Decided December 5, 1921

257 U.S. 226


1. Taxes on the value of exports from the Philippine Islands collected under a Philippine Act, effective July 1, 1916, while duties on such exports were forbidden by the Act of Congress of August 29, 1916, c. 416, 39 Stat. 545, were legalized, ratified, and confirmed by the congressional Act of June 5, 1920, c. 253, 41 Stat. 1015, 1025. P. 257 U. S. 231.

2. This was within the power of Congress (United States v. Heinszen Co., 206 U.
