McMILLEN AGAINST BUTLER.
A Verdict Rendered in an Inportant
Land Suit Involving the Ques
tion of Title by Adverse
The case of McMillen against Butler,
which has been pending in the Circuit
Court for several years, was tried this
week, tho jury rendering a verdict in
favor of the plaintiff. It is a case of
more than ordinary interest, involving
the question of title to real estate by
adverse possession. Tho facts wore about
Benjamin Clark died in 1816 owning a
considerable body of land in Mason and
Fleming counties which was, after his
-death, divided amongst his children, six
in number. After this division was made
his son-in-law, Dr. A. F. McMillen who
then resided in Harrison County, sold, by
title bond, the portion of the land that
had boen allotted to his wife, Mary Mc
Millen, to Walter Lacy, who had also
married one of tho daughters of Clarko.
The title bond was dated February 28,
1817, and immediately thereafter Lacy
took possession under it and he and bis
children and grandchildren have held
possession of it ever since. No deed was,
howover, ever made to him, as his wife
in whom the title was died in 1810 before
the purchase money had been all paid.
In 1881 John L. McMillen, a son of Dr.
Dr. McMillen, brought a suit against
Andrew Butler and others for about thirty
five acres of this land. Butler was hold
ing it at the time as tenant of Walter
Whitaker and hia sister, Mrs. Frances
Snyder, both of Boone County, Ky., and
both grandchildren of Walter Lacy.
These two were tho real parties defend'
ing tho Buit. Their defense to McMillen's
claim was the long-continued possession
of the land by themselves and those from
who they claimed which commenced in
1817 and has continued to the present, a
period of seventy years. Mr. McMillen
claimed that his right to recover the land
was not barred by limitation, on the
ground that as long as Dr. McMillen lived
hia vendeo bad a right to tho possession
of the land and that the right of tho
heirs of Mary McMillen did not accrue
until after the termination of that out
standing life estate.
Tho case was tried during tho present
week, as was stated above, in our Circuit
Court, tho trial commencing on Monday
and terminating on Wednesday, by a
verdict in favor of plaintiff, McMillen.
Wadsworth & Son and Wall & Worth
ington represented the plaintiff, and
Cochran & Son and James Barbour were
attorneys for the defendants.

Accused of Robbery.
A young man giving his name as T. C.
Kearns was arrested yesterday afternoon
by Deputy Marshal Dawson. Kearns is
wanted at Hillsboro, Ky., on the charge
of robbing one John B. Clark of $25. The
offense was committed sovoral days ago.
Roams was suspected and left. Clark
heard his man was in this city. He camo
down Wednesday, and left a warrant
for Kearn's arrest with Mr. Dawson, who
found tho accused yesterday afternoon at
tbo foot of Market street.
Kearns was taken to Flemingsburg by
Mr. Dawson to-day on the noon train,
whore he will bo held to answer the
Unsuccessful Attempt at Rescue).
A special from Brooksville Bays an
unsuccessful attempt was made tho other
night to effect an entrance through the
outside wall of tho jail into tho cell occu
pied by John M. Neaves, the parricide,
whoso trial for murder is set for November
2nd. It was evidently an attempt on tho
part of his friends to rescue him, but tho
noise aroused the family of Jailer Met
calfe, which frightened them away.
Neaves as yet has procured no counsel,
and maintains an apparent indifference
as to his fate, He converses freely with
all callers, feels no remorse in having
killed his father, and was quite indignant
when ho learned that his youngor brother,
as administrator, had retained $11 out of
each child's sharo in tho -estate with
which to placo a suitablo monument at
tho grave of his murdered father.

MHirtcous, amiablo, toll reliant, with a decent
reserve about their own affairs and a kindly

They stare and remark upon passers by; Jhey

Tho result is to divide tho aristocratic sec
tion of Coney Island into two parts. The
quiet, solicltudo loving sojourners uncon
sciously order their -affairs so that, day by
day, they are in tho habit of seeing less and
less of their fellow boarders; they f roquent tha
wild sand dunes, tho unimproved corner of
the island, or cross the marshes and tako to
the inland roads.. It must be remembered of
Conoy Island that it has como up from a dis
reputable tesorb to bo reputablo and almost
"swell." Indeed, it Is "swell" in patches, and
although tho old, bad atmosphere Is still
faintly perceptible about it, demoralizing
thoughtless peoplo a little, yet is the island
far forward on the way to respectability.

The Judge Holds That He Killed thu Offi
cer In Self-Defense
Louisville, Ky., Oot. 81. The shooting
of Oilicer Boyle by Lea M. Hedrick, which
created such a sensation last week, draw a
large crowd to tho olty court Wednesday.
Tho prisoner was discharged by Judge
Thompsons on the ground that the shooting
was done in solf-dofenso, and Hedriok left
tho court room a free man. It is supposed
by many, howevor, that tho grand jury
may indict him for the killing. Judge
Thompson neld that tha officer hivl gone be
yond his power in arresting Hedriok; that
ho had no warrant, and used intimidating
language and undue authority. The testi
mony showed that the officer reached for
his revolver before tha dofeudant drew his
In conclusion, Judgo Thompson said: "It
is proven here that, without any violent re
sistance on tho part of tho prisonor, he was
assaulted with the policeman's club and se
verely wounded, and then tbreatonod with
his plstoL I am of opinion that he had rea
sonable grounds to apprehend groat bodily
harm at the hands of the officer, and that
ho was justifiable in using what means he
had at hand to protect himself therefrom.
I think a clear case of self-defensa is made
out. Let the prisoner be discharged."
Lexington, Ky., Oct. 21. Tha sudden
disappearance of "Slick" (Charles H.) White
causes much discussion hero, especially
among horsemen, now congregated at tho
fall meeting. Mrs. Whito is apparently
muoh distressed, and says she doesn't know
anything of her husband's whereabouts.
Whito is known to have lost hoavily lately
on a "book" ha had made; and it was
thought he paid too muoh for pool privi
leges at Latonla. He hod borrowed money
from every possible source, discounting hia
notes for $300 at $270. He took in nearly
$3,000 within a few days, and this he proba
bly took with him. His partner in the pool
ing business, C. F. Simonds, late of the
Phoenix hotel, is good for any amounts due
by the Arm; but it is probable there will bo
some new deal regarding pooling privileges
