"Washington , Jan. 4. Justice Holmes ,
ft In the su promo court , rendered a de

states was questioned. The Jaws are

Holmes reverses the decision of the

The Nebraska su'U was a test case ,
lii which many , batiks of Nebraska
wore interested , hoping to prevent the
Banking board of Nebraska from car
rying out and enforcing an act sim
ilar to the Oklahoma statute. It for
bids banking except by a corporation
formed under the act and provides
for a guaranty fund. The circuit
court held the statute unconstitu
tional pnrt issued an injunction against
All Thrco LPAVS Upheld.
} The United States supreme court
. Ip-o affirmed the judgment of the
"jbklahoma supreme court in the Noble
JState bank case , upholding the consti-
| ntionaJity ot ' , the state bank guaj >
"antylaw. . _
The Kansas law was tasted "in a
| Tuit brought"by -the Assaria. State
, Uank of Assaria , the State bank of Ax-
-JtP-11 , and other banks. A suit in equity
fwas started to prevent the enlorce-
? ment of the law providing for a banlr
" .depositors' guaranty fund. The cir
cuit court held the Kansas law uncon
stitutional , but dismissed the bill of
complaint on the ground that the ap
pellants did not show that their rights
had been infringed. The ground of
-complaint was that the iaw imposed
certain conditions upon the sharing-
of benefits and burdens of contributors
to the guaranty fund ; that the ap-
* pcllants could or would not contrib
ute , and that unless they did the ef
fect of the law 'would be to deprive
thoi" of their business.
The Nebraska -case was decided on
Identically the same grounds as the
Oklahoma case , and similarly the Kan-
si1. ! : law , though this contains certain
minor differences. The most import
ant of these is that contributions are
not absolutely required.
Police Power Basis "of Decision.
"It 'may be said in a general way
that the police power extends to all
great public ueed.s. " Justice Holmes
StP.toJ. "It will-sei-ve as a datum on
this side that in our opinion the stat
ute bei'ore us is we ! ! within a state's
"The question that we have decided
is not much helped by propounding the
further one , whether the right "to en
gage in banking is or can be made a
franchise. But as the lalter question
has. some bearing on the former and
as it will have to ue considered in fol
lowing cases , if not here , we will dis
pose of it now. It is not answered by
citing authorities for existence of aright
-right at common law. There are many
r things a man might do at common
law that a state may forbid. He
i might embezzle until the statute cut
flown his liberty. We cannot say that
the public interests to which we have
adverted , and otheis. are not suffi
cient to warrant the slate taking , the
whole business of banking imrler its
control. On the contrary , we are of
.the opinion that it may go on from
regulation to prohibition , except upon
.such conditions as it may prescribe.
"In short , , when the Oklahoma leg's
lature declares by implication that
free banking is a public danger and
t.hht incorporation , inspection tmd the
above described co-opiation are nec
essary safeguards this court certainly
cannot say that it is wrong. "

If This Medicine Does Not

A physician who made a specialty
of stomach troubles , particularly
elysoepsia , after years of study per
fected the formula from which Eex-
all Dyspepsia Tablets are made.
Our experience with Rexall Dys
pepsia Tablets leads us to believe
them to be the greatest remedy
known for the relief of acute in
digestion and chronic dyspepsia.
Their ingredients are soothing and
healing to the stomach. They are
rich in pepsin , one of the greatest
digestive aids known to medicine.
The relief they afford is almost im
mediate. Their use with persistency
arid regularity for a short time
brings about a cessation of the
pains caused by stomach disorders.
Pvexall Dyspepsia Tablets wHl in
sure healthy appetiie , aid digestion
and promote nutrition. As evi
dence of our sincere faith in Eexall
Dyspepsia Tablets , we ask you to
try them at our risk. If they do
not give you entire satisfaction , we
will return you the money you paid
as foi them , without queBtion or
formality. They come in their siz-
