Decided December 3, 1900
179 U.S. 199
That a federal statute was construed unfavorably to one of the parties to a suit is no ground for jurisdiction by this Court unless such construction was not only unfavorable, but was against the right, etc., specially set up and claimed under the statute, in which case the party so setting up and claiming the right under the statute can obtain a review here.
