its provision. He said that his under
ataiidinif of the law was that . only
tboxe who received more than 10 per
cent Interest on personal credit were
amenable to the law. If this conten
tion ia right, he Bald, pawnbrokers
would be eliminated, as they lend

.The question was raised because of the
fact that In the title of the act pawn
brokers are specifically let out of com

; while In the body of the act no men
tion la made of them.
.The first trial under the new law
