Jus, Chief Justice. As should be well known, our practice is to sit in review of decisions presenting elements of difficulty, and concerning the propriety of which there seems reason for doubt. We have no jurisdiction to reverse, to modify, or to affirm. Our judgment must be confined to approval or to disapprobation, or to some position between these two extremes.
