,|«.A THE KEELEY
ft Washington correspondent refera
to the great argument made by E. How
ard McCaleb, Jr., 1 n the »Supreme Court
of the United State*, Wednesday, Oc
tober 28th ultimo. He is the second
son of E Howard McCaleb, formerly of
Claiborne county. The correspondent
Mr. McCaleb represented the
State of Louisians against the Citizen»
Bank of Louisiana in the United States
Supreme Court. He raised the nosel
point that the Supreme Court of Louisi
had no appellate power or revisory
urisdiction over its own final decree« in
local law, being a court of ultimate ap
peal, and the United State« Supreme
Court has co-ordinate jurisdiction with
the State Supreme Court; therefore, tu
this case, the Federal Supreme Conrt
has no such power a« to take jurisdiction
of the local question«, when it wai
originally without jurisdiction. There
sre no cited ca»ea to be found in the
books on the question at issue,
professors of the Tulane L*w School
opposed to him, one Henry Denis,
the ablest civilian in America, and the
other Eugene D. Saunders, a recog
nized authority on constitutional law.
It may not be known, hut it is a fact,
Thomas Farrar McCaleb wrote the
charter of the famous Citizens Bsnk in
1833, and which Director Roberts, of
the United States mint, considered the
best guide for framing State banking
laws. Horace White, a financial writer,
commended Its charter feature In speak
ing of its anti-bellum past, applied to
State banks in the National Democratic
platform of 1892." In appearance, de

Perhaps you have never thought of it but
the fact must be apparent to every one that
constipation is caused by a lack of water in
the system, and the use of drastic cathartics
like the old-fashioned pills only makes a
bad matter worse,
and Liver Tablets are much more mild and
gentle in their effect, and when the proper
dose is taken their action is so natural that
hardly realize it is the effect of a
medicine. Try a 25 cent bottle them.
