ERROR to the Circuit Court of the United States for the Western District of Texas.

This was an action of trespass to try the title to certain lands in Texas, brought by Thomas J. Hollingsworth against John T. Flint and D. T. Chamberlain. Flint filed a disclaimer of title.

The remaining facts are stated in the opinion of the court.
