16 GREAT WESTERN TELEGRAPH. Judge Drummond Remands tlie Case the Jurisdiction of the District Court. The Company to Petition Judge Blodgett to Set Aside the Bankruptcy Adjudication. All tlie Creditors to lie Settled with Except Status to Bo Determined bj the Courts. His Honor Judgo Drummond, sitting in tho United Statos Circuit Court, yesterday morning xof usod to allow tho motion to admit now tosti- Jinony in tho record of tho petition for review of tho decision of tho District Court, in HUton v.

tho Groat Western Telegraph Company. Having already, in tho numerous actions taken, givon tho facts over and over again, it is not necessary to repeat them. Leaving out, therefore, tho well-known facts of tho caso, as they havo been so frequently presented to tho readers of The Tribune, His Honor In effect said that woro two motions before tho Court to bo on. Tho question, howovor, substantially was, os to tho practice of tho Circuit Court in 'Applications for tho hearing of now evidence affecting the question of bankruptcy; it was brought up by tho motion of tho petitioner in this Court, for permission to odd his nowly-dls'covorod testimony; and, in tho second place, it up on the part of tho petitioner in tho Dis'trict Court, in las motion to striko out all testimony from tho proceedings in this Court that not boon brought before tbo District Court. Thoro wore two ways In which tho objects of tho petitioner in this Court might ho reached.

One was for tho potionor in review in this Court to proceedings hero until ho -had an opportunity to present to tho District Court tuo newly-discovered evidence. Tho Court hold 'that thoro was no doubt of tho power of tho District Court on proper showing to open an or- Kler in bankruptcy and to hoar new evidence therein; and pointed out that tho proper stop io bo taken was first to submit such evidence to District Court, and wbon ibat was done, if 'qpon the final order of that Bourt still to come to this Court for review, they knight then properly do so, bringing their new along with them. Again, although what tho Court had suggested to be tho preferable course, there was 'another mode of doing it, if that was not adopted on a proper showing in tho Circuit Court, where a petition for review has boon filed and proceedings in review havo taken place, tho petitioner might ask tho Circuit Court for an on the District Court requiring it to proceed to hoar tho nowly-discovorcd evidence. If it was true, as it was contended by the petitioner in review in this Court, that the Company 'that bad boon adjudicated bankrupt was really solvent, and able to pay its debts, 'thoro was another method of procedure by which tbo petitioners could gain object. It was to cuter into approved arrangements to pay or secure all their outfit andang indebtedness, with tho exception of tho 'notes on which proceedings In bankruptcy wmo brought, those favor of J.

0. liillon, which. It appeared, woro given to Reeve, in carrying on: contract which tho Supremo Court of this ifitalo, In a decree, in Torvrilligcr v. tbo Company, Imd declared to be fraudulent. These notes were contested, and, until their character bad been established, tho defendants in tho Bankruptcy Court might well ask the miporscduro -of proceedings that Court on their 'giving Hilton suitable security for tho amount of such contested claim.

Ilia 'Honor had already so ruled, iu a railroad case, at Indianapolis, whero it wns decided that tho company, being put into bankruptcy, aottlo all its outstanding debts, except those contested claims on which tho proceedings In bankruptcy woro brought, and that such proceedings must stand In suspense until tho litigation over tho contested claims had decided the in dispute. In this case, tbo petitioners iu review contested the claims on (he ground that they woro not legitimate bona fide claims against tho Company, and Jn bankruptcy might io stayed u.dil limt question bad boon decided, if il. way decided that the notes were good, and Iho bankruptcy decree was afilnucd in the Districl then it would ho time enough to come to tho Circuit Court, in review, with their complete If it was decided that tho notes were bad, it was competent for tho District Court to upon tho decree, and make another order. The Court directed an order to bo entered ilia 1 the motion of tho petitioner in the CiicuU Court to bo allowed to introduce now testimony bo overruled, and tho motion of tho petitioner In tho District Court to strike out certain portions of the petition in this Court be Kimlmnrd An interview with tho counsel for (ho pc'ilionors in tho Circuit Court elicited the that they havo determined to ml' courses pointed out by His Honor. A inn of all tho creditors will bo called The debts nominally are believed to $16,000.

but really to be less than and they will be at once arranged for without dilltculty. FARRAR VERSUS FAYNE. Decision In the Sixty-niiUli Struct Mortgage Redemption Sult-Syiiopof Appeal Judge has decided tho of rrr V. Payne, hill and cross-bill, Farrar filing a to redeem a mortgage on five acres of land corner of Sixty-ninth street and Cottage Grovn and Payne filing a cross-bill to continn )iis title thereto, tho particulars of which suite Jiavo already boon published in The Tkiiiune. Tho Court said, iu effect, that ho mast dismiss bill, for want of equity, for tho following reasons: First, in Illinois an attachment cannot be levied upon tbo mortgagor's equity of second, tho complainant lias no wquity, because eleven years elapsed after tho tsalo under tho attachment proceedings through which he claims titlo, boforo (lie Sheriffs deed issued, tboreforo tho fibor- Iffs deed is void; third, tho equity, if any, remaining by vlrtuo of tho certificate of 'sale, is also barred in analogy to tbo statute of -limitations, and cannot bo sot un as un existing equity; fourth, tho laches of the complainant in bringing suit are so great that a Court of Equity will not interpose to grant relief.

in the cross-bill, the Court held that (lie complainant heroin was entitled to relief, he claiming through a mortgage sale by memo conveyances; first, that the notice under which tho mortgage was foreclosed being susceptible of construction, tho Court would not indulge in presumptions against it aflor a lapse of fifteen years, and that no laches had boon shown sufficient to defeat the title through which I'anio, tbo complainant la tho cross-bill, clftinn.il. Tito Court therefore dismissed the original bill, and decreed title iu Payne on tho crons hill. An appeal was taken to tho Supremo Court. W. 0.

AN AFFAIR OF A Itopcd Into Accepting the Ollinr Ulan run. to Como to the Challenged Feels Iflappy, Perhaps tho last thing that would bo expected of a police-officer would bo an easy Improsslbllity to tho wlnaomo waya bf a young lady.

But, whoro two officers oro equally impronood, perhaps tho first thing which would be expected of thorn would bo that thoy eliould moot in somo aalqon ou Sunday, and do to tholr bolter feelings, after a few atlmulollng drinks, by a freo of tholr clubs. But to tho first observation thoro has occurred an exception. Tho narao of Officer James O'Oouuors has appeared in thoso oolumna ao that of a dangorona peraon for a rowdy to encounter. Tho aamo narao muat now bo used as that of a young man, who, by hla numberless charms of face, figure, speech, and manner, has won a flcldo girl, and caused bor to forgot another follow, who for twonty-eovon years, moro or loss, has boon her only devotoo. Tills individual, who la a respectable gentleman, of honest and very poor parentage, having road that daols wore honorable, and, which was quite a point with him, seldom fatal, resolved to havo tho matter settled by tbo hot coffoo and pistol method.

So ho wroto a challenge to tho'man with ono star. To bo buto ho spoiled challenge with ono and two a's, bat tho ofllcor being an accomplished gontloman understood tho moaning of tbo word, and, it la said, tromblod. A largo rod seal, upon which tho word blood was written Jn largo letters, mado tbo document look llko a deed for a valuable residence in tho state called Eternity, and suggested to tho officer's mind, that, perhaps, if; ho accepted tho challenge, ho might shortly be sent to toko possession or it. But, a man who loved him, and wautod a sensation for a newspaper, told him that death was hotter than dishonor any day, and that dishonor or doath would become intimately associated with Ids in any event. Ono of these horns of tho dllamna ho bad to chooso, and at onco wroto I accept.

Death or dishonor. Give me both or neither. Meet roo at tho West Bide Police Station at 0 o'clock, Saturday The sanguinary contract was sent back to bis rival, ana in groat agony of O'Connors arranged to dio. It was not necessary for him to make a will. At 9 o'clock last evening, at.
