The cause was tried before Hon. Philip Zoercher." one of the members of the State Tax Board. The case was started at ten o’clock in the forenoon and lasted until about three in the afternoon County Attorney John W. Wilson and attorney John Chappell represented the county commissioners in their petition for the issuance of the bonds while Attorney Cooper and Attorney Leo H. Fisher represented th^ reroonstratora. The petition was gone over and witnesses introduced by both aides of the controversy. The court room was crowded during the entire session, men coming from every section of the county to hear the ease. The matter was not decided by Mr. 2k>ercher nor will it be. He took the evidence in the cause and will take it before tbe State Tax Board which will decide the matter. Tbe board has ten days in which to review the case and will not likely make a decision before that time. Mr. Zoercher at tbe close of the trial paid Pike county a high compliment. He said that it had been represented from certain sources that if the hearing of the cause was held in Petersburg there was danger of trouble from the remon-strators. It had been represented to him that the remonatrators were preparing to attend the hearing in a body and maka trouble. He said be waa pleated to say that he had never been among people who bad been more de-eoroua, attentive and gentlemanly than tbe crowdi which attmided the heering.
