U.S. Supreme Court

Fourteen Diamond Rings v. United States, 183 U.S. 176 (1901)

Fourteen Diamond Rings v. United States

No. 153

Argued December 17-20, 1900

Decided December 2, 1901

183 U.S. 176

Syllabus

1. The ruling in De Lima v. Bidwell, 182 U. S. 1, reaffirmed and applied.

2. No distinction, so far as the question determined in that case is concerned, can be made between the Philippines and the Island of Porto Rico, after the ratification of the Treaty of Peace between the United States and Spain, April 11, 1899, and certainly not

(a) Because of the passage by the Senate alone, by a majority, but not two-thirds of a quorum, of a joint resolution in respect to the intention of the Senate in the ratification;

(b) Or because of the armed resistance of the native inhabitants, or of uncivilized tribes, in the Philippines, to the dominion of the United States;

(c) Or because one of the Justices who concurred in the judgment in De Lima v. Bidwell also concurred in the judgment in Downes v. Bidwell, 182 U. S. 244.

The statement of the case will be found in the opinion of the

Court. The case was argued December 17, 18, 19 and 20, 1900. Goetze, Appellant v. United States was heard at the same time. Leave was granted in this case to Mr. Alexander Porter Morse to file a brief on behalf of interested parties. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
