United States Supreme Court

59 U.S. 263

Orton  v.  Smith

THIS was an appeal from the district court of the United States, for the district of Wisconsin.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the court.

It was argued by Mr. Gillett and Mr. Lynde, for the appellant, and Mr. Brown, for the appellee. There was also a brief filed on the same side by Mr. Upham.

The points made by the counsel were so interwoven with the facts, that they cannot be presented abstractedly.

Mr. Justice GRIER delivered the opinion of the court.
