ILLINl >l s CASK.
One is tlie cast; of Goctz, a New York

cision or the United States District
Court for the Southern District of Now
York affirming the decision of the
Hoard of General Appraisers, making
tobacco dutiable under the Porto Rico
The other comes to the Supreme
Court under the title "Fourteen dia?
mond rings VS. the United States." It
comes up on appeal from the Federal
Court of Illinois. One <'. VV. Poke, a
soldier of a South Dakota regiment,
which served In the Philippines, is the
claimant. When he returned home from
the Philippines he brought with him
the diamonds. They were seized by
the Federal authorities In Chicago and
confiscated as smuggled goods.
Through Peke's agency suit was
brought to recover them on the ground
that as the Philippines were part or
the United States within the meaning
of the Constitution and that no import
duty could be levied, that the diamonds
were not dutiable and. therefore, were
unlawfully seized. The lower court, In
both Instances, sustained the action of
the Federal authorities.
