''was : increasing evidence here to
day that the 'recent bombardment
of the president with' letters from re
publican « leaders.; in all; parts of : the
country protesting that * Secretary^fof
the Interior Bailinger : was: proving an

' No attempt was made to deny
the reports_'that Senator Crane at. the
very 'outset of , his political pilgrimage
in the west, had probably suggested to
Secretary Bailinger- -at Minneapolis
yesterday that his 'duty to- the party
might '; that *. he sacrifl.ce % his
place ,in • the cabinet.'"!"' All that Secre
tary .Morton would say, after having
considered the matter carefully ; all
r day, was ( that it would be necessary to
ask Crane! \u25ba • •
President Obdurate
The ; statement was reiterated,, how
ever, that President Taft would not so
much as lift his little finger, if by-' so
doing; he icoiiid secure,' the retirement
! of , Secretary. Ballinger^as head of \u25a0 the
i interior.^department. V r : V
In ; addition to the • letters he has re

position that nothing has been provefl
against Secretary/ Ballihger,; they: have
| put the matter purely' on a' party .basis
and have said, that the campaign
would be much easier with the" Ballin
ger issue eliminated. - : "
The leaders have declared that the
fight is goingito.be a hard one at best,
and^whlle they -feel sorry for Bailinger
they regard, his presence in the cabi
net as» a handicap. • '
President Taft was frankly :told a
few days ago that s the movement' be
hind James R. Garfleld in Ohio and the
votes • cast for him in the . state con
vention were a protest' again Secretary
Bailinger: . The Ohio leaders recognized
the strength of this movement' by maki.
ing many platform • concessions to the
Garfleld wing of the .'party.
There was no; disposition in Beverly
today to treat the meeting of Senator
Crane and Secretary Bailinger in" Min
neapolis ' yesterday as ; "accidental." "{[ It
was clearly intimated,, however, that
any move, being made; against Secre
tary • Baliinger had Its', inception : with
the active party, leaders^and not. with
President r Taft. The \u25a0president, it can
be positively statedr v will never ask
Bailinger to resign:^ '\u25a0<>".:
If the secretary' should feel called
upon to resign, however, there is said
to, be little; doubt that his resignation
would be accepted. /. . '.
Crane's Visit Secret :
When Senator ; Crane went "to see
President Taft 'last Friday an attempt
was made \to keep jhis :. visit secret.
Secretary. Norton -was plainly -worried
when; he found that Senator Crane's
presence in Beverly-^had been detected;
The senator himself had made '\u25a0 secrecy'
a condition ; of ; his -coming. J
;/ It ;is \ known, that* Snator Crane -' was
sentrfor.togo'on ah important mission
for the. president .to Seattle. , . s •
•The meeting'with'Secretary Baliinger
at \u25a0 Minneapolis J suggests j a modification
of the 'original predictions- and justifies
the announcement which' followed the
interview here that C Senator, Crane
"might go* all the way; to, the coast."

'"The government offered a year for
the transformation,- which was desired"
by ther secular clergy, ..whjose existence
is gravely compromised by the monks.**-

"Cardinal Merry del ;Val demanded,
that the decree remain a dead letter,

"The recall of marquis.de Ojeda, our

relations refuses to admit the justified
pretensions of the latter or adopts as
