In the circuit conrt Friday in the case of Ratio E. Corey against the city of Anii Arbor, the dofeadaut was given 30 days in which to move for a new trial and 90 days from this date to file and serve a bilĂ­ of exceptions, all proceedings to tie stayed except rasation of costs. The case of F. B. Whittaker vs. Cora Babcock was coiitinned on application of plaintiff. In the case of the People vs. Williani Rafl'erty, the defendant came into conrt and changed his plea of not gnilty to guilty and the courtsentenced hiin to 60 days in the county jail. Rafferty was charged with stealing a bicycle and has already been in jail about 45 days. Most of the day in court has been taken up with the case of Jacob A. Polhemus vs. William Rehfuss and Abrarn Wallace. In March 188, the defendants sold the plaintiff a team for $200. Itnmediately. or very soon after the sale, one of the horses showed symptonis of inflammation of the brain. After remaining in this condition, practically useless, ontil soinetime in July it was chloroformed. The plaintiff's claim is that in purchasing the team ,he relied ou the good judgement of defeudauts, as he, the plaiutiff was nearly blind and unable to see for himself and defendants assured him the team was all right. The defendants deny that their jndgment was. taken but claim the team was all right when they sold it. Various witnesses have been exarnined on either siete with the nsual wide divergence of evidence characteristic of a horse deal. The case is still on as the Argus goes to press. The jnry is composed of the following gentlemen : Bert D. Rose, Wm. Hay, John Burkl iser, Nelson Dobbee, Ohas. A. Morris, Wm. Tuttle, Wm. K. Ohilds, Wm. Oleaver, Michael Sage, Fred Bross, John Keelan, Willis McClure.
