CONSULAR SERVICE OF THE UNITED STATES. 



XIII. 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, 191 5, 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."
