XVIII.-REGUIiATIOIVS CONCERNIIVG PRECEIDEIVCi: OF DIPL.Or»IATIC AGKNTS. 

The rules on this subject which have been prescribed by the Department are the same as those 
contained in the seven rules of the Congress of Vienna, found in the protocol of the session of March 
9, 1815, and in the supplementary or eighth rule of the Congress of Aix la Chapelle of November 21, 
1818. They are as follows : 

Article I. Diplomatic agents are divided into three classes: That of ambassadors, legates, 
or nuncios ; that of envoys, ministers, or other persons accredited to sovereigns; that of charg6s 
d'affaires accredited to ministers for foreign affairs. 

Art. II. Ambassadors, legates, or nuncios only have the representative character. 

Art. III. Diplomatic agents on an extraordinary mission have not, on that account, any supe- 
riority of rank. 

Art. IV. Diplomatic agents shall take precedence in their respective classes according to the 
date of the official notification of their arrival. The present regulation shall not cause any innova- 
tion with regard to the representative of the Pope. 

Art. V. A uniform mode shall be determined in each state for the reception of diplomatic 
agents of each class. 

Art. VI. Relations of consanguinity or of family alliance between courts confer no precedence 
on their diplomatic agents. The same rule also applies to political alliances. 

Art. VII. In acts or treaties between several powers which grant alternate precedence, the 
order which is to be observed in the signatures shall be decided by lot between the ministers. 

Art. VIII. * * * It is agreed that ministers resident accredited to them shall form, with 
respect to their precedence, an intermediate class between ministers of the second class and charg6s 
d'affaires. 

These rules have been formally or tacitly accepted by all governments except the Ottoman 
Porte, which divides diplomatic representatives into three classes only — ambassadors, ministers, 
and charges d'affaires.

sular offices as the Secretary of State shall direct, and shall report to him. Each consular office 
shall be inspected at least once in every two years. Whenever the President has reason to believe 
that the business of a consulate or a consulate-general is not being properly conducted and that it 
is necessary for the public interest, he may authorize any consul-general at large to suspend the 
consul or consul-general, and administer the office in his stead for a period not exceeding ninety 
days. In such case the consul-general at large so authorized shall have power to suspend any vice

tion is made to him therefor, within the limits of his consulate, to administer to or take from any

tion of such officers shall be by salaries fixed by law; but this shall not apply to consular agents, 
who shall be paid by one half of the fees received in their offices, up to a maximum sum of one 
thousand dollars in any one year, the other half being accounted for and paid into the Treasury of 
the United States. And vice-consuls, in addition to such compensation as they may be entitled to 
receive as consuls or clerks, may receive such portion of the salaries of the consul-general or con- 
suls for whom they act as shall be provided by regulation. 

Sec. 9. That fees for the consular certification of invoices shall be, and thay hereby are, included

OF THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE. 

EXECUTIVE ORDERS. 

Whereas, The Congress, by Section 1753 of the Revised Statutes of the United States has pro- 
vided as follows: — 

"The President is authorized to prescribe such regulations for the admission of persons into 
the civil service of the United States as may best promote the efficiency thereof, and ascertain the 
fitness of each candidate in respect to age, health, character, knowledge, and ability for the branch 
of service into which he seeks to enter; and for this purpose he may employ suitable persons to 
conduct such inquiries, and may prescribe their duties, and establish regulations for the conduct 
of persons who may receive appointments in the civil service." 

And, Whereas, it is deemed best for the public interest to extend to the diplomatic service the 
aforesaid provision of the Revised Statutes and the general principles embodied in the Civil Service 
Act of January i6th, 18S3; — 



APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE DIPLOMATIC SERVICE. 1 37 

The Secretary of State is hereby directed to report from time to time to the President, along 
with his recommendations, the names of those secretaries of the higher grades in the diplomatic 
service who by reason of efficient service have demonstrated special capacity for promotion to be 
chiefs of mission. 

There shall be kept a careful efficiency record of every officer of the diplomatic service, in order 
that there may be no promotion except upon well established efficiency as shown in the service, 
and that retention in the service may be conditioned upon the officers' maintaining a degree of effi- 
ciency well up to the average high standard which the interests of the service demand. 

Initial appointments from outside the service to secretaryships in the diplomatic service shall 
be only to the Classes of Third Secretary of Embassy, or, in case of higher existent vacancies, of 
Second Secretary of Legation, or of Secretary of Legation at such post as has assigned to it but one 
secretary. Vacancies in secretaryships of higher classes shall be filled by promotion from the 
lower grades of the service, based upon efficiency and ability as shown in the service. 

To make it more practicable to extend to the appointment, promotion, transfer, or retention 
of secretaries in the diplomatic service the civil service principle of promotion on the basis of effi- 
ciency as shown in the service, and in order that the action of the Department may be understood 
by the officers concerned, all secretaryships in the diplomatic service shall be graded according to 
the importance, volume, difficulty, or other aspects of the work done by each mission in proportion 
to the number of men allotted to it, and this classification shall be made known to the members of 
the service. 

A person separated from a secretaryship in the diplomatic service without delinquency or mis- 
conduct at his own request in writing may, within a period of one year from the date of such 
separation, be reinstated in the grade from which he was separated, provided he shall have been 
originally appointed after the prescribed examination for that grade. In the event, however, that 
such separation shall be for the purpose of undertaking other work under the Department of State, 
the limitation of one year for eligibility for reinstatement shall not hold. This rule shall be appli- 
cable as regards reinstatements to the consular service and also to the Department of State when 
transfers shall have been to another branch of the foreign service. 

The Third* Assistant Secretary of State, the Solicitor for the Department of State, the Chief of the 
Diplomatic Bureau, and the Chief of the Bureau of Appointments, and the Chief Examiner of the 
Civil Service Commission or some person whom the Commission shall designate, or such persons 
as may be designated to serve in their stead, are hereby constituted a Board whose duty it shall 
be to determine the qualifications of persons designated by the President for examination to deter- 
mine their fitness for possible appointment as secretaries of embassy or legation. 

The examination herein provided for shall be held in Washington at such times as the needs 
of the service require. Candidates will be given reasonable notice to attend, and no person shall 
be designated to take the examination within thirty days of the time set therefor. 

The examinations shall be both oral and in writing and shall include the following subjects: — 
international law, diplomatic usage, and a knowledge of at least one modern language other than 
English, to wit, French, Spanish, or German; also the natural, industrial and commercial resources 
and the commerce of the United States, especially with reference to the possibilities of increasing 
and extending the trade of the United States with fo^-eign countries; American history, govern- 
ment and institutions; and the modern history since 1850 of Europe, Latin America and the Far 
East. The object of the oral examination shall also be to determine the candidate's alertness, 
general contemporary information, and natural fitness for the service, including mental, moral, 
and physical qualifications, character, address, and general education and good command of Eng- 
lish. In this part of the exarpination the applications previously filed will be given due weight by 
the Board of Examiners. In the determination of the final rating, the written and oral ratings 
shall be of equal weight. A physical examination shall also be included as supplemental. 

Examination papers shall be rated on a scale of 100, and no person with a general rating of 
less than 80 shall be certified as eligible. 

No person shall be certified as eligible who is under twenty-one or over thirty-five f years of age, 
or who is not a citizen of the United States, or who is not of good character and habits and physically,

mentally, and temperamentally qualified for the proper performance of diplomatic work, or who has 
not been specially designated by the President for appointment to the diplomatic service subject to 
examination and subject to the occurrence of an appropriate vacancy. 

Upon the conclusion of the examinations, the names of the candidates who shall have attained 
upon the whole examination the required mark will be certified by the Board to the Secretary of 
State as eligible for appointment. 

The names of candidates will remain on the eligible list for two years, except in the case of 
such candidates as shall within that period be appointed or shall withdraw their names. Names 
which have been on the eligible list for two years will be dropped therefrom and the candidates 
concerned will not again be eligible for appointment unless upon fresh application, designation 
anew for examination, and the successful passing of such second examination. 

Applicants for appointment who are designated to take an examination and who fail to report 
therefor, shall not be entitled to take a subsequent examination unless they shall have been spe- 
cifically designated to take such subsequent examination. 

In designations for appointment subject to examination and in appointments after examina- 
tion, due regard will be had to the rule, that as between candidates of equal merit, appointments 
• should be made so as to tend to secure proportional representation of all the States and Territories 
in the diplomatic service; and neither in the designation for examination or certification or appoint- 
ment after examination will the political affiliations of the candidates be considered. 

The Board of Examiners is authorized to issue such notices and to make all such rules as it 
may deem necessary to accomplish the object of this regulation. 

Transfers from one branch of the foreign service to another shall not occur except upon 
designation by the President for examination and the successful passing of the examination pre- 
scribed for the service to which such transfer is made. Unless the exigencies of the service 
imperatively demand it, such person to be transferred shall not have preference in designation for 
the taking of the examination or in appointment from the eligible list, but shall follow the course 
of procedure prescribed for all applicants for appointment to the service which he desires to enter. 
To persons employed in the Department of State at salaries of eighteen hundred dollars or more, 
the preceding rule shall not apply and they may be appointed, on the basis of ability and eflSciency, 
to any grade of the diplomatic service. 

The Secretary of State may, as provided by Rule III of the present Civil Service Rules, request 
the Civil Service Commission to hold special examinations for the position of clerk of class two or 
above in the Department of State, such examination to follow generally and so far as the Secretary 
of State shall deem practicable, the lines of the present foreign service examinations. 

In the case of promotions in the Department of State to the grades of clerk of class two or 
above, the Secretary of State may require the passing of an examination in the general nature of 
the present diplomatic or consular service examinations. 

With further reference to the matter of promotions in the Department of State, the Secretary 
of State is directed to cause to be kept, as a guide in determining the promotion or retention of the 

personnel, a careful record of the efficiency of each clerk in the Department.

No officer or employee of the Government shall, directly or indirectly, instruct or be concerned 
in any manner in the instruction of any person or classes of persons, with a view to their special 
preparation for the examinations of the Boards of Examiners for the diplomatic and consular 
services. 

The fact that any oflScer or employee is found so engaged shall be considered sufl!icient cause 

for his removal from the service.

INFORMATION FOR APPLICANTS DESIRING APPOINTMENT TO SECRETARYSHIPS 

IN THE DIPLOMATIC SERVICE. 

Diplomatic-service examinations are not held at regularly stated periods, but only at such 
times as it is deemed expedient to replenish the list of those eligible for such appointment. The 



APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE DIPLOMATIC SERVICE. 139 

dates of the holding of examinations are publicly announced through the press. It is not the prac- 
tice to notify applicants individually of the date set for an examination. Examinations are held 
in Washington only, and consist of written, oral, and physical tests. 

Applications for appointment should be addressed to the Secretary of State. 

An application is considered as pending for a period of two years. After such period has 
elapsed without its being acted upon, another application with endorsements will be necessary to 
obtain for it further consideration. 

Applicants for appointment, in their correspondence with the Department, should always sign 
their names as given in their applications, without enlargement or contraction. 

A candidate is not designated for examination with a view to his assignment to a particular 
post or a particular part of the world, but in order to determine his eligibility for assignment to 
some post where, in the judgment of the Department, his services would best serve the public 
interest. 

No special training is accepted in lieu of the prescribed examination. 

The Government does not maintain a school for the training of candidates for the foreign serv- 
ice; neither does it furnish a course of study in any school or suggest a list of books to be studied. 

The Department is not able definitely to forecast when vacancies in the service may occur. 

Blank forms of application for appointment may be had upon application to the Department 
of State. 

For information concerning the appointment of clerks in diplomatic missions, see page 140.

Minister resident and consul-general to Liberia, five thousand dollars;

GENERAL INFORMATION REGARDING SECRETARIES IN THE DIPLOMATIC 

SERVICE. 

Secretaries of embassy or legation are entrusted with the duty of transcribing the official com- 
munications of the head of the mission and of recording the same in books to be carefully pre- 
served with the archives of the office, and are expected to perform such other duties of an official 
character as may be required of them by their chief of mission. The classification and indexing 
of the originals of all despatches, notes, and official communications, the custody of the records, 
books, seal and cipher of the embassy or legation are also under their control, subject to the 
general supervision and direction of the head of the mission. They are also authorized by statute 
to administer oaths, take depositions, and generally to perform notarial acts. 

All diplomatic officers are allowed to draw on the Secretary of State at the rate of five cents 
per mile for the distance required to be traveled in direct transit to or from their posts, but not 
while traveling on leave of absence. They are also allowed compensation at the rate of their 

t 

salary for the time spent in transit within a maximum period fixed for the post. 

When a secretary of embassy or legation acts as charge d'affaires ad interini he is allowed, in 
addition to his salary as secretary, the difference between such salary and 50 per centum of the 
salary of the chief of the mission. 



140 APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE DIPLOMATIC SERVICE. 

The statutory leave of absence granted to diplomatic officers annually is sixty days, but it 
rests with the Department to determine whether the leave may be granted. When leave of absence 
with permission to visit the United States is granted, the transit time, within a maximum period 
allowed, is not counted as part of the sixty days. 



INFORMATION REGARDING CLERICAL APPOINTMENTS IN THE DIPLOMATIC 

SERVICE. 

Clerks are employed at the various diplomatic missions and receive compensation varying, as 
a rule, from |i,ooo to f 1,800 a year. Their duties embrace bookkeeping, letter writing, recording 
correspondence, and routine chancery work. It is usually required that clerks be stenographers 
and typewriters and possess a knowledge of the language of the country where they are employed. 
They are frequently appointed upon nomination of a chief of mission, but the Department of 
State exercises its right to make independent appointments whenever that course appears to be in 
the interest of the service. Under the law American citizens only may be appointed to clerkships 
in American diplomatic missions. 

For such appointments no examination is required, but to become eligible for promotion to 
the grade of secretary of embassy or legation a clerk in a diplomatic mission must successfully 
pass the prescribed entrance examination. 

Applications for clerical appointments should be filed with the Department of State. In view, 
however, of the fact that such appointments are frequently made upon the nomination of the prin- 
cipal officer under whom service is to be rendered, direct correspondence wich the principal officer 
at the post in which the applicant particularly desires to serve is also advisable. 

A blank form of application for such an appointment may be had upon application to the 
Department of State. 

SAMPLE EXAMINATION FOR THE DIPLOMATIC SERVICE.

examination — for the taking of which two days of six hours each are allowed:

(c) State some of the leading writers in international law, enumerate some text-books on the 
subject, and state what books you would refer to if a question of international law arose with 
which you are unfamiliar. 

2. (a) Upon the execution of Louis XVI, the British Government refused to receive the French 
diplomatic agent and sent him his passports. Was the action of the British Government correct? 

{i>) Napoleon III began suit in the Supreme Court of the United States. Upon his dethrone- 
ment and the establishment of the French Republic on September 3, 1870, it was contended that 
the suit abated by reason of the deposition of the Emperor Napoleon. What, in your opinion, 
should be the holding on this point? 

(c) Cotton owned by the Confederate States was shipped to their agents in Liverpool, who paid 
the expenses of transportation, took possession of the cotton, stored it in warehouses, and guarded 
it at considerable expense. Upon the fall of the Confederacy the United States filed a bill, praying 
to have the cotton delivered to a duly constituted agent of the United Stales. The agents of the 
Confederacy seek to enforce a lien on the cotton for their expenses. How, in your opinion, should 
the court decide? 

3. (a) A local statute forbids fishing within the three-mile limit without a license and forbids, 
under penalty of confiscation of the vessel, all fishing on Sunday. The sloop Venturesome began 
fishing Sunday morning beyond the three-mile limit, but after the nets, had been laid and the fish 
surrounded the Ventiiresojue drifted within the three-mile limit and was apprehended while taking 
the fish from the nets placed beyond the three-mile limit, but which had drifted within the limit. 
Upon suit brought for confiscation of the vessel, what, in your opinion, would be the holding of 
the court?

(^) Suppose the vessel had begun fishing within the three-mjle limit, and noticing the approach 
of a revenue cutter put to sea. The cutter followed, captured the Venturesome upon the high seas, 
brought it to port, and began condemnation proceedings. What, in your opinion, should be the 
holding of the court? 

4. {a) A diplomatic agent, driving his automobile at a rate of speed forbidden by law, runs over 
and seriously injures a passer-by. The chauffeur is notified by the police to go with him to the 
police station but refuses. The policeman thereupon arrests him, the diplomatic agent protesting 
that he must be driven at once to the State Department on important business for his Government. 
If consulted, what would you advise the diplomatic agent and the chauffeur as to their rights and 
duties in the premises. 

(fi) A diplomatic agent leases a house for the period of two years at an annual rental of five 
thousand dollars, payable monthly. The agent pays rent for the first three months, but thereafter 
neglects to pay the rent when due. At the expiration of a year the owner of the house seeks to 
evict the diplomat and files an action to recover the rent due and damages for the breach of the 
ease. What, in your opinion, should be the result? Would it make any difference in your answer 
if instead of a diplomat the tenant was a consul-general? 

5. (a) The late President Castro proceeded to La Guaira upon a French merchant ship. Upon 
his arrival in La Guaira the Venezuelan authorities came aboard and demanded Castro, but the 
captain refused to deliver him. The Venezuelan authorities thereupon withdrew, and the captain, 
fearing that force would be used, transferred Castro to a French man-of-war lying in the harbor. 
Upon demand made upon the man-of-war to surrender Castro and refusal, a land battery opened 
fire upon the man-of-war. Discuss and distinguish the two situations. 

{/>) During the recent revolution in Constantinople one X, a member of the late Turkish Cabi- 
net, applied to the American embassy for admission and was admitted. One Y, a member of the 
recent Government, indicted for the misappropriation of funds, secretly entered the American em- 
bassy. Z, an opponent of the revolution, pursued by a mob, seeks refuge in the American embassy. 
What should be the action of the American embassy in each of these cases? 

Would it make any difference, in your opinion, if the events described had taken place in Paris 
upon the overthrow of Napoleon III or in Brazil upon the expulsion of Dom Pedro? 

6. A Japanese army crosses the boundary between Korea and China at 1.30 a. m., on May 
15. 19 — • News of the invasion of China by Japanese forces does not reach Manila until May 17, 
19 — . On May 16, without any knowledge of the state of affairs created by the invasion of 
China, X, Y & Z, an American firm, shipped on board an American steamer a cargo of arms and 
ammunition, destined to a Chinese port, in fulfillment of a contract previously entered into. The 
vessel is captured by a Japanese cruiser on the ground that war existed between China and Japan. 
X, Y & Z asked the good offices of the American embassy at Tokyo to secure the release of the 
cargo on the ground that there was no declaration of war and the American shippers did not and 
could not know at the date of the shipment of the hostile relation between Japan and China. What 
advice would you give to the representative of X, Y & Z? 

7. Discuss the effect of war upon trade; upon executory and executed contracts?

Make an idiomatic translation of the following into the language chosen by you above. 

Department of State, 

Washington, August 12, igoo. 

The Government of the United States learns with satisfaction of the appointment of Earl Li 
Hung Chang as envoy plenipotentiary to conduct negotiations with the powers, and will, on its 
part, enter upon such negotiations with a desire to continue the friendly relations so long existing 
between the two countries. 

It is evident that there can be uq general negotiation between China and the powers so long as 
the ministers of the powers and the persons under their protection remain in their present position 
of restraint and danger, and that the powers can not cease their efforts for the delivery of these 
representatives, to which they are constrained by the highest considerations of national honor, 
except under an arrangement adequate to accomplish a peaceable deliverance. 

We are ready to enter into an agreement between the powers and the Chinese Government for 
a cessation of hostile demonstrations, on condition that a sufficient body of the forces composing 
the relief expedition shall be permitted to enter Peking unmolested and to escort the foreign min- 
isters and residents back to Tientsin; this movement being provided for and secured by such 
arrangements and dispositions of troops as shall be considered satisfactory by the generals com- 
manding the forces composing the relief expedition.

THE COIVSUL.AR SERVICE. 

EXECUTIVE ORDERS. 

Whereas, The Congress, by Section 1753 of the Revised Statutes of the United States has pro- 
vided as follows: 

"The President is authorized to prescribe such regulations for the admission of persons into 
the civil service of the United States as may best promote the efficiency thereof, and ascertain the 
fitness of each candidate in respect to age, health, character, knowledge, and ability for the branch 
of service into which he seeks to enter; and for this purpose he may employ suitable persons to 
conduct such inquiries, and may prescribe their duties, and establish regulations for the conduct 
of persons who may receive appointments in the civil service." 

And, whereas, the Congress has classified and graded the consuls-general and consuls of the 
United States by the act entitled "An act to provide for the reorganization of the consular service 
of the United States," approved April 5, 1906, and has thereby made it practicable to extend to 
that branch of the civil service the aforesaid provisions of the Revised Statutes and the principles 
embodied in the Civil Service Act of January 16, 1883. 

Now, therefore, in the exercise of the powers conferred upon him by the Constitution and laws 
of the United States, the President makes the following regulations to govern the selection of 
consuls general and consuls in the civil service of the United States, subject always to the advice 
and consent of the Senate: — 

1. Vacancies in the office of consul-general and in the office of consul above class 8 shall be 
filled by promotion from the lower grades of the consular service, based upon ability and efficiency 
as shown in the service. 

2. Vacancies in the office of consul of class 8 and of consul of class 9 shall be filled: 

{a)* By promotion on the basis of ability and efficiency as shown in the service, of consular 
assistants f and of vice consuls, consular agents, student interpreters and interpreters in the con- 
sular or diplomatic service, who shall have been appointed to such offices upon examination. 



* As amended by Executive orders of December 12, igo6, and April 20, igo?. 
+ As amended by the Act approved May 21, 1908. 



APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE CONSULAR SERVICE. 145 

{^) By new appointments of candidates who have passed a satisfactory examination for 
appointment as consul as hereafter provided. 

3. Persons in the service of the Department of State w^ith salaries of two thousand dollars or 
upwards shall be eligible for pronKnion, on the basis of ability and efficiency as shown in the 
service, to any grade of the consular service above class 8 of consuls. 

4. The Secretary of State, or such officer of the Department of State as the President shall 
designate, the Director of the Consular Service,* the Chief of the Consular Bureau,* and the Chief 
Examinerof the Civil Service Commission, or some person whom said Commission shall designate, 
shall constitute a Board of Examiners for admission to the consular service. 

5. It shall be the duty of the Board of Examiners to formulate rules for and hold examina- 
tions of applicants for admission to the consular service. 

6. The scope and method of the examinations shall be determined by the Board of Examiners, 
but among the subjects shall be included at least one modern language other than English; the 
natural, industrial and commercial resources and the commerce of the United States, especially 
with reference to the possibilities of increasing and extending the trade of the United States with 
foreign countries; political economy; elements of international, commercial and maritime law. 

7. Examination papers shall be rated on a scale of 100, and no person rated at less than 80 
shall be eligible for certification. 

8. No one shall be examined who is under twenty-one or over fifty years of age, or who is 
not a citizen of the United States, or who is not of good character and habits and physically and 
mentally qualified for the proper performance of consular work, or who has not been specially 
designated by the President for appointment to the consular service subject to examination. 

g. Whenever a vacancy shall occur in the eighth or ninth class of consuls which the President 
may deem it expedient to fill, the Secretary of State shall inform the Board of Examiners, who 
shall certify to him the list of those persons eligible for appointment, accompanying the certifi- 
cate with a detailed report showing the qualifications, as revealed by examination, of the persons 
so certified. If it be desired to fill a vacancy in a consulate in a country in which the United States 
exercises extra-territorial jurisdiction, the Secretary of State shall so inform the Board of Exam- 
iners, who shall include in the list of names certified by it only such persons as have passed the 
examination provided for in this order, and who also have passed an examination in the funda- 
mental principles of the common law, the rules of evidence and the trial of civil and criminal cases. 
The list of names which the Board of Examiners shall certify shall be sent to the President for his 
information. 

10. No promotion shall be made except for efficiency, as shown by the work that the officer 
has accomplished, the ability, promptness and diligence displayed by him in the performance of 
all his official duties, his conduct and his fitness for the consular service. 

II. t It shall be the duty of the Board of Examiners to formulate rules for and hold examina- 
tions of persons designated for appointment as consular assistant X or as student interpreter, and of 
such persons designated for appointment as vice consul and consular agent, as shall desire to 
become eligible for promotion. The scope and method of such examination shall be determined 
by the Board of Examiners, but it shall include the same subjects hereinbefore prescribed for the 
examination of consuls. Any vice consul or consular agent now in the service, upon passing such 
an examination shall become eligible for promotion, as if appointed upon such examination. 

12. In designations for appointment subject to examination and in appointments after exam- 
ination, due regard will be had to the rule, that as between candidates of equal merit, appointments 
should be so made as to secure proportional representation of all the States and Territories in the 
consular service; and neither in the designation for examination or certification or appointment 
will the political affiliations of the candidate be considered.

such separation shall be for the purpose of undertaking other work under the Department of 
State, the limitation of one year for eligibility for reinstatement shall not hold. This rule shall be

in any manner in the instruction of any person or classes of persons, with a view to their special 
preparation for the examinations of the Boards of Examiners for the diplomatic and consular 
services. 

The fact that any officer or employee is found so engaged shall be considered sufficient cause 

for his removal from the service.

REGULATIONS GOVERNING EXAMINATIONS FOR THE CONSULAR SERVICE 
PROMULGATED BY THE BOARD OF EXAMINERS DECEMBER 13, 1906. 

I. The examinations will be the same for all grades and will be to determine a candidate's 
eligibility for appointment in the consular service, irrespective of the grade for which he may have 
been designated for examination and without regard to any particular office for which he may be 
selected. 

' 2. The examinations will consist of an oral and a written one, the two counting equally. The 
object of the oral examination will be to determine the candidate's business ability, alertness, 
general contemporary information, and natural fitness for the service, including moral, mental, 
and physical qualifications, character, address, and general education and good command of 
English. In this part of the examination the applications previously filed will be given due weight 
by the Board of Examiners, especially as evidence of the applicant's business experience and 
ability. The written examination will include those subjects mentioned in the Executive order, 
to wit, at least one modern language other than English — French, German, or Spanish;* the 
natural, industrial, and commercial resources and the commerce of the United States, especially 
with reference to possibilities of increasing and extending the foreign trade of the United States; 
political economy, and the elements of international, commercial, and maritime law. It will like- 
wise include American history, government, and institutions; political and commercial geography; 
arithmetic (as used in commercial statistics, tariff calculations, exchange, accounts, etc.); the 
modern history, since 1850, of Europe, Latin America, and the Far East, with particular attention 
to political, commercial, and economic tendencies. In the written examination, composition 
grammar, punctuation, spelling, and writing will be given attention. 

3. To become eligible for appointment, except as student interpreter, in a country where the 
United States exercises extraterritorial jurisdiction, the applicant must pass the examination 
outlined above, but sup[)lemented by questions to determine his knowledge of the fundamental 
principles of common law, the rules of evidence, and the trial of civil and criminal cases. 

4. The examinations to be given candidates for appointment as student interpreters will follow 
the same course as in the case of other consular officers, provided, however, that no one will be 
examined for admission to the consular service as a student interpreter who is not between the 
ages of nineteen and twenty-six, inclusive, and unmarried; and, provided further, that upon 
appointment each student interpreter shall sign an agreement to continue in the service so long as 
his services may be required, within a period of five f years. 

5. Upon the conclusion of the examinations the names of the candidates who shall have 
attained upon the whole examination an average mark of at least eighty, as required by the Execu- 
tive order, will be certified by the Board to the Secretary of State as eligible for appointment in the 
consular service, and the successful candidates will be informed that this has been done. 



*As amended by the Board of Examiners February 18, igii. 
t As amended by the Act approved May 2j, igo8. 



APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE CONSULAR SERVICE. 147 

6. The names of candidates will remain on the eligible list for two years, except in the case of 
such candidates as shall within that period be appointed, or as shall withdraw their names, and of 
candidates holding subordinate positions in the consular service, when eligibility shall not expire 
until appointment to consular rank or until separation from the service. Candidates whose names 
have thus been dropped from the eligible list will not again be eligible for appointment unless 
upon fresh application, designation anew for examination, and the successful passing of such 
second examination.* 



INFORMATION FOR APPLICANTS DESIRING APPOINTMENT IN THE CONSULAR 

SERVICE. 

Consular-service examinations are held usually once a year, in Washington only. 

No one may be examined who is not especially designated to take the examination. The letter 
of designation furnishes all information necessary as to date, place, etc., of the examination. 
Traveling and other personal expenses connected with the taking of examinations must be borne 
by the candi'dates. 

A general notice of examinations is announced through the public press. Notice is not sent 
to all applicants, but only to those designated for examination. 

Blank forms of application for appointment may be had upon application to the Department 
of State. 

Although designations for examination are made by the President, applications for appoint- 
ment should be addressed to the Secretary of State. 

An application is considered as pending for a period of two years. After such period has 
elapsed without its being acted upon, another application with indorsements will be necessary to 
obtain for it further consideration. 

Applicants for appointment, in their correspondence with the Department, should always sign 
their names as given in their applications, without enlargement or contraction. 

Originals of all endorsements listed in the application must be filed therewith, copies thereof 
not being acceptable. 

A candidate is not designated for examination with a view to his assignment to a particular 
post or a particular part of the world, but in order to determine his eligibility for appointment to 
class eight or nine. He may be assigned to any post where, in the judgment of the Department, 
his services would best serve the public interests. 

The Government does not maintain a school for the training of candidates for the foreign 
service; does not recommend any particular institution ; does not suggest a list of books to be 
studied, nor furnish a course of study in any school. 

No special training is accepted in lieu of the prescribed examination, and no transfers, without 
examination, are made to the consular service from other branches of the Government service. 
The successful passing of the regular entrance examination, except as provided for in regulations 
2 and 3 of the Executive order of June 27, 1906, is necessary for appointment. 

The Department publishes no list of vacant posts and is not able definitely to forecast when 
vacancies in the service may occur. 

Clerks in consular offices, vice consuls, and consular agents are appointed without examina- 
tion, but are only eligible for appointment to the grade of consul upon the passing of the regular 
entrance examination. 

Appointments to the consular service are made only after a rigid physical examination of the 
candidate. 

It is not the practice of the Department to designate for examination vice consuls, clerks in 
consulates, or consular agents until they have served at least two years. 

The written language examinations include papers in French, German, and Spanish only, and 
no other language will be accepted in lieu of one of these. An oral examination is also given the 
candidate, in the language selected by him in his written examination, to test his ability to con- 
verse in that language. He may also present in his oral examination any other languages with 
which he may be familiar. 

*As amended by the Board of Examiners October 25, ign. 



148 APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE CONSULAR SERVICE. 

Dependent upon the number of candidates, the examinations last from three to six days. The 
written part of the examination covers a period of two days of six hours each. The first four sub- 
jects will be given on the first day, and the remaining subjects on the day following, probably in 
the order'presented in the sample examination.

States are authorized or required to perform. A duty of prime importance is the promotion of 
American commerce by reporting available opportunities for the introduction of our products, 
aiding in the establishment of relations between American and foreign commercial houses, and 
lending assistance wherever practicable to the marketing of American merchandise abroad. 

In addition to the foregoing duties, consular officers in China, Turkey, Siam, Morocco, and a 
few other so-called non-Christian countries, are invested with judicial powers over American citi- 
zens in those countries. These powers are usually defined by treaty, but generally include the 
trial of civil cases to which Americans are parties, and in some instances extend to the trial of 
criminal cases. 

VICE-CONSULAR OFFICERS. 

A vice-consular officer takes the place and exercises all the functions or powers of a consul- 
general or consul when the latter is temporarily absent or relieved from duty. When a vice-con- 
sul is lawfully authorized to assume charge of a consulate general or consulate during the absence 
of the principal officer at the post to which he shall have been appointed or assigned, he shall be 
entitled to receive, in addition to his regular salary or compensation as a subordinate consular 
officer or employee, compensation equal to the difference between such salary or compensation 
and 50 per centum of the salary provided by law for the principal consular officer at such post. 
It is usual to give a vice-consul regular employment as a clerk in the consular office, in "which 
case he receives regular compensation at the rate of from $300 to Jpi.soo a year, according to the 
importance of the office and the nature of the work to be performed. For such appointments no 
examination is required, but to become eligible for promotion to the grade of consul a vice-consular 
officer must successfully pass the prescribed entrance examination.

CONSULAR AGENTS. 

A consular agent is an officer subordinate to a consul-general or consul, exercising similar 
powers at ports or places different from those at which the consulate-general or consulate is situated. 
He acts under the direction of his principal, and one half of the fees collected by him constitute his 
compensation, which may not exceed $1,000 in any one year. 

CONSULAR ASSISTANTS. 

There are forty consular assistants, who are appointed by the President and hold office 
during good behavior. They may be assigned, from time to time, to such consular offices and 
with such duties as the Secretary of State may direct. When so assigned they are subordinate to 
the principal officer at the post, and perform such clerical or other duties of the office as he may 
designate. They receive a salary of $1,000 a year for the first three years, and thereafter $200 a 
year additional each succeeding year until a maximum of $1,800 is reached. Candidates for the 
office of consular assistant must be over twenty-one years of age. Consular assistants are eligible 
for promotion to the grade of consul without further examination. 

CLERKS IN CONSULAR OFFICES. 

Clerks are employed at the various consular offices and receive compensation varying, as a 
rule, from $300 to $1,500 a year, beginning with their arrival and entrance upon duty at the con- 
sular office. Their duties embrace bookkeeping, letter writing, recording correspondence, and 
routine consular work. It is usually required that they be stenographers and typewriters and 
possess a knowledge of the language of the country where they are employed. They are frequently 
appointed upon nomination of a consul-general or consul, but the Department of State exercises 
its right to make independent appointments whenever that course appears to be in the interest 
of the service. Preference is given to American citizens for clerkships of all grades, and only 
such citizens will be considered for appointment to positions the compensation of which is $1,000 
a year or more. 

For such appointments no examination is required, but to become eligible for promotion to 
the grade of student interpreter, consular assistant, or consul a clerk in a consular office must 
successfully pass the prescribed entrance examination. 

Applications for clerical appointments should be filed with the Department of State. In view, 
however, of the fact that such appointments are frequently made upon the nomination of the prin- 
cipal officer under whom service is to be rendered, direct correspondence with the principal officer 
at the post in which the applicant particularly desires to serve is also advisable. 

STUDENT INTERPRETERS. 

Provision is made for ten student interpreters at the legation to China, six at the embassy to 
Japan, and ten at the embassy to Turkey. These officers receive annual salaries of $1,000 and 
allowances for tuition of $180 each in China and $125 each in Japan and Turkey, and are required 
to study the language of the country with a view of supplying interpreters to the American diplo- 
matic and consular offices in China, Japan, and Turkey. Upon receiving an appointment each 
student interpreter is required to sign an agreement to continue in the service as interpreter to the 
legations and consulates so long as his services may be required within a period of five years. 
After acquiring the language of the country, they may be assigned to duty in diplomatic or con- 
sular offices, and are eligible to promotion to the office of interpreter and to that of consul of class 
8 or 9. 

MARSHALS FOR CONSULAR COURTS. 

Marshals are provided for certain of the consular courts in China and at Constantinople, 
Turkey, where the American consuls are invested with judicial powers over American citizens. 
It is the duty of marshals to execute all process issued by the ambassador or minister of the 
United States, or by the consuls at the ports at wKich they reside, and to make due return thereof, 
and to perform the duties comprehended in the consular court regulations. They are also required 
to assist in the general work of the consulates. 



150 APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE CONSULAR SERVICE. 

COMPENSATION OF CONSULAR OFFICERS. 

All consular officers whose respective salaries exceed |i, 000 a year are prohibited from engag- 
ing in private business in the country in which they have their official residence, and the Depart- 
ment may extend this prohibition to any other consular officer or employee. Consular officers 
are required to account for all fees collected by them, and the salaries fixed by law or regulation 
constitute their sole and only compensation, except as specially provided in the case of consular 
agents, who are compensated, up to the limit of $1,000, by one-half of the fees collected by them. 

TRAVELING EXPENSES. 

Consuls-general, consuls, and student interpreters are entitled to additional compensation of 
five cents a mile when traveling under orders of the Secretary of State, and in going to and 
returning from their posts, except in connection with leaves of absence. Consular assistants are 
allowed actual and necessary traveling expenses, but no provision is made for traveling expenses 
of clerks in consular offices. 

EXAMINATIONS. 

As will be seen by reference to the foregoing regulations for promotion and examination, all 
candidates for the offices of consul of class 8 or 9, consular assistant, and student interpreter, and also 
candidates for the offices of vice consul and consular agent who may desire to become eligible for 
promotion are required to pass the prescribed examination. Candidates for the offices of vice con- 
sul and consular agent who do not desire to become eligible for promotion, and of clerk in a con- 
sular office, are not required to be examined.

Mr. A. M., Florence, Italy. Chicago, Dec. 17, igu. 

Sir: We are in receipt of your favor of the 14th inst., and regret very much our inability to 
reduce the prices that we quoted. We should be sorry if the price list furnished interfered in any 
way with our entering into business relations with your firm, with which we have long desired to 
cooperate. Your offers, however, are so much below prices current that we prefer to lose an order 
rather than to cut our profits below a paying basis. For two months past textiles have been look- 
ing up, and, in line with other manufacturers, we should rather raise than lower quotations. In 
fact, we have decided to revise our price list on January i, and prices will be, on an average, 5 per 
cent higher. We would advise you, therefore, to avail yourself of present favorable conditions by 
sending us an order at the prices quoted you, and we trust that you may see your way clear to do 
this. Awaiting your reply, \^e are. 

Your obedient servants, B. & C.

TERS IIV CHIIVA, JAPAIS, JLTUD TURKEY. 

1. Vacancies in the grade of student interpreter in China, Japan and Turkey shall be filled by 
the appointment of persons who have successfully passed the examination for student interpreter 
prescribed by the Executive Order of June 27, 1906.* 

2. After appointment, student interpreters will report for duty to the head of the mission to 
which they are to be attached in China, Japan or Turkey, as the case may be, upon receiving 
instructions to do so from the Secretary of State. 

3. After entering upon their duties at the mission, students will be expected to devote their 
time, under the supervision of the head of the mission and under the immediate direction of the 
language secretary thereof, to the study of the language of the country. Their retention in the 
service will depend upon their progress in mastering the language and upon their industry and 
good conduct. In order to determine their progress they will be examined quarterly by the 
language officer, a report of which examinations will be made annually to the chief of mission 
and be transmitted by him to the Secretary of State with his own report upon the general 
efficiency, adaptability, loyalty, good moral conduct and standing of each student. The substance 
of these reports will be entered upon the record of each student at the Department of State. 

4. In forwarding his first annual report upon each student at the end of one year after the 
student's arrival at the diplomatic mission, the chief of the mission will report to the Secretary of 
State whether in his opinion and that of the language officer of the mission the student has shown 
by progress in his studies and by his conduct and bearing that he possesses the qualifications 
indispensable for successful work as an interpreter. If his opinion should be unfavorable to the 
student, he will recommend, either that the student be assigned to some subordinate position, 
which, in his opinion, the student may be capable of filling, or that he be dropped from the service, 
and his report should be accompanied by the examination papers. 

5. Except as otherwise provided herein, students shall remain attached to missions for at least 
two years. Upon the completion of two years' study of the language of the country, they will be 
examined for the purpose of determining their eligibility for promotion to the grade of Interpreter 
by a board composed of the language officer and two qualified Americans designated by the chief 
of the mission. The examination shall be both oral and written and shall test the student's 
knowledge of moderately difficult written and spoken language of the country, together with the 
history, geography, commerce and institutions of the country and an elementary knowledge of 
such of the laws of the country as may pertain to the duties which they may ultimately be called 
upon to perform, either as interpreters or consular officers. Students in Turkey will also be 
examined in the French language. In order to pass the examination students must receive a 
rating of 80 on a scale of 100. A report of the result of the examination, accompanied by the 
papers in the written examination and a detailed report of the special qualifications, industry, 
moral conduct and dependableness of each student will be made by the head of the mission to 
the Secretary' of State for his consideration in determining the student's eligibility for promotion 
and for entry upon the efficiency records of the students. Inasmuch as in the interests of uni- 
formity in the three branches of the Student corps, it is necessary that the Department review the

examinations of the Students, no information as to the grades given by the Board of examiners 
or the recommendations by the head of the mission should be given the candidates except upon 
specific authorization from the Department. 

6. Students who successfully pass the foregoing examination, and whose efficiency records are 
in other respects satisfactory, may be given the rank of Interpreter, at a salary of |i,500 per 
annum; provided that there shall be not more than three Interpreters at this salary in Japan, seven 
in China, and five in Turkey. If at the completion of the first period of two years' study the 
student shall be unable to pass the prescribed examination, he shall be permitted, at the discretion 
of the chief of mission and language officer, to continue his studies at the mission for not more 
than one year longer. 

7. Two years after passing the foregoing examination, a second will be given, more difficult 
than the first but similar in scope, except that it shall include international and commercial law 
and an intimate knowledge of Consular Regulations and practice. Interpreters or students pass- 
ing the second examination with a rating of at least 80 may be promoted to be Interpreters with a 
salary of $1,650 per annum; provided, that there shall be not more than two such Interpreters in 
Japan, four in China and four in Turkey. Candidates who fail to pass this examination may be 
given an opportunity to appear for reexamination one year later. It is intended that success in 
this second examination shall indicate the student as qualified for the post of Assistant Japanese, 
Chinese, or Turkish Secretary at the diplomatic mission in Japan, China, or Turkey, as the case 
may be, or, if in China, of Assistant Assessor on the Mixed Court at Shanghai. 

8. Two years after the passage of the second examination, there will be given the final exami- 
nation, which will be more diflScult but of similar scope, with the additional requirement of a fair 
knowledge of common, criminal, and admiralty law and practice. On passing this examination, 
promotion may be made to be Interpreter, with a salary of |i,8oo per annum; provided, that in the 
service there shall be not more than two such Interpreters in Japan, three in China and two in 
Turkey. Such rank shall indicate the Interpreter as qualified for the grade of consul or for the 
post of Japanese, Chinese, or Turkish Secretary at the diplomatic mission, or, if in China, the 
Interpreters shall be eligible for promotion to the office of Assessor on the Mixed Court at Shanghai. 

g. All examinations will take place at the diplomatic mission in the country of which the 
students or interpreters are studying the language. In the event, however, that the exigencies of 
the service shall not permit the students or the interpreters to return to Tokyo, Peking, or Constan- 
tinople for the purpose of taking the required examinations, the Ambassador or Minister, as the 
case may be, after the preparation of the papers by the language officer, shall mail them in per- 
sonal and sealed envelopes to the consul in whose office the interpreter is serving, and said con- 
sular officer shall conduct the written examination in the same manner as if it were being held in 
Tokyo, Peking or Constantinople. 

10. Special examinations prior to the termination of the specified periods may be arranged for 
such students or interpreters as may submit with their applications evidence of such familiarity 
with the subjects prescribed as to justify the holding of a special examination. 

11. The chiefs of mission concerned will exercise a supervisory control over the movements 
of the student interpreters and interpreters and make such transfers, subject to the approval of the 
Secretary of State, as may be deemed advisable in order that the officers may receive the broaden- 
ing influence resulting from a knowledge of conditions at the various posts. Students attached to 
a mission may be required, at the discretion of the chief of mission, to perform some minor part 
of the official work of the mission, to the end that they may gain useful knowledge of the mode of 
transacting the routine business of the foreign service. It should be understood, however, that 
the students' first duty is to acquire the language and no other duties should be permitted to inter- 
fere with that object. 

12. Notwithstanding the requirement that students shall pursue their studies at the mission 
for at least two years after their appointment, the Secretary of State may at any time detach a 
student and assign him to other duty to meet an exigency of the service; but such special assign 
ment shall not relieve the student from the obligation to continue his study of the language and to 
sul)inii himself for examination in the language as elsewhere provided, unless expressly stated in 
the order assigning him to special duty. 

13. It is desired that student interpreters and interpreters shall not marry until they have been 
in the service for a period of at least four years. 



INTERPRETERS AND STUDENT INTERPRETERS. 1 57 

14. As soon as student interpreters shall have been promoted to the rank of Interpreter, they 
may be granted leave of absence for a period not to exceed sixty days (exclusive of transit time, 
when permission to visit the United States is expressly granted). The application for such leave 
of absence shall be made to the Secretary of State and must receive the approval of the officer 
under whom the Interpreter may be serving at the time. Subsequently to the first leave of absence, 
those provisions of the Consular Regulations which govern the granting of leaves of absence shall 
apply to the interpreter corps.

INFORMATION FOR APPLICANTS DESIRING APPOINTMENT TO THE STUDENT- 
INTERPRETER CORPS. 

The appointment of ten student interpreters to be attached to the legation to China, six to be 
attached to the embassy to Japan, and ten to be attached to the embassy to Turkey is provided for 
by law. 

Student interpreters are appointed to study the language of the country to which they are 
assigned for duty, that they may be qualified for appointment as interpreters to the diplomatic 
mission or consular offices in that country. 

The salary of student interpreters is fixed by law at $1,000 per annum. They are entitled to 
additional compensation of 5 cents a mile when traveling under orders of the Secretary of State, 
and in going to and returning from their posts, except in connection with leaves of absence. For 
each student's tuition there is an annual allowance of f 180 in China and f r25 in Japan and Turkey, 
while quarters for them are also provided at both Tokyo and Peking. 

Blank forms of application will be furnished by the Department of State upon request. 

Only citizens of the United States are appointed as student interpreters. 

The legal residence of a minor is regarded as that of his parent or guardian for the purposes 
of appointment as student interpreter. 

To aid the Board of Examiners in determining the physical condition of candidates, all candi- 
dates who have been designated to take the entrance examination are, at the time of the mental 
examination, given a rigid physical examination by a surgeon designated for that purpose. 

All foreign-service examinations are held in Washington, and usually last from three to five 
days, dependent upon the number of candidates to be examined. Traveling and other personal 
expenses in connection with the taking of the examinations must be borne by the candidates. 

Examinations are not held at regularly stated periods, but only at such times as it is deemed 
expedient to replenish the list of those eligible for appointment as student interpreter. The dates 
of the holding of examinations are publicly announced through the press. Announcements are 
not sent to all applicants, but only to those designated for examination. 

Although designations for examination are made by the President, applications for appoint- 
ment should be addressed to the Secretary of State. 

No one may be examined who is not especially designated. The letter of designation fur- 
nishes all information necessary as to date, place, etc., of examination. 

An application is considered as pending for a period of two years. After that period has 
elapsed without its being acted upon, another application with indorsements will be necessary to 
obtain for it further consideration. 

Applicants for appointment, in their correspondence with the Department, should always sign 
their names as given in their applications, without enlargement or contraction. The originals of 
all letters of endorsement listed in the application must be filed therewith, copies thereof not being 
acceptable. 

A candidate is not designated for examination with a view to his appointment to a particular 
country of the three where student interpreters are stationed, but in order to determine his eligi- 
bility for appointment to the country where, in the judgment of the Department, his services would 
best serve the public interests. 



1^8 COMMISSIONS, BOARDS, ETC. 

No special training is accepted in lieu of the prescribed examination, and no transfers are 
made to the student-inteipreter corps from other branches of the Government service without 
examination. The successful passing of the regular entrance examination is necessary for 
appointment. 

The Government does not maintain a school for the training of candidates for the foreign 
service; does not furnish a course of study, nor suggest a list of books to be studied. 

The Department is not able definitely to forecast when vacancies in the service may occur. 

For sample examination for the student interpreter corps see page 150.

XXXVIII. INTERIVATIOIVAL, TRIUUIVAL,S OF EGVPT. 

In 1876, as the result of negotiations between the Ottoman and Egyptian Governments and the 
various Christian powers having representatives at Cairo, certain courts were created in Egypt for 
the trial of civil and commercial causes arising between natives and foreigners of diiTerent nation- 
ality, as well as all questions of real estate between any person and suits of foreigners against 
the Egyptian Government and members of the Khedival family. These mixed tribunals, in civil 
matters within their exclusive jurisdiction, superseded the consular courts. A mixed tribunal con- 
sists of five judges, three of whom are foreigners and two natives. The foreign judges are 
appointed by the Khedive on the recommendation of the great powers, each of which is represented 
by from one to three judges. There are three tribunals of original jurisdiction (first instance), 
one each at Cairo, Alexandria, and Mansura, and a court of appeals at .Mexandria. The Lhiited 
States is represented in these courts by the following judges: 

Court of appeals. — Somerville P. Tuck, of New York (appointed 190S; appointed to court of
