U6HES vs. WASHINGTON. H Decrees Cannot Be Entered in Law- - ' suits, Where Destroyed Evl-<'' V deuce Has Not Been Restored. A Chancellor Must Not Trust to. Eecolleotion—Tho-’ Ticklish- Nature of. a Decree. The Constitution Guarantees.Every LI gant the Right to Have Jiidg .nient Reviewed. Doubtful Points Decided Possessing Inter est to Jinny Ante-Fire Litigants. In Washington V. IXughes, a anlt for the poa acaalon of certain lands, Bold by Hugboa, an agent, claimed to bo belonging to tbo estate of John A. Washington, the Supremo Court of this State baa decided several points of interest to tbo profession, and to litigants having bad coses about to bo decided at tbo.timo of the groat tiro, in which the decrees wore not entered—of which there aro mauy, of an important cbaraotor, now ponding in this State, .which this opinion will sottio. Tbo following is tbo opinion, by Walkor, Jus tice, tbo cases being instituted in • tbo Supremo Court Goorgo It. H. Hughes pt al. v, iliobard B. Washington, executor, oto,; * , . Thoso cases proaont substantiallytho same quostinno, and wo ilioroforo consider them ono. yhoy wpro brought by the* boiraof John A. Washington against George’ It. H. Hughos and tho liolrs of Sanderson Robert. . Tho bills,woro filed to sot aside and annul contracts of ealo of LABOEAKO VALUABLE BEAL ESTATE In the City of Chicago, by Hughes, as tho agont of Washington’s heirs, to Robert. Tho grounds alleged for rescinding tho contract was fraud. Tho eases were board together in tho Circuit Court of Cook County on tho Gth-day of May,; 1871. Tho evidence • was very volumi nous, and consisted largely < of letters sent and received by tbo various partlos, depositions, and other documentary evidence. After l tho hearing Was had, it is claimed that' tbo Court below decided tho cases 'hr favor of complainants, but, before any decree was render ed or enrolled, tbo flro of October of that year destroyed tbo Court-Houso and all tho papers in thoeftses. both pleadings and ovidonep. • Coun sel agreed upon and restored the pleadings in tho cases.- The defendant then made a: motion for time to rotako and EESTOHE ALL OP TIIE DKBTBOYED EVIDENCE, and urged their Tight to havo tlio evidence roV stored and on file before a decree should bo v passed and filed for record, or ib recorded. The motion of tho defendants was:‘denied, and tho Court, from memory of the ovldonco, pronounced - adcoroo In oach case, and . they word fully on-' rolled cud became final. From that decree tho‘do- ; fondants appeal, and assign tho refusal of tho' Court to stay tho rendition of iho decree until' tho ovidouco conld bo restored, as one of tho er rors in tho,case. And from tho vlow wo takoof tbo caso wo dcom it unnecessary to consider any' other. 1 . ' • According to tho ancient practice in tho 1 English Court of Chancery, the decree recited at length the entire pleadings ijn the case, and 1 the-substance of tho evidence contained in tho deposition. That' practice has Loon slightly modified in that Court in modern times, imt its decrees still retain fall recitals. In : our Courts of Chancery, tho practice hag permitted, but not required* suchrocitals, especially of the evidence.' The practice has obtained, neither-in Great" Britain "or this country, to s6t ; out tho depositions in full, hut simply to • rocito' tho ’ substance'• of tho evidonco they contain, pertinent to tho issue. As tho practice in chan- ’ eery has always required tho evidence to'bo in writing, or. if oral, to bo reduced to writing and preserved in tho record, it is apparent that the old practice of embodying it in tho decree -was ; not material, as it could at all times bo referred to for tho purpose of seeing Upon what tho do-' croo was baaed, and whether it was sustained by the evidence, and hence our •practice dispensed with embodying it in tho decree. But the prac tice as modified does not dispense with the abso lute necessity of preserving tho evidence in tho record. White v. Morrison.il Pcarco, 47 111., 413 Hill’s Oh. PI. 319, and numor ons other cases, rocognizo tho rule. OH AN APPEAL FEOSI THE DECREE ' each party hna tho right to roly upon the evi dence heard in tbo Court below, to tost the cor roctnoas of tbo conclusions at which tho Court has arrived. And in such a case tho finding of tho facts in tho dooroo will bo controlled by tho evidence in tho record, when u appears that it has all boon preserved The appellate court will look into tho record to see whether tho evidence warrants tho Court in its action in finding tho facts stated in tho decree,‘and If, from all tho evidence that was hoard.it appears tho Chancellor orred In tho finding of tho facts, tho Apellate Court will disregard tho findings, and will bo controlled by the evidence. Under tho ancient practice, tho decrees in these cases would havo contained a complete record of tho case, and from it alone the Apellate Court conldhavo dolormlnodwhother error had intervened. And if: tho evidence had boon nrosorvod In tho record, tho samo re sult would follow when a complete record is pre sented for consideration. .But, In tho position tho case now occupies, tho defendant has no power to show that tho facts found by tho Chan cellor iu tho decree ay> not warranted by tho IT IB AN UNDOUBTED BIGIIT, t0 bavo tho Judgment «.wi COre °i m a- party passed upon TWs ' m by n ai ? apeUato ~. court. vt^ 0 Constitution lias -guaranteed to mra. Nor can the courts by rulo of practice do- SnwS. 1 ! 1 il-?i On J? hfc ' or materially • impair its efficacy. And in all common law cases,- under our statute, it is tho duty of tho party ■ desiring to have tho case reviewed on tho' evidence, to preaorvp it in tho record, or tho presumption will bo indulged that tho Court below acted prop erly m its decision. Not so with a dooroo. as no presumption is iuduigod beyond the extent to which it is sustained by tho proof - appearing in tho record. Hence .it devolves unon tho party m whoso favor it • is ' render pa to preserve evidence that will Sustain tho docrco, or it must find that facts were proved that will sustain tho decree, or it will bo re versed.; , DID THE COURT DBLOW AOT PREMATURELY in rendering these decrees before tbo evidonbo was restored ? It is contended that inasmuch as tho Chancellor had beard tho evidence and had announced what his decision would bo, and had written out a statement of the grounds for tho decision, that, -it - must bo considered that the case waa finally decided, and nothing, • remained but tho - - formal matter of drawing and passing tho dooroo. This is manifestly not tho correct view of tho ones tiou. Under tho English practice, after tho hearing is had, tbo Chancellor pronounces his liooioo, and tbo Bcgistor taken minutes of it. and they, are usually read - over by bim to tbo parties; pr tboir solicitors, aud.copioo of snob minutes aro gmmroily applied for and furnished, to tbo parties. If not satisfactory, by reason of tboir .uncertainty, pr. that anything-boa boon omitted, and . tbo Boglotor refuses to • ■ correct thorn, application may bo made to tbo Court to correct them. After tbo minutes aro" settled, tbo dooroo is then drawn up by tbo Boglstor, and dolivorod to tbo party who demanded it. “The dooroo having boon returned, and an ofllco copy taken by tbo adverse party, tiro nort stop to bo taken Is to have It passed and entered, till which is done tbo dooroo is only inchoate."
