TREASURY DEPARTMENT, January 3, 1893.

SIR: The Department is in receipt of a report from the United States district attorney at your port, dated the 22d ultimo, in which he

states that the appeal to the United States circuit court of appeals for the second circuit in the so-called appraiser's case, In re A. & H. Veith, No. 587, was, on the 20th ultimo, decided by that court in favor of the importers.

The question at issue in this case was whether certain "beads sewed on cards" were dutiable as a manufacture of glass, under paragraph 108, act of October 1, 1890, as assessed by you, or whether they were properly dutiable as "glass beads, loose or unstrung," under paragraph 445 of the same act, as decided by the Board of General Appraisers, upon which decision an application for review was filed by you under the provisions of section 15 of the act of June 10, 1890.

In view of the fact that the decision of the Board of General Appraisers in this case was affirmed by the United States circuit court for the southern district of New York, and has now been reaffirmed by the United States circuit court of appeals, you are hereby authorized to take the usual steps for refunding the excessive duties exacted, and to apply these instructions to any similar cases pending at your port. Respectfully, yours,

TREASURY DEPARTMENT, January 3, 1893.

SIR: On the exportation of so-called "processed wool" manufactured by Erben, Search & Co., of Philadelphia, Pa., from raw wools of class 1, imported by them, a drawback will be allowed equal in amount to the duty paid on the imported wool used, less the legal deduction of 1 per cent.

The manufacturers shall be required to state in addition to the usual averments in their drawback entry that the processed wool covered thereby has been manufactured by them in the manner set forth in their sworn application dated November 21, 1892, and to furnish the proofs of identity prescribed by article 758 of the Customs Regulations. Respectfully, yours,

(2291 g.)

COLLECTOR OF CUSTOMS, Philadelphia, Pa.

Acting Secretary.

Immigrants coming other than as steerage passengers.

TREASURY DEPARTMENT, January 5, 1893.

SIR: Under date of January 4, you report Ellen Moody and five children, alien immigrants, arrived per steamship Ohio, December 4, 1892, and now inmates of the Fayette County almshouse, Pennsylvania. One of the children has died since reaching this country. You recommend that Mrs. Moody and her remaining four children be returned to England, the country whence they came.

It appears that agents of the steamship company claim that Mrs. Moody and children are not immigrants as defined in Department Circular No. 191, and that Mrs. Moody claims that she is a visitor within the meaning of said circular, and objects to being returned to England by the Department.

The fact that Mrs. Moody came registered other than steerage passage does not destroy her character as an immigrant. The evidence shows she arrived in this country destitute, and was detained by you until a purse was raised to convey her to her proposed destination, and since her arrival at her destination she has been a charge on others until they refuse longer to support her, and she has been consigned with her children to the Fayette County almshouse.

Mrs. Moody and her children are immigrants within the statute. You are hereby authorized to deport her and her four children to the country whence they came, as provided in section 11 of the act approved March 3, 1891.

TREASURY DEPARTMENT, January 6, 1893.
