Federal Judges Will Come Later. LITTLE ROCK. Oct. 31. (Ul 1 )—. An interlocutory Injunction against the- state treasurer was granted liolUcisof Arkansas highway bonds litre today pending a final decision by tr.o three judge lederal court which took the cose under ad- vir/:ment. Under the injunction Arkansas highway funds remain tied up. thus preventing lire slate from paying interest, duo Pennsylvania before is brought by Ihnt slate to collect interest and "restore the secur- ilv of the bonds. "Suit will be Hied in United States supreme court by Pennsylvania November C. according to William A. Schnader, Pennsylvania nt-Lorney General. Regardless of tiic outcome of the injunction hearing now before the court here b'jlh parties have inti- mriled they \vii] appeal the decision lo the district courl of appeals at St. Louis or St. Paul and all indications point to the case ending in llie United Siale5 supreme court. Contract Violated The plaintiff, one of many holders of the $146,030.000 Arkansas highway debt, contends the Arkansas legislature violated its contract with tlie bondholders by passing aclr. in 1933 which reduced highway revenues and diverted the monies lo other purposes thon the paymen of interest on bonds, as providec for in the Miirlineau read law. I was asked that the slate treosurj be enjoined permanently from pay in? out highway funds for 1 purpos es other than road mafntenanc and payment of interest on slat highway pljigalions..', v _ ^ It was" pointed o'uftfTc eonstitu lion provides that tn'e legislatur cannot pass any acts which violat a contract and contended that thi wrii done by passage of the acts i 19?3; that the legislature, not th people, who constitute the stat violated the agreement, and to that reason the suit is not or . ajainst Ihe stale but against a rr;eiH of the state and has a rlgl in court.
