This, is thevamount of the bond filed by

last March, Powell & Powell
and V. A. Hullard are tho at

Brown .fc Hopkins, presumably, on the
other. Some dust will h kicked up when
they get together in court.
li. P. 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,

Thereupon, tho plon alleges, "tho

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

them of t e amount of money necessary

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Injunction wa-- withdrawn, Mr.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 $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

"Wherefore, and by means of the
