decided: March 12, 1894.
KEOKUK AND WESTERN RAILROAD COMPANY
APPEAL FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI.
[ 152 U.S. Page 317]
MR. JUSTICE BROWN delivered the opinion of the court.
[ 152 U.S. Page 318]
This case differs from the one just decided, ante, 301, only in the fact that this is a bill in equity, filed by the corporation whose property is sought to be taxed, to restrain the defendants from levying or collecting any taxes for the years 1883 to 1887, inclusive, upon the ground that the Circuit Court for the Eastern District of Missouri in the Secor case, and also the Supreme Court of the State, had held the property of the company not to be subject to taxation.
As the questions involved in the two cases are precisely the same, the decree of the court, below dismissing the bill was correct, and the same is, therefore,
MR. JUSTICE HARLAN and MR. JUSTICE BREWER dissented.
