Reports on matters which concern different Departments of the
Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, for instance, the taking up of
duties, or the receiving of money assignments, etc., must not be sent
to each different department simultaneously, but must all be addressed
to the Second Deputy.

Telegrams concerning affairs of private persons cannot be paid for.
by the Government Exchequer except in such cases when the interest
of the Government service makes wiring necessary.

Telegrams to Directors of the Chancellery Departments and
Archives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs must be sent to the
Departments which are subordinate to them and not to them personally.1

CHAPTER XXII.—The Suppression of White

Slavery.

A convention concluded on 18th May 1904, between Russia, France,
Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden and Norway
and Switzerland, provides for administration measures to be adopted
for the prevention of the trade in women for immoral purposes. In
order to effect this, Russian Consular Officers will be advised by local
authorities, wherever possible, of the arrival of the victims and of their
nationality.2 On the other hand, where possible, Consular Officers are
invited to furnish such information to the Russian Society for the
protection of women. Elective Consular Officers report to the State
Consuls of their district, and the latter direct to the said Committee,3
and receive communications from the Committee direct. Similar
•committees have been established in the countries of all the high
contracting parties.

CHAPTER XXIII.—Repatriation.

In order to facilitate the repatriation of needy Russian subjects an
agreement has been concluded between the Russian Ministry of Foreign
Affairs and the Committee of the Volunteer Fleet, to the effect that
the latter undertakes to repatriate for the period of one year, up to
100 needy Russian subjects on the ships of the fleet, free of charge,
when it has been certified by Russian Consular Officers that such persons
are utterly destitute. Not more than five of such cases can be sent at
•one time. If more passengers are sent, then the ordinary fee must be
paid by the Consular Officer who sends them. Accounts thereof are
to be presented to the II. Department of the Russian Ministry of
