An American Diplomat Pe verely Censured. CONSUL LEWIS AND THE MOOKS. Loud Complaints Aga'nst His Con duct—Echoes from the Old World. Associated Press Dispatches to tbe Herald. Tangier, February 4 —The Morocco Times today print? a continuation of its etoriea about ex-United States OoOSttl William Keed Lewis, in which it telle, of an unfortunate Moor who purchased the protection of the American Copeulnto, and not being able to pay ('own the price demanded, gave notes on his property with the understanding that he was to have five years time to pay them iv. AVithin a month after giving the notes, he was summoned to Tangier and told he must pay or go to jail, and a few days later he was imprisoned and all his prop erty sold. His brothers succeeded in raising money to get him out of prison by mortgaging the family property to Jews. Now they are in a worse difficulty than ever. The Jews demand the money, and threaten to ' take all the property and put all three of the brothers in prison until the whole debt is paid, together with all expenses. The Morocco Times says the only thing to be done to save this unfortunate family from ruin and death is for the United States Government to settle the claims of the Jews and pay all expenses in the matter. They had no manner of right to send a repref eitative here and maintain him in a position to swindle; and imprison poor, hard-working people. The people who took the poor, uufortu nate Moor to United Srates Consul Lewis, and conducted all the negotiations in the matter, were two Jews named Solomon Azigue and Abraham Amselem. The laYer is the same who, shortly after the incident mentioned above, was flogged by order of Consul Lewis and then sen tenced to twelve months' imprisonment. TltANS.P.ttltiC ADVICES.
