On proceedings in the circuit court to review the action of the board of general appraisers in the classification of certain merchandise, under act June 10.1890, "to simplify the laws in relation to the .collection of the revenues, " the return of the board stated that all the facts involved in the case were contained in its annexed opinion and decision, but the opinion merely affirmed the collector's assessment of duty. stating that for certain reasons it "was not deemed advisable to enter into the merits" of the question involved in the importer's protest. Held, that the return was not sufficient under section 15 of the act, providing that it shall contain" a certified statement of the facts Involved in the' case, " and that it should be sent back to the board to be conformed to the requirements of that section.

Against this liquidatiOll the importers protested, setting forth in their protests the facts which, as they claimed, showed both that errors hltdbeen u;lI'l.d;e in the classification'of the tobacco, and that the examination of the importations had not been such as the statutes required. All thepaperil were transmitted to the board ·of general appraisers, which affirmed the action of the collector. The importers having applied to tbi$ court for: a review of the action of the board, orders were heretofore J:l!.Qde oalling fo:r returns of the" record and the evidence taken by them, tQgetherwitll a certified statement of the facts involved in the case, and theirdecisions!.thereon."·. Seotion 15, Act 1890; The returns filed in rflSponse to this order each state that "all the facts involved in said case, so far as ascertained by the .board,are fully stated in [a certain] opinion and decision [annexed thereto.]" In such opinion it is stated that, inasmuch as some of the questions raised by the protest are "understood to be now pending in the United States courts, [they] do not deem it advisable to enter into the merits of the same at this. time, but affirm [the collector's] assessment of duty." Both the counsel for the petitioners and the district attorney move the court to send back these returns as not in conformity to the requirements of the statute, insisting that neither the importer nor the government can safely proceed further in the cases until a proper return is filed. Certainly these returns do not contain any certified statement of "the facts involved in the case," which, under the
