United States v. Jones

Nos. 197, 198, 199, 525

Submitted March 18, 1904

Decided April 4, 1904

193 U.S. 528

Syllabus

The making of the oath and attaching the same to the accounts of clerks of the circuit and district courts of the United States as required by the act of February 22, 1875, is a part of the formality of presenting the accounts and is not to be allowed against the government in favor of the clerk.

An order of the court requiring a service to be performed is sufficient authority as between the clerk and the government for the performance of the service and the allowance of the proper fee therefor.

Where no direction of the court can be shown charges cannot be allowed for certificates to copies of orders.

Clause 4 of § 828, Rev.Stat., does not justify charges for administering oaths on the voir dire of grand and petit jurors.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the court.
