Σελίδα 428 - Many circumstances may exist which may make it necessary and indispensable to the business of the road and the preservation of the property, for the receiver to pay preexisting debts of certain classes, out of the earnings of the receivership, or even the corpus of the property, under the order of the court, with a priority of lien. Yet the discretion to do so should be exercised with very great care. The payment of such debts stands, prima facie, on a different basis from the payment of claims arising...
Σελίδα 429 - The mortgagee has his strict rights which he may enforce in the ordinary way. If he asks no favors, he need grant none.

Σελίδα 427 - No one is bound to sell to a railroad company or to work for it; and whoever has dealings with a company whose property is mortgaged must be assumed to have dealt with it on the faith of its personal responsibility, and not in expectation of subsequently displacing the priority of the mortgage liens. It is the exception and not the rule that such priority of liens can be displaced.
Σελίδα 468 - He then refers to and reviews a number of authorities, English and American, on the subject, and continues as follows: "The principle deducible from these authorities seems to be, that whatever may be the form or nature of the conveyance used to pass real property, if the grantor sets forth ' on the face of the instrument, by way of recital or averment, that he is...
Σελίδα 335 - ... part thereof is open for public traffic, be liable to be taken in execution at law or in equity at any time after the passing of this act...
Σελίδα 431 - The power rests upon the fact that 'in the administration of the affairs of the company the mortgage creditors have got possession of that which in equity belonged to the whole or a part of the general creditors. Whatever is done, therefore, must be with * view to a restoration by the mortgage creditors of that which they have thus inequitably obtained.
Σελίδα 479 - The record shows that the defendant was asked if he had anything to say why sentence should not be passed upon him.
