In Fplle of the fact that after Judge
McComas delivered hi? opinion In the Tin

attorney for the Tingles, indicated that
he intended to note an appeal, and though
another caso Is now pending against the
Commissioners, they to-day filed the plat

surveyor of the Dlftrict.
William Forsythe annexed his signature
to the title page at 12:10o'clock this after
noon. The thirty-eight plates that com
pose the portfolio were taken to the rur

after the judge had rendered his decirlon

Surveyor's ortlce constitutes a riling, but

At first, though the plat was supposed
to be on record the officials of the

When The Times reporter tarried to Mr.
Meloy the first intimation he had of the
filing of the plat the attorney said-

that men who were not frcscocrs were em.
