necessity of having bills of exceptions

case the court held that "A pretended

In error, but this bill of exceptions does
not purport to contain all the evidence

tbe evidence Introduced at the hearing
was sufficient to .upport Ita findings."
The failure of the person drawing up
the record to have it properly certified
was the basis of the decision, and now

consideration. They contend the omission
waa not suggested by any authorlted at
