Appeals from decrees of district courts dismissing on motions as many bills filed by parties alleging themselves to be owners of barrels of whisky in bonded warehouses and praying mandatory injunctions to compel the collectors of internal revenue in charge to accept payment of the government taxes, issue the stamps, and allow removal. In Nos. 428 and 548, the federal prohibition directors were also joined, the bills praying that they be required to issue the necessary permits for removal and transportation to plaintiffs' homes. In No. 174, the plaintiff alleges that he became the owner in the spring of 1917, and in No. 175 that ownership began on February 28, 1920, by purchase of a warehouse receipt. In Nos. 428 and 548, the bills show that ownership began by purchase of warehouse receipts, October 2, 1919, and August 24, 1917. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
