DIGESTED BY W- B- MARTIN, (Exclusively fop Virginian-Pilot.) H?GE & HUTCHINSON V. TURNER. Supreme Court of Appeals of Virginia, January 12, lSU'J. A WIFE CANNOT TESTIFY IN A SUIT TO WHICH HER HUSBAND is A PARTY, if IT IS A PROCEED? ING BY A CREDITOR TO IM? PEACH A CONVEYANCE, GIFT OR BALE FROM ONE TO THE OTHER ON THE GROUND <>K FRAUD OR WANT OF CONSIDERATION. IF A PARTY TRANSACT BUSINESS AS AN AGENT WITHOUT FOL? LOW I.NC. THE DIRECTIONS OF PARAGRAPH 2>.77 OF THE CODE, ALL THE PROPERTY ACQUIRED OR USED IN SUCH BUSINESS IS LIABLE FOR HIS DEBTS.WHETH ER CONTRACTED in THAT BUSI? NESS OR NOT. AND THIS IS so ALTHOUGH Tili': C II 13 D IT ok KNOWS WHO is iiis PRINCIPAL. The fans are BUlllclcntly sot forth in the opinion of Hie court. The Court Bay s: By the common law husband and wife are incompetent to testify for or against each other. It lias been held time and again by this court that in a suit in equity to impeach a convey? ance from a husband to bis wife for fraud, neither thf husband nor the wife la competent t<> testify, upon the ground that both are directly Intercsl cil in the result of the suit. Upon the same principle both husband and wife are equally Incompetent Iii a unit oh ah Indemnifying bond by the wife, where the creditor has elected lo proceed at law. It is tnie that to the suit In equity both would be parties, while in the suit upon the Indemnifying bond the wife Is alone a party to the record, but the matter in controversy, the al? leged fraudulent transfer, is as milch an issue in the one- ease as in tile Other, Tim lundond, xliuau-ij_not n party tu the record, is directly Interested in the result of the suit, and this is stllliclcnt to disqualify the wife as a witness. Mrs. I towel s, in tiie case at bar. would not be incompetent to testify by reas? on of her own Interest. A wife is com? petent to testify wlicro tile cause is her own, and her husband lias n ? in? terest in the result of the suit, although he is a party to the record, if only n nominal party. It was not the Inter? est of Mrs. Bowers that rendered her Incompetent to testify, but the Intengst of her husband, lie had an Interest ui rectly Involved in the suit, which, at common law, would have rendered him incompetent to testify, and his wife, because of the interest that at com? mon law would have excluded him, WBS also Incompetent. The recent acts nnssed by the Gene? ral Assembly removing the Incom peloncy of husband nnd wife to testify for or against each other expressly re? tain ih.. prohibition against competency "in any proceeding by u creditor to avoid or Impeach any conveyance. ?-irt or snle from the one to the other on the ground of fraud or want of consid? eration, and expressly preserve the rules of evidence at common law in cases of that nature. The Circuit Court restricted the testimony of Mrs. Bowers to the issues In the cause other than that of fraud. But it was decided by this court In Stcptoe v. Read, 19 Grat. 1, that if u witness is competent to give evidence nt all he may be exam? ined up.in any matter in the record and Is hot competent for one purpose only. We are. therefore, of opinion that the court erred in admitting Mrs. Lowers to testify at alt in this case. The main question in this case is the proper con? struction <>f section 2S77 of the Code. Tin? purpose Of the Legislature In en? acting tit., statute was to prevent per? sons carrying ?ui business under false or fictitious names and firms, The language of the statute Is plain, ex? plicit and imperative. H leaves no room for exception or qualification, if any Person, as Is nllcgetl in this case, transact business ns a trader in his own name with the addition of the word ".ii;. nt." or in bis own name without stich addition, and fail to comply with the provisions of tile statute, it makes nil the property, stock mid clioifrs in netioii acquired or used in such busi? ness absolutely liable for his debts, whether contracted in tin particular business or not, and without regard to knowledge by the creditor of the prin? cipal, if principal there bo. Knowlc ige. or want of knowledge, plays no part In the application of the statute. That is an Immaterial matter. The only question.is whether the person was doing business as a trader within the meaning of the statute and has com? plied oir fai!c<i to comply with its posi? tive requirements. The only case which has been brought to our atten? tion, or which we have been able to Und, in which this court has placed a different (?.'instruction upon the statute from the one we have given It, is that of Trevilian v. Powell, in the several other cases, in which the statute has been under consideration by this court, no such construction is advanced as was given in Hint ease. * * ? Under these circumstances wo do not fed called uoon to consider ourselves as Inmitd by that case, especially as we are all .>f opinion that the statute should ice Ivo a different construction, and a Construction so far as our ex? perience goes, that has uniformly been given it by the lower courts of the (Commonwealth. Reversed. BARTLETT V. TOWN OF CLARKS BUR< i. Supreme Court of Appeals West Vir? ginia. November 30, ptfiS. an INCORPORATED Town 1* not LIABLE FOR PERSONAL INJUr RIES CAUSED BY THE FIR ING OF FIREWORKS and FIREARMS <>n THE STREETS BY a CROWD, ALTHOUGH DONE WITH Till: KNOWLEDGE a no CONSENT OF THE COUNCIL and OFFICERS. SUCH Town IS NOT LIABLE Foil Till-: NEGLIGENCE <>F its OFFI? CERS, on AGENTS, as To po-W ERS and FUNCTIONS OF a PUB LIC GOVERNMENTAL CHARAC? TER. R. lt. Hartlott brought hi.-? action to recover damage's against the town of Clarksburg for perscaal injuries ssus talned by plaintiff by reason of the discharge by private persons of fire? arms, squibs, rockets, and fireworks at a narrow place in one of the streets of said town, on the ground that the said fireworks were discharged by the consent and written permission of the Mayor, and with the knowledge and ci nsent of the Couhcll and police and ctii. r officers of said town, and that the said discharge of firearms, fireworks, etc., was of such a nature as to be a public, nuisance, whereby tho team of horses of plaintiff attached to his bug? gy became frightened and unmanagea? ble .and beyond the control of plaintiff, and ran away, throwing plaintiff from his buggy seat, and badly injuring him, t>>r which injuries plaintiff alleges said town Is liable t.> him for damages. De? fendant demurred to the declaration. The court sustained said demurrer and gave Judgment for defendant and plaintiff appealed. The Court says: No ground <>c demurrer is contended for, except that the town is not liable, and that an action cannot be maintain? ed against the town for the wrong com? plained of. in speir v. city of Brooklyn the Judge says: "It is the settled doc? trine of tip- courts that n municipality Is not bound merely by the assent of Its executive officers to wrongful acts of third persons; nor .could the Mayor bind til" clty by a permit for tho grant? ing of which he has no color of author? ity from tlie common council, and with h was not within the general scope of his authority." The case of Spetr v. City of Brooklyn is supported by some other authorities; and I con? fess I am largely in sympathy with the decision in that case, and agree with Judge Okey as to the nuisance in the case of Robinson v. Greenville, 42 Ohio St. 630, where he says: "That Ill ing of cannon in n public street of a munici? pal corporation, except in case of Im? perative and urgent necessity, is an In? tolerable nuisance, and that all persons ? ngaged in such unlawful act are per? sonally liable for all damages caused th r. by. are propositions concerning which there is no room for difference of opinion. But n very different question is presented when it Is attempted to fasten liability for such injuries on a municipal corporation." In the case at bar the acts complain? ed of are equally as great a nuisance as the firing of cannon, as stated in above i case. Appellee contends that "the law In this State has been settled in at ! least two cases upon all fours with this case." [The court there quotes a number of cases holding that a municipality is not liable in such cases, and concludes.] Authorities might be multiplied in dellnltely. While the decisions are not all on one side, yet the great weight of the authorities, including those of our own state, is with the action of the Circuit Court in this case. In Brown's Administrator v. Town of <Invalidate. HI \V. Va. 200. It Is held that, "as to tho powers and functions of a town of a puhlic governmental character, It 1? not liable for damages caused by the wrongful acts or negli? gence of Its.officers or agents therein." The judgment will have to be affirmed. rask on it rum f.i.Kcrnn. NORFOLK RANK OF SAVINGS AND TRUSTS CHOOSES NEW CASHIER.

Scheme Proposed to Accomplish That End, Triiclirr? Thlnti Thai .'Money l?orlvo?l I I ..nt Lease "I Kerry Mionid He Applied i? I'tirrhnso of Toll Komis.) A real estate dealer said to a re? ported of the Vlrginihn-l'llot a few days ago that he thought a scheme to get rid of the toll gates Just outside of the corporate limits of Norfolk would be a step along the road of progress, far In advance of any project that the most Ingenious inventor could devise He said that not long since a gentleman from the West was in Norfolk looking for a farm. He had the money lit his pocket to pay for a tract of land, and he (the real estate dealer) thought a nice little truck farm a few miles from Norfolk would suit him. TUB TAX Tot? HIGH The Western customer was taken out to the county in a buggy and a mile and a half from the city they came to a toll gate. He paid the toll and drove through the gate, and had gone a short distance when the West rn man said: "Hold a minute; is this the only route from Nerf.dk to the farm?" "Yes, sir; this is the only road." was the reply. "Well, I don't want to buy. 1 have calculated thai the amount that I will pay in lolls will bo about six per cent, per annum oh the cost of the farm. No business can stand that tax and 1 will have lo look elsewhere." iteing told that it was almost Impos? sible to get oul of Norfolk without go? ing through a toll gate, the man said he would buy a farm In some other sec? tion of the State, and he did. MANY BUCH INSTANCES. The Ylrglnlnn-rilot is informed that the case mentioned above is only one of many such, und that the toll gates are regardecr as a si rlous hlnderance to the development of the land Within a radius of ten miles of Norfolk. It is said that the truckers of this section pay on nn average of $2eo per -year,?XU*?Virgin-Urn.!':! it?doott?tail., kill w whether this is true or not, but this is the statement of a gentleman who claims to bo posted. THE UEMEDY. Some of tho prominent truckers of Norfolk County think they have n remedy, providejl the powers that be can be hrojght to h like mind. They will ask tho supervisors of Norfolk county, it is said, to appropriate the money received each year from the rent of the Norfolk and Portsmouth ferries to the purchase of toll roads, and It is claimed if this plan is adopted that in live rears there will not be a toll gute left. WILL ENHANCE VALUES. It is contended that the abolition of the toll ga'o s will enhance the value of tho r. al estate along the improved roods, which means Increased taxes, and that in a few years all the money paid out for these properties will lind Its way back into the county treasury. ?The gentlemen who advocate this scheme nr.' the opinion that the county can well nfford to make the purchase. They do not propose that th" county shall assume any addi? tional responsibility, but that the money received because of the higher price paid for the feit :, s shall be ap? plied in th.- purchase ..1' mil roads.
