Washington, Dec. 21:—When
President Tart sent to the senate his
list of nominations for diplomatic
service there was considerable sur
prise that he named no one to suc
ceed Whltelaw Reld as ambassador
to Qreat Britain. In eemt-oftlelal cir
cles It Is asserted that Mr. Reld will
be reappointed. The president's
nominations are as follows: Robert
Bacon to be ambassador to France,
succeeding Henry White, who re
tires; R. C. Kerens of St. Louis to be
ambassador to Austria-Hungary, suc
ceeding Charles S. Francie of Troy
N. Y., who retiree; Henry. Lane Wil

minister to Portugal, to be minister
to Belgium, succeeding Mr. Wilson;
John B. Jackson of Newark, N. J.;
dow minister to Persia, to be minis
ter to Cuba, succeeding Edwin V.
Morgan of New York, wlio retires.
The choice of Mr. Kerens to be am
bassador at Vienna ends a long fight
in which various Influences have
changed position a number of times.
Senator Warner, the republican mem
ber from Missouri in the senate, has
ibeen supporting the nomination,
which recalls the fact that Kerens
was a vigorous candidate for the een
|atorship when Warner was elected.

" 'Then why, oh, why, do you always

"In our passage through the country

the City of Perth Amboy. Thât pari
of the code provides that there shal
be no slaughtering In the city excepi
