A receiver appointed by a state court in a suit which, under the Act of March 3, 1875, 18 Stat. part 3, 470, was subsequently removed to the circuit court of the United States, reported to the latter, stating the amount of the fund in his hands and asking for an order to pay therefrom certain liabilities. Held that the circuit court had authority to require him to account for the fund, and that he is chargeable with interest on so much thereof as he on receiving deposited in a bank to his credit as receiver, and then withdrew and deposited on his private account in another bank, he declining to explain the transaction, when he was examined as a witness by the master to whom the court had referred his accounts.
