MECHANICS' LIE.\â€”husband's COXTHACTâ€”WIFE'S
The Supreme Court of Connecticut has decided
the following question : A hiLsband is life tenant
of certain land and the wife the owner of the fee
thereof, and both live together in a dwelling
house which is erected upon the land.
The husband employed certain builders to
erect two additional buildings of wood on a stone
foundation upon the land. The wife knew that
the materials were being furnished and the work
done, and made no objection thereto. Upon
failure of the husband to pay the contract price
lor the same, the buildei-s filed a lien against tho
The court hold, that tho fee of tbe wife could
not be holden for tho work. As a pre-requisite
to the lien she should hei-self.eitber have made the
contract, or have consented to tbe performance of
the work, after niformation from the builders
that it was not to be done upon the pei^sonal
credit of the husband, but upon tho credit of her
fee, and that this last would be subject to a lien,
in default of payment. It may be assumed that
the structure erected upon the land would add to
the profit of the life use, and it is therefore to be
presumed that the husband was acting solely lor
himself and for the benelit of bis particular estate,
unless it can be shown that the husband was actÂ¬
ing in fact as the agent for bis wife.
Tbe fact that she witnes.sed the execution of tbe
work and her making no objection thereto a,ssent-
ed to its being done, does not impo.se an implied
promise on her part to pay for the .same.
(JAS KI.XTUUES A.\D HEATER DO NOT PASS WITH
The Supreme Court of Peini.sylvania has deÂ¬
cided that upon the sale of a hou.se the gas iix-
tures and heater therein, though appurtenant
thereto, are to be deemed personal property, and
do not pa-ss to a purchaser of the property. It
may be shown, however, by p-iro! proof, that
pursuant to a collateral agreement between the
seller and purchaser, tbe gas fixtures and beater
were to pass with the bouse; and this is so notÂ¬
withstanding the fact that tbe contract for the
sale of the .same was in writing. It l.t:, therefore,
advisable in all contracts for the sjile and purÂ¬
chase of real property to specify what lixtures
or other appurtenances not necessarily realtv
are intended to he included in the contract.
AUCHITECT AXn BUILDER.
Tbe Court of Common Pleas of England has
decided the following:
The plaintiff was employed to build for a comÂ¬
pany a certain hall, and the defendant was tbe
architect thereof, named in the building contract.
The action was brought by the builder against
tbe architect for not using duo care and skill in
ascertaining the amounts to ba paid to :lie buildÂ¬
er under tlie contract, which provided, that he
was to be paid upon tlio certificato of the archiÂ¬
tect. The contract authorized the architect to
order additions or deductions, and bound the
builder and tho employing company to leave all
disputes to tbo architect for decision, and .such
decision to be final and conclusive upon the parÂ¬
ties. The plaintiff claimed that tbe architect did
not u.se due care and skill to ascertain in the
manner provided by the contract, Avhat was in
fact tbo net balance payable to the plaintiff, but
that he knowingly or negligently certified for a
much less sum than was in fact the net balÂ¬
ance payable to the plaintilV in respect to the
work executed, and that by rea.son thereof, he,
the plaintiff, was unalile to obtain paj-nient.
The court held, that tbe action was not mainÂ¬
tainable, as there was no direct contract between
the architect and builder, tho former not being a
party to the contract between the company erectÂ¬
ing tbe building and the buildez-, although he
was mentioned therein. The architect having
exercised b's judgment, and given his opinion on
the plaintiff's work, and tlie plaintiff having
agreed in bis contract to be bound thereby, could
not maintain an action for any mi.skilful or negÂ¬
ligent performance of that duty iu the absence of
proof of fraud on the part of the architect,
