Syllabus

Contracts for sale of cotton for future delivery which do not oblige interstate shipment are not subject of interstate commerce, nor does the fact that a delivery may be made by mean of interstate carriage make them so, and a state tax on person engaged in buying and selling cotton for future delivery held in this case not to be a regulation of interstate commerce, and, as such, beyond the power of the state. Paul v. Virginia (insurance policy case), 8 Wall. 168, followed; Lottery Case,188 U. S. 321; Rearick v. Pennsylvania,203 U. S. 507, distinguished.

146 Ala. 163 affirmed.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
