Case of Peyton k Son vs. Mayor and
Acted I'pon Hoard File a Demurrer,
but Chancellor Abernttthjr Over
Chancery Court reconvened in ad
journed session last Monday, and
will remain in session throughout
to-morrow. A number 'of decisions
have been handed down by Chan
cellor Abernathy, but few that are
of interest to the public in general.
The case of Peyton & Sons, retail
whiskey dealers, versus the Board
of Mayor and Aldermen was acted
upon. This was a bill of injunction
filed by the complainants, to re
strain the Board of Aldermen from
enforcing an ordinance pussed some
time ago, known as the "No Screen
Law," which provided that "no
screen, stained glass, curtains or
other obstruction should be placed
in front of any place where spirit
uous liquors are sold to be drunk up
on the premises, so as to obstruct
the view from the front entrance."
The Board filed a demurrer to the
injunction, but Chancellor Aber
nathy did away with the demurrer
and ordered that the Board make
answer to the injunction at'the next
session of Chancery Court, which
convenes on the first Monday in
July. Messrs. Peyton & Son are
represented by "W. J. Webster and
Voorhies & Fowler; and the city by
James A. Kmiser, Sam Holding,
and Figuers & Padgett.
In the case of F. L. Hay, Extr., et
al., vs. Bettie Hay et al., pertain
ing to the will of the late John M.
Hay, the Board of Missions of the
Methodist Episcopal Church, South,
was allowed the sum o' $4,000.
The sale of half interest in the J.
B. Pillow place, bv Mrs. Lem Long
et al., to Col. J. W. S. Ridley, for
'$5,000, was confirmed.
The division sale to W. G. Satter
fleld of the A. W. Potter place, be
longing to Satterfleld & Jacobs, for
$7,000, was confirmed.
In the case of II. B. Titcomb vs.
Mrs. J. E. Parks et al., Mr. Titcomb
was given judgment for $2,103.5!).
E. B. Ilayburn, Esq., was sworn
in as a practitioner at this court.
