WALLACE.

Supreme Court of Nebraska.

Error from Douglas county.

[20 N.W. 314]

George W. Doane and E. W. Simeral, for plaintiff.

Howard B. Smith, for defendant.


MAXWELL, J.

On the tenth day of January, 1883, the will of one Annie Wallace was admitted to probate in the county court of Douglas county, the defendant being the executor. On the sixteenth of that month the plaintiffs herein filed a bond in said court for an appeal to the district court, which bond was duly approved. A transcript was duly filed in the district court on the fifth day of February following. At the next term of the district court the attorney for the defendant filed a motion to dismiss the appeal, for the following reasons: “(1) That no such bond for an appeal was given herein as is required by law; (2) that no appeal bond has been given herein; (3) that no transcript was filed in this court within the time required by law; (4) that the notice of appeal in this case is not sufficient in law; (5) that said notice of appeal was not served within the time required by law; (6) that there has been filed in this court no proper evidence of the notice of appeal as required by law; (7) that said appeal was not granted by the court below as required by law; (8) that appeal does not lie to this court from the county court in this case.” The motion was sustained and the appeal dismissed.

The objections to the bond are too general to be considered. If a bond is defective in any particular, the party objecting should specifically point out the defect. It is not sufficient to object generally, as that the bond does not conform to the requirements of the statute. A bond filed and duly approved is not void; and, even if defective, may be amended or a new bond given. O'Dea v. Washington Co. 3 Neb. 122; Casey v. Peebles, 13 Neb. 7;S. C. 12 N. W. REP. 840. The objections to the bond, therefore, did not justify the court in dismissing the appeal.

2. Section 1 of “An act providing for an appeal from the decision of the county court in certain matters,” approved February 28, 1881, provides that “in all matters of probate jurisdiction appeals shall be allowed from any final order, judgment, or decree of the county court to the district court, by any person against whom any such order, judgment, or decree may be made, or who may be affected thereby.” The section above quoted provides that in all matters of probate jurisdiction an appeal will lie...
