Washington West's will; which was
contested on the ground that before
his death he had nought to revoke the
will by running pencil marks through
his signature, hag been .admitted to
probate by Probate Judge Crews. Dr.
West died suddenly August "7, 1903,
leaving an estate valued at $200, 000.
Judge Crews holds that- although
the pencil marks indicated that the
testator had intended revoking the
will he had not carried his- intention
far enough to justify a legal ruling to
that effect. .- ¦ , ..
The will bequeathed $750 to . his
housekeeper, Miss Maude Josephson;

ST. LOUIS, May 19.— The National
Editorial Association held its final ses
sion this afternoon. The forenoon was
devoted to addresses and the afternoon :
to election of officers and the comple
tion of routine business. *C'>' ;
Colonel - Henrv Watterson of ¦ Louis
ville, on "The Editorial Page," said, in
part: . .
The editorial page is valuable In the degree
that It aids the reader to digest the news. It
should either b« reformed or abandoned. Un
der a certain opell which has crept upon the
modern newspaper It is becoming, if it has not
already become,- a rather useless appendage — '
not even ornamental. I
Disinterestedness- being the soul, good humor
is the solar system of the editorial page, which
should be held subject to these precepts:
Write of a man nothing you would not say'
to his face and might not say in the hearing of
decent people. ' . . ¦ • ¦ , ' ~ '-
..Avoid equally intimation . and Intimidation,
making no^ suggestion you are not prepared to
reduce to assertion and to sustain with proof.
The "leading article," being the rationale of
the most Important and interesting piece of the
day's news, should have a beginning, a middle
and an end; should be concise and Incisive,
seeking to assist tne reader, In hi* effort to
comprehend the situation.
| Satire should keep within the bounds of ' the j
probable; wit under the restraint of sense, and
even Invective — shorn of adjective and adverb. .
and stripped " to the waist — should strike out
from the shoulder to hit only above the belt. i
The pert paragraph should be allowed to die 1
a natural death: No flowers.
The editorial page thus conceived and exe- |
cuted. thu3 Inspired and partitioned, could not ;
fall to Impress Itself upon the thought of the
time, at once a power and a feature, an arm
of the service and a commercial asset.

Following the Council o'f Ministers.
Foreign Minister Delcasse telegraphed
to M. Nisard. asking for full details Qf
the protest pent by the Pope to the
foreign powers. It Is expected that the
answer will Dermlt final action to be
taken on his recall within a day or
two.
PARIS. May 19.— The Council of Min
isters assembled in extraordinary ses
sion to-day to consider the action to
be taken relative to the Pope's protest
against President Loubefs visit to
Rome. As the version of the protest
forwarded to the governments having
relations with the Vatican differ from
that forwarded to the French Govern
ment, it was decided to first ascertain
definitely what representations th«»
Vatican made to the foreign govern
ments. The Council also agreed on the
steps to be, taken when the exact char
acter of the protest is ascertained.
The recall of Nisard. the Embassador
of France to the Vatican, has been de
cided upon, if the authenticity of the
protest "forwarded to the foreign pow
ers is established. This practically aa
sures the Embassador's recall, as little
or no doubt exists relative to the pro
test. • '«
It is stated in official circles that the
recall of M. Nisard does not mean the
complete severance of diplomatic rela
tions with the Vatican, but the in
definite suspension of M. Nisard's ser
vice. Besides an Embassador, France
has a Minister at the Vatican. Count de
Navenne. who will continue to carry
out formal business.

Value of .Editorial Page
The final speech was made by A.
Monproflt, correspondent of Le Figaro,
Paris.
At the conclusion of the address Sir
Hugh Gilzean Reid of London, pres
ident of the press parliarhent, was in
troduced by Chairman King as presid
ing officer of the convention. He was
applauded and spoke briefly. The con
vention adjourned until to-morrow
morning. v ";r:
With there miraculous facilities, with this
unlimited power, comes also an enormoug re
epcnt=lbility In the face of God and man. I
am not here to preach to you a Bosnel whose
le»;sons are known to you far better than to
me. I am not calling sinners to repentence,
but I am following a good tradition in stirring
up the pure minds of the righteous by way
of remembrance. It is well for us to reflect
on the' vast Import,' the endless chain cf' re
eulttt, of that globe-encircling speech you ad
dress each day to the world. Your winged
words have no fixed flight; like the lightning,
tlH-y traveree the ether according to laws of
their own. They lljrht in every clime; they
Influence i thousand different varieties of
mind* and manners. How vastly important
Is It, then, that the sentiments they convey
st:r*uld be tho*? of good will rather than of
malevolence, those of national .concord rather
than of prejudice, those of peace rather than
ol hostility. The temptation to the contrary
Is almost irresistible. I acknowledge with
ccntrltlon how often I have fallen by the way.
It is far more amusing to attack than to
defend, to excite than to soothe. But the
highest victory of great power is that of self
restraint, and It would be a beneficent result
of this memorable meeting, thta ecumenical
ccundl of the pres?. If It taught us all— the
brethren of thi» mighty priesthood — that mu
tual knowledge of each other which should
midtfy prejudice*, restrain acerbity of thought
and expression, and tend In some degree to
brlr.ff In that blessed time . " . . •¦ :

convened to-night in Festival Hall.
Thousands of visitors thronged the

Address as Representative
of President Roosevelt
Secretary Hay Delivers an
Afl-houeh I>pckstader*s destination is
rot knov.n it is presumed that he went
to Now York.
Dockstader with three friends quiet
ly came to town Wednesday and spent
the day preparing for the act they car
ried out this morning. Shortly after
the occurrence the whole party left for
parts unknown.
Major Sylvester. Chief of Police, sent
out . telegraphic inquiries toy several
• ¦lties this evening. among them
New York, and possibly Dockstad
*»r rnay have to make some ex
planations, although it is not thought
probable that any action will be taken
unless the pictures should be exhibited
with the statement that the man who
assisted the negro was actually the
President.
Buttons and photographs have been
freely circulated throughout the South
for the last few months representing
the President at the dinner table with
Booker T. Washington and also the
President and Mrs. Roosevelt dining
at the same board with a negro. On
this account it was easy for many to
believe the incident on the Capitol
plaza was intended to have the same
effect.
Urtanwhile the kinetoscope appa
ratus, which had been set up near the
Washington Ftatue, was working and
a mi.vins picture of the whole scene
was taken. In order to make sure of
the negative, the who!*- act was re
peated and thx-n the party drove away.
By the time the second picture was
niched a large crowd had gathered
about the scene and formed the neces
eaTy background.
The storv soon spread throughout
the city and many people, not know
ing that it was Dockstader himself,
imagined the act was intended to put
the President in the attitude of show
ing over politen«*ss to a negro to em
phasize the Booker Washington dinner
incident for campaign purposes.
i It all occurred Just before S o'clock
this morning. The curtain rose on an
open barouche from which Lew Dock;
stader stepped and immediately fell to
the asphalt. Another open barouche
representing the White House car
riage, horses, coachman and . footman,
drove up and from it stepped a man
resembling Roosevelt. He was dresstd
*in a frt)ck coat and high hat, wore eye
glasses and was otherwise made up
to represent the chief executive. With
the aid «>f his footman he assisted
Doekstader into the 'White House" car
liace, tipped his hat to the minstrel,
off?mi him a cigar, and then drove off
with him.
