Sir: Referring to your note of the 19th ultimo, relative to bounties paid on the exportation of sugars from Denmark, I have the honor to inform you that the Department has received a letter from the Secretary of the Treasury stating that those sugars only which are refined from raw sugars under No. 19 in color by the Dutch standard, when imported from Denmark will be liable to the additional duty of one-tenth of 1 cent per pound in the absence of a certificate of nonpayment of bounty, under the provisions of paragraph 182½ of the tariff act of August 28, 1894.

The Secretary of the Treasury adds that the instructions to collectors of August 31, 1894 (S. 15209), have been modified to this extent, and that due notice of the modification has been given to those concerned.

Accept, etc.,

Edwin F. Uhl,
