Imitortant Decision In Damage Case.
An exceptionally interesting cas-o
was the damage suit of lssau Shep
hclifton against ("'corgi' A. Clopiue.
(5. W. Clopiue and David Clopiue. in
the district court of Franklin county
at Hloomington, Neb., which came to
a conclusion last week, Hoth parties
in the suit are farmers living in the
Republican river valley, and the
plaintiff, who lived on the lower por-
turn of tho valley, alleged that tho
water Hooding from the land of the
Clopines, who live above him, did con
sidcrable damage to his land and pro
perty each year, and he sought
for damages. The ease has been
pending for several years, and at trial
last week a large number of witnesses
were on the stand for both sides.
The members of the jury were driven
through the Republican river valley
to view the scene of controversy. The
case was argued before the jury by
Attorney W. S. Morland of McCook
Neb., and Attorney A. 11. Hryan of
I'lpomingtou, for the plaintiff, and
Attorney Owslev. Wilson of Lincoln,
and Attorney J. A. 1 lllack of Has
tings for the .defendants. Attorneys
Horsey and Mcllrew were also employ
ed by this defense. After being out
fifteen minutes the jury rendered a
verdict in favor of the defendants.
The matters involved in this case
ale of general interest thoughout the
state of Nebraska, and especially in the
Republican valley, where similar con
ditions are quite common. The court
held that defendants were not respon
sible for the laws of nature, and that
the statutes of the state could not re
quire them to provide means to divert
the water from its natural course.
A rather unusual feature of the ease
was that three of tho four attorneys
w ho presented the case to the jury
were frontiersmen in that part of the
country. Attorney W. ,s. Morland,
who won the famous Dewey murder
case in Thomas county. Kansas, for the
defense. J. A. I'. lllack and Owsley
WiNon were on the plains in i ST'.'
They lived a cowboy life and spent much
time at hunting bnllalo. Wilson hunt
ing this now almost extinct animal for
the Denver market. Attorneys lllack
and Wilson were broncho busters in
their early days, and both have tamed
many wild horses which they lassoed
on the plains. Lincoln Dailv Star.

BADLY INJURED IN RUNAWAY
Mrs. Dr. Hall Sustains Broken Arm
Sen Lleyd Also Injured.
While Mrs. Dr. Hall, wife of tho
present county coroner, was driving
near Cowles Sunday evening with her
son Lloyd, the horses became unman -
ngcable and ran away. In the mean -
I time a singletree broke, lotting the
tongue fall to the ground, which made
ini'ttor.s worse. The horses wore
brought to a stop by a hitching rack
in front of tho Right Place (llennett
.V Straeder's store) in Cowles, throwing
out Mrs. Hall and her son, clashing tho
former against a heavy chain and
breaking her right arm between tho
elbow and tho right shoulder. and bad
lv stunning and bruising her son. Tho
buggy was utterly demolished. Parties
who witnessed the runaway say that
it was a miracle that both were not
killed, considering the circumstances
of tho accident.
