The attorneys for the paiutiff iii the f 10,000 libel suit of William Judsou vs. Selby A. Moran, have noticed the case for trial at the next term of the circuit court, which begins its sessions Dec. 5. This case, when it comes np, will draw a crowded house aiid there is no danger of a settlement between the parties. As is well known, the suit is based upon statements iu the Register that the sheriff had boasted of illegal practices on election day. The action is one of criminal libel and if a judgment is obtained against the defendant he will either have to pay it, or be pat in jail, if the plaintiff elects to pay bis board there. The interests at stake are so great that the case will undoubtedly be a hard fought one.
