Washington. Sept. 3. Spclal
Fair Commissioner John liarrett,
ben attacked sharply hy th Xew Tork
livening Post for alleged party dlslojalty,
writes that paper a letter descrlblnc his
appointment by Governor Francis and de
fending hii political course. Mr. Barrett
r-as In his letter:
"Noting first the conclusion and climax of
the editorial, I find that with some measure
of sarcasm and a lirgcr measure of In
accuracies you say In part:
" 'Finally, th administration has
appointed him (Harrctt) Commissioner Gen
eral for. Asia and Australia in behalf pf the
Ft. Louis Imposition In JStK. Thus does of'
fire feck the man.'
"Tho truth of th matter Is this: The
administration ha'd no more to do with thfs
appointment than the Evenlnc Post Tills
responsible commission was tendered me
without my solicitation, solely hy the St.
IouIs Directors of the World's Fair
through their President, ex-Secretary of ths
Interior David it Francis, who himself Is
a prominent Democrat. Quoting the words
of President Francis, they offered me this
post because of my 'lone; diplomatic ex
perience In Asia and extended acquaintance
with Asiatic and Pacific peoples, politics,
commerce and public men.1 Pardon me,
therefore, for suggesting that possibly
there mny be more truth than you Intended
In your laconic conclusion, "Thus docs the
office peek the man.'
Wlie-rc the lnrr Coram From.
"Still more, tho Louisiana Purchase Ex
position Company and not tho Government
pays the salary and expenses of this posi
tion. My only connection In this matter
with the administration, unless some new
arrangements not now contemplated are
made, will be that which comes through
tho general interest or President McKInley
nnd the hearty co-operation of the State
mid otl er departments.
"Referring baric now to tho Introduction of
your editorial, jou say: '.Mr. John Barrett
has at last got an office and thus saved the
administration from tho reproach of being
ungrateful. and again: 'His
friends' . -began mentioning him
for various offices' from Minister down to
Consul, but he Ins had to strve by stand
ing and walling until now.'
"Stranfjely enough, the only truth In the
nbove Is again unintended. Such "friends'
tis the Kvenlng Post hate repeatedly men
tioned me for numerous offices and It may
he becatis-e of my 'mentloners' that I hate
been so cruelly neglected.
"The rest of the tiuth which Is unstated
In the editorial is thus:
"(a) The administration has not been, and
is not, under any obligations to me. I sup
ported Mr. McKInley In the last campaign
because I believed in the man and In his
principles. And, It I may Interpolate the re
mark hre, I was more consistent and hon
est than tho Evening Post when it supported
Mr. Bryan and his free-lher theories be
cause of Its bitter anli-McKlnley feeling.
"(b) For no olllee whatever In the gift
of the President have I been n candidate
except for that of United States Minister
to China In case Mr. Conger should volun
tarily retire or bo promoted, and In this
movement the Initiative was taken hy lead
ing chambers of commerce and business
Interests in all parts of the country ir.d
by Senators and Congressmen familiar with
my record In Asia as Minister to Slam and
with my sincere efforts through many years
to build up our commerce with China and
the far East.
IndulEra In Sarcasm.
7c) In April last I was appointed one of
the five delegates of the United States to
tho International American Conference to
meet In Mexico In October. Hence you are
even In error In the matter of my already
having an office, although It is indeed re
markable that you should have overlooked
It or not found In It a supreme danger to
our peace with South America. This high
Government commission given me by Pres
ident McKInley was. moreover, entlrelj- un
sought and unexj-ected, as your Washington
correspondent can readily confirm. It Is my
modest hope that In co-opcratlon with my
more distinguished colleagues of the dele
gation I may be of some service to mr
country and eventually reach the high
standards of the Evening Post.
"(d) In contrast to tho Evening; Post's
Insinuation that I am a chronic office
seeker and dependent upon office for n liv
ing and support. I would. In all modesty,
sub-nit that through the means of hard
work and unremitting application, the value
of which I learned In the days when, as a
Vermont boy, I had to work my own way
and pay my awn expenses through Dart
mouth College, It has been possible for me
to develop legitimate private business Inter,
ens and connections that make me Inde
pendent of worry about getting any of the
various offices' which the Evening Post so
charmingly pictures my 'friends' as men
tioning for me. Of the twelve years that
have elapsed since I cradunte.1 fmm ,.oi.
lege, four only hnvo been spent In Govern
ment service, nnd I resigned that office to
give way to an appointee of President McKInley."

Scalded by Encaplnor Steam.
Henry Burghause, employed at the Illinois

steam In an accident yesterday morning.
He was oiling a locomotive when he acci
dentally turned on a steam cock. He was
enveloped In steam and scalded from head
to foot before iio was rescued. Ho was
taken to St. Mary's Hospital.
D'-spite the break In prices, room sentiment
was very much mixed. The factors which
swayed the early market were weak cables,
olliclal reports of general rains In Texas
Saturday, with scattering rains. In that
State again jesterday. larger 1M0 1W1 crop
figures by Hester than expected, a "top
In. -ivy" long Interest and absence of sup
porting orders.
I!y 12.30 o'clock prices ha1 broken eeiulvi
lent to 2." and 30 points from the clejslng quo
tations at the end of business on Friday,
when the exchange closed for the triple
Ilnr Day holidays. This sharp break was
due to general liquidation and heavy shorts
selling and bears assuming an aggressive
attitude em this pressure and absence of sup
port. The day's news was mostly bearish
and the break was accele-rated by forced
liquidation by traders who had overbought
on last week's sharp rise, many stop loss or
ders being executed by brokers on the way
dow n.
I.onc Interest Congested.
The long interest has become somewhat
congested in the tendency to exaggerate the
crop damage In the Atlantic and Gulf
States, and expected a too low- average con
dition on the Government crop report to
day. Apprehension, with later expectations
of a 10 per cent decrease in condition for
the last month, which had been current
most of last week would not be realized,
and heavy Southern selling against receipts
of new- cotton and efforts to liquidate by
local and New- Orleans bulls were what
broke the Liverpool market Saturday and
again to-day. These apprehensions were ful
filled, as the Government report, published
at noon. Instead of showing a loss of fully
10 points, reported the deterioration as
equivalent to not quite G points. On the
publication of these figures there was re
newed general selling;, which broke prices
all around about 10 points further. Then
the market rallied on covering of shorts 5
to C points.
Market Continued Irreixnlar.
Tho market continued very Irregular dur
ing the afternoon. Various constructions
were placed on the Government crop report
by the trading clement, and those who
were caught short of the market by the
recent rNe and fought the advance the
closing days of last week were naturally
the ones who professed the greatest disap
pointment over the Government's figures.
They put out fresh lines of shorts and ham
mered the market whenever an opportunity
offered, nnd were aggressive on that side In
order to close (he market as low as possible
and to Influence Liverpool as much as pos
sible. A study of the Government report shows
that the condition in Texas, even up to the
21st of August, which is the date from
which the Government report was compiled.
Is 30 per cent, which equaled the poorest
condition In the history of that State,
which was ZS In 1S95 and 15 per cent lower
than In the season of ISM and 13 points
below the mean low average condition of
the crop In that State the past ten years.
Also the condition In Arkansas Is 61 per
cent, which is about the poorest on record.
Since August 21 the crop In the Atlantic
States and also the Gulf States was seri
ously damaged, as all the weekly State
crop reports of last week show, as a con
sequence of the hurricane and excessive
rains which swept In from the Gulf from
New- Orleans and Mobile.
The market closed easy, with quotations
29 to 36 points lower, as compared with Fri
day's closing prices.
