Buck Stove & Range Co. v. Vickers, 226 U.S. 205 (1912)
Buck Stove & Range Co. v. Vickers
Argued December 19, 1911
Decided December 2, 1912
226 U.S. 205
Rev.Stat., § 1011, providing that there shall be no reversal in this Court upon a writ of error for error in ruling on any plea of abatement other than one to the jurisdiction of the court, does not apply to writs of error to state courts, but only to lower federal courts.
The subdivision and rearrangement of § 22 of the Judiciary Act of 1789 in the Revised Statutes of 1873 did not work any change in the purpose and meaning of the original act.
The statute of Kansas of 1905, requiring certain classes of foreign corporations to file statements is an invalid restriction and burden and unconstitutional as to foreign corporations engaged in interstate commerce, under the commerce clause of the federal Constitution. International Textbook Co. v. Pigg, 217 U. S. 91.
80 Kan. 29 reversed.
The facts, which involve the application of § 1011, Rev.Stat., to writs of error to state courts and also the constitutionality of a statute of Kansas affecting the right
of corporations of other states to do business in Kansas, are stated in the opinion.
