The Chargé in Haiti ( Heath ) to the Secretary of State

39. Reference Legation’s telegram No. 36 of April 5, noon.3 Senator Hudicourt today introduced a resolution referring to recent customs frauds which he estimated to total more than $200,000 and called on the Government to “seize the occasion of these depredations” to insist “through diplomatic channels” upon the return of the administration of Haitian affairs and “especially the finances” to the Haitian people.

Hudicourt supported by a small gallery of about 50 people asked for an immediate vote on the resolution but the Senate wanted to refer it to committee.
