Expensive Litigation. News was received this week that the supreme court had reversed the decision of the lower court in the cases of Annie Lyon and Duncan vs. the city of Grand Rapids. The verdict .in the case of Annie Lyon vs. Grapd Rapids was for damages, but was cut down by the trial judge to and costs and judgement for that amount was entered against the city. In the case of Lydia Duncan judgment was secured for and costs. Both cases were appealed to the supreme court by the city. In reversing the judgement of the lower court ill the Duncan case the supreme court held against the city on every question presented, but tound that the court evrec! iu its iustruciious to the jury on one question of the special verdict. In the case it was held that it was error, under the complaint as drawn, to introduce evidence as to the condition of the side- walk in question in the immediate vicinity and ou cither side of the hole into which the plaintiff stepped. The supreme court states that the verdicts in each of the above cases are not ex- cessive. The technicalities upon wjiich these judgments are reversed COUNCIL MEETS ARE WE TO HAVE A STRIKE?

This litig-atiou has already proved an expensive affair for the city and its victory before the supreme court on technicalities is really a barren one. If the cases are tried again the costs will amount to more than the original judgments, with the chances all in favor of the city having- to pay in the end. We arc decidedly in favor of compromising- all such suits against the city if it is possible to do so and we are as decidedly opposed to the city's squandering its resources on ex- pensive lawyers.__________ A HOME BREW SURE.
