Tho other was tfent to the appraisers stores. This woman like a j;reat many more who will arrive here within a short time believed that the nw tariff act in no way interfered with the bringing of these articles of adornment. "Naturally there must be a line drawn, and we expect that the treas ury department will within a short time inform us just how to proceed in such cases. It will be our aim to en force the law with as little inconven ience to the public us possible."
