Counsel having cases on same day calendar in First and

Second Departments In the event of counsel having cases upon the day calendars of the Appellate Divisions of the First and Second Departments on the same day such counsel shall attend the court in that department in which his case stands nearest the head of such day calendar; and his case upon the calendar of the other department will be held until the argument of the case is finished in the department in which he is first required to attend.

In the event of counsel having cases upon each of the day calendars of the said departments upon the same day, which stand equally distant from the heads of the respective day calendars, such counsel shall attend court in the First Department.

Rules regulating the procedure upon applications for natural

Appeals from Municipal Court

specified in such application, the application will be dismissed without prejudice to a fresh application.

If he appear and for any reason the hearing is not completed upon the stated day aforesaid, the court may complete such hearing and take final action upon any subsequent day to which the matter shall be publicly adjourned by the direction of the justice presiding. (As amended Dec. 10, 1909.)

Appeals from the Municipal Court All appeals from judgments rendered in the Municipal Court of the city of New York, in districts embraced within the Second Judicial Department, will be heard by the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court for said department. No special calendar of such appeals will hereafter be made up, but they will be placed upon the general calendar of enumerated cases according to the date of the appeal, and will be treated in all respects not herein specially provided for like other appeals to the Appellate Division from courts other than the Supreme Court. Either party may bring such an appeal on for hearing by a notice of argument, served at least eight days prior to the beginning of the term. Upon the return day of said notice the respondent may, upon the default of his adversary, take a judgment of affirmance or an order dismissing the appeal as the justice of the case may require; and it shall not be necessary to make a special motion for the dismissal of an appeal, except for failure to file the return. In case of a failure of any justice of the Municipal Court to make return to this court, as required by section 317 of chapter 580, Laws of 1902, it shall be the duty of the appellant forthwith to apply to this court, under the provisions of sections 3055 and 3056, to compel such return.

The appeal shall be heard upon the original return or

Sales of real estate; Kings County

a certified copy thereof, and each party shall file five copies of any brief or points which he may desire to submit at least one day before the argument. (In effect Feb. 1, 1905.)

Sales of real estate, Kings County All referees or officers hereafter making sale of real estate, situate in the county of Kings, or of an interest or estate therein, pursuant to any judgment, decree, order or direction of the court, shall, in addition to complying with the requirements of section 1678 of the Code, cause to be published with the notice of sale, a diagram of the property to be sold or in which an interest is to be sold, showing the street or avenue upon which such property is located, its street or avenue number, if any, and specifying the number of feet to the nearest cross street or avenue, and also, where such sale is made to satisfy any lien or charge upon the real property sold, the approximate amount of such lien or charge shall be stated in a note annexed to such notice of sale; and where there are taxes, assessments, or other liens upon the said property which are to be allowed to the purchaser out of the purchase money, or which are to be paid by the referee, the referee or officer making such sale shall also state, at the foot of such notice, the approximate amount of such charge or lien.

An unintentional error, however, in such diagram or in the amount of the lien or charge for which the property shall be sold, or the amount of such taxes or other lien to be allowed to the purchaser upon the sale, shall not invalidate the sale nor authorize the court to relieve the purchaser or to order a new sale.
