On an interesting question of bankruptcy law, a correspondent

writes :-“In the Law TIMES of the 25th ult., I observe No. IV.

of a series of articles you are publishing on the question of liqui-

dation and composition by arrangement. In that article you state

that the question whether a debtor who is sued by a creditor who

could prove his debt under the liquidation, should plead his order

of discharge as a bar, or apply for an injunction, is unsettled; but

I trust you will allow me to venture an opinion that the question

is settled to a certain extent in the County Courts, which have

primary jurisdiction in bankruptcy, Rule 289 may be taken as

the basis of the argument. This rule is supplemented by the case

of Satterfield v. Fox (LAW TIMEs, vol. xlix., p. 114, Liverpool Court),

where an injunction was granted against action by creditor,

although debtor had pleaded, and was therefore estopped from

contending the debt was provable, and although the money was

paid into court, and, therefore, the proceedings were not against

the debtor or his property, and although by such payment plain.

tiffs become secured creditors. Also Ex parte Williams, re Teece

(Law Times, vol. l., p. 243, Liverpool Court), where an injunction

was granted against execution upon after-acquired property on

judgment obtained after discharge, but for debt provable under

the petition. In the last case, Dr. Comins, who appeared for the

creditor, contended that the debtor ought to have pleaded his

discharge, and that he was prevented from applying for an injunc.

tion, having slept over his rights. The learned Judge who pre-

sided on that occasion did not dwell upon the point raised, but

granted the injunction. These cases sufficiently establish the

point, that the debtor in such a case should apply for an injunc-

tion. I fully concur with you, that it is to be regretted that the

judgment of the Bacup Court was not appealed against, our County

Courts being inferior courts of record, and analogous to the

provincial courts in France under the Code Napoleon, where the

decision of one court is not binding on another. If the County

Courts were superior courts of law, the judgment of one court

would stand until reversed on appeal, and I consider it a pity

that County Court Judges should not be bound by previous


arder ....

The law as between husband and wife is not so abundantly

clear that another case on the subject will not be welcomed.

Jones and Wife v. Cuthbertson (26 L. T. Rep. N. S. 359; 28

L. T. Rep. N. S. 673; L. Rep. 7 Q.B. 218; 8 Q.B. 504), raised
a question whether under a particular state of circumstances
a joint action by husband and wife could be maintained. The
defendant was a solicitor, which may, or may not, give the
case additional interest. A married woman had freehold and
leasehold property devised to her separate use, and she being
desirous of building and repairing some cottages upon part of it,
and her husband wanting to pay off a debt, it was arranged under
the advice of the defendant, that a loan should be raised by the
mortgage of the wife's property and the deposit of two policies of
the husband, each on the life of the husband and wife respectively,
The mortgage was executed by husband and wife, and the husband
covenanted for the repayment of the loan. The money was
to be advanced by instalments, and a joint authority signcd by
husband and wife was given to the defendant to receive the first
instalment from the mortgagees. He received it and paid the
husband's debt, but he claimed to retain a debt due to him from
the husband. An action was brought for the balance by the
husband and wife jointly, and the Court of Queen's Bench and the
Exchequer Chamber have held that the action was maintainable.
Mr. Justice BRETT very pertinently asked whether the money
advanced was not advanced partly on the security of the wife's
separate estate, and, if so, was she not partly the meritorious
