The Haytian Affair — Question cf
Separation of Church and State.
(Special to The New-York Tribune by Trench Cable.)

Paris. Jure 35.— perfect understanding exists
between the Cabinets at Paris and Washington
in regard to the satisfaction the French govern
ment requires from Kaytl for the assault at Port
au-Prince upon the French Minister. The French
demand* are limited to a formal apology by
Haytl and the dismissal of the officer in com
mand of the soldiers guilty of pelting the French
Minister and his wife with stones. It Is not
known here what measures Germany will exact
frcm Hayti for a similar assault upon the Ger
man Minister, but so far as France is concerned
the Port-au-Prince Incident will not raise any
question of the Monroe Doctrine, which la un
derstood by M. Deleft*** and General Porter aa

NO [iEMAND ON MOROCCO.
Perdicaris Case Closed so Far as the
United States I,* Concerned.
Washington, Jur.e 25. — The State Department
does not contemplate making- any demands on
the Moorish government on account of the Per
dloaris Incident. In its view that government
hn.s suffered severely, both rom a Gnancial
point of view and in national humiliation.
through its compliance with the demand of Sec
cretar lla.y that the captives be released, and
as it appears by aJI accounts, including that of
Perriicnris himself, as slated in his letters, that
h* did not guiler undue hardship, that he was
treated with kindness and consideration by Rai
suli. and that he has no ill feeling toward that,
to him, agreeable bandit, no sufficient reason
exists why any further demands should be made
on the Sultan of Morocco either for indemnity
or the punishment of the kidnappers. If the
Sultan chooses to take vengeance on Raisuli. that
Is his own affair, it is said here, for It is under
stood that, complying with the strict injunc
tion of the State Department, neither Admiral
Chadwidt nor Cong':. General Gummere has In
any way given the guarantee of this government
that immunity shall be extended to Raisuli.
The release and safe return to Tangier of
Perdicaris and Varley emphasize the good work
accomplished by the American Vice-Consul Gen
eral, Hoffman Philip. Mr. Philip, at the time of
the abduction, had gone from Tangier to Fez on
a shooting expedition. lie was accompanied by
the Belgian Minister. He received instructions
a: Fez to deal directly with the Sultan of Mo
rocco. He presented to the Sultan in person the
demand* of the United States government, and
assurances have been received that the Sultan
not only acquiesced In the demands, but did all
that lay in his power to facilitate the release of
the captives. In the negotiations Mr. Philip
whs ordered back to Tangier. He made the trip,
which ordinarily occupies ten or twelve days, in
four days, receiving an order on arriving at the
outskirts of Tangier to return to Fez. His in
structions then were to remain il Fez until the
release of Perdicaris and Varley. His reports
Indicate that the Sultan, with whom he per
sonally conducted the negotiations for the re
lease of tne captives, is a reasonable and in
many respects a fine man and an efficient ruler.
RELEASE DIE TO FRANCE.
Recognition of Efforts in Pcrdicaris
Paris, June 25. — The American officials here
are hopeful that the Washington government
will take steps to recognize the good orKces of
France leading up to the release of Messrs.
ferdicaria and Varley. Official dispatches from
Tangier show that the diplomatic tiara which
the Foreijrn Minister. M. Delcasse. Bet In motion
were responsible for the final liberation of the
prisoners. These plans lid not contemplate
threats or the use of force, but appealed to the
powerful influence of the -■••- ■■..- All

earnest desire to acquiesce in the American re

French efforts should have suitable recognition.
The Halaull incident is goir.jf to have an im

policy toward Morocco. It Li learned that defi

Geneva, to take up the organization of ■'■" M>

The recent French loan to Morocco is guaran

fair Kc-bert Hart over the Chinese customs ad
ministration. When the ports are regulated the
next step will be the organization of French
gendarmerie at Tangier. The plans for this tar
eign police force are already formulated.
The foregoing three steps, namely, the loan,
control of the customs and control of the police.
are the direct outgrowth of the energetic action
of the United Slates in the Raiauli incident, as
It demonstrates tne necessity for Franco to
adopt energetic measures to enforce French au
thority over Morocco.

guished appearance, wears Bowing white robes,
and is attended by a retinue of fourteen ser
vitors. A Foreign Office carriage conveyed the
official to the Elysee Palace.
In the course of an interview El Menebhl ex
pressed the keenest satisfaction at the release of
Messrs. Perdlcarls and Varley, and aaid it would
strengthen the Sultan. He also approved of
the Frar.co-British treaty relative to Morocco.
