Mr. Phelps to Mr. Blaine.


Marschall agrees that money should go to three consuls if municipal president resigns, but says Senfft resigned to Malietoa, which indeed (was) irregular and absurd, and Marschall has telegraphed Senfft he can not resign to Malietoa, and chancellor advises him not to resign at all. They know nothing except this fact of resignation, and talk as if provoked at Senfft’s conduct. I saw Malet first, who shares our views.
