Syllabus

In error to a state court, the writ may be directed to an inferior court if the supreme court of the state, without retaining a copy, remits the whole record to that court with direction to enter a final judgment in the case.

The statute of limitations for writs of error, § 1008 Rev.Stat., begins to run from the date of the entry and filing of the judgment in the court's proceedings, which constitutes the evidence of the judgment.

This was a motion to dismiss a writ of error, as brought too late. The case is stated in the opinion of the Court
