Defendant stated that on 12th November  the claim declared a dividend of :$592 to each  half interest. ; Mr. Huskinson was not on the  creek to receive it, but he left a power of  attorney with Mr. Burreli, of the Bank of Brit������  ish Nortb Atnerica, to do so for him in accordance with  the bill of sale ; the first Instalment having to be paid out of the first  dividend.    Plaintilf obtained this money,   tn  the meantime Huskinson bad gone into bankruptcy, and the assignees, in looking over his  assets, found" this claim against Plaintiff, and*  made application to him for the money, but  instead of  giving any satisfaction, he  left  for San, Francisco.   Chief Justice Needham,  after taking the evidence of Mr. Jack, and  examining a copy of the bill of sale, decided  that McKenny bad; not   complied' with the  terms thereof, and that it "was therefore null  and void, and ordered the official assignee to  sell the half interest, which was accordingly  done, being purchased by John Martin, who  subsequently transferred it to Defendant.  J. S. Thompson was called for the defence,  and said���������Iwas secretary of the Davis co'y.,  at the time the last dividend of SI 181 to the  interest was declared. Mr. Burreli sent me a  letter showing me his authority for collecting  a dividend ou a half interest on behalf of Huskinson, and McKenny also claimed it. I der  clined paying it to either. McKenny then  brought a suit against me, which was decided  in his favor. At that time the claim did not  owe him more than $61, which was then paid  to him.  Mr. Robertson maintained tbat as Huskinson had no interest iu the claim, after executing a bill of sale to Plaintiff, his assignees  could have none, and could only dispose of  tbo consideration mentioned in said'bill of  sale.
