cuit court No. 1, yesterday, the re
sults of his suit against N'icqolas Mil

The case was hard fought and oc

points of discussion of the trial. Tes
timony introduced during the trial

residence with Glatz was recuperat
ing from wounds received in France,
at Chateau Thierry and the Arson ne-
Coghlan's claims, for damages
were based upon alleged defamatory
remarks said to have been made by
Miller and by charges filed by the
