Under date of December ;17, 1909, we published an account of :the order .of the probate court in granting the partnership creditors of D. D. Perkins & Co., priority of payment of their claims against the partnership estate J of Perkins & Co., over and in prefer- 'ence to the $7,000 claim of W. S. ! Thomson, administrator of the 'in dividual estate of David D. Perkins. This matter was first presented, to Judge Porter of the probate court'on the petition of the partnership credi tors, in which they claimed that they were first entitled to payment in full of their claims before W. S.Thomson, as administrator, could collect his claim for $7,000, which had been prop erly allowed during the first year 6f administration and placed in class five of. demands. Thomson through his attorneys, R. B. Bridgeman and John Kennish; contended at that time that as Thomson's claim .had been allowed the same as all otjr claims, and placed in Hie "same clus of. demands jay the probate criurt, 'arid that'sald judgment r was unappealetl from that time, it became final 'rid bindingon all parties concerned. JiiUe Porter held that even though a judg ment had been rendered and plcgd in the same. class qf .demancls, tjlit the'- partnership, creditors yere .first entitled to payment in full of th'bir claims, and lie ordered the admliflfs tralors of the partnership estatc;"to make payment accordingly: from'ufts order Thomson, as administrator pf the individual estate, appealed tojtbe circuit court. , Judge EUteon heard -the.-arguments of counsel on both side&of th'is pr.or sition early in the tei'm, and tooksUe matter under advisement -until jl4st Saturday, at which time lie' revQrsgd the order of the probate court, there by sustaining the contention made1 by Bridgeman & Kennish on behalf -pf Thomson, as administrator of ther dividual estate: that is, that as fthe claim was. allowed during- the jfrjst year of administration and, placed? In the same class of demandsas were the claims of the partnership Vereditiprs, which said judgment was''unappeaied from at that time, it became fina&iid binding on all parties concerned. ; Thiscase has attracted a greatcdeai of attentwnboth in the courts ajtid especially around the vicinity? -of Craig, as it is more of alight beteei x,ne creators o uiiwtj estates, viia it'is between the hejrsjandjie credi tors, 'as 'it is Joweded that boh estates are insolvent. ' ' It is conceded b most of the SjWNjr' ge. .Ellison tooiv tne oniy pos sible view that he could have taTcen under the former, holdings of- the higlier courts. After Judge Ellison made'his ruling, as stated, above Hi. T. -Alkire, who represents the part nership Creditors, took the mecessary steps to appeal this case to the Kan sas City court, of appeals. In case this appeal is completed the decisions will be watched with a great deal of in terest, as it involves almost every proposition known to the administra tion law. Ninety-one Mile-Stones. Uncle Martin Kieffer reached his 91st birthday on Wednesday of this week, having been born in Rockingham county, Virginia, January 19, 1819. Seventy-one of these years he has spent in Missouri, and 52 of these 71 he has passed in Holt county. His life in its every phase has been worth its living, for as his sun is slowly set ting, lie is greatly beloved by all. The occasion brought to the home farm of his son Frank, 5i miles north of Ore gon, where he is passing his declining days, a large number of his kindred and neighbors, who enjoyed his as sociation again, and his interesting tales of trials and struggles of his early days in the county. In those days there was no electric lights, automobiles, threshing machines or cultivators. An elegant dinner was served, and the day was so delight fully passed, that it will ever be a sweet memorv to those who were for tunate enough to be there. . v For the Shoes that Outwear all Others Bentley & Olmsted Co, Buffalo Calf Shoes P.
