muddle on the shoulders of Taylor himself. I
After completing the hearing of the case,
Judge Sears first sustained the motion for
a new trial made by A. O. Elllck, repre
senting the Title Guaranty and Surety com
pany, and then dismissed the rase.
The c.ise of William f.' Taylor against
John Filanck and the Title Guaranty and
Surely company was an action against a
ealoon keeper and his bondsman for losses
sustained by reason of the plaintiff's
drunkenness from liquor purchased from
trolled by the laws of tuipply and demand,
the same as all saleable things. The
cheep-! time of the year to buy a fur
overcoat Is In the spring. The cheapest
time to let the contract for mill work Is In
the winter. Mills always csrry a certain
class of expert workmen the year round
whether there Is work for them to do or
not. When work la slack In winter time
they will take orders on a cloee margin,
In order to clear even and not have to
carry their best men through the quiet
season at a loss. -Starting
with February 1 building ma-
I terlals begin to advance. Llkewlae the
accumulation of nrdeia Inclines the con
tractors to charge higher profits as the
reason Rdancex. It Is a very common
exierlence among architects along In
March, April and May and dicing the
summer to have their clients' orders
turned down by the best contractors (who
are a'waya the busiest ones) with some
thing like this: "I would like very much
la accommodate you, Mr. Blank, by giv
ing your client an estimate on his home,
but what Is the use of figuring when I
know that I cannot possibly get the men i
to do the work if I should get the Job? I
I'nless I want to take In a lot of hatchet I
carpenters, and I know that you would
not stand for that kind of work." The
result la that Mr. Slow-to-Oet-Busy Home
builder has to take estimates from the
second or third-grade contractors, who
have no scruples about employing "hatchet
csrpenters" as long as tliev csn gt the more to get Ills work done by "iMtche1

ment to settle for tinfl and received tho
monoy, Attorney 'A. 8. Ultchle negotiating
the settlement. When this defense was
made In-the course of the -trial, Taylor I
nnd his wife took the witness stand and
declared that Ritchie Induced Taylor Uri
rlgn the agreement to settle by making j
hlra think It was a contract to sell books
on the life and trial of Pat Crowe, which j
Ritchie publishes. Taylor got a verdict
for JMo. Elllck moved for a new trial. :
Two weeks ago Taylor was arrested for
a statutory crime and while In Jail signed
sn affidavit that his attorney, Yelser. In
duced him to take the witness stand and
make a perjured denial of the settlement.
This affidavit, wltn a similar one by Mr.
Tay'or. was filed in support of the new'
trial mollon. Telser then secured and
filed an affidavit by Taylor that hla af
fidavit and that of his wife In which
charges were made against Yeiser, were
secured by threats tr the penitentiary,
made by Steve Maloney anil other mem
bers of the police department.
Hiring the hearing on the new trial,
motion Taylor took the stand for tho de
fense and repudiated hia affidavit against
th ) police, lie said his vase was won by
perjury and he wanted the verdict and the
whole case "knucked out."
Judge Sears ruled that from the evidence
there can bo no doubt that Taylor and his
wife committed perjury, but Tailor's testi
mony that Yelser suborned the perjury
cannot be believed, as Taylor haa shown
himself absolutely unworthy of belief.
Therefore, the court threw the case out
of court and cxoueiatcd Mr. Yelser, who
has contended from the first that If there
was perjury, as he now believes there was,
he did not knew It ai iho time of the trial,
ni therefore Is Innocent.
