A compromise has been agreed upon in circuit court in the five cases in which Joseph Schoentrup and others were trying to collect inusrance on policies that had been issued on the Schoentrup-Worden track factory, which was destroyed by fire a few days after the insurance was sold to the manufacturing company, and the term of the compromise will be set forth in decrees that will be filed in court at the earliest possible moment. It has been the intention of Judge Blair to hear the arguments of the attorneys in the case Friday afternoon, but the reaching of the agreement made the arguments unnecessary.
Shelbyville, Ind., November 28, 1914
