WRIT of error and petition for certiorari to review a judgment of the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia, entered after the reversal of the same case by this Court in United Fuel Gas Co. v. Hallanan, 257 U.S. 277.

Mr. Malcolm Jackson and Mr. R.G. Altizer for respondent and defendant in error.


This is a case like that of Hallanan v.

Hallanan, decided December 12, 1921, 257 U.S. 277. It is in all respects similar to that in Eureka Pipe Line Co. Case and requires the same judgment.

The petition for the writ of certiorari is denied and the writ of error is dismissed.
