company recognised in Russia must be represented there by a
responsible agent, both for the purposes of pleading for it in courts of justice
and of managing the company’s affairs in general. This agent must
be furnished by the company with adequate powers :—

(a) To engage in all operations that are within the sphere of the
company’s activity ;

(b) To plead, in the company’s name, in all legal questions which
may arise in Russia in connection with the company’s operations ;

(c) To settle promptly all questions which may arise between
the society and the Government or individuals, or employees, or
artisans.

CHiVPTER V.—The Right to become Members of
Professional Guilds and Corporations, and
Honorary Citizens.

Foreigners, with the exception of Jews, are permitted to enrol
themselves as members of professional bodies and guilds of every description.
They are at liberty, further, to engage workmen, if they conform to
the general laws on this subject.

Foreigners who may be desirous of joining a professional body
or guild must submit a certificate signed by a foreign ecclesiastical
consistory or other competent authority, certifying that they are
of the Christian religion, and also an artisan’s certificate issued by
a technical college or some other similar institution in their native
country. In the absence of such certificate, specimens of the
candidate’s work must be submitted. The documents and vouchers must
be duly legalised by a Russian Legation or State Consulate. The
membership of a guild must be renewed at the expiration of twelve
months.

Foreigners whose activity might be of utility to Russia may receive
the title of honorary citizens. This title, and the advantages and
rights appertaining thereto, are conferred upon foreigners by a special
Order (ukas) of the Ruling Senate. The foreigner must make
application to the Minister of the Interior and pay a duty of 15 roubles.
Foreigners already possessing the title of honorary citizen are not
entitled to become hereditary honorary citizens. This latter title
can only be given to foreigners who have become naturalised in Russia
after ten years have elapsed from their nomination as honorary citizens.
If not naturalised they are entitled to petition that the title of
hereditary honorary Russian citizen be given to their children, if the latter
are Russian subjects. The duty on this title is 30 roubles.
