LONDON , July 9. M. De Blowltr , the
famous Paris correspondent , commenting In
the London Times today upon the alleged
Interview with the United States ambassa
dor to France , Mr. James B. Eustls , pub
lished yesterday In the Figaro , said thai
such an interview evidently constituted anew
now departure In diplomacy. In reference
to the utterances imputed to Mr. Eustla
regarding Canada , M. De Blowltz said II
would be dllllcult to believe that the am
bassador represented a friendly nation.
Several of the Paris newspapers also com
ment today on the alleged Interview.
The Estafette says that Mr. EuUls ad
mitted that the United States supported
Japan against France , Russia and Germany ;
Canada against England and Cuba against
Spain and that the United States has am
bitious commercial Ideas respecting Mada
gascar. All those acts and plans , the Es
tafette comments , "are contradictory of the
Monrob doctrine and combined with their
apparent forgetfulness ot our former fra
ternal relations , compels us to anticipate
that the future will bo darkened by disputes
and misunderstandings. "
The Libre Parole also severely criticises
Mr. Eustis , and , accepting the Figaro In
terview as genuine , says the American
ambassador has committed a broach of the
laws of hospitality.

gashed , the teeth were knocked out and the
neck was black and bruised as If she had
been choked to death. There were evidences
of a terrible struggle. At the Inquest , owing
