256 U.S. 35

Syllabus

1. A decision made by the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia upon an appeal from the Commissioner of Patents under § 9 of the Trade-Mark Act of February 20, 1905, is not reviewable in this Court by appeal or certiorari under §§ 250, 251 of the Judicial Code,

since such decisions are merely certified to the Commissioner to govern his further proceeding in the case, as in patent matter (R.S., § 4914), and are not therefore final judgments. P. 256 U. S. 38.

2. Assumption of jurisdiction by this Court in a case where no question of jurisdiction was raised or considered does not establish its jurisdiction over that class of cases. P. 256 U. S. 40.

Appeal to review 48 App.D.C. 437 dismissed; petition for a writ of certiorari denied.
