chief executive's approval when he i
first read it as H came from the com
mittee.
"i Hit ol four thousand or more
items In the bill," said .Mr. I'nder-
vvood, "the president only made two
suggestions, those affecting the sugar
and wool schedules It seems to me
that we should accept those sugges
tions from the president of the I'nit
cd States."
Representatives Kainev of Illinois,
and Harrison of New York, also spoke
on behalf of the committee, defending
its action and the attitude of the pres
ident. The attack upon the committee and
the president began as soon as the
Insurgent democrats opened the dis
cussion on the schedule.
1'opresentativo Alexander of Mis
souri, declared, that the committee
overstepped all proper bounds in hold
ing up President Wilson as a club
over the heads of the members and
that the president had exerted "un
due Influence" In having wool placed
en the free list In the bill.
Representative Montague of Vir
ginia, a new member, defended the
president in a spirited speech, declar
ing that it was his "constitutional and
inherent right" to suggest what
should bo In a tariff bill, and that
neither he nor the committee were
subject to criticism for their eo-opern-tion
In framing the bill.
Representatives files insisted that
the Rovcrnment was made up of three
distinctive branches with separate du
ties to perform.
"it not only is the right of congress,

The debate on this
iariff fight was heated mid prolonged.

Porters of the Ides amendment for a
3 5 per rent wool duty were Rcpi-eson-t.itives

Washington, April Iti. Professor
Willis I.. Moore, chief of the Weather
bureau since I Ml,',, and an appointee
of the Cleveland administration, was
summarily removed from office todav
by President W ilson. His resignation
recently had been accepted, to take
effect July 31, but after an Investiga
tion of hii alleged efforts to become
secretary of agriculture In the present
cabinet, grave charges of irregularity
w,re preferred and the president
withdrew his acceptance of the resig
nation, dismissing Professor Moore.
Later he referred the subject to the
department bf justice for inquiry. Sec
retary Houston, of the agricultural
department, conferred with the presi
dent before the removal of Mr. Moore
was announced. The secretary then
Issued the following statement:
"Immediately after the resignation
of Professor Moore, of the weather
bureau, was submitted to the presl
dent and accepted Icy him, charges
were filed with the secretary of agri
culture by responsible men within thi
service. I hese barges were of so
grave a nature that the secretary of
agriculture called upon the depart
mi nt of justice for an Investigation.
Ihe investigation still is under
way, but the facts so far secured and
laid before the president yesterday
were sufficient to warrant him in de
elding to withdraw his acceptance ,,.
Professor Moore's resignation and re
move him summarily, which has heeu
done today. The president also lias
directed the secretary of agriculture
to suspend Mr. Charles T. Burns, fin
employe of the weather bureau, pend
ing a lurther investigation of his case,
and take such disciplinary measures
as he may deem necessary with such
other employes of the weather bureau
ns may have been unduly active in
using the public service lor private
ends."
The letter to Secretary Houston di
rccting Mr. Moore's removal was not
made public, but it was stated at th
White House to charge sm-h irregu
larities and misuse of powers as tn
require the immediate dismissal of
the weather bureau chief in the in
terest of the public service.
Unofficially it was said at the White
House that the campaign to make Mr
Moore secretary of agriculture had
been extensive; that members of con
grcss In various parts of the country
had been canvassed and that a letter
writing campaign had been conducted
among weather bureau employes,
Professor Moore has been a target
for attack in congress. A few days
ago a resolution was introduced calling
on the secretary of agriculture to ad
vise congress regarding the appropria
tions for official traveling expenses for
the weather bureau, what amount of
the lump sum of salaries In the
weather bureau was expended for pro
motions of weather bureau employes
last January and February and the
comparative figures for the preceding
four years.
The resolution asked for Informa
tion as to what journeys Were taken
by Charles I,. Barns under official
orders, and under what instructions,
between July 1, 1912, and February
28 last, find also called for data re.
guiding circulars and other matter
printed at government expense and
used by the chief of Ihe weather bu
reau In his campaign for secretary ol
agriculture dining the last fiscal
year."
The house committee on expendi
tures in the agricultural department
had planned last year an exhaustive
investigation into the weather bureau.
but was prevented from making It on
account of the lley inquiry, the Hor-
ida everglades ease and other special
matters. Representative Moss, of In
diana, niuj democratic members of the
committee did take up special charges
filed against Professor Moore by
James Jlerry, a former employe of the
weather bureau, which related to mis
use of the contingent fund. The com
mittee, Mr. Moss said today, never
found enough in these charges to I
press them for furtiier inquiry. It is
proposed, however, to conduct a thor
ough Investigation of the bureau as
soon as the committee is organized,
which probably will not bn until the
regular session next winter.
Professor Moore issued a statement
tonight declaring that the same influ
ences that attempted to "disgrace and
remove Dr. Harvey W. Wiley" were
responsible for his removal, and
branding as "infamously false" any
Intimation that he had coerced em
ployes of the weather bureau In sup
porting him for the secretaryship of
agriculture or that public money had
been expended in his candidacy. His
statement follows:

that they did not dan speak to me,
and then a report was made to Ihe
president that had for in object driv
ing me in disgrace from a service
where I had had nit honorable cut err

"I do not believe that the great com

years as the chief of the weather bu

Home, April Hi. Thu bulletins Is
sue, bv Ihe rehvsicians today Indicat
ed that the condition of the pope
practically Is stationary. The eveniuM
bulletin was of a more optimistic
tone as It Indicated that the tempera
ture was normal and that thero had
been no rccurrcticii of the usual night
fever.
The fact, however, that thn bron
chial affection has not been over
come detracts somewhat from th,t
hopeful (hiiracter of the report as
the occasional paroxysms of coughliiK
are taxing the strength of the patient,
which already has been under a great
strain.
The condition of albuminuria has
re appeared and to relieve the kid
neys, hot baths have been ordered.
Or Andreft Amlci paid a V llt to
the Vatican at II o'clock tonight, and.
ace-oiding to his announcement, found
only a slight elevation in the tempera
ture and other conditions satisfactory,
lie reported to Cardinal Merry Del
Val, who personally watches t the
pope s bedside most of the dliy Bill!
during the early hours of the night.
and later telephoned his observations
lo Prolessor MarchJafava, who has
been coiineiled with the Vatican by
spe lal w:i ID orin-r to prevent m-
i.'rel ions.
Further improvement In the pope's
condition whs shown by the fact that
he was able to retain a quantity of
chicken Jelly and that he slept peace
fully for a considerable time. Fairly In
the evening he acknowledged that he
was feeling- the benefit of the absolute
rest imposed upon him and that he
fell more inc lined to sleep naturally
than at any lime since his Illness.
The pope is extremely concerned ut
I he trouble he gives lo those around
hiiii, often expressing to thein his deep
gratitude, especially those who assist
him at night, repeatedly urgliiK them
to go to bed, and some times his In
sistence Is so marked that In or.b'f to
satisfy him, they leave the room.
All his life the pope has been a
great" lover of music. The composer,
Moiisfnor Lorenzo Perozl, owes him
much is the pope aide,; him to at
tain NIU"Ces. The two were great
friends 'When the pontiff was patri
arch of Venice.
i iiic-e rajs, d to the p,.ntif.-.il chair,
he did not forget the young composer,
whom he tuok to Home with him and
j, Dowel him, contrary to the tradition
of the papacy, to share his meals.
With the aid of Perozl he aceompllsh
cl those reforms In i him h music
Which were among the first inanlfe''
lalloiis or his papal activity ancl re
stored the Oregoiinn chant to its or
IgiiWil character and place in tin'
chin ch. His love for music seems tee
have been made icitte by his Illness,
the ponlllf often asking for favorite
hymns Hiiii rhants which seemed P
sooiho) bis restlessness and pain. And
during J he most trying period of his
sickness he lay listening lo Ihe tones
