The case of the claim of William J. Webster, of Milan, against the estáte of Jas. Waugh, deceased, was settled yesterday between the parties. The Argus has published at length the faets in controversy. Webster worked for Waugh, and made a contract to receive eertain property for his labor in eonducting a eider mili and working his ffirm. The contract was not signed by Mrs. Waugh, and on this ground was thrown out by the supreme court. Webster then revived the hearing of clai'i s in the probate court and put in his claim for labor. This was allowed by the probate court, and appealed to the circuit court by the administrator, Alfred Davenport. It is understood the settlement was made on the basis of the costs expended by the executor, they being paid by Webster, and the heirs deeding him the property. Randall & Jone represented Webster and E. B. Nornfc the estáte. One of the heiis, Naham Waugh, died at Gaylord last September. The claim has been in litigation since June. 1898.
