The offence charged against these eminently' respect able firms is that of having packed fine-cut chewing tobacco in one-ounce packages over-weight. The lia bility of tobacco manufacturers, if they do not constantly watch their operatives, to accidentally Or M>Dt to Sv.bocriben to THE TOBACCO LEAF, witb this technical violation of law, is so well known, and a cop:y of THE for One Year, for 110 generally excused on account of the diJiiculty of WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. Th..e tobacc,o interest, all br!J.nciles of it, in_this citr, judgi.lrg bythe expressions of opposition )!:eard on all sides, eBtertains such a feeling of aversion to Mr. Isaac HIU'vey, Deputy eellector of Internal Revenue, that his resignation sliould be accepted without a moment' s It is averred that this community will not tolerate him in an official capacity. THE REIGN OF TERROR RESTORED. preventing it, that the friends and acquaintances of the alleged offending firms were greatly surprised, as well as grieved, to learn that the revenue authorities had resorted to extreme measures for the purpose of punishing them for the unintentional irregularity; indeed, much indignation is expressed on the subject by nearly all prominent tobacco tradesmen. The reputation and standing of these manufacturel'l! are so well established as to render it impossible for any one to believe they would connive at an infraction of the revenue law in their respective establishments; and Within the past few days events have transpired in the harsh usage to which they have been subjected is connection with the internal revenue service in this looked upon by those who know them as something vicinity which justify the assumption that we hav.t. closely allied to persecution. The following statements or are about to have, a restoration of the reign of terror the affair were made to us by Mr. Lyall in the tobacco and cigar trades which for several years and Mr. Buchner, Jr., the gentleman suffering arrest. disgraced the administration of the revenue laws in Mr. Lyall said:-New York and environs, and culminated, finally, in "Mr. Harvey and Mr. Hawley came to our factory the compulsory removal in disrepute of the officials on Saturday, May 18, and requested to see our fine-cut who inspired it.

I took them up-stairs and they com the seizure of a tobacco factory, and the menced to our 'Flush' tobO:cco a brand of arrest of a member of a tobacco firm. chewing which we are making in conjunction with our other manufactures. We weighed several To make our caption clear in this connection, it is lots, and, to my surprise, found them heavy. I then proper to indulge in a brief retrospect. From Septemcalled our foreman of the fine-cut factory, and apprised ber 1, 1862, when our internal revenue system was in-him that our tobacco was over-weight and asked him for an explanation. The foreman said he thought the auguraood, until the of July 20, 1868, went into scales must be wrong. We then tried other scales and, neither tax-rmyen nor revenue officers were found the same resnlt. I called the subjoot to serious statutory constraint. The several superiutendenta:r.d asked him why the 'Flush' tobacco intervening laws were more' or less crude, and the obwas put up in excess of thu required weight and he ligations and duties of both tax-payers and officials said he waa not aware that it was over-weight. I a.t once ordered our operatives to sto)J packing and to were few and vaguely defined, Under this condition unpack all the tobacco and repack it right, also of things many unintentional and some intentional not to send out from the factory any of the tobacco acts of omission and commission in alleged and actual until it had been submitted to the revenue authorities .contravention of the laws were brought to light and I made no note.during the operation of weighing but Mr. Harvey's memoranda indicated that there was an punishment.

As the officers were about to leave I asked who ruled these interests with the sway of an emperor. them to come in and try our plug tobacco. Mr: Harvey With the aid of assistants, he disclosed; or seemed to said he supl_)osed that all rfght, and he would not give the subJeCt any consideration then. He told disclo,.se, irregularities in all directions, and imposed me to call on Webster at 11 o'clock on Monday. I did and collected fines and effected compromises ad libi-so, and found Webster and Hawley in the office tum, the laws allowing him, as informer, one-half of Harvey coming in shortly after. After talking awhile' all he collected from real or supposed transgressors. Webster said that he have to put a keeper in He continued in this position until the spring of 1870, factory, an!l I told hun that was unnecessary, as we were not likely to run away.

IS glVen at pounds The av;erage ret&il llXCeedmgly h1gb Estimates for the Budget of 1876 and 1877 place the total con sumpt10n at 23,000,000 pounds, whwh was expected to y1eld the Government a net revenue of 101,000,000 p1setas, or say t20,000,000 In Turkey the duty 1s 50c gold per ounces, or about 75c per pound In Russm the duty on leaf tobacco IS 4 roubles and 10 copestas (about $3) per pud (about 36 pounds) Ger many IS one of the very few fore1gn countnes whwh has a low rate of duty on tobacco, that 1s about 4 thalers, or say $2 89 per 100 pounds, but at the last sesswn of the German Rewhstag, Chancellor Bismarck mtroduce d motwns lookmg towards a mcrease m the rate of tax on tobacco, or the establiShment of a Government monopoly In additiOn, the Amencan system of Internal Revenue tax IS h1ghly favored, m 01 der to der1ve a suffiCient revenue to supply the de fiCJency m her exchequer ColillillSsJOneJ s from that country are now m the Umted States mvest1gatmg our system of collectmg the tax, and w1ll probably report favorably on 1ts adoptiOn From these facts we argue that 1f the Ia bormg poor of Ew ope can affm d to pay such enormous dut1es or taxes upon tobacco w1thout reducmg consumptiOn mater1ally, then the sequence IS that the Amencan artiSan can ce1 tamly afford the present rate of tax of 24c per pound, 01 1f he could not, Congress would be ove1whelmed With com :plamts and pet1t10ns from him, as well liS the manu facturer 2d It 1s also stated by those favormg a reduced rate of tax that the consumption of the article IS largely decreased by reason of the present rate The records of the Internal Revenue Department, however, pro> e that the story 1s wholly w1thout foundatiOn 'lhe collectiOns for the year 1872, when chewmg tobacco and snuff were taxed at 32 cents and smokmg tobacco at 16 cents, show that over 95,209,319 pounds were brought to taxatwn In 1873, "\\ Ith the rate of tax fixed at 20c, 114,789 208 pounds were brought to taxa twn In 1874 at the same 20 cent rate, 107 747,691 pounds were brought to taxatiOn In 1876, with the tax rate at 24 cents per pound on che" mg and smok 1ng and 32 cents on snuff, 110 357,000 pounds were brought to taxation In 1877 With the same 1ate of tax ex!Stmg over 116,000,000 pounds were to taxatwn Th1s enumeratiOn does not mcluae the wBlght of c1gars consumed, nBJther such tobacco as IS consumed m a raw state, which IS mdulged m throughout the country, espec1ally m the SoutheJn States Tobacco 1s grown m almost every State m the Umon, and very many consumers prefer the raw leaf, prov1ded 1t IS of good qual1ty and has been well cured The leaves a1e twisted mto a coil and cut as reqmred, e1ther for the p1pe or the mouth, m this way a great deal escapes taxatwn and the census taker's enumera twn, and may account for the apparent hght consump twn where 1ts use Is so general It IS safe to say that between three and four J?OUnds 1s the average annual consumptiOn per cap1ta m this country Ne1ther statiStiCs nor personal expenence proves that the consumptiOn o.f tobacco IS at all dnmmshed by the present rate of tax and by reason of the tax bemg first collected of the manufacturer, the consumer m rune cases out of ten IS not aware that he pays any tax, or 1f he does how much he pays, and all expen ence proves that those taxes are most cheerfully borne by the people whwh are not felt or obv1ously forced upon tberr not1ce And 1f the consumer IS so poor as to be unable to contribute hiS m1te toward the susten ance of the Government, then he certa1nly has the r1ght under the present Internal Revenue laws tora!SB a small garden patch for h1s own consumptiOn 3rd It has also been freely asserted by those favor mg a reductwn m the rate of tax that 1t bears w1th great hardship upon the plantmg mterest m reducmg the pr1ce of leaf tobacco This statement IS also falla C!Ous The pr1ce of leaf tobacco IS governed by stock on hand 1ts quality and the demand Government reports show that the export demand IS fully tw1ce that ofnome consumptwn From 1790 to 1877 fore1gn sb1p. ments were 9,9.29,193 hhds, averagmg 1,400 lbil each.

The figures we have quoted may be relied upon, as they have been gathered from official souroes and also from New YOl'k Chamber of Commerce from 1868 to date If m your Judgment ls deemed ad viiiable to reduce the rate of on tobacco, then as a measure of eqmty the Government should allow a rebate of the. tax equivalent to Ule,dilference be\ween the old and the new, on all tobacco now m the hands of manufp.cturers and dealers upon wh1ch the tax has been pa1d, because the manufacturer or dealllr havmg pa1d the tax on the stock wh1ch he has on hand (..mountmg to about 50,000,000 lbs), if the raie should dechne 8 cents per lb the loss entailed upon such dealers would to $4,000 000, and such a loss occurnng at the end of a dull and unprofitable blliJIJlesa period, would be suffiCient to send thousa.ncts of them mto bankruptcy, and cause Irreparable mJury mother ways Furthermore, If the tax IS reduced to 16 cents per pound, then 1t follows that the Government would receive but about t19,000,000 gross revenue from thw source, from wh1ch we must deduct the sum of about $1,600,000 for cost of collectwn, and 1f a rebate IB al lowed the dealers on the tax-pa1d on hand, U, 000,000 must also be deducted; which would leave a net result to the Government of about $18,000,000 from tobacco (exclusive of ,ctgars) We are well satisfied that any such approxrmate result would have of agam }ncl:easmg the rate of tax next year, w}uln busmell6 would agam become unsettled, trade ae stroyed, manufacturers, dealers and operatives inJured, Without any correspondmg benefit save to a few 11pecu lp.tors It has also been freely asserted on the floor of the House that our firm 1s the only one m favor of al lowmg the tax to remam as 1t I& Th1s IS not correct, w'e nnght name a large 'number of the pnnCJpal manu facture1s North, South, East and West, those who do the great bulk of the enttre manufacturmg busmessof the countrJ[, who mamtrun the same views as our selves We quote from the speech of the Hon W M Rob bms of North Carolma, delivered May 8, 1878, who IS repo1ted to have sa1d -"Who 1s opposmg the re ductwn of the tobacco tax t It 1s the manufac.turers m the p eat centrea who WISh to monopohze 'the bus1 ness men hke the Lor1llards of :!'few York, who want to keep everybody from manufacturmg tobacco excepi themselves etc etc We beg to say that we d1savow any such mtent1on even 1f 1t were possible, but were spectfully ask 1f our VIews are not ent1tled to a hear mg as w e ll as some of the small manufacturers among his const1tuency, when It IS borne m mmd that we have never defrauded the Govl)rnment of a dollar, but have dunng 1ihe past twelve years pa1d the Internal Revenue Department over $.20,000,000 m taxes The Hon Mr Cabell, of V1rgmm, m h1s speech of May 2, 1878, smd The largest manufacturers of the countr) those who have grown to the proportiOn of monopolists, do not WISh the tax reduced Of course they don' t t)le high rate IS a blessmg to them, 1t ex eludes from the market men of lim1ted means, while 1t builds up cap1tahsts Give the monopolists a good chance, keep up the present rate of taxatiOn, and soon you Wtll see all the dealers of moderate means dnven from the trade, and the plantmg commumt1es and the1r p10ducts subm1tted to the t ender merCies of those pnvlleged, bloate d vultures, who, bavmg by aid of a system of class broken down compet1 t10u, not m dev1lish glee over the profits extorted from a Wionged and helpless people Able coadJutors, too, m this work of oppresswn, do these monopolists find m the SeCJetary of the Treasury and the CommiB swner of Internal Revenue we are the largest manufacturers of tobacco m the Umted States, paymg a larger amount of tax annually than all the manufac turers of any one State, exceptmg only VIrglllia, ac cordmg to the Intmnal Revenue records, the Hon. gentleman must have 1eferred to us, for wh1ch grstu ttous advert1smg we are under great obligations.
