Mr. Noyes replied that there waa no such rule of law an bat when the defendant introduced new matter the plain U was entitled to put in e muter affidavits; besides, nothing ad been introduced exoe|a what the plaintiff wh bound > anticipate as likely to arise. The act which the plaintiff night lo i toy appropriated $160,000, tho prooe<>de or the resent Quarantine property, to the payment of the eiimn iturei, and the presumption on the face of the act was oat the property on the pruaent station was adequate to reel Uie new ene.

The (Yxirt?* Kb regard to the right to put In now afflhrrM, I hive frequently allowed It myaelf. It depend!on he discretion of the J idge. If he think* It necessary that sow sAldnvita be put in, he will allow It. In this cue I do not think it necessary; it would only cause delay. Mr. tdarke understood it to be recognised n a role that where the counter affidavit! Introduced uow matter Ui<-y had a right to reply to them, and certainly If ihe question is to Ihe value of the Qusnuillno location was material , titer ought to hare that right. However, ho would bow mine Court and proceed. The act uf March 6 attainted hree Com missionary with power, Unit, to subs* a ?ito fur t permanent Quarantine hospital, and to remove the promt hospital from Its situation; secondlyr to provide tern nrary accommodation upon or near Sandy Ileok. It was ouceded tint t- e Cbiwuissioners were aiding under tho 1st auction of the lot. Now the nth section, providing list all contractu should he given, at public amnion to Ilia i* r*l bidder, wn. applicable to the 21st as well as to the ther srctloas. If so, then the Commissioners were pro reding in a palpable violuion of the spirit and provisions I the set In giving out the contracts for temporary quar ntme alter Are or six days notice, and a private contract jo. The art was obligatory u mn them to put out lie contract to the lowest bidder, "so far as it nold safety and properly be doue." Ilo undermod tlie counsel hi a-vme that tln-ie words brew the subject open to the control of the brnminioners, and that they had a right to dispense with lie mode and form prescribed in th<- uth section. He did ot interpret the spirit of Un- act. What w as the object of be ins< rtlon of the frth section ? What < vil did the regis. Sure reck to guard at ainrt, or what Hoc of duty did they cek to point out to the Commissioner* y H was evident bat the legislature intended to Ue up the commissioners a far as |siasiiiio from exercising any discretion wmnb Dcld pre.tudice the rights of the Mate. The*., i ommH uiors were Intended to have no discretion hoynud the seleoow of Quarantine and of the plans for building, and tho rglslnture evtoently Intcoded that the contract*should tie nt up at public audi ui as provided in the tMli section, fhy 1 liecauso that was the t>e*t and most suitable mode w putting them out. If the construction which Uie counsel >ut on the Mli section were cornet the legislature mirot n well have omliled it altogether. It would be absurd, (e apprehended it was the duty of the Uourt In giro sm.li roiMtrufltion to the statute as would give force and effect ? It If tlie object of the Is-ginlalure was to have Um coorart i put up at pubHr auction ?o as to protect the public Ight* and prevent the Commissioners from showing fit 'oiiUmii then II won the duty of die Court lo ml ouch a con?tru<Uon upon the al ex to give i effect aa far a* pcevlbie.
