SUITS FILED AGAINST MILTON YOUNG. Lexington. Ky.. November 11. Colonel Milton Young concluded the sale of his possessions with an auction of household goods and farm equipment for good prices today, but it seems that a more or less obscure lawyer by the name of C. M. McDonald wants to give the colonel something other than the Argentine Republic to think about. Mrs. Melvlua Farra had a notion that there was still something coming to her out of seventy-four acres of land that had been sold several years ago by a member of her family. This was a part of the tract sold yesterday by Colonel Young. She Instituted a suit in Jessamine County before the sale. A local paper In commenting on the filing of this suit said on Sunday morning that the sale would probably be stopped. At the sale yesterday some one asked Colonel Young about the suit and he replied that it looked to him Uke somebody was trying to work a hold-UD game on him. Lawyer McDonald heard of this and imrnediately iiled a suit for 5,000. alleging slander. This morning a similar suit for the same amount was filed by Mrs. Farra with John R. Charles-worth, partner of McDonald, as the attorney. "Mrs. Farra may think she has an interest in the land 1 sold, but she has not." said Colonel Young today, "and as for McDonald, I do not know him and never heard of him until be filed suit against me."
