OTTO CASE IS SET PRIMARIES OF
Will be Tried Before Judge Cest
in Circuit Court Tomorrow.
LARGE ESTATE IS INVOLVED
Plaintiff Seeks Annulment of Deed
- Made to Daughter and
Hearing of the suit of Mrs. Cather
ine Otto against her daughter, Mrs.
Laura F. Schmid. and the latter's hus
band. A. F. Schmid. in which she
seeks to recover her property, which
she assigned over to them several
years ago. is set before Judge V. H.
Gest in the circuit court tomorrow
It is a chancery case and therefore
there will be no jury calied. This
morning the defendants filed with the
clerk an abstract of the testimony
taken before the master in chancery,
F. H. Kelly. There is a mass of this,
probably one hundred pages. The
plaintiff was given by the court until
tomorrow morning to accept this draft
of the proceedings before the master
or to file any amendments thereto that
she may desire to.
The Otto-Schmid case has been
pending for many months in the cir
cuit court. There is involved property
of the value of between JlS.ooit and
$20,000. Mrs. Otto has passed her
three score and ten. She makes se
rious allegations against her daughter
and her husband, the latter the consta
ble in South Heights, charging that
they accomplished the deeding of her
property to her daughter through un
Say Null Are Thrtitenrd.
As a last resort to force her to com
pliance with their desires, the plaintiff
avers that the Schinids were arrang
ing to have her brought into the
county court to have her sanity in
quired into. They told her that they
were acting for her interest when thev
sought her property, so she charges
frightening her by tales of suits for
damages that were threatened against
her. The Schmids deny all these al
legations. They say that the old lady
has been misled by outsiders, ami that
lif let alone she would be satisfied with
the present arrangements; that they
are taking care of her property bet
ter than she is able to do. and afford
ing her every comfort.
Four YVrrkx of Civil CnnrH,
The current week will be taken up
entirely with consideration of matters
not requiring a jury. The jury will
report next Monday afternoon at
o'clock. The ensuing four weeks will
be occupied with the civil docket. This
probably will carry the term well into
April, and whatever time there re
mains before the opening of the May
term will be devoted to the settlement
of issues in rases that will come up
for trial at thai term.

TY OPEN TILL 7i30
The democratic primaries are on be
tween the hours of 5 o'clock this af
ternoon and 7:30 this evening. It
ought not to be necessary to reiterate
the duty that all party members owe
not only to their party, but reaching
beyond that, to good government.
connection with these primaries. And
yet The Argus feels that should leave
no opportunity for the charge of being
remiss in its own obligation throu
neglect in any possible respect to urge
upon the members of the party that
they fail not in that which should seem
plain to all the duty of voting in their
respective primaries and thus attest
ing their approval of clean and fai
methods in local politics.
In the satisfaction of knowing that the
party organization is in the keeping
of the true and representative element
of the party, it would seem no more
than necessary to ask and to expect
that it be kept so. The domination of
any political organization can onlv pa-
from the control of those who have it
at heart through negligence and indif
ference. If this proves characteristic
of today"s primaries, the party may
suffer, and in such unfortunate event
it can blame onlv itself.
The polls will be open until 7:30, at
places in the various wards designated
in the official call appearing on another
