war. They will particularly endeavour to make themselves useful on
all occasions when they can facilitate the relations between the
commander and crew and fhe local authorities, bankers, &C.1

The Consul must inform the commander of the marks of honour
to be paid to the forts, ships of war, and the local authorities, in
conformity with the regulations and customs of the port, and as paid
by the ships of other nations.2

The Consul must give the commander a list of the local authorities
to whom in his opinion the commander should pay his visit, and
must accompany him on all such visits.3

Experience teaches that it is advisable for Russian Consular Officers
to make sure beforehand, privately, that the official calls of a
commander of a Russian warship will be duly reciprocated, before they
give to the commander a list of local authorities to be called upon.

The Consul must do his best to establish and maintain a good
understanding between the commanders of ships and the local
authorities ; he must try at the same time to prevent and to settle
all disagreements with the inhabitants.4

Warships.

CHAPTER IV.—Purchases and Accounts of
Warships.

The Consul must assist the commander in his purchases, in engaging
workmen, and in obtaining everything necessary for repairing the
ships and transports.

When a Russian ship of war puts into a port where a Consul resides,
for repair or provisions, necessary articles or money, the commander
must send the Consul a detailed list of everything he requires, and
the latter must provide the same on the most favourable terms.

In case any of the materials or articles required should not be
procurable in the port, the Consul must obtain the assistance of the
local authority, if desired to do so by the commander.5

In delivering the articles ordered to the commander of the ship,
against a receipt, the Consul must send him an account showing the
price of the articles supplied, or the money he may have advanced.
He must sign this account himself, declaring at the same time whether
the amount has been repaid to him or not. Payments which the
Consul has made on account of the Ministry of Marine in settling
the accounts of commanders of ships of war, must be certified by
the signature of the commander and countersigned by the paymaster.

In cases of extreme necessity the Consul shall, if requested by
the commander, provide him with money and receive in exchange
drafts on the Ministry of Marine.6

State Consular Officers are not entitled to any commission what-
