the people from their customary quir, any
amount of moralizing is done, nnd any
quantity of suggestions are made how that

viaduct horror forms no exception to therule.
Since its occurrence there has been an un
limited supply of more or less sage remarks
as to how tho terrible affair -would have

In view, not only of the Cleveland disaster,

the patrons of the ref-pectivellnes, and the
avoidance of these mishaps that arc the re

Hurley vs. John I. "Davenport. Justice
Scott yesterday rendered a decision In
favor of Hurley, holdluir that the chattels
attached were not liable lo exemption as
alleged by Davenport. This disposes of
one of the cases growing oat of the
seizure of Davenport's household effects
for house rent.
In Justice O'Neill's court yesterday, the
case of Thomas J. Fisher against John
I. Davenport came up. I'lnintirf was
represented by lawyers lilchardson. Donald

was as to the side on which the burden of
proof was. Attomey.for Davenport main
tained that It was the duty of Fisher to
pro-.e that the goods attached were liable
lo attachment and not the duty of Daven
port to prove that the-r;on.l.s so attached
were exempt. This point was argued at
length by counsel, and Justice O'Neill
reserved his decision till today.
