Mr. Taylor to Mr. Olney.


Minister for foreign affairs submits as counter testimony depositions nine witnesses, and assumes that same destroy Delgado’s case. Theory advanced is that Pino and Delgado were shot by insurgents and not by Spanish troops. After careful analysis of counter evidence, clearly of opinion that it neither supports Spanish theory nor weakens Delgado’s case as presented. * * * Will at once review it and point out its insufficiency unless you order otherwise. Will mail whole to-morrow or next day.
