New York, March 30.The' opposition

was always hostile to Archbishop Ireland

saved him from harm at the hands of the
crowd. H e was locked up in the police

The injured, woman is Mrs. Mary Gu

last night the physicians" at the hospital
to which she had been? removed refused
to hold out any certain hopes of her re

bones could bet set. Internal injuries also
are feared. The 'physicians, at first were
in favor of amputating the arm, but de

It Has Not Been Well Received in
Washington, ' March 30. President
Roosevelt and Admiral Dewey had a short
conference regarding the interview of thet
admiral In which' he , extolled the United
States navy and used the German navy
as an illustration of the difference In or
ganization between our navy and those of
Baron Sternburg, the German minister,
has been uneasy over this interview and
he is said to desire authority to explain
to the emperor that it had no significance
of ill will. The president will authorize
him to do that for this government, for
Admiral Dewey frankly says he did not
single out Germany for criticism, but used
the German .navy, simply as an illustration
of the weakness of European navies in at
tempting to operate on this side of the'
Atlantic against our own navy.
The life of the German minister is not
an easy one here, owing to the free criti
cism, of Germany by the American press
and the sensitiveness of the German em -
peror to such criticism. The kaiser has
been making all sorts of efforts to show
his friendliness to the United States, and
his representatives complain that they are
always balked in some way.
