Inside Story of Break with
British Ambassador
Maj. Stuart, Persona Non

Kept at Post
These are tragic days in inter-

powers are beginning to foul the
president of the united Ststcs. The
Aortauc question is one oi a cnain
of Incidents which may or mar not
be the outgrowth of the controversy
between the executie and legislative
branches or our government.
But I am able to present In this
article the facts about a sensational
episode in diplomacy which may shed
some light on the relations between
viscount Grey and president Wilson,
and may explain the undertone of Irri
tation which some people have pro
fessed to see recently in Anglo
American relations.
Asked Recall of Maj. Stuart,
or the fact is that D resident Wil
son asked for the recall of Maj. C K.
Craufurd Stuart, personal secretary
of viscount Grey, and failed to get
his wish. To those persons who have
believed that Mr Wilson need only
nod his head and the British will do
his bidding, the incident reveals a
surprisingly uncompromising attitude
on the part of lord Grey, which must
have given president Wilson offence.
A one but the president can
ay whether It had anythlne to
do with the fact that lord Grey
was not rcrelved at 'he white
house. Denbtleas the president
physician prevented it. But peo

Maj. Stuart himself appealed to

to stay saying the stories were un
true. Lord Reading was soon to de
