The suit of Frank Walker Triplet vs.
1). M. Jones et al.. was called up in
district court last Monday on a motion
by the plaintiff's attorney, A. X. Sul
livan, to set aside the dismissal of the
action n the ground that it was ob
tained by fraud and misrepresentation.
As.lcM'KXAL readers will leuieuiber.
Triplet is the old colored man who was
caught in the "washout" of last sum
mer, and who afterwards brought suit
for damages against the parties alleged
to have administered 1 he "ducking."
Triplet was put on the stand and ad
mitted that he had signed a dismissal
of the suit in return for $12. and when
he furtlcr stated that he had consulted
Ins attorney before accepting the
money. Judge Chapman promptly ruled
that the dismissal must stand. It was
the general opinion that the old gen
tleman had a good case, but w hen it is
taken into consideration that it cost
$12 to yell "more water,'" it seems to
have been a rather expensive yell.
