Question 554.— When a party's whereabouts cannot be ascertained, and a note against him is entered in court to prevent it from becoming outlawed, what is the limit of time allowed before any further steps must be taken, and, if there is a limit of time, what must be the next proceedings?
Answer.—The answer to this question depends entirely upon the practice of the particular court in which the action is entered. It would serve no useful purpose to discuss mere questions of procedure in court, as there is no principle involved, and the rules of the court may at any time be altered by the judge. We therefore give no answer to this question.
