Judgment of the court below af
1. In an action for commission earn
ed by a broker in effecting an ex
change of property of his principal,
where the complaint pleaded a writ
ten contract of employment of the
broker by the principal to make an ex
change and a written contract of ex
change between the principal and a
customer procured by the broker; an
j answer which alleged (a) that the
! principal had not accepted the prop
erty of the customer; (b) that the
principal had not accepted the cus
tomer as a proper party with whom !
: to make an exchange other than on the
terms of the written contracts entered
into by them.; (c) that the written
contracts of exchange were intended
by the parties to be merely stipulations j
by which an exchange of property!
might be effected and not a valid, bind- I
Ing and enforceable contract of ex- j
change; (d) that the broker had not)
done all he was required to do in or-;
del' to earn his commissions; (e) that 1
the customer had failed to perform his 1
part of the contract: tendered issues
of law and not of fact.
2. Where the answer raises issues j

Uient on the issues of law involved
.md a motion for judgment on the;
pleading's is properly entertained. j

mission earned by him in effecting an j
exchange of the property of his prin-1
cipai, where the complaint pleads a
valid and enforceable written con

change property, it was not neces
sary for the complaint to allege that
the customer was "in a position and

property which he proposed to ex

entering into a contract of exchange
with the customer produced by the
broker, accepted the customer as able,
