Page 146 U. S. 620

This was an action begun and prosecuted to judgment in a circuit court of the Kentucky. From that judgment, appeal and cross-appeal were taken to the court of appeals of the state. That court, after hearing, ordered

"that said judgment be reversed on the original appeal and affirmed on the cross-appeal and cause remanded for further proceedings consistent with the opinion herein, which is ordered to be certified to said court."

The case was brought here by writ of error, to review a federal question.

THE CHIEF JUSTICE: The writ of error is dismissed upon the authority of Meagher v. Minnesota Co., 145 U. S. 608; Rice v. Sanger, 144 U. S. 197; Johnson v. Keith, 117 U. S. 199.
