During the prescutrevohitionary crisis iuCuba, under instructions from the state department, lie made representations to the captain general in tiie case of Jose Marhi Aquirre, an American citizen who was captured with other revolutionists, asking- for hi.s trial by civil tribunal as provided for by the protocol of the treaty of ]S77. .This request was promptly granted by s the authorities.
