H. Ingham who sold it to Anna S. Paton. On tho 10th day of April, 1894. Lund reported a vaWd contract to Wm. Britton, who paid 8500 Mrs Paton claims that on account of this contract her mortgage is good. RUBS claims teat this contract was never a'p e £ « nd ^f" livered to Britton, and that the 8500 naid was forfeitable and that Britton acquired no title. The defendants claim that Britton paid in 1895 81,030 more on this contract, and that it was sent to RUSB, and that Britton' a title is good, and that tho Paton mortgage is consequently good. It will be seen from this brief statement that the question in each case was Lund's real authority as Russ agent. If he had full authority as Jeneral agent, could do what Russ himself could if he were present, then his contracts and receipts of money were binding on Russ. The mass of testimony was taken on the one issue, and the law of agency was exhaustively argued. All of Lund's letters to Russ and RUBS' replies were read to show what were the real relations existing. Mr. Clarke argued that there was nothing to show that Lund had any but special authority to do certain special things, and that beyond those things ho was acting on bis own responsibility. The opposing council argued that the correspondence, the actions of RUBS and the general understanding of the community warranted everybody in be- nzine that Lund had full authority as Buss' general agent, and that therefore Russ was bound by all his acts. Mr. Clarke begun his closln e argument this morning. Judge Thomas will probably decide the cases at once. CRIMINAL, CASE*. "Reddy" Rand, who stabbed Col.
