MAN SUES FOR FALSE ARREST IN
CONNECTION WITH CHARGE
OF ARSON.
WHEELING, Oct. ft?The damage
suit of George Michaels against Geo
Eagleson, Curt Rice and M. C. Mor
rlson was begun In Part 1 of the
Circuit court Monday morning, before
Judge Thayer Melvln. The proceedings
were late In starting, the selec
Hon of the jury taking up, considerable
time, and It was evident that the
entire day would be consumed before
the case reachej the jury.
The plaintiff sues for damages because
of alleged false arrest. In Sew
tember, 1905, the house of George
Eagleson, on Short Creek, was broken
open, and he reported the matter tc
the sheriff. The bounds from the
Moundsvtlle penitentiary were sent
for. and they were brought up by Morrison
aut^ placed on the trail. It Is
alleged lihat the animals went more
or less directly to the Michaels home,
and Arthur Michaels was arrested by
Curt Rice. The father, George Mich
aels, then came to town and to the
sheriff's office voluntarily. The case
against them was afterwards dropped
from lack of evidence, and the suit Is
brought against Eagleson for
and against Rice and Morrison tot
$5,000 each.
R. L. Robey went to Clarksburg thlr
