United States v. Whitridge, 197 U.S. 135 (1905)

United States v. Whitridge

No. 413

Argued January 27, 30, 1905

Decided February 27, 1905

197 U.S. 135


Under the proviso of § 25 of the Act of Congress of August 27, 1898, 28 Stat. 509, 552, the Secretary of the Treasury is authorized, when he has satisfactory evidence that the rupee price of imported goods stated in the invoice does not mean rupees at bullion value, but as a certain fraction of a pound sterling, to order a reliquidation so as to make the value in United States currency correspond with the actual value of the goods. In determining when the Secretary of the Treasury exceeded his powers under a statute, this Court may consider public facts that were known to Congress when enacting the statute and must have been before the Secretary's mind when acting thereunder, even though such facts were not produced on the trial.

The facts are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
