The finding of the jury of inquisi
tion iu the case of Dr. A. E. Burr, de
claring that lie is an habitual drunk
ard, was filed in court yesterday.
The verdiot was arrived at on Jan 0
uud is that Dr. Burr has been an habit
ual druukard for tjie past year; that
he possesses property worth if 100, 000;
that he is 50 years of age and has a
wife and two daughters, Lais M Burr,
aged 18 and Natalie Burr, aged 8 years.
Court confirmed the finding of the
jury nisi, and afterward allowed At
torneys Hulslander & Vosburg, who
represent Dr. Burr, to file exceptions
They are five in number. The prin
cipal objection is that while the jury
was deliberating Charles F. Van Nort,
one of the jurors, aaidjo the others
that he live 1 near Dr. Burr and was
well informed as to his condition, dis
position, etc. He said that Dr. Burr
as mismanaging aud wasting his es
tate. That he had neglected to pay
the interest on his mortg iges and his
property would soon have to bs sold to
the injury of his family. It is also
alleged that Mr. Van Nort made other
statements calculated to prejudice the
jurors against Dr. Burr.
The exceptions also set forth that
Attorney Hawley, the commissioner
appointed by the court to conduct the
inquisition, went into the jury room
while tbo jurors were deliberating and
told them that it would make no dif
ference if they fouud Dr. Burr an hab
itual drunkard, as the whole proceed
ings could be sot aside within ninty
days. The ruling of the commissioner
is also objected to for the reason that
he refused to allow certain testimony
concerning .the manner in which Dr.
Burr managed his estate.
If the court refuses to allow thu ex
ceptions after considering the case, Dr.
Burr's attorneys will take steps to have
the case heard iu court before a jury.
Yesterday afternoon Judge Jessnp
asked the court to appoint Attorney W.
J. Hand receiver of the estate of Dr.
