BIO STORM OF RIDICULE
$1,000 n Month Poverty Plea
I Severest Blow Yet to
Washington, July 15. Secretary of
State nrynn felt obliged to defend hlm
,tt again to-day against the flood of
criticism tint has poured In on nccount
of hi? absences from Washington on the
Mr. Hrynn Issued a statement In which
announced that his forthcoming six
speaking tour would be hln va
cation. He reiterated his statement that
he was unable to live within his salary
of $12,000 a year, nnd added that he Is
facrlllclns $40,000 net Income by serv
ing us Secretary of State for four yenrs.
Mr. Uryan acknowledges thnt In the
jt seventeen yenrs he hns saved $170,
00. Inasmuch as this apparently does
not include Investments which Mr.
Bryan may have mad.) there seems to be
(taod reason for the statement that he
1 worth between $400,000 nnd $500,000.
Brlatoxr "How Muchf"
While Mr. Bryan was doing this ex
plaining at the State Department things
ere happening at the Capitol. Sena
tor Itristow nrose from his seat and In
troduced a resolution calling upon Presi
dent Wilson to advise the Senate what
Hilary Is necessary in order to retain to
the Government the exclusive services
of the Secretary of State and keep him
The Urlstow resolution flabbergasted
the Democrats of the Senate for a few
minutes, but they got their wind soon
enough to shut off debnte on the reso
lution. It will come up under the rules
of the Senate on Friday, and Senator
Brlstow intends to push it.
These two developments Indicate
clearly the rumpus that hrut teen stirred
up In the national capital over Mr.
Bryan's Chautauqua circuit predilec
tions. Nothing more embarrassing for
the Democrats and the Wilson ad
ministration has yet occurred than this
attempt by Mr. Uryan to use the time
for which the Government Is paying
him to deliver Chautauqua speeches
Not the least humiliating feature of
the cae is the knowledge that it will
b used in Europe to add' to the
ridiculous Impression that already has
ben created by the grape Juice and
other stirring episodes In Mr. Hryan's
brief career as head of the State De
partment. .Mr. Hrj-an's Statement.
Hue Is the statement Issued by Mr.
"I am glad to have the criticism brought
to my attention. I believe In criticism of
public otticlaln. Criticism is helpful. If
a man makes a mistake, criticism enables
him to correct It: If he Is unjustly critl
Msel the criticism helps him. I have had
my shar of criticism since I have been
in p-jhllc life, but It has not prevented
my doing what I thought proper to do.
"In denting a part of my vacation
to lecturing 1 am doing what 1 believe to
It proper, and I have no fear whatever
that any unbiassed person will criticise
me when he knows the facts.
"For seventeen years the sources of my
Income have been writing and lecturing,
f peeches without compensation and where j
I have paid my own travelling expenses
man I havo where compensation was re
leived My earning capacity has been
Urne and I have made not only an Income
uftlrieiit for my Immediate needs, but
he )-aved on an average something
more than Jlo.OOti a year.
"In accepting the office which I now
hold I save up the opportunity to add
to my accumulation, for I do not expect
to increase during my term the amount I
hive laid aside, that Is 1 am willing to
forego whatever advantage I might de
rive from the acquiring of $40,000 more
for the privilege of serving the country
n this office during the coming four
I will do more If necessary, but I do
not hu ve that fair minded people will

ri-awm for changing my purpose 1 expect
tp l.cture enough to bring my Income up

Mr. Mears's race around the world

which five years ago would have
seemed Incredible seems to have
reached Its most Interesting stage. The
globe trotter hus been assured by the
Trans-Siberian Hallway nfllclals that
the express on which he Is travelling
will make up ten hours of the eighteen
hours lost at a washout licfore the
train leaves Irkutsk, one of the prin

Siberian Hallway passes.

from Vladivostok to Yokohama con
nects with the Trans-Siberian express

late the steamer xvlll wait for It. Hut
If the train Is more thn n four hours
late In reaching Vladivostok Mr. Mears
will be unable to catch the steamship
Kmpress of Hussia at Yokohama, on
which he expects to cross the Pacific.
It all depends., then, on whether or

Won't. He Coerced Into
ALtiANr, July 1R. Wallace n. Hunter,
who w4s employed by George W. Hlako
as n special Investigator In' the probe of
State prisons, was forced to admit be
fore the Frawley legislative commltteo
to-day that while he was pursuing his
Investigations nt Clinton prison he se
cured from a convict named I.ouls
Dletrlck models of sei'cral Inx-entlons,
promising to show them to Gov. Sulzer,
but has not kept his promise,
Dletrlck's inventions Include an auto
mobile wrench, a five tool wrench, an
other quick acting wrench, a necktie
protector and a scarfpln holder. The
nttentlon of the Frawley committee was
called to the matter In an affidavit
sworn to by Dletrlck on Monday, In
the affidavit Dletrlck says, referring to
his Interview with Hunter:
"He said: 'Have you got the models?"
I told him yes, I had them down tn
the corner In my box In the shop. He
said: 'All right, let's go down and get
them:' 1 told him: 'Iook out for the
screw meaning the keeper; I don't
want the screw to sec them.' So we
stepped outside for a few minutes and
talked the matter o-er In regard to
the models. I gave him the letter
for (low Sulzer.
"In my conversation with Mr. Hunter
he said to me: 'You know you are a
third termer. 1 dont know about a
pardon or commutation of sentence.'
So 1 said to him: 'How about a special
parole V He said: 'That is It. Now
don't worry; I xvlll do tho best I can for
you, and you will hear from me

Hunter said he had not spoken to
Gov. Sulzer about the Inventions, hut
he did mention them to Commissioner
"Now, Mr. Hunter, you were there
as an Investigator from the Governor.
Do you think It was right for you to
help this convict deceive the keeper In
the way you did?" Inquired Senator
Mr. Hunter made no answer.
"Did you show Dletrlck's letter to
Gov. Suliter?" pressed Senator Frawley.
"So, 1 did not." admitted Hunter.
"As a matter of fuct you have done
nothing regarding the models and
papers confided to you by Dletrlck."
"No, not yet," said Hunter, who as
serted thut he had not had time to at
tend to the matter.

Then he Impressed eleven lawyers Into

them from Jury duty thi-y accepted the
assignment, it developed yesterday that
the other Juryman, Hernanl A. Dcvlne,
is an artist.
The testimony embraced charges that
Mrs. (label had been Intieuite with an
actor named llendel and that (label had
been too friendly with an actress named
Goldstein. Throughout the testimony the
lawyer-Jurors furnished all the Interest

untrue statements made concerning htm
on the xvltness stand the Senate com

"UNDERWEIGHT" DIAMOND NOW.
Jeweller In Cnnrt lleeniiae Wnlab
Thinks drill Too l.luht.
Morris A. Forgotston, a Jeweller at
Fortieth street and Hroadway, went to
the Yorkvllle police court yesterday to
answer tn a charge that he had sold an
underweight diamond to two Inspectors
of John L. Walsh, Commissioner of
Weights anil Measures. '
It was the llrst case since thc Jewel
lers Association announced on July 1
that the universal carat weighed l!00
milligrams. This gave Commissioner
Walsh something definite to work on.
His Inspectors went to Forgotston's
store and bought a diamond ring. Thn
diamond, It xvas claimed, did not weigh
up to representation.
Samuel 1. Ferguson, one of the Jewel
ler's lawyers, said the charges wero
brought against Mr. Forgotston by his
creditors, xvho are members of tho
Jewellers Hoard of Trade, and although
Commissioner Walsh acted In good faith
he was nevertheless a tool of the men
who are trying to make It unpleasant
for Mr, Forgotston, Th!.' Commissioner
A hearing was set down for Friday.

With pressure being brought to benr

Itself In a most dltllcult situation. The
Administration pinned Its fnlth to the
hope that Mexico would not rise as a
pressing problem until tariff and cur

that nfter the Mexican elections In
October a new Government would come
