DUTIES UPON IMPORTS
(R. S. $$ 2491–2516. Superseded and repealed.) This Title, as enacted in the Revised Statutes, included sections 2491-2518thereof, of which sections 2503, 2504, contained the schedules of articles sube ject to duty and the rates of duty thereon, then in force, with a proviso annexed to section 2503, for special rates of duty on certain specified classes of goods; section 2504 contained the free list, of articles exempt from duty; and the other sections contained various particular provisions relating to imports and duties thereon. Said rates of duty on certain articles were altered and additional articles were included in the free list, by Act Feb. 8, 1875, c. 36, 88 1-10, 18 Stat. 307; and further alterations were made, and said proviso to R. S. $ 2503, was repealed, by Act March 3, 1875, c. 127, 98 3-6, 18 Stat. 340. R. S. § 2501, was also repealed by Act May 4, 1882, c. 120, 22 Stat. 58, and Act Dec. 23, 1882, c. 6, 22 Stat. 398; and R. S. § 2506, was repealed, on the termination of articles 18-25, 30, of the treaty with Great Britain of May 8, 1871, pursuant to the Joint Resolution of March 3, 1883, No. 22, 22 Stat. 641.
A substitute for this entire Title was enacted by section 6 of Act March 3, 1883, c. 121, 22 Stat. 488, 489, entitled “An act to reduce internal-revenue taxation, and for other purposes." Said substitute was in the form of new sections of the Revised Statutes, numbered 2491-2513, arranged in different order, but covering the subjects of most of the original sections then in force. New tariff schedules and free list, substitutes for the original R. S. $S 2503, 2504, were contained in the new sections 2502, 2503. Further sections of said act, Act March 3, 1883, c. 121, 88 7–13, 22 Stat. 523, made other amendments and provisions relating to rates of duties and collection thereof.
All such previous provisions relating to the subject of this Title were superseded by the provisions prescribing the articles subject to duty, and the rates of duty thereon, of the McKinley Tariff Act of Oct. 1, 1890, c. 1244, 88 1-25, 26 Stat. 567. These, in like manner, were superseded by the Wilson Tariff Act of Aug. 27, 1894, c. 349, 28 Stat. 509, which was superseded by the Dingley Tariff Act of July 24, 1897, c. 11, which, again, was superseded by the Payne-Aldrich Tariff Act of Aug. 5, 1909, c. 6, 36 Stat. 11, and that was superseded by the Underwood Tariff Act of Oct. 3, 1913, c. 16, 88 1, 4, 38 Stat. 114.
This Title, as enacted in the Revised Statutes, was not divided into chapters. For convenience of arrangement it is here divided into two chapters: Chapter A, “Tariff Schedules," containing the provisions of sections 1 and 4 of said Underwood Tariff Act of 1913, as amended, with the provisions of other acts remaining in force relating thereto; and Chapter B, “The Tariff Commission,” containing the provisions of Act Sept. 8, 1916, c. 463, creating and relating to the Tariff Commission.
