REHEARING DENIED BY APPEALS COURT Leaves Not Question For Jury Ruling Having ruled upon a question of law in the case two weeks ago, the second district court of appeals denied Thursday an application for rehearing of a $7,072.59 promissory note litigation originally instituted by John A. St. John against his mother, Mrs. Harriet St. John, Caesarcreek Twp. Trial of the suit last July ended in a jury disagreement. The rehearing request, the appellate court pointd out, "apparently interprets our opinion as holding that there was an issue made on the pleadings. W 6 stated that there was an issue made upon the whole record. That is to say, not only upon tUa pleadings but also the evidence. We have heretofore held, and upon reconsideration are'} of the opinion, that there is a conflict in the testimony and a con- flict in inferences which may be drawn from the undispmed testimony." The appeals court held there Is a question of fact for a jury to determine. The original face value .of the note in question was 13,680, executed April 14, 1924, almost twelve years before any. action was instituted on it. During this period the value nearly doubled itself because of accumulated interest.
