Decided April 8, 1907

205 U.S. 279


Petition for rehearing in Gila Reservoir Co. v. Gila Water Co., 202 U. S. 270, denied.

The failure to make a defense by a party who is in court is, generally speaking, equivalent to making a defense and having it overruled, and where the question of the jurisdiction of a court in a particular case over property in its actual possession was not presented in that court, the appellant cannot, in this Court, question the power of that court to order a sale of the property or the title conveyed to the purchaser.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
