Tho Circuit couit has affirmed the
decision of tho lower courts which
fined "Slick" Overly for fishing with
a soino iu tho Maumeo river.
Overly had raised tho question of
tho jurisdictionof tho courts, claim
ing that tho fishing wns done on the
Lucas county sido. Attorney E. G.
McClelland and Prosecutor Ladd
held that it was done on tho Wood
county side. Overly claimed that
tho fishing was done in tho main
channel of tho rivor between Island
No. 1 and tho Lucas county side, be
ing moro than half way to the bound
ary of the latter county.
Tho prosecution hold that where
there are two channels in a Btream,
which divides two political bodies of
land, tho center of tho main channel
is tho boundary line not tho mere
center of tho river. As Overly was
shown to have fished south of tho
center of tho main channel between
Island No. 1 and Lucas county they
claimed he was in Wood county ter
ritory, and the courts havo.just up
held them in their opinion. Tho case
waB a peculiar one.

Much sentiment exist among Wood

Ever since tho mysterious pardon
ing of Bill Downing, there havo been
many daily expressions to the sheriff
that have led him to take this step.

believe that the application for the
pardoning of Mr. Downing would not

board paroled Downing through tho
solicitation of somo of his Toledo
friends. The county officials want to
make it possible to adequately punish
pickpockets and others, when once
they havo caught them. This latter is
hard enough without having all their
work undone in so short a time.
