The Minister in Haiti (Munro) to the Acting Secretary of State

92. My telegram No. 87, July 28, 9 a.m. Chamber of Deputies has passed budget with the following transitory article; translation:

“In the event that an accord should be reached for the return to the Government in whole or in part of the Treaty Services and the other services heretofore administered under the control of the Financial Adviser-General Receiver, the Executive power is and remains authorized to effect such modifications, arrangements, or adjustments in the budget deemed necessary”.

The budget has now gone to the Senate and that body will probably pass the budget as it now stands before closing the session on the 6th instant.

The foregoing article represents the effort made by the Government to “neutralize” the budget.
