Decided January 8, 1900

176 U.S. 59


The decision in Blake v. McClung, 172 U. S. 239, referred to, and it is held that the judgment now under review was not in conformity with the opinion and mandate in that case -- the court adjudging, as it had adjudged in the previous case, that when the general property and assets of a private corporation, lawfully doing business in a state, are in the course of administration by the courts of such state, creditors who are citizens of other states are entitled, under the Constitution of the United States, to stand in all respects upon the same plane with creditors of like class who are citizens of such state, and cannot be denied equality of right simply because they do not reside in that state, but are citizens residing in other states of the Union.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
