Excerpt from Hearings: Before the Committee on Ways and Means of the House of Representatives, 60th Congress, 1st Season on H. R. 11325, Introduced by Mr. Weeks, of Massachusetts, January 22, 1908

The Chairman: A hearing is requested on the bill H. R. 11325, introduced by Mr. Weeks of Massachusetts, providing -

That the Secretary of the Treasury be, and he is hereby, authorized and directed to make full rebate of all duties imposed by law on anthracite coal imported into any port of the United States from foreign countries from October sixth, nineteen hundred and two, to January fifteenth, nineteen hundred and three, and to repay all money paid as duties upon anthracite coal at any port of the United States to the person, persons, or corporations who paid the same upon anthracite coal imported from the sixth day of October, nineteen hundred and two, to January fifteenth, nineteen hundred and three: Provided, That the person or persons so to be paid shall produce satisfactory proof to the Secretary of the Treasury that they were not reimbursed for said tariffs in the sales to the consumer.

I understand Mr. Hellier is here to speak on that.

Hon. John W.Weeks, a Representative from Massachusetts: Yes; he will speak on that.

Mr. Cockran. What is the object of that bill, Mr. Chairman? The Chairman. To refund certain duties paid upon coal brought into certain ports of the United States. We had it up before the committee in the last Congress. It was claimed that at some of the ports they were required to pay duty on coal and that at other ports it was allowed to come in. It would have to pay duty if it was regarded as bituminous coal, but if it was anthracite coal it came in free of duty. It was claimed that there was discrimination between the different ports.

Mr. Granger. Is it not the fact, Mr. Chairman, that at certain ports the officers did not enforce the laws of the United States, and at other ports they did? Is not that it?

The Chairman. We will hear these gentlemen on that subject.

Statement Of Hon. John W. Weeks, A Representative From Massachusetts.

Mr. Weeks. Mr. Chairman, argument on this bill, I think, has already been heard by the committe, and last year they decided that they wanted more information. I think the gentlemen of the committee are entitled to have that information. Duties were paid on this coal at Boston and at Baltimore, and were not paid at New York and Philadelphia and other ports. I think that the gentlemen can show that the coal they brought in should not have been dutiable under the law.
