Decided May 10, 1897

Oxley Stave Co. v. Butler County, 166 U. S. 648, followed to the point that

"the jurisdiction of this Court to reexamine the final judgment of a state court cannot arise from inference, but only from averments so distinct and positive as to place it beyond question that the party bringing a case here from such court intended to assert a federal right."

The case is stated in the opinion.
