4. Grant ya, Morris, from jn ortnamp-
What constitutes usury is a question
of law upon lacts admitted or found,
hence it is not terror to refuse to submit
an issue "whether there was usury or
not" to the jury. The mere entry of an
usurious claim in an account is neither
a "taking, receiving or charging, witn-.
in the meaning of the act, which im
plies more to be done to the loss or det
riment of the debtor than the mere pre
sentation of aurUegal claim which is
neither recognized nor paid.

time of election ..for 1878 to August,
leaving the term of office to; commence

a sheriff into office who gives only one
of his bonds, but this can be remedied
by his subsequently giving the others,
