No. 12

Argued October 17, 1935

settled in full; such an equity does not arise from the doctrine of subrogation, nor from an express contract of the principal, made before he became insolvent, to indemnify the surety out of those particular funds -- in this case the "retained percentage" due the principal under a construction contract. P. 296 U. S. 137.

75 F.2d 377 affirmed.

Certiorari, 295 U.S. 723, to review the affirmance of a decree of the District Court, in bankruptcy, directing that a fund belonging to the bankrupt, which had been retained by the United States as security from moneys due him under a construction contract, should be devoted to payment of claims of creditors who furnished materials for the performance of the contract, to the exclusion of the claim for reimbursement of the surety on the contractor's bond.
