FRED DOUGLASS IN HAYJI.
The Story of the American Minister's Recent Life at Port Au Prince. His Private Secretary Ran Matters After He Had Looked Douglass In. Had the American Minister Acted as 8e Should the Terrible Massacre Would Have Been Averted. Dispatches from Washington yesterday announce that Fred Douglass, minister to Hayti, had determined to resign. Probably the following from the New York Sun had something to do with his action: The rumors of revolution and murder which have been received from Port an Prince and other Haytian ports the last few days have finally been authenticated by the arrival in New York on the steamer Prince Wilhelm III.. of several members of the Haytian revolutionary party. a number of merchants who have found it necessary, owing to the unsafe and troublous times, to leave the island. From the reports given it iaprobable that this small negro republic In the West Indies will again go through the throes of massacre and aevolution from which it suffered so disastronsly a few years ago. The story which is printed this morning was obtained from a passenger on the Prince Wilhelm Ill., a friend of the reac tionary party, cnd a man whose knowledge of the country and its people may safely be relied on. His name did not appear on the passenger list of the steamer and his pres ence in New York is probably known to very few of his friends, owing to reasons which he does not feel called upon to make public. He was present at all the scenes he describes and was a witness of Hippolyte's massacre of May 28 and the week follow ing. The Prince Wilhelm II', sailed from Port an Frince at noon on Saturday, June 27, and arrived in the port last Friday. "On landing in New York," said the Sun's informant, "I read in the papers the story of the events which took place at Port an Prince from May 28 to June 2. This account contains errors of detail. The main facts, however, are correct, especially the assertion of the culpability of the Unit ed States minister, Mr. Frederick Douglas, or rather that of his private secretary, at whose mercy Mr. Douglas is completely left. owing to his age and his inability to speak French. The private secretary is Mr. Bassett, a mulatto, who has won the dis tiust of the whole population of Port as Prince. This mmn was formerly United States minister to ltayti, and was'one of the negotiators for the purchase of the Mole St. Nicholas. It was owing to his incom petenoc or fraudulent practices that the United Ftates was deprived of oprortunity of purchasing this important coaling sta tion. "The residents of Port an Prince, on seeing Basset return to the island as a pr= vate secretary, after having held the imsor tant office of minister, naturally sought for some explanation of the situation, and soon found that it was either from a lack of confidence of our goverment in their former envoy or a case of bankruptcy on the part of Basset, which compelled him to accept any office that would furnish him a livelihood. The office of private secretary has come up to Mr. Bassett'shigh eat expectations. He overrides the minis ter, and by submitting to the desires of the Haytian government, instead of asserting the rights of the nation he represents, he manages to fill his coffers to an extent which enables him to live in an extravagant manner and to lose heavily in the games of chance of which he is notoriously fond. "Thus it is only too true that Minister Douglass bears the moral blame for the assassinations committed during the six days, as encouraged by his eecretary, when he could have put a stop to it all by a mere sign. He is therefore to-day an object of distrust to his colleagues, of hate to all honest people, and a toy for the Haytian ministers who are crushing to earth the it terests of the United litstee. He allows American subjects to be expelled daily friom the country without cause, while he lulls himself to sleep by reading flattering arti cles published by these ministers in the official press. "On May 26, as soon as the first shots were fired in the attack on the prison, lec retary Bassett locked Minister Douglass into his apartments in the suburban villa, under the pretext t hat the minister's place was not in the midst of the bullets, and that he would go himself and see what the trouble was.iTihe prison, in which 2(N) politi cal prisoners had been placed by order of Hippolyte, who suspected that a revolution was being plotted under the leadershi: of Gen. buily Guesrier, was being storrued by a mob. In this prison there were a few thieves and incendiaries, who were delivered with the rest, aract that the president took as an excuse for the slaughters of that day. "To show, however, that the insurgents were merely tr ntg to deliver their fiends and not the criminals, aid that they did not even know in what cells their friends were confined, we know that they failed to release three political captives. one of whom was Mme. Solly Guarriere, the wife of their leader. This uno. tunate woman had been incarcerated for weeks in irons and had been tortured daily by o;der of Hippolyte to compel her to tell of the whereabouts of her husband. As soon is he was caught and shot, on that day the wae set free. The cause of the attack on the prison was an order i-sued by tih pre-i ident to take all these pri;onei s to ses on a Haytian man-of-war sud there shoot o0 drown them all. "An hour and a half after the attack on _ OPS JULY 25 ::THE :: : BARKEU TOYSTE : :COMPANY Will commence the sale of the lots in the I ar k er Townsite on the 25th day of July, 1591, at the following places: Helena, at the otlice of JAS.

Terms of sale will be One-Third cash, bal ance 6 and 12 months, at 7 per cent. the prison." continued the speaker. "the wholesale slaughter was begun in the streets. The houses of the several consuls were guarded by troops. who had orders to shoot any who might go there to seek refuge, whether nativesor foreigne's. When this condition of affairs was understood the consuls thought it time to put a stop to it all. The Spanish consul, therefote, being the sensor diplomatic officer-on account of the absenoeof the French minister,who was at La Coupe; of the English minister, who has not been appointed since the accession of Hippolete, and of the United States minister, who was hiding in his cellar called the meeting. Mr. Bassett, com monly recognized as the virtual rep resentative of our government, was present at the meeting. He put a stop to all progress by saying that Hippo lyte was in the right, that the white people lynched the negroes in the United btates, and that the colored race in a land where it was the master was justified in killing as many white men as possible; that the only fault he had to find with the president was that he did not shoot every white man in Hayti. My authority for this statement." explained the Sun's informant, "is Mr. Arthur Crosewell, who for nineteen years has been the attorney of the British and Spanish legations, and who was present at the meeting. "When this opinion had been advanced by the representative of the United States, each consul was compelled to reserve his own action. But when, a few moments later, Mr. Riiand, a French mer chant, while smoking a cigar on his balcony, had his door, broken into by the soldiery and was shot for not having salu ted the passing president, whom he had not even observed; when his nephew was stretched dead at his feet for having pro tested against this tct of barbarity-then the chancellor of the French legation put on his official uniform, and, ascending alone the stops of the palace, declared that the first Frenchman injured from that mo went would be the signal for the gathering and arming of the French colony, and at their head be would take such measures as were necessary for the preservation of life and property. The Mr. Itigand who had been killed was a native born, a great grandson of the French General Rigaud and had recently filed papers to obtain French citizenship. "The energetic action on the part of the French representative caused the natives to respect all those under the protection of the tre-color, and perhaps even all white men and strangers. It is certain that the intervention of the United States minister, at the head of the whole corps of consuls, would have put a stop to the terrible scenes which lasted three days. and which lasted as long as they did by the mere en couragement of Mr. Douglass' secretary.
