Syllabus

Under the decision of this Court in these and other commodities clause cases, 213 U. S. 213 U.S. 364, there was no error in the circuit court's dismissing the bill absolutely, the government not having asked leave to amend, the stipulation to submit on bill and answer not having been withdrawn, and no violation of the law having been shown on the admitted facts.

Under such circumstances, the decree must be affirmed whatever may be its scope and effect as res judicata in view of stipulations made in the court below.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
