MILES LOSES $300,000 SUIT
AGAINST CHAMP. BUTQHER
J. Ogden Armour won the suit
against him by Wm. Miles, former
official of Armour & Co., when the
plaintiffs in the $300,000 action asked
for a non-suit to prevent Judge Bren
tano from taking the cafee from the
jury and throwing it out of court.
In fact, Brentano had already
started giving his decision, when
Miles' attorneys after a short con
ference broke in and asked that the
case be closed by non-suit. This al
lows them the chance of suing again.
Mr. Armour was not in court when
the decision came, but his battery of
five' high-priced attorneys represent
ed him. i They were led by Alfred
Urion, former member of the school
board and one of the highest-salaried
attorneys in Chicago.
Attorneys for Miles declared last
night that they got a square deal, but
that their case did not stand up well.
Miles accused Armour of putting
one over on him when he got his em"
ploye to sell him a thousand shares
of Armour stock for $40,848.50. Miles
claims this was worth about S200,
000 at the moment he sold it, but he
didn't know that until later.
