Ws Arguments were begun this morn ing in the case of Charles Clements against M. B. Root & Son in which case the condition of a piece of gran ite purchased by Root is made the basis of a. refusal to pay on the fcart Of the defendant. The plaintiff Clements is a New England stone dealer' who supplied a portion of the granite used in a monument erected by Mr. Root for a customer in Ottunqrwa. After the completion of the work the patron of the defendant refused to accept the monument because of alleged flaws in the stone. The monument was. dis mantled and a portion of the stone shipped back to the dealer. This led to suit being instituted by Clements against Root to recover for the full amount of the stone's value, which is some $185.. The case, except for the arguments, was concluded Tuesday. The court granted a decree of di vorce to Eliger Belgard from Lizzie Belgard this morning, Otther matters shown pn the court calendar today are: the case of T. N. Hammersley/ vs. Brown Bros, et al., involving about $20L was settled and dismissed. H. W. Suedhting, against whom a Judgment for $500 damages was found by the jury in the Smith-Suechting slander suit, has been given until Nov. 12 to file a motion for a new trial.
