Three Cornered Tight
A the--real conflict , of the three
group, the fight over the two will, and
the hearing of all' cotitentioin,' may aot
be held- until a-periodof pnblrtatioa
elapiie under the law, the court haw
been reluctant te let down the bar an 1
admit evidence that might keep the1
case' going for days, and has sought to
limit -the eeope'of. the present Ivearina)
te the single matter of th appointment
of a temporary administrator, without
going -into the question of the validity
or . iiocumenra that have been intro
duced. Thia will be done when the trial
open December 21 next. ;
Aeceptihg the documents in the ca4
as they stand,' for the present, the at
titude of the court has been ' that the
will bearing the later dnte and it
notiomnanyins petition skin;' thtt Col'
bofn" be named temporary admiiiixtra'
' tor,' hdrve' the best thnding.
Cblbtirn Scores Point ;
Opiioeing thia, the contention was
raised' by theTattftflH'y'' of the other
two group-that Colburn should not be
named - because he' was an jnterestcc
party in the Contest that had arisen.
This contention ws' not' acepfed'' ah)l
Colburn retained his standing, marking
the first poinf that the,' attorneys of
the 1917 will scored. The naming of r
disinterested person to act a temporary
administrator was .suggested , several
times,'. ,, - i. .. -. .
The legal guns "of ' the two proups
were then turned en the-1917 will it
self and the signature that appeers oi
the margin of each of it pages . Wiih
brought into question, ' The court hehl
then that if Colburn' appointment
were ta be aueMasf ully opposed in thl ;
manner, it would, bj noressary to sho
that tha will bore' some palpable flaw
and that a, '.'cursory, examination. "
would give rise' tA the, belief that i
was fraudulent. Over' objections that
were offered the attorneys of the
JD09 win were 'then' permitted .to io
trodure' n'litnired 'amoeet of evidence
by which they soupht trt show thaf the
signature - to ' the 1917 will' was a
