Appellant was not liable for the payment of the Varney judgment. He was not primarily liable for the payment of the judgment rendered upon the bond against him, the duty of the milk company being to return the property or make payment as it had agreed to do, and thereby hold its surety harmless. The case is one which demands the application of the equitable doctrine of subrogation, and appellant is entitled, as against the receivership, to the same remedies that the original creditor might have. It is urged by appellee that the question of appellant's surety ship has not been adjudicated. The answer to this objection is that the right which it is sought to enforce is an equitable one and equally available whether the question of suretyship has or has not been adjudicated in the statutory manner. Thomas et al. v. Stewart et al., 117 Ind. 50, 53, 18 N. E. 505, 1 L. R. A. 715.
It remains, therefore, only to inquire what right the judgment creditor held. An execution operates as a lien on the personal property of the judgment debtor, liable to be seized on it from the time that it comes to the hands of the officer. Burns' Ann. St. 1901, § 1576. Such property taken in execution may be returned to the execution defendant upon the delivery of a written undertaking, with sufficient surety to the effect that the property shall be delivered to the officer at a time and place named in the undertaking, to be sold according to law, or for the payment to the officer of the value thereof. Burns' Ann. St. 1901, $$ 756, 1582. Upon the condition of such bond being broken, the execution plaintiff may prosecute his remedy thereon or by alias execution, cause the same or other property, to be levied on, or having failed in either remedy may resort to the other. Burns' Ann. St. 1901, § 1583. The issuance of an alias writ upon the return of an execution by the officer that he has a delivery bond, is made obligatory, and under it the property first levied upon may be sold in the same manner as on the first execution. Burns' Ann. St. 1901, § 1578. The effect of the delivery bond is to entitle the defendant to the custody of the goods. It does not operate to discharge any lien or right of the judgment creditor. Bick et al. v. Lang et al., 15 Ind. App. 503, 44 N. E. 555; Gass et al. v. Williams et al., 46 Ind. 253; Dunn v. Crocker, 22 Ind. 324; Jaeger v. Stoelting, 30 Ind. 341.

[Ed. Note.--For cases in point, see vol. 3, Cent. Dig. Appeal and Error, 3262.] 2. RAILROADS - KILLING STOCK - RIGHT OF WAY-FAILURE TO FENCE-COMPLAINT.
In an action against a railway for the death of plaintiff's cow, plaintiff alleged that the grantor of plaintiff's lessor contracted to convey a right of way to the railroad company by a written contract containing a condition precedent requiring the railroad company to build a sufficient fence along the right cf way before taking possession of the land, that such grantor subsequently sold the adjoining land to plaintiff's lessor by a deed conveying all rights and covenants running with the remaining unsold portion and that plaintiff had leased the land from such purchaser, that the railroad company failed to fence as required by the covenant in its contract, and negligently left paints and oils on its right of way accessible to plaintiff's cow, from which she drank and died. Held, that the cause of action so alleged was not founded on the deed to the railroad company, which was not alleged to contain the covenant to fence, but was founded on the written contract, and was therefore sufficient. 3._APPEAL-EXCEPTIONS TO CONCLUSIONS OF LAW-SCOPE.
Where an exception was reserved to the court's conclusion of law at the time such conclusion was stated, such exception was sufficient to raise any question which might be presented thereon. 4. TRIAL-FINDINGS OF COURT-EXCEPTIONS -EFFECT.
An exception to the court's conclusion that plaintiff was entitled to recover from the defendant a certain sum of money operated as an admission that all the facts had been fully and correctly found. 5. COVENANTS-COVENANTS RUNNING WITII LAND-RAILROAD RIGHT OF WAY-AGREEMENT TO FENCE.
A covenant in a contract for the sale of land to a railroad for a right of way, by which the railroad agreed, before taking possession of the land, to construct a sufficient fence along the same as a condition precedent, operated as a covenant running with the land, for the failure to perform which the railroad was liable in damages to a tenant of a subsequent grantee of the adjoining land.
[Ed. Note.--For cases in point, see vol. 14, Cent. Dig. Covenants, $ 78.] 6. SAME-DEEDS-COVENANTS.
