vs. // BRIEF for APPELLEE On MOTION to DISMISS APPEAL. :
'John W. daudill, Appellee.
---—--ooo---—--
Case Stated:
0n the 25th. day of May, during the May term
1898 of the JOhnSOn Circuit Court, the appellee reCOVered
a judgment against the appellant, The Sandy River Jannel
Coal Company for $3291.00 with filterest and costs;
(8)

 to the judgment the appellant excepted and prayed an
appeal to the COurt of Appeals, which was granted, and
filed grounds for a new trial, which were over-ruled,
and judgment rendered and it excepted and prayed an
appeal to the Coart of Appeals, which was granted.
on the 20 day of June, 1898, the n0w
appellant exeCuted supersedeas bond and Caused supresedeas
to issue, thereby suspending the collection of the
judgment; 'On the 9th day of December, 1898, the
appellant filed affidavit and motion in the GOurt of
Appeals movingihe Court to extend the time thirty days
in which to file transcript and the motion was sustained,
and an order made extending the time thirty (30) days
from December 9th., 1898, in whiCh to fibe tranSCript.
No further step has been taken in the case and the
judgment still stands superseded.
The judgmentmas rendered May 25, 1898;

the September term 1898 of the Court of Appeals began
September 19, l898 and the next term of the Jourt of
Appeals began January 2, 1899. The appellant had
until the 12th day of December, 1898, in which to file
transcript, being twenty days before t,;e beginning of the
second term of the GOurt of Appeals after the judgment
in the Circuit Court mas rendered. tn the 9th. day
Of December, 1898, on mOtiOn of the appellant, The

‘ Sandy River Gannel Coal Gomppny, this Court extended
the time in which to file transcript thirty days time
being asked appellant, which was given.

_ <9)

 The thirty days expired on the ninth day of
January, 1899, and the transcript was not filed
within said thirty days allowed by the Court and

’ the same has not been filed yet, April 5, 1899.

Section 738 of Code provides that the
transcript shall be filed twenty days before the first
day of the beginning of the second term Of the Appellate
COurt after the rendition of the judgment; and Section
740 of the Code provides that if appellant fails to
file ranscript, within the time allowed by section 768,5
his appeal shall be dismissed. SeCtiOn 738 prOVides
that for cause shOwn the Court may extend the time to
file transcript, which was done in this case on the 9th
day of December 1898, extending the time thirty days.
The appellant did not file the transCript mithin the
thirty days, nor has the time been larged enlarged, or
extended in which to file transCript.

We submit that the appellant has forfeited his
right to further prOseCute the appeal granted in the
Circuit Court and that the appeal should be dismissed
with damages. It was the duty of appellant to have
filed the transcript within the thirty days extension
of time the Court gave him and having failed to do so,
Or offering any reasOn for delay, he cannot at this
late day be heard. It is not an open question;
it has been decided by this Court in a number of cases
that the appeal granted by the CirCuit COurt, where tm
same is superseded, must be dismiSSed if the transcript

(10)

 is not filed twenty days before the beginning of the
‘ second term Of the appellate COurt after the renditiOn
of the judgment, and on this point we call the JOurt's
attentiOn to Bailey etc., against Louisville and
Nashville R. R. 19 R. 1617; City of Bowling Green against
Elrod, 14 Bush 216; Welch Jr., against National dash
Register Company, 19 Rep. 1857; Wright, Hardin and
Hay vs. Wolfolk 14 Bush 308.
Had the Court not extended the time in which
to file transCript, it would have had to be filed tvv/‘enty
days before the beginning of the January term, 1899,
or its appeal would have been dismissed on motion.
The only additional rights the appellant acquired by ‘
the extension of time was thirty days lOnger tme in
whiCh to file the transcript, and at the end of thifity
days all rights under the appeal granted by the JirCuit
Court came to an end and appellant was, and is,
subject to the motiOn of the appellee and should he make :
the motion to dismiss the appeal, it must prevail, 5
with damages and the appellant will be relegated to 3
his appeal sued out in Appellate Gourt if he desires - f
' to prosecute one. %
We have nOw made this statement lOnger than .
we should and upon the law and the facts as they appear .
in this record we ask that Our motion to dismiss with
damages be sustained. :
