The provisions of this act, which were originally limited to grape-brandy, have been extended to brandy distilled from apples and peaches, by the act of October 18, 1888 (25 Stat. 560), which is as follows:

“That the provisions of an act entitled · An act relating to the production of fruit-brandy, and to punish frauds connected with the same,' approved March third, eighteen hundred and seventy-seven, be extended and made applicable to brandy distilled from apples or peaches, or from any other fruit the brandy distilled from which is not now required or hereafter shall not be required to be deposited in a distillery warehouse: Provided, That each of the warehouses established under said act, or which may hereafter be established, shall be in charge either of a storekeeper or of a storekeeper and gauger, at the discretion of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue."

The brandy from all fruits other than apples, peaches, and grapes is still required to be deposited in distillery warehouses, and must be distilled under the same restrictions as are imposed upon grain and molasses distillers.

Regulations of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue, concerning special bonded warehouses for fruit-brandy, are published in Int. Rev. Reg., Series 7, No. 5, Revised, and Supp. No. 1.

Sec. 2. That every distiller of brandy from apples, peaches, and grapes, upon rendering his Act Oct. monthly return of materials used and spirits Distiller to pay produced by him, shall immediately pay the best monthly

Sec. 3. That all brandy intended for deposit in a Stamp to be special bonded warehouse, before being re

Drawback.

The words, “twenty nine gallons” in the last line of this section should, undoubtedly, read“ twenty wine gallons.” The error was probably made in engrossing, but it remains as above in the statutes. See note to Sec. 1. See Secs. 3329 and 3330.
