and police measures towards them. In extreme cases they may
request the Imperial Russian Legation at Teheran to have the
offending parties expelled from Persia, accompanying their request with a
statement of the reasons which have induced them to resort to such
extreme measures.

In civilised countries the competency of Russian Consular officials
in relation to their fellow subjects is much more restricted. They are
required to execute all commissions and instructions entrusted to
them by the Home Government, whose interests, as Government
agents, it is their duty to serve ; but they are not at liberty to
interfere with the powers of local jurisdiction or of the police, and are
only entitled to the assistance of the local authorities on the basis of
their exequatur, or other official recognition of their competency,
for protection in cases of emergency or in cases specially provided
for in State treaties or in accordance with local law. A special duty
rests with the Russian Consul-General at New York, who is instructed
to arrest any Russian subject who, for a crime committed in Russia,
is to be repatriated on an extradition warrant.1

Consular Officers are often invited by the Russian authorities to
communicate with Russian subjects residing in their districts or to
hand them documents. In such cases a voucher signed by the recipient
of the communication should be sent to the authority in question
to prove that the commission has been properly executed. If the
person for whom the message is intended resides in the same town
as the Consular Officer, the Consul is entitled to summon him to
appear at the Consulate. If he is not a local resident, the Consular
Officer must apply, as in the case of communications with foreigners,2
to the police of the place, requesting them to make the necessary
communication, or to deliver the document, against a voucher signed
by the recipient. This voucher is then to be sent to the authority
from whom the message was received. Elective Consular Officers
forward such vouchers to their State Consuls. Direct correspondence
with the persons referred to is not recommended, as they frequently
refuse to give the required vouchers and the Consular Officer is left
without the means of proving to his superiors that he has fulfilled
the commission entrusted to him.

In order to facilitate such communications, the Consular Officer
should be provided with as complete a list as possible of all Russian
subjects residing in his district, and their addresses. Russian travellers
are requested to leave their addresses at the Consulate. In Persia,
Russian subjects arriving at a town where there is a Russian Legation
or Consulate, are required to present themselves at such Legation or
Consulate as soon as possible and declare the purpose of their journey.3

Russian subjects residing abroad receive, through the medium
of Russian Consular Officers, notifications and summonses relating
to military service in Russia.
