AGENCY.
1. SALE OF REAL ESTATE SECRET PROFITS — UNAUTHORIZED Ex-

PENDITURES BY BROKERS.- In this action to recover secret profits,
the defendants, without plaintiff's knowledge, having caused the
title to the property to be vested in their agent under a pur-
ported sale at a given price and thereafter sold the property
at an increased price, but having accounted to plaintiff only
for the lesser amount, after deducting their commission and
the expenses, and there having been no evidence showing any
authority in defendants to make alterations and repairs, they hav.
ing been employed only to negotiate a sale, the trial court properly
refused to credit them with amounts claimed to have been expended
by them in making alterations and repairs or with a commission

on the sale at the increased price.—Rempel F. Kells, 81.
2. UNLAWFUL ACTS — INTENT PRESUMPTION. In such action, the

act of the defendants having been unlawful, it is presumed to

have been done with an unlawful intent.-Id.
3. MORTGAGE-WRITTEN AUTHORITY.-The authority of an agent to

make any mortgage for his principal (and a trust deed given as
a pledge for the payment of money is in legal effect a mortgage)
