§ 1. Pleading, petitions, and motions.

In a suit in admiralty to recover for the loss of a tow by collision
with a sunken wreck at night, in which the tug and the owner of the
wreck are both made defendants, and charged with fault, the libelant
is not precluded from recovering against the tug alone because the libe!
charges the owner of the wreck with a fault which, if proved, would
exonerate the tug, which charge is admitted by the answer of the tug,

but is not sustained by the evidence; the practice in admiralty being
to bring all parties before the court, and to determine the controversy
on the merits as it appears from the proof, regardless of technicalities
of pleading.

f 1. Decisions reviewable.

Defendant filed a general demurrer to plaintiff's statement or declara-
tion, which demurrer was sustained with leave to the plaintiff “to discon-
tinue on payment of costs,” but it did not appear that there had erer been
a discontinuance, or that defendant had ever entered judgment against
plaintiff prior to the suing out of the writ of error. Held, that the order
was not such a final judgment as would support the writ.
- Morris v. Dunbar, 149 Fed. 406......

...79 C. C. A. 226
No writ of error will lie at the suit of a plaintiff to review a judgment
of nonsuit or dismissal rendered in a national court at his request or with
his consent. Such a judgment, however, rendered on the motion of the
defendant and against the objection and the protest of the plaintiff is re-
viewable at the latter's instance.

-Francisco v. Chicago & A. R. Co., 149 Fed. 334.....79 C. C. A. 292
At the close of a trial the defendant moved the court to instruct the
jury to return a verdict in its favor, and its motion was granted. But be-
fore the instruction was given the plaintiff asked, and was granted, leave
by the court to take an involuntary nonsuit, and a judgment was rendered
accordingly. Held, the nonsuit was entered with the consent and at the
request of the plaintiff, and no writ of error could be maintained at lås
suit to review it. Describing it by a false epithet did not change its char-

§ 2. Presentation and reservation in lower court of grounds of review.

An exception to a charge, in order to found a right to review, must be
sufliciently distinct and specific to direct the attention of the court to the
particular error which is the subject of complaint.

-Coney Island Co. v. Dennan, 149 Fed. 687.........79 C. C. A. 375
A defendant who contests a case on the merits without objection to
the evidence offered on the ground of a variance, which might have been
cured by an amendment of the pleadings, cannot assign such variance as
a ground for reversal in an Appellate Court.

-Thompson-Starrett Co. v. Fitzgerald, 149 Fed. 721..79 C. C. A. 427
8 3. Parties.

Where two members of a firm were jointly sued on a firm debt and
judgment was entered against both, a writ of error could not be main-
tained by one of them alone in the absence of summons, sererance, or a
sufficient showing for nonjoinder of the other.

§ 6. Hearing and rehearing.

The rule of the Circuit Court of Appeals which requires a petition for re-
hearing to be filed within 30 days after the filing of an opinion is one of

convenience, and should not be enforced where the point on which a re-
hearing is asked is a reversal of the authority upon which the decision was
based after the time for filing of the petition had expired, but before the
court had lost jurisdiction over the judgment by the expiration of the

-Rockefeller v. Wedge, 149 Fed. 130.....

....79 C. C. A. 26
In a case brought to the Circuit Court of Appeals, on appeal from the

$ 8. Determination and disposition of cause.

Where the mandate on a former appeal provided that appellants were
liable for a sum sufficient to "pay all debts of every class which had or
might be proved against the bankrupt, and the expenses of the trustee,
his fee, and costs,” provided the aggregate did not exceed the amount of
the preference received by appellants' testator, appellants were properly
charged with a reasonable counsel fee to the trustee's attorney.
