ty five i-euts per delegate as annual dues
from the same; by collections to be taken by
each chartered society on the 31st or Marcb,
or on its regular meeting nearest to said
date in eaih year, and to receive dona
tions, contributions and bequests."
The convention then began the considera
tion of Us by-laws. No important changes
were made, as only correction of verblago
and the finishing up of Incomplete rules
A proposition to pay the actual expenses

At the afternoon session the special com

of this city, who quoted rrom many prom
inent writers both in this country and

1RBIVIL Of THE WALLERS
Ex-Consul's Wife and Children
Again in America,
HER STOEY OF THEIE WEONGS
Instats That Her If unhand WasDenled
a Fair Trial and Declares That Cod
muI Wetter "Wun In Collusion with
tho French Groxuly Iuanlted by
French Soldiers on Their Voyujje.
New York. Oct. 17. Mrs. John L. Wal
ler, wife" of the former United States con
sul to Madagascar, arrived In this city
this morning on the Dutch steamer Am
sterdam. She was accompanied by her three
daughters and her young son. Bhe was
met at Uie pier In Huboken by her adviser,
E. G. Woodford, and crossed the river on
a tug, after which Ehe went at once to
the Clarendon HotcL
When seen there by a reporter she said
Uiat she could add but little to the re
ports id ready mode public of her hus
band's confinement In the prison at Mar
seilles. "There Is one thing I would like to say,
however," said Mrs. Waller. "Ambassa
dor Eustls has been harshly criticised for
not aiding us as much as be might have
done. There Is no truth In that report.
"Mr. Eustls did everything in his power
for us. Up Is even now treating my-lius-band
with tbe utmost consideration. The
whole trouble lay "with Robert Campbell,
my husband's predecessor.
CIIAUGE AGAINST HIM.
"Mr. Waller waa arrested," she contin
ued, "at Tamatave, Madagascar, March 6,
1803. by the French autborltieson a charge
of having conducted a clandestine corres
pondence with theenemy, the Hovas."
It appears, according to Mrs. Waller's
story, (bat on September D, while at the
house of a Hova acquaintance. Mr. Waller
had promised to procure four or five re
volvers for the son of his gncst, who, as
Mr. Waller was preparing to take a trio to
this country, had requested blm to purchase
the weapons for him.
At the triaal of Waller these revolvers
played an unfortunate part for him, as
tbe French authorities Insisted that they
were simply samples or an Inteuded ship
ment of arms to the Hovas. After his
arrest Mr. Waller was conrined lu a China
man's shop at Tamatave, and on March 18
he was tried by court martial.
There were two counts to his Indictment
violating "Order 3," In sending letters
from Tamatave. which was In a state of
siege, without their having been scrutinized
by the authorlties.and attcmpUng to convey
information lo the enemy.
Capt. Lcvlsolt and six lieutenants com
posed the court. Waller had repeatedly
asked for counsel, but was allowed none
until twenty-four hours before the trial,
when L. Jeriaud took his case; bat as soon
as ho had read the letters Waller had
written to Mrs. Waller the lawyer threw
up the case.
The reason for this, Mrs. Waller says,
was that In one of them Waller had written
in condemnatory rau ot certain acts of
Consul Wetter, his successor.
CALLED THEM SPIES.
In his letters to his wife Waller had
told ot outrages and thefts committed by
the French, and had referred to two per
sons by (he letters "D" and "P," whom
he declared to be Frenth spies.
Waller bad also sent letters Inclosed to
George Tcssier and a young Hova named I
Ratsimandresy, but these contained noth
ing but references to business matters.
Previous to the trial Waller was exam
ined through a French interpreter, and
made to sign a paper written In French,
a language he did not understand. The
court-martial appointed a clerk named
Gcrrlck as counsel for" Waller, but he
was allowed to 'make practically no de
fense. The trial and drawing up of the -sentence
occupied three hours and twenty five
minutes. Waller was condemned to twenty
years in prison, and an appeal to a higher
court was denied him. He was taken to
the prison at Clarvcaux, In tbe south of
France, March 24 last.
Mrs. Waller says that If Mr. Waller
bad not been detained at Tamatave by
Consul Wetter, who unwarrantedly ques
tioned some f her husband's official acts.
Waller would not have been arrested. In
fact, she said, public opinion at Tamatave
was to the effect that Consul Wetter was in
collusion with the French authorities.
After "Waller's conviction an order ex
pelling his stepson, PaulH. Bray, to Zanzibar
was carried out, he being forcibly taken to
that place on the same steamer which con
Woodford took Mrs.Wallcrand her children
as far as MauriUus. whresheasked assist
ance of Consul Campbell to enable her to
reach Uie United States.
The consul told her, she says, that the
United Stales made no such provision for
such purposes. Then she went to the
governor, who said he would help her if
