MOVE TO VACATE ORDER.
Petition of Thoima and Kyan Will
Probably He Dismissed.
Savannah, Jan. 3. —A motion to va
cate the order and dismiss the petition
of Thomas and Ryan against the Louis
ville and Nashville Railroad company
has been filed with the clerk of the
United States court here. This is the
litigation which involved the lease of
the Georgia railroad, which was at. one
time owned jointly by the Louisville
and Nashville and the Central railroad
and afterwards claimed by the Louis
ville and Nashville.
There was for some time a stubborn
fight over the lease in the United States
court, but a settlement was finally
effected between the purchasers of the
old Central and the Louisville and Nash
ville, and this compromise having been
put into effect there was no longer any
need for the suit. It will be dismissed.

was shot Steele’s remains were shipped
