T o this e nd, thtdecilion in & Co. vs. Dibbrell & Co. in the Circuit Court of Virginia, is b eing eztoi'IIively circulated, 1n which it iY held that the complainants have "the r;ight to oJ the word ..urn svmbol of their tradt tnark.." on that the opinion of the court, in regard to the xord Durham,"la based 1. That the defendants were manufacturing in RJchmond, Va. 2. Tba.t the word "Durham" has a. l ocal geographical in the mar k e t. 3. That the ph1ase.

It will also be uoted tliat the decree exprf*ltl declart!a that the word u exclusive 11 does not apply to other parties manufacturing at this plac e and that "pers' ons otbe'r than the defencltmts are. not bound by the decree.''

4 THE TOBACCO LEAF. mous sum of nearly one million dollars. ThlS IS a fearful loss of Itself, but when to that IS added the stain which for ten long years ha.s rested upon his reputatwn for want of pubhc knowledge of the real facts ill h1s case, the extent of the mJury done him can be readily .appreciated. It 1s tune the story of h1s wrongs wa.s told Nothmg that can now be sa.1d or done will restore to hun the property or the peace of mmd of whwh he has been depnved, the action of the Supreme Court has rendered that measure of redress imposs1ble by further legal process But 1t IS or should be possible to restore to h1m the good name of wh1ch he has been despoiled, and to thls end we sha.ll proceed to review, ill the order of their occurrence a.s above given, and w1thout the OIIUSSIOn of a smgle one, the counts of the indictment. Taking the first charge, nantely, that of making a "fictitious sale," it 1s to be Ba.ld -Under the Act of June 30, 1864, Mr. Liliilllthal was manufacturing a brand of smoking tobacco ca.lled Ormoco," and paying a tax of 25 cents a pound on it By the Act of March 3, 1865, the tax on this grade of tobacco was mcrea.sed to 35 cents. The "Orinoco" wa.s made ch1efiy for army consumptiOn, and havmg a. considerable qua.nt1ty on hand, and desiring to a.vmd the payment of the mcrea.sed tax, which he would have had to do 1f he kept 1t, Mr Lilienthal sold, or a.ssumed to sell1t, m March-the new tax not gomg mto effect until Apr1l 1-to his neighbors, Messrs Kearny & Waterman, of New York City, and paid the lawful tax of 25 cents a pound on 1t He supposed, a.s any one would, that this was a. perfectly legitliDB.te transaction, the local revenue officers, who were cog ruza.nt of 1t, making no obJection, and Senator Fessenden and Representa.t1ves Morrell and Fenton, whom he consulted m Washington, a.ssurmg him he could lawfully sell to whomsoever he pleased m order to save 10 cents a. pound tax, the Hon Mr Morrell suggestmg Mr. Lilienthal's own clerk or bookkeeper as a proper person This lot of tobacco was subsequently consigned by Mr. Lilienthal to a Mr Coleman at San Fra.nclSCo, but not until the tax rate had been aga.m changed, and this trme reduced on this grade to 15 cents a pound, and on this consignment the Government claimed a second tax This cla1m was the ground for the charge madeJ.n the first count of havmg failed to pay the tax when the tobacco was actually sold. It was generally understood that tobacco and c1gar m.a.nufacturers m all parts of the country sold the1r old stock m advance of the new tax, as Mr Lilienthal did, and nobody m the tobacco trade 1magmed there was any rmpropriety m doing so. Wruvmg a.ll other to the legality of thiS transactiOn, It is enough to show Its legality to say that if a prospective nnpendmg law IS a bar to sale at the eX18tmg rate of tax, sales at the exiSting rate can never be lawfully, smce a new law With a h1gher rate lS liable to be and inlposed a.t any)inle when Congress 1s in sess1on. The second count refers to the "Extra Long" smok mg tobacco. The Act of July 13, 1866, prov1ded that Smokmg tobacco, if manufactured or cut m such a manner as to mclude the entire stem, and w1thout be ing sweetened, 1s liable only to a tax of 15 cents per pound." Mr. Lilienthal prepared the '' Extra Long brand by taking out of the leaf from two thirds to three fourtllS of the stem and subsequently addmg stem m excess of that removed to the extent of 14 pounds to every 100 pounds of leaf To assure hun self that th1s tobacco was taxable at 15 cents per pound, instead of 40 cents, he took pams to ascertrun the v1ews of the CommiSSIOner of Internal Revenue, E A Rollins on the subJect After protracted consideration he was mformed by the Comrmss10ner that the tax was 15 cents COmmlSBIOner Rollins test1fied under oath before U S Comml8Swner Osborne respecting the frequency of Mr Lil1entha.l's commuwcat10ns and mterviews relative to this subJect, and the d18cussiOns m hlS office w1th Deputy COIDm!BBloner Harland, Mr Kimba.ll, Mr. Parnell a.n!l Mr Lilienthal at d1fferent t1mes Here IS a synops1s of some of his tes tnnony -" Mr Lilienthal brought me samples to illus trate the process of manufacture I dec1ded with Deputy Comm19s1oner Harland that the tax was 15 .cents, and assented to h1s telegram to Mr Lilienthal flrmanent associatwn, w1th E H. Gnest as pres1dent, and H Meyer as treasurer. The Idea IS a laudable one, and we should be glad to see 1t prevailing in a.ll branches of the tobacco trade. Gon ABROAD -Among others who have made the ParlS Expos1t10n an occasiOn for leaVIng the Unitet States for a temporary sojourn m Europe this summer, we are penmtted to mention Mr. Joseph Ha.ll, the noted retired c1gar manufacturer, who left this e1t;r on Saturday ma steamer Devoma for Glasgow. Th1s 18 the third or fourth v1s1t that Mr Ha.ll has to Europe withm the past few years m pursu1t of recrea tion, his wealth and leiSure enabling him to gratify his taste for travel to an unlliDlted extent Havmg repeatedly gone the rounds of Great Br1tam and the Contment, there 18 little m the way of novelty for Mr. Hall to seek from his present tnp, but his observant nature and thorough appreCiatwn of everything that IS good, whether old or new, are a. guaranty that he will succeed m derivmg both enjoyment and dlverttsement m h1s rambles amid familiar scenes. The best wishes of m.a.ny steadfast friends w1ll attend h1m in his journeymgs, and a welcome awaits hiS return litrSINESS XENTIOB.

He)ald down thlS general proposition that wheneTer you impose a tax, or whenever you Increase a tax, and it does not pro duce a corresponding Increase in the revenue, such a tax ts unjust and works rb.ere oppression to th.e.industry ''hich is the subject of 1t The etrect of a high tax hi to diminish the number of men who have capital enough to go Into the manufacture It bas a tendency to throw the whole manufacture of tobacco mto the h&nds of a few He osked v; ho were opposing this reduction It was the manufacturers of the great centers who wished to monopolize the business, men he aa.Jd, like the Loiillards of New York, who want to keep everybody from manufacturing tobacco except themselves H e sa.yB'Remove your high tax, let the bUSI.neu of manufacturing toba.cco be opened to men ot small means a.nd limited capttal Thil Will make the manufacturers numerous, the lea.! growe r will have a larger number of customers to sell to, and will receive conse quently a larger price for his commodity He showed tha.t in conse quence of the high tax 60 million pounds or tobacco were raised and prepared by consumen themselves, and consequently patd no tax He claimed that the revenues were on thts ground greatly injured, and that the habit of raising e. home supply of leaf is rapidly extending over the country He says there is only one way to stop this those who use the leaf in th1s way would prefer to have the regular article manufactured and prepared in the proper manner But U they are compelled to pay such an exorbitant taJ:: .and high price for it, they Will resort to this m ea11,1 of suppl:ying themselves and mate Jt do If you keep up the tax, he said, you break down the regular tobacco trade and break doll n with it the revenue THE EFFECT UPON THE REVENUE Be u.ld that last year the re"'enue from tob&cco was Sit 106,Mft Of this, $1,898,500 was raised from 1peclal taxes on dealers, etc They have not proposed to change that tax The amount raised from cigars is Sll,OII1,278. We propose to reduce the tax on these merely from $6 to $5 a thousand. There wuraiaed. 12!,148,767 !rom manufactured tobacco and mulf, and on thfo the proposition Is to reduce the tax to I6 centa Tbeoe cbangee In the tax, aecordlnr to the moot Uberal estimates, will not cut down the revenue even for the next year more than six mlllion dollars. Tbooe being thellgil...,., he hoped tblo CoDgi'OIII would not refuae to make the reduction when be h&d lbown that we have an excess of revenue o! 18 million dollara, if thelfntlng fund be suapended, "" be hoped It would be I!US))Onded. The Committee on Ways and Means have agreed to report In ta.or of oupendlnr further payments Into tblo fund untU 18811, and. be hoped the Bouee would adopt the report But if gentlemen continue to fnolat upon paying tbe principal of the Public Debt, be asked if 5!,1500,000 a month. or ao mllllons a yea.r, il not paying it fast enough U, be said, we Jl&R8 the Income TAX bill, we aball have &eTeral more milllon dollars than be had eotfmated, and if Instead of leaving the tariff u it now fs, raising only 80 millions, the new bill would be pa.ued, acoordiDc to calcu l&tJona which he did noC think extravagant, they would raise many more miWon.s.

The concessiOn to dealers which he so much 1s a very small affair, as far as the wr1ter knows, it lS ouly the privi lege of havmg the dealer's name on the caut1on not1ce, wh1le the m.a.nufacturer's name 1s on each package twwe, branded or stenc1led on s1de or end of each package over ten pounds, 111 plam letters, and wr1tten on each Government stamp The matter of brands and labels the Government don't interfere w1th, as that ill only a necessary convenience between the m.a.nufacturers and dealers; the consumer seldom knows or cares who of the thousand manufacturers made the d1me or quarter's worth of tobacco or cigars which he buys, prov1ded the art1cle pleases hnn It IS well known that 1t Is ouly since the advent of buckets or pails as pac;ka.ges for fine-cut that labels have come illto common use on fine-cut tobacco. At first the m.a.nufa.cturer had a label for each of the five or SIX grades of tobacco they now they have a dozel1 or more for each grade, sending them around as regularly as they do the1r sa.mples, and often show them before they do thSlr tobacco. This 1s not a.ll, they w1ll put a label on ten palls to a retailer w1th his name prmted on 1t, and some of them w1ll put up two under the same label-to two different buyers, of course. All m.a.nufacturers don't do this, 1t ill done by too many of them, nevertheless. Again, there are very few jobbers\ 1f any, that get up their own labels and own them aDSOlutely, when tliey find a tobacco that pleases them and takes well w1th thmr customers, they natura.lly w1sh to retain the sale of 1t; not for the purpose of cuttmg under the1r ne1ghbors, but that the;r may obtain a better margm Without the fear of their compet1tors cuttmg pnces I cannot comprehend wllat a JObber would be thinking about that would deliberately have put up an infe rior grade of tobacco under a. brand that he had gotten up a good profitable trade on, wh1ch 1s the only obJect of havmg a pnvate brand, nor can I conce1ve how a manufacturer that had any regard for the repu tation of his goods would consent to do it, especia.lly as m nme cases out of ten the label IS hlS own, although he may for a time have giVen 1t to a dealer I know of nomsta.nce where a manufacturer was not benefited as well as the dealer by JUdiCiously giving the Jobber tbmr own labels On the contrary, I can giVe a number of mstances where 1t was of mutual benefit I have known a common smoking under a private wrapper sold mvanably at one cent a pomld higher than the same tobacco under the factory brand, and that continuously for some years The dealer d1d not keep nor sell the factory's brand, but all hiS competitors d1d, and theu nrune was legion. To-day that same factory brand IS bemg sold at cost, less the fre1ght. The same {>nvate brand could be sold to-day largely at regular pnces, but It lS out of the market. I know of MAY 13 an arrangemen t w1th a Richmond, Va house made in 1866 The contract on the s1de of the factory was an old discarded label, not to be given to any one ebie anywhere, the tobacco to be fully up to sample at all t1mes On the other s1de an order for 5,000 cadd1es tobacco to be ehvered during the summer, and from then to 5,000 cadd1es yearly afterwards This arrange ment, I tbmk, was mutually beneficial for rune years. Another arrangement was made With an Eastern house m the same way, but on different terms to suit the cnso. Th1s one lasted five or six years. I know of several equa.lly benefimal arrangements for fine cut It would take too much spa.oe to cite them I Will mention one of a. hundred msta.nces on the other Blde-.a large Western plug house, whose to ba.ccos was ill every one's mouth (no pun) m four or five Western States Th1s tobacco was never put up under any pr1va.te brand. In 1870 It wa.s being sold in one State at one cent less than factory pnoe, and in another State at factory prJCe to one cent over. Nearly every jobber kept It m stock, and every retailer would ask for It The coneequence was, it was cut out of ex1stence m four or five years from the firet time 1t WIIS made The next thmg to be considered IB a remedy for the evil complamed of Your writer suggests a combina tion Well, d1d he ever have any experience in that lmei I guess not, or he would know that comb1natioJJII seldom last long enough to let the ink dry w1th which are wntten I cannot g-Ive a remedy, but I w11l g1ve my exper1ence A few years salesman of a large concern came mto my office to sell me toliaccO: It lS not necessary here to g1ve the conversation we had, even if I could. Before he went out he got a pretty large order, probably for four times more tO bacco than he expected to sell 1n the city. He wu very naturally pleased, so much so that he could n,ot keep It to himself, but went out to one of and I suppose, as an mducement to buy, discloSed the whole transact1on w1th me One of t'h., members of tb,e firm told me of ,1t m -lesa.l;han half an hour. A member of another finn paesing the door, said to me, '' Ah, you gave Blafik a pretty good order for tobacco to day A JUruor member of a large retail house told me of 1t on the street, all mside of two hours after. I was provoked I natura.lly concluded that he told all the other Jobbers and large retailers in the city before he left town I countermanded the order that by telegraph A year_or so the agent of a large called on me for an order I gave h1m one a.s if not larger than the one I gave the former, be boliilted 1t !'nd b1d me good day, saymg he must hurry to.., railroad. On bemg asked 1f he was not goillll' to call on any of the other houses, "No," he sa1d, .,., I have sold all the goods here 1 want to : Any manufac,urer that reads the above may draw his own conclusiOns. There 1s one more subJect I wtll refer to and have done That 18 the deterwratwn m the average quality of the fine cut tobacco now sold Your writer tr1es to shove th18 evil on the dealer. ThiS II! a matter ne1ther the manufacturer nor dealer can obv111.te The difference in pr1ce between the loweet and the highest grade of fine cut at the factory 1s 40 cents a pound, and a still greater d1fference at the retailer's Money, in the West espeCially, 18 very scarce; consumenJ of to bacco must economize, as well as others. one that would not thmk of usmg a. low grade of 1f the d1fference was only 10 or 20 cents a pound, will buy and use a very low graqe the difference IS 40 to 60 cents The demand for {>lug is the reverse; the difference m the lowest and h1ghest grades 1s not over 10 <:ents, therefore the demand for the better grade of naVies contmues, and ill fact mcreases It lS harder to sell a poor navy tobacco than to sell the lowes$ grade of fin& cut Th1s matter of economy IS still more appliCable to cigars than fine-cut, as any one may well know that IS aware of the great demand for stogies My steam IS exhausted A HolJsTON, Jobber m Manufactured Tobacco, ColumbUI!, 0 Special Crop Reports to "The Tobacco Leaf." CONNECTJCUT Wtndsor, Hartford Co, May .8We have had a very early sprmg thiS season, and, therefore, the tobacco plants are very early, and some growers are taking off the glass from thmr hot beds so as to keep back the plants The growers never had such luck before m ra.Ismg plants as they have had this year, for they all sowed the1r on the 'don't care pnnciple (priCes bemg so low last year), and I think abOut every. grower has plants enough of hiS own th1s year. The acreage Will be reduced sowewhat from that of last season, but not as much as year before. There lS but a very httle fert1lizer used th1s year, and this will be of some benetlt to the quahty of the crops. KENTUCKY Olmstead, Loaan Co May 8 -T E B reports.-It is difficult to make estimates of crops before they are planted, as contingenCies of seasons and other agenc1es calculated to illCrease or reduce them cannot be fore seen and valued I have made a close and careful m vest1gat10n of the present situatiOn and state of preparatwn for the commg tobacco crop, and have formed the followmg conclusiOns -That the prepara tiOn IB for one less acreage than that of year, that planters, bemg fully convmced that a large crop th1s year Will 1 esult m st1ll lower prwes, and havmg an unusually large acreage of other crops, are md1f ferent as to the tobacco orop, and that, owmg to de struct10n of plants by the fly, not more than half of> last ;rear's acreage can be planted, w1th the propabili tleB m favor of an acreage less than half Cadtz, Tl'tgg Co Mau 7 -J F W reports -The {>rospect for Ia.Ismg a. tobacco crop ill this and the ad JOmmg count1es 1s very gloomy, but I th1nk 1t 1s somewhat better than ill 1876 Some of the earliest plant-beds are tolerably well. but a. large m.a.

ManufacturedThere b&e been a steady but moderate demand throughout the week for Cave'ndtsh tobacco. The sales embraced all styles and grades, mcludmg 96 ,70 7 pounds' for export In tax-prud goods qmetude still' prevails, as a matter of course, and w1ll contmue to do so until it 1s defimtely determmed what the future tax 1s to be-which it lB to be hoped w1ll be known wthin the next few days. SmQ/ring.-For smoking tobacco the demand has been regular, but contlned as usual m these ttmes to goods for immediate use. Local and inter10r buyers are anx10us to mcrease thetr stock, but do not dare to do so until there has been an adjustment made con cerning the future rate of tax. Ctgars -Manufacturers and importers announce a fairly act1ve demand for both mty and country. trade. Orders from JObbers are daily received and promptly supplied. 'l'he quest10n of the rate of tax, whether It shall be as now, per 1,000, or as proposed, IS per 1,000, does not seem to matenally affect the mquey, buyers appearing ruuious to secure cho1ce goods as soon a.e they are offered. Havana adVJces are as follow11:-" The unexpected withholdmg of'Iarge orders from abroad has compelled several of our leadmg manufacturers to d1sm1ss a number of their b&nds, and b&e imparted a duller tone to the JQ&rket in general.
