THE DUTY UPON RIBBONS
Treasury Department Renders a
Decision Regarding It
They Are Dutiable ns Mauufuc-
tnres of Silk ut a 50 Per Ceut
"Ad Valorem Rate.
Assistant Secretary Howell has wiitten
to the col! fee tor of customs at the pore of
New 1'ork as follows:
'Sir: The department is in receipt of
your letter or the 5th Instant, in which you
state Hut you have lield a conference with
the representative experts of your office,
tlie naval office, and the appraiser's of flee
upon tlie proper classification ot iilk rjb
bons foi duty, which has resulted in a
positive disagreement between the naval
officer and youraalf.
"You report that it is agreed that ribbons
(other than -velvet) of silk, or or which
silk is the component of chief ralue, aie
classifiable eithei under paragraph 300
ab' trimmings," at GO percent ad valorem,
or under paragraph 391 ot the present
tarirf law as 'Muanuractures ot silk, or of
which silk, is the component material or
chief value, not specially provided for," at
bO per cent ad valorem, the naval ofrice
hoialug firmly to the view that silk rib
bons siiouid be classified as 'tiimmings,'
basing its conclusion specifically upon the
opinion of Justice PJatchford, in ttie ca-si
ot Robertson versus Edelhoft (Synopsis
9b54), while your office contends that the
term 'ribbons' Is a commercial designa
tion which Includes a large and well de
fined dasa of articles, and that the term
'tTininnngs' Is far more elastic, and may
be regarded as a descriptive term which
embraces a variety ot distinct classes, but
A'luch by common usage, and notwithstand
ing many changesin the tariff, lias received
a well defined commercial significance and
covets a particular class of articles recog
nized in tiade as 'trimmings.'
"In reply I have to inform you that
this department has carefully considered
the arguments present ed. both on behalf
ot your orfice and the naval office, and
has reached ttie conclusion that "silk
ribbons" are properly classifiable for
duty at the rate of 50 per cent ad valorem
u 'manufactures of silk, or of which
bilk is tlie component material of chief
value, not specially provided for,' under
paragraph 391 ot the act of July 24.
Ib97. In reaching this conclusion the
department has taken into consideration
the fact that the term 'ribbons' is a well
known commercial designation and seem
to have ieen so considered by Congress
in making spectal provision midt;r para
graph 320 of the present tariff act for
ribbons made ot cotton or other vegetable
fiber, notwithstanding that trimmings
ot flax, cotton, or other vegetable fiber
are specially provided for in paragraph
339 of the same act
"The department has also taken Into
consideration the fact that, under the
tarirf au ot March 2, 1S61; June 30,
1SG4, and as continued in the Revised
Statutes, both silk ribbons and Mlk trim
mings were specially provided for. Con
gress therefore recognized the distinction
between 'ribbons' and 'trimmings.' The
acts of IVbruary S, 1873; March 3. 1H83;
October 1, 1890, and August 28, 1B91,
contained no specific enumeration for
'silk ribbons' or 'trimmings,' and such
merchandise was, under the acts last
mentioned, uniformly classified under the
provisions for 'manufactures ot silk, or
or which silk Is tne component material
or chief value, not specially provided ror.'
It is therefore reasonable to presume that,
had the present Congress Contemplated plac
ing a duty or 60 per cent ad valorem on
silk ribbons, the article would have been,
specially enumerated In paragraph 390
or the present tariff act. Ton will be
go ewd accordingly. Ite-pectf ully yours,

To the Editor of The Times:
Your statement in a recent editorial
that England hired Hessians in the war
of 177G "to murder us" seems to me to
be hardly a fair one and I am a de
scendant of American rebels of that time.
The Hessians were the troops of Duke
Ernest, younger brother of George HL As
they were idle the latter took them
'to use for their keep" that is, borrowed
them. It ought not to be forgot that
some French who aided us took pay from
Soldiers nearly always right for pay
in fact, the derivation 13 from a word
which means one who fights for pay.
Gen. Crook hired Indians to fight other
Indians, and so did other commanding
officers of our army, and the Indians so
employed were permitted to scalp the dead
of the other side.
I am often surprised, as well as pained,
at the attacks made by The Times upon
the nation which, with all her faults,
and all her misrbrtunes and mistakes, has
done more to establish and preserve lib
erty than any other nation. She is the
burrer between us and the despotisms

The Bathing Bench.
To the Editor ot The Times:
"Fairness" seems unduly excited at the
lack of chivalry displayed in grudging
the use of the bathing beach to women
and children. Now, as children (male) are
excluded on ladles' evenings, and morn
ings us well, and as ladies seem to en
joy the bathing even when men are al
lowed the privilege, also (as note the ladles
present Saturday last), and as there are
special mornings for ladles who are too
modest to be in the same water with
men, though hundreds of the same are
watching their gambols from the shore
instead or enjoying the cool water, I hope
that the over modest maidens will be sat
isfied with their mornings, nnd those
who realty enjoy a swim come iu with
us in the evenings, giving ladles and gen
tlemen every evening. Any hoodlum guilty
of disrespect will scon be punished so
that he will never attempt it again.
