SitIo;;.i DiiT�rcMica ol Opinion That Ai Inert Iterween Nelehbort*. Lawyers wliu have dropped iuto Judge Caihihan's ollieo, 25 Chambers street, within the last two weeks, says tho New have bid a game chicken problom sprung on them that brings up au ontiioly now point at law and incidentally threatens to sever the pleasant relations that have hitherto existed botween two residents of Parkville, L. I. The case at point involves the ownership of a valuable game chicken that waB hatchod in Parkville a month ago by a very ordinary sort of a chicken without any particular pedigree. It came about in this way. James Mo* Caughn, who has made a fortune as a truckman in New York, lives in a handsome house in Washington avenue, Vark-villo, and amuses himself by breeding game fowls. His birds are very valuable and bring from $20 to $30 a piece. Mr. McCaughu's hen yard in the rear of his house adjoins the back yard of James Gormley's house. Mr. Gormley retired from the truck business about four years ago, and since that time has been living at Parkville. His house, which is as imposing as Mr. McCaugbn's, faoes Foster avenue. Gormley, however, has been breeding a common lot of hard-working chickens. A picket fence separates his hounery from that of McCaughn's, but occasionally the obicXcus would get mixed up This nevei was a cause of dispute between the two neighbors, as it was very easy to distinguish McCaugbn's high-born fowls and bring them back to their own ooop. A mouth ago one of Gormley's heus hatched out a brood of chickens, and among them was one that gave evidence of game blood. Several days later Mc-Caughn noticed the stranger in Gormley's coop, and immediately put in a olaim for it on the ground that one of bis fancy hens must have flown over into Gormley's yard and laid an egg in Gormley's hen's nest. On this theory he claimed the chicken. There was no doubting that the chicken was of the same bleed as McCaughn's obiokens, but Gormley said he was blessed if be would give it up. He admired the chicken. Be offered to pay McCaugbn $1 for the egg, but he said that McCaughu's claim on the bird was* offset by the fact that one of his hens had worked twenty-one days to hatch the egg. McCaugbn would not aooept this offer. He wanted the chicken, and he was willing to pay Gormley a reasonable price for the services of his ben in hatching the egg, and for whatever corn and other food the chicken had eaten. Gormley rejected Mo* C&ughn's oiler, and words passed between the neighbors. After the passage of the words Mc-Gaugbn engaged Judge Callahan to briog suit tor the recovery of the ohicken, and Gormley has engaged Wanhope Lynn to delend bis case. Judge Callahan said last night: UI have searched the legal reports in vain to find a parallel case, and am convinced that tne point at issue is new. It seems to mo that MoGangbn has the best right to the chicken. It is a thoroughbred, and bis hen undoubtedly laid the egg from which it was hatched. He Is willing to compensate Gormley for his trouble and the ben's sorvices. The case will have to bo argued on equity. If Justice McMahoo, ol Parkville, decides against us we will appeal the case. It is not a question of the money value of the chicken, but the rigbT of the case." Mr. Wanhope Lynn has put jin bis answer, which is a general denial of Mc-Caugu'a olaim. If Gormley's hen had not protected this egg, he says, the ehioken in question would never have been, hatched. Then again, if the eg�8 had boon collected aud cooked the game chicken would have been lost. Then there is anothor theory which he asserts the appearance of tho chickon seems to bear out. There is nothing to prevent one of Gormley's roosters from being the father of tho egg. A father's olaim acaordiDg to law is paramount, and if this theory U correct then the chicken belongs to Gormley's ooop. Mr. Lynn is also resolved to appeal the case if the decision is against him. He has submitted the problem to a number of lawyers, and tboy are about equally divided in their opinions as to the equity of the suit. Tho Hon. Bourke Cook ran thinks that McCaugbn has tho best claim to the chicken on the ground that one of bit; hens laid tho egg. Robort H.
