destination stated in the contract. If it should happen later that the
captain is changed, the route altered, or the voyage extended, the
crew must proceed with the vessel until she reaches the next Finnish
port, unless it is expressly stipulated otherwise, and they have the
right, during the whole voyage, to the monthly wages agreed upon in
the first instance. If the voyage is prolonged, the amount paid to
sailors engaged for the voyage only must be increased in proportion.
In such cases, moreover, seamen are entitled to the current rate of
wages paid at the port where they signed on.1

In case of the purchase of a foreign vessel by a Russian subject
abroad, or of the loss of the crew list of a Russian ship, Consular
Officers may make out a new crew list, using the following form :—

Crew List of the Russian trading vessel of tons

net register, belonging to the port of bound from
to (made out in place of the old one
which has been lost).

Current number. Date. [-Occupation.-] {+Occupa- tion.+} Name, Patronymic and Surname. [-Nationality. Signature.-] {+Nation- ality. Signa- ture.+} Wages per month. Advance. Signature of the authority enrolling the man.

Supercargoes must also be enrolled in the crew list. They do not
require to be provided with a passport.

When sailors of foreign nationality sign the articles of a Russian
ship, on discharge they have no right to claim repatriation, or to be
sent back to the place from which they signed their articles. It is
a general principle of International Law that sailors serving on board
the ship of a foreign nationality are subject to the law of that nationality
in respect to service on board that ship. Therefore, provided that the
captain of a Russian ship does not undertake by special agreement to
repatriate foreign sailors serving on board his ship, nor does he promise
beforehand to send them to the port at which the agreement was signed,
and in the absence of special State treaties regulating this question,
such an obligation does not exist. For the same reason Russian sailors
who have been discharged from foreign ships abroad, are sent back
to their country, if so desired, at the expense of the Russian
Government.

CHAPTER VI.—Dismissal and Discharge of
Sailors from Russian Ships abroad.

Except in cases of capture, confiscation, sale2 or wreck of the vessel,3
or illness of a member of the crew,4 or when the agreement between
the captain and the sailor has been signed for a period of time which
expired or for a certain voyage which was duly completed6—the
Consul must not give his consent to the captain of a Russian vessel
to discharge a Russian sailor in a foreign country, unless the captain
is compelled to dismiss him for very urgent reasons.
