This is an appeal from a judgment awarding mandamus to the respondent county treasurer directing the payment of a warrant covering the salary of petitioner, register of the circuit court, under the Act approved August 13, 1927 (Gen. Acts 1927, p. 268).

The judgment of the circuit court is reversed, and one is here rendered denying the writ of mandamus.
