LEGAL DECISIONS. SUCCESPIO.N- TA.X—nfSllAM) ANH WIFE. Chief Justice AA'aite, .sitting as Circuit Judge for this circuit, has recentlj- decided the following; A husband purchased propertj- with his own means, and took title thereto in the nameof his wife, with an understanding between them, that she should make a will devising tbe propertj' to the husband in case be survived ber. Subsequentlj', and in Februarj', 1800, she died. Held, that not¬ withstanding the husband paid for the property and the nominal title onljr was in the wife, under tbe succession tax act of IStil the husband is bound to paj- tax upon the devolution of the title to bim. The fact that the will was made on account of an agreement to that elfect by the wife when she took title, rendered it none the less an instrument creating a beneficial interest in the husband on his death, and that, under the statute, is the succession to be taxed. noxn OF CO-l'AUTNEUS—AVHEX .lOI.NT AND SEVE- llAL. A., as suretj' for B., on an indebtedness to C. & Co., executed to the latter a bond and mort¬ gage on bis real propertj'. C. & Co., desiring to raise inonej' on the mortgage, gave an additional bond which was signed bj' the individual mem¬ bers of tbe firm, but not iu the firm name. A. failed to paj' the interest on the mortgage, as it matured, and the all'airs of tbe firm of C. & Co. were placed in the hands of a receiver. The property was foreclosed and a deficiency arose on the sale of tho s;iine which it was .sought to secure from the .assets of tbe tiriii of C. Se Co. The re¬ ceiver coiitestcil upon the ground that the bond was not signed in the lirm name, and tluit, there¬ fore, the assets of the lirm ought not to bo u.sed to pav the deficieiicj- judgment. The Court of Appeals adjudge that the bond, notwithstanding its form, having been exectitoti in the of the firm of C. Sc Co., and for the benefit thereof, must be regarded na a co- liarnership obligation and is pajabie out of the assets of the lirm. I'AUTXEUSinr—RIOIITS OF rART-VEILS ON DISSiV LUTIO.V. A. and B. entered into copartnership in a nior- cantile B. to furnish the cajiital and A. to give his skill and services in lieu of other capi¬ tal. The profits of the concern were to be divided equally between the copartner.*--. A. brou{;ht suit for a dissolution of the copart¬ nership, and for an accounting previous to the time agreeil upon for u dis.solut ion of the firm. The Superior Court bold, that A. has no interest in the stock, excepting so for as in the progre.?s of the business it might be converted into profits, and he is not entitled to an accounting ujion a basis of what profits might be realized on a sale of the stock on liiind at the time of a decree for dissolution. EFFECT OF fXI'EUFOKMED AGREEMENT TO LOAN ON HONI) AND .MORTGAGE. A. agreed to loan B. $1,0-22 on bond and mort" gnge. The loan was approved, and tbe bond and mortgage drawn; the latterof which was put upon record bj- the attoriiej- for A. A., however, re¬ fused to give the monej' on account jf a certain alleged cloud iijion the title. AA'berenpoii B. brought suit in assumpsit, to recover tbe ainouiit promised. The Marj'land Court of Appeals determine, that the action for the sum agreed to be loaneil could not be maintained, and stated that if aiij- action would lie it woiihl onlj' be an action for breach of contract in which the actual damages and not the stiiii agreed to be loaned was recover¬ able. EFFECT ON SL'RETV OF TAKING INTEREST I.V ADV.VNCE FOR A TIME nEYONO DATE OF MA- • TCRITV OF DERT. AVhere a wifo executed a mortgage and the husband joined in the bond as suretj'. and the niortgagoe accepted from the wife interest in ad¬ vance for a time bej-oiui that fixed by tbe bond for the payment of the debt. Held that such acceptance created an implied agreement to e.x- teiid t'jc time of iiayinent of the debt, and opera¬ ted to discbarge the suretj-. HEAL ESTATE MARKET.
