Likin
Likin Li"kin`, n. [Written also {lekin}.] [ Chin. li kin; li the thousandth part of a tael + kin money.] A Chinese provincial tax levied at many inland stations upon imports or articles in transit. [1913 Webster]

``Likin,'' which used to be regarded as illegal, as one of the many, ``squeezes'' imposed by the mandarins, is, in Jamieson's opinion, just as legal as any other form of taxation. --A. R. Colquhoun. [Webster 1913 Suppl.]
