Syllabus

In a suit in equity for the foreclosure of a railroad mortgage, this Court holds, on appeal by the purchaser at the foreclosure sale from a decree declaring the claim of an intervenor to be a lien upon the property, that the record is too meagre for it to determine whether there was any error in the decree.
