also prohibited from doing so on any other person’s account. Any
one having the right to engage in the industry in question may
establish associations for the purpose, the statutes of which must be
submitted for approval to the local mining administration and to the
Department of Mines,.

Before prospecting for minerals it is necessary to obtain a permit
from the local mining Administration. On the discovery of a new
mine a declaration, accompanied by a plan and detailed description,
must be sent to the Administration.

Foreigners are not permitted to acquire land for mining purposes
in Poland, but any foreign industrial company or business association
there, established in accordance with the laws of their own country,
may continue to carry on such an industry on land situated in Poland,
if such land was acquired previously to the publication of the Imperial
ukas of the 17th May 1887.

CHAPTER III.—Petroleum Industry.

The petroleum industry is open to foreigners in all parts of the Empire,
except :—

(«) The maritime regions,
(b) The island of Sakhalin.

This industry is subject to provisional rules as follows :—
Jews who are entitled to reside in any part of the Empire, and all
foreigners and foreign associations, including those having the right
to engage in commercial and industrial enterprises in Russia, must
obtain the special authorisation of the Ministry of Agriculture and of
the Imperial Domain, and of the Governor-General of the Caucasus,
before they can acquire or exploit the petroleum fields of the Caucasus,
or prospect or obtain concessions of such lands. This law does not
apply to cases of inheritance. Jews or foreigners are not permitted
to have the sole management of petroleum plants.

Proprietors of petroleum fields are bound to inform the local
Administrator of Mines every time they strike a well or commence to
work one.

To prospect on Crown territory a special permit is required from
the local Administration of the Imperial Domains.

CHAPTER IV.—Manufacture and Sale of Salt.

Foreigners are freely permitted to work salt found on their own
property. They are also permitted to lease the salt-beds and
saltworks belonging to the State. The trade in salt is free to all, including
foreigners, and is free of all taxes, direct or indirect.

The importation of salt by way of the ports of the Black Sea and
the Sea of Azof and of Transcaucasia is prohibited.
