JUDGE WALLACE ENJOINED
FROM MOVING HIS HOUSE.

His Neighbors Say It Would Destroy
Valuable Trees in Norledge Place.

Beset in front with the dragon quo warranto, Judge W. H. Wallace, advancing to give battle, has been assaulted from the rear. He has been enjoined from moving his own house. The temporary order was issued yesterday afternoon by Judge J. E. Goodrich in the circuit court and made returnable today.

William C. and Edward L. and Nathan Scarritt and Mrs. Annie E. Hendrix are the plaintiffs in the action, which is brought against William H. Wallace, Elizabeth C. Wallace and Grant Renne. The last named is a house mover, who has the contracting for transporting the Wallace dwelling from its old to its new site.

Boiled down to the briefest terms, the petition seeks to prevent the moving of the Wallace home westward from its present site along Walrond avenue or Norledge Place. It is stated that an agreement was made last October by the Wallaces by which they agreed not to remove their dwelling except in an easterly direction, so as to locate it east of Indiana avenue. The objective point for the house is now Norledge Place, to a lot adjoining on the west the home of W. C. Scarritt.

The real reason of the suit is an endeavor to prevent the destruction of the fine shade trees which line Norledge Place. One large oak is especially spoken of in the petition as having great value. Says the petition: "At least twenty trees would be destroyed, of great value, of more value, in fact, than the building."

At first R. A. Long's was mentioned in the papers as a plaintiff, because the Wallace home, according to the petition, is to be moved across Mr. Long's land. "Mr. Long's name was taken from the papers because he is not in the city and could not read over the petition," said W. C. Scarritt. "However, he is in sympathy with us and moving the house across his land would be done without his consent and against his will."

TO MOVE WALLACE'S HOUSE.

Family Will Travel Half a Mile in
Their Brick Home.

For the next thirty days Judge William H. Wallace and his family will be distinctly on the move. They still will occupy their two and one-half story dwelling, but the building is to be moved from 3200 Gladstone boulevard to the southeast corner of Norledge and Indiana avenues, a half block away. However, a number of turns must be made before the final point is reached and the distance traversed will be much more than half a block.

Grant Renne has taken the contract to move the house, furniture, folks and all for $1,000 with the understanding that not a brick is to be disturbed in the whole structure. It will be mounted on rollers, and the propelling power is to be a horse and capstan.
