The real party in interest statute was passed in Missouri in 1849 as a part of the practice act. Before that date two other statutes dealing with the question of parties plaintiff had been passed: a statute abolishing the straw plaintiff in actions of ejectment, and a statute providing that the assignee of a bond or note might sue in his own name. These statutes will be considered first.
