1'ituM i ill: sijkin fjjtriTA.1.. The Woollev Csie I'aaies Ua by the Appellste Court A Slather's tourrow a ad a Baii'iBhame The Exemption ArL rSiiecial to the Courier - Journal. 1 Frankfort, Dee. i). The Court of Appeals to - day decided the case of R. V. Woolley vs. William Freston and A. J. Eff ing on an appeal from the Louisville Chan cery Court. This U a friendly suit ia refer ence to an agreement among thedevLtees under tbe will of Mrs.,S. H. Woollev, who died in Fayette county, in 1S73, possessed of the Howard s Grove estate in bat county containing 1,100 acrea, her family residence in Lexington, an out - lot of twenty - eibt acres within the limits of that city, the Blue Lake plantation in Arkansas, and a very large aud raiuabl landed estate in Bath and Morgan counties in Kentucky. Tbe appellant Woolley asked that a deed be made to him for his share of the property. despite his failure to enter into tbe agree ment on the part of the rest of tbe devisees to contribute the amount of ? 50, 000 to pay off the indebtedness against the estate, but the Appellate Court, as recited in Chief Justice ilines' opinion, says: "The prayer of the appellant should have been granted, and tbe judgment is reversed aud cause remanded, with directions to cause the trustees to execute such a conveyance." There was a forcible example to - day of the unfortunate and unavoidable bardsbifts of tne peu&t jaw 111 i is uperaiinns on tne innocent to execute the puishment of the guilty. Sheriff Taylor, o Greene county, brought to the city a young man of Sli years, named Liles, under sentence to the penitentiary for robbery. The widowed mother of Liles and one child and Mr. D. T. Toles, an attorney, accompanied tne party lor tbe purpose of a personal interview with tiov, Knott in tbe hope of obtaining a pardon. The Sheriff, awaiting the issue of the interview, did not take his prisoner to the peuilentiarv. but. for teinnorarv safe keeping, placed him in the custody of Jailer heebau. Tho mother clung passionately to her boy, saying that he was ali the support 6lie bad, and that his incar ceration in the penitentiary meant extreme privation and wretchedness to her and her child. She cried piteously at the sight of tne convicts she saw about tbe streets, aud begged the Governor to spare her this terrible affliction and the suffering she must undergo beii - re tne expiration of ms sen tenee. The case, it seems, did not justify Kxecsnive interference, and the stern and inexorable - mandate of theconrtwiil be en forced thu afternoon by the closing of the ponderous iron gates of the penitentiary. shutting in the wayward boy aud shutting out the agonizing crio oi bi heart - broken mother. The very important case' of Sheriff Bar - txur vs. LouUviile Board of Trad was arzued baturday by Georce M. Davie. Exi.. for appellee, and James P. Helm, Esq.. tor appeiiant to - ciay, ana ruomuiea. 1 ho case not only involves the question of exemption trout iftate taxes of the Board of Trade building in Louisville, but also the right of the Legislature to exempt churches, schools ami cnarltaMe organizations, and lodges of all kinds throughout tne btate. Tbe Clerk of tbe Court of Appeals says parties litigants must take notice tnat De cember 10 is the last day for filiug records to the next term ox the Court of Appeals and . . , v . . . - ,
