i The $500,000 damage suit which H.
.M. McCaskrin brought against William
Jackson. William Ashdown; John Mil-
; ler and L. M. Magill. charging con
i spiracy, was dropped in the circuit
; court this morning, when Judge H. W.
, Olmsted sustained the demurrers of
' the defendants.
; The action was an outgrowth of the
rict here some years' uxo. Mr. Mc
' Caskrin filed a declaration in which
he charged the defendants with con
spiracy to have bin? indicted before a
special grand jury and alleged that the
; indictment, which was returned by the
: grand jury, was responsible for his
! defeat for state's attorney.
To this declaration Mr. Jackson, on
, behalf of himself and all the other de
fendants except Magill, filed a demur-
:' rer, Mr. Magill filing a demurrer in his
j own behalf. The demurrers were re
1 cently argued before the court and
taken under advisement. The court
today in discussing the legal ques
tions involved, held that the declara-
' tion did not state a cause of action,
because all of the charges made in the
declaration did not amount to a legal
; w rong for which damages could be re
covered and sustained the demurrers,
which amounts to a dismissal of the
su't. It was alleged in the declara
tion that Mr. Jackson promoted the
prosecution and collected funds for
the purpose; that Mr. Magill was the
state's attorney, who drew the indict
ments; that W. H. Ashdowii, Port Hy
mn, was the foreti'.-in of the jury re
turning the indi tni'-i.ts. and .1. Cm. Mil
ler, deputy sheriff, who served the pa

Caskrln is also pending iu the circuit
' court of Conk county agalnrt William
! Jackson. H A. Weld, C. O. Sturtz and
; I-. M. Magill. Attorneys Wild and
Sturtz are alleged to have assisted Mr.
I Magill In ilruuing the indici no nts.
I Mr. Weld at ill time th's secoi.d ac-.
j tion was started, lived 'N Chicago but
has Mnce returned to this city.
This morning in circuit court Attor
ney II. A. Weld, representing Mrs.
Olive Kt khart, .filed a motion to amend
the petition in the contempt proceed
ings brought against Florence I-yness
and her attorney, C. S. Roberts.
The amendment states that Flor
ence I.yness and Attorney Roberts did
appear in county court when the de
pendency case was up and that the
hitter did act as counsel for the for
mer. Another question is also asked
as follows of Attorney Roberts: "Did
you or did you not wppear before
Judge I! S. Hell, acting as county
judge of said county, on Sept. 2::, lflt,
wMi Florence I.yness, and if you did.
in what capacity did you appear there;
