      SUING FOR DAMAGES
      William E. Lemon Seeks to Recover $2,500 From the City.
      The case of William E. Lemon against the city was placed on trial before a jury in the superior court yesterday and will be continued today. Mr. Lemon claims that he was in a wagon driven by Anthony Gelock on South Ottawa street, near East Fulton street and that on account of a defect in the construction of the street he was hurried to the ground with such force as to seriously injure himself. His doctor’s bill amounted to $50, and he was for a long time ill. It is stated in the plaintiff’s papers that a large stone was left negligently and carelessly in the center of the street, and that on account of it the wagon was overturned and he was thrown out. The accident occurred May 14. The stone complained of is as big as a half-bushel measure, and was placed on exhibition before the jury. Mr. Lemon places his damages at $2,500, and his case is looked after by Attorneys Lombard and McAlister, and City Attorney Salasbury and E. A. Maher are defending the city.
