Hull is crowded every day by those who are in need of fuel and food, and it is through bis good judgment and discretion that the provisions made by the city for the care of the poor out? side the nlmshouse do so much good and go so far.
