Winona & St. Peter Land Company v. Minnesota

No. 38

Argued October 16, 1895

Decided November 11, 1895

159 U.S. 540

ERROR TO THE SUPREME COURT

OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA

Syllabus

The federal question sought to be raised here not having been presented in the state court, the case is dismissed for want of jurisdiction.

The case is stated in the opinion.

MR. JUSTICE BREWER delivered the opinion of the Court.

This case is similar to the one between the same parties just decided in that the questions presented to the state courts involved the taxability of lands included in the legislative grants of May 22, 1857, and March 10, 1862, the Barney contract of October 31, 1867, and the decree in the United States circuit court of March 7, 1887. The tax proceedings were under the law of 1881, but were had in the County of Brown instead of the County of Redwood. The case, however, differs from the preceding in that the federal questions sought to be raised in this Court were not seasonably presented in the state courts. The alleged immunity from taxation and lack of due process of law were not "specially set up or claimed" prior to the decision in the supreme court. The failure so to do prevents this Court, as has been frequently held, from acquiring jurisdiction. 123 U. S. 181; Brooks v. Missouri, 124 U. S. 394; Chappell v. Bradshaw, 128 U. S. 132; Brown v. Massachusetts, 144 U. S. 573; Schuyler National Bank v. Bollong, 150 U. S. 85; Powell v. Brunswick County, 150 U. S. 433; Miller v. Texas, 153 U. S. 535; Morrison v. Watson, 154 U. S. 111; Sayward v. Denny,@ 158 U. S. 180.

The writ of error must therefore be dismissed for want of jurisdiction.
