(3) That on the second day of February, 1903, at the village of Bemidji, Minnesota, with the ex pectation of receiving as reward certain clientage, the defendant did, without cause, provocation or excuse, in total disregard of this plaintiff's rights, maliciously, wantonly, and with DEVLISH PUR POSE AND DESIGN, in order to effect the discharge of this plain tiff and prevent him from earn ing a living in Beltrami county, write and publish of and con cerning this plaintiff, certain false, libelous and defamatory words and phrases in form of a letter written to W. H.

Gemmell, Esq., Brainerd, Minn.: "Dear Sir: There is a man by the name of Daniel Moriarty said to be in the employ of your company in this vicinity. He has been arrested twice recently, convicted both times, and there is now a warrant nut for him on a charge of felony. I am re quested by the managers of some of the largest lumber companies to write yoti about himj as they claim, and I know it to be a fact that Moriarity is raising the very devil with the men in the camps. He is constantly attacking the men and beating them when he can, and threatening to do serious in jury to such of them as he happens to be angry at. The lalLattack is said to have been made with a gun. I very much fear that we will have a murder case on our hands if he can not be got rid of. Can you give him employment elsewhere, so that soue other county will have to assume for a while the burden of the criminal prosecutions that result from his con duct? I dislike to trouble you about this matter but if he can be quietly transferred to some other point it will be a great accommodation to some of your best shippers, who do not wish me to mention their names- Thev are in constant trouble at the camps, and I have to break up the crews by sub ocenaing the men to appear aerainst Moriarity, and besides, the men are deadly afraid of him. "Yours sincerely, H. "j. LOUD."' (4) That by reason of the false, libelous and defamatory words and phrases written as aforesaid by the defendant, Loud, the plaintiff was discharged and was obliged to leave the county of Beltrami to seek other employ ment, and the plaintiff alleges that the said defendant, Herbert J. Loud, threatened and does threaten to exercise and use his power as county attorney in keeping the plaintiff away from Beltrami county and in pre venting the plaintiff from obtain ing employment in said county. (5) That the said Loud is in affluent circumstances, receiving a salary of fifteen hundred dollars ($1,500) per year: that the said Loud is the owner of village property reasonably worth three thousand dollars ($3,000), and of farm lands in Beltrami county reasonably worth and of the value of four thousand dollars ($4,000). (6) That by reason of the pub lishing of the false, libelous and defamatory words and phrases as aforesaid, and the threats aforesaid, the plaintiff has been damaged in the sum of one thous and dollars ($1,000), and has suf fered in his reputation in the sum of five thousand dollars ($5,000) that by reason of the false, libel ous and defamatory matter pub lished as aforesaid the plaintiff has suffered mental agony and pain and has been disgraced among his fellow men to his dam age in the sum of two thousand dollars ($2,000). Wherefore, plaintiff demands judgment against the defendant in the sum of eight thousand dollars ($8,000), together with his costs and disbursements herein. CHARLES W.
