James H. Harkless and E. J. Sherlock, filed brief for appellees.

Before CALDWELL, SANBORN, and THAYER, Circuit Judges.

THAYER, Circuit Judge.

This is an appeal from a final order in an equity case allowing Charles S. Crysler, one of the appellees, $5,000 as an attorney's fee, in addition to amounts previously allowed, for services by him rendered to the receiver appointed in said case. The allowance was made under the following circumstances: In the month of June, 1893, a bill was filed by Ezra V. Snively against the Loomis Coal Company to establish and to enforce a vendor's lien against the property of the coal company, and at the instance of the complainant, James A. Bovard, who has since died, was appointed receiver of all its property and effects, consisting of coal lands and mines, a store, and the usual tools and appliances for operating coal mines. By an order made in the case on June 30, 1893, the receiver was authorized to employ said Charles S. Crysler, the appellee, as his attorney, to represent the interests of the trust estate in the receiver's charge. Subsequently, on March 3, 1894, the present appellants, the Merchants' Bank of St. Joseph and the First National Bank of Hannibal, Mo., who held mortgages on the coal lands in question to the amount of about $40,000, including [67 F. 389] interest, were allowed to intervene in the cause for the protection of their interests. On April 16, 1894, a decree was entered by consent of all parties in interest, which provided, in substance, that the property in the hands of the receiver should be sold at public sale by a commissioner appointed for that purpose, and that the proceeds of the sale should be distributed in the manner following: First, to the payment of all costs and expenses in the case, including compensation to the receiver and his attorney, and such indebtedness as the receiver had lawfully contracted while in control of the property; second, to the payment of the interveners' mortgages; third, to the payment of a judgment lien on a portion of the lands held by the appellant herein, John Vaughn; fourth, to the payment of the vendor's lien held by the complainant, Snively; the residue of the fund, if any, to be paid to the Loomis Coal Company. On the last day of the same term, to wit, on June 2, 1894, on an oral motion made by the receiver's attorney, without notice to the appellants, the circuit court allowed the receiver and his attorney each $5,000 as compensation, in addition to the compensation theretofore allowed to them, and at the same time it approved certain lengthy reports that had been filed by the receiver. Previous to making this order, and on December 5, 1893, the court had made an order allowing the receiver to pay to himself, out of the funds...
