(n.b. - much of this paper is taken with the story of the murder of Michael
MCCARTY/MCCARTHY. He disappeared on September 13. His body was never really found. Wenzel KABAT was convicted of the murder and sentenced to life in prison. I'd love to hear from anyone who has information about the families connected with this murder.Other names involved in the investigation are KRUGMEIER (the District Attorney); RYAN (an attorney), CONLON the Marshall); KOCH (the sheriff) Michael MCCARTHY was one of my relatives--thanks!!)<FLAG14@aol.com>

The case of John POWERS versus Lorenz HASS, both residents of Hollandtown, which was decided in favor of POWERS two years ago before Justice E. A. BAKER and later appealed tot he circuit court, was settled out of court Monday, the case having been called for the present session of the circuit court, POWERS with drawing and agreeing to the payment of all costs. The case originally grew out of the taking up of a bull owned by POWERS, by HAAS who demanded a small amount of damages. Payment was refused and a justice court suit followed. The parties to the case have now sensibly settled their
difficulties which they should have done two years ago and thus avoided the paying out of sufficient money to have purchased several bovines of the gentleman variety.
