VERDICT SET ASIDE
Judge Gest In Circuit Court
Grants a New Trial of Noted
Macliin Will Case.
WAS AGAINST. PROPONENTS
Held that Jury's Findings Were Not in
Accordance With Weight of Evi
The verdict, of the Mackin will con
test, returned "at this term of court,
and by which the will probated as the
last will of the late Dean Thomas
Mackin was declared not to be his will,
was set aside today in the circuit court
by Judge W. H. Gest, and a new trial
of the case was granted. Judge Gest
set the verdict aside on a motion filed
by the proponents of the will, asking
for a new trial, on" the ground of errors
of the court in certain law points, and
(hat the verdict was not in accordance
with the weight of evidence introduced
In the case. Judge Gest in making the
ruling on the motion this morning,
stated that the main reason for set
ting the verdict aside, was his abiding
conviction that the verdict was not in
accordance with the evidence.
I.onur Aricnmenlii Mnile.
The ruling of the court was made
after the arguments on the motion had
been concluded, J. T. Kenworthy and
Rollin Sturgeon speaking this morning
on the part of the contestants. Hon.
William McEniry, who made the argu
ment for the proponents on the motion,
addressed the court three days.
After the trial of the case, which
consumed nine weeks of the term just
coming to a close, the verdict was re
turned breaking the will. A motion
was soon afterwards presented by Hon.
William McEniry and Hon. William
Jackson, attorneys for the will, asking
a new trial. The arguments have been
in progress for over a week.
The case is one which has become
noted throughout the state, and the
features of the long trial are familiar
to all who followed the accounts of the
Chnneea Mny Up Taken.
There are rumors that an effort will
be made by one side to take a change
of venue from Judge Gest, and that if
this is done, a change of venue from
the county may be applied for by the
otlier side. It is not probable that the
case will be tried again at the Jan
AJIornrjn In thr raw.
The attorneys in the case were Stur
