The lower court held for Mr.
The record in the case showed
that Mr. Rowe at one time conduc
ted a small bank at Nehalem, and
served as treasurer of the port
district. The bank failed in 1921
and it was .discovered that Mr.
Rowe had misappropriated several
thousand dollars belonging to the
plaintiff. Extended negotiations
were "had with Rowe by the com
missioners of the port in an effort
to secure : a satisfactory adjust
ment of the shortage.
On December 6, 1921, Tom
Watt, chairman of the board of
commissioners, went to Portland
where he consulted with the de
fendant relative to the trouble in
.which Rowe was involved.
Nicholson alleged that he in
dorsed the Botes under duress af
ter being told that Rowe would
be sent to the penitentiary if
aomething was not done to take
care of the shortage.
