S. St. at Large, ISO (U. S. Comp. St. 1901, p. 2018). “The word is a technical word, having a known and accepted meaning. It implies something illegal, aud is inconsistent with an innocent intent. The idea conveyed by it is that of a secret introduction of goods, with intent to avoid payment of duties.” U. S. v. Claflin, 13 Blatchf. 1S4, Fed. Cas. No. 14,798.
