U.S. Supreme Court

Kansas Pacific R. Co. v. Atchison, T. & S.F. R. Co., 112 U.S. 414 (1884)

Kansas Pacific Railroad Company v.

Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad Company

Argued November 4-5, 1884

Decided December 8, 1884

112 U.S. 414


Under the Act of March 3, 1863, 12 Stat. 772, granting lands to Kansas to aid in the construction of railroads, no title could be acquired in any specific tracts as indemnity lands until actual selection, and no selection could be made of lands appropriated by Congress to other purposes prior to the date of the selection.

Upon the admission of a territory into the Union, corporations created under laws of the Territory become corporations of the state.

In judicial proceedings in courts of the United States to enforce contracts or rights of property, a corporation is regarded as a citizen of the state creating it.

This was a suit in equity brought up on appeal from an adverse decree of the circuit court in Kansas (see 2 McCrary 550). The objects of the suit and the facts which make the case are set forth in the opinion of the Court.
