Supreme Court Delivers Body Blow
To "Transition" Mongers
Tariff Charges Are Not
Washington, Dec. 2. The Unit
ed States Supremo Court today ren
dered a decision In the caso ot Kmll
J. Pcpke against the United States.
This Is tho case known ns the "four
teen diamond rings" case, and In
volves the constitutionality of tho Im
position ot customs duties upon mer
chandise brought Into the United
States from tho Philippine Islands af
ter tho exchange of the peace treaty
with Spain. The opinion wait handed
down by Chief Justice Fuller.
Thu opinion was adverser to -.tho
rlalina of tho Government, on tho
ground that tho Philippine Islands
were, at the time tho rings were
brought In, American territory; eras
ing to bo foreign territory, they be
came domestic territory, ho said. The
decision In tho Do Lima Porto Hlrnn
cases was cited at length, and It was
held that tho resolutions adopted by
Congress concerning tho Philippine-
wcro not sufficient to change the situa
tion. Tho Chief Justlco roncludrd hi
opinion by reversing tho decision of
tho court below. Justlco I row n read
an opinion concurring in th, result,
but differing from tho conclusions
drawn on minor points. Justices Orny,
Shlras, Whlto and McKennii dissent
ed. TIiIr case Is one of the two Import
ant cases left undecided by tho i-oiirt
at Its last term, when It decided a
number of cases Involving the customs
and relation of tho United States with
Its insular possessions. The cases de
cided at that time boro entirely up
on the relations of this country with
Porto Klco, and this was tho only case
of n large number which was then ar
gued and considered -which Involved
tho relations of the United States
with the Philippines. The other case
Involves the right to Imposo duty
on articles exported fro mthe United
Stntcs to Porto Illro. Much Interest
has been manifested In this Philippine
case becauso of tho probability of leg
islation relating to tho Philippines nt
the forthcoming session of Congress.
- Detail of the Case.
Tho record shows that Pepke, who
was the respondent In the court bo
low, was a soldier In the Army of tho
United States In tho island o( Luzon;
that while there and after tho rati
fication of tho peace treaty ho pur
chased tho fourteen diamond rings
which aro involved In the case. He af
terward brought these rings while
still In tho service of the United
States aboard tho United States ves
sel transporting his regiment to San
Francisco, where ho was mustered
out. Later ho camo with tho rings
to Chicago, whero the. rings were seis
ed by the customs officials under the
claim that tho Philippines were for
eign territory and merchandise
brought from those Islands were sub
ject to duties. Pepko set up the claim
that customs duties on merchandise
under the circumstances was contrary
to tho United States laws and in vio
lation of his rights as a citizen.
Tho case camo to tho Supremo
Court from the District Court of tho
United States for the northern divis
ion of Illinois. In that court tho facts
set up In Pcpko's pica wero admitted
by a demurrer filed by tho United
States and that court sustained tho
demurrer, overruling the plea and en
tering Judgment against tho merchan
dise seized and directing that 'it bo
sold In accordance with the law, and
from this decision tho present writ
of error was prosecuted.
Ceased to Be Foreign.
In his opinion In tho Philippine
case, Chief Justice Fuller said that
tho Phlllpplno Islands ceased to be
foreign territory as soon as the Paris
treaty of peaco was signed! and tho
resolutions to which ho referred as
being Ineffective and not being was
the resolution adopted by the Senate
soon after tho ratification of tho trea
ty. After stating the caso at some
length. Chief Justice Fuller quoted
soraewnat extensively from tbo opin
ion of this court In tho caso of De
Lima vs. Dldwell. Ills principal quo
tation from that caso was the para
graph Betting forth tho theory that a
country remains foreign with respect
to the tariff laws until Congress has
acted l)v embracing it within tho cus
toms. Tho opinion then continued as
"No reason is perceived for anv dif
ferent ruling as to tho Philippines,
by tho third artlclo of tho treaty Spain
coder to tho United 8tatcs 'tho archi
pelago known ns tho Philippine la!
umlg,' and tho United States agreed to
pav to Spain tho sum ot $20,000,000
within three months. Tho treaty was
ratified; Congress appropriated tho
money; tho ratification was proclaim
ed. Tho trcaty.-maklng power, tho ex
ecutive power, the legislative power,
concurred In tbo completion of tho
"The Philippines thereby ceased In
the language of the treaty to bo
Spanish.' Censing to be Spanish, they
ccaso to bo foreign country. They
came under the completo and abso

United States, and so become terri

their nationality. Their nllcglanco

thev becamo entitled to Its protcct'on.
"nut It Is said tho ens) of tho Phil
ippines Is to bo distinguished from
that of Porto Illro because on Feb
ruary 14, 1890. nfter tho ratification of
that treaty, .tho Senato rerolved that
by tho ratification of tho treaty of
peaco with Spain It Is not Intended to
Incorporate the Inhabitants of the
Philippine Islands Into tho citizenship
of tho United States, nor to perma
nently annex thoso Islands.

you think that all beers do.
The cause of biliousness is the lack of age too much haste
to put the beer on the market. To ferment beer thoroughly
requires a process of months. Without It the fermentation takes
place In your stomach. That is the cause of biliousness.

Tho meaning of the treaty cannot bo

or to place Itself In the position ot

"The sovereignty of Bpaln over tho

claimed that in carrying on the pend

that It Is preserving order and sup

tho United States. It follows that
the Jurisdiction of the United States Is
