APPEAL FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED

Syllabus

1. A cause pending on appeal in the supreme court of a state at the date of the passage of the Act of March 3, 1875, c. 137, 18 Stat., pt. 3, p. 470, was remanded for a rehearing, the decree below having been reversed solely upon the ground of the admission of the evidence of incompetent witnesses. The transcript was filed in the court of original jurisdiction at a term thereof which was within the time prescribed by the state statute. Held that a petition for the removal of the cause to the circuit court of the United States filed at the same term and before such rehearing was filed in due season.
