Washington, April 1. Baron Fnva,
tho Italian minister, has been recalled
from tho United States by his govern
ment on account of dissatisfaction in
connection with the New Orlenns affair.
Baron Fnva called at tho state depart
ment yesterdny and withdrew his pass
port and other papers. Tho affairs of
tho Italian legation are now temporarily
in charge of Marquis Imperial!, who has
authority to trnnsact current business
only. In his note to Secretary Blaine,
Baron Fava informs tho bccrctnry that
tho United States government lins not
given assurances that the murderers of
tho Italian subjects acquitted by Ameri
can magistrates and murdered in prison
whilo under tho immediate protection of
tno authorities of Now Orleans would bo
brought to justice, tho Italian govern
ment has found itself under tho very
painful necessity of showing openly its
dissatisfaction by recalling the minister
of his majesty, King Humliert, from a
country whoro the Italian representative
is nnablo to obtain justice.
I'ava to Leave for Italy.
Baron Fava will leave for Italy In a
short timo. During his absence tho le
gation will bo in charge of tho secretary
of legation, :ffvquis Imperiuli, but tho
latter will not havo tho authority of
a minister. Ho will havo charge of cur
rent routino matters only. Tho recall
of Baron Fava puts an end to any fur
ther direct communication letween tho
representative of Italy in this county
and Secretary Blaine. Hereafter the
state department will be obliged to com
municato directly with tho Italian gov
ernment nt Rome.
No confirmation of tho report that
eighteen American citizens havo been
arrested at Rome and held ns hostage?
can Ik obtained nt tho state department.
Assistant Secretary Adeo said that so
far as ho was advised, only two Amer
ican citizens had been arrested in Italy
within the last threo months. Ono of
these had lieen released, and tho other
was arrested some time prior to the Now

AN ISSUE OF IMPORTANCE.
Ilaron I'utn to bo alien ills Passport at
Washinoton, April 1. Secretary
Blaino will muko an official announce
ment of Baron Fnva's lecall, possibly
containing tho ultimatum of this gov
ernment, but in tho meantime tho baron's
pleasant personal relations with tho state
department nnd this country will havo
been severed. Tho baron's passport, of
coureo, will bo given to him nt onco.
Tlio situation is so new nnd terious that
no official comments can bo obtained
from any source. There must bo timo
for the administration to think, and it
has as yet had littlo or no opportunity
to digest tho facts in a calm manner. It
is doubtful whether, in view of tho ex
traordinary circumstances of tho recnll,
there will bo the formalities at tho
White House usual upon such nn oc
casion as tho departuro of n minister.
Indeed, when this affair is looked nt
from a distance of timo it will appear to
havo been very much hurried.
Tho letter from Governor Nicolls to
Secrotary Blaino caused the trouble. It
was received soveral days ago and a copy
was sent nt onco to Baron Fava. Tin?,
of course, gave it tho nppearanco of
being tho ultimatum of this govern
ment, una it npienrs that tho baron
accepted it as such and cabled it in that
character to his government.
Baron Fava has worked for his homo
interests to tho degree of appearing over
zealous nt this end of tho lino, but later
developments would indicate that thero
could not have been too much zeal on
his part to suit his government, which
nppenre to have mado tho matter an is
suo of tho highest importance Thoso
commenting on tho hurprising evont of
tho day agreo that to break away from
this government is not merely an act of
discourtesy, but of open hostility. To
have dono it pending tho investigations
nnd progress of tho law in Now Orleans
is significant, it is said, of an utter dis
regard of tho conventionalities and eth
ics of modem diplomacy. Indeed, in
that light, this government now has log
ical reason for feeling nlrronted at this
lack of faith in its assurances on tho
port of its hot-headed neighbor.
