ACTION AT LAW.

The water works company contracted with the municipal corporation of

Raton to construct and maintain water works for it, and the corpora-
tion contracted to pay an agreed rental for the use of hydrants for
twenty-five years. The works were constructed, and the corporation
issued to the company, in pursuance of ordinances, warrants for such
payments falling due one in every six months. Subsequently the
corporation repealed the ordinances authorizing payment of the war-
rants, and passed other ordinances in conflict with them, whereupon
the corporation refused to pay the warrants which had accrued and
others as they became due. Thereupon the company filed this bill to
enforce the payments of the amounts of rental already accrued, and as
it should become due thereafter. Held, That the remedy of the com-
pany upon the warrants was at law, and not in equity, and that the
court below should have dismissed the bill, without prejudice to the
right of the company to bring an action at law. Raton Water Works
Co. v. Raton, 360.

ATTORNEY AT LAW.

1. Stone v. Bank of Commerce, 174 U. S. 412, affirmed and applied to the

point that the agreement of the commissioners of the sinking fund of
Louisville and the attorney of the city with certain banks, trust com-
panies, etc., including the Bank of Louisville, that the rights of those
institutions should abide the result of test suits to be brought, was
dehors the power of the commissioners of the sinking fund and the city
attorney, and that the decree in the test suit in question did not
constitute res judicata as to those not actually parties to the record.

Louisville v. Bank of Louisville, 439.
2. Citizens' Savings Bank of Owensboro v. Owensboro, 173 U. S. 636, also

affirmed and applied. Ib.
