U.S. Supreme Court

United States v. Realty Co., 163 U.S. 427 (1896)

United States v. Realty Company

Nos. 870, 869

Argued April 22-24, 1896

Decided May 26, 1896

163 U.S. 427


The appropriations of money by the Act of March 2, 1895, c. 189, 28 Stat. 910, 933, to be paid to certain manufacturers and producers of sugar who had complied with the provisions of the Act of October 1, 1890, c. 1244, 26 Stat. 567, were within the power of Congress to make, and were constitutional and valid.

It is within the constitutional power of Congress to determine whether claims upon the public treasury are founded upon moral and honorable obligations, and upon principles of right and justice, and having decided such questions in the affirmative, and having appropriated public money for the payment of such claims, its decision can rarely, if ever, be the subject of review by the judicial branch of the government.

The case is stated in the opinion.
