Scott, was ordered by the other five judges of the -district* sitting as a 'court, to transfer to their docket the case in which Editor Rbsewater of the Bee is accused of libel by the wife of ex- Sheriff Bennett. This was the result of a motion by Mr. Hose water before the five judges to have some other judge preside at the trial since he regarded the prejudice of Judge Scott as a bar to a fair trial before him. Judge Scotb declared his ability to conduct the trial fairly and refused to allow the papers to be removed. Then the judges ordered the clerk to prorjuce the papers in the case at 9 a. in. to-day and cited Mr, Rosewater to be present for trial. When Judge Scott heard this he at once entered in his journal a decree nullifying the order of the five judges and cited Rosewater to appear in his court at 0 a. m. this morning for trial. He further instructed the clerk that if he attempted to carry the papers in the case from his coxtrt room he would have him jailed for contempt. RAILWAY MEN IN CONFERENCE.
