On March 3, 1891, Congress established a new Federal Court in order to relieve the Supreme Court, and to shorten delays in litigation. The President appointed an additional Judge in each of the 9 districts, at a salary of $6,000 without mileage; and a Circuit Court of Appeals is created in each circuit. In what constitute a majority of cases the decision of the new court is final, except that the Circuit Court has the right to certify any questions of law to the Supreme Court for its instruction, and where the Circuit Court does not make such a certificate the Supreme Court has the right to issue a certiorari to require cases to be certified to it for hearing. The decision of the Circuit Court is final in cases in which the jurisdiction is dependent upon the character of the suitors as citizens or aliens, in cases arising under the patent and revenue laws, in cases of inferior crimes which cannot be taken directly to the Supreme Court, and in admiralty cases other than prize. New York is in the 2d Circuit, comprising also Connecticut and Vermont. The New York judges of the Circuit courts are William J. Wallace, E. Henry Lacombe; of the District courts, Alfred C. Coxe, Utica; Addison Brown, New York; and C. L. Benedict, Brooklyn. Her U. S. district attorneys are Wm. A Poucher, Oswego; James L. Bennett, Brooklyn; and W. Macfarlane, New York.
