Las been brought to bear on the state de
partment to lnduco it to secure Justico
lor Waller, tho United State ex-consul
In Madagascar whom tha French so ar
bitrarily arvted and imprisoned, and
tunny prominent men have interested
themsolTes in the case. The two senators
from Kansas, of which state Waller is a
citizen, have been particularly energetic
and Senator Martin has called in person
at tho state department to urge prompt
Action. But somehow things do not
move with any degree of rapidity. The
department some time ago instructed Mr.
Eustls, our ambassador at Paris, to make
a thorough investigation of Waller's
case; to see him and to procure a copy of
the record of tho court martial showing
tho evidence on which Waller suffered
tlio extraordinarily severe sentence of con
finement fur twenty years.
franco Inclined to Mm HtJpplsh."
The ambissador has not been very suo
eessful in executing hit Instructions,
though It appears thnt he has dono all in
his power to carry them out. For one
thing the French government has abso
lutely refused the ambassador tho right to
see Waller personally, a very extraordi
nary nttltudo to assume where the rights
of an American citizen are concerned.
Thon It has fulled so far to supply the am
bassador with tho desired copy of the
court-martial record in order that our
government may satisfy itself of tho suf
ficiency of the evidence on which Waller
was convicted. It is said by Waller's
friends here that altogether the proceed
ings wero extremely irregular and a trav
esty upon justice. The fact that Mr.
Kustis as yet has been unable to secure
anything like a record appears to give
Weight to theso statements.

Then a, to 1'aul Bray, Wallor's stop
Son, it is clear that he was deported from
M idagascar and suffered hardships with
out the vestige of a trial or any legal pro
ceeding, and as ho Is a full-Hedged Amer
ican cliisin this mint form the subjjot of
a dotnnad f jr redress. Altogether the
casn Is one threatening to hold out many
iliillcultles in the way ofan amlcab0aajftal
JuHtmunt, but in view of the pressure
which is being rxurtod on the stato de
partment it may be assumed that it will
endeavor to do so before congress meets
aguln, and the subject is further compli
cated by lnstruotljns from the leglslatiro
branch similar to tboso which formed tho
basis of the Mora cue.

Washington. July 23 "Why is It,
akotl the yo'ung congressman from Grass
Like, "thnt th-jio foreign representatives
liVj so much butter than our senators and
"Because," replied the veteran member
from tho metropolis, "foreign countries
pay them about ten times as much for
public setvlu'S as the United States."
And then tho veteran member who
know nil about the Ins and outs of oflk-i.i!
salaries, barked up his statement with
tho following detail. ' S r Julian
Puuncefort, tho British ambassador,
receives I.U.UW in gold per year, which is
equivalent In our -money to $i-),OiM).
Besides this ho has tho sumptuous em
bassy on Connecticut nvdnuo. ono of tho
finest buildings in Washington.
It lielongs to the British Government,
and is not a source of expense to the
Ambassador in any respect. It Is . quip
ped with six secretaries, who do nil his
oilluinl work, and n sniull army of but
lers, lackeys, oto , who look after his tlo
l.iestlc wants. B.'sldes this tho British
Government makes a bulk allowance fur
running expenses. In the aggregato, the
amount at the comnnd of Sir Julian,
over and abovo his toJ.'JUO. Is not much
short of fJj.oOJ. That is to say, ho has
nt his command about tTo.OJU per year.
His salary alone Is equal to that of tho
President of tho United States, but the
President has no perquisites, whereas
Great Britain gives her representative
"Ambassador Patenotre, of France, re
reive fcM.ftw a year. In addition the
French government pays the rent for the
old Porter mansion on K street, at tho
rate of fl.OiW per Toar. 1'hen he Is sup
plied with official and domestic help, be
sides a liberal allowance for olliclal ex
peuscs. Tho German ambassador. Baron
Von Thle Imann, receives f30,0U0 per year.
The Gernmn government has recently
purchased one of tho finest residences on
Massachusetts avenue, and has equipped
it from top to bottom In a most sumptu
ous stylo.. The embassy is. provided with
it own stables and carriages and horse,
and with a most liberal number of oI
flcial and household assistants, all at the
expense of the imperial government.
"The Russian minister, Prlnco Catacu
Sona, receives nlut .3.0J0. Tho Rus
sian have also taken a house, although
they have not purchased, but have taken
a long lease. The government pays tho
rent and also make ample allowance for
official and household help. Even tho
bouth American republics pay on a much
more liberal scale than docs the United
r-tnt -a. For Instance, Signor Romero of
Mexico receives FJiU) per year. This 1
doubtless due, however, to the fact that
Romero ranks as one of the first men In
his country, and President Din has long
desired to hare hint return and assume
the direction of financial affair."
