v'Trom time to time inthe course

confronted with, the oft-repeated ru

;.respcnse to a query from a Star-Bulletin
representative who ventured, the
query as to whether; he intended , to
letlfe within the next two or three
months as more or less freely stated
. in late dispatches from' Washington.
"I have. ,. never dignified . these
stories by ;'a denial" insisted
the ambassador, "and at -this time 1
i have nothing to add in regard to the
.matter." In this same connection
- Mr. Bryce likewise refrained from
entering . into a discussion - as . to ,a
pcusitle successor to the embassy, at
' V"i.7liInrrton. ''
' Any protest that may have been
naie by my. government against the
