the organ was a nuisance, were pre
sented to Judge Carpenter vestorday,
with a foimal bill of complaint and
prayer for nn injunction. Judge Car
penter wanted to hear from the other

tho petitioner had to be content with
a rule on tho "merry-go-round" people
to compel them to show cause why the
Injunction should not Issue.

only t attract large crowds of dis
