(Exclusively for Vlrglnlan-Pllot.) SPENCER'S ADMK. V. FIELD & GRAY. .Supreme Court <>f Appeals of Virginia. March 30, 1809. WHERE the PLAINTIFF IX AS SUMPSIT has FILED AN AFFI? DAVIT with his DECLARATION. NO PLEA IN hau can BE RE? CEIVED UNLESS ACCOMPANIED BY an affidavit DENYING THE CLAIM, as REQUIRED BY code SECTION 3280. THE PLAINTIFF MAY WAIVE THIS REQUIREMENT, BUT ALLOWING SIM I LA 11 PLEAS TO THOSE OF? FERED TO 1510 FILED WITHOUT OBJECTION, OR FILING A RE? PLICATION TO THE PLEAS AFTER HIS OBJECTION IS OVER? RULED IS NoT SUCH WAIVER. The COUrt says: Hy section :>-M? of the Cocl.. it is pro? vided that. "Iii an action of nssumpslt on u contract, express or Implied, for tin.* payment of money (except where the process to answer the action lias been served by publication), if 'he plaintiff file with Iiis declaration an ailtdavlt mudc by himself or his agent, stating therein, to the host of the aflinnl's belief the amount of the plain? tiff's claim, that such amount is justly din-, und the time from which the plain? tiff claims Interest, no plea in bar shall be received in the case, either nt rules <>r in court, unless tho defendant Hie with his ulea the affidavit of himself or bis ngent, thai the plaintiff Is not entitled, as the nlllnni verily believes, tci recover anything from the defendant mi such claim, or stating a sum certain less than, that set forth In the affidavit filed by the plnintlff, which, as the afliunt verily believes, is all that the plaintiff is entitled to recover from the defendant on such claim." The plaintiff tiled with his declara? tion, which contained the common counts in nssumpslt, his own afllduvtt in which he stated to the best of his belief the nmourtft of bis claim, the time from which it bore interest, ami that it was justly due. This rendered It necessary for the defendants to lllo with the picas ottered by them the affidavit required by the statute. Without the aflldavlt, unless il was waived by the plaintiff, til - court hud no right to re? ceive the pleas. To do so was in plain violation .if the express provisions of tho statute. There is no such affidavit in the record, nor Is4here any presump? tion that it was filed with the pleas, as tho defendants insist. Tho affidavit tiled with the declaration is in the re? cord. If there had been an affidavit Hied with the pi-as the presumption is that it. too, would be In the record; thr? illing of the pleas was Objected to and bills of exception tnken at tho time in which the pleas are set out. Neither does the record show, as is contended, I hail the filing of the aflldavlt was waiv? ed. Notwithstanding the express pro? vision of the statute that ho plea in a rase like this can bo received by the court unless accompanied by affidavit, tho Plaintiffs bad the rlghl to waive it. the requirement of the statute being solely for the bencllt of plaintiffs and In order to prevent them from being de? layed in their suits by dilatory pleas. Lewis v. I licks, in! Va. ?. HI Is true that the defendants filed their several pleas without affidavits while tho cause was pending In the Cir? cuit Court of Aibcmarle county and that the plaintiff replied to these pleas without objection. If the case had been ?tried on those pleas the plaintiff would be held to have waived the affidavits. But these pleas were withdrawn by leave of the court nnd new >?lcns offer i d. These in w pleas Were subject to all proper object! >ns, and the plaintiffs right tu object to them was not waived nor lust because be had permitted simi? lar Pleas to be (lied without objection, nor by his Illing a replication to the foinl pleas after his objection to thorn had been overruled". Reversed. CITY OF GROESBECK V. PIXSON. Court of Civil Appeal? of Texas. March 11, 1899. A PERSON EMPLOYED BY THE DAY TO DO A PIECE OF WORK. AND ALLOWED TO ADOPT IIIS OWN METHODS IN DOING IT.? THE EMPLOYER PAYING THE EXPENSES INCURRED, AND LOOKING TO HIM FOR RESULTS ONLY,?IS AN INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR. This was a suit against the city for damages sustained by plaintiff while engaged as a workman upon an exca? vation for a reservoir for sa-id city. The plaintiff was employed by one VVhlttlngton, who was doing the work for the city. The lower court gave Judgment for plaintiff and the city ap? pealed. The coin t says: The testimony is undisputed, n is shown by the evidence that the city cm ployed Whlttington to complete the en? tire Job, and left It entirely to him, and to his judgment, as to how the work should be done. He was to adopt his own methods In performing the work; neither the city nor Its otllcers reserv? ing the right to make any suggestions us to how It should be done. He hired all the hands and teams, and kept an account of the expenses, and when the Job was completed the city paid all the expenses, and paid Whlttington so much per day for each day he was en? gaged on the Job. It is contended that because Whlttington was paid by the day this destroys his character as an Indc] endent contracior. It has been held that the fact that a contractor Is paid by the day does not necessarily destroy the independent character of his em? ployment. If Whlttington, In the course of his occupation, represented the will of the city only as to the result of the work, and not as to the means by which he performed it. he was an independent contractor. The contract, as shown by the record, under which Whl Hingt on engaged to complete the -work, left the city with? out the right to direct how the work should be done, or what means should be used in performing it. It may bo that the terms of Whittington's con? tract with the city was not fully de? veloped In the trial court. As shown by the record on this appeal, the evi? dence was Insufficient to support a Judgment against the city of Groesbeck. This holding makes It unnecessary to discuss the other assignments of error. Reversed. HE NEEDED PRAYERS According to Commissioner's Re? port in Urso Case. The Professor KnM Ho Left Ills Wire ISecmmo Ntio Tnlltctl Rollclou to Htm?Mnsle Instrumenta ns Ornn mcuts-Otbcr t'onrt Itlnltors. Mr. Robert W. Shultlce. special com? missioner in chancery to determine the ' amount of alimony to be paid in the case of Mrs. Clara Urso, of Washing? ton, D. C, by her husband. Professor F. A. Urso, of this city, filed his re? port |n the Court of Law and Chancery yesterday and Judge Martin issued a decree in accordance therewith. The court's decree requires Professor 1'rso i to pay $20 each mouth as alimony to his ! divorced wife. The report of Commissioner Shultice in the alimony case is interesting. The ' commissioner states that Professor Urso's earning capacity was from $60 to $M) a month. The report further contains the following rich matters: "He claimed that he earned less money row because people here take less Interest than formerly In music. Ho admitted, however, that the num t her of music Instruments now In use is I greatly in excess of former years. From this it v/ould si cm that people must now pun hase Instruments for show and j not for use. ? * ? Jie Rave no reason I for having his wife, except the great anxiety she manifested about the sal? vation of bin soil, and repeatedly slated it as his chief grievance, indeed as his only grievance, that she talked religion to him; yet from his letter dated Au? gust 20, 3S*C. he seems to be a very proper object for the prayers of a good wife." CASKS TRIED. Tn the Court of Law and Chancery tho ease of Dr. C. D. J. Macdonnld against the Southern Bell Telephone Company was heard. A judgment for $?00 was rendered for the plaintiff. The eases of James F. Milleken vs. Frank Tannehill. Jr., Milleken ,<k Gas ton vs. the same were dismissed. THE CORPORATION' COURT. Elizabeth Frances Charters qualified in the Corporation Court as adminis? tratrix of the estate of Dr. C. L. char? ters, under a bond Of $100, With S. W, West as surety. PROPERTY TRANSFERS. Deeds were recorded making tho fol? lowing transfers of property: From W. T.

Tho Colony ?nmben ?vor 30O, Wli?> i.ivo l'p to Moclnllstlo Principle* n? Taught by John Itualilu mill l iluiii ?I Bellamy. Tho Ruskin colony of West Tonnes sec. that band ot men and women who are endeavoring to make a practical demonstration to :h ! world of the feasi? bility of the principles ot co-operation as applied to industrial and social life? in other words, of the principles Of so? cialism, will very probably remove to this section. This colon> ol Kuskin, so called after the great teacher of social? ism, .lohn Ruskin, has existed in Dick son county. Tennessee, sine.- 1S9I. It now numbers about ".'>0 souls. Though for a long lime i; looked as If the colony would prospi r In its cho? sen home among the rolling hilts and low mountains of west Tennessee, there came too late the realization that it was planted too far out of reach of the marts of trade. The dream of these thinkers after the Edward Bellamy type was not realized in the young colony. There came not Chaos and dis? satisfaction, as had been predicted, but mere physical laws, having naught to do with the economic principles of, the Ruskinites, decreed that the colony could hot tlourish. A receiver will to-morrow at public auction begin to sell the lands, manu? factories ami other property of the Rus? kin Co-operative Association, and with? in a few weeks these colonists will set up another colony and begin an. w i their self-given task to prove true the doctrines of Kuskin. Their new field of endeavor will, as stated, be near Norfolk. THE QUESTION OF SITE. j Tho colonists have under considera? tion four sites in this section, viz: <>n Chuckatuck creek, in Nansemond coun i ty: on the Virginia const, near Lynu haven; on the James river, and on the Peninsula. The tirst mentioned site, about twen? ty miles from Norfolk, is more favora? bly regarded, and a Vlrglnian-Pilot re- i porter w ho called on Mr. A. Jeffers, Im? migration agent, learned yesterday that i It was very probable that the colony , would re-establish itself there. Sites in Georgia and other Southern States have been offered to the colonists, but for various reasons Norfolk Is preferred. Among these reasons are the excellent and cheap transportation facilities, the productive soil, the good climate, and cheap steam coal. The colonists reallzi that in this section they can easily and cheaply get their manufactured and ag? ricultural products to tho best mar? kets. It was the opposite conditions at Ruskin, which caused the failure of the colony there. WHO CONSTITUTE THE COLONY. The men who make up the population of the little colony of Ruskin are hot of the uneducated and harum-scarum class of socialists. They are thinking men, .and men of education. Among the tirst of the institutions to be found? ed in the colony was a public library, which now contains 1.700 volumes. A well-edited and live weekly paper, call? ed "The Coming Nation." has been published there since the inelpleney of the colony. An industrial community almost per? fect In tho theory of Its workings has been established. Every thing seems to be organized on the economic basis upon which Bellamy founded his fa? mous novel. "Looking liaekwnrd." Even to the public eating-house, there is a Bellamy taint to Ihe order of the Community. Nothing is owned by indi? viduals, save only necessary persona! property; everything else is held in common. The men and women, who work at different pursuits, are all paid the same, not in money, but in checks, good for a stated amount at the public storehouse. In short the co-operative plan Is carried out completely, though, of course In its. dealing with the out? side world the colony has to meet with the conditions of the former. Wi IMEN'S RIGHTS. In the election of i.tlio. iv. for Hie col ? ony women who are shareholders in the CO-Operatlve association, have a vole the same as the men. A share in the association costs 1600 ami was formerly payable on the installment plan, but is now required to be paid in cash. No one can become a member ot* the colony un? til this is paid. INI) l IST 111 ES ESTABLISH ED. Besides its large farm covering hun? dreds of acres of ground in Dlckson county, near Tennessee City, tin1 colo? ny has established the following indus? tries: A job printing and book binding establishment, a grist mill, saw mill, 1 blacksmith shop, photograph gallery, steam laundry, telephone system, storehouse, planing mill, shoe shoo, drug store, boiler shop, suspender man? ufactory, library, tailor shop, cabinet shop, and a cereal coffee manufactory. THE FAITHFUL. Of the members of the colony r.n still have deb rmlried faith in the principles of their co-operative system and will come to Virginia to start the new col? ony. Great interest luis been manifested In this colony all over the country, and its removal to Virginia anil start on a new life w<ll be closely watched.
