Not illustrated. 1916 edition. Excerpt: ...v. Detroit, 181 U. S. 396, 45 L. Ed. 914, and in Detroit v. Parker, 181 L'. S. 399, 45 L. Ed. 917, in which last case it again appeared that no provision was made for a hearing as to benefits; in Shumate v. Heman, 181 U. S. 402, 45 L.

An assessment by frontage of three-fourths of the cost of paving a street was sustained in C/zudtvick v. Kelly (1903), 187 U. S. 5-10, 47 L. Ed. 293; and the entire cost of similar paving was held properly imposed on the abutters in Schaefer v. Werling (1903), 188 U. S. 516, 47 L. Ed. 570, though in that case the Court pointed out that the State Court had...
