APPEAL FROM THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF IOWA.
[ 140 U.S. Page 199]
MR. JUSTICE BROWN delivered the opinion of the court.
Upon a reconsideration of the seventh paragraph of our opinion in this case, we have come to the conclusion that the item for entering the orders for trial, and recording the verdict should be allowed. We think the docket fee of three dollars was intended to cover the entry of the case upon the
[ 140 U.S. Page 200]
docket, indexing the same, making cotemporaneous minutes and entries upon the docket or calendar and such other incidental services as are not covered by other clauses of the statute. Where, however, the entry is not a mere memorandum, but requires to be made part of a permanent record, it is a proper subject for a charge per folio.
The item in this case was properly allowed by the court below as for "making a record."
The opinion in the above case will be varied to this extent.
