    WHITE v. BUTLER, 171 U.S. 379 (1898)

    U.S. Supreme Court

    WHITE v. BUTLER, 171 U.S. 379 (1898)

    171 U.S. 379

    WHITE et al.
    v.
    BUTLER.

    SAME
    v.
    RUCKMAN.

    Nos. 540 and 541.

    May 31, 1898

    Asst. Atty. Gen. Boyd and Joseph H. Gaines, for appellants.

    Charles J. Faulkner, for appellees.

    Mr. Justice HARLAN delivered the opinion of the court.

    Butler, the appellee in the first of the above cases, was a storekeeper of the United States at the Hannis distillery at Martinsburg, W. Va.

    Ruckman, the appellee in the second case, was also a storekeeper at the same distillery.

    The bill in each case is substantially like that in White v. Berry ( just decided) 18 Sup. Ct. 917. The relief asked by Butler and Ruckman is the same as that asked by Berry, and the decree rendered in behalf of each was the same as that rendered in Berry's Case.

    For the reasons stated in the opinion just delivered in White v. Berry, the decree in each of the above cases must be reversed, and the causes remanded, with directions to dismiss the bills. It is so ordered.[ White v. Butler 171 U.S. 379 (1898) ]
