CHINESE TRANSIT TAX.

Washington, Oct. 1 1. It is said at th
state department that American and other
commerce is more seriously niuanced by
the decision of the Chinese government
to impose a transit tax on - goods than by
anything that has occurred since the war
began. This tax is Well known to diplo
matists tinder the name of lckin. It is a
specie of internal revenue tax and is levied
on all goods imports or exports passing
through China. It H a terrible restraint
upon commerce, for it is levied repeatedly
at every town through which the goods
pass and accumulates with rapidity to a
total that is actually prohibitive upon a
large class of goods which our merchants
have just succeeded in int roducing, after
painful efforts into interior China.
For fifty years all of the commercial
powers have been united in the effort to
secure its alxilition. They finally obtained
from the Chinese government an arrange
ment by which imported goods should bo
taxed only once, upon entry, and the
"lekin was atMihsh.il, to the great benefit
of trade. If it is again to be imposed, fear
Is expressed that it will be almost a lier-

derived will Ik- needed by the Chinese gov
