tion suit brought against it by the Schuylkill
Traction Company to restrain the removal of
tbe brace the company fastened between the

street The company claims the biacea are
essential on account of tbe height of the new
rails above the sills. Tb bsrougb elalmel
that tbe braces Interfered with the street

tbe support of the rails, becapsu the paving
brick was amply sulllclent.

Sir. D-ibb was tbe first -witness called. His
evidenre was only important as to bis pho
tographing of the track with the braces tn
position, by instruction of the borough
authorities. Several points were photo
graphed. Slark Bowman testified, from his ex
perience as a civil ongineer. that the paving
work could not have been completed bad the
braces been allowed to remain tn position,
anil that tbe rails were made perfectly solid
and straight by tho pavlug.
Contractor Briti swore that bad the braces

being placed that tbe company was -doing
something tbe borough could not permit,
and .Mr Ash replied that be would not re
move the braces, as they wero necessary to
the completion of tho track. Tbe street
committee then held a meeting and Sir,
Boehm was instructed to again see Sir. Ash.
He d)d so and Sir. Ash said bo would not re
move the braces. That night- the Borough
Council held a meeting and, as a result, tbe
written notice referred to Jiy the' Chief
Burgess was served on Sir. Ash.
The taulng of testimony was concluded at
noon aud that part ot the case is now closed.
The next Step will be to arrange for an argu
ment before court, which will probably take
