No. 450

Argued March 7, 1929

any liability of the company remained outstanding in Mississippi, whether incurred before or after such appointment. Held that the statute and the appointment should not be construed as empowering the Mississippi courts to entertain an action brought against the company by a Louisiana corporation on a contract of marine insurance entered into abroad and unrelated to any matter in Mississippi. P. 279 U. S. 408.

4. A defendant does not waive objection to jurisdiction over his person by removing the case from the state to the federal court; nor by joining his plea to the jurisdiction with a plea in abatement because of another action pending, as permitted by the local practice and the Conformity Act. P. 279 U. S. 409.

27 F.2d 329 affirmed.

Certiorari, 278 U.S. 592, to review a judgment of the circuit court of appeals which affirmed a judgment of the district court dismissing the action for want of jurisdiction.
