maid; who saved two boys from
a horrible death.

- THIS HAPPENS?
New York, March 4. Why
not do away with juries altogeth

any account, as evidence the fol
lowing story.

$14,000 damages from the Hon

financial highbinders-

pealed, and now Justice Gavegan
has decide dthat Hein can take
$90.76 or have the suit tried over,
at great expense to himself.

case, but when, the twelve men
haviqg passed such judgment,
one man can lightly overrule, all
they've done, why goftb the ex
pense of getting the -twelve men ?
