Gidney v. Chappel

No. 263

Submitted March 8, 1916

Decided April 24, 1916

241 U.S. 99


Sections 6509 and 6521, Mansfield's Digest of the General Laws of Arkansas, dealing with appeals from the Probate to the Circuit Court, were not put in force in Indian Territory by the Act of May 2, 1890, c. 182, § 31, 26 Stat. 81, as they were inapplicable to conditions then existing in Indian Territory.

Section 6525, upon being adopted and separated from conflicting provisions of the Civil Practice Act of Arkansas, assumed its normal place among the other laws with which it was adopted and was put in force by the Act of May 2, 1890.

Quaere whether § 6523 was adopted by the Act of 1890.

43 Okl. 267 affirmed.

The facts, which involve the application and construction of statutes of the United States relating to the probate of wills in Indian Territory, are stated in the opinion.
