This last is the most dangerous state in which a nation can be.
Seite 21 - Territory shall be $50,000, to be applied only for the purposes of the agricultural colleges, as defined and limited in the act of Congress approved July 2, 1862, and the act of Congress approved August 30, 1890.
Seite 49 - I furthermore give to you the power, in case twothirds of the trustees shall at any time, after the lapse of thirty years, deem it expedient, to close this trust, and of the funds which at that time shall be in the hands of yourselves and your successors, to distribute not less than two-thirds among such educational or literary institutions, or for such educational purposes as they may determine, in the States for whose benefit the income is now appointed to be used. The remainder may be distributed...

Seite 25 - The opinion of the court, after stating the facts, opens with the declaration that, " when the United States, by its authorized officer, becomes a party to negotiable paper, they have all the rights, and incur all the responsibilities, of individuals who are parties to such instruments.
