Compelling the Executor to Exe

Belonging to tho Estate He Be
frnincd on the around That the
Prlco Bid Was Writ as High ns the
Minimum Amount Tlxed.
The following; opinion whs handed
down yesterday by Judge A. A. Vos
burg In the Orphans' court:
i re. eat.itc of Margaret Cobh'lgli, decoa'td.
fn the orphan' rcurt of Luckavvimna county.
Dili ease iterant many novil feature. The
Jljposlllrti ot It li:ii been dclajcd somewhat,
by tho ncccvHy ot cjrclully examining a largo
linount ot tcitlmany which his been taken by
both of tho contending pottle'!, anil a to cer
tain points, this evidence Is quite conflicting.

w follows: "All the rest and residue of my
Mtate, rent, pergonal, and tnltcd, 1 kIvo, do; No

by all, otherwise the fame s-Iiall bo sold at pub
lic silo by my executor and tho proceeds to be
I hided as aboc directed."
A certain piece of real estate in the borough
M Taylor wai included within the temii ot thli
general devise; and a the deUee) failed to
grcc, the execute. advertised this property to
be sold at public pale. So far there l no s-rlcnn
tlifflculty In finding the facts, but there appears
to be a mlsundeotundlng ns to what agreement
wai made between the pirtici In interest and
the executor, about the sale of this real estate,
Ihortly before It was told. It is contended upon
the one side that all of the devices midc an
igrccment that the piopcrtv fhould be bid up
to at least right thousand ilollir.-, and tint
there should be no nle unless tint figure was
readied, Mr. Ksrr, the executor, tcslllles as fol
lows: "Q. After jou got down theie, was there any
oiivcrsation about this matter of the price, end
where did it take place?
"A. It took plate in the drug 6tom. Mr. I'd
w.mb and me both unit in, and wo told Uivis
und his wife that there would be no sale unless
It tamo to thoe flgutc?.
"(. Itcpc.it the fignp's over.
"A. ?S,fi00 to WOO."
lie Is corroborated by other witnees. On tho
othi-r band there is evidence tending to show
that tho agreement was, that if the properly went
aliovc 55,000, it waj to be let go, but if it iold
fir a figure no higher thin this sum, the de
visees were to bid it in. Mr. VatMii3 testifies.
"Then they said wo will bid as high as $S,000;
if It goes any higher we will lit It go, if it
rocs no higher we will bid it in. Tint was the
final arrangement as I understood it theic."
TIIU O.NLV I'AHTIES.
The same minces also testifies that the four
ItAlscra who aftemards bid off tho pionc.ty,
iz: Thomas J. Pnwill, David J, Powell, fcam
ucl Towcll, and Kate Powell l'vans, were tho
tnly ones who vvcie parties to the agreement
that the propirty fhould be bid up to $5,0u). He
njs: Q. When was it agreed that theie four
should make the purchase? A. Well, that I
ean't tell, ou: 1 didn't know there was mcli
an arrangemtnt until I arrived there, that four
wno to bid in the property; I asked Mrs. Divis,
'aren't jou in tins anangenientS' She said,
-'No.'" This tcidlmonj is also corroborated by
ellirr wili.c.-iif, but it is not nccr&sarr to quote
liom the cvidince further. The properly vis
then eposcd to sale by the counsel for the eve
tutor, i-cvcnl bids were made by outsider, .is
well as by the drusco.s'and it was finally struck
off to the four parties named abee, for the sum
of 8,S0O.0O. The ctrcutor testifies that lie lallid
out at once tint It was no fale, while other
wllmsscs bay that he 6imply stated that it went
for too email a. sum.
It is conculed that the cwutor made tome
objection to receiving the amount to be paid
down by the purchaser., niid that he finally
: killed to the adviie ot Ins counsel, and ac
cepted a note ficm them. The money wis af
terwards tendered to the executor by the pur
ihascrs, hut he refused to accept it, .uul Ko
deillncd to execute and diliur a deed to them
for the piopeiiy ihus sold. There can be no
doubt but that the exicutor, in thus icfuslrg to
ddivcr u deed, acted in pcrfeit good faith, and
from the most honest and const ientious inotnca.
The purchasers line btgun proteedmgs to lompcl
bliu to do so, and the only question now" aiialng
is whether or net, under the law, the faits oi,d
Irtuinstarcts just In Icily eiiuiueialcd will justify
The application (o the couit is in the form
of a petition to conipil tho csccutor to execute
a deed, and as siith a proceeding is very unusual,
we find mui'u difficulty in diocring .my pie
rodents to guide us in the determination of this
It needs no citation of authority for the prop,
edition that fraud vitiates auv transaction Into
width it enters; but the difficulty Hc in the
application of this lide in the present proceed
ing. Taking the claim of the rc-pondent, and
the devisees at whose iiisl'iuio lie has taken
Ms presmt position, and conceding for the mo
ment the concctness of the evidence presented
by them, wo have the following stat of facts.
An agreement between all the devisees who
own in common a piece of real state, that this
propel ty should be bid up to the sum of $.3,000
at the sale, and that there should be no sale of
ihls ilguro wai not reached, whiih agreement was
communicated to the cvculur, wlm then by his
.ittorniy, proceeded to tonduct tho sile. After
several bids, his coun-el deilned the property
sold to the highest bidder, at the sum of $0,100.
'J he executor Immediately give notice that it wn
"mi sale," but under the advice of louuscl .-.c-itpted
a note for the cash pijment icquired,
the money being atlcrwards tendered by thu pur
chaeri, MIGHT HAVi: ADJOUItXIIll.
The executor's counsel inbjlit perhaps liavo ad
journed the cale without incepting the bid of
S0.300, but through come apparint misunderstand
ing, or it may be in a mcmciit of uncertainty as
to the propel course to pursuo when tho biddiig
stopped, ho declared the property sold to the
present pet'tloiicrs. It la not mtessary to dc
cldo whether or not the cecutor for whom he
was acting couli have dlsavowid the sale
at tlut time, and refused to accept the down
pjymeut; but as he followed (he advice of his
i on iisi.1 and accepted a noto in lieu ot tho cash
payment requlied, lie thus plainly ratified the nit
of tho attorney, and made it his own. lie cannot,
therefore, legally oppose the execution of a dud
to the purchasers y reason ct (In law) his own
action in declaring a sale. Hut, it l-i said, the
other tlivlstes bavo been defrauded by this
trnimctlon, and they should be protected in thU
prccicdlng. This brings in to question of rem
edies, 'as well as of rights. Is this refusal to de
liver a deed to the purchasers, tho proper rcmidy,
even avsunilng that there has, been well fraud
upon the part of the purchasers as would de
prive them ot any ot the advantages of their
purchase, which I do not now decide.
As between the purchaici and the executor,
rcpricnting the estate, the purthascrs arc en
titled tu receive the deed, because they were the
blghet bidders at the salt, the properly was
struck down to them, he accepted their note for
the dawn pajment, and they bavo tendered the
full purilusa price. If (he other dcviseci wiro
allowed to assert any rights by Intervention in
thli proceeding, we would be trying a collateral

Wall Street Review.
New York, April 15. The dimensions of the
tiadlng in Southern Hallway stocks todav eclipsed
any ever before seen on tho New Vork Slock ex
change. The total number of shires of common
stoik outstanding Is l.'.W.OHO. Ihc dealings re
corded In the stuck today wire to the number of
Mt.OOO shares. On. April 21, lll. Union Pacific
was dealt in to the extent of 0M,800 shares, dur
lug the struggle between the Morgan and Harri
man Interests in the tiaiucontlnental field. That
figure was far in excess of any previous diy's
dealings in a. sHngle stoik until today. Tho tic
mendoua volume of llieso dealings dwatfed 'he
rest of the market and ct there were a number
of stocks In which the dealings were en a scale
only seen during periods of rgrcat speculative ac
tivity. Thu opening in Southern Hallway was
quiet enough mid the opening bulge in Iioulsvillc
and Nashville to nearly 4 points over last night
awakened some momentary scepticism ot the
overnight reports of a settlement of the dispute
for control of Louisville and Nashville. Hut the
pirtlcs in interest weie alicady in consultation
mien me sioik marxet opined ami tmre was a
scurrjing of brokcis from the neighborhood of the
consultation rooms. Immediately buving orders
appeared in Southern Hallway for seemingly un
limited amounts of the stock. The movement in
the stock did not become wild at any time, in
apllo of the extreme advance or OH points to
40Vi. The reactionary tendemy of Loub-vllle
Nashville was also a convincing demonstration
that the sttuggle for that stock had terminated,
and the scramble to get out by the smaller oper
ators who had followed the deal cirrlid it down
by successive stages to 125V4- The ht prke,
however, left it at 127, u net loss of only n
point. Southern Hallway suffered at the list
from prollt-taklng on the part of the professional
clement, which bought the stock lecklcssly but
were apparently not disposed to lemiin in it
ovu night, in face ot many possible contingen
cies still open in the situation. The reaction iai
ricd Southern Hallway back to 37$1 and it clos'jl
Uc. higher at a net train of 34. Ti,e preferred
gslned .",14. The extent of the public informal i.in
when the stock market closed was contained In
the formal statement by the Gates clcmmt that
they had bought mntrol of Louisville and Nah
vlllc and that they proposed to leivc the set
tlement of the dispute to .1. P. Morgan & Co.,
as aibiters. This was accepted as conclusive evi
dence nut aouiiicrn luuwny would uc iirnenteii
by the settlement. The heavy buving ot that
stock was by brokers usually emploicd by
the inside interests. Hut the volume of the deal
ings wa9 sufficient iudlcation that everybody
who could get orders csicuted n!iared in the buj
inc. Tho movement in Illinois Central and in
Chicago, Indimapolis and Louisville were diiect.
ly in sympathy with that in Southern Hailwav.
It is supposed that Illinois Central will lie al
lowed to share in the benefit of the Louisville ab
sorption and that Chicago, Indianapolis and
Louisville will possibly fnim a connecting link to
Chieago. The vctv large haying of fit. Paul wis
supposed to be due to a renewal of the cam
paign for a riio by the element which bought
Iouisvllle. Theie was some strength in tho
other Grangers and Pacifies and in Pennjlvania
and Daltimoro and Ohio. Amalgamated Copper
advanced at onrj time tuer a point but did not
bold it. Theie were notable advances m special
ties here and there. International Power rising
nearly 12 points. But theie were also points of
weakness and outside of the congested centois of
activity, there was not a notable dent md for
stocks. The maikct closed irregular under real
ising. Total sales today, 1,7511,700 share;.. The
bond market was irregular. Total sales, pir
value, tjU.OMi.OOO. United Mates bonds were all
unchanged on the last call.

Springfield, Ma's., 3-1002.
Andrew L. Bush, Ksq., 72 Worthington St., City.
Dear Sir: I have just been comparing mining
investments to savings bank invesuncuU and uo
doubt the following will iutirest jou:
In the past 24 j cars I have put $1,.100.00 in
mining Motto, $JI000 of whiili 1 am pleased to
say was placed through jour office. Now-, my
Income on my si oiks whit-lt represent 17 compa
nies in 0 difftrent states, is just $10.00 a month,
or $102.00 a year. At the present time only 0
out of the 17 companies are paying dividend and
jet my money is earning all told a little moie
than 12 per cent, on the investment. I could tell
my stocka today for 'W.OOOOO, which ia 100 per
cent, more than I paid for them.
You tan readily sec what a laigc peicentage
this $1,30000 investment will kivc nic whtn the
dividend navinir companies increase their divi
dends (which they are to do immediately) an!
the non-dividend pajlng companies go on to the
dividend saving basis, which will be within the
next eight months. Now- if I bail let that
SI. 500 00 remain in a savings bank at 31a per tent,
(the present rate), I would receive V2.50 a jear,
vs. the mining u.v cstments, $102.00. 1 would
have to have 1,500 00 in bank in order to bring
what the mining stoiks now- bring. Legitimate
mining, as t-airied on with the present 2utli cen
tury methods, is the most profitable ami the safest
investment a man ran make whether he be a
lapitallst or working man.
Wishing jou the best of success, and hoping
von can place my surplus in the future us profit
ably as in the piit, I remain.
Yours ury truly,
C. II. McKKOW.V.
I offer 25,000 shares of Treasury
stock at 15c a share for a few
davs only. Now is your chance to
invest in a working trold mine of
great promise. Early dividends
assured. The ground floor m.in is
making the money today. You can
not go wrong to buy liberally of
Red Boy Entension. Full partic
ulars on request.
