\\, l,ave betvn thus explicit in giving
t. p. lint i this case, not because it is
=ec' l.~iiv interesting in itself, but on
ti.,. ir,,undl that the first proceeding un
i.r ti.e Bankrupt law in this Court
l h;rid t deserves to be chrocicled. It is
Ia :i:l singular, since the law was
ft::: ,.,i .to bent-lit debtors, rather than
,'cr..lt, r.,. that this first case should be
,l,.,. "t inoluntary bankruptcy-that is
,,n,. \%% ,.re the creditor, instead of the
dbt.i,tr. claims the protection of the
,',:rts. It shows that the law is advan
la .ºlus to hone.sty on both sides. It
,, , nlv relieves the embarrassed bank
rui t tr ii the rapacity of his creditors,
i,,, it tequally protects the creditor from
:I, ra.-calitv of his debtor, and secures
an .,jiuitable division of the assets of
t:,. lanrkrupt. It is thought by eminent
Iaw. r- that the existence of this lIw
w il" tie away with a large proporticof
ir civ\il suits. It will prove a great
x .r:,x in which will be swallowed hosts
,lt a:ttachinient.s supplemlentary proceed
inI1L. saits on pronlimary notes, foreclo
.sr.r s of mortgages and other processes.
I hi. 1)is-t rict Courts as Courts of Bank
ruticv evxperience considerable incon
v. n.i.nec, at present from the fact that
xie- ru!,,s adopted for their guidance by
11W. *ulpreme Court have not yet been
pIlli-shed. As they were adopted sev
*-ral we-eks since, the inference is that
they have fallen into the hands of some
slu'culator who expects to turn an hon
est penny by their publication. In the
neantinme the District Courts are, to a
re:-tain extent, working in the dark in
bankrupt cases, having nothing but the
text of the law to guide them. Any so
tion they take may be found void when
the rules are published.
