If l
Customs Officers Puzzled to Find
Way to Prevent Threat
ened Evil
Treasury Department Bombarded
With Requests for Rulings Air-
planes and Hydroplanes Classed
as Automobiles for Time
Washington Smuggling by airplane
sounds exciting nnd Is proving so to
the customs division of the treasury
which Is so to speak up In the nlr
about It For tho time being the de
partment has ruled thnt airplanes and
hydroplanes aro automobiles so far
as It Is concerned but It Is well nwaro
that calling a bird n wagon will not
bring It down to earthy where It can
tell what kind of a bird Jt Is
So far there has been no report of
Illicit Importations by air tine but ex
pectation of such traffic is not denied
How to prevent ItIs a perplexing prob
lem growing more and more pressing
as requests for rulings come from dep
uty collectors on our northern and
southern borders In tho latter case
they Imvo had to do with tobacco
brought In from Cuba by way of Key
West and Tampa
Here Is on entirely new problem for
the treasury to deal with In the col
lection of revenue through customs du
ties It Is one to bo solved by treas
ury regulations born of decisions for
which no additional legislation Is need
ed That It may bo solved by a com
prehensive order Is almost despaired
of because tho best thought of the de
partment although the need of deal
ing with tho situation has been long
foreseen has not been able to hit upon
a method to close this door to secret
Importations thrown open by n mod
em method of transportation most dif
ficult If not Impossible to control
May Require Registration
It Is believed that some scheme may
be worked out whereby all airplanes
leaving the country will be registered
nt tho nearest custom -house -on the
border where a certificate will bo Is
sued to be presented at any custom
house In returning as Is done now In
the case of automobiles This would
In most cases be n mere formality but
would permit search In suspicious
cases and would tend to keep down
smuggling Will be registered Is rec
ognized as putting It strongly as It
Is admitted It Would be Impossible to
compel such registration of a machine
miles above the clouds The auto
moblllst finds It best to comply be
causo wlthtmt his certificate to surren
der on return he must prove his car
Is of American make or pay perhaps
5 per cent ad valorem duty There
would be nfiJway to stop tho flying mn
chlne coming or going
Deputy Collector Hayden L Moore
nt San Juan Porto Itlco seems to
think he has them going If not com
ing To him airplanes are not nuto
mobiles but seagoing vessels Serious
Inquiries from business men on the
Island have caused him to make this
In tho absence of specific Instruc
tions from the department I shall re
quire airships clearing from Porto
Rico for foreign ports to bo properly
documented under the rules of the de
partment of commerce In the same
manner as seagoing vessels are regu
lated entries and clearances to bo
made and all dues paid nt custom
houses In districts where landings are
effected or voyages started
This Is very simple but airplanes
are peculiar In their mode of travel

Air Smuggling

It wos almost a dally occurrence for
