"It is further stipulated that said bonds and coupons are identical in character with the bonds and coupons in the matter of Skinner v. Town of East Oakland, tried in this Court and appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, tried there and reported in 94 U. S. 94 U.S. 255, and issued in same manner, the only difference being that these bonds and coupons were issued by the Town of Paris instead of the Town of East Oakland."

"In case of appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, this case may be submitted under Rule 20 on written briefs."

Judgment below for the defendant, to review which the plaintiff sued out this writ of error.


The judgment in this case is affirmed on the authority of Glenn v. Fant, 134 U. S. 398; Raimond v. Terrebonne Parish, 132 U. S. 192; Andes v. Slauson, 130 U. S. 435, and Bond v. Dustin, 112 U. S. 604, and cases cited.
