UNITED STATES v. CURLEY et a!.
(Circuit Court, S, D. New York.
February 7. 1895.)
CUSTOMS DUTIES-ACT OF OCTOBER
I, 1890-CoOKS' KNIVES. Certain knives. used in the kitchen by cooks, held to be dutiable under paragraph 167, and not as a manufacture of metal, under paragraph 215. of the act of October I, 1890.
The importer Is bound by his protest and cannot go outside of it.
Appeal by the United States from a decision of the board of general appraisers reversing the action of the collector in assessing duty upon certain knives under paragraph 167 of the tariff act of 1890. Wallace Macfarlane, U. S. Atty., and Henry C. Platt, for the United States. Edward Hartley, for importers. COXE, District Judge (orally). The question in this cause is whether or not the importation, which was assessed by the collector as a cook's' knife, should. have been classified as a manufacture of metal under paragraph 215 of the tariff act of 1890. The uncontradicted evidence shows that the importation in question is either a cook's knife, a kitchen knife, or a butcher's knife. These knives are all provided for in paragraph 167 ,and each is a more specifio designation than a "mauufacture of metal." As the importers only protest upon the ground that the importation is a manufacture of metal, it is mooifest that the decision of the board of general appraisers should be reversed.
In reFELLHEIMER et a!.
(Circuit Court. S. D. New York. April 27, No. 747.
CUSTOMS DUTIES-CLASSIFICATION JACQUARD ATTACHMENT.
WEARING ApPAREL MADE ON LOOM 'WITH
A fabric made on a loom with a Jacquard attachment, and which is not known iJ;l the trade as "embroidery," or an "article of wearing apparel embroidered by hand or machine," cannot be classified under Act Oct. I, 1890, par. 373, referring' to embroidered articles.
This. was an application by Fellheimer & Lindauer, importers of certain articles of wearing apparel for women, for a review of the decision of the board of general appraisers sustaining the decision of the collector of the port of New York as to the rate of duty on such .
lIERMANN tI. UNITED .STA1ES.
The importations consisted of articles of wearing apparel for women, appropriately trimmed. The collector assessed them under 373 of the. act of 1890. The importers protested, under paragraph 349 of same act. David Ives Mackie, for importers. James T. Van Rensselaer, for collector. COXE, District Judge (orally). It seems to me that the proposition that a fabric made on a loom with a Jacquard attachment is not embroidery, has been determined by the circuit court of appeals. U. S. v. Albert, 9 C. C. A. 332, 60 Fed. 1012. How can a machine that is incapable of embroidering dots, sprays, etc., embroider the figures appearing on the article in suit? I do not see how I can say that the same machine which the court has held cannot embroider, can embroider. The two cases cannot be distinguished. It is clear, in view of this decision, that the court cannot say that a fabric made in this way is embroidered. It would create an unfortunate conflict of authority to hold in one case that a machine can embroider when in another case it is held that the same machine cannot embroider. The circuit court of appeals having decided that a loom with a Jacquard attachment cannot do embroidery work the only remaining question is whether or not a trade-name has been established by the respondent. Upon that proposition it is conceded, as I understand it, that the question is in doubt, with a larger number of witnesses testifying against the contention of the collector than supporting it. The fact that a trade-name has not been established by either side compels the court to determine what in fact the article is, whether it is in fact embroidered. As to that proposition I have no doubt There is no evidence that the loom described can do embroidery work, and as I recall the testimony it is well-nigh unanimous that the machine cannot do embroidery work. In fact I could go further and say, if I were called upon to decide, on this evidence, what the trade-name was in this market on October 1, 1890, that tbis importation was not known in trade and commerce as "embroidery" or as an Ilarticle of wearing apparel embroidered by hand or machine," under paragraph 373 of the tariff act of 1890. I think the decision of the board of general appraisers, so far as it relates to the question discussed, should be reversed.
