1. The rule of the Circuit Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit which would permit an appeal to be taken in admiralty by simply filing in the office of the clerk of the District Court and serving on the proctor for the adverse party a notice of appeal is in conflict with § 8(c) of the Act of February 13, 1925, 28 U.S.C. 230, which, in admiralty as in equity cases, requires an application and judicial allowance. P. 301 U. S. 175.
