Koldt, who says he Is an American citizen, wrttes to The World from the jail of Oruro, Bolivia, that the Bolivians have no right to object to the appointment of Mr. C, H. J. Taylor for Minister to Bolivia on the ground of his color, because the Bolivians have shown in Mr. Boldt's ease that "they are black inside inside and outside, too.'' BIr. Boidt complains that on July 29 lost he was'aUaekcd by u mob of fifty Bolivian roughs, who set fire to his Iiou.se, drove him away, und after he had fought them ior three miles on open ground, wounding three of his opponents, he was taken prisoner. Since that time he has been passed from one prison to another, occupying occupying most of the lime a cell in "a dirty prison, which on account of its dirt and tilth would make a cow sick." Mr. Boldt is very indignant at the illegal and brutal way he has becu treated, and asserts that he has not found the Bolivians "an enlightened people," as they have, he claims, taken a change of venue in his CUKO without consulting him. He says, however, that he still has hopes of •"ing justice by the nid of the Government of United "' • getti the' 2d States.
