COURT DECISIONS. lotes of Cases Recently Decided, Which are of Interest to Our People. DIGESTED BY ? B- MARTIN. (Exclusively for Vlrglnlan-PHot.) BROWN V. MORISEY. Supreme Court of North Carolina, March 28, 1899. ADVERSE) POSSESSION WILL. RUN AGAINST A WIDOW'S RIGHT TO DOWER. WHERE THE PERSON IN POSSESSION CLAIMS ADVERSE TO, AND NOT UNDER, HER HUS? BAND. SOLE POSSESSION AND ENJOY? MENT OF LAND FOR THE STATU? TORY PERIOD CONSTITUTES AD? VERSE POSSESSION. This was an action by plaintiff to lave her dower allotted to her. There Judgment for defendant and lalntlft appealed. The facts sufllclent |]y appear In the opinion of tho court. The court says: This Is a proceeding for dower, and ?defendant denies plaintiff's right, al? leges title In himself, and pleads ad? verse possession, lapse of time, Btatutc lof limitations, and release. Upon the Itrlal the plaintiff showed that she was Inarrled to George Brown In 1854; a d;ed |to him, "dated In September, 1854, con Iveying the land in controversy to him In fee simple; that he entered upon said lland, and built a house, and cleared and titivated a part of the land, and that she and her said husband lived on It for more than a year, when they left the land, and her husband left the State, and died In 1SG0 or 1861; that, soon after plaintiff and her husband left tho land, tho defendant entered, and has lived there ever since, clearing, cul? tivating, and using the land ns his own. The defendant offered no deed or other written evidence of title, but re? lied on his long-continued possession, which, he contends, gives him a title In fee simple to the land. When the plaintiff showed her marriage, a deed In feo simple to her husband, and his death, this gave her prlmn facie a right to dower. And she contends that de? fendant has shown nothing that rebuts this presumption or prlma facie right to dower; that he has shown nothing but his long-continued possession, and this Is no bar to her right to dower; that the lapse of time and the statute of limitations does net run against a right of dower.?citing Spencer v. Western's Heirs. IS N. C. 213, and Camp hell v. Murphy, 65 N. C. 357. This doc? trine Is announced In these cases, and Is a correct application of the law to them, but, as we think. It would not be to this case. In those cases the de? fendants claimed title under the hus hand. In this case, tho defendant does not claim under the husband, but ad? verse to his title. Where the defend? ants claim under the husband (ns heirs or assignees), they cannot dispute the title of the husband, as they claim un? der him. And while the widow does not claim dower under the husband, she claims It under the same title that the heirs nnd assignees claim, by force ana operation of the law of dower. Upon her marriage she acquired an Inchoate right of dower, which the husband could not destroy or defeat. Upon the death of the husband this inchoate right becomes a right consummate, but sho has no estate until dower Is assign? ed; nnd when this Is done she acquires no new estate, but only the possession and enjoyment of the Inchoate right she acquired by reason of her marriage, ripened Into an estate. Her dower right, and her dower when assigned, are a prolongation of her husband's estate In her for the term of her life. Norwood v. Marrow, 20 N. C. 448. The estate de? scends to the heir subject to this Incum brnnce, and, as he taken it subject to this incumbrancc, he cannot hold or claim the estate adversely thereto; and, as ho cannot hold adversely to the right of dower when he holds nnd claims the estate under the same title that the widow claims dower, the statute does not run. It is the same as. a grant In fee simple, reserving a life estate; and, ns the grantee holds his estate under the grantor, he cannot claim to hold adversely to the estate re? served, and the statute of limitations does not run. But this doctrine does not obtain In this case, where the de? fendant does not claim under the hus I band as heir or a-' ;nice, but claims to hold adversely plaintiff, and b see no reason v If the defendan: a title pnrnmou;. e husband of the amount title. We may not do this, a deed conveying that of the hus? band of the plaintiff, it is admitted that this would defeat her right of dower. [ Bo, If he had shown a deed from a j stranger, and an adverse possession thereunder since he went Into posses? sion, It would have ripened Into a per i feet title as against the husband. If he Were living. And so would a continued I adverse possession, without color of ti? tle, from 1857 or 1858 until the com jfhencement of this action. In 1890, have ripened Into a perfect title ngalnst the I husband. And there being no reason, that we see, why the lapse of time and the statute of limitation should not I count against the husband (the defend jant not holdlt.g i r>der him), and the plaintiff's right tinuatlon of the see no reason barred. She cai er unless her h of the lard, ar.i ferse is that, thoi was never the ce as the defendant himself. It must wer being a con sband's estate, we she is not also be entitled to dow ud was the owner e theory of the de Bh he had a deed, he r.er of the land; and has shown title in be h?\t\ to be para? mount to that of the husband. It was said on the argument that, while the case showed that th,-> defendant had boon In possessli n nil this time, cut? ting, clearing, and cultivating the Und as his own, it was not shown that he. held adversely. This, It seems to us, is the very strongest evidence that he was holding It adversely. But the fact It takes sv) roses to make a teaspoon > ful of perfunio. It takes the br;st quality of white corn, rye and barley malt to produce the' Q O. Taylor Whiskey; more than that. It takes seven years of actual age, ripening in barrels?no mythical methods of aging, but nature's summer beat and winter's cold. It Isn't possible to make wh skey old in a day, a month or a year.

KUAPP, S. & C. CO. V. M'CAFFRBY. Supreme Court of Illinois. February 17, 1S99. A STEAMBOAT OWNER ENGAGED IN TOWING IS NOT A COMMON CARRIER. ONE TOWING A RAFT HAS A COM? MON LAW BAIL-EE'S LIEN ON IT WHILE IN HIS POSSESSION. EQUITY WILL ENFORCE THE TOWAGE LIEN ALTHOUGH RE? LIEVE MAY BE HAD IN ADMI? RALTY. This was a bill to enforce a bailee's lien on half of a raft of lumber for tow? age of the raft. While the raft was on the way plaintiff, by direction of de? fendant, left half of It in Boston Bay for the winter, and brought on the other half to St. Louis. Defendant paid clerk of the boat at St. Louis $1,250. without any directions as to its applications, and plaintiff applied It on the amount due him for towage rf other rafts. The defendant sold the half of raft at Bos? ton Bay to another party which threat? ened to take possession of it, and this g.ltt was biought. The lowjr court de? creed for p'ainllff and defendant ap? pealed. The court says: Tho first question Is whether Mc? Caffrey had a lien on the raft for his towing charges while the raft was In his possession. He had no lien by con? tract, for that Instrument gave him none. A common carrier has, at com? mon law, a specific lien upon the goods carried for the charges of transporting them, but the weight of authority is that the owner >f a steamboat engaged lti the business of towing is not a com? mon carrier: and much more Is this so where, as here, he tows only for a single party. Tho carrier of goods has a lien thereon for his hire while he re? tains possession. This lien extends to all the goods delivered under one con? tract, although they be delivered in different parcels and at different times; and the bailee may detain any portion of them as a lien upon the whole, even If he has delivered a part. Up to the time the whole raft reached Boston Bay. McCaffrey had a lien on each piece or parcel of lumber therein for the carriage of the entire raft. Tho company could not change or defeat that lien by directing him to divide the raft and bring half to St. Louis first. That direction was solely for his ben? efit. McCaffrey was ready and willing, and offered, to tow the half raft to St. Louis; but was refused permission, and his right to do so was denied by the purchaser. This excused, and, indeed, prevented his further performance. Therefore McCaffrey had a common law bailee's Hen on said half raft In his possession at Boston Bay, for the tow? ing of the entire raft at tho contract price. We are of opinion that under all the circumstances it was proper for him to resort to a court of equity, and bring all parties In Interest before the court, to have the question of his pos? session and lien, and the validity of the sale determined by a decree binding upon all. It Is said the court had no jurisdic? tion, because this was a maritime lien, and exclusive Jurisdiction In such case 1h by act of Congress vested in the courts of the United States sitting in admiralty. Perhaps the sounder argu? ment supports the position that such a raft on a navigable river is a proper subject of admiralty Jurisdiction, but where the question Is left In so much doubt by the conflicting decisions of the various courts of admiralty, and the opposite view Is supported by so strong authority as Chief Justice Toney nnd Justice Drier, of the United States Su? preme Court, the State Courts should hesitate to renounce Jurisdiction In a case like this, where no proceeding af i feeling the rights of the parties has ever beep Instituted In any court of admiralty. We cannot hold that, be? cause a proceeding against the raft in admiralty might ufford some relief, therefore a court of equity must keep its hands off, if equitable circumstances exist which Justify Its granting relief, on well established equitable principles against persons made defendants. By the action of the Knapp Company the raft was wltndrawn from the suit, and a suit relative to liability upon a per? sonal obligation was substituted there? for. The suit as so changed was not within the jurisdiction of a court of ad? miralty. Judgment affirmed. BRAHBLETON WARD. Mr. and Mrs. George W.
