THAT THE LATTER SHOULD BUY

A ME IMC AN Fl KM AFTER THE

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?

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
The court nays: Whatever may have

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.

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

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
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 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?
"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
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
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
