Strickley v. Highland Boy Gold Mining Co., 200 U.S. 527 (1906)

Strickley v. Highland Boy Gold Mining Company

No. 172

Argued January 25, 1906

Decided February 19, 1906

200 U.S. 527


If a state statute as construed by the highest court of the state is constitutional, this Court will follow that construction.

There is nothing in the Fourteenth Amendment which prevents a state in carrying out its declared public policy from requiring individuals to make to each other, on due compensation, such concessions as the public welfare demands, and the statute of Utah providing that eminent domain may be exercised for railways and other means to facilitate the working of mines is not unconstitutional. Clark v. Nash, 198 U. S. 361, followed.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
