Notes of Cases Recently Decided, Which are of Interest to Our People, DIGESTED BY W. B. MARTIN. (Exclusively for Vlrglnlan-Pllot.) BANK OF FAYETTEVILLE V. N1MOCKS. Supreme Court of North Carolina. A*.ril 4, 1891?. SURRENDER OF COLLATERAL DE? POSITED TO SECURE A NOTE, WITHOUT THE CONSENT OF THE ACCOMMODATION ENDORSER, RELEASES THE ENDORSER PRO TANTO, OR DISCHARGES HIM. This was an action on a note for $3,000 executed by defendant Nimocks to the defendant MeArthur, and by the latter endorse/l to plaintiff. MeArthur was nn accommodation endorser <>f the note, and the nlalntlff bank had held certain collateral for Us payment, which amounted to more than the bal? ance due on It. several credits having been put upon the note. The plaintiff, without notice to, or the consent of the endorser, surrendered the collateral without inaking any credit therefor on the $3,000 note. The collateral surren? dered was solvent and ample to pay the balance due on tno note. There was ;l Judgment for defendant and plaintiff appealed. The court says: The plaintiff contends that the so called Slocomb note which was execut? ed by Nimocks as principal and Slo comb as surety, was placed In the bank by Nimocks merely for collection. In nearly nil transactions there are cer? tain Inherent probabilities, which are Strongly marked In the case at bar. It seems scarcely reasonable to suppose that the maker of a note, remaining still Its owner, should place his own note In bank, to be collected from him? self, and placed to his own credit. It scorns more probable that the surety was w illing to indorse for only a thous? and dollars, and that the maker, need? ing n greater sum. was willing to re? lieve his principal Indorser pro tan to by the deiioslt as collateral security of the smaller note. This view was un? doubtedly taken by the Jury. Cases are often complicated by the testimony of witnesses, who, however honest may be their intentions, testify to assumed facin which are in reality merely con? clusions of law. Viewing the Slocomb note ns collateral security to the note in suit, its surrender to Slocomb with? out the consent of the defendant ope? rated as n release pro tanto; and, us it was for an .amount greater than the balance due on the note in suit, the Judgment must ba afiirincd. ADAMS V. UNION It. CO. Supreme Court of Rhode Island, January !?, 1809. WHERE A TOWN GRANTS A STREET IIA II.WAY A FRANCHISE LIMITING 'I'll'.: RATE OF FARM, A PERSON EJECTED FROM A CAR FOR REFUSING TO PAY MORE THAN 'fill-: RATE, MAY AVAIL HIMSELF id'' THE CONTRACT, IN A SI'IT FOR ASSAULT AND BAT? TERY. This was an action for assault and battery by Adams for being ejected from .a car of the defendant company. He paid his fare of five cents and when he changed cars, asked the conductor for a recelp't or transfer, which was re? fused him. He then got on another car of the company, telling the conductor that he had paid his fare on the other car, and refusing to pay another fare was elected. The town had granted tin exclusive franchise to the company, limiting the fare from one point to any other point on defendant's lines to five rents. There was a judgment for plain? tiff and defendant appealed. The court says: The only question is the one which has lieen chiefly pressed In argument ?whether the plaintiff can avail him? self as an Individual, of the right to claim the 'benefit of the provisions of that contract in this action. The con? tract In question was made for the ben? efit of passengers using the defendant's cars. The town can hardly show dam? ages for its breach, and, there-fore. If the people for whose benefit It was made cannot recover for Its breach, no one can. True, the town might take steps to avoid tho contract and stop the road for failure to perform condi? tions, but, in so doing. It would cut off the privileges of many to redress the wrong of one. This would ncitheV be a reasonable nor tin adequate remedy. It must have been intended to be a contract for the benefit of the public, upon -which passengers could rely, and for breach of which they couhi seek redress, otherwise it is a contract of lit? tle obligation and force. It Is to be nr?ted that this case Is not brought upon the contract. The plaintiff sues for trespass. The defendant pleads Jus? tification upon the ground that the plaintiff wus ejected fur refusing to pay a "lawful fare." The evidence of ?the contract shows that the provision "The fare ? ? shall not exceed live rents." fixes such fare as the maximum lawful fare between the points In ques? tion In this case. The plaintiff having paid this fare, has paid all that he could bo required to pay under the con? tract, which, being for the hen. lit of passengers, a class of which he was one, "was for his Iieneflt. and of which ho could take advantage under the principles stated above. We think, therefore, that the plea, of justification is not sustained. Affirmed. We are now at work making College and Sehool Medals. We will save you money If your order is placed with us.

In Providence, where one was a drug clerk nnd the other two apprentices on bicycles f< r the Line Star State, where they iiad read of the wild ami daring ranch life of the cowboys and of Indian lighting. It was their intention to no to Texas and become great Indian lighters nnd wealthy ranch owners.
