HITCHCOCK OF TYLER COUNTY. SiSTERSVILLE, W. Va., Aug. 27. t-a nouy coniusiea cnai Luui\ IIIUUL' ILL the court of Justloe G. L. Lowther yesterday, In which the mental condition of Dr. C. B. Hitchcock, a well known physician; was investigated and decided to be sound. Dr. Hitchcock resides In Friendly, four njiles south of here, and year or, sir-ago 2&e"#as conflned-ltrtfitrltrsrrrfV asylum at Weston for a Short time. He was released shortly afterwards, and after spehding a few months in Pittsburg, retufned to Friendly and resumed the practice of medicine. The complaint against him this time was made by Prosecuting Attorney r. M. Underwood, at the Instance of P. H. Anderson, who lives at Friendly. Fully a dozen witnesses from that towq we're summoned to tell the court what they knew of him. Great Interest was manifest at the trial this afternoon; a large throng were attracted to the court room, many being unable to get In for want of room; and it was nearly 6 o'clock before the case was determined. - - - ' It developed at the hearing that Dr. Hitchcock was addicted to the use of liquor and drugs to such an extent that he would become irrational at times; and on some occasions he was annoying to his family and neighbors. It was also shown that a fire broke out in 1ils house a short time ago, and the complainants attempted to bring out that the doctor set Are to the house himself. But the evidence on this point was very flimsy; and in fact most of the witnesses from Friendly testified In his favor. Several doctors were questioned as to his mental condition, but they were unable to say much against It His wife and two daughters furnished evidence favorable to him; and towards (he 1st' ter part of the hearing It became plain that the complainants had not succeeded In making oat a case against him. At the conclusion of the arguments the court immediately announced his decision that the evidence against the defendant was Insufficient to warrant hlB being sent to the asylum, and ho was released at once. t. ft. Slackmarr and Kimball t Sug<fen represented the State; while the defendant was represented by J. H. tffrfdkfln*. DAMAGE SUIT IN C I I PIDPICC ur nr 11* viiiullu CORPORAL TANNER SUED BY FRANK ?
