H.B.M. CONSULAR COURT.

Shanghai, May 10th, 1865.

Before SIR HARRY S. PARKES, K.C.B., H.B.M. Consul.

R. R. WESTALL, G. COUTTS, Assessors.

JARDINE MATHESON & Co. versus DADABHOY & Co.

This was a claim for Tls. 8,161.23 due by defendants to the plaintiffs, and for interest thereon at 12 per cent, from March 1st, 1865, until date of payment.

Mr. LAWRANCE said that the claim was on a compradore's order, but as it had been decided in the Supreme Court of Hongkong that a compradore's order was not sueable upon but was only as admission of a debt due, he had made no mention of it in the plaint.

Defendants admitted the claim and judgment was accordingly entered for the plaintiffs.
