Former Head of State Department
Vigorously Denounced Bowen In
- Recent Dispute With the
Assistant Secretary
Mr. Hay's request I spent at his home
what proved practically the last hour
of his life In Washington. Having upon
the occasion indicated to me fully and
lucidly, as was his wont, what he
wished my two colleagues and myself
to do in the lines of departmental action
and the policy to be carried out during
his absence, he referred to the recent
Bowen episode with much feellnff.
Among other things he said he was
disgusted with Bowen beyond expres
sion; that vanity appeared to be a dis
ease with him and that he was both
disloyal and untruthful, and had been
treacherous not only to him (Mr. ±iayj
but to the country."
"In view of this conversation, to
which I have adverted in the -briefest
possible' manner,- ft is 'difficult- to be
lieve that there is any truth in either
of the foregoing paragraphs which I
have quoted, or any others which have
been printed of similar import.
"As I am very soon to retire from the
public aervice I trust you will not feel
that I am not unduly or improperly
trespassing on your time with this
rather personal matter.
- "Respectfully and sincerely yours,
Mr.' Roosevelt's Reply
"The presldenTs* letter is as follows:
3 "The White House, Oyster Bay, Sep
tember 27, 1005.
• "My dear Loomis: — In answer to
your letter of September 25, I desire
to state, in the broadest and most em
phatic manner, that the statement you
quote as appearing in certain news
papers and especially In certain New
York newspapers as to the suppose:!
differences of opinion between myself
and the late Secretary of State Mr.
Hay in respect tc the action taken by
me regarding Mr. Bowen In connec
tion' with the charges against you !s
not merely without foundation in fact,
but Is the direct reverse of the truth.
"You were appointed assistant sec
retary of state on Mr. Hay's sugges
tion and request. He never spoke to
me about you save with respect and
cordial appreciation of the services
you were rendering and he expressed
to me very great regret that you were
going to leave the service and stated
that he had hoped that you would
stay as long as he did and that he
would find it difficult to get any one In
your place whom he would like so
"Mr. Hay expressed himself very
freely on the occasion of his last visit
to Washington, as regards action taken
by me on the report of Mr. Taft con
cerning the charges made by Mr. Bowen
against you.
"Not only did he express himself
about Mr. Bowen to me in the language
you quote him as having said
at about the samei time in speaking;
of Mr. Bowen, but he also, condemned
Mi-. Bowen In much stronger terms than
those which you quote him as having
used, and dwelt particularly on the
fact of what he called the treachery
nnd disloyalty of Mr. Bowen to the
government and to him (Mr. Hay) re
peating again that most of the charges
Mr. Bowen made were really no charges
against you at all, but against himself
(Mr. Hay) and that Bowen of course
knew this.
"Moreover, Mr Hay used about Mr.
Bowen stronger language of condem
nation than I have ever heard him use
about any other man (vho had served
under him. But this was not all. Mr.
Hay then did what he very rarely did.
He expressed his strong dissent from
the action I had taken In indorsing 1
Mr. Taft' a report as regards even the
stating that he disagreed with Mr. Taft
and myself on this point and felt that
you were in no way whatever censur
able, and that the only action that
had been called for was the dismissal
of Mr. Bowen and the announcement
of your entire vindication.
Very truly yours, . .

Miss Clare Mersch
Plucky Miss Clare Mersch Says Shots
Fired at Her Did Not Frighten Her
as Much as the Discovery of a
Burglar in the Home
In spite of the unceasing efforts of
Los Angeles police officers and detec
tives the ungallant burglar who fired
a shot at pretty Clare Mersch of 2013
Aubrey avenue Saturday morning as
she stood on the rear porch of her
homeland drove the Intruder from the
premises remains at large.
The burglar is said by the police to
be an old offender and robbing the
Mersch home was similar to many
other robberies of fashionable houses
of the western section of the city.
Several suspects have been arrested
and "booked on suspicion, but all have
been released and the officers are at a
loss for clews.
As for Miss Mersch she has very lit
tle to say on the subject of the shoot
irig. "He was in the house and trying
to make away with several valuable
pieces of cut glass and I fired at him,"
she said yesterday.
"How does it feel to be shot at? Oh,
I don't exactly know. I didn't think
about that at the time. I fired at him
and it seemed only natural that there
should be an answering flash, but I
never thought about being hit until he
was out of sight. I didn't take much
of a chance, anyhow, because he was
running so fast and it was dark.
"The worst scare of this burglar
business is when you realize that a
burglar is actually in the house. My
first glimpse of him was as he stood in
the shadow of the curtains in the bed
room. My heart stood still as he
dashed across the hall and struck out
the light.
"But after that the burglar ceased to
be a novelty and I wanted to send a
souvenir along with him. I always
have my revolver where I can get it
and it didn't take me long to follow up
the man. .
"He stopped In the yard for a mo
ment and then started toward me. It
was only natural that I should press
the,. trigger and I wasn't surprised
when that answering shot came.
, :: "I. suppose a girl stands about as
good a chance in tackling a burglar as
a man does," continued the pretty
young woman, as she put the heavy
handled revolver back in a top bureau

Mistress of Pugs Declares the O'Brien
Offspring Had Br.d Moral
Influence on Her
Special to The H»rald.
NEW YORK, Oct. I.— Mrs. Bridget
O'Brien, who has twelve children, does
not like dogs, and Mrs. Catherine Davis,
who has two dogs, doesn't like children.
As they all live in the same house the
purport of this narrative is obvious at
the outset. After much preliminary
skirmishing, in which honors were
about even, the situation developed into
I open warfare and the dogs were de
feated in the first engagement. A truce
was then declared by Magistrate Wahle,
but hostilities may be resumed at any
When the case came to judicial deter
mination in the Harlem court it ap
peared that the issue was whether or
not the O'Brien children had exercised
a bad moral influence upon the Davis
dogs or whether the dogs were no bet
ter than the children. After listening
grimly to the evidence on both sides,
Magistrate Wahle evaded a direct de
cision but, to all intents and purposes,
found in favor of the children by hold
ing Mrs. Davis under bond for her good
Mrs. O'Brien and her dozen offspring,
of both sexes and various ages, live on
the ground floor of a tenement house
at No. 2012 Third avenue. Mrs. Davis
and her two dogs, which are pugs, are
domiciled on the top floor. It appeared,
however, that the juvenile O'Briens, be
ing active and healthy youngsters, with
a fondness for dogs, found no difficulty
in bridging the intervening distance,
and thence arose all the trouble.
Played With the Pugs
Day after day one or another of those
O'Briens had one or both of those pugs,
romping up and down the stairs, parad
ing the streets or having other kinds of
fun whenever Mrs. Davis was not look
ing. They had to be careful, because
they knew that Mrs. Davis objected to
them, but they were careful enough, for
she did catch them on Monday, and
then the action began. .
Mrs. Davis probably is as fond of her
two pugs as Mrs. O'Brien is of her
twelve children. She says they — the
pugs, not the children— are delicate,
sensitive creatures, whose dispositions
are easily affected, and one of the tor
ments of her. life has been lest they
might suffer from' association with such
boisterously healthy children . as the
O'Briens. Only, "lnstead of phrasing it
that way, she said, "Them tough brats
downstairs." .■ • !"-■•■>■- 3£<*vi
So, when It came, about on Monday,
when she found one of the O'Brien
"brats" swinging Gladys, which is the
name of one of the pugs, by the tall In
an areaway, and another of them feed-
Ing Margery, the other pug, with an
obsolete tomato on a landing of the
stairs, patience ceased to be a virtue.
After boxing the ears of the offending
O'Briens, Bhe rescued the pets, carried
them up stairs and put them to bed.
Then she went down to the ground floor
to exchange a few opinions with Mrs.
There are reasons why the exact
phraseology of the conversation should
not be reproduced. It is sufficient to say
that it lacked nothing in emphasis on
either side and that there were times
when both the O'Brien children and the
Davis dogs were forgotten In the fer
vor of the compliments exchanged by
the heads of the two respective house
holds. The basis of the argument, how
ever, on Mrs. Davis' part was that the
moral character of her pugs was being
damaged by association with the
O'Brien children. Mrs. O'Brien's retort
to this may be better imagined than
read in cold type.

It Is Believed That Indians of Pueblo
of Zoe Give Infants to Reptile
Which They Consider
Special to The Herald.
ALBUQUERQUE, N. M., Oct. I.— The
United States grand Jury has unearthed
evidence which goes far to prove sen
sational rumors which have been In
circulation for some time that the In
dians of the pueblo of Zoe, one of the
more isolated of the Pueblo tribes of
New Mexico, feed a certain number of
new born infants each year to a mam

Great secrecy has been observed In
the investigation and the name of the
witness today could not be learned. It
is known, however, that he is a Catholic
missionary who has lived much with
the Indians and who has been admitted
to many of their sacred rites. His evi
dence was almost conclusive that some
such horrible, human sacrifice is ob
served by the Indians of this Pueblo
tribe and that the interior department
will be asked to make a rigid Investi
All efforts to learn the name of the
missionary have been unavailing, since
it Is claimed his life would be endan

That certain of the more remote
Pueblo tribes still cling to their ancient
secret ries Is well known and there has
always been some dim outline of the
story told to the grand jury in circula
tion in the southwest. Heretofore llttl»
credence has been given It.
Now enough is known to warrant an
immediate investigation by the govern
ment authorities. The story told the
grand jury Is that this snake accounts
for the several mysterious decreases In
the birth rate of the several pueblos
from time to time In recent years which
have never been accounted for. •-. .
The sacred snake, which Is said to be
of enormous size and of great age, was
first heard of in the pueblo of Santo
Domngo, a pueblo on the Santa Fe rail
road north of Albuquerque, later it wai
taken by the Jemez Indians, who were
paid heavy tribute for taking It. Im
mediately afterward the birth rate !n
the latter pueblo decreased alarmingly.
The Jemez Indians in turn paid the Zee
pueblo heavy tribute to take charge of
the snake and It is agreed It is now
kept In that pueblo and that a large
per cent of the new born infants are
fed to It.
Amazing as the story seems it has
been sufficiently verified to cause the
grand Jury to give it earnest attention
and to recommend an investigation.
It is well known that at the time of
the Spanish invasion all of the Pueblo
Indians were snake worshipers and that
many of them made human sacrifices to
the snakes. The snake rites have grad
ually receded before the white man unt'.l
It Is now only observed in the isolated
pueblo of the Hopl or Mokl, and there

are observed In the secret ceremonies
of the Indians Is unknown. No white
man ha 3as yet witnessed the rites per

chambers of the Mokl, Zunl or even the
Laguna and Islet pueblos, which are
visited by tourists. It is expected that

Row Between Comedian and De Haven
Over Miss Parker During Perform,
ance at Victoria Theater, New
York, Starts All Kinds of Gossip
Special to The Herald.
NEW YORK, Oct. I.— That Nat C.
Goodwin, the actor, and his wife, Max
ine Elliott, have been separated for
some time Is one statement of the gos
sip which followed Goodwin's scene
with Carter de Haven over Flora Par
ker at the Victoria theater yester
"The rumor is all too true," asserted
a friend of the Goodwins, while other
friends declared It idle, possibly ma
licious gossip.
"There Is not a night when Good
win Is not at his home chatting, made
cheerful and happy by the company
of his wife," said another friend; and
another discussing the De Haven In
cident, said:
"This episode with De Haven Is not
looked upon by Miss Elliott as serious
at all. Scandal mongers and gossips
have been telling of the separation be
tween Miss Elliott and Goodwin all
along, and without any foundation."
De Haven himself attributes the
row to purely business reasons and
when seen he said:
"I almost had completed arrange
ments with a manager to take Miss
Parker into a company and Goodwin
resented my action because he wants
her with his own company."
The scene in the theater is the one
theme of theatrical gossip today.
The sketch was Impromptu, and, ac
cording to Oscar Hammerstein, who
was in the audience, It would have
made him a wealthy man had he been
able to advertise it.
De Haven, who is appearing nightly
with Lulu Glaser at the Knickerbock
er, had escorted Miss Parker to the
theater and they occupied a box ad
joining the stage. The show was well
advanced when Goodwin appeared and
paid the price of admission.
"It was the first time he ever did
it," said Hammerstein,. "and I at once
suspected trouble."
'Til lick you good if I meet you in
the street," Goodwin is said, to have
announced so loudly the eyes of the
audience left the stage.
De Haven said not a word, and after
a few minutes went to the front of the
theater, where he learned that the
couple had driven off In an automobile.
De Haven with two of his friends
started In pursuit, and as he drew up
in front of Miss Parker's residence,
244 West Forty-fourth street, Goodwin
was Just leaving.
De Haven could be tucked under
Goodwin's arm, but he advanced and
dared the comedian to carry out his
threat to administer the promised lick
ing. Even then a crowd had collected,
which listened to De Haven denounce
Goodwin as he stepped into his auto
mobile and drove away.
Angered by Goodwin's conduct, Miss
Parker is said to have destroyed many
gifts she had received from htm and
to have torn- up a contract he had left
for her signature.

That of Another
Special to The Herald.
DE3 MOINES, Oct. I.— That George
B. Griswold, a well known insurance
man, supposed to have been robbed and
murdered, still lives, and that the body
which was taken, clothed in his gar
ments, from the river and buried as his,
was that of another man, purposely so
dressed, is the opinion of Prof. Charles
N. Kinney, state chemist, who has made
a thorough analysis of the stomach.
Prof. Kinney said tonight that the
state of decomposition in which the
organs were found could only be ac
counted for on the ground that the
man had been dead for from ten days
to two weeks, in which case It could not
be the body of Griswold, who was
known to be alive three days previous
to the time when the body was re

His belief Is that If the body had been
dead and in the water but three days
it could not have become so infiltrate J.
The coldness of the water would tend
to preserve it, and if It actually Is the
body of Griswold It must have been ex- .
posed to the r.ir for most three days and ,
only placed In the water a short ttaie|
before being found. Even then It a
improbable, he asserts, that decomposi
tion would have been carried so far.
Efforts are being made to have the
coffin opened and the body submitted
to a thorough examination to establish
the identity beyond a doubl :. Se . fai -this

"Emerald Isle" was first applied
to Ireland by Dronlgan In a poem called
Bad blood conies from bad digestion —
bad stomach, bad liver, bad kidneys— atr
tended with bad, foul breath, coated
tongue, bad taste, bad headaches, bad
appetite and kindred symptoms. Bad as
these all are, and serious as are the dis-
eases to which they lead, Dr. Plerce's
Golden Medical Discovery comes to the
relief and cure of all these by regulating
and Invigorating STOMACH, LIVER,
BOWELS and KIDNEYS, and putting
all these organs In good order.
"Golden Medical Discovery" contains
no alcohol, opium or other harmful
drugs; neither does It contain sugar or
syrup, which are injurious to some stom-
achs. Without any of these It retains Ita
pleasant taste and marvelous healing
qualities in the most trying climate.
Don't let a selfish medicine seller cheat
you out of your health by giving you a
lubstttute. He's only looking out for a
larger profit, not for your good. Shun
him. Honest, unselfish dealers recom-
mend the "Golden Medical Discovery."
"Tbt# Four remedies are not for the few,
b«* *uv iliß many is evident, for I personally
knew of many scores of persons In this city
who have been restored to health and
strength by your medicines," thus writes
Henry Landsbeft, Esq.. Alderman In 17th
Ward. Buffalo, N. V., of 1204 Jefferson Street.
"I know that Dr. Plerce's Golden Medical
Discovery is most valuable in cases of de-
rangement of the liver, having taken the
medicine some two years &co when I had a
bad attack of liver trouble, and I never used
a medicine before that did me so much
good. I have known Dr. Pierce for twenty-
■lx years, and do not wonder at his success,
for he is a physician and man of sterling
qualities. Is possessed of extraordinary skill,
and he has In bis Sanitarium a corps of Spe-
cialists who are chosen because of tlioir
unusual knowledge and professional skill."
If suffering from any obstinate, linger-
ing ailment, write to Dr. Pierce and get,
free of charge, sound medical advice.
He has the counsel and assistance of a
large staff of expert specialists.
