A HIGHLAND LAIRD AND HIS FACTOR. In the Court of Session, Edinburgh, Lord Fraser has given judgment in the action at the instance of James Mollison, of Bedford, England, against Mr. Evan Baillie, of Dochfour, Inverness-shire, in which pursuer concluded for £2,500 as damages for alleged illegal dismissal. Defender succeeded his grandfather in the estates in 1883, and in May of that year granted a commission to pursuer em- powering him to continue as factor. In May last, however, pursuer received a letter from defender, who was then in London, saying that he desired to occupy himself personally in the management of his estates, and did not hesitate to state frankly that it would be satisfactory to receive pursuer's resignation. To this pursuer replied that he would many times rather be dismissed, because the public would think that he had been allowed to resign in order to screen some palpable offence.â Defender replied that the appointment would termi- nal o at Michaelmas last.-Pursuer maintained that his appointment was practically permanent. The rental of the estates was, he said, close on E20,000,and he had had the sole management of them for 15 years. Lord Fraser, in giving judgment, said that tho law of Scotland provided that a master was at liberty to dismiss a servant on payment of wages and board wages for the term of the engagement. The payment was in reality damages for the dis- missal. It was thus settled that the damages can in no case exceed the amount of wages. He accordingly gave a decree in the terms of the offer for a year's salary, £520, and granted the defender absolvitor with regard to the remainder of the case and expenses.
