during his absence. The Consul informs the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs of every appointment or suspension of a private auxiliary
employee[1] and of every occasion upon which an auxiliary State
employee of his Consulate obtains leave of absence (with his permission
and the consent of the Legation or Embassy) and when he returns

§ 9. Rights of Deputy Consular Officers in France, Germany, Italy, Spain.

Art. 6 of the Consular conventions with France, Germany, Italy
and Spain stipulates, that in event of inability on the part of a
Consul-General, Consul or Vice-Consul, through absence, death or any other
cause, to perform the duties of his office, his Deputies or Secretaries,
after being introduced to the local authorities in their capacities as
such, shall be legally entrusted with the temporary control of the
particular Consulate, enjoying, during the period of their activity
as Deputies, all the privileges, immunities and advantages appertaining
to the Consular Office.

CHAPTER IV. — Appointment and Exequatur.

State Consuls are appointed by His Majesty the Tsar and receive
their patents from the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs ; whereas
Elective Consuls are appointed by the State Consuls in whose districts

an appointment to a post already existing, to submit to the Legation
the reasons which have determined his choice. The Legation, if
approving the Consular selection, submits the new appointment for
confirmation to the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and acquaints
the Consul in due course of the result. If it is a question of creating
a new post, the State Consul must submit to the Legation the reasons
which necessitate the measure.[4]

§ 10. Choice of a suitable candidate for Consular appointment.

Sometimes, those desirous of being appointed to the post of Elective
Vice-Consul want to know the exact circumstances which determine
the choice of a suitable candidate for such an appointment. It is
not easy to give a definite answer to such a query. The candidate
must inspire confidence in his own trustworthiness. This can be
attained by references from the Mayor of the place, or other persons
holding public office, stating that the candidate is considered to be
suitable for the prospective Consular appointment. But, in order to
ensure efficiency in Consular business, it is desirable for the candidate
