The waate lands were snbaequently ^iven by thp inamdar for eultitation from time to tim e to different sets of tenants without ocenpancy I'iglat. The inamdar brought, the "present suit in the Civil Court to eject the tenant whose period of tenancy had expired prior to the suit. The defendant contended that the Civil Court had no jurisdictioii to entertain the suit. Held, that the village as a w hole must be considered to be an estate within the definition of section 3, clause ( 2 ) (d ) of the Estates Land Act. Surrender by tenant is not one of tlie modes in -which the kudivaram r%h.s can be acquired by an inamdar within the terms of the exception to section 8 of the Estates Land A ct. An inamdar cannot acqaire the kadivaram. right bv surrender from a tenant, who had himself uo ocoapancy rij^ht in the holding-.

He may, in the exercise of his discretion as guardian, entrust the custody and edufation of hia children to another ; bub the authority he thus confers is essentially a revocable authority, and if the welfare of bis children, require it, be can. mtwithstanding any contract to the oontrai'y, take such custody and education once more into his own hands. If however the authority has been acted upon in such a way as in the opinion of the <^onrt exercising the jurisdiction of the Crown over infanta to create associations or give rise to expectations on the part of the infants which it would' be andeairable in. their interests to disturb ot dis?appoint, such Court will interfere to prevent its revocation, Lyons v.

The plaintiff (respondent) a Brahniin residing at Madras, and having only a small income, had been for many years a member o f the Theosophioal Society of which the defendant (appellant) was President. He had two eons bora respectively on llt h May lb95 and 30th May In.1910 the appellant offered to take charge of hie sons and defray the expenbq o f their roaintenanee and education in England and at the ttniversity. of Oxford.

On his death his brother R succeeded to the estate. S-abaequenfcly in 1S70, K adopted B who recovered the zamindari from E by suit and died ii\ 1906 without iflsne loaving a widow R.M. On the death, of B, the son o R succeeded to the zamindari but died fifteen daycf after his accession ; the first and second defendants -were his sons. In 1907, K purporting to act iinder the power given by her husband, adopted the plaintiff as 01 son to her hufiband, while R.M. the widow of B was alive. The plaintiff sued to recover the zamindari from the defendants. The latter pleaded that the power to adopt f^iven to IT by j4 (her ha.sband), did not authorize her to make a second adoption, that the existence H was a bar to the exercise ot the power even if ifc was not exhausted by thfe first adoption and that the adoption, n.ot liavinf? been made to the last male holder, was invalid. Held, that the power to adopt g^ivon by A to K wus wide enongh to enable her to make a Becond adoption, but that the power was not exercisable by reason of thefact that B.M. (B a widow) was alivo when the second adoption was made by K, Per W h i t e, C.J. The rule that an adoption should be mad to the las-t male owner is applicable to a joint Hindu family living? under the Mitakshara law. Sivagnanam Servaigar v. Ramaswamy GheMiar (1912) 22 85, referred to. Per SESHAstBi Ayyat, J. The canon of construction regarding powers to adopt is not different from that of ordinaiy testamentary dispositions. The intention of the testator has to be g-athered from the language employed by him and from the circnmstancea existing at the time of the grant of the power. The a u t h o r i t y given by a Hindu to his wipe should be regarded as being general in its nature unless conditions have been imposed or limitations placed upon it by him. Where the exercise of a power to make a second adoption will not result in creating a new line of succebsion but will only transfer the estate from, one intermediate'owner to another with the prospect of the latter being eventually divested, the limib of the power to adopt should be held to have been reached. An estate taken by survivorship by a member of a joint Hindu family is a conditional estate subject to defeaeauoe on the coming into esistence by adoption or otherwise, o f a new member into the oo-paroenary; the rale of law tha,t, in order that an estate once vested may bo divested, the adoption should be made to the last male holder, is not applicable to co-parcenary property ; and an. impartible zamindari is joint family property subject to an exceution.

The contract was entered into by the first defendant, the undivided father of the second defendant who was subsequently added as a party to the suit. The first defendant pleaded that the contract was vitiated by undue influence and was a hard bargain that; ought not to be enforced against him. I be second defendant pleaded that the contract waa entered into by the first without any legal necessity and was not enforceable in la<w. It was foun.d that there was no undue inflaence or hard bargain and that there was no necessity to enter into tho contract. The plaintiff offered to pay the fall consideratio^i for a conveyance of the lands which were the separate property of t.he first defendant and of his intei'f^st in the family lands. Held, that the plaintifs; was not entitled to a deoree for speoifio performance ot tlie contract against the first defendant or the second defendant. Per S/vnkaran Uair, J. A person is entitled to specific performance of a, contract by a member of a Hindu fam ily to sell his sharo of the family property. If a junior member o a Hindu fam ily agrees to sell any Hpeoifio property belonging to his family, a decree cannot be passed against him to sell hia share of that specific property.

Hence, a legititaate son of a sndra woman, born in lawful -wedlock, succeeds to ihe property acquired by his mother by prostitution afteor the death of his father and her ilhjgitinaate dan.yh.ter born in prostitution, is not an h.eir to such property. Prostitution doe.s not sever the tie of kinship by blood and does not bring the prostitute "within the categorv' o f dancing- f?irls "whose children are allowed by custom and precedent in Southern India the right of succession to th*e property acquired by their mothers. The word daughters in the rule of the ilitaktihava vvhich allows duuglitei's to succeed to their parents property in certain cases, means only legitimate daughters.

The TTig'h Court hna power imder Order X iil, rnle 33, of the Civil Procodrire Oode bo I'aas Buch decree as it thinks proppr dealinjrf with the rit^-hfrs of all the parties before it. Per S d n d a e a A y y a r, J, In a anit f o r partition, provision must be made in the decree for expenses of the Dpanoyanam and marriage of coparceners as well as for the expenhes ot' the mat-riage of the unmarried aipters out of the family property whether ii; is anoestral or separate or selfacqnired property of the father of the pmttios. Marriage ia a proper o e T e r a o n y for a Brahnniu and an obliji'atorv ceremony for all HiudviB with extremely few exceptions. Mol^ ru custom is undoubtedly in favour of allowing the provision. In decidinp; what ceremonies are regarded ub proi:)er and neoessary, regard shonld bo had to the sentiments of the com munity, es-paoially when there is a difference of opinion araona,' the text wi'itera. A brother who has had his own marriage jjerformod at the family expense, is not entitled to object to a similar proviaion being made for the other brotherb.

Upanayana or the ceremony of investiture of thread, in the case of a male member of a oopnropnary, and marri.i^e in the case of a famalo are ovjligalory sams karan which the initiated brothers are botincl to perform for their uninitiated brothers and sisnera, and the initiated brothers are bounrl to m ate a provision for the expenses of performing the same out of the paternal estate before it is divided. Marriage iu the case of a male member of a oo-parcenary ia not an obligatory samslcara for the performs,nee of which the iiiifciated brother is bonnd to make'a provision out of the paternal property at the partition.

There is privity of estate between the lessor and the assignee, and the latter is hound to perfornx the coveriants of the lease after the assignment.

On principle there seems to be no reason wiiy an assij^nee &hoald not be entitled to apportionment as between hiniself and the lessor, and why rent should jiot be d< eined to acorae due from day t o d iy as between them. In England the Law of apportioiimeet has Jong be^en regulated by atatutes, and all rents, etc., are, like interest 011 ajonej lent, considered as accruing froiti day to day and apportionable inre'^pect of time accordingly.

December 190-i) a promissory note pajable by monfclily instalments of fis. 1,000, the whole sum being recoverable in the event of three Biiccessive defaults. After sixteen instahjionts were paid, the ptaisitilf refused to receive farther instalmenta tendered by the defendants but brought a suit in August ltj06 to set aside the release deed on the ground that it had been obtained by fraud. The suit was distnissed and, on appeal, the dismissal was confirmed on 19th.lanuary Jn the Appellate Oonrt an oral application was made on behalf of the plaintxfl that a decree might be passed in that suit for the amonnt of the balance of the instalments. The defendants seated in the Appellate Oonrt that they were always ready and willing to pay the amonnt but pleaded that no decree could bo passed in that suit for the amount and the Appellate Court refused to paas a decree for the same. The plaintiff then made a demand on the defeudantg on 25th January 1910 for the balance of the instalments due on the promissory note and on refuaal hy the defendants brought the present, sint. The defendants pleaded the bar of limitation. The Trial Judge held that the defendants who had admitted their liability for the amount in resisting the plaiiitis s application in tbe previous suit were estopped (though not under sectioq 115 of the Indian Evidence A ct) on general principles of law and equity from pleading that the suit for the amount of the instalments was barred by iim.itation.

Per A bddr Kahim, J.-E v e n aprart from tlie ffict whether there is sufiiciwnt property of the tarwad to which a member of a tavazui can look for maintenance, he has a right to demand an allowance in the nature of maintenauco from the ta^azhi property itself. Maintenance is not a mere subsigtence allowance. It.should be based on the value of the tarwad proi^erty, the position of the members and not confined to whav. is jnst sufficient to satisfy the needs of the memher.s. A membei* of a fcavazhi is entitled to an allowance for maintenance both from the tavazhi and tarwad properties. Where a deed of gift in favour of a woman is clearly expressed to be to her and her children, there is no warrant for constraing it as conferring on the donee an abeolnte title to the property given where* the donee is the wife of the donor and a mexxiher of a Slarumiikkattayam tarwad. It mnkes no difference that the ka-rnavau of tha tarwad joined in the g ift.' In estimating the amount of the income of the tavazhi property Cnt of which maintenance is payable, the inf-eresfe payable upon debts binding' on the tavazhi should be deducted but not interest on debts, contracted after the period for which maintenance is claimed.

After attainiag majority the fii st defendant executed a Befctlemeinfc transferrinjo; all his property to his mother and his wife on behalf ot hia minor SOD, the second deftsndant, stipniating only for maintenance for himself. Ths firrt defendant after attaining niajority, had endorsed payments on the moi'tgage-deed and attested the tran.sfei' of tho same b j tho third dofendixtit to the fourth defendant. It was found by the lowor AppelL'ijto Court that the settlement was intended to be operatire but t hat it was executed by the first defendant "with intent to defeat and delay his creditors. It was also found tliat there was no fraud or misiepresentation by the minov as to hia agfi when he burrowed on the mortgage. The plaintiff contended that the JirKt defendant was bound to refund th"e ainonnt advanced on the mortgage to the third defendant, and that he was const'cjnently a creditor entitled to set aside the settlc-ment. The first defendant adniitl'ed tho plaintiff s chiina. The second defendsmt, who contested tiie suit, preferred the Second Appeal. Held., where a minor has obtainod money by misrepresenting his age, that amounts to fraud, and he moiy be made to refiind it, but, in tho absence of fraud, a refund cannot bo ordered. As theie was no fraiid or misrepreaentation by the luinor as to his age when lie burrowed money on the mostgage, he could not have been ordered to refund ajacl the third dei endant was not one of hia creditors at the date of the set tie tne u t; consequently the plaintiff was not competent to sue under section 53 of the Tranisfer of Properliy Act to set it asicie. The admission of the first defendant during the suit, Iria endorsement of payments on the mortgag-e and his attestation of the transfer-deed could not givo the idlaintife the I'iyht t(,i set ab ide the aettiemeiifc as againat the second defendant. Q,uaere. Whether subsequent creditors are included nndor seetiou 5:^ of the Transfer of Property Act. Per Sadasiva Ayyab, J. A person does not aotnally become a subsequent or prior creditor by reasoa of tlie estoppel of the debtor. An eatoppal cannot overrule a plain provisioii of law. The statutory proyikion thafc a minor is iacompetent; to incur a ooiitractual debt cannot be overrnled by an OBtoppel. Yaikuntarania Pillai v. Authimonlavi Gheitiar...

MoMdeen Bee v. 8yed Meer ^aheb (191o) I.L.E., 38 Mad., j Muta,wallisMp of property annexed to a mosque - Eight to succeed hy principle of heredity Proof and validify of such right.] Beld, on the facts of the case, that the plaintiff who claimed to he the mutawalli of on the plaint mosqne by right of heredity, had not estabiiebed by clear proof that that was the method o f snccersion to the office and that he was therefore the lawful mntawalli. Eeld also, hs a valid appointment of a ran.ta'walli could be made only in one of three inodes, v iz.: (o) by the orig inal author of the -vvaqf or by some person expressly anthorized by hitn, or (bj by the executor of the author, or (c) lastly, by the Courtj any.per.son claiming to be a mutavralli by heredity, mnet Bhow by strict proof of precedents that that mode of appointment was one whicli munt be necessarily deemed to have been sanction! d bj' the author of the trust. It ia frequently provided thai each mutawalli yhould have the power to ftpi oiut hia suceeesor : where there has been a long established practice for the mutawalli to nominate hie Buccessorj it is assumed (unless the contrary is proved) that power to do ecr was given by the founder o f the waqf. Bat "vvhere from past practice, it is sought to be established that the mutawalliship is to devolve hereditarily, there must be something- from which a rnle o hereditary sncoesbion sufficiently precis or definite may be deduced ; and the mere f.iet that for some time prior to 1874 three persona from the family of the plaintiff were succefisively mutawallis doeg not show that mutawallibhip dew ived by here" dity in the abaence of proof that they were not appointed or nominated by somebody.

Aa aliimatioii by the head of a mutt is n.ot iiecessai'ily void and of no eqect but is good for the liti^-time of rhe alie^ior. A niatathipathi (head of a mutt) is not a tenai'ifc for life bat is in thn posirion of one who, though in a certain sense owner in fee siinpl*, yet in many respects has only the po'vers of a tenant for life. An alienation by the head of a mutt is voiflable by the ahenor s Huccessor.-? in very much the ssime vi'ay that an alienation by a Hiudii widow in exceaa of her jiowers is voidable by her successors.

The provisions againtt the alienation contained in the deed of grant Wbre absolute restraints on alienation and were \oid under aeoiion lu of the Tranal er of Property Act and under the Hindu Law.

When a guardian (natt.ralor appointed) of am inorhae giren. a lease, a.nother guardian, cannot set it aside by a mere act of repudiation ; he can do b o only by obtaining a decree of Court a suit which may be instituted oii behalf of the minor during- hia minority, but his action in instituting a suit to set it aside (which was dismissed for his default) has no greater effect than his mere act of repudiation. Held coasequently, that the plaiatife was entitled to recover rent from the defendants under the lease. Muihukumara Chetty v. Anthony XJdayar...

After the deposit had been renewed several times, Messrs. Arburhnot & Co., became insolvent and the trust Cund waa lost. The plaintiff, ^yho was sippoiiited by the Court as trustee in the place of the defendants (who were the previous trustees appointed under the will) brought this snib against the latter for dama^fee for loss of the trust funds by reason of their breach of trust. The District Judge decreed rlaniag-es against the defendants, who preferred a Second Appoa?! to the High Court: Held, that the defendants wei'e liable in dnmages for breach of trust. As regards the amoun^t payable to the minor SOH, it could not he applied for the purposes of the trust immediately or at an early date, as the trustees could not pny the money to the minor until the attainment, of bis majority, nor couk'l it be paid to the guardian o f the minor during minority. Section 4>1 of the Trusts Aet jiermits payment to the j/narrjiail only of the inoomo of the property. The speciifio provisions contaiued in the other sections of the Indian Trusts Act are as obligatory as the general provisions of section 15 of the said Act. T!ie defendants were bonriri to invest the trust inonevs in the securities specified in section 20 of the Indian Trusts Act, and having? failed to do so, they mnst be held U) have committed a breach of trust, although they had acte<3 honestly ajtij with the prudence which an ordinary man would exercise in the oondncfc of liib own uft airs. A trustee guijty of broach of trust by not investing- trust -fimda as required by section 20 of the Indian Trusts A ct is not exempted by section 15 thereof from liability in damages. The Indian Conrfcs have not been given the power (conferred by statutes in England) to protect ti'nsiees in any case where a clear breach of trust has been committed. Where a trasteo investa money in an unauthorised security, this must be treated as tan.tamottnfc to faihu'e to invest within the terms of section 23, clause (c) of the Trusts Act, and he is liable to pay interest under that section. It may be doubted whether the rule disentitling the beneficiary to interest except in the oases euumevated in section 23, could be applied where the trust money has beeji lost in an unauthorised investment. The Court should have power in such cases to award interest as damag'es. Tinipatirayuchi, H'aicl'U v. LalisliminaTasCLmmcL... (1915) I.L.R., 38 Mad,, -,deafji of, spending appedl'.
