COURT DECISIONS. Notes of Cases Recently Decided, Which are of Interest to Our People. DIGESTED BY W. B. MARTIN. (Exclusively for . Virginian-Pilot) ;?:? ?? i PATTERSON V. CRAiWFORD. 1 Supreme Court of Appeals of Virginia, November 23f 1899. (WHERE THE PROCEEDS OP SA'XiE OP A DEBTOR'S LAND HAVE BEEN MISAPPROPRIATED OR LOST BY THE COURT'S COMMIS? SIONER, THE .LOSS FALLS ON THE CREDITORS IN T"lIB EN VERSED ORDER OF THE PRIOR? ITIES OF THEIR LIENS ON THE LAND. ' The only question to be decided In this case was, upon whom the loss re? sulting from the defalcation of a special commissioner, appointed by the court to sell lands of a debtor to pay certain debts secured by a'deed of trust, should fall.. The commissioner was dead and''his estate and sureties insol? vent, e The court says: It Is plain -that the debtor Is ab? solved from making good the loss, even If ho has the means of doing so. His lands were sold and the proceeds of sale of certain parcels thereof collected by the commissioner sudlcient Co pay the creditors, who by vlrture of their lien3 were entitled thereto. He has been deprived of his property for the express purpose of paying his creditors. The proceeds of sale were received by the representative of the court and lost ?without the fault of the debtor. His estate having once borne the burden, It cannot be made to do so again. He cannot be made to pay his debt twice. Nor can the loss be thrown upon the purchasers, whose money' was misap? propriated. They paid It as requested by the court and to the person appoint? ed by the court to collect It. It follows, therefore, that the floss must bo borne by the creditors. In? asmuch, however, as the debtor creat? ed preferences among his creditors, the manner in which the loss must be borne or upon which class of creditors It must fall Is a vital question and one of much practical Importance. ?Where property is subject to the pay? ment of liens thereon, tho liens are transfered from the property to the proceeds of sale, and In the adminis? tration thereof tho respective prlortics are duly preserved. The cost of con? verting property Into, money for the payment of the liens and the expense of administering the fund must be borne by the Honors In the inverse order of the priorities of their respec? tive liens, If the fund bo not suHVclerit to pay such cost and expense ns well as all the liens. This results nbces sarlly from the priority of one lion over another. And so, for the same reason, If the proceeds of sale of tho property, or of any part thereof, falls, from any cause, to be realised, or. after It has been collected by tho nlllcor or repre? sentative of the court. Is subsequently misappropriated by him or otherwise lost, the loss must be borne by the fund, and the liens suffer to that extent In tho order above slated. Reversed. KATES V. A. BAGGAGE & CAB CO. Supreme Court of G?orgia. July 21, 1S9U. A RAILROAD COMPANY MAY GRANT TO A PERSON OR COR? PORATION THE EXCLUSIVE RIGHT TO ENTER ITS TRAINS FOR THE PURPOSE OF SOLICIT? ING THE CARRYING OF PASSEN? GERS AND BAGGAGE, ANT) MAY RENT TO SUCH PERSON OR COMPANY A PART OF ITS BAG? GAGE-ROOM. This was an action to have declared Illegal certain contracts as to the use of the Union Passenger Sttitlon at Atlanta and for an Injunction to restrain cer? tain defendants from giving the cab company certain privileges denied to plaintiff. The lower court gave judg? ment for defendant and the plaintiff appealed. The court says: The evidnee was in direct conflict on many points. As to the truth of the allegations about which tha evidence is conflicting, It Is, so far as we are con? cerned, settled by the determination of the Judge; and the right of the petition? er to have the Judgment refusing the ??Injunction reversed must depend on the application of legal principles to such of theTallcgatlons ns nre not ennUsicd by evidence, nnd these arc: First, that the defendants permit the cab company to enter Its pa.ssengt-r trains before reach? ing the city, for the purpnse of solicit? ing baggage, and refuse the same priv? ilege to the petitioner; second, that the servants of the cab company arc al? lowed access to the passenger sratlon for the purpose of solic'tlng pat'onage, and for more conv.-nl ntly attending to Its business, and that this privilege is refused to petitioner; third, that the privilege of using nn onice" in the bag eage-room of the defendants for the transaction of Its business is granted to * the cab company arid re? fused to Kates; fourth, the pi ivilege oJ checking the baggage of prospective passengers at hotels and residences in advance of delivery of the baggage at the passenger station?each of which privileges is refused to petitioner. It cannot successfully be maintained that the grant of these privileges to the cab company Is fri violation of law, nor do the concessions, of themselves, create a monopoly, nor are they In any sense an interference with the right of the traveling public. On the contra? ry, it will be recognised that the exercise of the facilities named tend to the public con? venience, and the prompt nnd safe handling of. ths Tfnlfgpge of the passen? ger. Under no view of the'eas^ would ' the petitioner be entitled to the aid of the courts in restricting these conven? iences, and lessening the facilities for the safe and conven'ent handling of the effects of a pasesng:r. The law would hardly undertake to declare that a rail? road company should not, if it so de? sired, through Its representative, de? liver-, to one at r\Hs home in the city of Atlanta a cheek Insuring the delivery of his trunk In the city of Now York, for which, lie was bound, and subject the passenger to the Inconvenience of personally appearing at the bnggjge room, pointing out his trunk, and there receiving the railroad company's check. We know of no obligation which re? quires that a railroad company shall furnish such a facility, but certainly, there, can be no reason to forbid its do? ing so, If It will, and likewise, the priv? ilege afforded to an Incoming passen? ger before arrival to deliver.to a re? sponsible person the check for his bag? gage, with an obligation on the part of the latter to deliver the same at the residence or hotel of the passenger, In? fringes nobody's rights, but does pto m ts the convenience of the traveling public; and, rather than forbid, the law's administrators will encourage, such a facility. It is not the right of the plaintiff In error, by injunction or otherwise, to take away or disturb any reasonable means tending to promote the convenience aud comfort of the public. The merit of his complaint. If arty exists, must be found in the fact of the refusal of the defendants to grant to him the opportunities so to serve the public, and ther.by b:tterhls business. Whether the refusal so to do Is proper or unlawful does not depend upon the favor or Inclination, of the railroad company, but upon the defend? ant's right. In the very nature of things, it would be Impossible for a railr.-ad company to permit the agents of all bnggaga or express companies to enter its trains to solicit the transpor? tation of bagga.no, and yet, because of such Impossibility, it would hardly be fair to the traveling public to refuse to permit the agent of any to do so. In the case of Jencks v. Coleman It was held that the admltsion of one of such agents to the exclusion of others, if rea? sonable and In good faith, was legal. That the railroad companies allowed one of the transportation compares to fit up an office in its baggagc-room, and tc pjy its business from tlure, certain? ly worked no detriment to the conven? ience of the public. It is impracticable that all persons doing such business should have on office In the building, but that, they could not affords no reason wlpr otic should not be. permit? ted to do so, and, while promoting Its own business, subserve at the same time the public convenience. Certainly the traveling public Is kenefitted by a facility which enables trunks to be checked at hotels and residences. These cheeks becomes tokens, of a contract between the railroad company and the prospective pnssnger for the transpor tat on nf the baggage r.f the latter. The person delivering such checks Is In law nnd In fact the agent of the railr.:ad company, and wc kndw of no provision of law which restrains a common car? rier from delivering checks for baggage at hotels, rcsllenccs, or elsewhere. Cer? tainly the carrier must have the right to select his own agents and instru? ments for the execution of his con? tracts. -Aflirmed. HOO-HOOS INITIATE. ORDER OF TH PI BLACK CAT EN? JOY ENTERTAINMENT. The Concatenated Order of Hoo-Hoo (alias the Black Cat) held a special and Important session at their lodge room, In the Academy of Music building last night ami initiated several new members, who "stepped up" in brave fashion during their march with the grand Inquisitors.

' The occasion was greatly enjoyed. The Hoo-Hoos nre gaining great strength In this sec? tion, and the Grand Chancellor is say? ing good things of Norfolk. LAMBERT'S POINT.
