Secretary Rusk Officially Declares the Fact
Correspondence on the subject of a place
for the meeting was interrupted by the
presence of the cholera scare, and it is now
as uncertain as ever where the conference
will be held. A date for its assembling,
which cannot well lieannounced until after
the place of meeting has lieen agreed upon,
is of course equally a matter of doubt.
Treasury officials say this is doubtless the
basis of the report printed in some of the
western papers that Senator Allison could
