Wash in'oton. Dec. 10. That the official
conduct of James M. Sullivan, Minister
to Santo Pomlngo. has already been the
subject of Investigation by Secretary
Itryan was established beyond doubt here
The result was not nt all favorable to
Minister Sullivan. As a result the man
sclecwd by the State Department to be
recommended to the Dominican (Jovern
meiit for appointment as Director of Public
Works under that liovernmcnt Is one who
never has seen Minister Sullivan and Is
not acquainted vt ith those with whom the
Minister has been closely associated In
political matters In New York and vi
rility. Mr. Ilrvau will recommend for the
place A. J. Collctt. son-in-law of J. C.
Ilahlman. former Mayor of Omaha. Neb.
Mr. Collctt Is an engineer. He has been
with the I'nlon Pacific Hallroad for
thlity-three years and has been Indorsed
for the Dominican post. The salary Is
$,000 :i .tear.
Thin appointment was brought about
when a report reached Mr. Hryan of the
actlvltiis of Mr. Sullivan on hi half of a
friend whom he was suppoitlns for the
Dominican post. It was represented to
Mr. Hrati that the activities of Minister
Sullivan since his arrival nt Santo Do
inlngo city last Miminer had been largely
responsible for the resignation of J. I..
Mann, who was then Director of Public
Mr. Mann was regarded as highly effi

It was this tendency upon the pan of

which was largely responsible for Di
