Cim Against Him to Our Representative .Some 1m. formation About the Pay of Diplomat, Foreign sod American, GlTan bj Vet erao Coog-reMmaii. Washikqtos, July 23 Great Dresnare 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. TI.e Cae. of Paul llray. 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. HO IV AIIIIAWAIXJAS ARE PAII. Companion ol the ealnries of Foreign and t olled states Diplomat. 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 congressmen ' "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 Innumerable allowances. "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." TBOVULE A Boer WARSHIP ABMOH. Vavy Department slaving Had Lack wMh tho lira Plates. WASHlNOTOX. Jul VI Tha Din .1... Bartment ha been having baa iuca iaUlr J In securing heavy armor p.ata Zar tno Dig battleships, and owing to tha rejection of about a dozen great plates the completion of tho ormor plating of theso ships may be delayed for some months. Most of tho plates were intended for the battleships Massachusetts and Iowa. When they were submitted to tho naval inspector hi report to the department showed that tha plates wero badly burnel in places oa tbo uriace. In some eases there wero de pressions in tho face of a flftecn-inch plate four fust long and two feet broad. whero the faeo hud been burnt out to tlie doptb of seven-eighths of an inch. Not only was the plate weakened hy the loss of metal at sncli point, but the metal below was decarbonized and re duced to the condition of wrought iron, so that It could not bo hardened by tho Harvey process. Just whnt caused these flaws is not known at the department. but it is supposed thcr nrose from the adoption of some experimental treatment Intended to cheapen tho cost of production or else resulted from forcing the tempera ture too high while tho plates wero biinc, llarveyized, in the effort to expedite tho process.
