Nos. 503, 525, 526

Argued March 13-14, 1902

Decided April 21, 1902

185 U.S. 213


In case statutes are alleged to be inconsistent with each other, effect must be given to both if by any reasonable interpretation that can be done, and like principles must control when the question is whether an act of Congress has been superseded in whole or in part by a subsequent treaty with a foreign nation.

These three cases were all argued together. The opinion of the Court is entitled only in No. 503, United States v. Lee Yen Tai. The case is stated in that opinion of the Court.
