On Monday morning when tho trial list
was called In court It was found that but
four cases wcro for trial. All others were
continued or settled. Tho first caso called
was that of tho heirs of Dr. John Hamscy
against C. B. Brockway, to recover a strip
of land about ten feet wide, lying between
the property of Peter Brugler and C. B.
Brockway on Third street In this town. Tho
suit was started against Rapt. Brockway In
his lifetime. M. G. Hughes bought tho prop-
crty from Mr. Brockway'3 assignee, nnd Is
now tho roal defendant. Dr. Hamscy sold
tho property to Jesse Hicks, and It is con
tended by tliu plaintiff's that tho deceased
did not cover the land In court, but that it
was left open as an alley for tho conveni
ence of Hicks, until an alloy should be
opened in the rear of tho lot. which was
subsequently done. Hicks sold to Charles
Docblcr, and Doeblcr sola to Brockway,
and Brockway fenced In the alley, and it
has so remained up to this time. Tho de
fendant claims that tho alley is an case
ment that belongs to tho property, nnd that
lt was so agreed at the time of tho salo by
Dr.Ilarascy. C. G. Baikley Is attorney
for plaintiff, and Ruawn and Herring for
the defense. The case went to tho jury
and verdict rendered In favor of defendant,
Wednesday afternoon.

Tho body of Moses Colborn of Rupert
w&b found floating In tho wide water of tho

Catawlssa Monday morning about 11
o'clock. Tho conductor of the north bound
passenger train at about 11 o'clock notified
Georgo Mcars, station agent nt ltupert,
that he had seen a body floating iu tho
Cuna'. Mr. Mears notified U. D. Quick,
section boss of tho canal and ho with ono
of his workmen went down nnd drew tho
body, upon the tow path side of tho canal.
John'G. Quick Esq. was notified and em
panelled tho following jury for tho purposo
of holding nn inquests Wm. Mcnsch, Fran
cis Lclby, William Leiby, J. W. Yinger,
James Qulck,and John. Wright After vlew
Ingthobody the jury endeavored to nscerlalu
whether It was n suicidal act or that of foul
work. Colborn was last seen nbout eight
o'clock Monday morning. Hu was tracked
from the Keg factory through tho sawdust
and mud and his footprints led directly to
tho feeder along tho loc, and Just oppo
slto tne keg factory. It having rained the
day previous, there wcro no other foot
prints visible. Further Inquiry found that

tho jury reached a verdict of "death by
drowning himself."
Mr. Colborn was about 70 years of age,
He lived at Rupert , boarding at the hotel,
for the past 23 years. Ho was a laborer in
the keg factory, under the Superlntendency
of J. W, Yinger, at this time. Tho factorv
was not working on Monday, and this to
gether with the heavy fog Monday gave
him an excellent opportunity to accomplish
his act. It Is said that on Sunday he was
seen walking near the lock, making close
observations. What Induced him to com
mit the deed is a mystery, but ho has sever
al times In the past said that he would not
trouble any one, and that when he died he
would go quick.
