Not illustrated. 1918 edition. Excerpt: ...interest upon the fifty thousand dollars disbursed on checks, and allowed no-interest upon dividends declared and collected upon corporate stocks, we shall not now decide what amount of interest should properly be allowed, but shall leave this question to be handled anew by the chancellor. There was no delay on the part of Mrs. Jones as surviving partner in disburs I ing moneys coming-into her hands. The other assignments on direct appeal will be overruled. None of the cross-assignments, in our judgment, are well taken. We have given special consideration to the assignment challenging the allowance of seven hundred and fifty dollars premium upon Mrs. Jones' bond as surviving partner. Under the language of the consent decree and our statute (section 2029, Code of 1906, section 1694, Hemingway 's Code) we think the chancellor was justified in allowing this item as a part of the "lawful expense of executing this trust." To the extent indicated, the decree of the learned chancellor will be reversed on direct appeal and aflirmed on cross-appeal. Indeed the motion to dismiss the crossappeal, so far as it attempts to appeal from the decree overruling the motion to dissolve the injunction, and rendered in March, 1912, should be sustained, no appeal having been applied for or taken from this decree within two years from the date thereof. So far as the crossassignments attack the correctness of the final decree confirming the commissioner's report, we entertain jurisdiction, and have given due consideration to the several alleged errors. Reversed in part and remanded on direct appeal and affirmed on cross-a/ppeal. SPARKS 12. CITY or Jsoxson. 79 South. 67, Division B. 1. Muzucnuu. CORPORATIONS. Street paving. Notice more
