Plumage.

Plumage of the English pheasant, Indian peacock, and rhea not prohibited under paragraph 347, tariff act of 1913.-T. D. 33944 of December 2, 1913, modified accordingly.

TREASURY DEPARTMENT, January 13, 1914. SIR: The department refers to your letter of the 12th ultimo in regard to certain questions arising under T. D. 33944 relative to the prohibition of plumage.

It appears from the best information obtainable by the department that the so-called rhea is, in fact, an ostrich, and the feathers of such birds may, therefore, be admitted without requiring proof that the plumage was taken from domestic birds.

As it appears from reliable information presented that the English pheasant, whether found in the British Isles or on the Continent, is a domesticated bird, and that the Indian peacock is in all cases a domesticated bird, not being found in a wild state, you are authorized to admit the plumage of English pheasants and Indian peacocks without requiring proof as to the origin thereof or a bond being given on entry under T. D. 33944.

Respectfully,
(92655-27.)

Alcoholic perfumery.

Appeal directed from the decision of the Board of United States General Appraisers of November 29, 1913, Abstract 34182 (T. D. 33963), involving the classification of merchandise assessed with duty as alcoholic perfumery under paragraph 67, tariff act of 1909.

TREASURY DEPARTMENT, January 14, 1914. SIR: I have to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 29th ultimo, inviting attention to the decision of the Board of United States. General Appraisers of November 29, 1913, Abstract 34182 (T. D.

33963), involving the classification of merchandise described by the collector as "Lanza" perfume, which was assessed with duty at the rate of 60 cents per pound and 50 per cent ad valorem as an alcoholic perfume under paragraph 67 of the tariff act of August 5, 1909, and which was held by the board to be properly dutiable, as claimed by the importers in their protest, at the rate of 30 per cent ad valorem as ethyl chlorid under paragraph 21 of the said act.

In view of the importance of the issue you are hereby requested to file, in the name of the Secretary of the Treasury, an application with the United States Court of Customs Appeals for a review of the said decision, in accordance with the provisions of subsection 29 of section 28 of the tariff act of August 5, 1909.

Heads of game animals as cut from the carcass free of duty under paragraphs 423, 511, or 605, tariff act of 1913.

TREASURY DEPARTMENT, January 15, 1914.

SIR: The department duly received your letter of November 25, 1913, in regard to the proper classification of raw heads of game animals as cut from the carcass without being prepared in any manner.

You express the opinion that although the heads before they are cut off are dutiable with the rest of the carcass at the rate of 14 cents per pound under paragraph 227 of the tariff act, they are dutiable in their condition as imported as nonenumerated unmanufactured articles at the rate of 10 per cent ad valorem under paragraph 385 of the tariff act, for the reason that a head imported in the condition above described can hardly be considered edible, nor is it horn, bone, skin, or meat, but is a combination of the four.

Following the decision of the Board of United States General Appraisers in G. A. 5652 (T. D. 25231), wherein it was held that elk

and moose horns attached to the skull from which the flesh and skin had been removed were entitled to admission free of duty under paragraph 577 of the tariff act of 1897, which provided for the free entry of horns and parts thereof, unmanufactured, the department is of the opinion that animal heads without horns, such as the head of a bear, lynx, or a female of the deer family, would be entitled to admission free of duty as crude bones under paragraph 423, or as skins of all kinds, raw, under paragraph 604 of the tariff act, and that the heads of game animals having horns or antlers would be entitled to admission free of duty under either of the paragraphs mentioned, or, in harmony with the board's decision, under paragraph 511, which provides for the free entry of horns or parts of horns. You will be governed accordingly.

So-called green cloth which has been treated with a solution of copper and wax to be assessed at 25 per cent ad valorem under paragraph 254, act of 1913, after 30 days from the date hereof.

TREASURY DEPARTMENT, January 15, 1914. SIR: The department is in receipt of your letter of the 6th instant, further in regard to the classification of so-called green cloth, which cloth, it appears, is advisorily returned for duty by the appraiser at your port as cotton cloth, filled or coated, under paragraph 254 of the present tariff act at the rate of 25 per cent ad valorem.

The merchandise in question appears to be similar to that the subject of the decision of the Board of United States General Appraisers in Abstract 27200 (T. D. 32031), which was assessed with duty as waterproof cloth under paragraph 347 of the tariff act of 1909, and was held by the board to be properly dutiable under paragraph 315 of the said act.

The appraiser invites attention to the fact that the testimony in behalf of the Government in the decision of the board cited showed that the cloth had been treated with a solution of copper and wax material, which treatment had slightly swelled the cotton fabric and had a tendency to make the fabric water repellent, and the appraiser states that as the question of "cotton cloth filled or coated" was not an issue in the case, and as the Government was receiving more duty under the act of 1909 by accepting the decision of the board than it would have received if the merchandise had been assessed with duty as cotton cloth, filled, under paragraph 321 of the said act, it was decided not to raise the issue until the law was changed.
