Syllabus

The words "court" and "judge" have frequently been used interchangeably in federal statutes, and this Court adheres to the construction it has heretofore recognized as correct, and which has been adopted generally in practice, and in Congressional legislation that the appeal from a United States Commissioner provided for in § 13 of the Act of September 13, 1888, 25 Stat. 476, 479, is an appeal to the district court, and should so be regarded.

The papers or proceedings below should be filed by the clerk of the district court as an appeal pending in that court, and the final judgment should be accordingly recorded.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
