ARTHUR Port Artlutr, at., An ALO. IVEf WANTS THC SCHOOL BOARD TO FURNISH STATEMENT A LIBERAL CAUCUS Ottawa, June A Liberal caucus will be held tomorrow to discuss the situation -with regard to the election bill, with particular reference to the condition, of the new as prepar- ed this month in Manitoba. The action of the Manitoba government in coni- ng to a tardy decision on the request of Mr. Borden to extend the time for hearing appeals by courts of revis- sion, was helpful to clear up the sit- uation to some extent and both sides of the House are anxious to arrive, if possible at some satisfactory agree- ment. THE THAWS WILL NOT SEPARATE and robbery y Mr. Justice Scott in the reserved case of D. J. Whitney and WVO. Ives against Lawrence H. Burn and H. Home tried at the recent sittings of the Supreme Court here. It will be remembered that the plaintiffs sued to recover the'sum of from the defendants as the amount due under two agreements for the pur- chase of certain lands belonging to the plaintiffs in the south-east part of the city. The defence set up that as the plaintiffs had" not an absolute and clear title at. the time of the sale that the defendants were at liberty to -rescind- the agreements. Mr. Justice Scott holds that the right ofiji vendor to compel specific performance by' the purchaser is not dependent upon his having an absolute title at the time of.entering into the agreement to sell. It is sufficient to say-that at that time he was iu a position to compel tho delivery of the title to the purchaser time fixed for the conviction of'the purchase. Hg therefore holds that the plaintiffs are entitled to a judgment for specific'performance and a direction that in default of pay- ment of the balance of the purchase money and interest within a certain time that the agreements be rescind- ed, or at the option of the plaintiffs that the lands in the agreements be sold. A reference is to be made to the clerk of the Court to tax the plain- tiff's costs and to take an account of the amount of the purchase money due to tho plaintiffs with, interest and to fix not less than three months, hence for the "payment by the defendants of the .sum found due with costs.
