of St. Louis, reported the case to the
solicitor and said as the government
had suffered no loss by the trans
action, and as there were other miti

Cuendet should be indicted. The soli

wiis present at the Tewksbury alms
house investigation to-day. Jos. A.
Chase testified he had worked for
Miss Manning, and with her knowl
edge had taken bodies to Harvard

Mr. Sanborn, a minister of some
e'uinence, in which he stated
that Spaulding, one of the trustees
of the alms house, had boasted
that while no emolument was at
tached to trusteeship, he could make
it pay. The governor intimated that
this was done by turning over con
tracts to outside parties with whom
Spaulding divided profits. The gov
ernor then ottered a printed tes
timouiid as to the character of
Sanliorn, which, after some
hscussion, was admitted. John

Synopsis of Opinions of the Supreme
RKPOETKn BY ED. J. HAMUKK.
Parties desiring information upon matters
concerning the higher courts will receive such
by writing our court reporter. 1
City National bank vs. Cupp & Co.;
from Tarrant county. Oral opinion
on motion to dismiss. Although a
stockholder is president of an appeal
ing corporation, and signs the appeid
bond as such president, yet he may
further sign the appeal bond as a
surety. The fact that an attorney in
the cause may appear as a surety
uikmi the appeal lond will not, of
itself, vitiate the bond; and where
nothing to the contrary is shown, it
will be presumed such attorney ap
pears on the appeal bond as a surety,
with tho permission of the lower
court. Motion to dismiss appeal over
ruled. Everheart vs. Isbell; from Grayson
county. Although the appeal liond
in this case clearly and accurately de
scribes the judgment iu every particu
lar except as to amount, yet. although
the bond is given for a much larger
amount, the variance is fatal, nor can
appellant cure this defect by offering
a new bond curing the defect. Ap
peal dismissed. Willson, J.
Miick & Co. vs. White & Son; from
Collin county. Where the note sued
on is attached to, and made a part of
the petition, and imports a considera
tion it is unnecessary to allege a con
sideration for the note. (Art. 4488; il
Law Review 143 and citations). Af
firmed with damages. Willson, J.
Ileininghetfer vs. the state; appeal
from Dallas county. The evidence
in the case being totally insuflicient
to indicate any intention to volun
tarily return the stolen property, the
court correctly refused to charge the
law governing in such cases. The
evidence is sufficient, there is no i V
ror. and the judgment is affirmed.
Want vs. the state; appeal from
Tarrant county. The defendant be
ing present in court when the convic
tion for a misdemeanor was had, the
judgment should have cited that the
defendant "be committed to jail until
such tine and costs are paid." IC. C.
P. Arts. 805 and 791. As rendered,
that the state recover of the defen
dant the amount of fine and costs,
there was no valid final judgment.
Appeal dismissed. White, P. J.
Fort Worth and Denver Citv rail
way vs. Lamphear & Sanders; from
Wichita county. Because appellant
also filed opposition to the award
does not dispense with the required
citation, without service of which up
on appellant, citing him to appear
and answer the opposition to the
award of the commissioners filed by
appellee the court is without jurisdic
tion to render judgment by default.
lR. S. Art. 4202. The judgment
should describe the land condemned
and vest the right of way therein in
appellant. R. S.Art. 4208; 32 Tex.
1'L'i. Reversed and remanded. Will
Braden vs. the state; from Lamar
county. Defendant was present in
court, the assessed penalty was a fine
only, the judgment rendered-therefore,
that the state recover of the de
fendant the amount of the fine and
costs, etc., and that execution issue
therefor was not a valid final judg
ment. Appeal dismissed.
Heatherly vs. the state, from Gray
son county. Where defendant was
convicted of a misdemeanor and the
punishment only a fine, and where
defendant was not present, it is held
that a judgment which commands
that "execution or commitment may
issue," is not good, but that it should
be that a capias forthwith issue, com
manding the sheriff to arrest him and
commit him to jail until the fine and
costs are paid, and that execution
issue against his property therefor.
(Art. 805. C. C. P.) Appeal dismissed.
