The Supreme Court of Connecticut has decided the following question : A hiLsband is life tenant of certain land and the wife the owner of the fee thereof, and both live together in a dwelling house which is erected upon the land. The husband employed certain builders to erect two additional buildings of wood on a stone foundation upon the land. The wife knew that the materials were being furnished and the work done, and made no objection thereto. Upon failure of the husband to pay the contract price lor the same, the buildei-s filed a lien against tho property. The court hold, that tho fee of tbe wife could not be holden for tho work. As a pre-requisite to the lien she should hei-self.eitber have made the contract, or have consented to tbe performance of the work, after niformation from the builders that it was not to be done upon the pei^sonal credit of the husband, but upon tho credit of her fee, and that this last would be subject to a lien, in default of payment. It may be assumed that the structure erected upon the land would add to the profit of the life use, and it is therefore to be presumed that the husband was acting solely lor himself and for the benelit of bis particular estate, unless it can be shown that the husband was act¬ ing in fact as the agent for bis wife. Tbe fact that she witnes.sed the execution of tbe work and her making no objection thereto a,ssent- ed to its being done, does not an implied promise on her part to pay for the .same. (JAS KI.XTUUES A.\D HEATER DO NOT PASS WITH HOU.SE. The Supreme Court of Peini.sylvania has de¬ cided that upon the sale of a the gas iix- tures and heater therein, though appurtenant thereto, are to be deemed personal property, and do not pa-ss to a purchaser of the property. It may be shown, however, by p-iro! proof, that pursuant to a collateral agreement between the seller and purchaser, tbe gas fixtures and beater were to pass with the bouse; and this is so not¬ withstanding the fact that tbe contract for the sale of the .same was in writing. It l.t:, therefore, advisable in all contracts for the sjile and pur¬ chase of real property to specify what lixtures or other appurtenances not necessarily realtv are intended to he included in the contract. AUCHITECT AXn BUILDER. Tbe Court of Common Pleas of England has decided the following: The plaintiff was employed to build for a com¬ pany a certain hall, and the defendant was tbe architect thereof, named in the building contract. The action was brought by the builder against tbe architect for not using duo care and skill in ascertaining the amounts to ba paid to :lie build¬ er under tlie contract, which provided, that he was to be paid upon tlio certificato of the archi¬ tect. The contract authorized the architect to order additions or deductions, and bound the builder and tho employing company to leave all disputes to tbo architect for decision, and .such decision to be final and conclusive upon the par¬ ties. The plaintiff claimed that tbe architect did not due care and skill to ascertain in the manner provided by the contract, Avhat was in fact tbo net balance payable to the plaintiff, but that he knowingly or negligently certified for a much less sum than was in fact the net bal¬ ance payable to the plaintilV in respect to the work executed, and that by rea.son thereof, he, the plaintiff, was unalile to obtain paj-nient. The court held, that tbe action was not main¬ tainable, as there was no direct contract between the architect and builder, tho former not being a party to the contract between the company erect¬ ing tbe building and the buildez-, although he was mentioned therein. The architect having exercised b's judgment, and given his opinion on the plaintiff's work, and tlie plaintiff having agreed in bis contract to be bound thereby, could not maintain an action for any mi.skilful or neg¬ ligent performance of that duty iu the absence of proof of fraud on the part of the architect, LAWS OF NEW YOKK, 1879.
