Decided March 21, 1921

1. Mandamus does not lie where there was an adequate remedy by writ of error. P. 255 U. S. 451.
2. A defendant, convicted of a felony and sentenced in the district court, moved during the term to have the record corrected to show that, by agreement with the district attorney, he was tried by eleven jurors, and to set aside the judgment for that reason, but the court held the record sufficient, rejected evidence offered to the contrary, and denied both motions. Held that the decisions could have been reviewed upon a bill of exceptions by writ of error. Id.
