Hearing Before a Commissioner

 
     Mr. Jake F. Newell and Miss Lucy Ray, of Charlotte, were here Wednesday taking depositions in the case of A.K. Loftin, of Guilford County, vs. David J. Craig, of Statesville.  A.K. Loftin brought suit in Guilford Superior Court against David J. Craig for alleged usury.  Mr. Geo. B. Nicholson, of Statesville, was appointed commissioner to examine Defendant Craig.
     The plaintiff was represented by Mr. Jake F. Newell and Judges Furchess and Coble; Messrs. Armfield & Turner represented the defendant.  Mr. Nicholson held that the defendant was not compelled to disclose anything that would subject him to a penalty or forfeiture.  Plaintiff excepted to the ruling and the matter was referred back to the court.
