Syllabus

The transportation in bond from Canada through the United States of whisky intended as a beverage, destined to a foreign country, and transshipment of whisky from one British ship to another in a port of the United States, are forbidden by the Eighteenth Amendment and the National Prohibition Act, which, in this regard, supersede the provisions of Rev.Stats., § 3005, as amended, and Art. XXIX of the Treaty with Great Britain of May 8, 1871 (if it was not previously abrogated), authorizing transit of foreign merchandise through this country without payment of duty. P. 259 U. S. 88.

275 F. 373 (No. 615) reversed. No. 639 affirmed.
