It is reported thnt Barney Jordon has
had n operation performt at Beatrice
to their examinations of the creek. He
saw two dams and Mr. Sturdivant had
said to him that he would see that Mr.
Snyder d-d not get any water.
Mr. Walker and Mr. Couley testilled
in turn to having been on the premises
of Mr. Sturdivant and having seen dams
which obstructed the water and having
seeii the water liowingover the meadow.
Mr. Sturdivant thn took the stand in
hie own de fen to. 11J ten tilled that the
principal dam had been out since last
November but that he had constructed n
smaller dam so that the water would
settle and be tit for his cattle to drink.
Tli.it this dam did u l ilwU ui't the flow
of water and (hat the sediment caused
by the cattle standing in the water was
responsible for the overflow of tlie creek
on the meadow. That he had furrowed
-around -de small dam so as to allow iihe
water to return to the creek. He did
not clean out the creek because the in
junction prevented him from darning it
and it would take the most of his time to
keep it clean with a shovel. He was
questioned by the court in regard to the
u.m of a rifle and explained that he used
it because tlie men with whom he was
talking were considered bud men one of
them having served a term in the pene
eysof the suite to see that the law is en
