WAShINGTON ' , "u ! 2I.-There Is good
authority for the statement that a peremptory
demont wIll le made b ) time United States
upon France for the release of ex-Consul
John Wailer of Tamalnve , and that satlefac-
tory Indemnity wi be reflulre for his arrest
and Imprlrnment , and I probable request
for a commission to determine his rights In
Madagascar. The dIscussion oC the case be-
twecn the French and AmerIean diplomats has
reached a point where , I Is said , there Is
little else for the United Slates to do. owlll
to the fact thai repeated requests fora copy
oC the charges and testmony upon whIch
Wailer was couvlcted have not been rurlshed
by the French govcrnment I Is said ut the
State department today that the delay In the
case hall been very anl'lnl to time oleals !
anti especially to Ambassador Eustis. The
diatoriness oC France In this mater Is regarded -
garded as Indlcatn ! that sue has a very
poor caSe all wi be unable to resist time
demmmantits ma'lo by the UnIte Slates. A
conditon whch ! makes time delay of France
more aggravatIng Is the fact that the do-
pahment Is aware oC the seriousness of Wa- !
ler's Iness In prison an.i . Curther confinement
Is Injuring his imealth. International
healh. fnternatonal questions
general ) ' move slowly. but time delay In producing -
ducing papers and testImony In the caw oC
WaIler has leen oC a very exasperating
nature and has resulted In sharp pressure by
time Unltel ! States olcals to brInK about a :
settlenuemut . Some oC time reports whleh have !
been reeeh'ed Washlnglon say time treat-
ment of Waler has been unJust amid hIs ar-
ret and trial a breach oC Internatonl
coin Ity.
With reference to the criticisms whIch
have bean made Crom time to tme concerim-
tme concer-
InK the State ' conduct
department's conluct oC time
Waler case , It can be stated that : lr. \ , , ! -
ler's frIends here arc satsfed that time ease
Is receiving the most careful and zealous at-
tenton oC the department I Is leared on :
the best that ' . '
lest nUlhorly notwlhstandlnK See-
retary Olne"s absence from the capital , he
has given personal atenton to the conduct
oC the Investgatons looking to Mr. Wailer's :
release a 11 restoraton to his rIghts Fur- I
thernuore the president hlnselC has mant-
Cested a concern regarding the mater which
he woull not give . ' 1,1 , did not feel time case
was unusual In c mplcatons Invol\'ell
Enough Is known rcgardlnK the progress of
the negotiations to justify time statement that
the dellartment Is conl"lent they wIll result
In time release of Mr. Waler , with Indemnl )
for Imprisonment and the restoration oC his
personal rIghts.
There Is also authority for the statcment
that the tlepartment fe-is assured that Wal-
ler's hare release couhl have leen secured be-
Core now , bolt I was felt that this \ would be
accomplished lt time risk of losing Imlemnly
for hIs Imprisonment anti time protection oC
Mr. Wailer In his property rlhls In lada-
gasear. All the money Interests la\olved are
11:1ed : by 10 one In the dcpartment at less
than $1.000.000 and the es has been handled
on the theory that It was better that Mr.
Waler should contlnm lila incarceration Cer
n few months , rather than risk the loss or
his claim
Ambassador Eusts has Cound It hnprae-
tcable to secure more oC the recJrd In
France thun the specification ur the charges ,
hut It Is ulnlerslood a promise has leen mth
to seeuro the full record from ladagascar.
This wi take some tIme , but the State
Ilellutmcnt Is confident' that when reeelveJ ! !
