U.S. Supreme Court

Dewey v. United States, 178 U.S. 510 (1900)

Dewey v. United States

No. 648

Argued April 10, 1900

Decided May 28, 1900

178 U.S. 510


In this case, it was rightly decided in the court below that in determining, under the provisions of Rev.Stat. sec. 902, whether the Spanish vessels sunk or destroyed at Manila were of inferior or superior force to the American vessels engaged in that battle, the land batteries, mines, and torpedoes not controlled by those in charge of the Spanish vessels, but which supported those vessels, were to be excluded altogether from consideration, and that the size and armaments of the vessels sunk or destroyed, together with the number of men upon them, were alone to be regarded in determining the amount of the bounty to be awarded.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
