It     appears   that  the  local  police  searched  the consulate  and  seized  certain  papers.    Servra   demands   the  dismissal  and  further  punishment of  the chief  of  police,   and   that  an official  visit  be paid to the consulate by the governor  of Monastir,   with  an   expression  of regret  on  the part of     the  government for the occurrence.
