By reason of the disputed location of said line, the plaintiffs and Dennis Dwyer, who owns adjoining land to the south, agreed upon a line, and established fences thereon. Common Pleas Judge Mathers, of Sidney in deciding the case In April, 1915 found that said boundary line, as agreed upon, Is the true line, where said road should be opened and constructed. The court therefore decreed that in laying out and opening said road the defendants were to take one-half of said roadway on the north side of said line and one-haif on the south bide. Temporary testraining order was disolved by the court, and costs as sessed half to plaintiffs and half to defendants. The Court of Appeals confirms the decision of the Common Pleas court, but assesses all the costs to the plaintiffs. Last Monday the plaintiffs filed an appeal bond to take the case to the Supreme Court.
