ROYAL BRITISH BANK CASE. The lloyal British Bank v. Jones case came up again on Satur.lay, in Mr. Justice Bigham's Court. On behalf of the defendant, Mr. A. F. Wootton moved for judgment on the counter-claim, the plaintiffs having failed to put in a reply. Counsel said the action was brought by the Koyal British liank, which was run by Mr. Cochrane and another person who called himself Lord De Morley, against; ilif- defendant to recover certain calls on shares. The defendant counter-claimed to have the register rectified by the removal of his name therefrom, and for a declaration that he was not liable for any shares registered in his name. The plaintiffs failed to comply with an order to deliver a further and better affidavit of documents and give security for costs, and the action was dismissed. On the j counter-claim counsel said four certificates of j shares were handed to the defendant by a person named Ward on the representation that they were fovr £ 50 fully-paid shares in the bonk. It subse- quently turned out that instead of being the cer- tificates of four fully-paid £50 shares they were the certificates of shares in respect of which there was a liability of Y,49 each. The allegation was that Ward was the agent of the bank. Mr. Justice Bigham entered judgment for the defendant on his counter-claim, with costs.
