ed Burlington is Defendant in
' Suit for $20,000.
Tomorrow Is the last clay, of service
for the May term of the circuit court
mid many new cases are being fileij
this week. From present . Indications
(he docket of the May term will bu
proportionately larger thaji any forr.
ei term. Already there have been
:. new cases filed; and the number
will be Increased before tomorrow eve
ning. There will be In the neighbor
hood of 575 cases on the docket at the
opening or the term, from present in
dications. It would take something
like a year of steady Kitting for the
court to dispose of all' these cases,
even though no new ones were fi'led.
As less than UH) cases can be disposed
of each term, the number on the dock
et constantly grows larger. The need
of another judge for thfc circuit, or for
a branch court, or some other method
of handling the volume of litigation of
the county. Is' apparent.
Of the new cass filed 85 are com
mon law suits, and f.u are chancery

The matter was then referred to the

entered into an exhaustive investiga
tion, not only because of the non

It is said that the officials of the two
roads are not only willing but really
anxious or the dissolution, and that
they now concediV. that the best inter
ests of the two roads would have been
better conserved If the combine had
never beeu effected.
The official referred to says that
when the dissolution Js-effected it will
be adissolution "in fact and not mere

systems control something like -rt-0

that with their interests divided as be
