News of Mr. Hay's Death Comes as
Washington, July 1.Notable as a
statesman and diplomat, whose official
activities brought him conspicuously be
fore the public for many years, the
news of the death of Secretary Hay at
his summer home on Lake Sunapee,
New Hampshire, was received here with
evidences of the most profound regret.
Altho aware of the delicate condition
of Mr. Hav's health, there was a gen

Hampshire mountains would in a meas

The latest reports received here yes
teidav fiom Mrs. Hay and from other
sources were of a reassuring nature, and
for this reason the announcement of his
death came as a sudden and painful
surprise to Washington.
Mr. Hay never was of robust consti

able to keep in fairlv good health.
Every summer he sought partial relief
from official duties bv spending sev

SfWpg^JK^gJJ Saturday Evening, THE MINNEAPOLIS |0BNAL. 'J(ilf
Oyster Bay, L. I., July 1.Presi-
dent Boosevelt sent the following
message to Mrs. Hay:
"Mrs. John Hay, Lake Sunapee:
I cannot believe the dreadful news.
Pray accept our deepest sympathy
in your terrible bereavement. I do
not know what to say to express
this true with achievements of diplo
macy, which properly proceed with
quietness and in deliberation. Only the
largei affairs are of such a character
as to summon popular attention. Hence
it is that the country, highly as it may
regard John Hay, late secretary of
state, has not yet come to think of
him as will the historian of the future
who writes the doings of these times.
Mr. Hay had negotiated not fewer
than fifty treaties during his term of
office. He had settled practically all
our outstanding disagreements with
Great Britain, closing, ior the present
at least, an exceedingly important
chapter in our diplomacy. More im
portant still, he had assumed a posi
tion of leadership among the ministers
of foreign affairs of the world 111 the
diplomacy of the far east by the de
velopment of a poliey of most far
reaching consequences. No candid critic
can fail to see that mjost of the epoch
making accomplishments of the McKin
ley-Roosevelt administrations are com
prehended in John Hay's diplomacy.
Such achievements deserve moie than
passing notice from current observers.
His Early Work.
Mr. Hay came to the state deoart
ment in September, 1898, at the close
of the Spanish war. He had served as
ambassador at London for little more
than a year, besides having had former
diplomatic experiences in Paris, Ma
drid and Vienna. Mr. Hay had little
to do with the treaty of peace with
Spain. On returning to Washington,
he applied himself diligently, with the
corps under him, to the completion of
many routine matters, the settlement of
which was announced in each case by
the briefest telegraphic paragraph,
which was soon forgotten. For exam
ple, he negotiated a series of extradi
tion treaties, many of which have al
ready been ratified by the senate. These
made it practically impossible for a
criminal from the United States to find
resting place in any civilized country.
A Great Settler of Claims.
Another important class of treaties
negotiated by Mr. Hay, of which the
country knows little, are those arising
from claims of citizens of the United
States against foreign countries. He
has settled more of these claims than
any of his predecessors. Nor are these
matters of inteiest exclusively to the
immediate claimant they increase
American prestige. All such amicable
settlements strengthen the influences
tending toward arbitration. Among
these treaties was one for the submis
sion of the Pius fund dispute to the
permanent tribunal at The Hague,
where it became the first case ever pre
sented to that organization. It was
settled in favor of the United States.
In several instances the disagreements
have been adiusted by arbitrators per
sonally selected, as in the Salvadorean
claims, which were arbitrated Wash
ington. The Samoan claims were set
tled, involving a tripartite agreement
among Great Britain. Germany and the
United States, by aibitration.
When the "Venezuelan troubles arose
the United States had to meet Iital,
Germanv, Great Britain and other Eu
ropean governments, which had claims
against Venezuela, resulting in the
bombardment and threatening serious
trouble. Mr. Hay's attitude in the af
fair indicated to everybodv concerned
that he did not purpose to overstep the
bounds of commonsense in upholding
the Monroe doctrine. There was no
lack of backbone, he took a dignified
course which has since been entirely
instified by the results. When the
claims came up for detailed settlement
this government participated in pro
tecting the interests of its own citizens,
and also joined in an agreement to
submit the question of preferential
treatment to The Hague Tribunal, thus
getting another case there, and so in
creasing the momentum in favor of
international arbitration. It is hard
to 6*0 more than catalog these diplo
matic achievements an article of
newspaper limitations. But the mere
recital bv name of the more important
treaties and agreements will recall to
the well-informed reader's mind the
longer storv that preceded the final
and happy solution.
A Half Century Annoyance.
Secretary Hay's greatest achieve
ment in diplomacy on this hemisphere
came in securing the repeal of the
Clayton-Bulwer treaty, which had been
a persistent cause of trouble and mis
understanding for the greater part of
the half century of its life, threaten
ing to prove a weapon in the hands
of England haters for involving the
two countries in war. The more "ag-
gressively American" statesmen al
ways took the view that the Clayton
Bulwer treaty was dead until they got
into positions of responsibilty, when
they could not longer think so. The
unfortunate agreement bound t^e
United States and Great Britain LO
act together in the control of an mter
oceanic canal. This was always gaKng
to American pride.
So great an achievement as the re
moval of this obstruction Mr. Hay did
not make on his first attempt. The
first of his treaties failed to secure the
approval of the senate. This was a
piactical defeat, even tho the disau
proval of the senate is often a compli
ment with right-thinking people. The
second Hay-Pauncefote treaty proved
an illustration of how slight and non
essential modifications may disarm
"jingoistic opposition. Both treaties
were negotiated on the principle of the
absolute neutrality of an isthmian
canal. The senate did not like the
provision of the first treaty inviting
all nations to guarantee the canal
neutrality, and they also amended it to
such an extent that it was promptly
reiected by Great Britain. Mr. Hay
then went to work in his quiet way
and using as an argument with Great
Britain the advantage to the maritime
interests of the world that would fol
low our efforts, persuaded England to
withdraw its privileges under the Clay
ton-Bulwer treatv and agree to let the
United States act alone in controlling
and policing the canal.
Treaty with Colombia.
In pursuance of the second Hav
Pauncefote instrument, which perma
nently cleared the way for a canal
uniting the oceans, a treaty was nego
tiated with Colombia. It was entirelv
fair and liberal to that republic! and Er*rl'f
at the same time so drawn as to merit I ch\ 5hJ =1 11
the necessary two- thrids. vote in the ^ll\*L3iYnS??mi
senate. There the sentiment in favor ^.V?^}'^/
of another canal route was so strong as
to make the opposition eager for rea
sons of attack. This made the negotia
tion of the treaty a peculiarly delicate
matter, and one over which Mr. Hay
was often much discouraged. Colorm
bia, after making the treaty, failed to
ratify it. Then came the Panama in
cident, and the treaty with the new
republic, all of which is fresh in tho

The Eastern Policy.
When the Boxer troubles broke out
in China, Mr. Hay showed a far sight
edn'ess not shared by the minister of
foreign affairs of any other country.
The legations were cut off and most
discouraging reports were gaining pos
session of the public mind the world
oyer. Mr. Hay took the optimistic
view. He accepted as credible what
limited assurances came out of China
as to the safety of the legations and
of a disposition on' the part of the im
perial government to defend them as
it could under the circumstances. He
refused to believe that all the ministers
had been assassinated or to take any
action on thta basis, thinking that more
could be accomplished by cultivating
China's good will than by antagonizing
her. When the time came for settling
up accounts he remained China's friend
and in that capacity threw himself
across the path of any proposed par
tition of the old empire. The European
governments which had been compelled
to go into Peking for the protection
of their legations certainly had cause
for complaint and perhaps some excuse
for adopting a policy of territorial
aggrandizement. But Mr. Hay having
found an opportunity, must emphatic
ally make the most of it." In dealing
with the situation he laid emphasis
upon our desire for the maintenance of
the open-door policy. He not only ac
complished the first legitimate object
of any interventionthe protection of
our commercial interests in China
but by his manner of doing it he was
able to prevent partition. His right to
interfere grew out of the fact that the
interests of the Un'ited States in China,
with all the commercial rights and priv
ileges of our citizens there, were based
on treaty stipulation. The spheres of
influence established there by European
nations had acquired such power by
concessions made by the imperial gov
ernment that they might have estab
lished'in the territories "leased" to
them their own customhouses for the
collection of revenue, an"d in time grad
ually absorbed most qf the agencies of
government. Secretarv Hay opposed
this plan at its inception, maintaining
that the Chinese should exercise the
duties of territorial ownership such as
the collection of revenue. He also de
manded equal rights for the citizen of
the United States with those of sub
jects to GermaWy in the German sphere
influence, and with British subjects in
the British sphere, etc., and secured
America and China.

apply to all merchandise at all such
ports within these spheres of influences,
except at the free ports, without refer
ence to nationality, and that the duties
levied in pursuance of this plan should
be collected by the Chinese govern1
ment. The effect of these requirements
was to keep the Chinese in control of
their own territory.
It was also stipulated that there
should be no harbor dues for the ships
of any other country than for those of
the nation occupying any given sphere
of influence. Freights "were to be at

Russia and Mr. Kay.
Among the governments to agree to
this proposal of Mr. Hay's for the
open-door policy was Russia. As a
result of Russian intervention at the
time of the Boxer riots and the friction
growing out of them, it came to pass
that Russia occupied Manchuria. Get
ting into this territory and obtaining
the whip hand over the Chinese gov
ernment, the Russians went to work to
make the Chinese agiee to confer cer
tain privileges upon them, that would
have been exclusive in Manchuria, tf
they had succeeded in accomplishing
this they would have voided their prom
ise to maintain an open-door policy.
When this became so appaient that the
whole woild was fairly convinced as
to Russia's policy in Manchuria, Mr.
Hay pointed out the fact that any
agreement bv which China conceded to
Russia, or any Russian corporation or
company, exclusive rights or privi
leges in opening mines or building rail
roads, or the like, must be regarded as a
serious matter by the United States.
He could not say how other govern
ments would regard it, but did empha
size the principle that the negotiation
of a monopoly by Russia with China
was a breach of the stipulation between
China and the foreign powers and a
breach of Russia's promise regarding
the open door.
The Russian Purpose.
From Mr. Hay's intervention both
Russia and China felt obliged to con
form to the requirements of the trea
ties between China and other countries
that would have been otherwise seri
ously compromised, if not rendered al
together nugatory. The suggestion
that Russia and China [were on the
point of an agreement hyi which Russia
would get such monopolies gave him a
perfectly legitimate cause of appre
hension on behalf of the citizens of the
United States. As a result of this pro
test, the governments of Russia and
of China put their heads together and
concluded that they would say tlv
they were not making any such efforts,
that China was not on the point of
granting, or Russia of demanding, spe
cial privileges and, further, that Rus
sia had no disposition to close Man
churia to the trade of other countries.
It was also said to be the Russian
purpose, after safeguarding the inter
ests of her own citizens in Manchuria
and seeing that apprehensions were
quieted, to get out of the country. This
is what the newspapers discussed as
the "pledge" given by Russia to the
United States that she would evacu
ate Manchuria on Oct. 8. Russia did
not make a pledge- in so many words,
but did give the American government
to understand that this was her plan.
What the Russians substantially said
was that they intended to get out of
Manchuria, that they did not intend to
secure any monopolies or concessions
there to the exclusion of any other na
tion, and that their control there was
solely in the interests of their own sub
jects. This, of course, taken in good
faith, clinched the open-door policy and
afforded for a time a bulwark against
any combination of powers intending to
divide China. When Russia neglected
to keep her "pledge," the Japanese
war began to compel her to do so.
The Jewish Persecutions.
Another Russian relation was the
subject of considerable misapprehen
sion, and that was the Kishinef affair.
The United States, according to some
newspapers, actually did present a copy
of the petition concerning the outrages
to the Russian foreign secretary, and
thus, by a diplomatic trick, this gov
ernment did get the knowledge 01 its
contents before the Russian officials
ing of the kind. A copy off the peti_
tion was sent in order that the Russian
foreign secretary might look at it be
fore he decided whether he would un
dertake to present it to the czar, or
accept it in any way. even unofficially.
He did not even look at the contents
of the petition, because he was per
fectly familiar with them, as was the
czar, long before the secretary of state
sent those instructions to St. Peters
burg. The Russian government had ac
cess to its text from our newspapers
long before we transmitted it. This
was merely a frank way of presenting
the situation: "Here is a petition
will you accept it or not This* rela

religionists in Russia. The whole civil
ized world had been shocked by the
performances of the Russian peasants,
and protests naturally spring from
every humane impulse. But the govern
ment of the United States had no
means of bringing this matter officially
before Russia except by such overtures.
There was nr way of getting a peti
tion to the czar except thru the depart
ment of state. All that it could do was
to see if consent to receive the peti
tion could be obtained.
A short time before that the condi
tion of the Jews in Rumania became
so serious that the secretary of state
took up the subject by the only chan
nel from which he could approach it.
He had no authority to intervene to
ameliorate the condition of the Ruma
nian Jews,, but he did have a right to
remonstrate against a condition of af
fairs that might turn a tide of unde
sirable immigration to the United
States, including many thousands of
people who, on account of their own
misfortunes, would not be admissible
under our laws. This was a measure of
gelf-defense. These things are inci
dents, worth mentioning only as show
ing something of the tone of dealing
with foreign affairs which has charac
terized the Hay administration.
The Alaskan Boundary.
Another thing that Secretary Hay ac
complishedsettlement of the Alaskan
boundary questionis too fresh in the
public mind to need more than a pass
ing reference. Our outstanding sources
of dispute with Great Britain are prac
tically settled. The next secretary of
state will find much les3 on his hands
than any predecessor in a long while.
"Frankness" in Diplomacy.
The main principle of Secretary
Hay's diplomacy was frankness. He
had no sympathy with the old school,
which believed that a diplomat could
sometimes tell the truth with safety be
cause no one would believe it. Instead,
he proceeded frankly and honestly,
thinking out great American policies in
such a way as to compel their support
from other countries. The selection of
John Hay for secretary of state turned
out one of the great strokes of Presi
dent McKinlev's administration. Keep

JOHN HAY'S UCFB
Born in Indiana in 1838Friend Of
Lincoln and McKinley.
John Hay, author and diplomatist,
was born at Salem, Ind7, Oct. 8, 1838.
His ancestors were Scottish, Graduating
from Brown university in Rhode Island
in 1856, he studied law at Springfield,
111., was admitted to the bar in 1861,
but never practiced.
He was called to Washington as as
sistant secretary to President Lincoln
in 1861 and was with the president
constantly except for a period when he
served on the staff of General Hunter
as aide-de-eamp with the rank of major.
He was brevetted colonel.
After the death of President Lincoln,
Mr. Hay entered the diplomatic service
first as secretary of legation at Paris,
1865-67 then at Madrid, 1869-1870,
with an interval as charge d'affaires at
Vienna. From 1870 to 1875 he was con
nected in an editorial capacity with,the
New York Tribune.
In 1875 he settled in Cleveland, Ohio,
and took an active part in republican
iolitics. He was first assistant secre
of state from 1879 to 1881. After
that he had his home in the District of
Columbia. President McKinlev, upon
his inauguration, appointed Mr. Hay
ambassador to England, where he re
"mained until called home to assume the
portfolio of state, which he held until
the time of his death.
He received degrees of A.M. and
LL.D. at Yale, Princeton and Western
