RESIGNS HIS POST
News Comes as a Surprise to
Oflicials of State Depart
ment' at Washington.
PARIS. Jan. 11. Robert Bacon, em
bassador of the United States at Paris,
today confirmed the report of his resig
nation. Mr. Bacon said that he wished to
make it. plain that his work at Harvard
would be acllvo service, which would
take practically all his time; that alone
necessitated the giving up of the em
bussadorship, which he naturally surren
dered with rrgrd.
MV. Eacon's departure will bi greatly
regret Led by the American colony in
Paris, where he had made himself ex
tremely popular, and in diplomatic cir
cles, wheic lib qualities are highly ap
preciated. WASHINGTON. Jan. 11. News of Mr.
Uacon's resignation came as a surprise
to officials of the state department and
o White house officials, who had not
hesitated to discredit the first rumors of
the resignation based upon the election
of Mr- Bacon yesterday to the Harvard
university board of overseers,
Mr. Dacon's letter of resignation had
not reached President Tnft tonight It
was recalled today that during his brief
vi3it to this country last summer Mr.
Bacon indicated to some of his friends
tiiat he had become wearied because of
the social requirements of the Paris em
bassy. It was also noted that .T, P, Morgan,
who arrived in Paris a. few days ago,
was a guest of the embassador, and those
who recalled the fact that. Mr. Bacon
formerly was associated with the finan
cier in business were quick to' sense a
possible renewal of the old tinicp. The
news came so suddenly that there was
scarcely tiino today to develop the poten
tial strength of the embassadors of lesser
station and the various American minis
ters who, by right of seniority, might as
pire to fill the vacancy to be caused by
Mr. Bacon's retirement. Of the outsid
ers, the name of Otto Kannard of New
York was the first to be broached in con
nection with tho vacancy.
Secretary Stlmson's name also was
mentioned and Jn the slate department
itself thero waa some talk of Assistant
Secretary Huntington Wilson.

One startling development was the dis
covery that full sets of books of the dif

scrutinized by one or more grand juries
have disappeared. Those of 'Morris & Co.,
which were returned to that company In
1000, were swallowed up by the great
vaults In tho company's office and have
not been seen since. Tho packers were
actually surprised, they say. to find upon
investigation a few days ago that cart
loads of these books have disappeared
Into thin air.
Harry A. Tintmlnj, chief accountant
for Morris & Co., was the last witness of
the day. He said he kept the records
of tlie two sorts of costs which arc used
in tho business of the company, the one
the memorandum cost, which Is used as
a basis in selling beef, and the other the
bookkeeping' cost, which Is used as the
