The issue for a hearing or trial in the court of common pleas shall be made by the original papers filed with the clerk of the board of county commissioners, including the statements of the appellants. No pleadings shall be filed on appeal. The allegations in any petition, or in any application, claim, or statement filed in the proceedings will on appeal be deemed to be denied by those opposing. After an appeal has been perfected by any owner, any other interested owner by motion, oral or in writing, may by order of court be entered on the record as jointly interested with the appellant. In such case such owner shall be bound for costs with the appellant if the decision or order appealed from is sustained.
