Considers Failure to See Pope
Purely Personal Incident
and Avoids Criticism
Cardinal Del Val Criticised on AH
Sides and Opposition
Takes Up Cudgels

GEXOA, Aprii 7. — Though Theodore
Roosevelt has disappeared from public
graze all Italy as well as Kur'ope is dis
cussing with interest the incidents in
which he figured at Rome.
There is not the slightest doubt that
in so far as the Vatican element is
concerned cudgels against Cardinal
Merry del Val will be taken up with
renewed vigor. This clement objects
to the way in whirl) ho has been hand
ling the foreign «iffairs of the "pope.
They feel that he bungled the French
situation and is now dealing in a like
fashion with American affairs. This is
exemplified in the first Fairbanks inci
dent and the Roosevelt affair, which
has brought serious discredit to the
Vatican. The cardinals, however, are
powerless, since Cardinal del Val owes
his appointment as secretary of state
to the pope alone and it is hardly likely
that an attempt will be made to sup
HAS STROXG PREJUDICES
The opportunity I had to meet Del
Val convinced me that while he is
strong, lie was unfortunate in having
prejudices that are calculated to warp
his judgment. This is fully recognized
by many cardinals and priests outside
the Vatican, as is shown by their ex
pressions since the Roosevelt incident.
Colonel Roosevelt is naturally taking
no part in the criticism of Del Val and
i 6 ftot manifesting in the slightest de-
Rree that he entertains any feeling over
the failure to be presented to the pope.
Writing relative to two well known
cardinals who sent him an enthusiastic
letter praising his conduct, he said that
lie had acted solely on principle and
that he regretted that he had failed
f> have the honor of meeting the pope.
He added that he did not entertain the
slightest resentment or rancor, but that
he continued to regard the incident as
a purely personal one.
REMEMBERS HIS FRIENDSHIP
As further evidence of Catholic ap
proval of Roosevelt's attitude the fact
may be said that the head of one of
the strongest Catholic institutions in
Rome left his card, on which was writ
ten his earnest thanks for all Roose
velt had done while he was president
for the Catholics in America and say
ing that had he acted differently in
connection with the proposed audience
he would have failed to observe the
principles which has distinguished his

I have given my idea of the situa
tion of the two camps in Rome, a
view showing the dissension which ex
ists among the respective leaders and
members of each, a condition which
might easily have been avoided had
neither sought to make capital at the
expense of the other out of the visit
of the former president.
Roosevelt in the meantime pursues
the even tenor of his way, enjoying a
renewal of his honeymoon and forget
ting the unpleasant incident which will
make his stay In Rome history. He
and his wife reached Spezzia this
morning and immediately took a car
riage that was in waiting and drove
slowly toward Genoa, where more trou
ble is impending in the shape of Gif
ford Pinchot, who will arrive at that
London Plans Reception
LONDON. April 7. — The committee
appointed to arrange the reception and
luncheon which the city of London will
give to former President Roosevelt is
already at work and is determined to
make the affair one of the big events
of his tour.
The committee will depart somewhat
from the severely formal customs that
prevail upon the visits of monarchs
and will seek to bring together rep
resentative Englishmen irrespective of
their official position.
The Tablet, the organ of the Roman
Catholic church in Great Britain, com
menting upon the Vatican-Roosevelt
incident, says that the correspondence
involved affords melancholy reading
and that the public the world over
thinks the whole "tragedy of errors"
was due to "talking by cable" instead
of through written communications.
Pope Expresses Regret
ROME, April 7. — Some of the promi
nent ecclesiastics who were received
by the pope today managed to intro
duce the subject of the Roosevelt in
cident. To these the pontiff expressed
the deepest regret that he had been
prevented from meeting the former
president, but he gave utterance to no
opinion regarding the negotiations or
the deadlock that followed.
The incident continues to be a live
topic of popular discussion and is em
phasized by what the liberal press
calls the new mistake of Cardinal
Merry del Val.
Hold Del Val to Blame
PARIS, April 7. — The Matin today
declares that the treatment of Roose
velt by the Vatican meets with disap
proval in the highest and most im
portant ecclesiastical circles, including
many members of the sacred college,
who hold Cardinal Merry del Val and
not the pope responsible. These prel
ates point out that Roosevelt has al
ways shown the most profound re
spect for the Catholic church and now
that church has offended him.

PRESS CLUB WILL
The Press club of San Francisco is
making arrangements for a "Four
Years After" celebration to be held at
the Garrick theater Sunday night, April
17. Each year since the big fire it has
been the custom of the Press club to
give an entertainment commemorating
the pluck that was shown immediately
after the fire as well as during it, and
the courage that was manifested on all
sides in the work of reconstruction.
It is announced that the entertain- i
ment this year will surpass in interest
that of any previous benefit given by
the club, and the committees are busy
at wo/-k perfecting all arrangements.
Talent will be provided from the club*
membership, as well as from the dif- ;
ferent theaters which have volunteered
to supply the best acts available. The
program will thus be diversified and
every number interesting.
The entertainmpnt committee is com
prised of the following club members:
Thomas G. Springer, H. A. French, Gus
Keane, Randall Borough, Barnett
Franklin and Walter Anthony.
A souvenir program will be dis
tributed containing contributions of
verse, story and essay by well known
local newspaper and magazine writers.
Tickets are now being disposed of
rapidly and may be secured from mem
bers of the club or at the club head
quarters in the Commercial building.

After an extensive investigation of

that several houses which Mrs. Harper
conducted in Chicago were mysterious
ly destroyed by fire, together with the
insurance carried on the Hibernia hotel,
prompted the police ta take this action.

CLEW TO BODY OF
VICTIM IS FOUND
ABERDEN. Wash., April 7. — It de
veloped this afternoon that the
searchers for the body of John Hoff
man, who have been dragging the
Chehalis river since Klinkenberg made
his confession, late, yesterday after
noon brought up from the river at a
spot a few feet from where Klinken
berg 1 said the body of the murdered
man was sunk a piece of cloth which
has been partially identified as a por
tion of Hoffman's coat. The search
was resumed today, but developed
William Gohl, the sailors' union
agent, who was arrested shortly after
the body of Charles Hedebergr, the
murdered . sailor, was recovered, was
permitted to see his wife at the Mon
tesano jail today, but they were not
allowed to exchange confidences, and
it is believed that Gohl has not been
apprised of Klinkenberg's confession.
Reports that Klinkenberg shows
signs of mental weakness and that he
has created a disturbance in the jail
are officially denied.

MARKET AND JONES STREETS, SAN FRANCISCO
"OPEN DOOR" IDEA
PROVES A EARCE
Policy Holds Only So Far as the
Pacific Mail Company Is
Continued From Paxe 1
inson. declares, contrary to; the policy
of the "open, door" that he has stated
Pacific Mail a Monopoly
"But the Pacific Mail needs no such
agreement," Henry S. Bates protested.
"It holds a monopoly of the field. We
only want to be assured that our car
goes will be handled."
"But to agree to handle your cargoes
would be to show you a- preference,"
Dickinson reiterates. \u25a0 "We do not so
agree with the Pacific Mail."
And Bates & Chesebrough and all
shippers here recognize that the sec
retary is demanding sailings every
two weeks, which would require the
service of three steamers at least, and
at the same time holding over their
heads the threat; that the cargoes car
ried by the three expensive steamers
may not be taken care of at the
"Open Door" Is a Theory
Which means that the former Harri
man chief counsel, when driven, after
months of negotiations, to declare
himself, refuses to admit a competi
tor of the Harriman steamship line.
' One of the chief duties of the secre
tary of war is the operation of the
Panama railroad company, another
name for the United States of America,
which conducts the railroad across the
isthmus of Panama, and operates, in
conjunction with the railroad, a line
of six steamers to and from New York.
One of the duties of these half dozen
steamers is to carry supplies to the
canal zone for the government work
there. Another duty is to transport
freight for the Pacific Mail steamship
In theory there is an "open door" to
all who may desire to run steamship
lines to and from San Francisco and
receive the benefit of the government
steamers and railroad. For 25 years
prior to November 15 last there was an
agreement between Pacific Mail
and the government that each should
take 50 per cent of the charges on
air through freight from New York
to points north of San Jose de Guate
mala. Under all the secretaries of
war that served during these 25
years the agreement remained the
same. Dickinson came in under the
Taft administration, and last Novem
ber he granted the Harriman steam
ship line 70 per cent of the charges on
through freight, and the government
thus retained but.3o per cent of it.
War Secretary on Grill
For this the secretary of war was
called before the senate investigat
ing committee and grilled in a series
of questions that drove him to ex
tremes to answer. Finally, to show
that he was eager to foster commerce
on the Pacific, he cited that he was
conducting negotiations with Bates
& Chesebrough- of San Francisco even
then regarding the establishing of a
new line. Now the investigation has
passed into history, and Bates &
Chesebrough have been denied the
right to operate.
From the first the local firm agreed
to all that Dickinson demanded. ' In
the beginning he wanted them to bond
themselves as a proof of good faith,
and they avowed their willingness to
do so. This though the Pacific Mail
schedules no bond. Then he demanded
sailings every two weeks, and the firm
agreed. They guaranteed 100,000 tons
of cargo per annum.
After this open offer of the local
shipping firm Dickinson was silent for
Don Michele Ruo,
Late Head of the
two weeks, and then, in answer to re
peated requests for a decision, he finally
answered that he would not agree to
handle, 50,000 tons of cargo each way
per annum. He previously asked the
flrrh to .bond themselves to supply that
quantity, and then refused himself to
agree to handle it.
"The government could not recog
nize the principle of giving one shipper,
subsequent in time, preference over
one" who was prior in time," Dinckin
In vain Bates* and Chesebrough have
objected that no preference was being
shown them. They declared that they
but. wished to be assured that, if they
bound themselves to deliver a certain
amount of freight, the government
would agree, to handle it.
Dickinson Played for Time
Finally Dickinson wrote to Bates and
Chesebrough that he was considering
the drawing up of new forms of con
tracts for shipping across the isthmus,
and that he could not consider any new
contracts until the new forms had been
decided on. This meant a delay of at
least a year, and the local men wired
for permission to operate simply under
Pacific Mail conditions. To this the
answer came that they were welcome
to do so, but that the government
would not agree to handle the freight.
So the field is clear, as it has been,
to the Pacific Mail.
