The Barnett-Clark case which has occupied the attention of Judge Burson in the circuit court this week carne to a close yesterday and At. Barnett is again the proprietor of that valuable piece of hotel property, the Barnett house and is accordingly the happiest man in town. The closing arguments were heard by Judge Burson yesterday morning. Q, A. Myers for the defense and M. Win Held for the plaintiff addressed the court. Following the latter argument Judge Burson without leaving the bench announced his decision which was received with universal satisfaction in the city. This decision sets aside the deed conveying the Barnett house to the Clarks and restores to Mr. A. C. Barnett the proprietary rights to the house bearing his name. The finding provided that the Clarks should receive repayment of the $4,000 cash they paid on the house upon taking possession a year ago. but Mr. Baraett received credit for rent during the eight months the Clarks held the house, at the rate of $204- per month: for the §1,000 fee paid to Hook, Green & Co., hotel brokers for Uieir services in making the sale; for taxes, etc., etc., in all amounting to $3,300. This leaves only $700 for the Clarks, and as their rights in the finding are subros-ated to Mr. A. C. Griffith who bought the house from them some months ago, Mr. Griffith gets the $700, which after all will find its way into the pockets of the attorneys. The decision of the court further gave Mr. Barnett immediate possession of the house. Judge Burson used very plain terms in characterizing- the transaction attend- in 0 ' the sale, on the part of the Clarks and others, declaring that it was an unmistakable case oi deliberate attempt on their part to defraud Mr. Barnett, and that the transaction was in close line with a carefully planned confidence game in which the Clarks were assisted by the hotel brokers and certain Minneapolis real estate men.

The Rival Cabinet Letter File $1,50 For Eacli Cabinet Filinggiray, ; The Judge has on many occasions struck terror to the hearts of confidence men in other lines, and in as unmistakable terms set the stamp of his disapproval on the Clarks' scheme. The defendant's counsel set up a motion for an appeal but the court promptly overruled the same. Mr. and Mrs. Barnett took possession of the hotel last evening and the reins of government of the popular Barnett are again in the hands of that excellent hotel man and admirable chef Atvvater C. Barnett, much to the satisfaction of his friends and the people of Logansport in general. Mr. Griffith, the late proprietor, will remain in the city some days. It is not known bow he is affected by the way things have gone. It is understood however that he had no money invested in the house and that he will rot quit loser. When asked by a Journal reporter last evening how he stood in the deal Mr. Griffith replied that he did not care to say one way or the other how ' be is affected by the decision. It is a significant fact that the Clarks did not show up at all during the trial. Old man Clark and his song-and-dancs sons have evidently had all of Logansport they care for.
