ARTICLE IX. All articles seized which are in the possession of the person to be surrendered at the time of his apprehension, whether being the proceeds of the crime or offense charged, or being material as evidence in making proof of the crimo or offense, shall, so far as practicable and in conformity with the laws of the respective countries, be given up when the ext adition takes place. Nevertheless, the rights of third parties with regard to such articles shall be duly respected.
