XVin.— REGULATIONS CONCERNING PRECEDENCE OF DIPLOMATIC AGENTS. 

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 charges 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 superiority 
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 innovation 
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 charges 
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.

XX. REGULATIONS GOVERNING APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE DIPLOMATIC SERVICE AND 
FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE PERSONNEL OF THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE. 

EXECUTIVE ORDERS. 

Whereas, The Congress, by Section 1753 of the Revised Statutes of the United States, has provided 
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 



150 APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE DIPLOMATIC 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 Januar>^ i6th, 1883: — 

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 sho^\'n in the service, and 
that retention in the service may be conditioned upon the officers' maintaining a degree of efficiency 
well up to the average high standard which the interests of the service demand. 

Initial appointments from outside the service tp 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 tissigned 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 efficiency 
as shown in the service, and in order that the action of the department may be understood by the offi- 
cers concerned, all secretaryships in the Diplomatic Service shall be graded according to the impor- 
tance, volume, difficulty, or other aspects of the work done bj^ 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 sejjaration, 
be reinstated in the grade from which he was separated, provided he shall have been originally ap- 
pointed 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 applicable as regards rein- 
statements to the Consular Service and also to the Department of State when transfers shall have been 
to another branch of the foreign service. 

The Assistant Secretar>^ of State,* the Third Assistant Secretary of State, f 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 exam- 
ination to determine 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 desig- 
nated 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: inter- 
national law, diplomatic usage, and a knowledge of at least one modern language other than English, 
to wit, French, German, or Spanish; also the natural, industrial, and commercial resources and the 
commerce of the United States, especially with reference to the possibilities of increasing and extend- 
ing the trade of the United States with foreign countries; American history, government, and institu- 
tions; and the modem 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 infor- 
mation, and natural fitness for the service, including mental, moral, and physical qualifications, char- 
acter, 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. In tlie deter- 
mination of the final rating, the written and oral ratings shall be of equal weight. A physical examina- 
tion shall also be included as supplemental.

APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE DIPLOMATIC SERVICE. 15I 

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* 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 exam- 
ination, 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 specifically 
designated to take such subsequent examination. 

In designations for appointment subject to examination and in appointments after examination, 
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 appointment 
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 prescribed 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 examina- 
tion or in the appointment from the eligible list, but shall follow the course of procedure prescribed 
for all applicants for appointments 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 ma)^ be appointed, on the basis of ability and efficienc}^ 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 prepara- 
tion 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.

1^2 APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE DIPLOMATIC 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 
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 vSecretarj- of State. Blank forms of 
application may be had upon application to the Department 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 necessars* 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 jiart 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 service; 
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. 

For information concerning the appointment of clerks in diplomatic missions, see page 153. 



POSTS IN THE AMERICAN DIPLOMATIC SERVICE. 

Provision is made for the appointment of the following diplomatic officers:

GENERAL INFORMATION REGARDING SECRETARIES IN THE DIPLOMATIC SERVICE. 

Secretaries of embassy or legation are entrusted with the duty of transcribing the official commii- 
nications of the head of the mission and of recording the same in books to be carefully preserved 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 commimications, 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 



APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE DIPLOMATIC SERVICE. 1 53 

traveling on leave of absence. They are also allowed compensation at the rate of their salar>' 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 interim he is allowed, in addi- 
tion to his salar}^ as secretar\% the difference between such salary' and 50 per centum of the salary of the 
chief of the mission. 

The statutory leave of absence granted to diplomatic officers annually is sixty da^'s, 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 $1,000 to $1,800 a year. Their duties embrace bookkeeping, letter ■wTiting, 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 coimtr}' where they are employed. Under 
the law American citizens only may be appointed to clerkships in American diplomatic missions. 

No formal examination is required for appointment to a clerkship; the department, however, 
reserves the right to examine an applicant in any particular it may deem advisable. To become eligible 
for promotion to the grade of secretary of embassy or legation a clerk in a diplomatic mission must pass 
the prescribed entrance examination. 

Applications for clerical appointments should be addressed to the Secretary of State, and the blank 
form used may be obtained from the Department of State. 



SAMPLE EXAMINATION FOR THE DIPLOMATIC SERVICE. 

The following questions are furnished as suggestive of the character of those comprised in the 
examination^for the taking of which two days of six hours each are allowed : 

SUBJECT— INTERNATIONAL LAW. 

1. (a) State the origin and nature of international law and indicate the chief factors in its modern 
development. 

(b) What is the status of international law in American jurisprudence; i. e., is it regarded as a 
branch of municipal law or is it considered a foreign system? 

(c) State some of the leading writers in international law, enimierate some textbooks 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? 

(b) Napoleon III began a suit in the Supreme Court of the United States. Upon his dethronement 
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 States. The agents of the Con- 
federacy seek to enforce a lien on the cotton for their expenses. How, in your opinion, should the 
court decide? 

3. (o) 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 Venturesome drifted within the three-mile limit and was apprehended while taking the fish from 



154 APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE DIPLOMATIC SERVICE. 

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? 

(b) Suppose the vessel had begun fishing within the three-mile 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 lie driven at once to the State Department on important business for his Government. If con- 
sulted, what would you advise the diplomatic agent and the chauffeur as to their rights and duties 
in the premises. 

(6) 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 lease. \Vliat, 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 autliorities 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. 

(6) During the recent revolution in Constantinople one X, a member of the late Turkish Cabinet, 
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 embassy. Z, 
an opponent of the revolution, pursued by a mob, seeks refuge in the American embassy. Wliat 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 Ameri- 
can 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 bj- 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 declara- 
tion 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 executor}' and executed contracts. 

8. (a) Define contraband, state its divisions, and the penalty for its carriage if captured. 

(h) Define blockade and note the conditions under which a declaration is valid as binding upon 
neutrals. 

9. State the requirements of a valid capture of (a) enemy and (b) neutral property upon tlie high 
seas. State when title passes to captor in each case and the formalities requisite to give a perfect title 
to captured property. 

10. (a) Enumerate some of the more im])ortant recent international conferences and state some 
of their most important results. 

(b) Explain the distinction between "good offices," "mediation," and "arbitration." Cite some 
American instances of tu-bitration, and explain the attitude of the United States toward arbitration. 

(c) Give the general arbitration clause and explain why "independence, vital interests, and 
honor" are excluded from the obligation of arbitration provided for by recent treaties.

country in which he resides? 

2. Give your understanding of the difference between a charge d'affaires, a charge d'affaires ad 
interim, and a charge des affaires. 

3. A secretary of legation being in charge of the legation at the time of the arrival of a new minister, 
what part would the secretary of legation be called upon to take in the preliminaries preceding the 
minister's official reception? 

4. The immunity from the criminal and civil jurisdiction of the country of his sojourn, which the 
diplomatic representative possesses, is also accorded to the secretary of the legation. On what ground?

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

Department of State, 

Washington, August 12, IQOO. 

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 no 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 repre- 
sentatives, to which they are constrained by the highest considerations of national honor, except under 
an arrangement adeqxxate 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 tlie 
relief expedition shall be permitted to enter Peking unmolested and to escort the foreign ministers 
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 commanding the forces 
composing the relief expedition.

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 efficienc}' 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 in- 
quiries, 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 assist- 
ants t and of vice-consuls, consular agents, student interpreters and interpreters in the consular or 
diplomatic service, who shall have been appointed to such offices upon examination. 

* As amended by Executive orders of December 13, 1906, and April ao, 1907. 
t As amended by the Act approved May 21, 1908. 



158 APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE CONSULAR SERVICE. 

(b) By new appointments of candidates who have passed a satisfactory^ examination for appoint- 
ment as consul as hereafter provided. 

3. Persons in the service of the Department of State with salaries of two thousand dollars or upwards 
shall be eligible for promotion, 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. Th.e Secretar>' 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 Examiner of 
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 examinations 
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 modem 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 b^ 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. 

9. 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 certificate 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 Examiners, 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 fundamental 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 b}' him in the performance of all his 
official duties, his conduct, and his fitness for the consular service. 

II. fit shall be the duty of the Board of Examiners to formulate rules for and hold examinations 
of persons designated for appointment as consular assistant % 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 Ex- 
aminers, 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 piissing 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 examina- 
tion, 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.

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 vState, 
the limitation of one year for eligibility for reinstatement shall not hold. This rule shall be applicable 
as regards reinstatements to the consular service and also to the Departm.ent of State when transfers 
shall have been to anotlier branch of tlie foreign service. — From Executive order of November 26, igoQ. 



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 prepara- 
tion 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. 

1. The examinations will be the same for all grades and will be to determine a candidate's eligi- 
bility 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 likewise include American history, government, and institu- 
tions; political and commercial geography; arithmetic (as used in commercial statistics, tariff calcu- 
lations, exchange, accounts, etc.); the modem 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 supplemented 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 t 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 Executive 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, 1911. 
t As amended by the Act approved May 21, 1908. 



l6o APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE CONSULAR SERVICE. 

6. The names of candidates will remain on the eligible list for two years, except in the case of 
such ciindidates as shall within that period be appointed, or as shall withdraw their names, and of 
candidates holding stibordinate positions in the consular service, when eligibility shall not expire 
imtil apointment 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. Travel- 
ing and other personal expenses connected with the taking of examinations must be borne by the 
candidates. 

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 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 indorsements will be necessar)- to obtain 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 indorsements listed in the application must be filed therewith, copies thereof not 
being acceptable. Indorsements may not be withdrawn while a person remains an applicant, or 
while he is an officer or employee of the Department of State. 

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. A consul 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 siiggest 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 examination, 
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 con- 
sulates, 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 can- 
didate, in the language selected by him in his written examination, to test his ability to converse 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, 1911. 



APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE CONSULAR SERVICE. l6l 

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 subjects 
will be given on the first day, and the remaining subjects on the day following, probably in the order 
presented in the sample examination. 



GENERAL INFORMATION REGARDING CONSULAR OFFICERS. 

DUTIES OP CONSULAR OFFICERS. 

Consular officers are expected to endeavor to maintain and promote all the rightful interests of 
American citizens, and to protect them in all privileges provided for by treaty or conceded by usage; 
to visa and, when so authorized, to issue passports; when permitted by treaty, law, or usage, to take 
charge of and settle the personal estates of Americans who may die abroad without legal or other repre- 
sentatives, and remit the proceeds to the Treasury^ in case they are not called for by a legal representa- 
tive within one year; to ship, discharge, and, under certain conditions, maintain and send American 
seamen to the United States; to settle disputes between masters and seamen of American vessels; to in- 
vestigate charges of mutiny or insubordination on the high seas and send mutineers to the United States 
for trial; to render assistance in the case of wrecked or stranded American v^essels, and, in the absence 
of the master or other qualified person, take charge of the wrecks and cargoes if permitted to do so by 
the laws of the country; to receive the papers of American vessels arriving at foreign ports and deliver 
them after the discharge of tlie obligations of the vessels toward the members of their crews, and upon 
the production of clearances from the proper foreign port officials; to certify to the correctness of the 
valuation of merchandise exported to the United States where the shipment amounts to more than 
$ioo; to act as official witnesses to marriages of American citizens abroad; to aid in the enforcement of 
the immigration laws, and to certify to the correctness of the certificates issued by Chinese and other 
officials to Chinese persons coming to the United States; to protect the health of our seaports by report- 
ing weekly the sanitary and health conditions of the ports at which they reside, and by issuing to vessels 
clearing for the United States bills of health describing the condition of the ports, the vessels, crews, 
passengers, and cargoes; and to take depositions and perform other acts which notaries public in the 
United vStates 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 assist- 
ance 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 citizens 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, 

The office of vice consul is a subordinate office except during the absence from duty of the prin- 
cipal officer at the post, in which case the vice consulship becomes temporarily a substitute office. 
Vice consuls exercise and perform the duties of the consular offices to which they are attached, as stip- 
ulated in the Consular Regulations and laws of the United States, including the duties heretofore per- 
formed by deputy consular officers. These duties will be performed under the direction of the prin- 
cipal consular officer when he is at his post of duty, and when he is absent the vice consul will assume 
full charge of the office imder his bond. But a vice consul may be detailed by the Department for 
duty at a post in the district different from that at which the principal officer is stationed when the 
public interests so require. 

In the case of offices to which it is necessary to assign more than one vice consul, the Department 
determines the relative rank of the vice consuls so assigned and designates which one of them shall 
take charge of the office in the absence of the principal officer. 

Vice consuls receive no compensation as such when the principal officer is at his post of duty, but 
when the principal officer is temporarily absent or relieved from duty, the vice consul lawfully authorized 
to assume charge of the consular office shall be entitled to receive in addition to any salary or compen- 
53540—17 11

sation due him as a subordinate officer or employee an amount sufficient to make his compensation 
for the period he may be in charge of the office equal to fifty per centum of the salary of the principal 
officer for the period. In case no such officer shall at the time be so assigned, the additional compen- 
sation shall be computed on the basis of the salary of the principal officer last assigned to the post. A 
vice consul who receives no compensation as a subordinate officer or employee is entitled to compensation 
equal to fifty per centum of the salary of the principal officer assigned to the post for the period diuing 
which the vice consul shall be temporarily in charge of the post during the absence of the principal. 

CONSULAR AGENTS. 

A consular agent is an officer subordinate to a consul general or consul, exercising similar powers 
at a place different from that at which the consulate general or consulate is situated. He acts luider the 
direction of his principal, and one-half of the fees collected by him constitute his compensation, which 
may not exceed $i,ooo in any one year. Consular agents pay the rent of their offices, the Government 
furnishing them with forms, record books, stationery, etc., for official use. A consular agent may 
engage in private business in the country of his official residence. 

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 $i,ooo a year for the first three years, and thereafter $200 a year additional each succeeding 
year imtil 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 var>dng, as a rule, 
from $300 to $1,500 a year, beginning with their arrival and entrance upon duty at the consular 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 nomi- 
nation 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. American citizens 
only under fifty years of age are appointed to clerkships. 

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 pass the pre- 
scribed entrance examination. 

Applications for clerical appointments should be filed with the Department of State. 

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 diplomatic 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 dut}^ in diplomatic or consular offices, and are eligible to promotion to the 
office of interpreter and to that of consul of class 8 or 9. 

MARSH.'\LS 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 



APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE CONSULAR SERVICE. 1 63 

consuls at the posts at which 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. 

COMPENSATION OP CONSULAR OFFICERS. 

All consuls-general and consuls are prohibited from engaging in private business in the country in 
which they have their official residence, and the Department 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 becom.e eligible for 
promotion are required to pass the prescribed examination. Applicants for appointment as vice consul, 
consular agent, or clerk in the consular service are not required to be examined. Vice consuls, consular 
agents, and clerks can not, however, be promoted to the grade of consul without having first passed the 
prescribed examination.

Chicago, Dec. ly, igii. 
Mr. A. M., Florence, Italy. 

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 looking 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, we are, 

Your obedient servants,

1 68 INTERPRETERS AND STUDENT INTERPRETERS. 

XXII.— REGULATIONS GOVERNING INTERPRETERS AND STUDENT INTERPRETERS IN CHINA, JAPAN, AND 

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 pre- 
scribed 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 tlieir 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 exam- 
ined 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 countrj^ 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 exami- 
nation, 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 
uniformity 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 i 
authorization from the Dep£U-tment. 

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 $1,500 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 J 
intimate knowledge of Consular Regulations and practice. Interpreters or Students passing 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] 

* See p. 157 supra; see also Executive Order of Decemberjas, 1910,'p. 159. 



INTERPRETERS AND STUDENT INTERPRETERS. 1 69 

four in Turkey. Candidates who fail to pass this examination may be given an opportunity to appear 
for re-examination 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 diplo- ' 
matic 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 examina- 
tion, which will be more difficult but of similar scope, with the additional requirement of a fair knowl- 
edge of common, criminal, and admiralty law and practice. On passing this examination promotion 
may be made to be Interpreter, with a salary of $1,800 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 . 

9. 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 Constantinople 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 personal and sealed envelopes to 
the consul in whose office the Interpreter is serving, and said consular 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 Sec- 
retary of State, as may be deemed advisable in order that the officers may receive the broadening influ- 
ence 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 duty should be permitted to interfere 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 assignment shall not 
relieve the Student from the obligation to continiie his study of the language and to submit 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. 

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 permis- 
sion 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 Interpre- 
ter 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.

Department of State, 

February 28, 1913. 



I -JO INTERPRETERS AND STUDENT INTERPRETERS. 

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 coimtry to which they are assigned 
for duty, that they may be qualified for appointment as Interpreters to the diplomatic mission or con- 
sular offices in that country. 

The salary' of Student Interpreters is fixed by law at $i,ooo per annum. They receive a traveling 
allowance 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. For each Student's tuition 
there is an annual allowance of $i8o in China and $125 in Japan and Turkey, while quarters for them 
are also provided at both Tokyo and Peking. 

Only citizens of the United States, unmarried men, between the ages of nineteen and twent}^- 
six years are examined for appointment as Student Interpreters. 

The legal residence of a minor is regarded as that of his parent or guardian for the purposes of ap- 
pointment 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 exami- 
nation, given a rigid physical examination by medical officers designated for that purpose. 

These examinations are held 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 candidates. 

A general notice of examinations is given through the public press. Notice is not sent to all appli- 
cants, but only to those designated for examination. 

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

AJthough designations for examination are made by the President, applications for appointment 
should be addressed to the Secretary of State. 

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 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 tliereof 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 eligibility for appoint- 
ment to the country where, in the judgment of the Department, his services would best serve the ptiblic 
interests. 

No special training is accepted in lieu of the prescribed examination, and no transfers are made 
to the Student- Interpreter 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 recommend any particular institution; does not furnish a course of study, nor suggest a list 
of books to be studied. 

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

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 subjects 
will be given on the first day, and the remaining subjects on the day following, probably in the order 
presented in the sample examination. 

For sample examination for the Student- Interpreter Corps see page 163.
