Technical Points the Alleged
Usurer Was Not Convicted.
Judge Scott to-day gave a decision in tbe
case of Myer B. Newman, charged with
being an unlicensed pawnbroker, dismiss
ing tbe defendant. Be said that according
to the evidence there was but one piece of
property which ta any way came into the
defendant's pceseNSlon at the time of the
loan, and that was purely a technical
possession by virtue ot bis taking a storage
receipt for n carriage which had been de
posited at McDermott'a for repairs.
All other property raroc into his posses
slonaftertheloansnadbeenrnadQ,andontbe foreclosure ot a cftatteLmortgage. In no
senso could that be considered a deposit as
pledge to secure the loan, Inordertu bring
a case within the pawnbrokers' law the
property most be deposited as a pledge for
the (security ot the loan.
No evidence was produced to show that
tbe defendant engaged in any such busi
ness, and tbe case waa therefore dismissed
