Those who stand aghast at the un

of this there is no question and
that the six-power loan, bulwarked by
guarantees amounting to the under
writing of the revenues of the republic.
Is the onl) waj In which China can
expect to raise the large sums neces
sary for existing indebtedness and the
exploitation of the phjslcal and com
mercial resources of that vast country.
Those who long have sought recog
nition of the new republic declare that
such action probably will be followed
by like action on the part of other pow
ers, and that the new government,
once generally recognized will have
little difficult in borrowing monej at
more advantageous terms and without
the offering for underwriting taxes

Representative Mordock of Kansas to
Be Put Forward by New Wins;

Theodore Roosevelt has given his in
dorsement to the movement that has
been started bv members of the Progres
sive party to set up an organization of
their own In the new House of Repre
sentatives, to put forward Representa
tive Victor Murdock of Kansas as their
candidate for Speaker, and to organize
with a Mew to acting In the House with
out regard to the regular Republicans.
Mr. Murdock Is an accession to he

the House last November as a Republi
can. Korty-four Dull Moose and Progres
sives were Invited in a circular letter

sive conference that Is to be held April i
At this conference the Progressives will
appoint a committee to draw up a Pro

The most optimistic of the Bull Moose
do not expect more than fifteen Progres
sives to Join with them at the initial
'Progressive Republicans tlarmcit.
The Progressives who still cling to
the name "Republican' are alarmed
over the determination of Representa

House The) have been proclaiming
themselves Progressives for a long
time, but In the absence of a new

The Bull Moose herd with which Mr.
Murdock Is now foregathered, has been
advised that the "Progressive Republi

Speaker of their own choosing. They
intend to support either Cooper or
Lenroot of Wisconsin. Woods of Iowa,

convinced that most of the Progressive
Republicans will hold aloof from the
new organization at first, but they ex

ocratic lca'der, alread) has given assur

Sir. Wilson's Letter.
Mr. Wilson's letter lo the President
was as follows
"My dear Mr. President: In view of
all the circumstances. I feel that the
rfslgnation which I had the honor to
submit to )ou on March 4 must be ef
fective toda). I have accordlngl) hand
ed over the charge of the Department of
State to Mr. Adee, the able and experi
enced Second Assistant Secretar) of

last night Inasmuch as I find mvself

cal change of polic), as I understand It,
trust that )ou will sympathize with
the view that It was not appropriate that
I should longer retain the responsibilities
of the office which 1 have now relin
surprised at Policy.
When 1 consented, at the request of
. Brjnn and In deference of what I
understood to be )our wishes, to con
tinue in the office of.Assistant Secretar)
of State for these few weeks longer, I
believe I was Justified In assuming that
there would be no radical departure from
the practice of this -and other countries
hereby the knowledge and experience
of the various officials of the foreign
office is made use of in the stud) of
great questions of foreign policy I had
no reason to suppose that the officials on
dut) in the Department of State would
learn first from the newspapers of a
declaration of pelic) which I think shows
on its face the inadequac) of the consid
eration given to the facts and theories
involved and the failure clearly to ap
prehend the motives leading to and the
purposes of the rollc) superseded I had
no reason to suppose that the fate of
negotiations, which had "o long had the
studious attention of the foreign offices
of six great powers, would be abruptl)
determined with such quite innecessar)
haste and in so unusual a manner. These
methods, against which I rcspectfull)
protest, are the ver) extraordlnarv cir
cumstances which I feel vitiate m) un
derstanding with Mr Br) an and com
pletely relieve me of an) further oral-
tion In the premises
The repeated utterances of the last
administration must have made it per
fectly clear that the motive and purpose
of the polic) now abandoned were first
and primarll) the protection of China's
Integrity and sovcrlgnt). the uplift of
the Chinese people, morallv, materially
and governmental!), the development of
Chinas resources, and the maintenance
of our traditional policv ot the 'open
door, or equalit) of opportunity for
American enterprise Precisely b'cause
of the ultimate possibility of a measure
of foreign control of China's finances
which may be inferred from a study of
other countries which have found them
selves In a similar situation, it was
deemed imperative that there should be
American participation in the rehabilita
tion of China's finances. In order to make
sure of the presence ot the potent,
friendl), and disinterested influence of
the United States The onlv practicable
method of such participation was by
the use of reliable American bankers.
Praise tnlo Offlrlnls.
In the consideration of the Far East
ern polic) I have felt that so much
should be premised and that the prob
lem of the governments using American
bankers, while still scrupulously avoid
ing any material monopolistic feature,
might now. as before, be found one of
the most difficult preoccupations. I have
alwa)s thought that. In the work of ad
vancing the national interests and pro-
"moting the welfare of other nations, the
financial force ot the United States could
be marshalled In some manner to present
a safely united front abroad, where it
would be like the apex of a triangle, but
would have at home at its base broad
equality of opportunlt) . both for citi
zens desiring to invest and for bankers
desiring to engage in these difficult and
relattvel) risky ventures It seems, how
ever, that the conclusions reached are
expressed upon other grounds.
"You will readily understand, Mr.
President, that in view of all the con
siderations indicated in this letter and
of the practical necessity that one
charged, even temporarily, with the ad
ministration of the Department of State
should be In entire and complete accord
with your foreign policies, I feel II my
duty at once to vacate a post In which
one not In harmonj with your foreign
policy would be In danger, even with
the best Intentions, of falling accurately
to reflect )our views.
"In retiring from the service I beg
leave to take the liberty of referring to
the phrase in jour Inaugural address by
which jou summon 'all honest men. all
patriotic, all forward-looking men to
your side.' and of assuring ou that
when ou apply to the Department of
State for technical advice In formulat
ing jour policies, you can nowhere And
men more truly described by that phrase
than the patriotic. Intelligent, high-minded,
and nonpartisan gentlemen whose
association I am leaving with so much

honor to be. Mr. President, with great
respect Tours very faithfully.
