and payable in Austria and governed by the Austrian law, a payment into court there, which by that law operated as a discharge, is a complete defense. P. 274 U. S. 255.

7 F.2d 443 affirmed.

Appeal from a decree of the circuit court of appeals in a suit brought under the Trading with the Enemy Act by depositor-creditors of an Austrian bank, property of which in this country had been seized by the Alien Property Custodian during the war. The district court awarded a recovery at the rate of exchange on August 12, 1919. The court below reversed this, holding that a deposit of kronen in Austria, April 1, 1920, had operated as a discharge.
