Wnddlll Kiijolns the Former From Croaalng llio Trnck of tho Littler ?t'lnnl Hearing Net for June 6. In the United Stales Court, Judge Wnddill granted a temporary injunc? tion restraining the Portsmouth Street Hallway Company from crossing the Port Norfolk Electric Hallway Com? pany's track at the intersection of Seventh and Broad street, Portsmouth. The bill for injunction was filed py B. W. Leigh, receiver for the latter road. Tho allegation Is made in the bill that since the night of April 28th the Port Norfolk line has been put to ex? pense and worry because of the Ports? mouth'Street Railway Company trying to build a jump-rail crossing over the track of the former line at Seventh nnd Bonrd streets, so as to enable the latter company to run a line to Port Norfolk. Receiver Leigh, In the bill, alleges that the competition of the Portsmouth Street Railway line would be very dis? astrous to the Port Norfolk line should the former be allowed to enter that territory. GUARDS ON THE SCENE. The bill sets forth that on the night of April 28th Louis H. Mountrey, super? intendent of the Portsmouth Street Railway, went with a force of hands, rails, spikes, etc., to Seventh and Broad streets and sturted to build the crossing which would give that road an entry into the territory of the Port Norfolk road. The employes of the lat? ter road, the bill says, prevented the crossing being made. Since that time guards have been kept at the crossing to prevent further efforts of Mr. Moun? trey to cross the petitioner's track, and at night It has been deemed necessary to keep a locked car on the said crossing. INJUNCTION GRANTED. Judge Waddlll made tin order grant? ing the Injunction to the receiver, and citing I,ouis II. Mountrey and the Portsmouth street Railway Company to come before him on Tuesday, June Cth, and show cause why the injunction should not be made permanent. The Judge's order enjoins the Portsmouth Street railway from Interfering In any manner with the Port Norfolk com? pany, and especially at the crossing named. WHAT MR. MOUNTREY SAYS. Mr. Mountrey said to a Vtrglnlan Pilot reporter yesterday that he did not know what answer his road would make to the injunction. He denies that he attempted to cross the track of the Port Norfolk road by night, as alleged. The Portsmouth Street Railway Com? pany has been trying for some time to get to Port Norfolk nnd they have gone to the courts with the matter. The practicable way for that road to get there. Mr. Mountrey says. Is to cross the Port Norfolk company's track at Seventh and Broad streets. That Is the way they want to go. The Ports? mouth Street railway now has a line running to this point. THE DIRECT ISSUE. The injunction proceedings has brought the matter to a direct issue. The Portsmouth Street Railway Com? pany must make a sufTlclent answer or else the injunction will bo made per? manent, and in this event that com? pany will be barred out of the Port Norfolk territory unless they can get there in some olher way.
