It is with us a prevailing practice for a litigant to deny all the facts alleged by his opponent, and to put him to proof of them. Such a denial, tending as it does to maintain the volume of a caso, ought to be punished by deprivation or infliction of costs. Litigants would then soon learn only to carry into co art the real question at issue, and not a mass of irrelevant matter; but as long as the fundamental principle of the law of evidence remains as it is, I convinced there can be no relief to the suitor on the score of the cost of litigation.”
