APPEAL AND ERROR.
1. Final or interlocutory decreeEffect of appeal under section 7 of act of

March 3, 1891.
Plaintiffs brought suit upon a single patent, in which there were twelve

claims. The Circuit Court found that three of the claims were invalid
and nine valid, of which five had been infringed, and referred it to a
master to report the amount of damages and dismissed the bill as to
the claims found invalid and not infringed. Defendants appealed
. from the decree and plaintiffs also filed cross appeal assigning as errors
the rulings adverse to them. The Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed
the cross appeal. Petition for mandamus to compel that court to
take jurisdiction of the cross appeal denied and held, that the decree
was interlocutory and not final and in the Federal courts no appeal
can as a general rule be taken except from a final decree. The appeal
authorized by 87 of the act of March 3, 1891, does not bring up the
cause as a whole; and, unless otherwise specially ordered, the case,
except for hearing of the appeal from the interlocutory order, proceeds
in the lower court as though no appeal had been taken until final judg-
ment. Cases in which a bill has been dismissed as to some of the de
fendants and a separable controversy as to others referred to a master
for an accounting, and in which the dismissal has been treated as a
final decree, have no application to a case of joint liability, or in which
there is only a single defendant. Ex parte National Enameling Co.,
156; Ex parte Automatic Switch Co., 166.

2. Bonds; irregularities in; necessity for entry of order regarding.
Although irregularities may exist in appeal bonds, if the cases are sent

back for further proceedings no order need be entered here regarding
them. Amadeo v. Northern Assurance Co., 194.
