STREET RAILWAY WAR
The Portsmouth and Port Norfolk
Lines in Court.
?fi?
Jude? 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.

Important
to all men.
Suffering Mankind ? you
who have grinned and borne
the miseries of sox that went
to shreds in a few days' wear
and left the tender
toes to rub 'gainst
the hard shoe
leather ?let your
hearts rejoice ?
there's a remedy?
a new sock ? a
"sock that don't"?as different
from the ordinary sox as the
electric light is from the tal?
low dip.
HOLEPROOF SOX
are just w hat we say they are
?sox that are proof against
holes?that are knit by such a
novel and perfect process, and
of so fine a quality of yarn,
that they never need mending.
The darning basket may be rele?
gated to the attic its use is gone.
But "holeproof" only tells part of
their goodness?they're antiseptic?
soft and soothing 10 the feet?they
neither harden, shrink nor fade when
they are washed. And, once more,
to make it imperative Holeproof Sox
never need mending.
It you're disposed to doubt it, we've
a guarantee that's fair and square.
You buy no "pig in a poke." If the
h>.\ fail you, you hold us responsible.
But they won't tail you. They're
I not the "fail kind."
