PRIZES AND PRIZE COURTS. p. vii., сн. xiii.

by the local Russian Naval Agent, the Russian Consul, or some other
person specially appointed for the purpose, in the presence of two
witnesses, who must, if possible, be Russian subjects. On the
conclusion of the business, all papers relating to it must be forwarded
to the nearest prize court.

The Russian Naval Agent or Consul or the person specially appointed
to perform the duties described above, is at liberty to take the
necessary steps with regard to the captured property in accordance with
Arts. 66 and 67, whenever it is convenient to await the decision of the
prize court (Art. 68).

When necessary, the court is empowered to procure additional
evidence, to arrange for the exchange of documents by the parties
and for the production by them of additional evidence, and to fix the
time when such exchange or such production of evidence must take
place. The examination of additional witnesses produced in
accordance with this regulation is conducted either by the court itself, or,
by its direction, by a naval authority not concerned in the capture,
or by one of the persons mentioned in Art. 68 (Art. 70).

On the basis of Arts. 68 and 70, a Russian Consul is permitted to
participate in enquiries relating to :—

1. Claims for remuneration for losses incurred through detention,
destruction, loss, or damage to merchant vessels.

2. The restitution of merchant vessels or cargoes which have been
recaptured from the enemy to their original owners and the allotment
of the amount of prize money to be paid by such owners, and

3. The allotment and distribution of prize money for the capture
-of ships and cargoes belonging to the enemy.

CHAPTER XIV.—Rules and Regulations for Ships
Conducted by an Icebreaker through the Ice.

1. Ships, if in port, must make their request for assistance through
the ice to the commander of the port and, when at sea, to the
commander of the icebreaker.

2. The commander of the port, or, if the icebreaker is outside the
limits of the port, the commander of the icebreaker, has the right to
refuse the request of a ship to be taken in or out of the harbour, if he
considers that, owing to construction, shape, power of engines, outfit or
loading of the ship the latter will be put into danger by going through
the ice.
