From the Chargé in Germany

Despatch from the Consul General at Stuttgart (text printed)
inquiring whether naturalization treaties between United
States and Baden and Württemberg, prior to formation of
German Empire, are considered in force.
To the Ambassador in Germany

Information that these treaties were not renewed after the
World War as provided by treaty and were, therefore, no longer
in force after May 11, 1922; that Department has refrained
from expressing an opinion on the status of treaties with
Germany from April 6, 1917, to May 11, 1922; that, however,
the treaties with Baden and Württemberg were applicable to
women naturalized in those countries.

Tom explosion case on grounds of newly discovered evidence,
and other reasons.

(Footnote: Information of filing in Kingsland case

January 22.)
Jan. 15 Memorandum by the Assistant Secretary of State

Conversation with the German Ambassador, who expressed
concern over the motion by Mr. Bonynge, V. S. Agent, for
retrial of the Black Tom case, as it opened the way for retrial
of other cases; his desire to end the matter quickly by sending
for Mr. Boyden, Umpire for the Mixed Claims Commission,

as had been suggested by the Under Secretary of State. Undated From the German Embassy to the Department of State (Rec'd

Opinion that the procedure in the Black Tom case was Jan. 15) | regular and in accordance with agreement of August 10, 1922,

and with the Rules of the Commission. Jan. 16 Memorandum by the Solicitor for the Department of State

Suggestion by the Counselor of the German Embassy that Mr. Boyden arrive earlier to facilitate a disposal of the petition before the German Agent's departure on January 21; his opinion that German Government will cooperate with any request for interpretation of claims agreement; solicitor's opinion that early hearing will be desirable but that disposition

should be left to the Commission. Jan. 17 Memorandum by the Assistant Secretary of State

Conversation with the German Ambassador, who was informed that Department was requesting Mr. Boyden's earlier arrival in Washington and that the Commission itself should decide on the question of procedure.

(Footnote: Arrival of Mr. Boyden on January 19.) Jan. 22 Memorandum by the Secretary of State

Conversation with the German Ambassador, who was advised that the Department's practice was to leave all control to the U. S. Agent and that it was hoped the Commission would settle the question of procedure, but that everything would be

done to expedite settlement. July 1 From the Agent for the United States

Notification of the filing of supplemental petition for re

hearing on basis of new evidence. Nov. 18 Memorandum by the Under Secretary of State of a Telephone Con

versation With the German Ambassador, November 17, 1931 Information that German Government concurs in the agreement reached in Washington, that appointment of an umpire is unnecessary at the moment, as the Commissioners might reach an agreement without one, but, in any case, prompt decision on the appointment would be easy.

(Footnote: Death of Mr. Boyden, October 25, 1931; appointment of Owen J. Roberts, of U. $. Supreme Court, March 24, 1932.)
