Monsieur Jusser and, the French ambassador in Wash ington, today , was instructed by the French government to transmit to the state department a protest of the French chamber of commerce against the provision of the hew American tariff law calling for inspection by American . agents of the books of French exporters for the purpose of determining the ad valorem duties to be collected by the United States. French exporters are said to be greatly disturbed over this feature of the tariff measure and declare that under no conditions will inspection be tolerated.
