SCPREME COtTBT Sraoiax Tbkh or. IT. ' Beam Has. Jsmsm C tarts. . WHO I UTS OBI4UIAX OaXISTT ? HIS aiRITKBLa AOAUC. ChHotg vs. Jfavpay tt aL This was an application for an attachment against tha defondant for eon. Umpt in violating aa injunction granted oa the lttth of Sept. last, restraining them from giving any concerts or advertising themselves as "Christy's Minstrels." It appears that a party of minstrels, mott of whom were at one time connected with E. P. Christy, have keen travelling about the country giving the concerts as M Christy' Minstrels,' but to most of their advertisements aad hand-bills wars al tached a notice that they had no connection with E. F. Christy; or where this wa not done, public notice waa given before the cojnmencament of the concert, that E. t. Christy had nothing to do with their band. The plaint 0 claim that the injunction restrained any concerts to be given under the name of 'Christy's Minstrels,' end that any notice, printed or verbal, of non-connection wita K P. ChiUty, did not Influence the cae any way, and therefore the defoadants are gull ty of contempt iniviolrf ng the Injunction. , Tbe defendants claim that the injunction restrained them merely fi om so giving themselves out to be Christy's Minstrel as to deceive the public into the belief that E, P. Christy wsa still connected with and responaiUe for the actions of ths Company, and that, t y giving notice of their dissolution of aU eon. neotion with E. P. Christy, they complied with th teims of the fcajv-nHlon. The Court took tha papers, and will render a decision In a few days. For plaintiff. Stallknecht and Smith; for defendants, Van Colt and Cady.
