the grand jury room know sj what the re
suit is to be, but there were men around
the courthouse yesterday willing to. bet
that Epping will not be indicted.

pare ; in the second, third, fourth and
fifth, strikes; sixth, two pins; seventh,

Last night, after being out about
twelve hours, the jury in the Cederson
case brought in a verdict for $5000 dam
ages, this being the amount sued for and
the highest damages the law allows in
the state for the life of an individual.
There is quite a difference between this
verdict and the 500-dollar one rendered
a short time ago in the Watkins case,
which goes to show how likely a jury is
to bring an unexpected verdict. There
is no doubt that the O. R. & N. Co. will
appeal the case to the supreme court,
and it may be a question of a long time
before it will be finally settled.
