Syllabus

One court ought to deal with the whole matter in litigation even where the law of different jurisdictions is involved; foreign law may be ascertained and acted upon and rights depending thereon protected.

Where riparian rights of several parcels of land in different states but on the same river are involved, the courts of both states have concurrent jurisdiction, and the court first seized should proceed to determination without interference.

Quaere whether notice to an individual in regard to his property is not notice to a corporation organized by him after such notice and to which he conveys his property.

Where, as in this case, cross-bills are maintainable, jurisdiction in respect to them follows that over the principal bill.

152 F. 11 affirmed.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
