XIV. DISPOSITION OF FEES AND COMPENSATION OF CONSULAR AGENTS AND VICE CONSULS. 

The act for the reorganization of the consular service of the United States, approved April 5, 1906, 
provides: 

"Sec. 8. That all fees, official or unofficial, received by any officer in the consular service for serv- 
ices rendered in connection with the duties of his office or as a consular officer, including fees for notarial 
services, and fees for taking depositions, executing commissions or letters rogatory, settling estates, 
receiving or paying out moneys, caring for or disposing of property, shall be accounted for and paid 
into the Treasury of the United States, and the sole and only compensation 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." 

The act for the improvement of the foreign service approved February 5, 1915, amends section 
1685 of the Revised Statutes to read as follows: 

"* * * for such time as any vice consul shall be 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 fifty per centum of the salary provided by law for the principal con- 
sular officer at such post."

XVllI.— 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 tlie 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. REGUUTIONS 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 
into which he seeks to enter; and for this purpose he may employ suitable persons to conduct such 



APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE DIPLOMATIC SERVICE. 1 57 

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, 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-wn 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 to secretaryships in the Diplomatic Sersnce shall 
be only to the Classes of Third Secretary of Embass3% or, in case of higher existent vacancies, of Second 
Secretar}^ 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 efficienc}' 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 secretar\'ships in the Diplomatic Service shall be graded according to the impor- 
tance, 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 delinquencj- 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 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 Secretary' of State,* the Third Assistant Secretary of State, t the vSolicitor 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. 

* As amended by the Executive order of April 11, 1916. 

t As amended by the Executive order of September 17, 1913. 



158 APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE DIPLOMATIC SERVICE.

not been speciallj^ designated by the President for appointment to the diplomatic service subject to

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 tlie eligible list for two years will be dropped therefrom and the ctmdidates 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 may be appointed, on the basis of ability and efficiency, 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.

INFORMATION FOR APPLICANTS DESIRING APPOINTMENT TO SECRETARYSHIPS 

IN THE DIPLOMATIC SERVICE. 

Diplomatic Service examinations are held usually once a year. 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 announced through the public press. Notice is not sent to ail 
applicants, but only to those designated for examination. 

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

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 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. 

Originals of all indorsements listed in the application must be filed therewith, copies thereof not 
being accepta.ble. Indorsements may not be withdra^^^^ 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 four. A 
secretary may be assigned to any post, where, in the judgment of the Department, his services will 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. 

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

The only sample examination furnished to applicants is the one printed on the following page. 

Appointments of secretaries are made only after a rigid physical examination of candidates. 

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 converse in that language. 
He may also present in his oral examination any other languages with which he may be familiar. 

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 two subjects 
are given on the first day, and the remaining subjects on the day following, probably in the order pre- 
sented in the sample examination.

GENERAL INFORMATION REGARDING SECRETARIES IN THE DIPLOMATIC SERVICE. 

Secretaries of embassy or legation are entrusted with the dutj- of transcribing the official commu- 
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 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 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 secretary, the difference between such salary and 50 per centum of the salar>- of the 
chief of the mission. 

The statutory leave of absence granted to diplomatic oificers annually is sixty days, but it rests 
with the Department to determine whether the leave may be granted. WTien leave of absence witli 
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 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. 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 comJDrised 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? 



APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE DIPI^OMATIC SERVICE. l6l 

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

(6) 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. (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 Ve>itureso7ne began fishing 
Sunday morning beyond the three-mile limit, but after the nets had been laid and the fish surrounded 
the Veniuresotne 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? 

(6) Suppose the vessel had begim fishing within the three-mile limit, and noticing the approach 
of a revenue cutter put to sea. The cutter followed, captiured the Venturesome upon the high seas, 
brought it to port, and began condemnation proceedings. Wliat, 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 con- 
sulted, what would you advise the diplomatic agent and the chauffeur as to their rights and duties 
in the premises. 

(b) 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. WTiat, in your 
opinion, should be the result? Would it make any difference in 5'our 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. 

(b) 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. WTiat should 
be the actio, yi 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 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 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 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 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 the^r 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 ministers 
and residents back to Tientsin; this movement being provided for and secured by such arrangemients 
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 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 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 tlie act entitled "An act to provide for the reorganization of the consular service of the United 



APPOINTMENTS AND PROMOTIONS IN THE CONSUI.AR SERVICE, 165 

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: —

(a)* By promotion on the basis of ability and efficiency as shown in the service, of consular assist-

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

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

may deem it expedient to fill, the Secretary of State shall inform the Board of Examiners, who shall

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 tlie common

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

aminers, but it shall include the same subjects hereinbefore prescribed for the examination of consuls. 
Any vice ccmsul 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 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
