350 REDUCTION, &c., OF CUSTOMS DUTIES. P. іх., Сн. и.

XI. The stamps, seals, official books, official formularies, shields
and flags required by the ambassadors, legations and consulates of
foreign countries, as also the uniforms of their officials, are free of
customs duties.

The reduction or complete remission of customs duties to German
subjects entering Russia was especially provided for in the
Complementary Convention of the I5th/28th July 1904, to the Treaty
concluded between the two countries on the 10th February 1894,
according to which articles of household use which have already
been used, and which form the furniture of natives of either of the
high contracting Powers emigrating from the territory of the one to
that of the other, should be exempt from all import duties.1

German State Consulates and diplomatic or Consular Officials
entering Russia by order of the German Government, enjoy complete
and unrestricted freedom as to the Russian censorship, either of
newspapers, journals, magazines, or of the production of the arts and
sciences or literature.

Finland. In Finland, special customs regulations are observed. Persons
who are desirous of obtaining a reduction or remission of customs
duties, must draw up a list of the effects they propose to send to
Finland, and declare before a commissioner of oaths that these things
are to be imported for personal use, and are not intended for
commercial purposes, and that their residence in Finland is permanent.
The signature on the document drawn up to this effect must be
legalised by a Russian State Consul, and then the document, together
with the petition, must be submitted by petitioner to the collector
of customs at the Finnish port to which the effects will be shipped.
