Syllabus

1. The court accepts the concurrent findings of the district court and circuit court of appeals upon the facts in an equity case unless clear error is shown. P. 255 U. S. 223.

2. Where the facts determine the decision, and where the record exhibits no clear error in the concurrent findings and the appellant has not brought up all the evidence, a decree may be affirmed on motion to avoid the harmful and useless delay of retaining the case for oral argument. Id.

265 F. 621 affirmed.
