The attention of the Chief has been
called to the opinion of thosupretuo
court in the case of Rathjiui against
tho Woodmen Accident Association
and thu very complimentary remarks
mode by Judge Barnes concerning Dr.
Moranville and his testimony iu that
caso. Those who heard the trial of
mo caso in mo district court will re
member thai four doctors testified,
uud, of them all, Dr. Morauvlllo was
the only one who testltlod Tor the de
fense, Mis. Rathjeii. Judge Humes
makes theso allusions among others to
Dr. Mot anvllle's testimony:
"One Dr. Moranville, a physician of
more than .1," ye.us experience and
practice, who appeal s from his evi
dence on both direct, and cross-examination
to have been familiar with
eases of like nature, etc.
"It is strenuously contended that
tho district couit erred lu iccelving
the testimony of Dr. Moranville over
the defendant's objection. That ob
jection seems to hue boon limited to
the eomK'teiicy of the witness. As
above stated the testimony of Dr.
Moranville settled the question of his
competency us an expuit witness be
yond nil question. He was sklllfully
cross examined at. gteat length by
counsel for the deteiidaut, and acquit
ted himself in au admirable intinuur."
This is au unusual compliment for a
supt erne com t to pay to a physician's
testimony, nnd tho doctor and his
friends should appieolato it very
