effect. Where an application for leave to appeal in forma pauperis having
been presented and rejected, a regular appeal was subsequently filed, but
after the period of limitation had expired.

Held that the payment of the court-fee on the regular appeal could not be
held to relate back to the memorandum of appeal which accompanied the
application for leave to appeal as a pauper, BO as to convert that memoran-
dum of appeal into a good appeal within time Until the regular appeal
was filed there was nothing before the Court which it could treat, even
provisionally, as a memorandum of appeal. BlSHNATH PRASAD v.

Pauper Suit.

Suit in forma pauperis Appeal Right of Government to appeal in respect of
Court fee en portion of plaintiff's claim dismissed Civ. Pro. Code,
ss. 411, 412. In ^ "uit in forma pavpzris the District Judge decreed the
plaintiff's claim in rt and dismissed it in part, but omitted to make any
provision for piym. ;,c to Government of the court-fee on the portion
which was dismissed. The Secretary of State, not having been a party to
the litigation in the Court below, then preferred an appeal in respect of
the court fees on that portion of the plaintiff's claim which had been dis-
missed.

Held that such an appeal would lie ; though the more suitable procedure
would have been for the Government to have applied, through the Collec-
tor, to the Court of first instance to review its judgment and to repair the
omissiou in its decree. SECRETARY OF STATE v. BHAGWANTI BlBI,

Possessory Suit.

(1) Possession Ejectment Suit in ejeclinint on a possessory title Act I

I Specific Relief Act, s. 9. Per EDGE, O.J., STRAIGHT aud TYRRELL, JJ.
(MAHMOOD, J., diisentisnte).

Section 9 of the Specific Belief Act is intended to provide a special sum-
mary remedy for a person who, being, whatever bis tile, in possession of
immoveable property, is ousted therefrom,

That section does not debar a person who has been ousted by a trespasser
from the possession of immoveable property to which he has merely a pos-
sessory title, from bringing a suit in ejectment on his possessory title after
the lapse of siz months from the date of his dispossession.

Per MAHMOOD, J.

A person who is suing upon a merely possessory title to recover possession
of immoveable property against a person who has ousted him must bring
his suit, if at all, under s. 9 of Act I of 1877, and therefore within siz
months from the date of his dispossession. WALI AHMAD KHAN v.
AJUDHIA KANDU, 13 A. 537 = 11 A.W.N. (1891) 196 340

(2) Suit for recovery of possession of immoveable property Limitation Adverse

possession Burden of prcof-Act XV of 1877 (Limitation Act), s. 28.
Where a suit for the recovery of possession of imrnovaable property is re-
sisted by a plea of adverse possession for more than twelve years, the ques-
tion of limitation becomes a question of title, and it lies upon the plaintiff
in the first instance to give satiscfatory j>rima facie evidence of his posses-
sion within twelve years of the euit. JAFAR HUSAIN v. MASHQ ALI, 14
A. 193 = 12 A.W.N. (1892) 55 ... 494

(3) Practice Suit for exclusive possession Decree for joint possession, circum-

stances under which such decree miy be granted. Although under certain
circumstances in a suit for exclusive possession of immoveable property a
decree for joint possession may be given, nevertheless such a decree should
not be given unless the plaintiff asks for it and the evidence shows that
he is entitled to it. ANTU SINGH v. MANDIL SINGH, 15 A, 412 = 13 A.

Pre-emption.

(1) Act XIX of 1873 i North-Western Provinces Land Revenus Act), as. 166,168
and 188 Act XII of 1881 (North-Western Provinces Bent Act), s. 177 In-
terpretation of statutes-Meaning ol the terms "Patti" and "Patti of a mahal
Pre-emption. The expression " patti of a Mahal " as used in s. 188 of
the North-Western Provinces Land Revenue Act (XIX of 1873) means a
division of a mahal distinct from the share of an individual oo sharer.
The right of pre-emption, therefore, which is given by the above-named
section is not ererciseable on the sale merely of the share of an individual
CD-sharer not amounting to such a division of a mahal.
Moreover the provisions of s. 188 of Act XIX of 1873 do not apply to a sale
under s. 168 of the same act of land other than that in respect of which
the arrears which it is sold to satisfy accrued.

Hence where the share of a co-sharer in an imperfect pattidari village, not
being the land in respect of which the arrears of rent, for the satisfaction
of which the said share is sold, are due, is sold under the previsions of
s. 177 of the North- Western Provinces Rent Act (XII of 1881), no right
of pre-emption can be claimed in respect of such sale.
So held by EDGE, G. J. and YOUNG, J.

MAHMOOD. J., contra. There being no statutory definition of the word
"patti" that word must be taken in its ordinary acceptation, and in that
acceptation it means the share of a pattidar, whether such share amounts
to a definite division of a Mahal or not. The exigencies of the law of
pre-emption require that in s. 188 of Act XIX of 1873 the word " patti "
should be construed in its broader signification as equivalent to any
share of a pattidar.

The words of s. 168 which provide that land sold under that section is to be
proceeded against " as if it were the land on account of which the revenue
is due under the provisions of this Act " render the incidents of sales under
B. 166, including pre-emption, applicable to sales under s. 163, with the
exception thar in such case only the defaulter's interest in the land
sold passes by the sale.

Hence a right of pre-emption would accrue under s. 188 in respect of the
compulsory sale of any share of a cc-sbarer though such share did not
amount to a " patti " iu the sense of a definite division of a mahal. BAIJ
NATH v. SITAL SINGH, 13 A. 221=11 A.W.N. (1891)68 ... ill

(2) Civil Procedure Code, s, 214 Decree for pre-emption conditioned on piyment
within fixed time Omission to state consequence of non-payment Limitation,
Where in a suit for pre-emption the decree, while decreeing the plaintiff's
. right to pre-emption upon payment of the pre-emptive price within one
month from the date of the decree, omitted to state what would be the
effect on the plaintiff's suit of non-payment within the prescribed period:
Held that the plaintiff unless he had paid the pre-emptive price before the
expiry of the said month, could not enforce his decree for pre-emption.

<4) Wajib ul-arz, ccnstruction of Muhammadan Law, In a suit for pre-emption
based on a wajib-ul-arz the material words of the wajib-ul-arz under the
heading of " custom j>for pre-emption " were as follows : Attbe time a
proprietary share is transferred a right of purchase will vest, first, in a
co-sharer of the same family, and then in the other oo sharers of the
village in preference to a stranger, provided that the same price is paid by
the co-sharer as is offered by the stranger."

Held that these words were intended to define a special custom of pre-
emption, and did not merely mean that the custom of pre-emption

Held, tbat such plaintiff cculd appeal frcm euch decree after the period pre-

Where a decree declaring a right to partition has not been given effect to
by the parties proceeding to partition in accordance with it, and the
decree has become, by lapse of time or otherwise, unenforoible, it is com-
petent to the parties, or any of them, if they still continue to be interested
in the joint property, to bring a fresh suit for a declaration of their right
to partition. Such a suit will not be barred by reason of the former decree
for partition, though that decree may operate as res judicata in respect of
any claim or defence which was, or might have been, raised in the suit in
which it was passed.

If a Revenue Oourt in disposing of an application for partition determines a
question of title, it must, in so doing, act in conformity with the provisions
of s. 113 of Act XIX of 1873. If it disposes of the application otherwise
than in the manner contemplated by s. 113, its proceedings are ultra vires
