At the trlal Overman testlfled as to a great loss? sevornl thousand dollars?he sustalned hy tho unjust cancellng of hls contract to furnish wood. Slnro the trlal and appeal an affldavlt hy hlm has been! found in the volumlnous evidence in' the famous McBee-Atlantlc and Nortii i Carolina recelvers hlp case, In whlch he j affirmed that the terms on whlch he: was furnlshing wood for the Atlantic! and North Carolina were almost ruln-' ous, and convcylng the Id^a that the' contract was hardly worth foollng wlth.
