District Court

The Gazette
November 26, 1902

Last week’s session of district court was “short and sweet,” occupying only a portion of two days — Monday and Friday. In addition to our last report, the following business was transacted:

In suit of village of Bernice vs. Wm. F. Cox, on charge of retailing liquor without license, the sentence of the mayor imposing a fine of $40 upon defendant was sustained. Cox was also convicted of similar offense in case of State of Louisiana against him, but execution of sentence in this case was stayed during good behavior.

In suit of S. W. Williamson vs. J. A. Gresham et al., judgement was rendered in favor of plaintiff decreeing him the owner of the property in question.

Judgment was rendered in favor of plaintiff for $121 in suit of J. G. Trimble vs. A. Miller Edwards.
