Justico Frenr writes tho unani

va. J. II. Hare. Tho law is thus
"Our btatuto of UBury does not

though they aro lumped together
in tho note sued on.
"Payments made on account of

Defendant gavo plaintiff a note
for i3() payable six months after
its date, and afterward made pay

Plaintiff owod for the balanoe of
$50 and interest from January 18,
189G. Evidence ehowod .that tho
noto was given for a loan of 8100
and interest S30, or at the rate of
5 percont a month, Tho District
Court gave judgment for the de
fondant, Hare, on tho ground
that the law said uo action could
bo maintained for tho rocovery of
interest bighor than two and a
half porcont a month.
Tho Supromo Court dooidos
that tho paymonts mado by tho
defendant should be applied to
the legal port of tho dobt, and
therefore tho plaintiff is entitled
to only $20. It reverses the judg
ment of, tho Distriat Magistrate,
remitting tho case to him for
entry of judgment in accordance
with this opinion. Do Bolt for
plaintiff; Ohillingworth for de
fondant. The Supremo Court unanimous
ly affirms tho judgmont of tho Dis
trict Court in Maty Achi vs. F. A.
Sovorin, for restitution of proper
ty, five dollars damogea and costs,
holding, "A photographer has no
lien upon pictures loft with him
from which to make enlarged
copies, for the value of the conios."
Iho opinion is by Justice Frear.
It is found that tho law relied on
by defendant was not applicable,
because his labor was oxpeuded in
making other pictures, and not in
tho improvement of tbo picturos
from which tho enlirgeraonU wero
made. An authority is quoted
