The case will be carried to higher tribunals by the defendants in the suit. Judge Tuley's opinión covered every phase presented by the original bilí and the ans%ver, except the constitutional question raised by the defendants. Upon this the court refuses to rule, but not, however, without expressing his opinión that there was no ground for the contention.
