ERROR TO THE SUPREME COURT

OF THE STATE OF GEORGIA

Syllabus

In this case, on a writ of error to review the judgment of the supreme court of a state, it was held that no federal question was involved, because the case was decided by the state court on a ground broad enough to maintain the judgment independently of any federal question, and the writ was dismissed.
