when abrogation of the commercial
treaty of 1832 become? effective, has
been reported by Secretary of State
Knot and Russian Ambassador Bak
The exact details of the understand

Is said that an adjustment has been
made that will prove satisfactory to
both countries. A great tariff war is
thus averted ami, incidentally, another
long and provoking debate in the presA
ing-re's*! has been avoided.
It was generally reported an a.a:rer>
f "nt had been adopted between this
government and Russia as the result
of conference* between Knox and Am
b.ipsaiior Rakmetieff. (rot it was learned
tonight that the result of the diplo
matic negotiations 'an not be termed
an agreement.
Tt is simply an arrangement for a
modus vivendi to he sealed by the ex
change of informal notes and will not
have to be ratified by the T'nited States
senate. In other words , the Russian-
American passport question, which is
the fundamental involved, is to be
passed on by the present administra
tion to Wood row Wilson. The only
effect of the understanding: between
Knox and Bakmetieff Iβ to preserve
the status quo until the new adminis
tration comes into power.
Even with the best of intentions on
the part of the negotiators, because of
the difficulty of rapid communication
between .Washington and St. Peters
burg, save by the unsatisfactory cable
method, it will consume little less than
the seven weeks that intervene be
tween the present date and December
21, when the old treaty expires, to ac- i
complish this mutually desired result.
Because of the extreme delicacy of
1h» subject and the possibility of the j
complete failure of the proposed agree- ]
ment if there should be public discus
sion and criticism, neither party to the
negotiations Ifl willing to throw any I
light on the details of the arrange- j

seeiire an official admission that the j
agreement Is within sight.
From such sidelight a*s is obtainable,

a noted singer, for over a month, ac

Lurid Fake Sidelights on the
Slingsby Case Won't Save
W. W. Fraser, M. D.
For the alleged falsification of a
birth certificate, the farts of which
were discovered and published In The
Call November 4. Dr. W. W. Fraser,
formerly a practicing physician of San
Francisco, is facing serious , charges
before the state board of health.
At tlie time the discovery was made
it was stated that a young couple, anx
ious to secure an heir at law to some
property they expected to Inherit, re
placed their own stillborn baby with a
lusty child that had come into the
world at about the same time, and the
obliging doctor made it possible by a
few deft changes in the record.
Althmigh the child lias since been
inve&ted with an imajrinary Kngrlish
title and made heir to fictitious estates
that never existed. Dr. W. K. Snow,
:-■*-< retary of tlie state board* of health,
has not required these fwked side
lights to urge him on to an Investiga
tion. He has working quietly for
the last two -weeks, with the result
that Doctor Frae«t"*i liten.se banes in
a prei-arioii,- balance.
According to his original findings, a
Stillborn child of lieutenant Cliarles
Henry Raymond Slingsby, a retired
British army officer, andvhiH wife, Dor
othy Morgan Cutler SlingSby, had been
replaced in its cradle by a foundling,
whose parents, unmarried, lived in So
noma county. The incident took place
in San Francisco in September, 1910.
Yesterday Doctor Smxw made further
search of the records and found that
there was neither a birth, certificate
nor a death certificate on file for the
supposedly dead Slingsby baby.
While the state board of health con
tends that it has established the par
entage of the child claimed by the
Slinfjsbys as their own, there is no cer
tificate to substantiate the statement
that Mrs. Slingnby gave birth to a
child. The corrected certificate of
birth in the office of Doctor Snow
shows that the much discussed baby,

Friction With Secretary Mac-
Veagh Said to Be Cause
of His Action
WASHINGTON, Nov. 14.—Announce
ment of the resignation of T>ee Mc-
Clung as treasurer of the United States
was made by President Taft today.
McClung tendered hie resignation to
the president at a conference at the
executive mansion today, and its ac
ceptance was later announced by the
president from the executive offices,
with the explanation that McClung re
signed voluntarily. It Is believed that
Carml Thompson, now private secre
tary to the president, wtlt succeed him.
Mum as to Reasons
The treasurer declined to discuss his
retirement in any way today, but It
that his resignation came
as the result of continued friction with
Secretary MacVeagh. McClung was
one of the treasury officials named by
Assistant Secretary A. Platt Andrew as
having been in continued controversy
with the secretary when Andrew, in a
letter accompanying his resignation,
declared that the secretary and his as
sociates were not in harmony.
The appointment of Carml Thompson
to succeed him would be followed, It
is believed, by the immediate return
of Charles D. Hilles to the White House
as secretary to the president.
The, treasurer of the United Stales
is not appointed for a fixed term. Ac
cording to hie commission, he serves
until his successor is appointed.
Big Money Transfer
The resignation of McClung means
that the money and securities for
which the treasurer i> responsible must
be actually counted and receipted for,
This will be the greatest single finan
cial transaction in the history of the
world. When McClung assumed the
duties of treasurer he gave a receipt
j "to. liis predecessor for $1,250,134,
--946.88 2-3. This was the largest single
transaction from man to man on rec
ord. "While the exttct amount the
treasurer's fund is not- known, it is
expected it will exceed those figures by
many million^

Democrats Add to Uncertainty
by Mandamus Proceedings
in Los Angeles
On the fare of the complete official
returns from all but San Francisco,
Lob Angeles and Yuba counties and
the unofficial returns from those coun
ties, Roosevelt has a plurality of 72
over Wilson.
Pending- the outcome of mandamus
proceedings started in Ijos Angeles by
the democrats yesterday, the official
compilation of the California vote can
not be made and the result must re
main in doubt. Unless the action in
stituted by the democrats results in
substantial changes from, the totals of
; the unofficial count in Los Angeles, a
divided California electoral vote seeme
The announcement of the semiofficial
returns for San Francisco yesterday
showed a net gain of 31 for Roose
velt. The completed canvass in Ala
meda county resulted in a gain of two
for Wilson.
Los Angeles Holds Key
The key to the mystery of the Cali
fornia vote is in the Los Angeles re
turns, and the announcement of the
Los Angeles officials can not be made
earlier than next week, and the action
brought by the democrats may result
in delay of another week.
In the figures showing Roosevelt
with a lead of 66 no account is taken
of the g«tn of 72 for Wilson reported
from Los Angeles.. That gain is unof
ficially admitted,, but the admission
will have no significance until the
canvass Is completed.
A private dispatch from Los Angeles
yesterday disclosed that the democrats
purpose to allege invalidation of the
returns from eeverai precincts on the
ground that they were opened in secret
four days before the supervisors met
as a canvassing board.
