Exciting Time in Justice Murrie's Court Yesterday.
Excitement and what appeared for a time might develop into a fist fight, was witnessed yesterday in Justice Murrie's court when the case of J. A. Ryan against C. W. Heydecker was heard.
Ryan sued to recover damages from Heydecker for alleged spoiling of hay in his barn, Ryan renting his place from Heydecker. He charged that Heydecker butchered some cattle in his barn without his permission and ruined a large amount of hay and therefore he sued for damages.
The decision of the jury was in favor of Heydecker.
Attorneys' Set To.
It was when Attorney E. J. Heydecker, for his brother, C. W., said to Attorney E. V. Orvis that he thought it was quite unprofessional of him (Orvis) to take up such a case and made some other insinuations that Mr. Orvis became much incensed.
The attorneys got white in the face and finally Mr. Orvis blurted out in anger as he listened to what the other was saying about him:
"If you keep that up, I'll knock you down." With that Mr. Heydecker seemed to realize that things were getting rather warm and he changed his mode of tactics.
Brother Also in Words.
Atty. C. T. Heydecker appeared as a witness against his brother, C. W. Heydecker and it was after he had testified and was leaving the office that he said he would telephone over a certain date that his brother, E. J., spoke up vexation and told him he did not want any of his volunteer assistance.
