In returning . the peti tion to Mr. Riddle the officials will assure him that Russia cherishes no ill will toward the United States and that the ac tion it takes with respect to the petition Is necessary In view of Russia's unalter able policy of refraining from interfer ence in the internal affairs of other powers and insisting on similar treatment for Itself. The Russian, Government hopes Us firmness in the matter will not be .misunderstood, but in view of the an nouncement of its position weeks ago, it is surprised at developments which will force a reiteration of its views. Mr. Riddle. It can be stated, will be subjected to no personal embarrassment in presenting the petition and he will be given to understand that the St. .

When the charges of irregularity, were made rey duty was plain. It was to have them ex amined and, if i there were Irregularities, to have them- corrected. .This was exactly what was done. The explanations were reported as they appear In exhibit C, and to me most of them se'emed satisfactory. I -was the more as sured'in'this judgment. from the fact that the Comptroller of the Treasury; who made a searching investigation at the time and thor oughly examined all the vouchers, allowed all and a report was made to me which took them up item by item and groups of items and gave the facts and the explanations in each case". To this report, which appears below as exhibit C. I direct particular attention.,. -If Its state ments are correct, «hei>. oncost -points Its* ex planations are satisfactory.- 'Its accuracy in all it3 speclfic_avermtnta has never- been ini^ peached In any quarter. On the main points it is believed to be beyond successful chal lenge. These main points may -be thus summed wp,' each In a sentence: First, names of military postal clerks were put on the general roll till the military appropriation became- available, then they were transferred to the military roll; second; the bond premiums of military postal clerks were paid' for good reasons, which are plainly set forth and which had the approval oi the Comptroller; third, the purchases of Porto Rico supplies were made from the r*»gu lar department contractors named under com petition and at regular contract prices; fourth, the vouchers for expenses' of department offi cials traveling on official business were made as required by the Auditor; fifth, the lease of the "Washington Postofflce was shown to be entirely justified; sixth, the apparently double payment of those employed In examining letter carriers' claims Is fully explained. Th?s« points embrace all that are specified In the charges, except Items relating to appointments, including the Individual coses of Lamer and O. >H. Smith, and thus, the matters open to question are reduced jo the appointments which, all told. Involve thirteen clerks and seven cleaners. Even this is not an irreducible minimum, for several of these appointments, as " shown ; In the explanatory statement, were perfectly righUand beyond any question. • More than one-half of the inspector's report is taken up with a minute and detailed statement of the cases of Lamer and O. H. Smith. Of the latter I had no knowledge and say nothing. Of the former I have some recollection, as it was the only one of the cases that was appealed to me. Lamer had been appointed a military postal clerk ' for Porto Rico by the First Assistant's bureau. He went under a promise from that bureau of compensation at the rate of $1400 a year. At about that time I fixed the general compensation of clerks In Porto Rico, as I was empowered to do by law, at $1200 a year. When Lamer returned he refused to settle his unsettled account. on that basis and appealed to me. Ho Insisted that he had been promised $1400, and I found on Inquiry that this was true. I ordered that he should be paid what he had been promised, as I had a right to do. Out of that question of rate and out of the question of the actual length of his service grtw the whole story of alleged . Irregularity, which takes up one-quarter of the Inspector's report, except as it Involves a few Items of his expense account. One of the questions at issue in the latter was the question whether In the special Porto' Rican service '•Seldlltz powders, pills, pennyroyal and calomel" should be treat ed as a personal expense or as chargeable to the Government. bassador to Russia, the same programme will obtain, unless in the meantime the Russian Government is made aware of extenuating, circumstances which \ put the matter in a different light. Indeed, it is declared Russia would be glad to do anything possible to relieve the tension in th*e United States, but feels unable to sacrifice a principle which it. has fol lowed hitherto and the ',¦ American, sup port of which it has warmly indorsed. The Russian Government ..readily ad mits the sincerity of the American Gov ernment's decision and declines , to | listen to reports that the forwarding or the peti tion has any ulterior significance . or .Is any way associated with any other mat ters. - ,- .V-^v:' ; ? Hon. Henry C. Payne. Postmaster General — Sir- In view of the partial publication. of the Utter of Fourth Assistant Postmaster General BriEtow on the so-called Tulloch charges and of the accompanying reports of Inspectors made to him in 1890 and 1900. I deem it Incumbent on tne for a right public understanding to make a further statement, supplementary to my letter of May 27. and to present the 'papers in their proper relation. • •Appended to this letter, and to be treated as a part of it. will be found first a complete copy, marked exhibit A, of the itemized state ment of the Tulloch charges as submitted to me at the time they were made; second, in parallel column a complete copy (except as In dicated in the text) marked exhibit B. of the confidential report of Inspector in Charge Smith, which is the main 'documenfaccom panying General Brlstow's letter: third, a com plete copy, marked exhibit C. of the report which came as a result of the examination made when the Tulloch charges were sub mitted, and which embodies the answer and the explanation of the transactions referred to. It will be seen that the Tulloch statement and the inspector's report are practically Iden tical. At many points the language is exactly the Eame. It ia as If they were written by the same hand. The Tulloch statement was sub mitted to me. The inspector's report was sub mitted to the Fourth Assistant. It was the business of the inspector to find whatever seemed to call for explanation; It was left -to the Postmaster General to find the explanation and the truth. I This was done by probing the Tulloch state ment when it was presented. All of the trans actions described as Irregular were examined PHILADELPHIA, June 26.— Charlqs Emory Smith, who was succeeded as Postmaster General" by Mr. Payne, made public to-day his reply to the charges made by Mr. Tulloch in connection with the postofflce investigation. His reply in full is as follows: PHILADELPHIA. June 23, 1003. ANSWERS TTJLLOCH'S CHARGES. Former Postmaster General Smith '.C< Makes a Full Explanation. Fourth Assistant Postmaster General Bristow was in consultation with Chief Inspector Cochran for several hours, dur ing which the inspector carried in stacks of documents'. It is asserted that there will be at least six or seven more indict ments before the investigation is ended. In the Postoffice Department the offi cials are trying to convey the impression that the scandal has been smoothed down and that the blackest clouds are now past. This is regarded by many per sons as really meaning that important developments are in progress beneath the surface. "I'm all right," Mr. Payne declared, but his physician has advised him to take a vacation as soon as possible. Despite this, he proposes to remain here unt|l the end of the postal investigation is fn sight. Although Postmaster General Payne re mained in his apartments Vesterday, ow ing to indisposition, he attended the Cabinet meeting to-day and also dis cussed" at length with the President the latest developments in the postal scandal. He' did not go to his office. tions to-day that the postof fice scandal investigation should be vig orously prosecuted and cleared up before fall. WASHINGTON, June 26.—Pres ident Roosevelt, on the eve of his departure for Oyster Bay, gave final and definite instruc- tion with a ! cash register firm. She also saw O'Neill's name on her husband's books. "Although I know my husband had dealings with O'Neill, t never heard that there was any trouble between them," said. Mrs. Mills. "I never saw O'Neill and know nothing of him except what I learned from my husband." .' except $160 in total amount. As to those points of the explanation which were not satisfactory to me I said in my letter of May 27, and can only repeat: "I should not be altogether can did if I did not say in some cases I. was not convinced of the necessity or propriety of the transactions. These questionable transac tions consisted for the most part of placing on the roll a few persons the need of whose serv ices, was clearly shown. When these facts de veloped the proper officers were instructed that every proceeding which could not be justified should be remedied and stopped." The same report of the Inspector, made in 18W» states at the conclusion that during- the course of the Inspection, "He request ed the inspector to inform -the Inspector in charge that when he struck the names of the charwomen off the stations it would be well not to mention them In his report, as they were personal appointments of the Postmaster T C do 'not know whether this statement was made or not. but the fact is that of all the ap pointments referred to In the report I had per sonal knowledge of and personal interest In only one. That was the case of a most esti mable newspaper woman, long a successful Washington correspondent, whom I had known for twenty-five years, and who, through mis fortune waB -In much distress.* Knowing her need and being able to help her. I should have been a brute if I failed to do so. As she was on the roll of eliglbles. she could not be made a clerkand.I requested that a place should be found for her on the roll of laborers. Months afterward I learned, to my surprise, that she was enrolled as a cleaner, and. though a refined lady of education, had conscientiously been do ing a cleaner's work. Immediately I sought to find a place more suitable to her position and antecedents and happily succeeded. That was absolutely the only case of all involved in which I had any personal part. If anybody thinks the Postmaster General should know the number of cleaners and whether they were all at work. I have nothing to say. General Urlstow is entirely right in saying that he spoke to me at the time about the in spector's report. His statement would have been complete If he had added what I stated in my letter of May 27. as follows: •'About the same time Fourth Assistant Post master General Bristow informed me that in spectors had found the same apparent or actual irregularities In the Washington office.' I ad vised him. according to my recollection, of the Investigation which the Comptroller of the Treas ury had made, and of the steps which were be ing taken to rectify any wrong." - I wish to accept the largest measure of re sponsibility which belongs tq me in all these matters, but it seems due to fairness to state certain facts. The war against Spain, declared three or four days later, was dated back to April "21, 1MJ8. That was the . very day on which I. was I sworn in as Postmaster General. My first duty, before even familiarizing myself with the department, was to make immediate provisions for the letters of the scattered army of • 250,000 men, which was promptly raised, followed by provision for the full mail of the islands. The administration had been installed for more than a year. The department force had been organized, and, of course. It < was properly accepted a3 it was found. When the Immediate duty In hand was taken up It was discovered, curiously enough, that there were absolutely no records of the military postal service in the Civil War. There were no known proceedings. We had nothing to guide us. We had to make our own plans. The formation of the' general plan and policy devolved on the Postmaster General. The execution of. the de tails devolved on the First Assistant's bureau. We had at first no special appropriation and so- had to meet the requirements out of the regular appropriation. Afterward, when the appropriation became available we had to recoup the general appropriation in ordsr that the regular service might not suffer. These things were effected In part through the Wash ington officials, and orders were given which subordinate officials neither did nor were re quired to understand, and out of it has grown a vast .deal of unnecessary misunderstanding. It "is my purpose to address you respecting the letter of the Civil Service Commission on the subject, but that will more properly form a separate communication.

Late this afternoon every saloon-keeper in the city was ordered to suspend busi ness until to-morrow. In addition to this, all other public places, such as billiard, pool and bowling alleys and the public library, were requested to close to-night. This was generally done. In line wlttr the police precaution. Mayor Fisher to night issued a statement requesting pa rents to keep their boys off the streets at night. Though the streets in the central por tion of the city late to-night were filled with pedestrians, everything was quiet. The police are preventing the congrega tion of crowds by keeping every one mov ing. The lawless element among the col ored people is largely blamed for the dis order of the last two nights. It Is said that In certain parts of the town they, marched through the streets and roughly handled any white person who dared stand in their way. On the other hand. the whites are not held entirely blameless. No arrests were made to-day In direct connection with the lynching and the po lice give no intimation that they contem plate making any such arrests.

Russell, a traveling salesman of Boise, Idaho, to day began suit against Laura E. Russell for divorce, naming Clarence T. Urmy, the well-known poet and leader of the choir of Trinity Episcopal Church, as co respondent. A poem entitled "Realiza tion" by Urmy is declared to be in a great measure responsible for the break ing up of Russell's home. It is as fol lows: Some home, for oh. I did not dream How dear was our embrace. What hope lay In your kiss and voice. What heaven in your face. For now, when you are far away, My spirit acbes and cries For clasp of arms and touch of lips. And balm for ears and eyes. After Mrs. Russell had become smitten with Urmy she and her husband became reconciled and Russell took her back to her home in Idaho. Everything was going smoothly until in a New York magazine for December. 1902, appeared Urmy's poem, which Mrs. Russell interpreted as an appeal for her to return to California. In the complaint filed to-day by Russell, through Attorney J. W. Sullivan, it is set forth that tne couple were married in San Jose on July 1, 1897. The bride was the i daughter of Mrs. M. A. Spangler, now I residing at 280 South Third street. Russell was a traveling: salesman for an agri cultural implement house and his calling took him away from home a great, deal. Mrs. Russell spent much of her time with her mother, and from April *, 1901, to July 1, 1902, was a music pupil of Urmy in this city. Russell alleges that Urmy. was more than a teacher of music to his wife, and a love affair sprang up oetween them. Russell finally came to San Jose and, hearing how things stood between pupil and professor, induced his wife to go with him to Idaho. For a time he thought that she had forgotten Urmy. On November 24, 1902, he went home and found his wife weeping and reading the poem in the magazine. He took her to task and she declared she was going at once to Urmy. She demanded money to pay her way to San Jose, and when he refueed to supply her with funds she applied a num j ber of viie eslthets to him. Mrs. Russell ' told ner spouse that if he did not give her i money to go to Urmy she would pawn J her diamond ring and go anyhow. The same day she pawned her diamond ring I for $45. He declares Mrs. Kussell then came to San Jose. Other instances of his wife's derelictions are also alleged in the complaint. Russell declares that these acts of his i wife have undermined his health to such an extent that he has been unable to fol ' low his calling. He asks for an absolute ; divorce. i Clarence T. Urmy for a number of years | has been society's idol. For ten or fifteen j years he has been choirmaster at Trinity Church, and his verse has been accepted by all the leading magazines of the coun | try. Urmy this evening denied that he ! had alienated the affections of Mrs. Rus i sell from her husband or that he had j been anything more than a music teacher ! to Russets wife. He declares that Rus sell is laboring under a delusion. Special Dispatch to The Call Saloons Are Closed and Troops Await a Call to Arms. At this point a check was presented dated April 19 for $130, signed by Mrs. Ross, payable to Mrs. Worn. It was in dorsed by Miss Grace Worn. Miss Worn testified that she had no recollection of the check, but acknowledged the signa ture to be genuine. The trial will be re sumed next Tuesday. "If the court please, we claim there was a conspiracy between Mrs. Worn and D." E. Perry to obtain nine-tenths of all the property to the exclusion of young Makin. -We are trying to prove that all these papers were prepared bv Perry and typewritten by Miss Worn," and that young Makin never saw the papers until to-day." v "Miss Worn, did you ever converse with Makin about these documents?" contin ued the plaintiff's attorney. "I did not." "In your presence, did any of your family discuss the matter with him?" "They did not." "Did he know that such papers were in existence before his grandmother's death?" This question was objected to, where upon Attorney Newberg stated: Mrs. Harriet H. Sheldon, the first wit ness examined, was employed as a nurse by Mrs. Ross a long-time prior to her death. She made an interesting disclos ure. She testified that about four weeks before her death Mrs. Ross showed her a will, in which she (Mrs. Ross) left all her property to her grandson, Robert Ross Makin. This will was never pro duced. Miss Grace Worn proved an adverse witness for the plaintiff. She testified that -she was a member of the firm, of Misses Worn, florists at 18 Post street, San Francisco. She admitted that she had copied the gift deeds on a typwriter and that the copy had been furnished her by D. E. Peripr. / The deeds were dated April 24, 1901, and signed on or about that date. The wit ness would not swear she saw the papers signed, however. "Did you see the papers after they were signed?" was asked. "Yes. I think my mother showed them to me." "Were all the beneficiaries present when they were shown to you?" "Yes." "Was Robert Ross Makin there?" ""No, he was not." TALKS OF A CONSPIBACY. The plaintiff, through his guardian, "Wil liam McCann, sued Mrs. Worn, his aunt, to secure an order of court setting aside certain deeds of gift to the property of the estate and also to secure a distribu tion of the estate. Mrs. Worn claims that the deed of gift was given to her a short time before the death of Mrs. Ross. The plaintiff now claims that Mrs. "Worn used - coercion and undue influence to obtain the deed.
