Dismissal of Ambassador
Was Justified
Certain Fact* Carefully Suppressed
by Complainant���Makes General Denial of Charges.
Washington, 1). C. 13.���President
Koosevelt has made public the letters
addressed to Secretory of Statu Root,
giving correspondence between tne
president and roriner Ambassador
Storer at Vienna, and Mrs. Storer. 111
whicli he says that Mr. Slorer in re-
rusing to answer his loiters and the
publication or various private letters
Justified the ambassador's removal;
tbat Mr. Storer's publication or private correspondence waB peculiarly
uugentlemanly, and that he (the president! hal stated with absolute clearness bis position,, that It was out of
the question for him, as president, to
try to have any archbishop made cardinal, despite bis admiration for Archbishop Ireland, ae well as for leaders
of olher religious denominations.
He says he thinks lt well that tne
members of the cabinet should know
certain facts, "which bo (Mr. btorerj
either suppresses or misstates." lie
Bays lie did not resent the action 01
the Storers "until ll became evident
thai they were likely to damage American interests. He says Mrs. Storer
urged him to give ber husband a cabinet place, and thnt she stated that Mr.
Choate, at Loudon, and Oeneral Porter, at Paris, were not proper persons
to ue ambassadors, and suggested ner
husband relative to those posts 01
Tbe president incorporated a letter
rrom Postmaster General Cortelyon
contradictory to the statement that
President McKinley had commissioned
a gentleman to ask the pope "as a personal ravor to him*' to appoint Archbishop Ireland as cardinal. Mr. Cor-
telyou says that tbe late president
never made any such request, 'the
president dt'clares that Mr. Storer's
statement that he authorized any
such message to be delivered to I'opo
Plus Is untrue. He says that he
never received a letter rrom Ambassador Storer giving au account or his
visit to the Vatican, and the message
he personally gave the pope on Denati
of Mr. Roosevelt.

lows the publication of "the confidential pamphlet" which Mr. Storer last

Police Report Infractions.
PariB, Dec. 13.���There was an impressive response this morning to the
clergy's appeal to their parishoners to

Dame, Dame deB Victories, St. uer-
niain, and Le Auxerrols, where the signal for the massacre of St. Bartholomew was given out.
in St. Roch everywhere the trout
gates are closed, but worshippers entered through the side porch. Buildings were well filled and in several
places there was music, but nowhere
was there any attempt to interfere
with tbe services or create disturbances, There were three policemen
standing outside the porches of the
churches to prevent disorder, while policemen in plain clothes on duty Inside
simply noted the Infractions of the law
with the object of making reports to
the Justices of the peace.

Hon. R. F. Greta Asked to Consider Reeds of Agriculture-
Want Road and Bridge.
The next forward step in the career
of Nelson as a commercial centre u
admitted by all wbo have given tne
matter attention to be the Improvement of means of access for the already large and fast growing agricultural population In the valleys of the
lower Kootenay and Slocan rivers.
Railways alone have never been
lound adequate for communication ano
transportation of the character required  for short distances.
Already a fair wagon road extends
westward from the city on the souin
bank of the river for over nine miles.
Whal is now required is a similar
road on the north shore for tbe balance
ot the distance to the Columbia river,
with a branch road up the valley 01
tbe Slocan, and finally a bridge across
the river at the Granite Narrows to
connect with the present road.
The improvements are urgently needed and would afford a splendid stimulus to the agricultural Industry of tne
Tbe prospective development of the
Uuoen Victoria copper mines, aud 01
valuable timber limits In the vicinity
of Beasley Siding, afford additional
reasons for the immediate construction of such bridge and roads.
A petition to the Hon. R. F. Ureen,
chief commissioner or lands and works
asking for such work to be done ae
early as possible has been prepared by
C. D. W. Bellamy of Thrums, and has
been ln circulation since November 2B.

which musl at least have convinced lis
readers of the fondness of that paper
tor moot liy and mealy sentences, lt
has thereby turniBhed a splendid modern illustration oi" that old adage,
"When tbe eat Is away lhe kittens can

raise issues. We pointed "tn tlial in
1K78 Sir John A. Macdonald ralBed an
issue and carried the country and that
in 18116 Sir Wilfrid Laurier did the
same. We pointed out that the government would appeal lo the country
un its record and on such further issues as it may determine to raise. The
morning paper chooses to ignore tlie

Underlying all its attempted veins or
The astounding offer of Mr. W. Lt
Boyce of Chicago to take over and operate the postal service of the Unlteu
States under government control will
strike the average business man aim
suggest a train of reflection whicn
Will not stop short at hasty conclusions. Tlie assurance that Mr. Boyce
ls backed by $50,1100,(10(1 of capital, a
sum whicli should appear ample, shows
that he and his associales have not
made the proposal in a hasty spirit,
but thut it has evidently been wen
thought out. Tbe guarantee to reduce
the rate ol postage o.i second-class
matter, to liquidate the deficit annually occurring in the operation of the
service, to wipe It out and afterwara
to pay Into the United Stales treasury
all the profits accruing over 7 per cent,
are projects which in themselves must
bave engaged the calculations of these
manipulators of high finance.
The further willingness to place tne
operation of the postal service tinder
the authority of a postal commission
which shall have, as far as lhat service is concerned, the same powers as
the interstate commerce commission,
is evidence of bona fides and but adds
zest to the query which will be askeu
nj to what Is defective with the management ol Uio service as now conducted  under federal  control?
We cannot well assume that the jiro-
posal is wholly philanthropies!, as a
corporation formed exclusively to enter
the realms of philanthropy even on a
national scale would be the eighth or
ninth wonder of the world. lt Mr.
Boyce is to be taken seriously it woum
appear that there is a growing distrust
ol those commercial methods winch
are essentially speculative in their
character, such as stock dealing and
the chances of ritictuating markets,
and it growing desire ou the part oi
many who are now more or less actively involved in these speculative
methods to find a field for their energies and talents in some sale and utilitarian employment which will yield
ample returns and afford a sphere lor
the indulgence of the greatest abilities
In the organization and direction oi
gigantio enterprises, We are often told
ihat the multimillionaire continues the
snuggle with the fickle goddess or for-
lune long arter the most absurd contingencies of lire have been provided
ugalnsf and all for the pleasure there
is in tbc game.
May It be that Mr. Iloyce and his
associates are about to Initiate a pioneer method or exploiting shrewd business faculties and that they propose
to open the door to a new sphere ot
enterprises lor those who have guts
for organization and manipulation lhat
are far beyond the common possession? Such an outcome or the proposal
would revolutionize modern commercial and economic lire, lt would introduce Into the present economic systems a new element which might appreciably hasten the dawn or nn entirely new set ol conditions among
men and between nations.
