The lltlcrttlon OTer the Bedell cheek U I am
told not ret endeth The Bank ot the Btate of
Now York havlnc bon adjndeod by Ute Court I
ot Apotals to be liable to Bhlpman Barlow
Lftroofia k Cboato for tho 198000 which It
hftd charged ocnlnst thorn upon gonuln
checks of the firm frauduhntly endorsed br I
tholr clerk Bodtlk boa paid thom th money
vrtthIntorMt from Oct 31838 the day It was
demanded and the local costs of the suit
Th banklnturi has demanded from the
other bunk which collected from It the money
on tho cheokji ho amount which each one ro
c lutorest on each check from till
day It passed through tho Clearing House
Qno of these bnnks the Phonli has prompt t
ly responded and has settled the claim
twalnst It by tho parmeut ot the full
amount ot principal due with a pro
> ortlon l8 share ot the Interest allowed to
Bhlpmaaaud hU partners and about I7SOO of
lie costs l and counsel foes incurred by tbs
Bank ot tho State ot New York Tho other
bftnlis I am Informed have decided to stand
suit from tho Bank of the State of New York
and though I cannot neo that they have the
host of a chanco ot succeeding as to the prin
cipal of tho sum demanded of thorn I question
whothor thor can be forced to par more Inter
est thnn wr < t Dild to the Bhlpman flrm While
thotoforo I rocrot tholr decision as a matter
of morwntllo honor 1 shall watch tho event of
tho contcs thoy purposa making with npectal
rotVrouco to the starting point of the Interest
which thor will bo condemned to pay The
sum Involved U about 15 per cent on the prin
cipal and come between 15000 and 20000
The Bank of the Htato of New York in claim
Int Interest from tho day It paid each cheer
bus one previous case at least in Its favor
as n urocodont In November 1874 the Corn
Exchange Batik paid to tho Nassu Bank
through tho Cltmrlng Mouse upon a forged en
dorsement Cn cheok for tI9000 and fifteen
months elapsed before tho forgery was dotoot
od Knit being then brought by the Corn Ex
change Bank to recover the amount of the
check the Court of Appeals gave judgment In
its favor and allowed it Interest the Amount
of tho chock from tho day tho Nnesaa
Bank recolvod It If this case has settled the
law for all limo to come then the Bank of the
Stato of Now York can collect its full claim
But tho point was not argued nor the atten
tion of tho Court in nny way called to It and It
it is still open to discussion a great deal may
be said it rooms to mo on tho other side from
a local point of view as well as from that ot
natural justice
My inquiry Into the subject has led me to the
very curious origin oi the word interest it
self as signifying the compensation paid for
the uso of money Anciently the term em
ployed was use or usury meaning not
unlawful or excessive Interest but any Inter
est whatever Indeed until a very recent
period notes wore drawn In New England and
for all that I know in other parts ot tho coun
try also payable with use Instead of with
Interest Now this taking of usury or accept
ing money for the uso of money was strictly
forbidden to tho Jews by tim Mosaic law In
transactions between themselves and It was
only permitted in dealings with strangers
Christianity retained V the prohibition and
taught that It was a sin fora man to accept any
kind of roward for a loan of monty In the
Merchant ot Venice Shakespeare makes tho
Christian Antonio vilify the taking of inter
est to the Jew Shylock and meet his reason
able nrgnment that money may as righteously
be paid for the biro of money as for the bite ot
neT other kind ot property bV denouncing him
as a devil and a villain In the course of the
discussion the word interest is employed br
both parties as synonymous with usury
without a suggestion ot the modern distinc
tion between the two showing that they had In
Shaknspoaros day tho same meaning
The religious condemnation ottha taking of
hro for money whi dnTlnsXtbe early ago
of Christianity owing to the limited extent of
trade and commerce produced little incon
venience proved to be very injurious BO loon I
the advance of civilization and the develop
ment of the worlds wealth mod It profitable
for men to borrow capital for the carrying out
of their business undertakings Borrowers
were compelled elthor to resort to Jews like
Bhrlook who had no scruples of conscience to
prevent their exacting tho highest rates they
could get or else to eqpally unscrupulous
Christians Both required payment as modern
usurers do not only of what their loans were
reasonably worth but of an additional amount
to compensate them for the odium they in
curred by their transactions This at
longtb set the ecclesiastical authorities to
scrutinizing doctrine on the lubjot wIth
a view to discovering a method by which good
Christians might conscientiously compel in
money lending with the Jews and with Chris
tian extortioners The conclusion they CAme
to was that wbllo payment for the hire ot
money ought not to bo exacted the lender was
justly entitled to compensation for tho profits
he might have made by using It himself and
which ho lost by lending It The borrower was
therefore conscience bound to pay not ns
or usury for the loan made to him but dam
ages for keeping the money out of Its owner
hands Tbe law term for such damages was
id ouod interest or as it is still expressed in
the French law interest damages dom
magoslntorfits hence came br abbreviation
our modern Interest which has entirely
supplanted the old usury leaving still
attached to the latter word the odium
whIch onoe attended all Interest The
rates of hire for mono were therefore fixed by
law and usury ultimately denoted only the
exaction of more than legal interest as it does
to this day But though when Shakespeare
wrote the Merchant of Venice the taking ot
Interest bad boon lawful for bait a century the
ancient prejudice against it had as we see not
yet died out and a certain obloquy followed
those who practised It More than this it was
many years before tho courts could bring
themselves to allow interest in oases where it
had not been expressly promised and then
they did It only upon the same theory aa that
upon which It was first conceded namely as
damages for the wrong done to the owner of
tbe principal for not paring it to him on the dar
when it was due
Anyone who is curious to trace the evolution
of the law upon tho subject 01 allowing Interest
aa a matlorof damages where there II no con
tract expressed or Implied for its payment
will find the subject pretty thoroughly dis
cussed In a case decided In our old Court ol
Errors as late as the rear 1835 In that cse
the ogent of a manufacturing company bad
advanced mane to it from time to time to
enable It to carry on its business and bad
boon partially repnld IS the goods were sold
After his death his representatives claimed
not only tho balance of principal duo to him
but also the excess of interest upon the sums
advanced by him over that upon his colles
tlons from sales Nowadays thor would seem
to Lo no doubt of tho justice of the claim but
at that time It was not at all clasr and the
court allowed It only after an elaborate dis
cussion1 anti with considerable hesitation It
was bown by the counsel for the company
that in the early English cases Interest where
it was not expressly promised was added only
in the character of damages because tae
principal had been unlawfully and wilfully re
tained against the consent of the owner or
Where tho debtor had made money br tho
uso oOt > for bis own advantage Th more
possession ol m6hcy created neither an Im
plied agreement nor a legal liability to pay hire
fonts use and It was loft to the discretion of
the court to Include Interest in Us judgment
according to circumstances
There Is no question that tb banks which
collected the disputed checks from the Bank
of tho 6tte of New York should bar re
turned the money to tbat bank as soon as it
was demanded of them just as the bank should
have credited the Amount back to the firm
which drew the checks as soon H was request
ed to do It Ilenca upon fbe prloclpl ot the
case I have mentioned thj Bfttik of the Btatsj
of New York properly 1 r4I to par interest from
the day its customers demanded ont the bal
JuIce lawfully du to them And on the > lam
principle the bank which received the money
should pay Interest from the dar the return of I
it was demanded from them They hav failed
in their duty and must be punished In dam I
ages for the failure But when It comet to the
question of Interest for the period before
the demand was made on them and
during which neither did the Bank ot the State
ot New York sustain any loss by the nonpay
ment ot the money nor the banks retaining It
make a profit by the use oUt a different result
seems to be logical notwithstanding the prece
dent made In the case of the Corn Exchange
Bank check Itll 1 still doubtful therefore
whether the Bank of the State of New York
unless the Court of Appeals assumes that tho
law was fixed by the Corn Exchange Bankoase
will recover back more Interest that It has
been compelled to pay
