PER CURIAM. These are appeals from decrees granting motions by the
defendant below to dismiss the plaintiff's bill. The motions were granted and
the bills dismissed on the authority of the decision of the Court of Appeals
for the Second Circuit in Marconi, etc., Co. v. Simon, 231 Fed. 1021, 145 C.
C. A. 656. Pending the plaintiff's appeal to this court, the Supreme Court has,
on March 4, 1918, revelsed the decree of the Court of Appeals in the above
case, and also the decree of the District Court thereby affirmed, and has re-
manded the case, to the end that the rights of the parties may be considered
and determined in the light of the construction given Act June 25, 1910, c.
423, 36 Stat. 851 (Comp. St. 1916, 9465), by the Supreme Court in Wm. Cramp,
etc., Co. v. Ship & Engine Bldg. Co., 240 U. S. 28, 38 Sup. Ct. 271, 621 L. Ed.
-, also decided on March 4, 1918. A petition for rehearing in the last-men-
tioned case has been denied. It is not disputed that what has been decided as
above by the Supreme Court requires us to reverse the decrees of dismissal
now before us and remand the cases for further proceedings in the District
Court. As there has never been any hearing on pleadings and proofs in
that court in either case, we follow the course indicated by the disposition
made by the Supreme Court of the above cases before it. The decrees of the
District Court are reversed, and the cases remanded to that court for consid-
eration and determination of the rights of the parties in the light of the con-
struction given the act of 1910 by the Supreme Court in the decisions referred
to in this opinion. The appellant recovers its costs of appeal.
