Tennessee v. Pullman Southern Car Company, 117 U.S. 51 (1886)

Argued January 25-26, 1886

Decided March 1, 1886

117 U.S. 51

APPEAL FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED

STATES FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE

Syllabus

The case of Pickard v. Pullman Southern Car Co., ante, p. 34, confirmed and applied to a privilege tax of $75 a year, on each sleeping car imposed by the Act of Tennessee of April 7, 1881, Laws of 1881, c. 149, p. 202.

This case was argued with Pickard v. Pullman Southern Car Co., ante, 117 U. S. 34, by the same counsel.

MR. JUSTICE BLATCHFORD delivered the opinion of the Court.

Page 117 U. S. 52

Davidson County, Tennessee, on December 15, 1883, by the State of Tennessee against the Pullman Southern Car Company, a Kentucky corporation. The questions involved are the same as those disposed of in Pickard v. Pullman Southern Car Co., ante 117 U. S. 34. The bill sets forth the Act of Tennessee of March 16, 1877, and alleges that from 1877, the company had run sixty sleeping cars instead of thirty-eight each year, and ought to have paid as a privilege tax for each car for each of the years 1877, 1878, 1879, and 1880, $50, making $12,000, whereas it had paid only $7,276.41, and that by an Act passed April 7, 1881, Laws 1881, c. 149, p. 202, the privilege tax was increased to $75 a year for each car, making due for the years 1881 and 1882, $9,000. The bill prays for a discovery, and an account, and for judgment.

The defendant removed the suit into the Circuit Court of the United States for the Middle district of Tennessee, and then answered the bill. The answer raises the same questions which were adjudged in the other suit, and on the same facts. The case was heard on bill and answer. The decree gave a recovery for $300 and interest for the taxes for 1881 and 1882 on the two cars which ran wholly within Tennessee, but dismissed the bill in all other respects. The plaintiff appealed to this Court from all of the decree except that part which awarded a recovery. For the reasons assigned in the opinion in the other suit, the decree in this case is

Affirmed.
