Decided November 19, 1900

179 U.S. 127


An assignment of error in this Court that the decision of a state supreme court was inconsistent with certain paragraphs of an alleged brief putting forward a federal question does not amount to a compliance with the requirements of § 709 of the Revised Statutes.

Where a federal question is raised in the state courts, the party who brings the case to this Court cannot raise here another federal question, which was not raised below.
