An Important case was decided in the United Statet circuit court of appeals this morning, which seriously affects the title of the town of Everett, Wash., and the evl dence adduced in the case shows how an unfortunate widow and her half or phans were wantonly robbed of theli rights and. all that years of toll and Industry had garnered up for them. A Mexican war veteran named Hatch died years ago, leaving his wife, who wa tui Indian woman, 320 acres of land which he had taken up. Hatch died in 1890, before his land was entirely proved up. He left his wife and children to the care of E. C. Ferguson. His wife probably acting on Ferguson's advice, proved up on the land and got a per fect title to both parcels. She had 1m pllclt confidence in Ferguson, and he suggested that she give him the power of attorney, which she did without hesl tancy. He sold the property on which the town of Everett now stands for 10 an acre. The property was transferred to a man named Henry .Hewitt, who, within six months, sold it to a syndl cate for S180 an acre. The remaining 160 acres were left to tho Hatch chll dren, but as Ferguson was their guar dlan, he had but little difficulty In get tlnif the consent of their mother to al low him to dispose of the property at a good price. Mrs. Hatch brought suit in the circuit court of Washington, and It was decided that the property on which the town of Everett lies must be j . ttrtrfnw and roiurnea u " , ,., ,1 Tha nlhaF lnnrt COU1U nui w as Ferguson had given her .lan d lx. . v.m i vohfuiee for It. t"1-' " cult court of appeals this mornl.-t, 1 firmed this Judgment.
