Judge Lowe, in the distriat court
at Ft. Hoot t, has rendered n decis
ion that the State law forbidding
the driving of Texas cattle through
Kansas is unconstitutional. The de
cision was based upon the following
1st. That it is in conflict with sec
tion H, article 0, of the constitution
of the State of Kansas.
2d. That it is in conllict with sec
linn 8, article 1, of the constitution
of the United .States.
Section (5, article G, of the consti
tution of the State of Kansas pro
vides that all penalties collected
tfhall be paid into the school fund.
Section S, article 1, of the consti
tution of the United States provides
that congress shall have power to
regulate commerce with foreign na
tions, and among the several States
and with the Indian tribes.
Several suits have been brought
in various district courts throughout
the State against parties who have
driven lexas cattle into the Stale,
and in many cases thcfine imposed
has been very heavy, in sonic in
stances as high as five hundred
