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

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

Sec. 8. That all fees, official or unofficial, received by any officer in the consular service for 
services 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 reorganization and improvement of the Foreign Service of the United States, 
approved May 24, 1924, amends the act of April 5, 1906, as follows: 

Sec. 11. That the provisions of sections 8 and 10 of the act of April 5, 1906, relative to 
official fees and the method of accounting therefor shall include both branches of the Foreign 
Service. 

The act for the reorganization and improvement of the Foreign Service of the United States 
approved May 24, 1924, amends section 1685 of the Revised Statutes as amended by the act 
entitled "An act for the improvement of the Foreign Service, approved February 5, 1915," to 
read as follows: 

Sec. 1685. That for such time as any Foreign Service officer shall be lawfully authorized 
to act as charge d'affaires ad interim or 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 assigned, he 
shall, if his salary is less than one-half that of such principal officer, receive in addition to his 
salary as Foreign Service officer compensation equal to the difference between such salary and 
one-half of the salary provided by law for the ambassador, minister, or principal consular officer 
as the case may be.
