MRS. WILLIAM'S LECTURES.
The following appreciative notice
of the above named lady, who is to
Bpeak at the looms of the Library
Association to-morrow evening, is
from the Santa Barbara Indepen
dent: One who has listened to the lec
tures of Mrs. Elorenco Williams, al
ready given, on some "Books of
Our Times," is moved to bear
heartiest testimony to their absorb
ing interest nnd great value The
books chosen for illustration nre
charged with the ticincndous
thought and energies which arc
molding and impelling modern so
ciety. Somo of these run back, as
characteristic forces, to tho early
years of the nineteenth century, but
none of them nre spent forces,
every one of them is a living fire in
the veins of to-day. It is almost
superfluous to bay that the books
selected are full of intense dramatic
spirit and movement. Hut it is to
tho point to add that in Mis. Wil
liams they havo found an interpre
ter of rare discernment and sympa
thy. With a completeness which
few can attnin, she identifies herself
with the author, and thinks out his
thoughts. And there are few pro
bably who, through her meditating
imagination, do not rise to a truer
and broader conception of these
wi Rings than would othcrwiso bo
possible, ceitninly without except
ional advantage and piolongcd
study. Tho valuo of these lectures
moreover seems to bo not merely tho
better understanding of a few par
ticular books, but of their authors;
of tho liteiaturo they represent, and
of certain forces, hidden for tlio
most part, but everywhere, active,
and potent in all tho social condi
lions and movements of tho day. To
undci stand these clearly is no small
part of a student's education, in tho
times in which we live; to appre
ciate and feel them, an essential
condition for whoever shall do gen
erous and effective work for the fu
ture Such interpiutntioiib of these
embodied forces, therefore, as aio
brought to us by this gifted and
careful student, appeal not only to
schohus, but to patriots, philanthro
pists, and all wood cjlii'ns as well.

Micliicls Insurance Case.
SUPREME COURT APniL(TERM,
JiKiicn m'cully, vni'stniNu.
UEFOUE A JUU.
Charles Miehiels vs. Haitfoid
Insurance Co. and others.
This important caso opened ou
Tuesday last, continued throughout
yesterday, and was closed this
morning. Itaioso out of tho burning
of plaintiff's store and stock on tho
ltli August, 1880, for which he
claimed the payment of 810,000,
amount of insurance on stock.
Mr. C. O. Rcrgor, on tho part of
thrco insurniico companies, contest
ed the claim, hence tho present suit.
Messrs. Whiting and Creiguton ap
peared for tho plaintiff; Messrs.
Duio, Hatch and Dolo for defend
ants, appellants. Mr. Pierre Jones
noted as interpreter, tho plaintiff
preferring to speak French.
Tho following gentlemen were em
panelled as a jury: Messrs. W. W.
Hall, E. Marshall, M. Gloom, E. R.
Hendry, II. J. Agnow, Geoige
Strateuieyer, II. Lewis, C. J. Mc
Carthy, Major Hills, A. M. Mollis,
II. A. Parmaleo and Mr. Marshall.
Tho Hartford Insurance Co. was
represented by Mr. J. W. Cofran,
of San Francisco, as a special agent,
and Mr. C. O. Rciger represented
the other companies interested.
The first witness placed on tho
stand was Mr. Charles Micliicls, the
plaintiff. His testimony related
principally to tho slock on hand at
the time of the lire, and its value.
In cross-examination it was elicited
that he had made a bill of salo of
bis stock and fixtures in favor of
Mr. Whiting, a few days before the
fire,, in order to furnish security to
the parties who acted as bnndsmen
for him in an opium case in which
he was defendant. A wide differ
ence was found to exist betwixt the
appraiser's valuation of the 6tock
and tho amount of the invoices, the
former being considerably in excess.
This diffeienco was accounted for
by a laigo quantity of the goods, as
alleged by plaintiff, having been
destroyed at the timo of tlio lire,
and consequently wero not in slock
when the appraisement was made.
This allegation was eoiroboiated by
Mr. Creighton, who testified that
having had access to tho books he
diow up a schedule showing proof
Mr. Whiting lead a deposition by
Mr. Paul Neumann in which he
(Mr. N.) stated that he did not lake
awny ccitain laces, prepared for
delivery to him by Mr. Micliicls,
and assigning his reasons therefor.
Mr. Whiting also took tho stand,
and testified that the bill of sale
tiansferring the property to him was
made out by Mr. Neumann for the
pin pose of securing Mr. Micliicls'
bondsmen in the opium caso. There
was no monetary tiansaction and
tho document was merely looked
upon ns a sccuiity for the bonds
men. Ono of the nppiaiscrs was
examined at length as to the esti
mates of value made by him and
The appraisers' valuation was
Mr. F. M. Hatch of counsel for
the Insurance companies moved that
tho plaintiff ho nonsuited on
account of tho showing that the
ensured property had been trans
ferred without the consent of the
insurance company, the policy of
tho Hartford Insurance Co. express
ly stipulating that any transfer or
assignment by the insured without
consent of tho company mndo tho
policy null and void. In support
of his motion the attorney quoted
Mr. Creighton contested the mo
tion, asserting that the transfers
meant in tho policies, must bo
actual and redoi iled liansfcis, where
as tho one made by Miehiels was
but temporary and not in any way
such as would tend to invalidate tlio
insurance Tho weight of authori
ties was against the motion, and
counsel quoted in support from 2
Pickering p. 2 11) ; Howard's Piactico
Reports volumes 27 pp. ail 278 ;
12 Allen's Report p. !J81, and
others. Mr. Whiting followed, sup
poiting tho position taken by Mr.
Thin sday, April 21
DECISION ON Till: QUESTION OL" NON
SUIT. His Honor in deriding tho motion
for a nonsuit in the caso of Michicl
vs. Hartford Insuuineo Co., said:
The question arguod and submitted
to the Couit is, whether a nonsuit
should bo sustained on account of
an assignment of tho property hav
ing been made, by a bill of Balo
given to Mr. Whiting nnd tho policy
(of insuranco) thereby rcndeicd
void. As against the prima facie
conclusion that a forfeiture lias been
mado by tho chnngo of tillo, tho
counsel for the plaintiff adduce au
thorities to tho effect that where an
insurablo interest remains in the in
sured ho may recover although ho
may have moitgnged his ciitlio in
terest, or even liavo assigned it In
trist or conditionally.
Ills Honor quoted several autho
rities therefor but said theso oases
do not cite the clauses in the policy,
or nny clauses corresponding In
tcrnu on import witli those which
mo expressed in tho polioy in the
present caso. An argument based

the motion for nonsuit aro as fol
lows: "if any change
takes place in the title or posses
sion of the property whether by
sale, tiansfer, conveyance, legal,
piocess, etc., " or if tho
assuied is not tho sole, absolute, and
unconditional owner of the pro
perty insuied ' then and
in every such case this policy shall
I understand, His Honor said, that
the second condition quoted ex
presses tho state of facts which must
exist when the policy is issued.
Now has any change taken place in
tlio title by the execution of the bill
of salo to W. A. Whiting? In its
tcimsitis an absolute conveyance
to him of the piopcity covered by
the insurance Giving it the most
favorable construction asked for by
the plaintiff, that it is a conditional
sale, an unrecorded chattel mort
gage, if the instrument has any
effect and is not a mere futility, it
must be held that tho title of Mr.
Micliicls was changed thereby. Ho
was no longer the unconditional
owner. Mr. Whiting held a title
upon which ho could make a valid
salo to n third party having no
notice of any equities in tlio case.
The terms used in the clause aro
very comprehensive Any chnngo
in tho title, by salo or transfer. In
tho Michigan case cited it is said tho
words transfer or ciunrje of title are
moro comprehensive than tho word

consideration but there may be a
transfer or change of title without a
Upon tho most favorable construc
tion to bo given to this bill of salo
tho plaintili has violated an express
condition of his contract and thcieby
released tho defendant.
The motion for nonsuit is sus
tained. Counsel for tho plaintiff noted ex
ceptions to this l tiling.
Tho Court then discharged the
jury from fm tlicr consideration of
