CHAPTER X.—Presents and Dedications of
Foreigners to their Majesties.

Foreigners who desire to present His Majesty or Her Majesty with
books, addresses or artistic products, or to make a dedication to
His Majesty, must apply to a Russian Legation or Embassy, which
will make an inquiry about the personality of the donor and the
circumstances under which the present or dedication is proposed to be made.
If the inquiries are satisfactory and the Legation or Embassy judge
the application worthy of consideration, a report about it is made
to the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, but this does not involve
the acceptance of the present. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs informs
the Legation or Embassy of the decision in the matter, and the donor
receives notice from the latter.

§ 147.






CHAPTER XI.—The Consul and Disputes between
Russian Merchants.

The Consul is entitled to act as mediator between Russian merchants
in disputes arising within his Consular district and relating to mercantile
matters, and to arbitrate in all litigations between Russian subjects,
if both parties desire him to do so.1

He must do all in his power to settle any differences or disputes
which may arise between Russian merchants established in or travelling
through the place in which he resides, if the interested parties apply
to him and formally declare that they will abide by his decision without
appeal to any foreign authority. This declaration, and also the
statement, requisite according to the rules of courts of arbitration,2
that the persons in litigation wish to have recourse to such, must be
legalised by a Russian State Consul.3

If the parties do not choose to submit to the Consul’s decision,
or if it is expressly mentioned in the statement handed in by them
that they wish to reserve to themselves the right to appeal to a legally
constituted court, it is open to them to appeal to the courts of the
Empire. In any case, the Consul will communicate on the subject
with the Imperial Legation to which he is subordinate.4

CHAPTER XII.—Consular Jurisdiction in
Non-Christian States.

In Persia, Turkey, China and Corea, Russian Consuls have the right
of[jurisdiction over Russian subjects residing in those countries
enjoying the privilege of Exterritoriality.
