BELIEVERS IN POLYGAMY
Six Mohammedans to Be Deported
Because of Their Religion.
A i rived Four Buys Ago If. Not

"Will He Made.
New rorfc.Nov. IS Tlie detention atthe
barge office of six Mohammedans, because
of their belldf in polygamy and tlie an
nouncement that they will be sent back to
Turkey, will probably lead to an appeal
of their caws to Commissioner or Innui
gratioa l'owderly, at Washington.
A Times reporter was informed today at
the Turkish consulate that the action of
the board of special inquiry, on Wednes
day, wuld be investigated, and that if it
were found that this was the cause of
the deportation an appeal to Washington
would certainly be made.
fc'ecii a stop on the part or the Turkish
ropnvrniauves in this country will not be
unwe'conie to tlie Immigration authorities
in this city, as tills is said to be the first
instance of theenforcementof the Immigra

Ilclals at the barge office prerer that this
should be made a test case, In order lti.it a
line uf action for tlie future may be clearly
The basis for the appeal will be that

him a believer in polygamy, tlsjs does

They expected to go to Toledo, Ohio, and
find employment In that vicinity on Turnis.
They were asked if they believed Ju the
Koran, nnd, with pride, they drew them
selves up one and all, and announced that
They were In the laud of "unbelieving
dogs," and they would not fot.swe.ir their
faith. But their religious fervor, mixed
tip "with their ignorance of ai,y immigra

"Ana do you believe In the Surah of the
law, wheie the Prophet tells the faithful
they may nmrrj by twos or threes, or
tours?" he asked the newcomers, and they
said they did most surely and with much
faith: and the Christian unbeliever told
them they might not come ashore.
Mr. Arbely stated the cabe to the board
of fpeclal inquiry today and they uphehl
him in his views, ordeiing that the Syrians
be deported. They took the view with the
Armenian Inspector, that a reliance in
the leligious tenet of polygamy was a
polygamlst in the eyes of the United States
immigration laws, even though the be

In speaking of the case later Mr. Arbely
said. 'We should remember that now there

The news received by the Stato De

prisoners had been pardoned by the. Queen
of Spain, and would e,oon return to this
country, wus gladly received by all Amerl
cans who have watched the cases since
the tveu were first captured and thrown
into a Spanish dungeon. To none was
the news more Interesting than Senator
Morgan of Alabama, Jiiember of the Com
mittee on Foreign Relatione, and possibly
the comments of no man in Washington
on this case arc more pertinent than thoso
of the Senator, who has proved himself
to be such a stanch American and so
persistent a friend ot Cuba. Ho was first
told of the release ot the men by The

Senator, "hut there Info been no reason why

"The idva uf these men being required

her contention with respect to the Cubnn

Declining to recosft4.-hese-.m,en tljen

liuo a military prisou. Right there Is
where this Government shpuld have taken
a Tirm stand and speedily brought the
incident to a close. Had We notified Spain
that In our Judgment a state ot warexistcd

would nob have had this long diplomatic

"The political effect' of this act of the
Queen will be a longer delay in acting in ac
cordance with the wlnhes or this Govern
ment. Spain will point to her generosity
in this ntattei ai.d to her alleged efforts t
meet the v, n-ues of this Government as a
reason why sueshould not be pushed b y the
American Government. She has the sub
ject in a good position" for dragging, and
Spanish statesmen can be counted upon
to drag it for as long a period as possi
ble. "I am willing to give the Administration
credit for everything it has done, and I
am not ready to say that it will not it wne
time act In accordance with the American
spirit in dealing with the Cuban question.
President McKinley negotiated the treaty of
annexation with Hawaii promptly, without
first being urged to do so by the people
who wished it done. Reacted atonceon this
great question, and did the right thing in
good time, nnd I have no reason and xk
right to assume that he will not do so
with respect to Cuba.
"At the same time, I cannot but see
that in the Spanish minister we have a
diplomat who is exceedingly shrewd and
who appears to be getting the best of
it in everything hn undertakes at our State
Department. He is trained in diplomacy,
and understands the art of putting tlus
best ot his co.se forward. Knowing, is
we do, the hopelessness and desperate
character of the cause he represents, even
thoe opposed to him are compelled to
admit the abilitj he has so far displayed.
He it is who has made It appear that
Spain has done the magnanimous thing
by "pardoning" the Competitor crew. Min

make the most out of this incident, and I
fear there are thoe who may be misled

Touching uj,on the subject of the corre
spon lence that has passed between the two
governments. Senator Morgan said there
was no doubt but that it would be promptly
asked for when theSenate met, but whether
it would be forthcoming was a question not
so easily answered.
"It looks," continued-the Senator, "as
if the Administration did not care to hav.
the actual facts concerning the situation
in Cuba nnd the coirespondenee between
the two governments reach the public. It
Is not a violent assumption to suppose that
Consul General Lee Is retained at Havana
in order t keep him under the bond of
official secrecy. The same may be said
of Consul Baker. The, office of consul
general is tocgood aposllion to be retained
by a Demociat under a Republican ad
ministration imless.there are some powei
ful reasons behind his retention."
Senator Morgan knows of his own
knowledge that Gen Lee has told the
State Department facts that would fill
the world with horror were they to see
the ligut of day, and his Inference is that
it is to suppress, the revelation of these
facts to the publfc that Gen. Lee' is not

"After both parties confer with their

the proposed reciprocal trade relations will

I can add nothing new to my statement
at Washington, whea I said the American
taiift presses too hard on us in respect
to duties on our lumber, coal, and fish
exports, and I think that when the United

Canada, they will agree as to the correct
ness of our contention, which may have
weight with the joint commission, should
one be agreed to in bringing about such
reciprocal arrangements as are most de

Gen. Foster has said, we think that the
prospects for a joint commission are
