Candidate Files Suit For $50,000 Damage
Minot, N.D., Nov 10—John C Lowe, Minot attorney, elected district judge in the fifth judicial district last Tuesday, has started a $50,000 damage action in the Ward district court against Dr. Archie D. McCannel of Minot. The complaint alleges that the defendant recently made statements in the presence of Arthur Harshman and others which were derogatory to Mr. Lowe. The complaint charges that the remarks were made when Dr. McCannel was discussing the criminal action which was made against Lowe just a few days prior to election. Lowe was arrested and bound over to the district court on a statutory charge preferred against him by Joy Eddy Newmack, a young girl who up until recently lived on a farm in Mountrail county near the farm on which Lowe spends the summer months.
