The proceeding, authorized by the statutes of Colorado, for condemning land to public use for school purposes is a suit at law within the meaning of the Constitution of the United States and the acts of Congress conferring jurisdiction upon the courts of the United States, which may be removed into a circuit court of the United States from a state court.

This was an appeal from a judgment of the circuit court remanding a cause to the state court from which it had been removed. The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
