have filed a petition on their own bo
half In the probate court as crodltors
of tho estate of Matt Besloff, deceas
ed, for tho removal of V. A. Paine as
administrator of tho ostato.
The petition alleges, that at the
tlmo of his death Bosloff had threo
actions pending in the Justice's Court
for the recovery of tho sum of $236.80
and that he also had $66 In the First 1
National Bank; that the appointment
of Palno was procured by Attorney :
LoFovre, who represented tho partita
opposed to Besloff in these actions,
and was mado for tho purposo of dis
missing the actions and not In the
Interest of the Besloff estato. It fur- '
tbor alleges that the bond given by
