Interesting Litigation Reached
First Conclusion in Decision
By Judge Forin on Thursday
—Appeal Will Likely Follow
A c.ise ol more than usual interest
iu legal and litigant circumstances
v/ftD decided by His Honor Judge Forin
on Thursday afternoon, the time of
the Oourt being taken up almost during the whole day with arguments in
the case. Tbe notion was oue taken
bv (ins I.und against l'red Fraser und
A. Johnson to recover a balance on a
promissory note und sundry Oomnils-
pious As the judge gave his decision
in writiug and as that fully reviews
the whole circumstances ol the cute
accordion to the evidence submitted,
the judgment is published in lull, and
follows below:—
This ie an action to recover $1,IKIII,
being balance of a promissory note to
amount ol $500 and h further sum ol
$500, under a certain agreement in
writing dated the l'.hh duy ol .Mny
niiiile between tbe plaintiff and defendant- hy which the said plaintiff
agreed to advance for a period of nine
mouths tbe sum of $2,580.55 to be
iistd in payment of renewal fees and
registration fees of a certain trans er
of limber limits owned by tbe defend
The agreement is Bled as Exhibit. A
in the trial.
The promissory note is tiled as Exhibit IJ.
The facts are as follows:
The defendants knowing that, they
had to meet the above payment of
$2,580 56 to the Department of Public
Lmds on the 20th if May, 11108, had
opened up negotiations with the Mol
suns Bank at Kevelsloke, and aliout
nnou of the day btlore, i. c , on the
l'.hh of May, were advised that the
bank could not acoommodate tbem,
they arranged with the plainlitV for u
loan uud were uskid for $1,000 bonus
or premium for tbe use of the money,
($2,580.55) lor nine months. Tlie de-
feiniaiits were to execute a note foi
$8,080.55 witb interest at 8 per cent,
per annum. The interest on the note
I notice from the bank's computation
would be a further sum of $188.35 for
the nine mouths: besides this it was
agreed under tl e agreement of tbe
lllth ut May thai the plaiutitl should
receive $500 by way of bonus, in addition to the $500 added to the sum
lent and included in the note, if the
defendants succeeded in making a
sale of the said timber limits; in all
the agreement provides that the cuBts
to the defendants for the me of ihe
$2580 for nine months would be
$1,188 35. Besides $500 as commission to the solicitors was to be paid,
which is the sui ject of tbe action ol
Scoit A Briggs v. Fraser et al tried
herewith by consent.
Thus we have the position of lhe
defendants ou the 19th ol May, that
they were asked to agree to pay $1088 -
35 for the use ol $2,580 for nine mon lbs
io the plaintiff and his solicitors who
were also act ug for the defendants.
The agreement further provided
that the defendants were to execution absolute transfer to the plaintiff
of the timber licenses and the defendant Johnson was to do the same in
respect to some interest in lands, aud
it was agreed that il the promissory
uoie was not paid at maturity or
before then that the timber lioenses
and land so assigned should belong to
the plaintiff absolutely without any
notice to the delendauts and time wus
in tbis respect to le the essence of
the contract.
This appears to be a rather bard
bargain on tbe part of tbe plaintiff,
but if it were necessary to save valuable timber imits and if tbe credit ol
the delendauts was at bucIi t low ebb
that to save the limits they had *,o
pay these exborbitant sums, there is
nothing illegal in tbe contract and it
could be enforced, nor would the rules
ol equity in any way interlere to
modify the contract ur inquire into
the fairness of the consideration,
I suggested to counsel lor plaintiff
lhat he should amend his plaint hy
claiming on a iii.iniiuii merit, but be
iltclineil Ile elected to stand or fall
by the contract ou tbe 18th ol May
and said he was entitled to the $1,000
or nothing.
On a motion lor non suit made at
the close of the plaintiff's claim I dismissed the action   with   costs  for   Ibe
following reasons
The plaintiff procured from the
bank on May l'Jtb, 1008, two drafts
lor $.1530 and $41 respectively in lavor
of the Deputy Minister ol hands and
Works to pay for the renewals iif the
defendants' limber licenses and registration lees. The plaintiff aud bis
Solicitor, who had the custody ol the
drafts, lelt (or Victoria in the evening
if the 10th, the defendant Fraser was
on the train anil together they wenl
down to Victoria.
Un the morning ol the 20th the
defendant Kraser met tbe plaintill on
the street in Victoria and asked him
to hold ctl as he expected money Irom
Vanoouver, and in the alii -in. ...ii thin
DlODSy arrived and defendant Eraser
paid tin- renewal dues of the timber
licenses and plaintill handed to him
the umber licenses uu which he says
le loaned Ibe money and Mr. llriggs
the saini'day returned to plaintiff his
1 um-1 lind an a fact tbat Mr. Briggs
was boliling these drafts as solicito
lor tin-plaintiff. lie says: "11 then
li..d been a dispute anil' Fnser hud noi
pronii c 1 to protect I,uud, I would
have advised Lund to pay ibe money
into the Department." He was watch
ing the plaintiff's case as between defendant FriiBer and the plaintiff. The
draftB werr never tendered to Fraaer
nor to the Department and the lioen-
se-i, which were the main security,
were returned to defendant Fraser
. bile tbe drafts were returned to
plaintiff'. The draftB were by him
returned to the Molsons bank a fow
days later and credited to bis account.
There appears to mo u t:.tul failure
ol consideration us tar us the agreement of the 19tn of May, 1908, on the
promissory note for $3,080.55 ol the
same date is to be construed. The
money in the form of limits to bn
paid tor the renewal dues was returned
to the plaintill' by hia solicitor the day
after it was taken irom the bank.
There wiib no tender of trie money to
defendant Fraser and the plaintiff deposited it to his own credit. The
timber licenses which the plaintiff
says wus the real security fur the loan
were on tbe sume day returned to
defendant Fraser. The transaction
seems to me to have closed ilsell aud
the agreement of May tilth is a dead
The new arrangement iinule in Victoria is not tlm subject of this action
I cannot help commenting ou the
lack of good (.nib which characterized
the dealings of tbe plaintiff with his
hanker in lesiect tu tbo note for
$3.1180 55 which was lelt at the bank
notwithstanding that the drafts were
returned to bun. Tbe plaintiff lefl
the manager of the Molsons hank
under the impression that this note
was good as collateral security to its
face value and it was so ubciI by him
at the bank some months later. The
iiiunager of the bank notified defendants Fruser and Juhnsou in Dec
11108 I think it was, or thereabouts,
mat they were liable on a note in
the bank for $3,1180 ..nd accrued interest, and at once tbere was trouble as
would be expected.
Mr. Briggs in his evidence says tint
the plaintiff offered to accept $300 at
some later date iu full settlement of
his claim, but the delendauts refused
to puy this unless he would take it out
of the returns expected from a peud
ing deal with the timber, and this the
plaintiff r (used.
The delays and dealings, however,
on y go to convince me that the
o.iginal contract had lor nun
months no place iu the plaintiff's
mind aud he had given up any idea ut
enforciug it as binding on tbe defendants.

SATURDAY,  MAY   2D 1909
talistio invest inenl, is concerned—I view of what  mny
United States agencies, Iworth  the whil
W'luii should lie clearly  understood uml forcibly improssed where
lie it mny lu-
^^^^^^^^^^ f the voter to
think before casting his ballot.
There are  many reasons why  the
it is not clearly understood is that| whole educational plant of the city
the control nf Canadian industries
where these are dependent on British capital, Bhould lie absolutely
under lhe thumb of such capital.
There is much talk tliese days of
lhe bonds iif empire mid hints Hint,
these can be made tighter by the
Iniililiiig of Dreadnaughth and such
like contributions to the militant
burdens of iho Mother lmnl. While
we believe lhal n reasonable contribution for such n purpose by
Canada, or any other colony, would
impress lin- world powers with tbe
solidarity of lhe empire, tbere nre
other things al the present time
which will ussisi materially in the
knitting nf tbe strands wbicb are
now more rapidly than ever binding together tbe various parts of
tin' nation.
Wbile in n sense material interests lm vi' ever been foremost among
tbe nn.live- iliui huve inspired
human breasts in Iheir conquests,
ii is u pity that the direction of
these bus nul always been wise, and
Britons have always been unfavorably known for their uncalled for
and unpardonable indifference to
the welfare of the colonies. While
we maintain that Englishman have
as good a chance in Canada to
ninke the best of often unfortunate
circumstances, it is not equally
true thut Englishmen who have
had ibe fortunate opportunity to
make investments in fun ign countries huve been ns appreciative of
Canadian us tbey have of the
United States.
Tbe fact is that English investors
who have been Bending tln-ir millions westward have given little|
thought to the development of tiie
empire. They have not been imperially patriotic They have bei n
merely mercenary uml—tn tell un
unpleasant truth—idle.
should be centralized nnd there are
equally cogent reasons why it
should not. nnil it would be imprudent to advise as to the ultimate
school location.
For ihe information of the voters
ninl tbe inosl important Hung is
Hint they may be kept informed—
is the statement of thefact tlmt the
trustees bave secured n decided
option on the properly known us
Block I.I 1 mul that ii is iheir right
to buy at tbo assessed value of
§5,400 should the voters so decide.
The plebiscite proposed takes all
responsibility off the shoulders of
the trustees ns tn whether Block
l.ll shall be purchaBed.Iand tbe
proposed new scboi.il located in the
western end of the city near to the
present public buildings or in the
other und uptown location. When
lhe decision is made by tin- vote ol
the people it Mill bo too lute lo
reflect on tbr action of the trustees.
Such decisions are sometimes vital
and lhe present is un instance in
which it may be found to be so.
In order to reach an intelligent
conclusion the ratepayers ami
others interested should be called
together and free discussion of the
mutter allowed. No misunderstandings Bhould arise from such
occasions and those who bave to

As an illustration of how une must

ihe lollowing is going the rounds of

"It is expected that a delegation

there is a Btrong Bentiment in the

Singularly enough uo une in Kivel-

How and Why the Locals Won
In glorious weather and on a true
wicket, the season has opened auspiciously lur the Kevelstoke ciicket club,
their matches on Monduy und Tues-
ihiv resulting in two wins.
The victi ry uver Kamloops ou Mon-
liy wus anticipated, fur the latter
club bus hud groat dillieully in secur-
ing a decent prnciicc ground mul their
practices hnve been very lew. Notwithstanding the few practices, some
guud und attractive cricket wuh seen,
and, during one period of the Bevelstoke innings their bowling was so
guud Unit lucnl men were kept guessing and four guud wickets went down
for unly 38 runs. The scure in detail
appeared in Wednesday's issue of tbe
fii ai i. Herald,

New Times Final Drive
Having been   born   later than their
older, though not  parent   nor   in sny
sen-,,   rival   cluh   the    "N.»   Times
Bridge ('lui.''   held its annual closing
[unction at the home of  Mr. and Mre
H. Cunningham  Morris, Third Street
west, on   Wednesday   eveuiug.   This
olub was  instituted on account of tbe
natural    limitations     oi     individual
homes when the matter of the accommodations of   members at tbe regular
meet iugs   had  tu be considered and is
in nu sense   a   rival tu tbe Old Times
Club.     The   clo»in? function ol   the
formerly   mentioned    cumpany   touk
place under  particularly pleading circumstances.     Tlie Beal drive took np
the must of the evening and was much
iinj lyed because of   the keen expectu
thins of the computing   members as to
the   winners   in   the   sets.      In good
nature the competition was aet tied uy
tlie following scores:    Fur the season's
highest   total;    Ladies,   lirst,  Mis. H.
Cunningham  Morris; second, Mrs. W
M,  Lawrence  Gentlemen, lirst, T. i__.

" Lorimer "
(A Review)
Oranges, bananas, lettuce, rhubarb
einniis, green onions, arriving daily
il O, li. Ilium- & Co's,
The real name ii Lnrimer of tbe
Ni rlhnest, and because the honk is
true to ite till", a review is worth
while. Tbe story is one which should
I'e res 1 I y all Canadian boys and
girls becauee of its inspiring patriotism in .i its lucid portrayal uf the
conditions which-were encountered by
a lurge section of the people of the
country in making it what it is.
Experiences ot economy ii nut of deprivation are not yet uncommon
aiming many ol the youths of the far
back sections o! the country and the
slory of how these may be endured
and how by tlieir endurance, like
llaniiet's troubles "ended," will doubtless sustain many a lad who would
otherwise become discontented witb
bia lot on the soil.
The chief value of the volume, however, could it be circulated iu the Old
Country, is in its educative value as
an instruction tu Englishmen on the
pluck aud brains, with other things
tint are necessary to success in tbeir
efforts at self help as well as their
contributions to the construction ol
the empire such as are taking place
all the time, The hero, Lorimer, with
his chums aud people whom he meets
i nut incidentally, but according to tho
deep design ol tbe author are so well
lea tu red that an English reader ol the
volume will acquire a more correct
idea ol life in the Northwest than he
oould by attempts at assimilation of
tomes of the literature that is sent out
by cruity and designing agents of ad-
verti-ing schemes. If the book could
ne widely read in England it would
play an important pari in tbe settlement ul the vexed question as to
whether Englishmen need apply. The
volume is on sale at the local stores.
