An appeal was pending when the Germán minister interfered without invitation and, it is ciaimed, forced his way into the private apartments of Tiresias Simón Sara, the president of the Haytian republic, and in a rude and peremptory manner demanded the release of Lueders, with an apology to the Germán government, ai indemnity of $1,000 a day for the time he had been in prison, the immediate trial of the pólice who arrested him and the dismissal of the judges who sentenced him. If the prisoner were not released within twenty-four hours the indemnity was to be $3,000 per day for every day afterward. the current of public opinión and the certainty of support in any defensive action which he might tak, the president callèd in as many troops as could be reached at short notie, the barracks were filled, ammunition was served out and every preparation made for a fierce struggie.
