(By United Press Leased Wire.)
CHICAGO, April 22.—Dr. L. C. H.
E. Zeigler is entitled to $100,000
from the estate of Mrs. J. H. Mc-
Vicar, as provided by a contract he
held to furnish her medical treat
ment while she lived. The supreme
court entered a final order in the
case today. The contract on
which the suit was based was made
on July 19, 1880, and Mrs. McVicker
died in California August 24, 1904.
During this period of more than
five years, according to the evi
dence presented to the jury in
Judge TuthlU's court, two years
agg, Dr. Zeigler gave his profes
sional services whenever called up
on, relying solely on tho validity
of his contract for remuneration,
which was to be paid from Mrs.
when Insley refused to apologize
to Johnson for remarking in court
last Tuesday that the vent
barrister's sickness which
the trial was probably faked.
Johnson struck Insley in the face
and the newspaper man placed his
hands on the lawyer, who is past
72 years old. When Reed attacked
Insley, former Appellate Justice C.
