The circuit court this week is presided over by Judge Lane, of the Lenawee circuit. The judge has made an excellent impression . He is a gradúate of the University and decidedly of a judicial frame of mind. Abram Gorslin vs. Dewitt Bucklin was tried Monday and submitted to the court upon proofs in open court. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday forenoon was taken up in the trial of two red line wheat notes. They were brought against George and Fred Alber on notes of $300, given at the same ,time and for a] purchase of 20 bushels of wheat at $15 each. Clearly the wheat agents had managed togetS30 a bushei . The defence of the second case was that the note was foi'ged, through.the genuineneas of the signature was not really disputed. The flrst case of Henry Leismer vs. Alber & Alber was given to the jury;Wednesday and after being out several hours the jury were unable to agree. They stood eleven to one in favor of the defendants. The second case was that of Charles M. Webb vs. George Alber and Fred Alber and in this case the jury rendered a verdict of nocause of action. The wheat agents had sold both the notes, evidence being introduced tending to show both Leisimer and Webb innocent purchasers. The fact that they bought without knowledge of what the notes were given for was controverted by the defence. Charles Ë. Davisvs. John G. Wagner. Judgemnt of non-sint with costa for def endent was entered Tuesday and set aside Wednesday and the suit was discontinued, defendants custs being taxed at $20.
