Rule Ii It Is Not Allowa Ble Both to Plead and to Demur to the Same Niatter


RULE II IT IS NOT ALLOWA BLE BOTH TO PLEAD AND TO DEMUR TO THE SAME NIATTER. The second rule to procure the singleness or unity of issue, is that the pleader cannot both plead and demur to the same matter. This rule does not extend to prohibit one from pleading to one distinct matter and demurring to another. So the statute authorizing- several pleas discussed in the last section, does not allow pleading and demurring to the same matter.
