Seass ot Decatur has started ·tlgation of an unusual nature In the Walloon city court to recover his children. Habeus corpus proceedings begun Saturday asking that Seass be Eiv«n possession of his two daughters, one ten and the other fourteen years of age. Two separate writs are sought* one against Frank and Lena Parrell of Sullivan, and one against Flora Ashbrook also of Sullivan. WHAT HE ASKS. In hie petition askins a. writ against the Farrells, Seass set forth that he la a resident of Decatur, Macon county and that his daughter, Margaret | Seass. is being held in Sullivan by Frank and Lena Farrell. Seass states that he is father of the girl, who is fourteen years of agre and that he should have the care, custody and control of her. Sea»s states that the girl ·was not given into the custody of I the Farrells by any order of the court, judgment, decree or any other legal process and that the gin is u n l a w f u l l y detained by the defendants. JudRe McNutt issued the writ of ha- beus corpus returnable July 3, at 1 o'clock p. m. NO JUDGES HERE. The second petition sets f forth that Flora Seass, aged ten, is unlawfully detained by Mrs. Ashbrook. The father of the children states that as Judge Philbrick and Judge Johns have recently died and Judge Cochran is seriously ill, there is no judges In the judicial circuit in which Macon and Moultrie counties are located, and fco it is necessary to bring the acton in the Mattoon court. The mother of the two girls died some years ago when they were mere babies and they were given into the custody of the two families which are made parties to the litigation. Seass is now in a position to amply care for the children and he asks their return, but his petition has been denied by the Farrells and Mrs. Ashbrook, whereupon the father secured 'the writ of habeus corpus compelling the parties to come into court and phow cause why they should not return the childien to thejr father.
