Jones v. Blackwell, 100 U.S. 599 (1879)
Jones v. Blackwell
100 U.S. 599
Manufactured tobacco shipped in bond from the manufactory and stored in an export bonded warehouse on the 14th of June, 1872, was subject to the tax of thirty-two cents per pound, prescribed by the Internal Revenue Act of July 20, 1868. 15 Stat. 152.
This action was brought by Blackwell against Stockdale, collector of internal revenue for the first collection district of Louisiana, and, on his death revived against Jones, his executrix.
Judgment having been rendered against her, she sued out this writ of error.
The facts are sufficiently stated in the opinion of the Court.
