  SIR: You are instructed to request of the Italian Government, in pu.r
suance of existing treaty stipulations between the two countries, the
extradition of Salvatore Paladini, under indictment in the UJnited States
court for the district of New Jersey on the charge of knowingly pass-
ing counterfeit money of the United States, who is now believed to be
within the jurisdiction of the Kingdom of Italy.
  The President's warrant to receive the fugitive has been issued to
Cono Casale of Newark, N. J., one of the court constables.
       I am, etc.,

No. 223.]                 LEGATION OF THE UNITED STATES,
                      BRome, August 4, 1888. (Received August 18.)
   SIR: I have the honor herewith to transmit copies of the correspond-
ence between this legation and the Italian foreign office in relation to
the extradition of Salvatore Paladini, a fugitive from justice, who is
under indictment in the United States court for the district of New
Jersey on the charge of passing counterfeit money of the United States.
This correspondence will become intelligible upon a brief review of the
following facts:
   I was instructed to demand the extradition of said Paladini by your
 letter No. 93, of April 26, 1888, which informed me that the President's
 warrant to receive the fugitive had been issued to one Cono Casale.
 Casale presented himself at the office of this legation on the 17th day
 of May', 1888, bringing with him the papers relating to the case, including
 the warrant for the arrest of Paladiui ; and I at once, on the same day,
 dictated the letter to the foreign office which is herein marked inclosure
 No. 1, inclosing the papers and demanding the extradition of Paladini.
   It being obviously important to secure the arrest of the fugitive with-
 out delay, I delivered the letter with its inclosures to Mr. Crispi on'
the
 afternoon of that day in person, and called his attention to the urgency
 of the matter, and to the danger that Paladini might be informed of the
                                                             1037
