after such appeals are taken, and such writs of error sued out, or such bonds, summons, citations and other process is issued, and the court shall take jurisdiction to hear, determine and dispose of all such appeals, writs of error, bonds, summons, citations and other process from and after such return days in the same manner it has heretofore taken jurisdiction thereof on the first day of the regular annual term of said court. Writs of error and appeals shall be sued out in the manner now provided by law. Whenever a writ of error is sued out citation shall be issued by the clerk of the supreme court, directed to and citing the opposite party to appear to answer such writ; and whenever an appeal is taken unless the same is taken in open court, the opposite party, or his attorney being present, which fact shall be shown by the record, citation shall be issued by the clerk of the district court, directed to and citing the opposite party to appear in the supreme court and answer such appeal on the return day thereof. Such citations, both in the case of writs of error and appeals, may be served by delivery of copies thereof to the opposite party or his attorney of record in the court below. Such citations may be served by an officer or any other person, and when not by an officer service shall be made to appear by affidavit, or otherwise to the satisfaction of the court.

Sec. 3. Section 3140 of the Compiled Laws of 1897, is hereby repealed, and the following enacted in place thereof: The appellant in cases of appeals and the plaintiff in error in cases of writs of error shall file in the office of the clerk of the supreme court at least ten days before the return day of any writ of error or appeal, as perfect and as complete a transcript of the record and proceedings in the cause as may be necessary to enable the court to properly review it. If he fails to do so, the appellee or defendant in error may produce in court such transcript and if it appear thereby that an appeal has been allowed in the cause or from the records of the court that a writ of error has been sued out, the court shall upon such transcript affirm the judgment, unless good cause be shown to the contrary. On appeals and writs of error, the appellant and plaintiff in error shall assign errors on or before the return day to which the cause is returnable. In default of such assignment of error the appeal or writ of error may be dismissed and the judgment affirmed, unless good cause for such failure be shown. Unless exception is filed or taken to the assignment of error the opposite party shall be deemed to have joined in error upon the assignment of error so filed.

Sec. 4. Whenever any writ of error is sued out and the judgment sought to be reviewed is for a recovery other than a fixed amount of money, the chief justice, or any associate justice of the supreme court may by order fix the amount of the bond to be given as a condition for granting the supercedeas, as now provided by law in cases of appeal, and upon the making of the said order and the giving of the bond to be approved by the judge making the order, the supercedeas shall at once go into effect and the judge shall certify his approval of the bond and his order allowing said supercedeas, and upon the filing in the office of the clerk of the supreme court of the same, the said clerk shall thereupon issue the writ of error as in other cases, and the said order fixing the bond and granting the supercedeas, shall also be entered in the district court in which the judgment sought to be reviewed by writ of error was rendered. But the provisions of this section shall not affect causes now pending on appeal nor writs of error heretofore sued out.
