Paris, March 17. Tho situation
between tho Haytien government and
France has become acute and criti
cal. The French Legation at Port
Au Prince is menaced and a general
massacre of the white residents of
tho islands is feared. This informa
tion was conveyed In an official dis
patch to tho Foreign Office by M.
Carteron, the French minister to
The latter part of last week, M.
Borno, the Haytien minister of state,
assured M. Carteron that Haytl
would agre to allow tho refugees
who had taken asylum in the French
Consulates at Gonalves and St. Marc
to leave the Island.
This morning there came the news
of the execution at Port Au Prlnco

prominent persons on the charge of
conspiracy against the government,
together with a cablegram from M.
Carteron announcing that General

It is understood here that France,
Germany and Great Britain are act

General Antonor Fimln, who led
the last revolt of Hayti, Is among:
the refugees under the French flag.
The foreign office recognizes that tho
general and his followers are revo
lutionists but declines to hand them
over to the Haytien government on
the ground that there were no as
surances that the men would have a
legal trial. In this connection it was
explained that, according to French
tradition, any man who sought ref
uge under the French flag should
have at least temporary protection.
