The United States internal revenue tax for the two years ended Jane 80,1864, was $1.80 per thousand on cigars valued at not over $5 per M, Increasing to $3.50 on cigars valued at $20, an average of $2.37 per M on cigars of all descriptions. After Jane 30, 1864, the tax was increased, for war purposes, to $3 per M, on cheroots and cigars valued at not over $6 per M ; valued at over $6 and not over $16 per M, $8; valued at $16 to $30, $15 per M ; valued at $30 to $45, $25 per M. Cigarettes valued at not over $6 per 100 packages of 25 each, $1 per 100 packages; valued above that sum, $3; cigarettes made wholly of tobacco, $3 per M. By the act of March 3,1865, cigars, cheroots and cigarettes made wholly of tobacco, or any substitute therefor, were taxed $10 per M, and cigarettes, valued at not over $5 per 100 packages of 25 each, were taxed 5 cents per package, and if valued above that, 5 per cent. These war taxes were reduced by the act of July 13,1866, and March 2,1867, and again July 20, 1868. Under the latter act, cigars and cheroots of all descriptions were taxed $5 per M: cigarettes weighing not over 3 pounds per M, were taxed $1.50, and heavier than that, $5. These rates prevailed until March 3, 1875, when cigars and cheroots were taxed $6 per M and cigarettes $1.75. These rates were again reduced March 3,1883, to $3 per M for cigars and cheroots of all descriptions and 50 cents for cigarettes weighing not over 3 pounds per M. These latter rates are still in effect.

The tariff on tobacco imported into the United States on leaf, or manufactured, was 6 cents per pound and on snuff 10 cents per pound from 1789 to 1794, when it was advanced to 10 and 12 cents respectively, and remained there until 1846, except that it was 20 and 24 cents from 1812 to 1816. In 1846, a tariff of 30 per cent ad valorem was Imposed on leaf tobacco, which was made 24 per cent in '57 and 25 per cent in '61, but in '62 was raised to 25 cents per pound, and in 1866 to 35 cents per pound, continuing at that rate until 1874, when it was made 30 per cent ad valorem. From 1866 to 1883, the duty on snuff and manufactured tobacco was 50 cents per pound. The import duty on cigars and cheroots was $2.50 per thousand until 1842, when the rate was fixed at 40 cents per pound, which was changed to 40 per cent ad valorem in 1846 and 30 per cent in '57, but In 1866-7 was $3 per pound and 50 per cent ad valorem. This was changed to $2-50 per pound, and 25 per cent ad valorem, in 1868, and continued at that figure until 1883.

The United States tariff of 1883 imposed a duty on cigar wrappers of 75 cents per pound, If unstemmed, and $1, if stemmed. Other tobacco in leaf 35 cents per pound, stems 15 cents per pound, snuff or manufactured tobacco 50 cents, cigars, cheroots and cigarettes $2.50 per

Sound and 25 per cent ad valorem. These rates were greatly chanted y the McKinley act of 1890, which imposed a duty of $2 per pound on cigar wrappers if not stemmed, and $2.75 if stemmed. Other leaf tobacco 35 cents unstemmed and 50 cents stemmed; snuff, etc., 50 cents per pound; other manufactured tobacco 40 cents per pound; cigars, cigarettes and cheroots $4.5f>per pound, and 25 per cent ad valorem. Under the Wilson tariff of August 28,1894, the rate on wrapper leaf was reduced to $1.50 per pound, or $2.25 if stemmed, on filler leaf 35 cents per pound and 50 cents if stemmed, other leaf 40 cents, cigars, cigarettes and cheroots $4 per pound and 25 per cent ad valorem, snuff 50 cents, all other manufactured tobacco 40 cents per pound. The high duty on wrapper leaf, in the act of 1883, was evaded by the loose construction of the law; the act of '92 was ironclad In this respect, and the act of 1894 was very specific, and stood the test of the highest courts. The Dingley tariff of 1897 increases the duty on wrappers, and possibly on fillers, but makes no other changes in rates.

Besides these duties, Imported tobacco* has to pay the same Internal revenue taxes that are imposed upon domestic, tobaccos of like grade.

The student Is referred to the wonderfully complete Mbliothect* Nicotkma, compiled by William F. R. Bragge, published at Binning ham, England, in 1880.

United States reports from the Internal revenue and agricultural departments contain much on this subject. The Department of State's consular reports, especially since 1880, give many reports on tobacco in other lands. Several of the State agricultural experiment stations have printed bulletins on the subject.
