WILLIAMS, C.


This case comes from the circuit court of Callaway county, Mo. The case involves a claim in the sum of $1,472.60. The claim is by the Portland Bank v. Bank of McCredie, now in the hands of the state finance commissioner in the process of liquidation. The appellant contends it is entitled to have its claim allowed as a preferred claim.

The McCredie Bank, located at McCredie, Callaway county, Mo., was on September 27, 1926, and for a long time prior thereto, engaged in a general banking business. The Portland Bank was also doing a banking business at the same time at Portland, Callaway county, Mo. Portland and McCredie were about 25 miles apart.

Certain customers' checks drawn on other banks were delivered. These checks were paid and are not involved in this case. A check was given by the McCredie Bank to the Portland Bank for $1,472.60 drawn on its account at the Callaway Bank, located at Fulton, Mo. This check was put in the usual course of collection, but did not arrive at the Callaway Bank until after the McCredie Bank was closed. This check, of course, was not paid, and the nonpayment of this check is the foundation of this claim.

The account of the McCredie Bank in the Callaway Bank, was not, on the date the check was given, sufficient to pay this check. At the time the McCredie Bank closed, it had on deposit the sum of $1,558.90 at the National Stockyards' Bank. This sum represented the balance of the money deposited by the Portland Bank to the credit of the McCredie Bank after paying the...
