ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED

STATES FOR THE DISTRICT OF RHODE ISLAND

Syllabus

When a trial by jury in a circuit court is waived by agreement and the case is tried by the court, no questions are open for revision here unless the record shows a finding of facts in accordance with the provisions of Rev.Stat. §§ 649, 700, and in such case, when brought here, the judgment of the circuit court will be presumed to be right and will be affirmed if it appears that that court had jurisdiction of the subject matter and of the parties.

This was an action to recover duties alleged to have been illegally exacted. When the cause was reached on the docket, argument was begun on the part of the plaintiff in error, but the court interrupted the counsel and declined to hear further argument. The case is stated in the opinion.
