No. 262.

149 U.S. 262 (1893)


Supreme Court of United States.

Decided May 1, 1893.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Mr. Assistant Attorney General Parker for plaintiffs in error.

Mr. T Alexander and Mr. N.C. Blanchard for defendants in error


Judgment was rendered in this case July 18, the writ of error sued out and allowed July 23, and the court adjourned for the term, July 30, 1889. So far as disclosed by the record the bill of exceptions was not tendered to the judge or signed by him until October 7, 1889, and no order was entered extending the time for its presentation, nor was there any consent of parties thereto, nor any standing rule of court which authorized such approval. The bill of exceptions was therefore improvidently allowed. Miller v. Ehlers, 91 U.S. 249; Jones v. Grover & Baker Sewing Machine Co., 131 U.S. Appx. cl; Michigan Insurance Bank v. Eldred, 143 U.S. 293. As the errors assigned arise upon the bill of exceptions, we are compelled to affirm the judgment, and it is so ordered.
