Carew, Esq., R.M.) Henry Pickford v. John R. Jordan.— Claim, LI 43 (id, on a judgment summons. Mr Milne appeared for plaintiff.— Defendant Baid that he was in regular employment at 30s per week —seven days in the week, but he had a wife and six children to support, and had the doctor in the house.— His Worship said that he did not see how the man could do more than support his family.—The case would be dismissed. M. Moss v. Joseph L. Cre.quer.—Claim, LlO 3a (id, on a judgment Bummons. Mr Solomon for plaintiff; defendant did not appear.—Plaintiff in the course of his evidence said that defendant was an undischarged bankrupt.—His Worship thought that this practically hatred the issuing of an order, as it could not be enforced.—Mr Solomon contended that bankruptcy did not make any rjifference in makipg the order, but it might make a differpnee in putting the man ioto gaol. Before an order could be enforced it would be necessary that the leave of the Bankruptcy Court should be obtained. It was never intended that a man by filing aud doing nothing more should get out of his debts. The very point was before the Judge last week in Harty v. Marr, when His Honor said that he did not want to make an order in the absence of the defendant, but if the defendant did not appear the proper thing was to make an order. The order could not be put in force against him without the leave of the Bankruptcy Court, and before an order of imprisonment was made the plaintiff would have to satisfy the Bankruptcy Court that the defendant bad been misbehaving himself in the matter.—His Worship said that he did not understand this to be a judgment by His Honor, but merely a passing opinion. The matter might, however, stand over for a week, to give him (Mr Carew) time to consider the point. A. Tapper and Co. v. James Houston.— Claim, L 49 4s 9d, goods supplied and work done. Mr Solomon for plaintiff.—Judgment by default. Bing, Harris, and Co. v. George R. Moore (of Gisborne).— Claim, L 23 9s lOd, on a promissory note and interest.
