No. 61.1                              DEPARTMENT OF STATE,
                                           Washington, March 27, 1888.
   SIR : In your No. 121, of January 20 last, you inform          the Department
that one Walter E. Bartel made application to you for a passport, alleg-
ing that he was a naturalized citizen of the United States, of German
birth, recently residing at Bayonne, N. J., and that he had lost his cer-
tificate of naturalization. Mr. Bartel not being able to furnish due
proof to supply this loss, you properly declined to issue the passport.
   Afterwards the applicant produced the affidavits of two American
 sea-captains who, you state, were well known to the consul Of the
 United States as good and true men.            In these affidavits the affiants
 declared that they knew Mr. Bartel was a naturalized citizen under the
 laws of the State of New York, and that his representations were true.
   You then issued the passport, and now ask the judgment of the De-
 partment on the propriety of your action.
   The fact to be shown was the issuance by a competent court of rec.
 ord of a decree of naturalization.       It seems very improbable that these
 sea-captains could swear to that fact or that their testimony was other
 than hearsay or belief. The evidence on which you granted the pass-
 port has not been submitted, and the Department is consequently not
 in a position to decide the question authoritatively, bat the statements
 made in your dispatch create a presumption that your action was im-
 provident.
   Your full report, with copies of the affidavits, will, however, be
 awaited.
        I am, etc.,                                     T. F. BAYARD.
