asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the two natives, Nekaka and Mantu, who accompanied Mr. Bowskill as peace envoys and acted as interpreters for him during his efforts to secure peace from the rebels at San Salvador, have been thrown into prison; and, if so, can he say upon what charge these men have been arrested?
