Fisk v. Arthur, 103 U.S. 431 (1880)
Fisk v. Arthur
103 U.S. 431
1. In 1873, A. imported certain manufactured shirtings, not made up, composed of linen and cotton, the latter being the material of chief value and largely predominating. Held that they were, within the meaning of the tariff acts, manufactures of cotton, and as such subject to the duty imposed by the first section of the Act of March 3, 1865, c. 80. 13 Stat. 491.
2. The ruling in Solomon v. Arthur, 102 U. S. 208, that goods made of mixed materials were not dutiable under the mixed-material clause of the twenty-second section of the act of March 2, 1861, c. 192, 12 Stat. 192, if they came properly within any other description found in the tariff acts reaffirmed.
