Prompt action on the part of two mem bers of tho hoard of nJdermen yesterday morning wa all that saved the city from being handed n large lemon by tho Cen tral Vermont Railway company. As It was, the two aldermen, Messrs. Cowles nnd Barnes, wore nblo to check an at tempt on tho part of tho railway company to grab the foot ot College street only by tho hatdest kind of hustling and the nble assistance of City Attorney Vilas and Ma;, or James E. Hurko. The nttempt on the part of tho rail way company to build trncks across the foot of College street nnd catch the city napping was only another muvei on the checker beiard In the game that Is being p'ayeel between the railway and the city for possession of the street. The city got the best of the deal yesterday, anil the. thirty or more feet of trestle work and tracks which the company had thrown arross the loot of tiro street disappeared jesterday afti'inoon under the direction of Jeihn II. Black, superintendent of streets, and a big force of city employes. l;v the active work on the part ot the city attorney, the railway company now stands restrained from further Interfer ing with the strict. The Injunction was granted by Judge E. L. Waterman In county court estenlay and was served upon C. K Poule, superintendent ot the Central Vermont rnllroad. The attempt on the part of the railway company to obtain possession of the street b laying Its tracks across the foot ot the thoroughfare' extending from tho :-.ncht club wharf to the land at the south of CoPegu street, which land, by the way, Hie city pro.o-es to sceuester, Is char nitetlzed as a foxy move) to checkmate the city In Its atti'inpt to lake possession of Ceilk'ge Mreet. The excitement began about S o'clock yesterday morning. The Information camo up from the lake iront that the Central Vermont had a big nang of men working on tho keen jump, putting a tiestle and track ncios-s the lower end of the street at the w.itet's e-dge. T.ils information proied tn lie correct. In fuel It I.s claimed that the railway company rusluil a big force of men to the city from out of town. It was further claimed chat p.ut ot the work wan done dm lug Tueselay night. This was denied, however, by the railway officials. Certain ii is, howeier, that the men were working on the Jump. There were about F men and they were hustling like all posessed to get the trestle work com pleted and the tracks laid. ALDKRMKN GF.T BUSY. Alderman Barnes was the first member of the city council to get wind of the matter. Ho throw on his coat and started up the street In a hurry. He first visited tiie office of Alderman Cowles. The lat ter, when informed of what was going forward, rushed Into the office of the city attorney and later went out tn find the mayor. Mayor Burke, according to the story, was sitting at the hoard table in tho city clerk s office. Alderman Cowles rushed irr. "MiO or, do you know what the Central Vermont Railway eompany Is doing?" almost shouted Air. Cowles. "No, what Is It doln?" a.ked the mayor. "It Is building tracks across tho foot of Collcgo street," replied Air. Cowles. "Good, I am glad of It," cried the mayor, bringing his fist down on tho table. "That will teach these fellows, (meaning the members of the board of nl eleimen) a lesson." "Do you mean to say that you want to be placed on record as being satisfied to have the: street taken uwny from tho city and not make a move to stop It?" shouteel Alderman Cowles. "1 elon't want to burn my fingers with the matter," replies! Alavor Burke, grow ing w. inner. "All right, I'll place you on record then," returned Mr. Cowles, "as being In favor of letting tho railway company run away with the city's rights to the street." The retorts then developeil Into some what of a personal character and Alder man Cowles returned to the office of the city attorney. In the meantlmo Alderman Barnes was discussing with the city attor ney the best plan of stopping tho move on the part of tho railway com pany. The latter called up the pollco de partment nnd ncked ActliiB Chief Cosgrlff to send some policemen (lowri to the foot of tho street to stop tho work. The aotlng chief said he had two men and would send down a third a? soon ns he could, Tho city attor ney then proceeded to get out an In junction. MAYOR NOT nXCITKD. Aldermnn Barnes made a trip to police headeiunrtors to seo If the off! eels wore on tho way down to the wharf. While Air. Baltics was bust ling about tho city trylnR to stir up snmo wny of stopping the proceed ings at tho foot of College street ho mot .Mayor Burke. The alderman was feeling protty warm under the collar by this time, "What's going em ilown thero asked the mayor. "The Central Vermont is grabbing lire right of way at tho foot of Col lege street," returned .Mr. Barnns. "Well, I am not going to burn my fingers in the matter," returned the mayor. Alderman Barnes boiled over at this rejolnilei on the part of the mayor, "If you don't get busv and stop the railway company from laying those tracks. I will use what power I possess as a innmber of the boaid of aldermen to stop It mvself. even If I have to shoulder the ii'sponslbillty," said Mr. Barnes, as the minor moved off in the direction eif the inllnviil station Aldermnn Barnes followed the chief oxecutivo a short distance, preparing to make a few romarks, but thought better of It ami went his wny. In tho meant line, through tho efforts of Mr. Cowlos and Air. Barnes, the. city attorney had his Injunction papers well under way. II" appeared before Judge Wntertnan shortly before, noon und tho Injunction was granteel, It was then served on Superintendent Senile. Whllo tlio Injunction was In process of being obtained, therei were events of moment going forward on tho lal:-5 front Whon the mayor arrived or tho Hccno, tho three policemen were on hund. Tim workmen for the rail way company had then completod t. or two-thirds of tho trestle work across the foot of tho (itruot nnd wero JtiRt preparing to put up the last heavy tlcbers. Tho ma'or had ovldently decided to take a chancer oven If he did "hum his flncors," nnd It wns about this time that ho ordered tho officers lo stop In and atop tho work. They took their positions near tho trostlo work and ordored the workmen to stop. The latter made no objection nnd tho work came to a standstill. The workmen gnthercd up their tools nnd the mayor waKed for tho city attorney to serve the Injunction. Superintendent Soulo wan In tho vicinity but dleJ not make his appenr anco whllo tho trouble was brewing, HUPT. SOrLR'S STATE.MENT, The superintendent was later seen further up the street, vlnwlng the trestle work nnd tracks from a dis tance. When seen by a Free Press repre sentative Mr. Soule said It was not true thnt the railway company hail tried to steal a mnrch on the city by laying part of the, track during the night. "I know nothing about the matter whatever," said Air. Soulo, when first approached on thn subject. Whon In formed that It was claimed the rail way company had tried to sneak tho tracks across the foot of the street he consented to make a statement. "Wbatoier legal difficulty there may bo about the possession ot tho street," said thn superintendent, "rests with the legal department. All I can nay Is that the company Is simply extending Its track facilities In this case tho r.nnio as in many other places. We neeel more track room to trundle business. These iraekn that we were putting across to the property south ut Colb'go street nre rlmply In line with other Improvements." Further than this Air. Soulo would not commit himself. K ie-1 t. I..1.

Yesterday afternoon Alelermcc Barnes and Cowles and the city at torney held a conference am! eleeieb d to tnko prompt action to dispose of inn iresne won;. i i-oiiiii.uiic.il- ,m i i! with tho street imimlssloiieri -a with the result that within an hour the superintendent of streets was on tho job. tearing away the heavy beams that had been erected. At 3:30 o'clock ti.i s c-m ,,f tiie trestle, ' lie timbers were hauled back to tho iM property of the railway company ami the city was In possession of the street, which possession the railway company so much covet and would probably have had but for the quick work of Messrs.

"The statement that I maele," said the mayor, "that I was 'glnel or it was sim ply meant in the sense that I was glad bee auso I ho matter of the possession of the street would now be brought to a heinl and settled. I did not mean that I was gliid that the railway company were taking possession of the street." According to the city attorney this Is the first cae that the city hius against the I railway company. The case which Is now 1 pending In the courts over the title of the street should not be confused with the In- ! lunctlon proceedings brought yesterday. Tho former ense was a tnxpn er's ac tion btought to test the city's title to the street. It was placed In the bands eif the city attorney becauso the city was In terested. THE BONK OF CONTENTION In n few words the bone of contention Is this: Years ago the founders of Hur llngton laid out the streets to run to the lake. Lake Champlnln was regarded ns a highway and all streets running to It were regard's! as highways meet ing another highway. As the years went by tho railway company stepped in and took pos session of the land, some' of it filled land, llnfe between the point where the high way orlnlnnlly ended and thu point where It ended after the lapse of a number of years. The city claims that Its original tltlestlll holds, while on the other hand the railway people allege the compnny owns the land between the original point of ending and Its present point. While possibly a decision In the' case now In the courts would decide the mat ter, the city fee-Is that It has a good claim to the street and that possession Is all that Is necessary at the present time. The move on the part of the railway com pan to throw Its tracks ae-ro.es the street, It is claimed, was hastened hy tho reso. latum recently passed by the board, uuthorUum the .street department to tak pjsse.-sion e.f the street. THE INJFNCTION. The lnu.nction whs served shortly nfter noon bj Deputy Sheriff Todel upon Sup-e-rlnteudent C. K. Senile. The bill of complaint recites that among the duties of the corporation of the city of Hurllngton Is one lo keep open, free anil unimpeded Its highways, and tba' one of its highways s College street ex tending east nnd west for m-arly a mil-' near tho center of the city and laid over luo years ago, "to tho edge of the waters ol Lake Clinmplaln." Ever since the date of laying Hie street, the city avers Col lege street has been maintained, unim peded and unobstructed as a proper high way or, en and common to all. The bill further recites thnt the Cen tral Vermont Railway Co.. has contem plate ! building it trestle lu-ross tho foot of tho street to lay Its Backs, thus form ing an obstruction and Impediment to the highway long dedicated to th, use of the public, and has actually begun tho work of constructing thn tristlo despite warn ings of the city, the mayor, the street ele partmcnt and the city attorney. The bill further asks that the railroad company be restrained by proper Injunc tion from further continuing In Its said unlawful course of action ami enjoined from Impelling, obstructing or restrain ing Iho froo and unliup(deel uso of Col legei strict at Its wertcrn terminus, or at Lake Cliamplaln. Judge K. L. Walermun signed tho In junction order upon tho city's filing a bond ot ?.". The Central Vermont Rail way company will be cited to appear In court on or Wore the expiration of j du The Injunction puts Into forco the re quests rn.trto In Iho bill of complaint.
