It refused Mr. scNholls' appeal for a rehearing; a-nd its refusal makes the final, and -sends Mr. - Nicholls to the Peni ;tentiary for three years, the term to 'which he was sentenced. Most of the points taken in the case were technical, cove~ring various legal *questions, which Nicholls' counsel declared had not beeh properly considered or passed on. The decision of the Supreme Court will be received with public satisfaction, not because it results an the punishment of ex-President .Nicholls, but because it must re •vive public confidence and have a beneficial_ effect In assuring the proper management of banks and -.other like corporations on business principles.
