Syllabus

The Supreme Court of Tennessee decided that the law of that state imposing an annual tax upon "all peddlers of sewing machines and selling by sample," levies such "tax upon all peddlers of sewing machines, without regard to the place of growth or produce of material or of manufacture." Held that the law, so construed, is not in violation of the Constitution of the United States.
