The grand jury found 'an indictment which promises a series of interesting developments. It is against J, L. Button for a trade in which he got a threshing machine outfit of Geo. Cheevers of Webster City .in exchange for notes, etc. Cheevers came up with his thresher to operate in Kossuth, but not finding much to do wanted to get rid of it. Sutton gave him a second mortgage on his livery stock, and notes, in all to the amount of $1,'200. He then took the'machine over to a Westnrn county and sold it. Cheevers claims that the notes and mortgages were worthless and that Sutton made false representations. Button's story is that Cheevers looked over the stock the mortgage was on, looked up the county records, and made the trade with his eyes open. Sutton also claims that Cheevers made an affidavit that only the engine was mortgaged, whereas the whole outfit was mortgaged, and he says that he will have Cheevers arrested and his two wit nesses. Sutton is out on bonds and the case will not be tried till fall. SUTTON AND COLVIN GET OFF. The grand jury completed its labors Saturday night. Through some mistake somewhere the case against Sutton and Colvin waa not considered and they are let out of the charge of swindling Callies out of his horse on the note trade. It seems that the testimony taken at the trial before 'Squire Taylor was not all filed with the papers in the case and so did not get to the grand jury. The testimony was taken in short-hand by Mart. Weaver and Miss Richardson. ' 'Squire Taylor waited for it to be written out, but finally filed the papers and told the reporters to file the testimony before court met. Mart, made his up and got it in Friday, but Miss Richardson's part was not filed. The jury called for it several times of Clerk Crose and did not get it. The jury could have sent for the witnesses but thought the county would be put to needless expense so long as the evidence had been taken once and should be on hand, and so did not do it, and finally adjourned without doing anything. Sutton and Colvin gave up the horse, and the matter is ended. THE COLBY WHISKEY PEDDLING. , The much-talked of L. L. Colby, who was lined up at Swoa City for peddling whiskey, and who left the constable in the lurch as he was taking him to Bancroft, walked into court Saturday and gave himself up in order to fight the case out. Judge Carr had decided that until he submitted to the authorities the hearing could not proceed, and his attorney, A. C. Ripley, got him in. He is under $450 fines assessed by C. A. Molinder. He insists that he did not peddle liquor, as he only took orders and collected the pay, the house at Albert Lea doing all the business. This question of what constitutes peddling is a close one, but County Attorney Raymond has no doubt that he can convict Colby. In any event he will carry the matter to the supremo court and get a decision as to what constitutes peddling liquor, Colby was released yesterday after trial. It was decided that he could not be held under the law, W. D. MOULTON NOT INDICTED. Some time ago we noted the bringing of W. D. Moulton hack to Bancroft from Wisconsin on the charge of larceny. The justice held him to the grand jury, but they after hearing the whole case have decided there is nothing in it, Mr, Moulton used to live in the county, FOR HIDING MORTGAGED PROPERTY, An indictment is found against J, R, Thornton, who lives a couple of miles southwest from town, He owed B. W. Haggard a note secured by a mortgage on a team, He offered to pay what he said was due on the note, but a dispute arose as to the amount and the mortgage was foreclosed, When they went for the team Mr. Thornton had them at a neighbor's and refused to tell where they were, He is held for concealing the horses, Sullivan & McMahon will defend and the case will be fought out. PRAIRIE FIRE DAMAGES, Last fall Aug. Gt'iramens set a fire on his stubble in Irvington and went off and left it. IDrickson and Lord lost a lot of hay and some tools and sued for $000, Quarton prosecuted and Sullivan & MoMahon defended and the jury brought in a verdict for $500 against Grimmens, Grimmeps is under indict* merjt for setting this fire, but his case is continued, A nmn who sets a fire these days must make it his business to tend to it, A LANP DEAL. Charlie Blanchard made a, land sale up at Elrflore in which he showed an old abstract to the parties and agreed in writing to bring it down to show title in him. The abstract does not show a good title to the land, The parties claim that he agreed to make ft show a good title in him. He claims that he agreed to wake entries to show such title as tfcere was in h}m. The court took bis view of it and took the case 9W»y from tfee jury. Geo. E. Clarke and W- B.. Qtiarton argued it. 4 Test P4SE.

A NfeW QtMsfWH »AlSBtJ< Lawyers Clarke and Sullivan argued a, question Monday that has never been passed on. tt is whether an at' tachment issued by the court 4 would take precedence Of a mechanic's Hen that had not been recorded. Judge Carr held that the mechanic's lien would be ahead) but it is a close qttes* tion and Mr. Sullivan says he iMay go to the supreme court on it. TfiE WESLEY STREET VACATION. Mrs. Ann Mct*herson asked .the court to issue a certlorari compelling the town council of Wesley to produce their records and show by what right they vacated a street by her place. A. C. Ripley was for her and W. B. Quarton for the town. The judge held that the writ was properly asked for and the town must answer. The case will be tried this week. This is the street E, B. Eddy's house stands In. COURT NOTES. County Attorney Raymond tried to hold the bonds of the Germania bootleggers for their fines, but finally decided that he could not do it and dropped the matter, , The Kossuth County'bank sued Henry Norder on a note that had outlawed shortly after the suit was begun. The jury found for Norder. At the last term the jury found for H. Austin against Jesse Hartshorn on a horse trade in which $135 was claimed, but gave only $36, although there was no dispute as .to the 'amount. Judge Garr gave Austin a new trial and this term the matter was argued to the court, who gave a judgment for the full amount. Swetting sued. In the suit by C. Breen vs. F. C. Fuller at the last term the jury failed to agree and some said eleven of them were for Breen and some had eleven for Fuller. This term Fuller got the whole twelve. Breen sued for $200 rent. Fuller set up an offset in the way of repairs, and got a verdict of $3.05. Swetting for Fuller and Raymond for Breen. Goo. Henderson and James Moran are indictedfor breaking into Wolport's store.
