U.S. Supreme Court

The Newfoundland, 176 U.S. 97 (1900)

The Newfoundland

No. 156

Argued November 3, 6, 1899

Decided January 15, 1900

176 U.S. 97


The question in this case is as to the adequacy of the proof offered on behalf of the government and the captors to show that the Newfoundland was trying to violate the blockade of Havana, and the court is of opinion that it does not attain to that degree which affords a reasonable assurance of the justice of the sentence of forfeiture in the court below -- that it raises doubts and suspicions and makes probable cause for the capture of the ship and justification of her captors, but not forfeiture.
