1687. II. RELATING TO THE SECOND ARTICLE OF THE TREATY. 1. It is expressly agreed that a person who, under the first article, is be held as an adopted citizen of the other state, on his return to his iginal country cannot be made punishable for the act of emigration elf, not even though at a later day he should have lost his adopted tizenship.

1688. III. RELATING TO THE FOURTH ARTICLE OF THE TREATY.

1. It is agreed on both sides that the regulative powers granted to the wo Governments, respectively, by their laws for protection against resient aliens, whose residence endangers peace and order in the land, are ot affected by the treaty. In particular the regulation contained in the econd clause of the tenth article of the Bavarian military law of the 30th f January, 1868, according to which Bavarians emigrating from Bavaria before the fulfillment of their military duty cannot be admitted to a pernanent residence in the land till they shall have become 32 years old, is not affected by the treaty. But yet it is established and agreed that, by he expression “permanent residence" used in the said article, the abovelescribed emigrants are not forbidden to undertake a journey to Bavaria for a less period of time and for definite purposes, and the royal Bavarian Government moreover cheerfully declares itself ready, in all cases in which the emigration has plainly taken place in good faith, to allow a mild rule in practice to be adopted.

2. It is hereby agreed that when a Bavarian naturalized in America, and, reciprocally, an American naturalized in Bavaria, takes up his abode once more in his original country without the intention of return to the country of his adoption, he does by no means thereby recover his former citizenship; on the contrary, in so far as it relates to Bavaria, it depends on His Majesty the King, whether he will or will not in that event grant the Bavarian citizenship anew.

The article fourth shall accordingly have only this meaning, that the adopted country of the emigrant cannot prevent him from acquiring once more his former citizenship; but not that the state to which the emigrant originally belonged is bound to restore him at once to his original relation.

On the contrary, the citizen naturalized abroad must first apply to be received back into his original country in the manner prescribed by its laws and regulations, and must acquire citizenship anew, exactly like any other alien.

But yet it is left to his own free choice, whether he will adopt that course or will preserve the citizenship of the country of his adoption.
