"I liae the honor to report, In ac
cordance with tbo provisions of Ar
ticle 149;, Customs Regulations of
1899, an apparent violation of the Nav
igation Laws. The facts of the enso
a io an follows;
"Tho American ship Helen Drewer,
nf 1582 tons burden, D. Mnhany. mas
ter, officially cleared fiom the I'ort
of New York on September 10th. 1901,
(home poit of vessel Boston, Mass.,)
nml entered at this port on January 28,
1902. When tho boarding officer
hoarded the vessel above referred to,
the master failed to exhibit the crew
list as required by Articles 100. 131.

1S99. and Sections 4501, 4511. 4573,

March 3, 1897. Sec also Treasury De
cisions. 14670, 17974 and 17867.
"In this connection I deem it proper
to state that tho above named vessel
cleared fioui tho Port of New York,
as stated above, with a license and
enrollment Instead of under a regis
ter, as Is required by vessels engaged
in the foreign trade. It Is tho opinion
of this office that vessels proceeding
on a voyage from tho Atlantic to Pa
cllic ports In the United States 'ore
hound on a foreign voyage' within the
purview and for the purposes of Sec
tion 4570, Revised Statutes, and are
subject to the same rules and regula
tions as vessels bound on a foreign
voyage. See Artlrles 132, Customs

The Case Stated.
In reply, I have the honor to point
nut that jour report shows that thli
ship, the Helen Drewer, had, as her
home port, the port of Boston In tho
State of Massachusetts, United States
of America. The ship was officially
cleared from the port of Now York In
the State of New York In tho United
States of America. The ship entered
tho port of Honolulu In the Territory

with the case of u United States ves
