Kalbfleisch, and enjoyed a delicious six o'clock dinner.14 Conrad Adams Ambrosius was selected as a grand juror for the May term. on March 11, 1908 of the Circuit Court, Edwardsville, Madison County, Illinois. He was selected as foreman by Judge Burroughs on May 25, 1908.15,16
Mr. and Mrs. K Wendler of St. Louis were the guests of Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Ambrosius and Mr. and Mrs. W. Kalbfleisch over Sunday, April 16, 1908.17
From an article in the Edwardsville Intelligencer on April 28, 1908: "C. A. Ambrosius, a well known resident of Collinsville, seems to have the pickle trust on the hip and for this reason the National Pickle and Canning Company complains of Mr. Ambrosius and the Dodson-Braun Manufacturing Company in the circuit court of Madison county to the effect that the former has violated his agreement with the Dodson-Braun people. Four years ago or to be specific, on February 8, 1904, Mr. Ambrosius became trustee for the stockholders of the Collinsville Pickle Company, a concern which was located on lot 30 in Reed's addition near the Vandalia tracks. Mr. Ambrosius was importuned to sell the plant to the Dodson-Braun Company and agreed on condition that the buyer would agree to operate the plant for a period of two years and use a given amount of pickles and tomatoes and to contract for the third year crop off of 250 acres of land."
     "The sale was consummated on this agreement and within a short time the plant was resold by the Dodson-Braun Company to the pickle trust. The National Pickle Company claim that Mr. Ambrosius has failed to live up to his agreement made with the first purchaser to give a good and sufficient warranty deed to the property and that so far he has failed to give any deed whatever. They have therefore brought suit to compel a specific performance. The Collinsville Pickle Company was organized by local people and most of the stock was owned by farmers in that vicinity who sought a ready market for their produce."18
An article in the Edwardsville Intelligencer on May 27, 1908 describing the members of the grand jury stated "The foreman of the jury is C. A. Ambrosius, the genial representative from Collinsville. Mr. Ambrosius is a well known retired merchant who until recently conducted a big mercantile establishment at Collinsville. Mr. Ambrosius was born in Germany in 1839 and came to Madison county when ten years of age. Politically he is a democrat and has been alderman of Collinsville and was representative of the 38th general assembly."19
Mr. and Mrs. Waldemar Kalbfleisch of Nashville spent Sunday at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Ambrosius.20
Conrad Adams Ambrosius sold pt lot in S. J. Berkey's addition to Collinvsille for $600.00 at Illinois, in November, 1908 to Edweard Rucker.21
The law suit filed in April, 1908 was settled in January, 1909. It was stated in the Edwardsville Intelligencer: "The pickle trust has be debarred from doing business in the county for the present and a suit filed in the circuit court by the National Pickle Company of Missouri against C. A. Ambrosius of Collinsville has been dismissed by Judge Charles T. Moore for want of equity. The suit was commenced early in the year in which the trust sought to compel Ambrosius to deliver a deed conveying the effects of the Collinsville Pickle Company. According to an agreement made between Ambrosius and the Dodson-Braun Pickle Company in 1904, the latter became the owner of the property and under certain conditions was to receive a deed to the premises. These conditions were that the purchasing company was to operate the plant for two years and was to purchase the tomatoes and cucumbers from not less that 25 acres of land and contract for the third year crop. Ambrosius in his answer to the suit contended that the company making the agreement had not complied with its terms and he had refused therefore to execute the deed when the time came. On March 1, last year, the Dodson people transferred their interest in the Collinsville plant to the National Pickle and Canning Company of Missouri, and the latter filed suit to secure the deed. In dismissing the suit for want of equity the decree states that neither of the corporations are residents of Illinois and that they have no officers here, nor have they been authorized to do business in Illinois.22
