The hearing la now on before Judge Hul bert. Approached by real estate agent? of the railway the farmers refused to listen to any price within reason, according to the testimony of J. O. Hibbard, a real eatate man who has obtained the right of way for line*, and who acted for the corporation. The owners of the property over which the contest la being waged are John P. Kuhn and his wife. Mar garet, and Leonard, Mary’. George, Michael. Elizabeth and Joan fcpren ger and another of the family, Mrs. Mary Miller. The tract lies between the Seren and Elght-m lie-run., three-quarters of a mile east of Van Dyke-are. E. C.

Although the fair price of the property was declared by the real eatate experts to be $250 an acre. Mr. Hibbard, who had been author ized to act for the Grand Trunk, de clared that the Kuhns wanted $2,000 an acre, while Springers were un willing to listen to anything less than $5,000 an acre. The agent had been authorised to offer S4OO an acre la order to obviate condemnation proceedings and to expedite the pur chase of the property. This was the limit price, however, he said. Under the direction of Judge Hul bert and Deputy Prank Belhart the Jurors were taken In a private car doling the morning to look over the lead tor themselvee. Mach land surrounding the 17- gem tract has been purchased by the company. It asserts. WED4OYEARS, SEEKS UIVORCE Joseph Lachmum Makes Win* daws Rattle With His Tale of Marital Infelicity Joseph H.
