Washington, May 3.—A special mes
sage was sent to congress today by
President Roosevelt in which he ex
plained the. attitude of this govern

earthquake sufferers from foreign
countries. The president says that
where contributions were made to this
government he did not feel wdfrranted
in accepting them, but where they
were made to the citizens' relief com

tion was or could be taken in regard
to them. The message indicates that
the governments of the entire civilized
world promptly responded in messages
of sympathy, and many of them with
contributions or offers of contribu
tions. He recommends the passage of
a resolution by congress expressing
the thanks of this nation for the sym
pathy extended and offers of aid.
