April 10.—The following is the correspondence between Secretary Blaino and tho Italian government since the secretary's note to Marquis Imperial!, acknowledging notice of Baron Fava's departure: "UoYAt. tiEOATtow Off iTAt/r, WASHINGTON, April 2, 1891.—Mr. Secretary of State: 1 hasten to acknowledge the receipt of tho note •which your excellency did mo tho honor to address to mo on tho 1st Inst.

"I have In1d tho contents of your excellency's aforesaid note before tho government of the king, and his excellency the president of tho council, his majesty's minister of foreign affairs, has just directed me to address the following communication to you: "'The government of tho king of Italy has asked nothing beyond the prompt Institution of Judicial proceedings through the regular channels.

"iMPEUIAfiT. "To his excellency James G. Blaine, secretary Of state." HKPT.T OF SKCnETAIlY BT.AINE. "DEPAKTMKNT O1T STATK, WASHINGTON, April 14, 1891. — Marquis Imperial!, Charge d'Affaires, Ktc., Etc., Etc.—Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note dated Thursday, April 2, 1891. It contains a second telegram from Marquis Rudlnl, a part of which I here quote: " 'The government of the king of Italy has asked nothing beyond tho prompt institution of judicial proceedings through tho regular channels. It would have been absurd to claim the punishment of the guilty parties without the warrant of a regular judgment. The Italian government now repeats the same demand. Not until the ioderal government shall have explicitly declared that the aforesaid proceedings shall be promptly begun can the diplomatic incident be considered as closed.' "This government .certainly had no desire •whatever to change the meaning of the Marquis Rudinl's telegram of March 24. It was delivered at the state department by Baron Fava in person, written in his own hand and ox- pressed In the English language. The following Is the full text of the telegram: . "KOME, March 2-1, 1S91.—Italian Minister, Washington: Our requests to the federal government are very simple. Some Italian subjects acquitted by the American magistrates have been murdered in prison while under the immediate protection of tho authorities. Our rinht, therefore, to demand and obtain th* tmn.- iKhment of the murderers and indemnity for ih". victims is unquestionable. I wish to odd that the public opinion in Italy s justly impatient, and if concrete provisions vere not at once taken I should flntl myself in he painful necessity of showing openly our dls atisfaction by recalling the minister of his majesty from a country where he is unable to btain justice. RUDINI." "The words underscored are precisely those which I quoted in my former note, and I am directed by tho president to express the satis- action of this government with the very ma- erlal qualification of tho demand made by tho Marquis Ruclini on behalf of the Italian gov eminent. You quote in your note another part if tho Alarquis Kudini's telegram of April S in these words: 'Meanwhile his majesty'sgoverement takes note of the declaration whereby the federal •ovcrnment recognizes that an indemnity is clue to tho families of tho victims in virtue of he treaty in force between tho two countries.' "If the Marquis Rudini will carefully examine my note of April 1 he will discover that I dM not 'recognize that an indemnity is duo to ;he families of the victims in virtue of the roaty in force between tho two countries.' What 1 did say was in answer to Baron Fava's assertion that the United States government refused to take this demand for indemnity into consideration. 1 quote my reply: The United States, so far from refusing, has distinctly recognized the principal of indemnity to those Italian subjects who may have been, wrontjfd by a violation of thi rights t'cured to them under the treaty with, the United States concluded Jr'tbruury so, 1871.'' 'The Marquis Rudini may be assured that the United States would recompense every Italian subject who might 'be wronged by a violation of a treaty' to which the faith of the United States is pledged. But this assurance leaves unsettled the important question whether the treaty has been violated. Upon this point the president, with sufficient facts placed before him, has taken full time for decision. He now directs that certain considerations in the general subject be submitted to the judgment of tho Italian government. "As a precedent of great value to the case under discussion, the president recalls the conclusion maintained by Mr. Webster in 1851, when he was secretary of state under president Fillmore. In August of that year a mob in New Orleans demolished the building in which the office of the Spanish consul was located and at the same timu attacks were made upon coffee houses and cigar shops kept by Spanish subjects. American citizens were involved in the losses, which in the aggregate wero large. The supposed cause of the mob was the intelligence of tho execution of fifty young Americans in Havana and the banishment to Spanish mines of nearly 200 citizens of the United States. Tho victims were all members of the abortive Lopez expedition. "In consequence of these depredations of the mob upon the property of the Spanish consul, as well as against the Spanish subjects, Don Calderon de la Parca, the minister of Spain, do- manded indemnification for all the losses,- both official and personal. "Mr. Webster admitted that tho Spanish consul was entitled to Indemnity, and assured the Spanish minister that if the injured consul, Mr. Laborde, 'shall return to his post or any other consul for New Orleans shall be appointed by her Catholic majesty's government the officers of this government resident in that city will be Instructed to receive and treat him with courtesy and with a national salute to the flag of his ship, if he shall arrive in a Spanish vessel, fts a demonstration of respect such as may signify to him and to bis government the sense entertained by the government of the United States of the gross injustice done to his predecessor by a lawless mob, as well as the indignity and insult offered by it to a foreign state with which the United States are, and ever wish to remain, on terms of the most respectful and pacific intercourse.' "But when pressed .by the Spanish minister to afford indemnity to Spanish subjects injured by the mob in common with American citizens Mr. Webster declined to accede to the demands and gave his reasons as follows: " This government supposes that the rights of the Spanish consul, a publio officer residing here under the protection of the United States government, are quite different from those of the Spanish subjects who have come into the country to mingle with our own citizens and here to pursue their private business and objects. The former may claim special indemnity; tho latter aru entitled to such protection as is afforded to our own citizens. While, therefore, tho lossos of individuals, private Spanish subjects, are greatly to be regretted, yet it is understnod that many American citizens suffered equal losses from the same cause, and those private individuals, subjects of her Catholic maiesty, coming voluntarily to reside in the United States have certainly no cau-e of complaint if thoy are protected by tho same laws and the same administration of law as native- born citizens of this country. They have, in fact, some advantages over citizens of the state in which they happen to be, Inasmuch to* they are enabled, until they become citizens themselves, to prosecute tor any injuries done to their persons or property In the courts of the United States or the state Courts, at their election. 1 '•It Is proper, however, to add that two years after Mr. Webster wrote tho foregoing note congress, in recognition of certain magnanimous conduct on the part of the queen of Spain In pardons bestowed upon Americans who had unjustifiably invaded the island of Cuba, enacted a joint resolution, approved by President Flllmoro March 8, iai3—tho last day of his term—indemnifying tho Spanish consul and other Spanish subjects for tho losses sustained in tho Now Orleans mob of 1851. The considerations upon which this resolution was passed wero held not to contravene tho original position of Mr. Webster, shared also by President Fillmore. "The right to judicial remedy which Webster assured to the Spanish subjects is likewise assured to the Italian subjects. Tho right is specially guaranteed in the sec ond sed ion of the third article of tho constitution. And, as Mr. Webster points out, the resident alien has a privilege which is denied to tho citizen. Tho widows and children of tho citizens who lost their lives by mob violence may sue the leaders and members of tho mob only in the couVts of tho stato of Louisiana; while the widows and children of the Italian subjects who suffered death have tho right to sue each member of tho mob not only in the state courts, but also before tho federal tribunals lor the district of Louisiana. ''Provision is made in tho revised civil code of Louisiana for redress of such grievances as the widows and children of the victims of tho mob may plead. I quote: " 'Article 2,314. Every act whatever of mnn that causes damage to another obliges him by whoso fault it happened to repair it. The right of this action shall survive in case of death, in favor of the minov children and widow of the deceased, or either of them, and In default of these in favor of the surviving father or mother, or either of them, for tho space of one year from tho death.' " 'Art. 2,318. Every person is responsible for tho damage ho occasions not merely by his act, but by his negligince, his imprudence or his want of skill." " 'Art. 2,321. He who causes another person to do an unlawful act or assists or encourages in the commission of It is answerable in solidowlth that person for the damage caused by such act.' "Tho government of the United States would feel justified in resting on the argument and conclusion of Mr. Webster if the mob of March 14. 1891, did not in some of its characteristics differ from tho mob of ISM. But it is due to entire candor, due to this government and due to the government of Italy to point out certain differences of which the government of the United States is honorably bound to take notice. "In the case of the mob of 1851 Mr. Webster asserts that 'No personal injury was offered to anyone;' that'the police and other legal au thorities did all that was possible to preserve the peace and arrest the rioters;' that the mob acted in the heat of blood and not in pursuance Jbbahiorfs favorite fad, centers in that famous, fascinating game—lawn tennis. But there are women who cannot engage in any pastime. They are delicate, feeble and easily exhausted* They are sufferers from weaknessea and disorders peculiar to females, which are accompanied by sallow complexions, expressionless eyes and haggard looks. For overworked, " worn - out,'* " run - down," debilitated teachers,, milliners, dressmakers, seamstresses, "shop-girls," housekeepers, nursing' mothers, and feeble women generally, Dr. Pierco's Favorite Prescription is the greatest earthly boon, being unequaled as an appetizing cordial and restorative tonic. It's the only medicine for women, sold by druggists, under a positive guarantee from the makers, of satisfaction in every case, or money refunded. This guarantee has been faithfully carried out for years. of any predetermined plan or purpose of injury j or insult;' that 'the mob was composed of Irresponsible persons, the names of none of whom are known to the government of the United States, nor, so far as the government is informed, to its officers in New Orleans. 1 "As promptly us possible after the lamentable occurrence at New Orleans the president directed the attorney general to cause through his department a full inquiry to be made Into all facts connected therewith, a'nrt solicited his opinion whether any criminal proceedings would lie under the federal laws in the federal courts against persons charged with the killing of Italian subjects. He has not yot i-eeeived the official report. If it be found that a prosecution can bo maintained under tho statutes of the United States the case will be presented to tho next grand jury according to the usual methods of criminal administration. But if it shall be found, as seems probable, that criminal proceedings can only be taken in the courts of Louisiana, the president can in this direction do no more than to urge upon the stato officers the duty of promptly bringing the offenders to trial. This was done In his telegram to tho governor of Louisiana as early as the 15th of March. "If It shall result that the case can be prosecuted only in tho stato courts of Louisiana and the usual judicial investigation and procedure under the criminal law is not resorted to, it will then be the duty of the United States to consider whether some other form of redress may be asked. "It is understood that the stato grand jury is now investigating the affair, and while it is possible that the jury may fail to present indictments the United States cannot assume that such will be the case. 'Tho United States did not by the treaty with Italy become the Insurer of the lives or property of Italian subjects resident within CUT territory. No government is able, however high its civilization, however vigilant Its police supervision, however dfevore Its criminal code and however prompt and inflexible Its criminal administration, to secure Its own citizens against violence prompted by individual malice or by sudden popular tumult. The foreign resident must be content In such cases to share the same redress that is offered by the law to the citizen, and has no just cause of complaint or right to ask the interposition of his country If the courts are equally open to him for the redress of his injuries. "The treaty in the first, second, third, and notably in the twenty-third, articles clearly limits the rights guaranteed to the citizens of the contracting powers in oue territory of euctt to equal treatment ancl to free access to the courts of justice. "Foreign residents are not made a favored class. It Is not believed that Italy would desire a more stringent construction of her duty under tho treaty. Where the injury inflicted upon a foreign resident is not the act of the government or of its officers, but of an individual or of a mob, it is not believed that a claim for indemnity can justly be made unless it shall be made to appear that the public authorities charged with the peace of the community have connived at the unlawful act or, having timely notice of the threatened danger, have been guilty of such gross negligence In talcing the necessary precautions as to amount to connivance. "If, therefore, it should appear that among those killed by the mob at New Orleans there were some Italian subjects who were resident or domiciled in that city, agreeably to our treaty with Italy, and not in violation of our immigration laws, and who were abiding in the peace of tho United States and obeying the laws thereof and the state of Louisiana, nnd that the publio officers charged with the duty of protecting life and property In that city connived . at tho work of the mob, or upon proper notice or information of the threatened danger failed to take any steps for the preservation of the publio peace, and afterward to bring the guilty to trial, the president wruld under such circumstances feel that a case was established that should be submitted to the consideration of congress with a view to the relief of the families of the Italian subjects who had lost their lives by lawless violence. "Accept, sir, the renewed assurance of my high consideration. JAMES G. BLAINK." I had been troubled five months, with Dyspepsia. The doctors told me it was chronic.
