In the suit nf Bartram & Co. against
Collector Robertson , which W B
brought to recover the duties collected
on sugar imported from the Danish
island of St. Orolx. The cround taken
in this suit was that the United States
had a treaty with , the kin of Den
mark which stipulates that no higher
duty should bo imposed upon
its productions than on any
other foreign country , but that
treaty had since been mtdo with the
king ot the Hawaiian isltuid by which
sugar should bo admitted free of duty.
The plaintiffs claimed therefore that
the sugar produced on D.uiish terri
