charged by consular officers for official services. All charges for such services must be in str 
accordance with this tariff, and be collected in the coin of the United States or at its representat 
value in exchange. No fee or compensation will be collected for any service not covered by t 
tariff. 

The fees in this tariff are not prescribed for American vessels and seamen, because they i

tariff a basis of collection from the Treasury for services to such vessels. Foreign-built vess( 
unregistered, owned by American citizens, and vessels documented under the laws of the Philipp 
Islands are not exempt from the payment of the fees prescribed herein. 

Services, except those for which fees are fixed in items 8, 9 and 10, under this tariff shall 
rendered free of charge when performed: fa) in connection with the settlement of the estate 
any employee of the United States dying abroad while on official duty; (b) for the use of any p 
son in the collection of claims from the United States or from any State for compensation, pi 
sions, backpay, bounty, bonus, property loss in the service of the United States; (c) for obtain: 
the return of property held by the Alien Property Custodian; and (d) for the official use of i 
United States Veterans* Bureau. 

Consular officers must require all fees to be paid in advance and before the stamps are ci 
celed, except in case of attendance out of office or of commissions, when the amount can not 
determined until the service is performed. Advance deposits to cover fees in such latter cases ra 
be accepted but in no other. 

This tariBF is effective July 1, 1929, and should be posted in a conspicuous place in consu 
offices as required by section 1731, Revised Statutes.
