N- 20,2i;] ON FEES, GRATUIT. IES^^ HAuaionDut^.& G.) 57 r The Dujy chargc ftamP he believes is- rarely put on, until the Paper is about to be fent out. Examinant is of opinion, that the frauds are chiefly committed by the Officers ftamping the Paper, and not bringing it to charge in his books. He has - known of a confiderable quantity of fiained Paper lately feized, appearing to have been regularly ftamped, but upon a reference to the Officer's book, found not to have been brought to charge. This fraud was difcovered by a change having taken place in the damps, about a month before the dete& ion was made; the Paper found was marked with the new ftamp, but upon a reference to the Officer's books, it was • found that no quantity had been brought to charge fince the change. Examin'ant is of opinion, that to prevent thefe frauds, it would be advifable to have an office for the fole purpofe oi' Hamping Paper ufed for ftaining, in which Office an account fhould be kept, which would always form a check on that kept in the Officer's book. It is the plaice of Paper- ftainers to ground their Papers in- the deadfeafon during the winter, and then let them lie over till they are wanted for immediate ufe. Paper is frequently printed, and remains for a confiderable time • in the pofleffion of the Manufacturer', before it is brought to charge. o o John Boylan. J. S.

This Examinant faith, Thar he is a Paper- ftainer, in exterifive bufmefs in the city of Dublin. He is of opinion, that great frauds againft the Revenue are practiced by Paper- ftainers; thefe he conceives might be in a great meafure remedied, by obliging the Paper- ftainers to bring a 1 Paper intended for ftaining, to the Stamp- Office in its raw ftate, as is now the cafe with Newspapers. The quantity of damped Paper confumed in Dublin is very great. He fuppofes that his tales of ftained Paper and Borders amount to about ./. 2,500 per annum, ( about one- fifth Englilh) the average value of which may be about 6s 6d. per dozen yards of Paper. He hangs all the Paper which he ftains. From the rapidity and flovenly manner with which the ftamps are put on by the - Gau » ers, they can- fcarcely- be diftindtly known to be ftamps. ° John Bellett. J. S.

This Examinant faith, That he is a Paper- ftainer, in very extenfive bufinefs in the city of Dublin. He is of opinion, that frauds to a conliderable extent are praftifed againft the Revenue, and he thinks that the beft mode of prevention would be, the requiring all Paper • intended for ftaining, to be brought to the S'amp- Office, and ftamped in its raw Hate, and the Duty paid immediately. He believes that the oath_ required to be •• taken by Paper- ftainers every month upon payment of the Duty, is feidom taken. .- Examinant has fometimes paid the monthly Duty, without having figned any return
