46 App.:124.

R.S. § 2792; May 28, 1908, ch. 212, § 1, 35 Stat. 424.

The words “at least 3 trips per week” are substituted for “triweekly or oftener” for clarity. The words “and light money” are added for clarity and consistency. See 19 C.F.R. § 4.21 (2003). The words “while such service triweekly or oftener is maintained” are omitted as unnecessary.
