A new and intereating question is presented in this paper arising on a question in one of the California Courts, as to the right ful ownership of $50 offered by a herds man for the killing of a grizzly bear. The trial of Hon. Phil. B. Thompson, who shot Walter H. Davis under such distressing and sensational circumstances on the morning of April 27th, at Harrods- burg, Kentucky, promises to be one of the most remarkable in the annals of cel ebrated causes. Hon. J. C. S. Blackburn, M. C, has been retained as leading coun sel for the defense, aud Senator Daniel Voorhees, of Indiana, will assist on that side,' Thompson being an old friend of his. The interest in the trial is so great that men are anxious to serve as jurors in order that they may hear the whole case, and from the preliminary steps so far taken it is evident 'that the attorneya for and against Thompson are determin ed to fight every inch of gronud.
