Excerpt from Cases Determined in the Supreme Court of Washington: January 6, 1919-March 1, 1919 Tolman, J - This is an action for fraud and deceit, tried to a jury, resulting in a verdict and judgment in favor Of respondent, who was plaintiff below. There was much conflict in the testimony, the record is long, and, so far as necessary for an understanding Of the case, a sufficient statement is that there was evidence from which the jury found, or might have found, the following facts: That respondent, at the time Of the trial below, was about eighty years Old, uneducated, not able to read or write, save to sign his own name, and so deaf that he could not hear or understand an ordinary conversation; that, for some years, he had owned a half section of wheat land in Lincoln county, Washington, alleged in his complaint to be worth not less than and conceded by the answer to be worth on which there was a mortgage for Appellant E. E. Mayer, hereinafter referred to as appellant, who owned land adjoining respond ent's farm in Lincoln county, had for some years leased respondent's land and looked after all Of his business affairs for him with reference to the land, such as paying interest on the mortgage, paying taxes, etc., and making settlement for the proceeds of re spondent's share Of the crop after deducting such pay ments. Respondent, being a resident of Minnesota, came to Washington but infrequently, and the corre spondence tends to show that he relied absolutely upon appellant with respect to all business matters touching his farm, and that the relations between the parties became confidential.
