And where such an application has been made bona fide and not for the sake of delay, the arbitrator who refuses the application, or by summarily making his award precludes the party from himself applying to the Court, is guilty of a breach of duty.-In re Palmer and Co. and Hosken & Co., L.R.  1 Q.B, 131,
Evidence Act, 1879 (42 & 43 Vict. c. 11), s. 7 (1).-Inspection of entries in bankers' books will in general be granted only when the entries are in an account which is in substance that of one of the parties to the litigation.

Neither claimant had given notice of assignment. Held, that the commission so acquired by the bankrupt was in the nature of earnings from a trade or business, and passed to the trustee; that the first claim not having been perfected by notice could not prevail against the trustee, and that the second claim was
not a charge on the particular fund.---Mercer v. Vans Colina, 78 L.T. 21. (iv.) Q. B. D.-Application to set aside a Bankruptcy Notice-Bankruptcy

-Assignment after Discharge.-An insolvent in the Colony of Victoria assigned to the plaintiffs for good consideration after his discharge, property in England to which he became entitled before his discharge. The plaintiffs knew that the assignee in bankruptcy was unaware of the insolvent's interest in the property which they were acquiring.

Hunt; e. p. The Board of Trade, L.R.  1 Q.B. 287. Bills of Exchange:(vi.) Q. B. D,-Action on Consideration-Bill not in Hands of Plaintiff at

the plaintiff before trial.-Davis v. Reilly, L.R.  1 Q.B. 1. (vii.) Q. B.-Liability of Joint Maker of Promissory Note, whose Signature is
Obtained by Fraud -- Bills of Exchange Act, 1882 (45 d: 46 Vict., c. 61), 8. 29.--A “holder in due course" is a person to whom a bill or note is negotiated after completion by the immediate parties. A payee is
care, who has been fraudulently induced to sign a note or bill under the impression that he was merely witnessing the signature of the joint maker of the note or bill to another document, is not responsible to the payee or to a holder in due course.
