The Commissioner of Intern il has
decided that owner or agents of vessels or
cnal Itonts do not appear, under section l':t,
antbori.ed to charge in their freight bills the
24 per cent, tax In Addition to the amount agreed
upon for freight. The word "fare," in the nr.,
cannot properly be construed to unhide freight.
The sumo equity which inll icneed tbo cn ict
ment in the proviso iu to f re would fce.n to
apply equally to freigh', nn J it may have been
. by accident that the provision in favjr of the
transporter was nit made to inclnde both obj :cts.
But we cannot undertake to -uppiy by coujecturo
, - omission in an act of CougrcdS. Fare is an cu
Irtly different subject from freight, and c innot
be interpreted by any reasonable latitude of con
- struction to Include it. The lutli fiction has no
application, and does not cover the dllU. nlty.
