SHUMAN IS TURNED DOWN
BY HEAD OF THE TREASURY
Washington, D. C, May 27 No en
couragement was given the candidacy
of Irving Shuman to be comptroller of
the currency when Senator Lewis and
Mr. Shuman conferred yesterday with
Secretary of the Treasury McAdoo.
Mr. McAdoo explained that he desire3
a man of national reputation upon
banking matters, and that he did not
consider a man sufficient qualified for
the place who had not had actual
Senator Lewis will carry the matter
to the president Wednesday morning,
when he wlU not only present the
claims of Mr. Shuman but will urge
upon the president several diplomatic
appointments. He will press the ap
pointment of Charles J
cago as minister to Bulgaria and of
Ira Nelson Morris of Chicago as min
ister, to one of the Latin-American
countries. Mr. Morris originally was
a candidate for the mission to Italy or
Spain, but owing to the policy of the
state department to promote to these
posts men who have had diplomatic
experience, it is probable that the
president will be asked to send Mr.
Morris to one of the Potitli American
republics, where he will be in line for
advancement to a European mission.
Colonel Lewis also will ask that El
more W. Hurst of Rock Island be sent
to Switzerland as the successor cf
Henry S. Boutell of Chicago. Mr.
Hurst has not been enjoying good
health recently and Colonel Lewis be
lieves a residence in Switzerland
w ould be most beneficial.
