The. sec ond suit Is brought by Mr. Powell as trustee of the estate of a. M. Delaney to recover for the benefit of the creditors. Abuse of process Is alleged. And these are. not the only shots that Mr I'owell hnd In his locker. He said Mon day that he would Immediately hrlnK n third action, against '. U and n. P. Woodbury, and V. A. Woodbury as FUicty, In chancery, to recover S.".ntv). This, is thevamount of the bond filed by the Woodburys to Insure Mr. Powell against any damage that might accrue to him from their action In restraining htm by injunction from selling at public auction tho Hotel Hurllnston property last March, Powell & Powell and V.

Woodbury was Interviewed, or rather he wasn't by a Free Press reporter. He said ho didn't hav anything to say, and stuck to It. Ho ad mitted, however, that the writs had been served, but Sheriff Allen admitted that, nnl so did Mr. Powell. The plea in the first action boss over the whole ground, back to May S, 1A09, ' in day whon G. M. Delaruy qult lalmed the Hotel Burlington property 1 Mr. Powell as trustee, Mr. Delnney I elng at that time possessed of said I n-perty In fee simple. On the 17th f Sentoniher in the samo year It Is further alleged thnt Mr. Delaney ex e iled to Mr. Powell an agreement by the, terms of which the latter had complete control of tho Hotel Burling ton property, to manage and detormlno upon the snle of tho same. This was In consideration of $7,000 advanced by Mr Powell to apply on the payment of the unsecured Indebtedness of Mr. Delaney. On tho 10th day of May, 1909, Mr. Powell took possession of the hotel and had complete control of It, with the exi option of the bar, down to Januarj s 1910, when the property vac partially destroyed by fire. Also Jir.

The deed wns dated March 14, 1910. Thereupon, tho plon alleges, "tho defendants Woodbury loudly rlnlmed thnt thoy had tho tltlo to tho hotel premises aforesaid" and formed n stock company with others for the "avowed" purpose of building a hotel on tho lte. 1'uither, nn Injunction wns served on Marih 2.", 1!10, on Mr. Powell and J. 11. Henderson, administrator, the hill of complaint being signed by (1, M. Delnnej, l U Woodbury, and 15. 1'. Woodbury, preventing tho salo of tho property. The bill of complaint set up, II in alleged, thnt Mr. Powell had collected of lnurnnco companion after the fire, tho sum of J39, t'CO mid t lint he hnd failed to account for the money, also that Mr. Powell had con trol of the bur and had threatened to close It iii and that ho refused to ac count I" ti c Woodburys for his manage ment of t h- hotel business or tn Inform them of t e amount of money necessary tn redeem the property, they having pur chased It iif Delaney. Moreover, the bill of complaint said thnt the Wondbur s were willing to pay the full amount of all Indebtedness on the property ni.d they asked for a final ne count of his management from Mr. I'ow ell. In the plea In Mr. Powell's suit It Is held that allegation' were made In the com plaint thnt 1 e was a defaulter and that these and other allegations were malic iously false and were known to be false by the motors nnd that It wns dono to In jure his goi.d rainc and credit In the com munity. t'p to the ?".tli of Mav, 1010. when the Injunction wa-- withdrawn, Mr. Powell was prevented fp'tn disposing of the prop erty. Mr. Powell says that thu bill of complaint and injunction were served for the sole purpor of preventing him from erecting a botil thus killing competition with the Van N" .". After Mr. Pov ell secured an option on the site of the old Ameilcnn House from .1. K. Hocan on April S, 1910, he says the Woodburys no longer wanted the Hotel Burlington property and decided not to carry out their contract with Mr. De laney. They, therefore, re-conveyed It to him. The plea further says: nd the plaintiff further avers that on account of the fact that, despite the ef forts and Injunction of defendants, a com petitive hotel was to be built on tho American House site, and because tho de fendants were convinced that they could not prevent by the bill of complaint and Injunction proceedings a new and com petitive hotel from being erected in the cltv of HurllnRton, they withdrew their suit and abandoned all pretence that they Intended tn build a hotel, and the Hotel Burlington site was depreciated In valno for hotel purposes by their Injunction pro ceeding;." The property was sold on June 4, 1910. for $17,(1 to S. II. Miller of Burlington nnd Inasmuch as Mr. Powell stood ready to purchase the property for a syndicate, and pay $2.",oyi, the Woodburys were re sponsible for n conslderablo loss. Mr. Powell rays that he Is the largest secured creditor of Mi. Delaney and that the Indebtedness to him secured by mortgage on the real estate amounts to upwards of $27,v,0. "So that by reason of said In Junction and meddling on tho part of the defendants Woodbury and said action bo Instituted by them as aforesaid, malicious ly and without probable cause, plaintiff has been damaged In his security and has suffered great Ioks." "Wherefore, and by means of the premises, the said plaintiff has been and Is greatly Injured In his said credit and reputation and said Hotel Burlington real estate has been much depioclated and diminished In value and said defendants have, without any probable cause, dam aged and Injured the plaintiff, maliciously r.nd unlawfully, to the damage of the plaintiff, ns he says, the sum of $2',i1f for which, with Juct costs, i.e brings his suit " Thti endeth the tale of the plea In the first suit. The other, as has been --Hid, brought In behalf of the crcdltc. - by Mr. Powell as trustee nnd upon the nue grounds. Anything mny happen ncv and It may happen at any time.
