According to an agreement between the Ministries of Foreign
Affairs, and Commerce and Industry of the 17th May 1910, Russian
State Consuls must report on all matters regarding Trade and Commerce
direct to the Section of Commerce of the Ministry of Commerce and
Industry, and they will receive from that Institution instructions about
the matter. According to a circular of the 14th August 1910, from
the Section of Commerce, Russian State Consuls must mark all reports
of a confidential nature to prevent their being published to the
detriment of Russian interests. All information given must be in the
public interest of Russia, and it must not be of a nature which
would be profitable to any one Russian subject in opposition to

All reports of Russian Consular Officers which deserve publicity,
are edited in special Periodicals by the Section of Commerce. They
are systematically filed at the Special Commercial Intelligence Branch,

the Consular Officer to the Section.

send in special reports on various matters likely to interest the Russian

They must also send copies of all treaties and decrees already in force,
or in course of publication, relating to commerce and shipping.1
Consuls must inform the Hydrographical Department of the Ministry
of Marine of the erection, abolition or removal of lighthouses, signals,
buoys and beacons, and of all important changes which take place in
the banks or channels at the ports and in the roadsteads of their
Consular districts.2 Consular Officers who are in a position to supply
the information, are invited by the Ministry of Finance to communicate
information periodically as to the prices of commodities and the current
rate of exchange at the places of their residence. They are also
invited to add their comments on the causes of the variation and
fluctuation in such prices and rate of exchange.3 A Consul should
not treat of several subjects in the same report, but should endeavour,
as far as possible, to make each matter with which he may have to
