Dunbdin, July 23. Judge Williams gave judgment to-day for plaintiff in the case, Road v Gillibrand. In the course of his judgment he said Gilliard was far from being stupid or unintelligent. His letters were well expressed, correctly spelt, and he gave his evidence as if he perfectly well knew what it was about. He admits that at the Land Board enquiry he swore falsely. Documentary evidence does not support hia j>resent contention. If it were bought now to set aside the mortgage in substatative proceedings on the grounds that no money had ever been advanced under it, or on any other ground, it would certainly require the clearest unimpeachable evidence to justify the Court taking that. view ; and that evidence is not forthcoming in the present case. Defendant may have, for all I know, other rights of action against the Smiths, but has not made out any defence in the present proceedings sufficient to defeat plaintiffs title obtained under the Land Transfer Act.
