U.S. Supreme Court

Battle v. United States, 209 U.S. 36 (1908)

Battle v. United States

No. 438

Submitted January 28, 1908

Decided March 2, 1908

209 U.S. 36

ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES

FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF GEORGIA

Under Article I, § 8, cl. 17, of the federal Constitution, Congress has power to purchase land within a state for post offices and courts by consent of the legislature of the state and to exercise exclusive legislation over the same.

Under §§ 711 and 5339, Rev.Stat., the United States courts have exclusive jurisdiction of all offenses enumerated in § 5339, committed in a post office owned by the United States over which the state has ceded jurisdiction.

The language of the Constitution, being wide enough to authorize the purchase of land for post offices and the acceptance of a grant of jurisdiction, the language of the statute based thereon will not be taken in any narrower sense as excluding post offices.
