Sec. 258. Commitment and discharge

-STATUTE-

If, on such examination, it is made to appear that the person so

arrested is a citizen of the United States, he shall be forthwith

discharged from arrest, and shall be left to the ordinary course of

law. But if this is not made to appear, and such court, judge, or

magistrate judge finds, upon the papers referred to in section 257

of this title, a sufficient prima facie case that the matter

concerns only the internal order and discipline of such foreign

vessel, or whether in its nature civil or criminal, does not affect

directly the execution of the laws of the United States, or the

rights and duties of any citizen of the United States, he shall

forthwith, by his warrant, commit such person to prison, where

prisoners under sentence of a court of the United States may be

lawfully committed, or, in his discretion, to the master or chief

officer of such foreign vessel, to be subject to the lawful orders,

control, and discipline of such master or chief officer, and to the

jurisdiction of the consular or commercial authority of the nation

to which such vessel belongs, to the exclusion of any authority or

jurisdiction in the premises of the United States or any State

thereof. No person shall be detained more than two months after his

arrest, but at the end of that time shall be set at liberty and

shall not again be arrested for the same cause. The expenses of the

arrest and the detention of the person so arrested shall be paid by

the consular officers making the application: Provided, That

nothing in this section or section 257 of this title shall

authorize the arrest or imprisonment of officers and seamen

deserting or charged with desertion from merchant vessels of

foreign nations in the United States and Territories and

possessions thereof, and the cooperation, aid, and protection of

competent legal authorities in effecting such arrest or

imprisonment.

such differences as may arise between the captains and crews of the

vessels belonging to the nation whose interests are committed to

his charge, application for the exercise of such power being first

made to such court or magistrate judge, by petition of such consul,

vice consul, or commercial agent. And said courts and magistrate

judges may issue all proper remedial process, mesne and final, to

carry into full effect such award, arbitration, or decree, and to

enforce obedience thereto by imprisonment in the jail or other

place of confinement in the district in which the United States may

lawfully imprison any person arrested under the authority of the

with, or the parties are otherwise discharged therefrom, by the

agent, or his successor in office, or by the authority of the

foreign government appointing such consul, vice consul, or

commercial agent. The expenses of the said imprisonment and

consul, or commercial agent requiring such imprisonment. The

marshals of the United States shall serve all such process, and do
