DECISIONS UNDER THE ACT OF 1909.

Cryslic Acid, assessed as acid not specially provided for, under paragraph 1, was claimed to be same thing as liquid carbolic acid. free of duty under paraTaph 482. Protest overruled.—Ab. 34275 (T. D. 34000).

DECISIONS UNDER THE ACT OF 1897.

Anthranilic Acid of commerce is at the present time produced almost entirely, as a commercial article, from the coal-tar hydrocarbon, toluol or toluene.

It differs essentially from the benzoic acid of commerce, being a more advanced and expensive product, and consequently is not exempt from duty, as claimed, under paragraph 464. It is a well-known acid.—T. D. 22563 (G. A. 4788).

Carboleum, so called, imported in steel cylinders or tubes, a liquid substance known commercially and in chemistry as “carbonic acid,” and also as “carbonic acid gas,” and described by the symbol CO2, is dutiable at 25 per cent ad valorem under the provision in paragraph 1, for “all other acids not specially provided for in this act.”—T. D. 19134 (G. A. 4107).

Carboleum, contained in metal capsules or containers and known as sparklets, is dutiable as an acid not specially provided for under paragraph 1.

Coverings for same made of steel are usual and necessary coverings and not separately dutiable.-In re Hempstead (96 Fed. Rep., 94) and G. A. 4649 and G. A. 4662, cited and followed. U. S. v. Matthews (78 Fed. Rep., 345) distinguished.-T. D. 22402 (G. A. 4737).

Stearic Acid, known also as stearin, is dutiable as an acid not specially provided for, under paragraph 1.-T. D. 30335 (G. A. 6977).

Tetra-chlor-phthalic Acid or Anhydrid is dutiable at 25 per cent ad valorem under the provision for “all other acids not specially provided for," etc., in paragraph 1, being a distinct and different article from phthalic acid, and not included in paragraph 464 nor 524. It was held by the United States Circuit Court for the Southern District of New York, along with so-called “phthalic acid, distilled,” or phthalic anhydride, to be exempt from duty under the provisions of paragraph 473, act of October 1, 1890 (In re Roessler & Hasslacher Chemical Co. and The Heller & Merz Co., suits Nos. 2633 and 2635); such provisions differed essentially, however, from the corresponding provisions of the present act.-T. D. 22664 (G. A. 4824).

DECISIONS UNDER THE ACT OF 1894.

Keller's Tannin Powder is dutiable as tannin and not under paragraph 164 for drugs, etc., nor free under paragraph 363 as an acid, nor under paragraph 386 as an article in a crude state used for dyeing or tanning.–T. D. 17354 (G. A, 3574).

Tannic Acid, “ Vinotanin."—Vinotanin is dutiable as tannic acid and not as a chemical compound.-T. D. 16437 (G. A. 3226).

DECISIONS UNDER THE ACT OF 1890.

Sulphotuluic Acid, a remote derivative of coal tar, by combination with sulphuric acid, its dominant element being derived from coal tar, the chief use of the article being in the construction of coal-tar dyes by combining with a base, is free as an acid used for manufacturing purposes.—Matheson v. U. S., 71 Fed. Rep., 394; 65 Fed. Rep., 422, and T. D. 13879 (G. A. 2032) reversed.

The article known as acetic acid anhydrid, which is not chemically an acetic acid and is not scientifically designated as such, but is one of the substances covered by that general term, is dutiable under the provision in paragraph 1 for “ acetic acid," being one of the substances covered by that term.

While an article may be bought and sold by a specific name, indicating a particular article, yet a group of such articles may be known in trade and commerce by a term which includes them all in a special group.-Lueders v. U. S. (C. C.), T. D. 26460; T. D. 23426 (G. A. 5051) reversed.

Order (T. D. 36401).

Chrysarobin dutiable as a medicinal compound under paragraph 5.-Dept. Order (T. D. 35044).

DECISIONS UNDER THE ACT OF 1909.

Bezoar held dutiable as a medicinal preparation under paragraph 05.-Ab. 24045 (T. D. 30983).

Bitocol classified as glue under paragraph 23, held dutiable as a chemical compound (par. 3).—Ab. 33961 (T. D. 33833).

Cherry Laurel Water contains hydrocyanic acid, and for the past eight years has been returned as a medicinal preparation.

Based upon the record we do not feel justified in disturbing the collector's action.—Ab. 30643 (T. D. 32997).

Cinnamic Acid held properly classified as a medicinal preparation under paragraph 65.—Ab. 31303 (T. D. 33194).

Foot Shampoo.--The merchandise described on the invoice as "Woltat" consists of a powder put up in a paper envelope and known as foot shampoo for foot baths.

Gastric Juice.-The gastric juice of a pig was held properly classified as a medicinal preparation under paragraph 65.-Ab. 30334 (T, D. 32905).
