After two ami a half days'of vexatious
litigation, the case of Nolauil vs. the Cily
o Ashevillc was ended last night at V
o'clock, the jury returning a verdict find
ing as facts that t he da mages com plained
of by plaintiff were occasioned by the
neglect of the cily officials, but that the
plaintiff was also guillv of contributory
neglect. The elVecl of lhc verdict, there
fore, is to defeat the recovery of the dam
ages sued lor by the plaintiff. The suit
was brought by the plaintilV to recover
damages to the amount of $lM,oiio, al
leging that the health of his family had
been injured to that extent by reason of
the negligence of the city authorities in
permitting the depositing of large quan
tities of rubbish and vegetable matter in

of our local union will give a lot for the
location of desirable buildings. The
most important resull of ibis establish

people who know little of its merit. For

Tin- iiistoHitc is to be removed and
I'.'itton ;iveum- will j-el it.
At Ic-ist tluit is what a prominent cifl'i-
ti.il .-mployeil in Unit institution inform
ed n litizi.n representative Inst nijlit.
n lien asked lor the faets concerning
the removal the L'entleman said:
"It is the intention of postmaster Can
non to remove the postoHicc from its
present location early during the coming
month, and lo that cud he has alreadv
applied to the postal authorities at
Washington lor permission to make the
change in site. His application was only
made a lew days since, and consequently
nothing has liccn heard of it yet, but it is
almost certain that the necessary permis
sion wiil n,, i ,c withheld.
"If the permission is granted, and there
is no iloulil in my mind concerning that
point, the postollice will lie removed
admit September III, to the new
llarliiiis building on Palton avenue.
And the reasons for this removal arc
easily given when it is taken into con
sideration the lack of room anil con
veniences liy w hich we arc now handi
capped iu our present location. There is
nothing like enough room for a speedy
and satisfactory distribution of the
heavy mails which wc handle every dav,
and iu the way of needed conveniences
there arc simply none. Again, the pro
posed new iiiartcrsarc three hundred feet
nearer the court house than the present
site, and it is Mi- I '.-i V i.i:..r ,1
" tl Kit. il
cater number of people who receive
ail through the Ashevillc office will be
benefitted by the change. These are only
lew of the many other reasons, and
nod ones, too, that miuht be inV,-n C,-
the proposed removal of the oilice.
I Hear that petitions have been sentto
Washington signed by certain citizens of
Aslicvillc asking that Mr. Cannon's ap
plication lor permission to remove the
illicc be rcfus d, but I don't think that
these petitions will amount to much
when the change is asked ami son,. lit
by a much greater number of people.
However, I do not speak authoritativelv
hi this point and do not wish to be
iiiolcil as having IIIIV lirefeivnrp in llin
matter of locatio beyond my own indi-
iilual coinlort in the proper and satis-u-'orv
discharg. of mv - duties' to the
postollice department and the neonle
ho receive tlieir mails at this office.
"And, by the way, 1 almost foriret to
mention the fact that owiii" i tl.
rowded and cramped situation of our
present quarters a free mail delivery sys
tem is not to be thought of, for the one
reason only that the room is totally in-
nllieient for the transaction of that most
important and difficult branch of the
postal service. As soon as the chantre of
ncalion isell'cctcd application for a free
nail delivery system in Ashevillc will be
untie, and that the application will re
civc the endorsement of the Washington
iflicials 1 am quite certain. Hut there
will be no free mail delivery for some
years to come if we arc compelled to re
main in a place w here even o,-,l,',,n,-
mails are handled with great difficulty
ind disadvantage all around.
"There is a slight possibility that the
iilliec will not be removed. 1 admit, but
the people will be the mourners at the
Mineral and not ourselves. We believe the
people ol Ashevillc desire the most rili.
liciil postal service that can be given
them, and with this belief postmaster
Cannon is iloini' what he coiis. ;, t;,,ui..
believes to be the right thing in asking the
ilcpnrtmciil lor permission to change the
location of the Ashevillc postortiee."

marks with the assertion that "li,
the change is made the postollice will lie
hcttci managed than it has ever been be

John P. Collin, representing the above
