In tho case of A. Friedman vs The
City in tho county court Judge Hardy
granted the city a new trial. At this
term of the court a jury cave Fried
man a verdict for $300. Tho oaso
had been tried oneo before and result
ed in a mistrial. The argument was
opened by E. E. Eastorling for tho
oity, Mr. Baker followed him for tho
plaintiff and Mr. Flint closed for the
oity. We dosire to make spooial
mention of Mr, EaBtorhng's argument
It was lucid, clear and prosonted with
muoh foroe and ingenuousness. Mr
Eastorling has an office with Flint,
Downs ana Flint. He assists tho
oity attorney in the recorders oourt
and brings to all prosecutions the
There has been so much tajk about
tho Milwaukeo people buying tho
bonds that it has naturally brought
out muoh interesting history of bond
sales by the oity. It is a matter of
common notoriety that the Milwiu
kco people oneo contemplated buying
from Mayor McOulloch and he con
ferred with their agtnts to that end.
W. S Kinoheloe, in the absence of
C. G. Morgan, the agont here of the
Mutual Life Milwakeo, called upon
Mayor McCullooh for a transcript of
the proceedings of the city council
and other data gertnam to the bonds
Mr. MoCullooh seeing a possible
chance to sell put himself to consider
able trouble to prepare and furnish
papers. There was some correspond
ence. Afterward during the mayor's
absenee in Now York they asked for
some other information about the
matter and City Treasurer Seloy
promptly furnished it. Nothing come
of it and tho company was novor hoard
from again until tho lato negotiations
with tho hiBtory of whioh the public
is fully acquainted.
As Col. Payne'a speeoh relative tho
employment of assistant counsel in
the Street Improvements oases has
O7oked some comment about tho mat
ter, and Btanding alone might lead to
some misapprehension as to its real
status we deem it no, more than faro
justioo to all parties to state all the
facts. Mr. Flint himself suggested
suoh employment and only did so af
ter the freest discussion of tho matter
with mombers and with his friends.
Ho prepared tho resolution whioh
brought up the matter, and which res
olution suggested tho appointment of
a committeo to consult with him as to
tho advisability of suoh a course. No
firm was designated in tho resolution
as Mr. Flint was unwilling to be
placed in tho attitude of favoring any
particular firm. That he deemed a
matter for tho council. Tho resolu
tion reoitod the faots that there was
already ponding fifty suits against tho
oity, somo cases of trespass to title,
others for damagos, One of theso last
for $50,000, anothor for the sum of
$15,000. The jurisdiction of the re
corder's court has been enlarged and
frequently oases aro contested whioh
take tio whole day in their trial.
Thoso are appealed and havo to bo
followed to tho county oourt. Ho has
also to advise oounoil, prepare con
tracts, etc Tho oases in which ho
.oillions of Homes
suggests assistanoo involvo in the ag
gregrato the gigantio sum of $200,000
and will necessitate hundreds of oases.
Mr. Flint has already filed
some of tho suits. Ho has
and had a praotico beforo his election
as oity attornoy. No oity attorney
has ever abandoned entirely his prao
tico, this would be suicidal to any
lawyer, bcoauso ho could not hopo to
hold tho oflici' for a longer time than
two terms. No suoh gigantio litiga
tion has tho city ever had and yot
ovory city attornoy bofoie Mr. Flint
has ropoatedly had assistance. Mr
Flint in nil tho important litigation
during his t"rm has never had. any
help, nor will he in all suits now
pending. The employment of Baker
and Prendergast bus reforencp to only
ono street improvement case anu tho
fee is an extremely small ono for such
Mr, Flint know thatoritioism would
follow and so stntod to tho committeo.
He stated further that bo was willing
to abido the consequence, that he did
not want it said hereafter, that bo
from vanity or false professional pride
or tho fear of oritioism was unwilling
to aooept aid from his older and abler
professional brethren in the most stu
pendous litigation the city will over
havo. The public knowing tho faots
will doubtless endorso tho aotion of
the city attorney and tho oounoil. It
is a mattor of grave importance.
