may be taken by the Spanish Government in their reply to the protest of the
consul-general. In the meantime, * * * I think I had better receive from
the Department instructions either to proceed directly through the ministry
of state in this matter or to await further developments, as your judgment
may decide.

 SIR: Continuing the report to the Department made by myself in my dispatch
No. 634, bearing date February 26, 1902, concerning the action of the Spanish
authorities in the case of Mr. Antonio Gisbert y Bayot, I have the honor
to transnuit herewith copy of an official letter received this morning from
the consul-general at Barcelona. 
 * * * * * 
I have, etc., 
Mr. Lay to Mr. Storer. 
Barcelona, March 1, 19O~. 
 Sin: Referring to my letters of the 10th and 14th ultimo, relating to the
case of enlistment in the Spanish army of Antonio Gisbert y Bayot, I have
now the honor to report the receipt of two letters of the 27th and 28th February
from the "Comision Mixta" of Barcelona, informing me that until Gisbert and
his mother can show their actual place of residence on the 11th April, 1899,
the date of ratification of the treaty of peace, tIme said Gisbert can not
leave Barcelona without depositing 1,500 pesetas with the civil governor.
 Although Gisbert has diplomas and registers from the schools and colleges
in Manila showing that he attended these colleges regularly between 1892
and March, 1900, and the certificate of registration issued by the Unite(1
States military authorities in Manila to his mother and himself, his mother
does not seem to be able to produce satisfactory evidence that she resided
in Manila on the above-mentioned date. She sails to-day for Manila and will
send from there the necessary proofs of residence to her son here, who expects
they will reach him in time to get away in three months. 
 I have, etc., JULIUS U. LAY. 
Air. blay to Air. Storer. 
    Washington, ]Jiarch 10, 1902. 
 SIR: I inclose a copy of No. 208, of the 18th ultimo, from the United States
consul-general at Barcelona. 
 It appears from this dispatch that one Antonio Gisbert y Bayot, a native
inhabitant of the Philippine Islands, presented on November 27 last to the
consul-general a certificate of registration issued to him on January 1,
1900, by the United States military authorities at Manila.
