H. Ward. sawmill owner, in which Mr. Ward obtained damages of $125,000 by a jury trial against the board for alleged damages to the mill of Mr. Ward and expropria- v tion of the mill site for levee pur- , poses. In the petition for a new trial. !( which is taken to mean the first step 1 toward an appeal to the Supreme I Court. Arthur McGuirk. attorney for I the board. charged that .ludge ('o lumbus Reid, before whom the case I was heard. erred in his charge to the jury in several ways, and that the board cannot be campelled to pay for batture property or land held in servitude. Property on which the Ward saw mill stood, the petition charges, is public property and the board can not be lawfully made to pay for it and its possession by Ward as a mill site constituted a nuisance and prevented the free use of the land A as public quay. Exception also is taken by Mr. Me.c Guirk to the amount rendered by the jury. He charged that the Ward property was only assessed at $17,000 and taxes paid upon $19,000, whereas a vprdict had been rendered for $125,000. The request is to be heard February 16.

A short time ago more than 100 i persons who were summoned to ap, r psr ialled to show. up and Judge Leininger Issued attachments for their arrest and tl*'eatened to put them in Jail.
