2. On or about January 20th, 1891, the claimant duly appeared and filed his answer to said libel, praying that the libel be dismissed with costs, as by reference to said answer will more fully appear.

3. In March, 1891, said cause came on for hearing before the Honorable Addison Brown, Judge of said District Court, and such proceedings were had that on April 3rd, 1891, a final decree was made and entered in said suit, whereby it was adjudged that the libel be dismissed and that the claimants recover the sum of $68.28 as costs.
