Fob. 24. 1 CUP>—The Arkansas Supreme Court 1 yesterday held that because baux- } iie was generally unknown in 1892 it, could not be included in a "coal and minerals" clavisc included in H deed at that time. In a four to three opinion the court quieted liile to the bauxite on 40 acres of Saline County land In 81-year-old J. n. Carson, reversing n lower conn decision. The Saline Court had upheld a contention of the Missouri Pacific Railroad that n held title lo the ore under K reservation in the deed, drawn up 56 years ago. I The liiRh court said such a construction would Rive the railroad the right to go in and mine the bauxite—which is a surface procedure— utterly destroying the value of the land. In other action the court: 1.
