Freeberg recently caused the arrest of Peter Hahl. of itear Savonburg, charging him with ai^ult. He alleged tiiat while he stood talking with Dahl's brother Victor, about a land trade, Peter Dahl came up and attacked him without any provocation whatever.^ The case was set for trial the early part of this in .lustice Duncan's coui;, but when it was called, Freeberg, complaining witness, failed to a]>pear. Then County Attorney Taylor dismissed the case .Tnd asked that the costs be taxed Freeberg. Y.'hen Freeberg relumed to lola yesterday he was arrested by Sheriff Kerr on a commitment issued" tor costs taxed against him. Freeberg >qllned to pay and resisted being •.aced In Jail by bringing habeas cor- Itus proceedings. In their client's behalf Ewing. Oard & Gard contended that Freeberg was not subpoenaed to testify as a witness and that no trial of the case against Dah! was held. Such a'-tlon, the yasstrted. did not bring Mr. Freeberg within :iifl pale of the law that provides that where a i>erron charged with a criminal offense is tried and found Innocent and where the prosecution Is subsequently found to have been malicious, teli costs in the case may be taxed against the person who caused the rnion to he brought. County Arorney Taylor Insisted that Freebers: knew that the trial was to be held that he was to be the principal witness and that he left tlie county in ordor to avoid testifying. On this ground t.'-.e state a?ked that the habeas corpus writ be refused and the defendant ordered to pay the ccsts taxed againyi him. Judge Fou5t, however, found for reeberg and granted the writ prayed for by his af omeys: As usual. Christmas day will be generally observed In loia.
