as to throw upon an indorsee the onus of proving that

he gave consideration for it. We may here also refer to The stat. 8 & 9 Vict. c. 109, appears to have effected the case of Knight v. Chambers, (1 Jur., N. S., part 1, p. a material alteration in the doctrines of law which go- 525). That was an action for money paid ; the defendant vern that extensive class of contracts known as “ gaming pleaded that the money was paid in respect of certain contracts.” After repealing former statutes which had differences in the price of shares in a public company, declared such contracts to be illegal, it is enacted, by to be paid by the defendant under wagering contracts, sect. 18, that “ all contracts and agreements, whether contrary to the 8 & 9 Vict.c. 109, which the plaintiff had by parol or in writing, by way of gaming or wagering, made for the defendant with third persons. The Court shall be null and void, and that no suit shall be brought of Common Pleas held, that as the plea did not negative or maintained in any court of law or equity for reco- the plaintiff's request, and the act made such contracts vering any sum of money or valuable thing alleged to only void, and not illegal, the plea did not disclose any be won upon any wager.” There is a proviso appended defence. The case was likened by the Chief Justice to to this section, whereby “any subscription or contri- a payment by the plaintiff, at the defendant's request, bution, or agreement to subscribe or contribute, for or of purchase money for goods above the value of 101., the towards any plate, prize, or sum of money to be awarded contract of purchase being void under the Statute of to the winner of any lawful game,” is excepted from Frauds; and Maule, J., said, “ Looking at the whole the operation of the act. One question arises with re- record, it appears that the plaintiff, at the request gard to the enacting part of the section, as to the dis of the defendant, paid for him certain money which tinction between illegal and merely void considerations. the defendant was not legally bound to pay, the If money is paid or goods handed over on account of a contract he had entered into being merely void.” wager not within the proviso, can it be recovered back? To the same effect is Knight v. Fitch, (1 Jur., N. S., If it be a voluntary payment, or voluntary delivery, not part 1, p. 526), which was an action for work made under any mistake of facts, it would seem that it done, commission, and money paid. The defendant eould not be recovered, according to a well-established pleaded that the plaintiff was a stock and share rule, which is independent of the legality or illegality of broker, and as such made certain contracts for the the consideration. But supposing elements to exist in defendant by way of wagering, contrary to the statute, the case which take it out of the operation of this rule, under the semblance of pretended sales respecting the can the parties still be said to be in pari delicto, so as to future market price of certain public and other stock, be precluded from having recourse to the pure fountain &c., whereby the defendant was to receive or pay the of justice ? On the one hand, it may be urged that it differences between the price of the said stock on the was not the intention of the Legislature to legalise such days on which the contracts were made, and the price transactions, and that by rendering them void it has on certain future days, according as the price had bein effect declared them to be against the policy of the come higher or lower, and that the causes of action law, so as to make them in one sense illegal. On the arose in respect thereof.
