He will remain jero tYvo days longer in order to have an interview Yvith Governor Foster. 'The only point I wished to deter- continued the marquis "was as to tho nationality of the men they were naturalized Americans or whether they were still subjects of tho kingdom of Italy. We found Yvitnesses who knew all the de- ceased and know practically everything about them. They had applied for cit- izenship in the United States, but thojT had never completed the require- ments and had not become full-fledged citizens. TYVO of the number had never even made application for naturaliza- tion papers. The three Difatta broth- ers are the ones who had declared their intention of becoming citizens. John Oerami and B.
