Former Director General of

Methods Employed Handi
cap to U. S. Prestige.
Chlrufo Tribune-Omaha Bee Lraaed Wire.
Washington, Oct. 17. Severe
criticism of American administration
of affairs in Haiti came from John
Barrett, who recently ritired as di
rector general of the Pan-American
union.' Mr. Barrett declared that
methods employed by the United
States in Haiti and also in the
Dominican Republic and Nicaragua
have been "a most serious handicap
to the Pan-American influence and
prestige of the United States."
Mr. Barrett recently was request
ed by a member of the committee on
foreign relations of the United States
senate to state impartially his .opin
ion, based on his knowledge of Pan
American affairs, as to how the
Haitian situation is viewed in Latin
America. A summary of this state
ment was made public:
"Without criticising the govern
ment or administration, but answer
ing frankly a legitimate question, I
must admit that it is regretfully true
that the United States occupation of
Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and
even Nicaragua, and the methods
employed there, especially in Haiti,
no matter how well intended, have
been for many years, and are today,
a most serious handicap to the Pan
American influence and prestige of
the United States." ., '
"There is hardly a responsible
newspaper in all Latin America, that
has not seriously criticised the pol
icies and nethods of the United
States, and the reports of its admin
istration are always providing am
munition for anti-United .States agi
tators and critics. Although my
former official position as an inter
national officer prevented me from
making any formal protest to the
United States government, unless
requested by it, I tell only the truth
now as a private citizen when I say
that I constantly received during the
last six years complaints against the
United States in Haiti and the Dom
inican . republic from responsible
Secretary of the Navj Daniels de

Brig.-Gep. George Barhett, former
commandant of the marine corps,
that the marines charged with the
enforcement of the law had been
guilty of "indiscriminate killings"
of Haitian bandits, will be- investi
gated to the most minute degree.

message came from Sheffield,

The statement that the men struck

many who left the pits. They said
they did not understand voting

strike and it is clear a great many
