In § 2 of Art. III of the Constitution, the second clause merely distributes the federal jurisdiction conferred by the preceding one into original and appellate jurisdiction, and does not itself confer any. Id.

Permission will not be granted to file an original bill if jurisdiction to entertain it is clearly lacking. P. 251 U. S. 314.
