ly by the Court after a dlecussion be

point and ib Appearing in the Hyde caBe
Mr. Ileney asked if the case could not
be set for some time in December and
was informed that Mr. Gearin cannot
try it next month, for the reason that
li is time will all be fully occupied then
with other cases.
"The Attorney-General is anxious to
have this trial diapoml ot as soon as
possible," replied Mr, Ileney, "but lean
fee that I cannot do otherwise than give
way to the imperative nccoHeities of the
attorneys engaged iu this cane."

Sheriff Files Annual Itiort Willi the
The memhers of the county court
consisting of County Judge Wonacott
and CommiHHloners Nichols and Ryan
convened In an adjourned session
yesterday for the purpose of In
vestigating the annual report of the
sheriff, preparatory to its approval.
In brief, the report sets forth the
amount charged on the assessment
rolls by tho clerk; the amount of
sheriff's assessment; penalty and in
terest for delinquency, penalty, in
terest and costs on delinquent cer
tificates; amount collected and turn
ed over to the county treasurer; the
amount of rebate allowed; amount
delinquent certificates sold, amount
of delinquent and unsold real and
persona! property; errors and double
assessments, and the amount oil
hand at the present time.
The report shows the grand total
charged on the rolls by the clerk at
$355,373.52, an amount somewhat
In excess of that of former years.
Tho increase is due principally to
the fact that the valuations have ma
terially increased the past two years.
Another reason for the notable In
crease in the total assessment is the
fact that several pieces of land were
assessed in the year 19ns, which pre
viously had been omitted from the
roll through error.
Out of a total of 155.373.52. there
remains yet to lie collected the sum
of $13, 217.51. This amount will be
realized by the delinquent sale of tho
property designated in the report as
