SUPREME COURTAPniL TERM.
ik)li:, .i., 1'iir.simxo.
(Continued from yeslcidny.)
K tbo plaintiff has any right to
suo at all, ho lins a right to sue for
a violation of tho revenue laws, but
there is no such allegation that there
has been a violation of these laws.
Tho complaint only says that goods
havo been withdrawn fiom the Uis
torn House,and that is not mentioned
in tho statute defining a violation
of the revenuo Jaw. The law also
savs that anv action for the violation
of the lcvonue laws must be brought
within six months from the time of
such violation. This statute is as
binding on the Government ns on
tho individual. Tho Government
made tho statute and expressly
slated therein that no action should
be brought after six months.
This is an action of assumpsit for
what? Thcic is nothing set forth in
the complaint that we promised to
pity. The Collcctor-Gcncial 1ms no
right to lei anything go out of his
hands without the payment of duties
in cash or an appiovcd bond for tho
same. The only action that could be
sustained, would be for trespass, in
roods out of the Custom
without the payment of
The statute states how the re
venue laws can be violated, and how
such violation can be punished, and
I contend that the btatutc of limita
tion bars all action in this case, and
for the same reasons the Collector
Gcncial is barred fiom all action.
The Attorney-Geiieinl then rc
plid. The counsel has shown where
the Collector-General is authorised
to bring suit, lie niso states that this
suit was brought under Section GOG
of tho Civil Code, for the violation
of the revenuo laws, yet it does not
follow that the suit was biought for
a violation of the lcvenucs, but to
recover lnonoy on a contract. This
as contract pure and simple.
Smuggling is a crime, but certain
violations of the lcvcnuciaw sue not
ciiminal. The action to be brought
within six months means a criminal
one, wheic persons are caught in
the act of smuggling or other crim
inal violations. The monetary lia
bility of the owner of goods, or oi
a vessel for the violation 'of the re
venue law docs not cxpiic by limi
tation. It is the universal law that
the statute of limitation does not run
against an estate, and there is no
statute to lebnt this statement. On
the other hand we have a statute
that allows G years in which to bring
an action on contract, and wc main
tain that this is a contract.
The Court should not accord aivy
force to the statute of limitation.
A more liberal slandaid should pre
vail where the rights of the Govern
ment arc at stake, than that of a
Mr. Neumann then stated that
this was not an action on contiact,
and was thcrefoio barred by limita
tion. The Attorney-General said that it
was sometimes advisable, to follow
out a statute to its logical conclu
sion. Opposite counsel states that
the law says, that after six months,
goods that are withdrawn from the
Custom House without the payment
of duties, the power of the Govern
ment lapses for the forcible collec
tion of the same. If that be the
case the Government would be com
pletely at the mercy of conspira
tors. As a mutter of fact it was
known that these goods were with
drawn at the time, but it could have
been done by conspiracy, and it is
the duty of the court to sustain the
Government in obtaining its dues.
In reply Mr. Neumann said, the
main stress that the Attorney-Gen-
eial lays on this case is, that the
Couit lias the power to legislate, but
I think that tho Court will not at
tempt to do anything of the kind, or
tiy to twist or waip the laws passed
by the Legislature, lie then quoted
from statutory laws that "when the
legislature makes no exceptions, the
Court cannot make them." The
statute says, "all suits aiising out of
the violation of the revenue laws
must be brought within a certain
In order to make a contract valid
there must he a consideration, and
I would like to have the Attorney-G;it-ra!
show me where the consi
fUrtsiion i here ; what is this suit?
Vot Un collection of duties, taxes.
Tlserft i no v ntrnrt between the
j iltifcwdant anil U.e C llectur-Geiieral'
oi Custom to pay these duties.
5 Tliw legislature provided that no
kuit for duties should be brought
! after a ceitain time, mid if the
I liiUiti; precribes that an action
Mj!I m brought within it certain
time, can a fciiit be brought under
that statute 50 years after?
The failure to pay duties, cannot
be Implied to mean that there is a
contract. This liability being sui
g'jicrie, J do not see how the Court
can hay that the htatutc says what it
does not say.
I don't think that the Attornej--Gcncral
can be very sincere- in his
argument, for in it lie clutches at a
straw in Section 1050 of the Civil
Code. The Court will no doubt take
the huv as it has been framed and
give it the interpretation that was
meant. Tho only saving clause that
the plaintiffs could have put iu the
declaration would have been, that
the suit was commenced within six
months from tho time the violation
of the law was found out. Uut theio
is no such clause.
I confidently expect that your
Honor will find that there wan.no
contract, that if anything it was a
statutory obligation) and that has
expired by limitation.
There Is no one single word in tho
complaint that biiugs this defendant
within the pale of the law.
I really believe that there cannot
bo any other view of this matter,
than that which I havo presented for
Your Honors' consideration. And if
It can bo proved that the Govern
ment did not know of this matter
until within the Inst six months,
then there may bo a chance for an
action, but if tt did know of it ana
failed to act, then my client hns tho
benefit of tho statute of limitation
imposed on the Government by it
self. The Court then adjourned until
10 a. m. on Friday, and reserved its
decision until then.
