Bayard has instructed Mnib or ilcLano to
inform M. Flourens that the Government
of the United States holds that the decree
of naturalization granted by it to a French

French Government either in its executive

assumption that they are not citizens of the
United States this Department asks for
their immediate release and for a proper
compensation for the lo.scs which they
have received by such detention. It can
not be admitted that American citizens not

THE ARLINGTON TRAGEDY.
General ltolief That Lonis Gratelaschen
Murdered lite llrotlicr Fred, Ills Sister-ID-Law
and the Other Five Fersuns and
Arlington. Neb., May 9. The awfu!
affair at the Frccse farm is still an absorb
ing topic, the general belief existing that
the death of the eight persons found in the
ruins of the burned barn was the result of
a fearful crime. A more careful examina
'tionof the charred corpse ofMrs.Grate
Iuschen showed that her throat had been
cut Tbe left temple of her husband, Fred
Grateluschen, was found to have been
crushed in. A motive for the
murder exists. Louis Grateluschen
was employed by his brother Fred on tbo
farm and was displeased because he
thought he was not paid enough and deter
mined to be revenged on Fred and bis wife.
The theory is that he killed Mrs. Gratelus
chen with a butcher knife as she entered
the barn to milk the cows and then brained
his brother. The hired man was then
killed, together with Mrs. Freese aad the
two children as they were attracted to the
barn by the outcries. The murdeier proba
bly followed up his direrul work by firing
tbe building and committing suicide.

Hard on Slave Children.
Chicago, May 9. Judge Tuley, in a con
tested will case, has decided that a child
born in slavery is illegitimate and can havo
no heirs but those of her own body. The
ground for the decision is that slaves being
chattels no legal marriage between them
or with them is possible any more than
with or between real estate. The case will
be appealed. The opponents of the decision
hold that the proclamation1 of emancipa
tion and the constitutional amendments
gave the freed i.Iavca all tho rights and
privileges of freedom retroactively and
made their children legitimate.
