JOHN BASSETT MOORE, THE
THIRD MAN IN NATION,
QUITS POST.
WAS NOT IN ACCORD
With Opinions bf Superiors on
Important Foreign
Questions.
(By Associated Press! j
Washington, March 4.-John Bas
sett Moore, counsellor of the state de
partment and the recognized authority
on international questions, concluded
his service with the government today
when President Wilson accepted the
resignation Mr. Moore had submitted
u mon til ago. Coining when Interna
tional affairs occupy the forefront of
official and public atteutlon, thc de
parture of Mr. Moore from a position
second only to that ot Mr. Bryan at
tracted widespread attention and
comment.
Although the resignation had been
in the president'.-- hands since Feb-1
ruary 2. lo KO into effect today, this
fact had not. been generally known.
There had been reports some months
ago that the counsellor ot the st tue
department did not And .his labors en
tirely congenial and was about to re
sign, hut these reports were promptly
denied.
It was explained then, and again
officially explained today, that Mr.
Moore had come into the administra
tion with a definite understanding that
Mu tenure was provisional for a year,
so that he could return to his duties
an head of the department of Interna
tional law at Columbia university.
Thin fact was strongly emphasised In
the official correspondence made pub
lic today. Although the official state
ments--ene from the president, one
from Mr. Bryan and Mr. Moore's own
letter of reslgnation^y?ede no men
tion af the subject-lt IB a matter of
c<romoa. JMH^ *he#M
?mal viewpoint on some .of, the must
important policies, relating to foreign
affairs were not .always In accord
with those of his superiors.. At the
same timo it has been recognized that
he gave unswerving loyalty, and un
prejudiced counsel to tho fui il liment
i of policies as finally adopted. It ls
said In this, connection that when the
.question of recognizing the Huerta
government waa being discussed Mr.
Moore suti'itted a memorandum cit
IRS precedents by which the United
States would be Justified in recogniz
ing the Huerta govornmept. Previous
to Mr. {.deere's appointment, however,
the 'enersl policy of the sdiriluistre*
tlon not to recognize governments set
up by arbitrary force had been out
lined in n statcYnent from President
Wilson. When - lt was definitely deter
mined not to recognise the Huerta
government Mr. Moore contributed his
energies to carrying out the policy of
ficially determined upon.
During tho diplomatic controversy
with Japan over the California anti
alien land law Mr. Moore was con
stantly consulted by the president,
and his < J nacl was reflected la va
rious notes defining the American at
titude. When Mr. Bryan was in Cali
fornia Mr. Moore was acting secretary
of state and in frequent conferences
with thc president on the Japanese
question.' At all times' during Mr.
Bryan's absence froto Washington Mr.
Moore was actina: secretary and occa
sionally sat at the-cabinet table.
Mr.- Moore said tonight he would re
main In Washington for a month or
six weeks to complete work he ls do
ing for the Carnegie endowment for
International peace and then result,
his place at the head of the depart
ment -of International law at Columbia
university.

At the white house, in executive

recall the work of the fleeting year.
From the time the president broke
a century-old precedent and stood be

repoal ot the clause exempting Amer

ment of canal tolln. Mr. Wilson for
the first time, asks congress; particu

but his argument is that When con
