Gottleib Kolb. hoi husband, against
The paitlcs to tho case weio ngroe
ablo to the paititlon, but Judge El
waids was somewhat In doubt as to
whether ot not tho putitlon could be
legal! made, and took tho matter up
AVheie a husband and wife hold an
undivided half inteiest each in a piop
01 ty, thej hold it in entirety, and as
was decided in the Whitiock case, from
Scotl township, they could not make
In the rnesent case, however, a
peculiar 1 iicumstaneu takes It out of
the contiol of this decision.
The lot In question Is on Remington
avenue and is 40x100 feet in dimensions.
Kolb puiihased the lot fiom the Paw
nee Goal company, rebiuarv 12, 1874.
December I, IS7-J. Kolb and wife, by
deed, eonvejed an undivided one-half
inteiest in tho lot to John Appert, and
on the same da, Appeit conveyed the
said undivided one-half inteiest to Mis.
Kolb individually. By this airange
inent an undivided one-half was left In
the husband and the same in the wife.
The husband's one-half inteiest was
sold at shoilffs sale, June 30, 1S92, to
H. M. Hannah, and on December 7,
JSH3, the Hannah inteiest was sold at
sheriff's sale to Bieiinainan.the defend
ant in the piesent case.
Judge Cdwaids tlnds that "tho estate
as vested 111 the husband and wife, De
cember 1 1874, was not an estate in
entliety, but was an estate held by
tenants in common, and thoiefoie sub
ject to paitltion."
The husband, Kolb nnd Appeit weie
tenants 111 common, and when the wife
succeeded to Appert's half, she became
a tenant in common with her husband.

lletles is to be shaiod In by the On
tario and Western and Delaware and
Hudson companies The allotment of
collleiles will bo governed in a gieat
nieasuie by the matter of convenience.
At piesent all of the eleven bieukeis
aie on the line of the Bile and Wyom
ing, which connects with the Krle, so
It is piesumed tne Btie will have the
lion's share. This matter, however, is
Incidental as compared to the main
purpose of the deal, the defeat of the
independent road to tidewatei.
Now Yoik dispatches which weie
evidently insphed lays the blame for
the defeat of the new road project
upon E. L. Fuller. The action of Mr.
Fuller in selling to the Ontario and
Western, the Mt. Pleasant collierj, Is
the excuse for making him a seape
goat. At a distance this mlgtit seem
to be a Just accusation, but to those
acquainted with the facts in the case,
It is the eiiest bosh The Mt. Pleas
ant Is so situated that it could not
be made a contributor to the tiallle of
the new road without building a long
round-about and consequently expen
sive tallroud to connect It with the
Brie and Wyoming.
If the whole truth could be made
public: It is likely that it would be
admitted that no one ever expected the
Mt. Pleasant to be a contributor to
the Independent road. The fact that
Mr. Fuller's other collleiles, such as
were In the territory to be tapped by
the new load, weie letained by Mr.
Fuller to become a pait of the trlbu
tailes to the new load, removes the
foundation fiom the charge thut "Mr.
Fullei Bucked Out."
Mr. Fuller left for New Yoik yestei-'
day befoie the allegation that he had
"backed out" appealed in the public
pi hits. In regai d to the lepoited Eiie
Pennsjlvania deal, Mr. Fuller said he
had no official Information. In manner
lather than woids he Indicated that he
did not doubt it. He was about to go
to New Yoik, he said, and hoped by
toniouovv to know all about the affair.
