DIPLOMATIC CCKUESl'ONDENOK ON' TH1
SUBJEOT.
WASHINOTON , May 2. The presi
dent sent to ttio house to-day , in ro
spouse to the resolution of inquiry ,
the correspondence between the Uni
ted States- and the Ilussian govern
ment relative to the treatment of Itns
si an , luwa. The correspondence ii
very voluminous , extending back tei
yoara , and including copies of a treat }
and ethur documents of this nature. .
There'is a letter from Minister Fostoi
to Secretary Blaine , dated July i)0
1881 , in which ho reviews at great
length , not only the treaty botweer
the United States nnd Russia , bul
also the treaties of Russia with uthei
countries , pertaining to thn rights } l
their citizens , and also the laws
of Russia relating to Jews.
By this it appears that under
the laws , Jews were prohibited from
coming to or 8 lltng in Russia , but
owing to the fad that many were
citizens of the Crimea and other dis
tricts obtained by war , the laws wore
modified , but in portions of Russia
the laws yet prevented the coming
of Jpws , even natives of sections
mentioned unless they came as mer
chants or bankers under special per
mission of the government. Ho says
I/ ho cannot find any account of the en
forcement of these rules against
Americans down to 18GO. In that
year , by an imperial ukase the laws
were modified so as. to admit other
Jews than those mentioned , including
those proposing to open factories.
Secretary Blame , in hiareply , refers
io the JrealyjeitoiirijrTiettfcecuij'tnG t ; j 6
countmo3'und "says'tHat on this brief
formulation of the case the govern
ment believes that under the treaty
and its treatment of Russians in this
\ country , it has just cause of complaint
regarding the cases of Wiekenzksi and
Poukes , the details of whose arrest
have already been published. Ho
proceeds to quote the treaty of 1831
m support of this claim. Where the
treaty gives an alien certain rights ,
those cannot bo interfered with by
local laws. It is a subject of regret
that a government to which wo are
allied by so many historical
ties as to that of Russia ,
shows a disposition to deal with tech
nicalities and enforce the letter pt the
_ law. 'Tho principle involved is ono
not recognized in our laws or by our
treaties. It is a new issue in our in
ternational relations. Wo can make
no now treaty nor accept any construc
tion of the present ono which shall
discriminate against any claoss of
Americans on account of their re
ligion.
Mr. Hoffman replied by letter tha ;
' that ho had submitted the letter of
Secretary Blaine to the Russian minister -
- ister of foreign affairs and was in
formed that in his opinion the section
of the treaty requiring Americans
coming hero to "submit to the laws
' prevailing" made the course of that
government quite justifiable ) in the
cases mentioned.
The next communication given is
from Secretary Frohnghuysen to Mr.
Hoffman , in which he says that the
i . prejudice of race and creed having
given way to claims to common hu
manity , the people of United States
have hoard with great regret of the
sufferings of Jews in Russia. The
president of course feels that the good
of the emperor should not bo held
morally responsible for acts it consid
ers wrong but is powerless to prevent ,
but should it appear to Mr. Hoffman
that the Russian government might
put forth moro effort to prevent this
course , ho is directed to indicate with
due ro.feronco , that the feelings of
friendship of the United States
for Russia prompt it. To
express the hope that the gov
ernment will find moans to cause this
persecution of these unfortunates to
cease. The letter onda by saying ; "If ,
however , it should come to your
knowlndgo that any citizens of the
United States are made victims of per
secution , you will feel it your duty to
omit no effort to protect them and to
report such cases to the department. '

alf Mexican half American town ,

BUIXER'S FIRST BLAZE.
3o DOUBOB the Qllra In a Thoroughly
KH'octual Manner.
At 4:30 : yesterday atternoon an
.larm of fire was sounded from box
1 , No. 3 engine house. The two
IOBO carts , Noa. 2 and 3 , and the
iooka responded. After some little
illiculty in locating thu fire it was
ventually found to proceed from a
mall one-story house at the foot of
it. Mary's avenue , and on the arrival
t thu department at the spot thu
nines were to be noon bursting in a
olumo from thu doors and windows ,
lie salvation of the house or any part
f it seeming impossible. In a short
inio , however , three streams of water
rero not on from the hydrants and
! io ( lames were fought with an energy
lat soon confined thorn to narrow
mitfl and eventually put thorn out
ntirely , without the destruction of
iu roof or wallfi of thu house.
Thu house belonged to Mr David
eaman , bartender at the place for-
lerly kept by Julius Treitschku.
luring the afternoon Mrs. Seaman
ad donu some washing in the kitchen
t the rear of the house , and had had
uito a warm fire in the coal atovo ,
ut supposed it had died out , so that
lero was no danger from it , when she
lit the house to go up town on an
rand , She had been absent an hour
hen the fire broke out , and it is
ippotod thutit caught from thu stove-
ipo passing through the roof , there
uing no Hue. It was first discovered
/ a neighbor , who found the whole
' the inside of the house in flames ,
hen ho reached the spot , and at once
wo the alarm. The house itself
of no great value , and
s owner could not bo ascertained.
[ r. Seaman had considerable furni-
ire stored away in the cellar beneath
iu house , in addition to that which
irnished the reams , nnd-his loss will
u very considerable , probably in the
i-ighborhood of a thousand dollars ,
n this he holds an insurance of five
undrqd dollars in the 0. T. Taylor
jenoy , which will fall short consider-
jly of covering his losses.
The department did excellent work ,
id this beint ( the first fire since the
Iminiatration of Chief Engineer Rut-
r , it will , if taken as an indication of
ib ability , go far to show that Omaha
ill bo no sufferer from his appoint-
tent to ono of the most important
ositiouu in the city government.
The house was completely deluged
ith water , but this was unavoidable ,
i it wan surrounded by frame build
ups , among which a serious conila-
ration could easily have been started.
