In the court of Squire DeMasters,
ou Mouday last, was tried a hog case
uf considerable interest to our citizuns
geueially. It appear, that the hogs
uf M. J. Creel, who resides oulBide the
city, got out of his lot and wandered
into town. Here they were taken up
by the Murshol aud impounded under
a city ordiuauce. Mr. Creel had been
in the habit uf keeping his hogs up auu
did uut feel disposed to pay the mar
shal a fee as the fact of his hogs being
outside was purely accidental. The
marshal relused to let them go without
his tvs, aud the result was a repleviu
suit, which was tried as stated. After
heariug all the evidence the Justice
decided in favor of Creel, giving him
nominal damages, which throws the
costs ou the city marshal. The Jus
tice takes this view of the case: That
the ordinance is intended to prevent
owners of stock from allowing it to
run at large habitually, aud is not In-
tended as a worry aud disturbing cause
to thu owner of stock, who keeps such
stock restrained, aud it is only at large.
when it escapes against his will. This
is, in our judgment a correct view of
the case. The great majority of the
owners oi stock, especially hogs. In
this section, huvo a regular inclo
sure for such hogs, tiut often by acci
dent gates aru left opeu, planks or
palings become loose, and stock get
out agaiust the will of the owner. It
would be a manifest injustioe to levy
hue of 60 eents per head in suob
a case and no court would sustain such
a proceeding. Still it is a little hard
for the marshal to know just when he
ought and when he ought not to take
up stock found running at large, and
he i. certainly placed in an awkward
position by this desoision, which we
believe will hold goud in any oourt
