The court also decided ail except one of the Virginia coupon casco in favor of the hondhoUleni.  Th# **I»r#M##d llc«f ** Cum#.  Tile supreme coart lout also rendered a decision in the case of the state of Minnesota, appellant, es. Henry K. Barber, the famous “dreseed boof" case. Th* court ahirm* the decision of the lower court, declaring the dri fted beef law unconstltu* tumid, aud dim-barging tile appellee from custody. Marlier was convicted before a justice of the peace In Ramsey county, Minn., of having wrongfully and unlafe fully offered and exposed for Hale, and of having sold some frrah beef. part of an animal slaughtered in Illinois, but not inspected in Minnesota, aud “certified" be-hire slaughter a* required by the statute of Minnesota. Barber sued out a writ of habeas corpus on the ground that the si at Ute wa*- repugnant to the provision of the constitution giving congress power to regulate commerce between the state#, as well as to tin provision declaring that citizen# of nu h state shall be entitled to all privileges and Immunities of citizens In the several stat*-*.  Th# ntwotlmu Statute.  The lower court held the statute to be in violation of both those provisions. In tho decision handed down by Justice Harlan, the oimoxioQs statute is quoted at length The pres urn ut ion that it was enacted in good faith, to protect the health of the people of Minnesota, the court says, cannot control the question of constit ut locality. In Henderson, etc., va. Mayor, etc , a New York case, tile court said:    “lo    whatever language a  statute may be framed, Its purpose most be determined by Its natural and reasonable effect."  A IMorHatliiailtHi.  The court holds that this statute make* a discrimination against the product* and bust ne## of other states in favor of Hie pro ducts and butin*--** of Minnesota. “If thin legislation doe# ti of make such discrimination it would lie <Uflcult to enact legislation which would have such a result" say* the court. Th* provision that would require animals to be sent Into Minnesota to be ins;Meted and then rvturned to be slaughtered within twenty four hour* of the inspection, amounts to an absolute prohibition upon sales made in Minnesota of meat from animala not slaughtered within its limits The point matte by counsel for the state that so far ae this statute is concerned, the people of Minnesota can bring meat'into the state f<»r their per arms!ut**, the court thinks deserve#examination. lint this view ignores the right which the people of other Mates have in commerce between theee states and the stab- of Minnesota.
