The Famoon Woodmen ;.
The Fulton Journal has the follow
Jjdge Crabtree decided against tbe
motion to dismiss the ease of the 6tate vs.
tbe Modern Woodmen of America and it
will be docketed for the next term of
cou t. It is getting to be rather a mouldy
old chestnut and all the reasons tbat can
be adduced for hot dismissing it are that
it furnishes pre fit able employment for a
few lawyers, and to dismiss would be
very uncompimeptary to the efficiency
of State Auditor Pavey and Attorney
General Hunt. It will probably be dis
missed af..er the next campaign for re
pub' ican nominations for state officers is
