United States Customs Officer at Fredericton^ N. B,

Art. 538. If said United States customs officer at Fred-
ericton, New Brunswick, shall find that the goods, wares,
and merchandise, in transit as aforesaid, do not agree
with the description set forth in the manifest accompany-
ing them, or if he finds that the seals on the same have

any certificate from the customs officers in the district
whence it leaves the United States, and need not be sealed.
A manifest in the usual form, however, must be presented
to the customs officers at the port of arrival in the United
States.

ANIMALS FOR BREEDING PURPOSES.

Act July 24» Art. 541. In making free entry of animals the importer
T.D.ao833,2i296. must producc a duly certified invoice and a certificate of
identification, sworn to by him.

It having been ascertained that animals which are cross-
bred and others with unknown pedigrees have been re-
corded in certain registers, with the sole object of making
them eligible for free entry into the United States, and as
paragraph 473 of the act of July 24, 1897, provides that
no animal shall be admitted free unless pure bred of a
recognized breed, the object of the law being, in the opin-
ion of this Department and the Department of Agricul-
ture, to exclude from free entry animals not absolutely
pure bred, it is hereby directed that no animal imported
for breeding purposes shall be admitted free of duty un-
less the importer furnishes a certificate of the record and
pedigree in the form hereafter given in the appended list
of registers, showing that the animal is pure bred, and
has been admitted to full registry in a book of record estab-
lished for that breed, and that its sire and dam and grand-
sires and granddams were all recorded in a book of record
established for the same breed. An affidavit by the
owner, agent, or importer that such animal is the identical
animal described in said certificate of record and pedi-
gree must be presented.
T.D. 17703. Art. 542. In the case of sheep, females are frequently

recorded by fiocks, and not individually; therefore, when-
ever the names of individual ancestors can not be given
in the pedigree, the certificate should be filled out in such
manner as to show the volume and page of the flock book
in which the ancestors for two generations are recorded.

Unless the certificate of record and pedigree herein
provided for is produced, the animal shall be considered
dutiable as not being pure bred of a recognized breed, and
duly registered in the book of record established for that
breed.

Art. 543. In case such certificate is not at hand at the
time of the arrival of the animals, duties should be esti-
mated thereon and deposited, and the animals delivered
to the importer, who may, within ten days, file a written

Stipulation with the collector to produce the i-equisite
certificate within six months from date of entry; where-
upon final liquidation of the entry will l)e 8usi)ended
until the prcxluction of the certificate or the expiration of
the six months. Upon the prmluction of the requisite
certificate in due form within six months from entr>% the
amount deposited shall l>e refunded as an excess of
deposit. Certificates of iHjdigree should l>e returned to the
importer when requested, copies l>einj? retained for the
files of the custom-house.

tary' of the Treasury for his decision.
