COMMERCIAL PANK OF LYNCH BURO V. MILLER ET ALS. Supreme Court of Appeals of Virginia. September 22, D'.'S. PARTNERSHIP - LIABILITY OP MEMBER?WHERE TWO FIRMS, UNE IN ENGLAND AND THE OTHER IN AMERICA. AGREED THAT THE LATTER SHOULD BUY TOBACCO AND SHIP TO THE FORMER ON JOINT ACCOUNT. EACH TO BEAR EXPENSES AND SHAKE LOSSES AND PROFITS EQUALLY, THE MEMBERS OF EACH FIRM ARE PARTNERS AS TO'THIS BUSINESS?THE MEM? BERS OF THE ENGLISH FIRM WERE NOT LIABLE FOR A NOTE MADE BY A MEMBER OF THE A ME IMC AN Fl KM AFTER THE CESSATION uE BUSINESS BE? TWEEN THE TWO FIRMS, AND POR A SUBSEQUENT DEBT IN? CURRED BY SAID MEMBER IN HIS OWN BUSINESS. This was a suit by the plaintiff bank to collect by way of f<.reign attachment notes made by Milier Ac Co. to the bank, and the property of the defend? ants, Jcae & Sans, who were a. firm tiading In England, was attached. Several years before this suit was brought Miller was a member of the linn uf Miller .v Hawkins, of Lynch burg, Virginia, and the iwo (Inns of Jose .V: Sons and Miller .V: Hawkins were engaged In buying tobacco In I America and selling it In Europe on Joint account. The drafts. Sc. on ac? count of thi;< business, were collected through the plaintiff bank. Mill. :- at? tending :u that matter with the bank. In ?n= ??!;?? iii-n^L-Millc::. ?.-HJLW kina was dissolved: and in 1SIM Miller, who was conducting the tobacco business as R. L. Miller & ('.>.. made four notes to the plaintiff, which were on account of that business, and these were the miles sued <>n. the plaintiff claiming that Miller * Hawkins and Jos? & Sons were liable as partners for them. The lower court dismissed the bill, and this decision was a 111 r med in the Court Of Appeals. The court nays: Whatever may have been the Intention of the parties there? to, the agreement of December 24, 1SST <:lie ag:cement to buy and sell tobacco hi Joint account), made and consti? tuted the persons composing the firm of Miller A- Hawkins, and those com? posing the firm <d* T. P. Jose ?'i Sons, partners in the buying, preparing and shipping bright Virginia leaf tobacco, and such other classes of tobacco as were contemplate.! by the agreement, and to conduct all usual trade Opera? tion.-? connected therewith, the part? nership to continue for live years front January 1, 1SSS, till terminated by lim? itation, or os provided In the agree? ment, or by mutual consent of the pa rtners. It does not follow, however, that the debts sued on here are debts properly chargeable to this partnership, whether contracted l.y R. L. Miller, or by lt. L Miller as R. L Miller & Co., or by Miller & Hawkins. The qucstlon'Te mains whether or not these debts were contracted on the faith and credit of tho Jos.-s as partners with Miller & Hawkins, cr whether the money was loaned for the benefit of the partner? ship, or th.- partnership received the benefit "f the loan. If they were ever the partnership debts, they remain so. of course, until paid- It is settled law that, "the borrowing of money and negotiation of bills ami notes being in? cident to. and usual in. the business of copartnership formed for the purpose of trade, it follows that when n copart? ner borrows money professedly for the firm, and executes therefor a nego? tiable instrument in the copartnership name, it will bind all the partners, whether llio borrowing was really for the firm, or not. or whether he diverts and misapplies the funds, or not; pro? vided the lender is not himself c.isni ?y.aiii uf I he Intended fraud, and the burden will nut be thrown upon him lo show thnt he was not cognisant of such fraud, or to prove value given fur the paper." But the question in this case is. did Miller Hawkins, or K. L. Miller, or tho latter, trading as R. L. Miller <fe Co.. borrow of the appellant bank the money evidenced by the notes in suit, professedly for the firm of which the Joses were partners? The court then discusses the facts, at length and concludes: We are of opinion that appellant has failed to show that F. P. Jose Sons are liable fur the debts asserted in its bill. On the contrary, the proof is that the debts were con? tracted by Miller, acting fur himself, or Miller & Hawkins, but not as a mem? ber of. i,i- agent for. a firm in which T. P. Jose ?t Suns were partners. Affirmed. MOORE V. CARR. Supreme Court uf North Carolina. December 20, 1S03. INDORSERS IN BLANK OF A NOTE BEFORE DELIVERY TO THE PAYEE BEING LIABLE AS SURE? TIES TO ANY HOLDER UNDER CODE SECTION 60; A PARTIAL PAYMENT BY MAKER AFTER MATURITY IS A PAYMENT BY THE INDORSERS, AS REGARDS THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS. Little borrowed f 1 oo from the plaintiff ami gave his note: and the defendants indorsed their names in blank on the note befme it was delivered to the payee, the plaintiff. Annual payment? were made by the maker, and the last payment was oi April 13, lv<*, and this action was brought April 1".. 1898. The statute of limitations was pleaded. The defendants claim that as they were In dorsers ,nnd as more than three years had elapsed since the maturity of the note, they are discharged, notwith? standing the recent payment by the maker of the note The lower court held the Indorsees liable and they ap? pealed. The Court says: Hearing In mind that the law should fit the facts in all cases, i: would seem that this question ought to be under? stood by this time. The ac^ of 1S27 (Code 60) declared thru indorsers shall be liable as sureties to any-holder, and that they may be sued without demand on the principal debtor. Many decisions have been made construing this statute, and they ull bold the Indorscrs liable as sureties, upon facts like those now be? fore us. and that they are of the class of original promisors. A payment by either of them, or by the principal, is a payment by all. because the benefit of the payment enures to each one. and it follows that the statute of limitations operates only from the las; payment. [The Court hero cites cas^s.] In each of these cases the indorsers were held to b'- original promisors, and were as liable as If they had signed as sureties on the face of the note. The statute declares such indorsers' liability is that of a surety, and a blank Indorsement before delivery is construed and pre? sumed to b? Intended as a suretyship. No difficulty can arise if the Indorse? ment is special, and proper words are used to show the intention of the party to be otherwise than that presumed from a lila ok indorsement. Tlese prin? ciples must govern between the holder of the not - and the maker, sureties and such Indorsers. The rights and liabili? ties of Indorscrs nmong thorns ives. and In their relations to the maker and his sureties, or,- not affected by these de. i Bions. Tins - questions are not pre? sented here, atid we Bay nothing about them. Affirmed. mai* I.im'. '<( llllllt m: of ! Ol?! Uomltiloii Str?m?lil|? Company l or l e'oi n.?r> .

LAP.OK BROOD AT NORFOLK FARM SUPPLY fu.'S WAREHOUSE. The merry "chirping of many little chickens was heard yesterday morning in the store-room of the Norfolk Farm Supply Company, and while the snow? banks on the outside were not condu Blve to the breeding of young chicks, the little fellows were as happy In their brooder home as though they were out in Norfolk county and joyfully picking of the tender .June grass. The Farm Supply Company are ex? tensive dealers in Incubators and In odors, and In order to sh iw their country friends the advantages of the incubator over the old "domlnaker" ' hen, a few weeks ago an Incubator was ' "set" and the mammoth "hen" has been v.-ry attentive to her duty, the natural result being that several days ago ab ?in sixty baby chicks came shelling out In? to the warm embrace of their foster mother. The babies were at once transferred to a nice room brooder and the patent "biddy" was again "set." The little fellows have attracted the attention <>f every one who goes Into the store and as a most natural result, many In? quiries about Incubators and brooders have been made. The company is getting ready a large shipment for Havana, which will pos? sibly be gotten off In the next few days. .Horn Itenntnble llirycic* ?VIII no Sold i Ills Your More Hicycles will be sold this year than in '?S., the demand fof them being for business purposes rs a means of locomotion, as well as for pleasure.

Mori' Money .\ccitetl tu I*?y For Hronr.e Figures. The effort to raise funds for the pur? pose of erecting a monument to tiie memory of the Confederate soldiers and Bailors who died In the war between the States was Inaugurated in im'.s. Only a small amount was then raised by the "Norfolk Monumental Associa? tion." and the matter rested until 1SH0. when an appeal for funds was issued by the Plckett-Buchanan Camp and a canvass of the city was made from home to home. Only $1.000 was realized from this effort and nothing more was done until 1S92. An organized effort was then made to secure subscriptions under conditions set forth in an ear? nest appeal, from which the following is taken: EXTRACTS FROM APPEAL. "Nearly twenty-seven years have r< lie 1 around since the war between the States practically terminated with the surrender of Appomattox Court? house, by General Ruben E. Lee, or the Army of Northern Virginia?an army that was not then, nor ever, van? quished; but that. In obedience to the orders of Its trusted commander, laid down its arms and furled the standards never lowered in defeat. DO NOT DESIRE BITTERNESS. "With no desire to revive the recol? lection of any of the bitterness that characterized those days of strife, and yielding hearty acquiescence in the Until adjustment of the issues that pro? voked that conflict, we nevertheless recognise that the sacred duty devolves upi n us to testify .n some enduring way to the courage ami loyalty of the Con? federate soldiers and sailors slain in battle; to commemorate their heroic conduct in such manner as will incite our children's children to emulate their virtues; and to proclaim to the world and to ages yet unborn a country's grateful remembrance of those of her sens who sacrificed all in her defense. "It Is proposed by the committee having the matter in charge to make an earnest effort to secure the funds necessary to erect in our city a hand? some monument to the Confederate dead. The plan that seems to receive the greatest favor and to hold out the fairest promise of success,briefly staled, is as follow s: SUBSCRIPTIONS ASKED. "Subscriptions will be asked from all w'lm sympathize with the movement, payable in lour installments, one-fourth easli and one-fourth each in one, two and three years alter the date of sub? set iption. "Five trustees will be appointed by the Monument Committee, Into Whose keeping will be placed all money de? rived from such subscriptions and to w hom alone amounts so subscribed will be made payable; all moneys so re? el Ived by the said trustees shall be held in trust by them, with the under? standing and upon the condition that as soon as the total amount collected and subscribed! shall reach a sum suf? ficient to pay for a monument after such design as shall be submitted by the said Monument Committee and ap proved by a majority of the said trus? tees, or their successors, the funds then in hand and all unpaid subscrip? tions, as fast as realized on, will be turned over to the Monument Commit? tee lor the erection of the monument. "The committee indulges the hope that this plan will result in realizing the greater portion of what Is required to provide a suitable and creditable monument." This circular was signed by Colonel W. I I.Taylor, the chairman of the Com? mittee on Monument. THE RESPONSE NOT GENERAL. The response to this appeal was not at all general, and in the face of many1 disappointments the committee having the matter in charge persisted in their efforts along the lines designated. So? liciting contributions of any amount, and publishing from time to time the result of their labors, until May HGth, IS'-'T, when it was determined to aban? don the design contemplated originally and to erect such a monument as could he had for the amount in hand. As all subscriptions under the call made In 1892 were annulled by the fail? ure to raise the minimum amount then designated, it was necessary to obtain a renewal of these subscriptions under tile new conditions. SUBSCRIPTIONS NEW. ? Most "f those who had subscribed renewed their subscriptions in whole or In part, and in 1MIX the committee on monument, having secured about (13, 000, recommended to the Plckett-Bu chanan Camp that a monument should bo erected at once with the amount then available. A GRANITE SHAFT. It was determined to put all the mom y In a granite shaft, complete in itself, and yet designed for a heroic figure a'- Its summit nnd for four figures a'- its base. In this way a fanly respectable monument will be obtained and it is hoped by the com? mittee that in the early future enough in. n< y cat be raised to provide the bronze figures necessary to make the work artistically complete. Col. Walter II. Taylor is chairman of the Executive Committee if that body, which is composed of Capt. R. P. Loy all. Judge T. c. Garnett, Rev. rt. P. Tucker, Washington Taylor and W. H. Taylor. These gentlemen have Inbored In season and out of season for tlie success of their undertaking and the handsome m inument will be for them a Joy and a pride. FINANCIAL STATEMENT.

Tampa to Haiti more: the barkenttne Prtsclila, Captain Spr ngsteeh, Rio Jane.ro to Baltimore, and the British bark St. James, from Hong Kong to Baltimore. The latter may lo.i>l here. The American steamer S. T. Morgan, Captain Anthony, lowing a barge, came In yesterday morning. Stories of collision, of abandoned ves? sels, of lost anchors, of leakage result ing from being cut in by Ice, of drlft ing helplessly In the Ice pack, of freez? ing, starving and suffering from ex? haustion are coining In almost hourly, and the late storm will long be remem? bered by the suffering and loss ll has co used. WITHOUT FOOD OR FUEL Three men, who had neither food nor fuel for three days, were taken from a barge by Captain James Townscnd and Mr. Joseph Anderson, of Atlantic City Ward, yesterday. The barge was lying below Lambert's I'oint, and was stuck In the Ice, The men were em? ployed by the dredging company that ~7s deepening the h.irrmi. and .dipt on the barge. When taken from the barge they were In a deplorable condi? tion?weak from hunger, and numb from the cold. Captain Townscnd and Mr. Anderson brought the men ashore and gave them food, rtfter Which they were sent to Newport News to the dredging company. They were as hap? py as three larks when they saw rescue at hand, and said they would alwnya remember captain Townscnd and Mr. Anderson, who saved them from being starved or frozen to death. NOTING PROTEST. Yesterday three vessels' masters noted protest with Captain George F. Phillips and one with Major Hardy Hcndrcn, marine notaries. These were the masters of the barges Pactolus and Montana, and the schooners Oliver S. Barrett, and the Georgia Clark, each of which had his tale of woe to tell of Ice pack, rough weather, ?&e. The Oliver S. Barrett had shifted her cargo of ice, which had ground itself to pieces and was prac? tically adrift in the hold. The barges Pactolus and Montana had each been partially cut In. and had the caulking of their seams loosen? ed and were leaking, as was noted In yesterday's Issue. MAKING HAY. The harbor tugs are reaping a rich harvest In towing in distressed craft, one of them being r pu ted yesterday as netting $.1,545 for her day's work, while others ranged all the way from $450 upwards. The schooner Young Brothers, re? ported In yesterday's Issue as ashore off Boush Hiuff. was yesterday morning floated and towed to Lambert's Point by the tug Hercules, having sustained no serious damage. The schooner John K. Suchers, Bal? timore to Boston, was towed in by the Triton, as was also the Jennli K. Thomas. Savannah to Baltimore, both captains fearing that their vessels would be carried out to sea by the ice. A REASONABLE PEAR. That this was no foolish fear was show it yesterday by the numerous re ports of captain who had seen numbers small schooners and boats, abandoned arid helpless drifting with the ice out to sea, through the Capes. U la thought that most of these craft were caught by the storm and took refuge near shore, but were frozen in by the Ice and their crews, illy provisioned and without fuel, were forced to abandon them, which they did by walking ashore on the solid ice. Since then they have been unable to get to their vessels again and the ice pack lias swept them out. THE YACHT DIXIE.

TUGS TO Till: RESCUE. j It will bo remembered that Mrs. nixon and two children, a holy and ! gentleman guest are aboard the nixie and great fears are entertained by ail who know the region, that they have perished with cid ai l hunger.
