Notes / Description: 

Mr. Marks of the advertising company hired Hansler to distribute to and post signs in railroad depots at Millington, Memphis, Capleville, and other unnamed locations in Tenn. The company claimed it was exempt from state taxation because the signs were printed in St. Louis. Because the company did not file a foreign charter w/the state, which was illegal, it said that the Hansler contract was invalid. Federal interstate commerce laws were violated.
