HALLOCK, Minn., Oct. 11.-Judge Grindeland today set aside the decision of the jury in the case of the Smith-Baker Commission company vs. H. B. Borneman, on the ground that the verdict is not sustained by the evidence, and other grounds and will grant a new trial. The case involved about $5,000, and was tried in the same court before a jury of farmers. Action was brought under the so-called Grindeland grain law, which requires the licensing of commission merchants, and the making of reports by them to the shippers of all sales made. The judge, who was the author of the bill held that the law does not apply in this case.
