Ambassadorship to Russia for a year, will

the clamor that ha* been rais??l. accord?
ing to the Secretary <?f State, who ??sued
a statement to this effect to-day It is
expccte?l that Mr. PmdeH'?'name will go
to the S.-nate without delay.
In his statement Secretary Riyan says
that the matter has been grossly misrep?
resented and that the President will not
allow malicious misrepresentations to in?
terfere with his right to nominate whom?
soever he please?- Mr Bryan's state?
ment follows
"The Ambassadorship to Russia is va?
cant, and the President has for some time
been desirous of tilling it by an appoint?
ment which would be entirely worthy of
the great diimity and imp?t tance of the
post. Knowing Mr. Pindell personally,
hi? character, hLs ability, his exceptional
fitness for the duties of such a place, he
??nffere'l him the appointment.
Unsought by Pindell.
"Mr. Pindell did not seek the appo'nt
m.-nt. It was tendered him without any
?.ollcltatlon on his part, not only, but
without any knowledge or anticipation on
hia part that It would he offered to him.
In response t ? ? the ??ffer he frankly stated
that he would be glad to serve the ad?
ministration In any way in which the
President thought he could serve it su -
cessfully, but that he did not feel that
be could conscientiously obligate himself
to nerve the full ordinary term of a for?

that he could leave his business so Ion?--.

Qualified men within his choice for con?
spicuous and responsible positions.
Senator J. Hamilton l>ewis took upon
himself to-day the full burden of the si?
leged misunderstanding that has arisen
over the letter attributed to him. concern?
ing the appointment of Henry M Pindell
as Ambassador to Russia, and then ex?
onerated hlmttlf by the declaration that
the document In question is a forgery.
Collusion in Forgary.
It was fabricated, he said, by a clerk
whom he discharged several weeks ago
for fort?n!: chseks, "in collusion with his
SSSSStatf"* " "The lancuaire used," he
sa;?l in bis statetn? nt, "and the phrnse
olosry In the invented lettCfl were for? Ikii
to anything ever used by me."
Pespito the denial of Senator I/ewis that
he ha I -v? r permed the communication to
Mr. Pindell, assuring him that he could
spend a pleasant jrcsr abroad without
b.-irir hampered by diplomat!?- duties. It
la probable that the Senate will scrutinize
the circumstance attending the nomina?
tion with extreme care. Some Senators,
M ISBSt, are in. lined to suspect that
where there is so much smoke there .must
have been some lire, and wish to satisfy
thoniselvv ? that no conditions were at?

a settlement worker. AmateaU alone nn
derstood the ?trange Jargon of the plain?
tiff, and repeated her story, as follows:
"When I was only seventeen years old
I was married to Maurice Krgas, n?'t

Justice Qtcgerica Intimated that I
Would grant the annulment.
"What language do?-s she speak?" h?: I
inquired of Amateau.
"I.adlno," the interpreter replied.
"It's a new one to me. Where does it j
thrive"" the court inquired.
"The language I* almost extinct," re?
plied Mr? Amateau. "It Is h mixture of |
