Decided June 1, 1920

253 U.S. 217


A writ of error to review a judgment of the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia dismissing a petition for mandamus against the Secretary of the Treasury must be dismissed if, after respondent's resignation from office, his successor has not been substituted within twelve months. P. 253 U. S. 218. Act of February 8, 1899, c. 121, 30 Stat. 822.

In default of such timely substitution, the petition cannot be retained to charge the respondent personally in damages (D.C.Code, § 1278), since damages are only incident to allowance of the writ. P. 253 U. S. 219.

Writ of error to review 48 App.D.C. 181 dismissed.
