ROYAL ORDINANCE.

[Translation.)

We, Frederick the Eighth, by God's grace King of Denmark, the Wends and Goths, Duke of Sleswick, Holstein, Stormarn, Ditmarsh, Lauenburg, and Oldenburg, make known that, inasmuch as it was decided in an exchange of notes between the Danish Government on the one hand and the Governments of England and the United States of America on the other that articles imported from Denmark into the said countries may enjoy the protection granted on the model there, it is our will hereby to order that the provisions contained under No. 4, last paragraph of law No. 107 of April 1, 1905, $ 11, to the effect that the protection granted on the model shall cease if the applicant for registration from abroad imports or allows to be imported articles manufactured after the same, shall not be applicable to articles imported from England or the l’nited States of America as long as the laws in force on the subject in those countries remain unchanged.

All whom it may concern shall be guided accordingly.

CONSULAR OFFICERS OF THE UNITED STATES CAN NOT RECEIVE

FOREIGN APPOINTMENTS.

The Acting Secretary of State to Minister Brun.

No. 624.]

DEPARTMENT OF STATE,

Washington, May 1, 1906. Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note of the 30th ultimo, in which you inquire whether this Government would have any objections to the appointment of Mr. Jesus L. Henriquez, vice-consul of the United States at Maracaibo, who is temporarily in charge of the Danish consulate, as the permanent consul of Denmark at that port, without salary.

In reply I have the honor to inform you that the Constitution provides that“ No person holding any office of profit or trust under them (the United States) shall, without the consent of Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title of any kind whatever from any king, prince, or foreign state.”'

Under this clause the department has always held that no one could be appointed to a position in the American consular service who is already holding office under some other government, and that acceptance of office from another government vacated the appointment of this Government.

Therefore, if Mr. Henriquez accepted appointment as Danish consul, it would be necessary for this Government to appoint another vice-consul at Maracaibo. Accept, etc.,

ROBERT BACON.

fternoon of the 23d I was informed by the minister of for-
- that Governor Perez had ordered the arrest of the Hora-
nandante de Puerto, who had resisted and been shot; that
nment had thereupon adopted a decree removing Perez, but
chim every opportunity to comply before proceeding forci-

it into effect.
pon telegraphed you as follows:

SANTO DOMINGO, December 23, 1.90.5. ninican Government informs me governor of Puerto Plata since this **rricaded in citadel and arresting Horacistas, causing general alarm. minican Government thereupon named his successor; resistance feared. inican Government intends act with caution and legally.

Dawson. vad news was confirmed early the next morning by the followgram from the consul at Puerto Plata :

PUERTO PLATA, December 23, 1905. N MINISTER, Santo Domingo: in of Port Miguel Ramirez was shot and wounded at noon resisting f arrest from governor. Government position apparently strong. An. further trouble.

HANDLEY, was followed shortly by this:

PUERTO PLATA, December 23, 1905. CAN CONSUL, Santo Domingo: ess President will direct governor to comply with order of minister inte() vacate in favor of ('occo, trouble will ensue. ('an you advise President id order?

HANDLEY. sent for the minister of foreign affairs and asked him if the ee removing Perez had been adopted. He answered in the affirme, saying that not only had the official order signed by the min'r of interior been telegraphed, but that Morales himself had also graphed over his own signature. He added that no doubt Perez is urging Morales to break with the cabinet and that, hoping to t personal and secret orders to ignore the official telegrams, he ight believe that the President's signature had been placed to the legram without his consent. I thereupon showed the minister the jessages I had received from the consul and told him I proposed, n the interest of peace, at Puerto Plata to transmit to the consul a opy of any telegram which President Morales might inform me he had already sent, and to grant Perez temporary asylum if he should want it. The latter measure would, of course, tend to facilitate the peaceful transfer of the governorship, and the minister said that he and the President would be pleased if I should take it.

Accordingly I addressed a note to President Morales asking him to be kind enough to send me a copy of the telegram, if, in fact, he had sent one. Later in the afternoon I received the copy in question and thereelegraphed the consul as follows:

SANTO DOMINGO, December 21, 1905. Y CONSUL, Puerto Plata: ont informs me he sent following telegram : Gobernador. Entregue 1 Cocco conforme telegramma anterior. Morales.” ez wishes asylum you may give it. Government will not object. Keep med.
