A special term of the Chancery Court was held in Waverly to try the case of W. B. Ridings, receiver, vs. jthe Bowen Chapel congregation of the C. P. Church et al. This is a somewhat noted . case, involv ing the church lands and a lot of rents therefrom of the Bowen Chapel Church in the Third Civil District of Humph reys County.

Ridings, was appointed receiver to take charge of these lands and rent them out and hold the rents, which he did. When that case was decided in the Supreme Court of the State, it was held that the Chancellor bad no juris diction in any matter save the property at Fayetteville, hence that case went off without any directions as to the dispo sition of the rents and property in this case, and while holding in favor of the C. P. faction in that particular case, made no orders or disposition or hold ing as to Bowen 's Chapel property. In this situation, the C. P. faction of the church was claiming the lands and rents, the Presbyterian Church; U. S. A., claimed it and Cumberland Univer sity set up a contention claim to it on the grounds of a statutory inhibition against any unincorporated church holding directly more than five acres of land, etc. In the midst of all these contentions Complainant Hidings filed this bill, making all the claimants .par ties, paying the funds into the court and asking that all claimants interplead and litigate among themselves the various claims set up by each ; the bill was by the court sustained as a bill of inter pleader and issues made up, proof taken and heard by the Chancellor last week he taking the case under advisement, and will render a decision in it later on. Local counsel in the case were: J. F. Shannon for Complainant Ridings; H. Carter for Bowen 's Chapel C. P. Church, with Judge Caldwell assisting; E. Tubb for the Presbyterian Church U. S.
