TOY MAKERS AND IMPORTERS

CHICAGO, March 27-Anothcr
"Joker" had been discovered in the
Payne Tariff Hill. Experts in the
foreign buying department of a local
store say that toy animals, retailing
at present for a few cents, are to be
come as expensive to import into this
country as are the living animals
which they represent in miniature, if
the bill becomes law. A toy horse,
for instance worth one dollar, will,
under the eccentricities of the propos
ed measure, be taxed $.10, just the
same rate as will be collected for a
thoroughbred racer. .
The experts also find that many
kinds of clothes and ornaments for
dolls will be taxed at the same rates
as clothes and ornaments for the
The cause of the peculiar situation
found to exist under the pending law
with reference to toys is contained in
paragraph 427 which reads as follows:
"Dolls, dolls heads and toys, 35
per cent and valorem; provides that
toys made in imitation or miniature
of, or bearing the same name as artic
les that are provided for in the duti
able list of this section by individual
or class designation shall pay the
same rate of duty as such articles, but
in no case shall any toys pay less
than the duty imposed upon miscel
laneous manufacturers of the mater
ial of which such toys are wholly or
liit chief value compojed"
The "joker" is mainly tucked away
in that part of the paragraph relating
to toys and in "imitation." or "mina
lure", of articles mentioned elsewhere
in the bill. The experts declare that
this means simply what it says, and
that toys which are miniatures of
things elsewhere specified mint pay
the tax of those articles.
