The duty will be charged on as many tons as are given in the vessel's register when the customs officers regard it as fully loaded, that is, when the hold of the vessel is fully loaded with timber, or it may be judged that it would have been fully loaded if the deck cargo also had been loaded in the hold. In the opposite case the duty shall be assessed on the real quality loaded in the vessel, whether the cargo be stored on the deck or the hold, at the same time never paying for more tons than are entered on the ship's register. No duty shall be charged when the lumber occupies less than one ton's space.

If lumber dutiable at different rates of export duty be exported in the same vessel, such duty shall be charged:

A. For the whole lot at the lower rate where the lumber dutiable at the higher rate consists only of boards to cover the deck cargo or spars necessary for the ship's use.

B. For the cargo below deck at the lower rate and for the deck cargo at the higher, when the former consists exclusively of pieces not exceed

ing 19 decimeters in length, and the latter of wooden goods of greater length for the most part than mentioned in letter A, according to which estimate the cargo under deck shall be estimated at seven-eighths and the cargo on deck at one-eighth of the measured tonnage of the vessel. C. In other cases for the whole lot at the higher rate.

Articles not belonging to any classes subject to export duty shall be exempt of duty.

We hereby most graciously order that the foregoing decree of the Storthing shall be put in full force.

Given at the palace of Stockholm on the 18th of June, 1881.
