§ MR. TREVELYAN (Yorkshire, W. R.,) Elland
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the European Consuls in the vilayet of Monastir have been informed by the Vali that in the future no representations from them regarding outrages or abuses will be considered by him.
§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Earl PERCY,) Kensington, S.
The Vali of Monastir appears to have ignored representations made by the Austrian and Russian Consuls since the advent of the civil agents. The Austrian and Russian Ambassadors at Constantinople have, however, formally notified the Porte that the presence of the Civil Agents in no way alters the position of their Consuls, to whose representations they expect the same attention to be paid as in the past.
