Motion to transfer to circuit court of appeals
submitted December 11, 1922
Decided January 2, 1923
260 U.S. 438
1. Under the Act of September 14, 1922, c. 305, 42 Stat. 837, a case brought here from the district court upon the mistaken assumption that it presents a substantial constitutional question, but which involves other questions within the jurisdiction of the circuit court of appeals, should be transferred to that court. P. 260 U. S. 439.
2. This statute should be construed liberally. P. 260 U. S. 440.
Applications to transfer these cases, heretofore dismissed for want of jurisdiction (post, 703), to the circuit court of appeals. For the opinion of the district court, see 274 F. 401.
