Submitted March 10, 1884

Decided March 31, 1884

111 U.S. 200

Syllabus

In order to give this Court jurisdiction in error of a state court, it must appear affirmatively on the face of the record not only that the federal question was raised and presented to the highest court of the state for decision, but that it was decided or that its decision was necessary to the judgment or decree rendered in the case.

This was a motion to dismiss for want of jurisdiction.
