RUSSEIiL COAL TRACT IS AGAIN
A. R. Russell Sued for Mining 100,
000 Tons of Coal After Thomas
Davis and Others Came Into Legal
Possession of the Property Suit
Against tho D., D. & W. Mutual
Aid Association Verdict Against
Dr. Iiuxombergor Ex-Patrolman
Flaherty Sues tho City.
For fifteen years past there has
scatcely been a time when the courts
have not had to do with the four1 hun
dred acres of coal land In Ulnltoly bor
ough known as tho Russell tract.
Prior to 1SS7, A. It. Russell owned the
land and made no attempt to operate
It. He was nnxlotts to have tho conl
taken out and leased It. without con
dition as to minimum, to Joseph Dav
enport. Tho latter worked It for six or
seven years from a small opening. Dr.
II. C. Comegys and Thomas Davis, in
1S90, commenced negotiations with
Davenport for a sub-lease. They se
cured (.cvcrnl successive options for
leases, but did nothing under any of
the options until January 11!, 1801', when
they recorded an option of July 1, 1891.
Two days later they secured another
option and dated It back to July 1, 1S91.
The one option called for a minimum of
10,000 tons. The other called for a mini
mum of dOO tons. Davenport signed tho
AVlien Comegys and Davis, together
with V. R. "Wllliami and S. M. Jlajer,
who were taken In as half-owners, pro
ceeded to outer upon tho land, Daven
port uttcmptetl to stay them by in
junction proceedings, alleging that tho
option lie signed was not tho one lie
supposed It was. Ho was, however, de
feated in this.
Then llussell went Into com I with a
suit in ejectment to oust Comegys' ct
al alleging that Davenport had no
right to give a lease. He claimed that
Davenport, by reason or his failure to
pay royalties, had forfeited his lease,
and that at the time he gave tho sub
lease he had no Interest in the prop
erty. Russell was defeated, but the
Supreme court reversed the finding and
ordered a new trial. Again a 'verdict
was returned against Russell, and this
time the Supremo court sustained it.
This established the right of Comegys
and his partners to the lease on the
coal, Wut It did not succeed in taking
the property out of tho courts. Three
of tho four lessees sold their interests
to the Lackawanna Coal company. The
fourth, Thomas Davis, came in with
his claim for a fourth of tho royalties
and secured an order for an account
ing. Yesterday, in Judge Wliealon's court,
the property again bobbed up in the
case of Thomas Davis ct al. against A.
R. Russell, a suit to recover treble
damages for 100,000 tons of coal, which,
it is alleged, Russell mined from the
tract, while the property was in dis
pute. Joseph O'Urien, M. J. Martin, John
R. Edwards, Thomas P. Duffy and Cor
nelius Comegys appear for the plain
tiff. II. 31. Hannah and S. R. Price
represent tho defendant.
Tho introduction of papers showing
the title of the plaintiffs, as acquired
by these many years of litigation, was
not concluded at adjourning time.
MRS. RYAX, PLAINTIFF.
President Judge Kdwaids, sitting In
No. L Is engaged In hearing the case
of Sirs. Jlary Ann Ryan against the
Delaware, Lackawanna and "Western
Mutual Aid association. The plaintiff
Is tho mother of Kdwaid Ryan, one of
the trainmen killed In the wreck at
Henryvllle, July !, 1900. lie was a
member of the .Mutual Aid association,
and, if a beneficial member, his bono
liciary would be entitled to $1,000 in
death benellts. The association l of used
to pay the claim, on the ground that
he wtis non-benellclal.
One of the laws of the association is
that If a member tails to pay a death
assessment within forty-five days of
the time It Is levied, he becomes non
benellclal. Tho books of the associa
tion showed that Itydn was in arrears
on a death assessment at the time of
his death, and consequently not en
titled to benellts.
Tho plaintiffs side alleges that Ryan
made a tender of the assessment with
in the forty-five days to Secretary
Hang, but that he declined to accept It,
saying he was too busy just then. P.
W, Henley, a trainman, who was a
friend of Ryan, testified that Secre
tary Hang told him this was so. Sec
retary Haag took the stand and swore
that he never told Healey anything of
tho kind, and that the alleged tender
never took place,
The case was on at adjourning time.

Novel Question Raised.
Judge A. A. Vosburg yesterday heard
argument In chambers, In the estate of
Margaret Coblelgh, deceased, In which
a novel question was raised.
The testatrix died, leaving a valuable
property In the borough of Taylor,
which she divided to her seven chil
dren, by different mari'luges, but In
case they could not agree to hold It In
common, then the executor, Edward
Farr, was authorized to sell It.
Hy agreement upon the part of the
dlvisces, the executor exposed this
property to public sale, and It was bid
off by four of the heirs, John II. Powell,
Kate. Powell-Evans, Thomas J. Powell
and David Powell, for $G,S00. A nolo
was given by them to the executor on
the clay of the sale, and afterwards
the purchase money was tendered; but
he refused to give them a deed, alleg
ing that there had been an agreement
prior to the sale, between the purchas
ers and the other three heirs, Elizabeth
Davis, E. J. Thomas and Mary J. Oiif
llths, that tho property should not be
sold for less than $8,000, and that the
three who did not join in the purchase
had been defrauded. Tho purchasers
contend that they were not parties to
any such agreement, and" that they
have acted ill good faith in the entire
A citation was taken upon the execu
tor to compel lilm to give a deed to the
purchasers, and u large amount of tes
timony was taken on both sides. The
arguments were made by Joseph O'Uri
en and James E. Watklns, for the pur
chasers, and by II. M. Hannah, for
the executor. Judge Vosburg reserved

Tho Money Drawer Under tho Tull
Glare of nn Electric Light nnd in
View of Fasnorsby Broken Into
and Considerable Sum Taken lor
ry Sullivan, Who Has Boon Ar
rested, and His Young Son Aro
Supposed to Bo the Guilty Pnrtios.
The store at 120 North Washington
avenue, occupied by Cummlugs Broth
ers, of Duffalo, as nn miction room,
wus burglarized last night between tl
and 7 o'clock In an extremely bold
manner. Jerry Sullivan, of Irving ave
nue, a former employe, was arrested
Into last night, with some of tho stolen
goods lu his possession.
Tho place did a thriving business
during tho day and at G o'clock, when
the crowd had thinned out considerably
the proprietors decided to close up for
an hour and go out for supper. When
they returned shortly after 7 o'clock
they found- the front door locked as
usual, but when they went to open their
desk, which stands on a platform In
the middle of tho store room, they dis
covered that It had been broken open
All the money which it contained had
been taken. Stories differ as to the
amount taken. To the police the pro
prietors said that the only money left
In the drawer was the siliull change
and silver taken In during the day,
about $."i0 In all. To a Tribune man
they stated that the entire receipts of
the day, amounting to between ?G0O and
$700 had been stolen.
FNDER ARC LIGHT.
The rifled desk was directly under
neath an arc light which had been
lit since late In the afternoon. Its
conspicuous position on tho raised
platform tendered It perfectly visible
from the stieet, so that the burglar or
burglars must have been particularly
The back door of tho store is fast
ened from the Inside by means of a
hasp and padlock. An examination
showed that Ilia staple had been pried
out from Inside. The door was partly
open and an expensive roll of carpet
was found In the alley behind.
The pioprletors of the place say that
it is very possible that the burglars
got away with a considerable quantity
of goods. The largo stock of goods on
hand Is piled In reckless profusion In
the back of the store and they suy It
would' be almost Impossible for them
to tell positively whether anything
had been taken.
The prying oppn of the door from
the Inside of course suggested the the
ory that someone had hidden in the
store after tho afternoon rush and had
then either done the job by himself or
let some one in to help him. The pro
prietors remembered thut shortly be
fore closing time the small son of Jerry
Sullivan who they had discharged two
weeks back, had been in tho store and
had asked for and secured some tools
which his father had left behind. As
the father was discharged on suspicion
of being dishonest they immediately
suspected that he had a hand In tho
