The bringing of the Drury will
case to an abrupt ending in the cir
cuit court of Mercer county at Aledo
the other day ea far as the proceed
ings being heard were concerned, was
a peculiar circumstance. It aeema
that after about 40 witnesses had
been examined Juror F. M. Bateman,
who stated in his examination as a
juror that he had talked with no one
about Mr. Drury's will, and had no
opinion at' to the issues involved,
went to Judge Ramsay and told him
that he had been reminded that he
had talked about the will sometime
during last fall and summer. There,
upon Judge Ramsey called the attor
neys on both sides into bis private
room and brought Mr. Bateman be
fore them. Mr. Bateman stated to
the attorneys and to Judge Ramsay
that he had held a conversation, but
had forgotten it In view of the sit
nation, the court, with the aisent of
all the attorneys engaged, discharged
Mr. Bateman. It waa then proposed
to go ahead with the other eleven
jurors, but Judge Ramcay waa fear
ful that this would not be legal, as
some of the parties to the suit are
minor children, and it is a well
known rule of law that a minor child
has no legal capacity to agree to any
thing. Considering the large inter
ests involved the judge thought it
best to take no risks which might
give cause for contention in the su
preme court He therefore dis
charged the jury from any further
oonsideration of the case, the incom
patency of Mr. Bateman making it
necessary to discharge the whole
jury eo far aa that case was con
cerned. The case was then set for
trial to begin Feb. 7.
