Is was admitted they were not infected

Referring te the contention that the
Colorado law is antagonists to the national

Our conclusion Is that the statute of

Its constitutionality Is not to be questioned
unless It be In violation of the constitution
of the United States Independently of any

Of the claim that one state has a right

As there was .no evidence as to the
