Moroni' Agreement With Governor Holl, dny, to Collect money Dno I'rom ftulloiinl Government, niscnssed. -? (Special to Vlrglnl.m-rilot.) Richmond, Va? March 22.?Judge Ed mond Waddlll, of the ynitcd States District Court, to-day refused to grant the Injunction asked for by W. R. Strang, Jr., of New York, ngalnst the Richmond, Petersburg and Carolina Railroad Company. The suit was a very Important one, and has attracted much attention. Strang, who Is president of a bank of New York city, and Is said to be a rail? road contractor of some note, claimed to have a contract with the Richmond, Petersburg nnd Carolina for tho con Blruction of the road from Richmond to Ridgewny, NT. C. He claimed only a verbal contract. He claimed he was to be paid in bonds of the company, and that they had violated the con? tract nnd given the work to others, though ho had come to this .city and opened offices preparatory to entering upon the construction of the road. He asked that the company and a trust company of New York be restrained from disposing of the bonds, and that the railroad company be enjoined from disposing of lie right of way and cer? tain privileges and franchises. The ease came up on a plea to per? petuate the injunction, but was decided on the questions arising in the demur? rer lo tlie bill, making It unnecessary to pass upon the merits of the million for an Injunction. The court ruled that the alleged contract is in many respects vague and uncertain. It does not with any degree of certainty tlx the point at which the road is to begin or end or define the exact route. "Unless the terms of the contract sought to be en? forced can be ascertained with reason? able certainty a court of equity ought not to enter upon its enforcement. A decree was entered, dismissing with costs the bill of the complainant, and en a consequence the motion for the Injunction failed. Mr. 1'. H. Larkln, of New York, nnd Mr. 1").
