It further appears that In necord-
mice with tlio lawB of tho Territory. I
Mr. Low, acting ns tho manager ot
the defendant, made n return to tho
assessor for tho vcar 1909, In which
ho swore to the vnluo of tho leasehold
Interests of the dcfemlnnt In 1720
acres of land. Including tho 501 2 In

the same leasehold Interests covering

Ing tho testimony offered on behalf of

(lied herein, I am of the opinion that
thn amount of the verdict rendered bj
the Jury Is excessive nnd not in con
fortuity with tho weight of tho evi

nniouut which In Its opinion would bo

every kind and character In this case,
