EGAN DISBARMENT LIFTED
South Dakota Supreme Court Modifies
Order of Suspension.
Pierre, S. D., Dec. 29. By the unan
imous decision of the supreme court
the most spectacular case of disbar
ment and reinstatement to practice
ever sprung in this state has ended,
and George W. Egan will again be one
of the attorneys of the state, after
noon the first day of next year, the
right going to him as a present for
the new year.
Egan came into the state from Iowa
t2 prosecute the Kauftuian murder
case in Minnehaha county, and from
that time on has been In the lime
light In one manner or another. It
not before the court he has been be
fore the people politically asking sup
port as a much persecuted man, and
on the strength of such a campaign
once secured a majority of votes for a
county office he could not fill and later
came near enough to the nomination
for governor to give a number of poli
ticians the shivers.
Now that he has been restored to
his legal standing after retraction of
all bla attacks on the Judiciary In his
campaign, he can build up the law
practice he started and the field of
his endeavor will not be handicapped.
