Samuel COLCORD, of Greenville, has instituted suit against August IMER and Leander YARBROUGH, saloon keepers of that place, for $5,000 damages under the liquor law. The suit grows out of the fact that the saloon keepers sold Harry H STAUB, Mr. COLCORD'S son in law, liquor, by which the aforesaid STAUB became intoxicated and in which state he assaulted Mr. COLCORD, beat him, and bit him, and came near causing him to lose his life. If Mr. COLCORD recovers the $5,000 damages, drunken sons-in-law will be at a premium in Illinois.
