Count de Crenneville to Mr. Wharton.
Washington, August 10, 1889. (Received August 12.)
Sir: I have the honor to transmit to you a letter addressed to the Austro-Hungarian consul in Milwaukee, by Mr. Bradley G. Schley, relative to the Emerich Hasziel, who, on arriving with his family in New York, was re-embarked on the steam-ship Trave for Bremen by the collector of the port.
The two affidavits here inclosed show that Emerich Hasziel is not at all a contract laborer, and that George Hasziel, his brother, who resides in Milwaukee since a year and who is still an Austrian subject and a poor man, has paid the amount of $124.50 for the tickets. This sum should be, under the circumstances, repaid to him. I have therefore the honor to call your attention, sir, to this matter, and begging you to inform me of the decision which your Government will take, I renew, etc.,
