No sooner had the train arrived,

When tho train started for Liitlo

Milwaukee, Jan. . An "interest
ing case will bo culled in Judge
Austin's court, on Monday. The title
of tho caso is Hoso "Roooh vs Wil
Imui Smith," and the plaintiff wants
$10,000 damages for Inoach of prom
ise. Th peculiar fcaturo of the ease
is that complications havo arieon by
which a state law may bo used to com
pel particB to go to law whon thoy
do not wish to.
Mr. Smith is a resident of Wausau
and is said to ho quito wealthy. Up
makes occasional trips to Milwaukee,
and on one of theso visits several years
ago, it is alleged, ho became enam
ored of Rosa Rosche, a prepossess
ing you:,g woman, and promised to
In hor complaint Rose alleges that
for tho last ten years sho confidently
expected to become Mrs Smith, and
now she considered that her affections
havo bcou trifled with f 10,000 worth
She rotained MoKouny, MoAuliffo and
Wamhold as counsol, and the suit
against Smith was begun June 10.
Tho most interesting phase oc
curred a few days ago, when
Mies Rosche wulkud into the
office of her attoruoys and calmly in
formed them that she had settled with
tho defendants. She also tendnrcd
tho attornojs a feo of $75.00. Tie
attorneys promply rejected the oiler
for thoy had takou tho caso under tho
law passed by tne last legislature,
whioli permits lawyers to tako cases
on contingent fees. That is, an at
torney can take a case with tho under
standing that he is to reoeivo as his
feo any propi r ion of the proheods
that may Do agreed upon. The law
further makes tho attomoy'H feo a
lion on tho subject matter of the caso.
Tho attorneya agreements with Miss
Itosoho was that thoy should get half
of tho prooeeds. Thoy learned that she
was going to rcooivo $500 from Mr.
Smith, so thoy rejootcd hor offer of
$7" and domanJed $250. She re
fused to give them more than t7f.
Tho lawyers then had the settlomont
set aside and got out an injunction
restraining the parties to tho wit from
making auy kind of settlement.

MiuiHiKtown, Conn., Jan. 2. It
has been decided that the trial of
Frank W. MuGuirc ohargod with tho
murder of Mrs. Amelia G. Gicgory,
will como in next week in thu Court
of Oyer and Terminer. Mrs. Sarah
A. Brown, who is thought to he an
aocomplico of McGuiro is under olosfc
survcillanco. She his made a state
ment which is an attempt to divert
uuspiaian from herself and Frank
McGuiie and to lastcn the ciimn on
Warren Bnuington. Brazington,
was an accomplice beforo tho aot and
shared in the booty. IIo has since
turned informer and iH held in jail as
a principal witness against his asso
ciates in guilt. Mrs Brown declares
that it'wns Brazington and not Mo
Gnire who killed Mrs. Gregory. The
fact that there is an absolute and un
imprmohabio alibi established in
Brazington's casu deprives hor state
ment of any value.
