Chicago, 111., Feb. 20.—Judge Ball
today dissolved the injunction granted
on application of Stuyvesant Fish last
October. This means that E. H. Har-
rlman will bo re-elected president of
the Illinois Central at the directors’
meeting soon to be held. He is al-
lowed to vote 286,283 shares of stock
held by the Union Pacific and the
Railroad Securities Company.
Mr. Fish, who was formerly presi-
dent of the Illinois Central, filed a
bill on Oct. 14, 1907, asking that 286,-
283 shares of Illinois Central stock
owned by the Union Pacific Railroad
Company, the Railroad Securities
Company, and the Mutual Life Insur-
ance Company of New York, be en-
joined from being voted at the annual
meeting of the railway company, set
for Oct, 16. The matter was taken
before Master in Chancery Browning,
who recommended the issuance of the
temporary injunction as asked in the
bill. This recommendation was act-
ed upon by Judge Ball who issued a
temporary restraining order.
Mr. Fish was joined in his suit by
Former Senator George F. Edmunds
of Vermont, John A Kasson, former
Minister to Austria, and by William
H. Em rich. The bill alleges that
the defendants held a part of the out-
standing stock of tyn^railroad com-
pany. Mr. Fish averred (hat the board
of directors was dominated by Ed-
ward H. Harrlman and said that the
voting of this stock should not be al-
lowed as It would Injure the inter-
ests of himself and other stockholders.
On Nov. 25 the complainants ap-
peared in court and dismissed their
bill insofar as it related to the 5,000
shares of stock held by the Mutual
Life Insurance Company. The defend-
ants then presented a motion to dis-
solve the temporary injunction. Argu-
ments upon this motion continued
through several days and were long
and exhaustive. The decision of
Judge Ball today was on the motion
to dismiss the injunction. During
these arguments the annual meeting
of. the Illinois Central railroad which
had previously been continued from
time to time was set for March 2.
The bill originally filed by Mr. Fish
was based on the theory that the pub-
lic policy act of Illinois prohibits fori
elgn corporations from holding and
voting stock in Illinois corporations
save in certain exceptions allowed
The complainants contended that
the fact that no violations are allow
ed by statutes, proved that the pub-
lic policy act should hold good in
The Railroad Securities Company of
New Jersey, which is a holding and
Investment company, was character-
ized by Judge E. H. Farrar, counsel
for Mr. Fish in the injunction proceed-
ings, as a "mongrel" corporation.
This company controls 80,000 shares
of TUirfois Central stock. The re-
mainder of the stock enjoined is own-
ed by the Union Pacific Railway com-
pany. It was shown during the argu-
ments that, much of this stock stood
In the names of clerks employer! by
Kuhn. Loeb A Co., of New York
While the stock Involved is but 29.6
of the total Issue of 950,000 shares. It
was declared by counsel at the hear-
ing before Judge Ball to be a control-
Counsel for Mr. Harrlman contend-
ed that in previous annual meetings
Mr. Fish bad reaped the benefit of
these votes and that if such voting
was Illegal he was aware of It, and
should not be allowed to enjoin it
from being voted by other people.
