ARRIVAL OF WARSHIPS.

foreign waters, Consular Officers at seaports are required to report
to the Department of Inspection of the Ministry of Marine, the
arrival and departure at such seaports of all Russian warships and
any occurrences of importance that take place on board of such vessels
while they are abroad.1 Elective Consular Officers report to their
State Consul.

CHAPTER II.—Pilotage and Fresh Water.

As soon as the Consular Officer has been apprised of the expected
arrival of a ship of war in a port, the entrance to which requires the
assistance of a pilot, he must take the necessary steps to send
someone to meet the ship as soon as sighted. In every case the Consul
must pay for the service rendered by pilots, and such payments
must be made on production of certificates given by the commanders
of ships of war. State Consuls must apply to the Ministry of Marine
for the reimbursement of these outlays,2 Elective Consular Officers to
the State Consuls to whom they are subordinate.

The amount of remuneration paid to pilots for their services is
determined by the local scale of charges, the amount varying in some
ports according to the spot where the pilot is taken on board. As,
however, the scales of charges referred to are frequently not known
to captains, or may not be understood by them, it is desirable, when
the pilot’s account is presented at the Consulate, that it be checked
by the Consul, for which purpose a copy of the local scale of pilotage
charges should be kept in the office.3

The Consul must inform the commander of the war vessel as soon
as possible where and how he can obtain a supply of fresh water.

CHAPTER III.—Assistance to Officers of the

Navy.

Consular Officers are bound to afford assistance and protection to
all Officers of the Imperial Russian Navy and to other employees
of the Russian Ministry of Marine who are on special missions abroad.4
Especially they must render, as far as they are able to do so, every
assistance to the Officers of the Imperial Russian Navy whenever
they are required to do so by the commander of a Russian ship of
