RICHMOND NEWS AND GOSSIP Proceedings Against R. P. and C. Railroad. FOR PERPETUAL INJUNCTION Judge Wnddlll, of Untied Mute Court, llonrn Arffnuicut oil Motion to t'ontluno ItcNtrnlnlnc Order Granted Sir. Strauu-Tlio CJovcrii or Again iu rnrdoiiliifr Humor ? Forlnuioutti nizamlat Liberated. (Special to Vlrglnlan-Pllot.) Richmond, Va., March 20.?The In? junction case of Wm. B. Strang, Jr., of New York, against the Richmond, Petersburg and Carolina railroad, was argued before Judge 12dmund Waddill, of the United States District Court, Saturday. Mr. Btrang alleges that he had a contract -with the said company to build the road and that It was agreed that he should bo paid in the bonds of the company after the work was com? pleted. ' lie further alleges that the contract was violated and the work given to others after bo had established offices here and put engineers to work on tho, road. The Richmond, Petersburg and Carolina railroad denies that they had any such contract with Strang. The latter brought suit and enjoins the company against disposing of its bonds or transferring his contract to other parties. Judge Waddill, a few days ago, granted a temporary injunction, and the argument-yesterday "Is on the Question of continuing that injunction. Messrs. John Larkln, of New York, arid l). Lawrence Groner, of Norfolk, appeared for Strang and MessrB. W. H. McKlnney, of Petersburg, and Henry A Williams, of Richmond, for the rail? road company. ?The argument occupied the entire flay and Judge Waddill took the case Under advisement with tho understand? ing that ho would deliver his opinion next Wednesday. Governor Tyler yesterday granted a pardon to "William Campbell, who Is serving a term in the penitentiary for highway robbery. Campbell's case- is a peculiar one. It furnishes a striking Instance of the for getfulness of the world of the members of society Immured within a prison, for crimes against society. When Governor Tyler received Camp? bell's application for pardon he -wrote to the Judge and the Commonwealth's at? torney of Danville for information re? garding Iiis crime. These olllclals could loot supply It, and stated that nobody (n Danville seemed to know him. He has no relatives, and so far as known, So friends, or even acquaintances in ?anvlllc. From the penitentiary it was learned that Campbell was sent to the peniten? tiary In 1SS0 for highway robbery, but that later ten years was added for striking a guard. He would have com? pleted nineteen years of his term In April, malting no allowance for good conduct. In his application Onanpbcll oays that his eyesight is falling him and that his health Is poor. He says he hns a relative In another State, with Whom ho desires to live. A PORTSMOUTH BIGAMIST. Tho Governor also pardoned George Washington Moore, a, colored convict from Portsmouth, serving a term of three years for bigamy. It seems that Moore deserted his wife because of her alleged infidelity. Four years after he left her another child was born to her, which strengthened his determination to remain away from her. Two years later Moore told his story to a lady und asked her ir she did not think he should marry again. She replied in the affirm? ative, meaning, of course, he should get a divorce, for which he seemed to have ample ground. 1 tut Mo ire married wllll OUt getting tho divorce, and when he had lived with the second woman about a your, was arrested nt the Instigation of the first woman, tried in the Hust? ings Court of Portsmouth, and sen? tenced to three years In prison. WILL PARDON A YOUNG GIRL. Governor Tyler will also pardon Mary Cook, a fifteen-year-old jrirl who was convicted at the August, istis, term of the Loudoun County Ccjlirl of forgery. The facts are "recited that the girl was under fourteen years of age when convicted, that the forgery was only for a very small amount, and that Ii V father reimbursed the man wronged. The trial judge and several of the Jury,! In view of these facts, recommend the pardon. THE OMAHA EXPOSITION. Governor Tyler has received urgent Invitations from Governor W. A.
