Ford. t Ths Contested Tbobtciship In ths Board of County Commissioners yester day, in the contested election case of Leonard vs. Wickersbam, A. Woodward made oath that, although Leonard's name was nsed, yet, in truth and fact, he (Woodward) was real plaintiff, and the proceedings were at his risk and expense. Proceedings were instituted by authority of Leonard, and upon his pledge that ths use of his name, as a litigant, sbonld be fully allowed. This arrangement was made because counsel of affiant thought it looked a little more seemly to conduct the litigation in the Bame of tbe incum bent than of an unsuccessful candidate. Affidavit states further, that, after appeal was granted, he bad several interviews with Leonard, who agreed still to carry on the case to a final hearing, and to give the appeal bonds: that affiant depended on Leonard, and fully intended, if Leon ard failed to give the bond, to give it him self; but, while waiting for this, Leonard, without the knowledge of affiant or any of his counsel, as he is informed, came into court and formally withdrew from the case and abandoned it Affiant states that this action was in violation of his agreement and understanding with T.onnard. and. therefore, asks the Court to so amend the reoord in the case as to allow the name of affiant to be substituted for Leonard's, aud an appeal of the case to the Circuit Court, for which he agrees to enter into proper bounds. j. An order to carry out this was pre sented by Judge Scruggs, Mr. Wood ward's attorney, but was voted down, Mr. Merriman alone voting for it.
