Syllabus

It was essential, in order to confer jurisdiction on this Court in this case, that the Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals of the State of New York, or his lawful substitute, or a justice of this Court should have allowed the writ and signed the citation, and as the writ was signed by a judge as "Asso. Judge, Court of Appeals, New York," and there was nothing in the record warranting the inference that he was at that time, acting as Chief Judge pro tem. of that court, the writ is dismissed.

The case is stated in the opinion.
