242 STEWART V. THE STATE. [Term of
Statement of the case.
JAMES STEWART V. THE STATE.
1. INTERVENOR-APPEAL. A judgment dismissing a petition of intervention
is not such a final judgment as will authorize an appeal by the intervenor,
before final judgment rendered in the court below on the matters
in issue between plaintiff and defendant. Were the practice different,
the remedy of intervention would cause a multiplicity of suits, instead
of preventing them, which is its main object.
2. BANK ACCOUNT. A bank account book, being a chose in action not
assignable by delivery, its delivering to a third party will not vest in
him dominion over the money it represents, nor authorize him to maintain
an action for it in his own name.
APPEAL from Hardin county. Tried below before the Hon.
