A good description ot his assailant could not be as the pier was verv dark at the time the asSault committed.

June law fcuit in prospect ever the estate of the late George Dolllver. In case suit is brought E. L. Cur- the duly appointed administra- tor will be the plaintiff and L. R. Wood will be the defendant. The threatened suit over the inability of the two parties to reach an agreement relative to the exact amount of money that Mr. Wood as custodian of certain belonging to the late George should turn over to the administrator. There Is a difference ot About between them. Mr. Wood expressed a iivgneu to turn over I2EOO even while the administrator de- mands as a or m lieu thereof proper from Mr. Wood to show that he has ex- pended the difference on from George Dolllver or wife. The estate ot what was left of the received by Mr. Dolliver on January from the Claflln in the settlement then effected of a suit which Dolll- ver had started to break the will of his first wife. Tho second Mrs. Dolllver died IB and Mr. Dolllver a month later.

On February 3 Mrs. Doliiver drew according to the administrator and per Mr. Wood. On February 4 who was getting rid of the money at a rapid rate according to either is charged by the admin- istrator with having drawn and by Mr. Wood with The administrator and Mr. Wood refuse to recede from this position or make additional concessions and a law suit seems Inevitable. Pros. Atty White has been at- torney for the administrator up to this but in the event of litiga- tion the administrator will probably be represented by Attorney Georgo A. while Attorney Burns will probably represent Mr. Wood. The heirs to Dolliver estate are the two infant children who are now with a sister of the late Mrs. Dolll- ver In Texas. There has been friction between the administrator and Mr. Wood ever since Dotliver's death. 8CHEWLH STEAMER MAY GRA- The steamer Mav Graham will h'ad vancea returning leave a grievance against Neeloy. laid and awaulted him under the at 4 30 cover of darkness. except Ktags EASTMAN SPRINGS BATHS Massage both local and general electric light electric water hot blanket rub and other hvdriatlc treatment.
