chsadvantages, as they shall be ascertained by the

it is agreed that (A) the stock of merchandise is to

under these provisions, it must be borne in mind
that the defendants and their new partners have
five-en tha to the plaintiff's oce-sixlh interest in
the assets to be collected and secured; and in the
absence of frand it is to be assnmcd that every act
of their relative to those assets would, in their
best judgment, be done for the purpose of helping
to realise the payment of the whole thereof for the
benefit of all concerned.

On the contrtrv we think that thoae acts which
the plJntiff criUciwa were done in the utmost
good faith to aid to accocopJUh speedy settle

On looking over all the accounts it appears to us
that the items marked off are properly so marked,
mrl conceded!; they far exceed tba amount held
in metre; and that the items left are properly
held not yet tally secured, and that the turns col
lected are comparatively so small that the pay
ments of principal to the plaintiff have been ranch
greater than he could have required to be made,
and that in justice there is nothing of principal

rarement of pome pro rata of their share
Under this clause, it is possible in case of unex
pected and disastrous losses that the plaintiff may
have to return to the defendants some of the
moneys he has received upon account.
The question as to whether the plaintiff is not
entitled to the payment ot interest is one of more
difficulty. As is said by the plaintiff counsel,
conditions are annexed to the fpecLfic undertak
ings to pay principal, but none are attached to the
inerlaking to pay interest. The contract says:
Interest in current account shall be remitted
aemi-annually until the account is dosed."
The interest to be paid is only six per cent. The
interest chargeable upon the capital by the defend
ants is much greater. There is nothing to show or
properly to imply we think that this remittance of
interest is to depend upon the collection of interest
cron the capitai We think it most be presumed
that the defendants were bound to take the risk of
periodical remittals ot interest.

the authorized agent of the plaintiff for an ac

The Court in effect confirms the iudement erven

above mentioned claims. Until the

shall be remitted semi annually to E. Fcrstenau
The rrecise intention ot the narties in these
clauses of their contract must be ascertained by
examination not only of the words before us but
of the context ot the whole instrument. We have
seen that this was. in brief, to this effect, vix
statement of the debts then dne the firm, that .
r urstenan owned one-sixth of them, that the re
maining partners would with discretion and
there, and has not returned. If any question arose
as to what to do to secure or collect any of the
capital assets, the plaintiff was not at hand to can
suit about it. And we hold, after reading all the
rrrcvisians bearing on the points, that the plaintiff
intr.drd to rrant the rtower to the defendants and
their associates to act in the absence of proof of
fraud or gross negligence, aa tnocgn nis personal
consent were riven to all thev did.
We also hold that, for the purposes of account
ing between the parties, the defendants had the
right to mark off debts they deemed lost, and
tnereoy to witnaraw inose amounts trom me ag
gregate capital to be divided. They could judge
hrttr nf this than the nlaistiff. He could not pos
sibly personally know anything about it. He
granted to them his right to act in the premises.
Of course be still retains his share in any claims
so marked off, and any future nnexpected collec
tions wm be suDject to a mvuian wun nun, untu

The plaintiff rlMT that much more of the
assets have been collected than is admitted by the
1st The Plaintiff claims that certainly witen tne
changes in the partnership of July rist, 1SS1, were
made, the paragraphs we have above quoted from
the contract then made, constitute, aside frcm the
plantation accounts therein specially excloded, a
sale ot the whole of the capital assets in which he
has a share to the new firm, and thereby that the
wTini war anrwtariiiaiiT rminriHi.
We think this is cleazir untenable. The lettinc
in of new partners was agreed to by the plaintiff.
The plaintiff asks an accounting as to the sums
paid in by the new partners if any and claims to
be allowed for his part of it. This cannot be done.
Incidentally he has the advantage of the funds
paid in if any for they make it more sure, that
advances will continue to be made if thought best.

The plaintiff would seem to claim that the de
fendants had no ncht to indce where to make
such advances, and that when made they were at
the defendants nsk. This is not so. The plaintiff
also ctT"t that by incorporating the plantation,
and selling the stock the defendants, in effect, by
the change in their security, collected the whole
debt. We do txit think so. Wethink the clauses
from the contracts which we have creotec author
ized we inoorroratinc of the plantation, far the
pojpuse ot trying to secure the outstanding debt,
and that the evidence, though meagre and not
specific shows as w have said that the plaintiff
ana tne oereraiartta nave received an equal propor
tional benefit therefrom.

because although it still stand unpaid in whole
yet we oexencanu nare xoaoa urge advances bo
that the debt now stands at $5&S4.17. and now.
since this suit was begun, have bought half the
plantation at the pricejof $110,0001 The piawtrfTf
counsel quotes from the original contract which
provides that real estate or plantation propertr
shall not be percbased without the consent of all
we partners ; and says this covenant haa been
violated, and so the debt must be deemed collected.
The evidence shows that the advances and In
vestment were made beeauseot,and with reference,
to the collection of the original debt. It was made
for the benefit of we Plaintiff as well as of the
defeodanta, and any profits azismg from we pur-

any way. after first cancrfmg all new advances
made to carry on the plintation for the benefit of
the parties hereto must then apply 00 the original
debt- We think the retiring srexnnt fiivea f all
power to the defendants to bind the plaintiff by
such a purchase made with auch ,n object tor
si rails r reasons to those above grren to justify
other similar acta. For tike reasons to those
gtatetT. the plaintiff's counsel demands that ac

If airr loss of tba oric-iml debt

they actually collected, he to suffer his share, ot
the loss of such accounts as were lost. It was
supposed there would be losses, but the owners of
the five-sixths did not make themselves responsi
ble, for jyiy loss, to the owner of the one-sixth.
These amounts were chargeable with interest and
the interest from Sent. 1st. 1S7S was kvpt separate
and one-sixth part was to be credited to H Furs-
xenau up to we settlement ox we strove mentioned
ow a settlement of the claims mav be bv a
total loss, a Tartial realization and Quittance, or
payment in full. It must be considered that the
agreement contemplates this, and that certain of
the accounts, c d. and g. have been settled1 by
total los. Until settlement, the house charged
the debtor parties and credits E. Fnrstenau in
his account, and by the agreement is to remit It
eemiannually. It will be granted I wink that the
defendants are not bound to pay interest after
the prmcrpal has disappeared, and it must also be
considered that thev are not to nav interest al
though it has been charged no to we debtor and
credited in E. Furstenau's current account for a
considerable period of time before the hope of
collection is abandoned and the account written
off as a loss.
If in a case of wis kind thev shall appear to
have, remitted in excess of what proves to be
good principal, I hold them not bound to remit
till interest has accused in excess ot the deficit.
If there might be some difficulty in keening the
current account exactly paid up. I should hold
that on the final settlement with E. Forstenau he
shall be paid only his share of actual realizations
made and interest on them at 6 per cent.
I cannot take the view that the account stated
at E Fnrstcnsu's retirement from the firm is to be
treated as his capital, on which he ts to have
