nwnltlng Information from Ambassador
l'tistls ns to the manner In which the
second dematul for the record of the
Waller court-martial, which was held In
Tnmative, hns been received In Prance
It Is now learned definitely that the Trench
government refused to furnish the record
upon the llrst presentation of the re
quest, and that this refusal wn met on
the pnrt of tho state depirtment by a more
positive and prelng demand for all the
piper. Tho department Is Informed by
Mr. Hustls that this demand hns been
presented. There hns hei n quite a sulll
cient time for a roplj, but none his been
received. The course of the Preneh In
their refusal to supplj the record Is con
sidered most unusual, and as no oxpl inn
lion was ouchsafed the depirtment Is at
a loss to know upon what grounds It
Tho supposition Is gaining ground tint
Prance's refusal to furnish the recortl is
due to a desire not to give publicity to
revelations made In the tetters from
Waller, which were Intercepted by the
l'rench authorities, concerning the mis
conduct of some nf the l'rench soldiers
In letters which have been received here
from Waller within the pnst few dajs
he rev oils the fact that In his letters to
his wife he Informed her of various out
rages committed upon the native women
of Tamatave, and gives such a circum
stantial account of these proceedings as
to rcllect on the Preneh soldiery In Mad
agascar in a wn which the Preneh au
thorities might not desire to see published
to the world. There Is good reason for
bollevlng that In cae of a second refusal
by Prance to supply tho recortl, a third
dem ind will bo mule more petemptorj.
The state department authorities consider

it Is liable to develop some verj delicate
