IN M'MILLAN SUIT Harney's Ruling in Litiga tion Brought Against J. A. Murray Et Al. In denying a motion for judgment upon the pleadings in the case of I). McMillan against James A. Murray and others, Judge Harncy held that during the devel plllent of a mine under a lease there are cclt.tin classes of work that must be done that could hardly be chargeable as extra The court made a ruling to this effect today in denying the motion of the plain tiff for the judgment asked. It appears that the plaintiff had a lease and contract with Mr. Murray upon the 'Tycoon mine, in which it was agreed that Mr. Murray would pay for certain work, such as sinking and timbering. The plaintiff sued for the amount claimed for extra work. The defendants filed an an swer, denying many of the allegations of the complaint, and after hearing argu intilts tlupon a motion for judgment upon the pleadings the court overruled the mo tion. Judge Harney today sustained the mo tion to strike out parts of the amended answer in the case of P. J. Brolihy against II. Kalousick and others and allowed the defense ten days in which to prepare a bill of exceptions. The action 1s one on account. The demurrer to the complaint was sus tained by Judge Harney today in the ease of Ilelming against Kropfgang. THIRTY RECRUITS SECURED Lieutenant Miller Will Move Up to Great Falls Now.
