The audience which It was believed that ex-Presl-dent Roosevelt would have with the Pope did not take place, owing to conditions which the Vatican Imposed and which Mr. Roosevelt refused to accept At Cairo Mr. Roosevelt received the following telegram from Ambassador Leishman, dated March 23: "Monsignor Kennedy, rector of the American Catholic College, In reply to an Inquiry which I caused to be made, requests the following commu nication be transmitted to you: 'The Holy Father will be delighted to grant an audience to Mr. Roosevelt on April 5 and hopes that nothing will arise to prevent, such as the much regretted incident which made the re ception of Mr. Fairbanks Impossible'." Declines to Accept Conditions. Replying by cable to Ambassador Lelabman on Marcn z&, Mr. noose- vejt said: It would be a real pleasure to me to be presented to me noiy rawei, for whom I entertain high respect, both personally and as the head of a great church. I fully recognize his entire right to receive or not receive whomsoever he chooses, for any rea son that seems good to him, and If he does not receive me I shall not' for a moment question the propriety of his actlonv.. . Jpn . the other, hand, L !n my turn, decline to make any stip ulations or submit to any conditions which In any way would limit my freedom of conduct." On March 28 Mr. Roosevelt received a. cable message from Ambassador Leishman, which concluded by say ing: "The audience cannot take place ex cept on the understanding expressed in the former message." To which Mr. Roosevelt replied: "The proposed presentation Is, of course. Impossible. Mr. Roosevelt particularly desired the Incident shall be regarded by his friends, both Catholic and Protestant, In America as personal, and cabled a statement to The Outlook at New York, In which he said: , , "Throueh The Outlook I wish to make a statement to my follow Amer icans regarding what has occurred in connection with the Vatican. I am sure that the great majority of my fellow citizens Catholics quite as much as Protes'.ants will feel that I acted In the only way possible for an American to act, and because of this very fact I most earnestly hope that the Incident will be treated In a matter-of-course way, as merely personal, and above all, as not war ranting the slightest exhibition of ran cor or bitterness. . ' Man Friends Are Catholics. "Among my best and closest friends are many Catholics. The respect and regard of those of my fellow Amer icans who are Catholics are as dear to me as the respect and regard of those who are Protestants." . In speaking of the incident, Cardi nal Merry del Val, papal secretary of state, Is reported to have said: "It is not In any sense a question of religion. Mr. Roosevelt might have gone to an Episcopalian, a Presbyte rian' or any other church except the Methodist, and delivered an address there, and he would have been re ceived by the Pope, even on the same day. ' But be could not be received when It was suspected that after -the 'audience he intended to go to the Methqdist Cburcb In Rome, which is carrying on a most offensive cam paign of calumny and detraction against the Pontiff."

BONO ISSUE IS UNCERTAIN Sym- Reclamation Officials Not In pathy With Movement. WASHINGTON, D. C. A new stumbling block In the way of the $30,000,000 reclamation bond Issue bill has arisen. The officials of the Re clamation Service, in testimony be fore the Ballinger-Plnchot committee and before the ways and means com mittee, where the bill Is now pending, damned the bill by faint praise. Di rector Newell and Chief Engineer Davis are not enthusiastic over the legislation; in fact at no time really have urged Its passage, though, un der examination, they have admitted they could to advantage itse more money in a season than is available out of. the regular reclamation fund. The objection to the bill will be based largely on the assertion of ex Secretary Garfield, that the money Is not needed, and on the testimony of Newell and Davis to the effect that other expedients can be relied upon to hasten the construction of Govern ment projects.

The most beautifully il N WASHINGTON, D. C Secretary Balllnger has announced that he will bring Buit against Collier's Weekly for the derogatory articles concern ing him which are appearing In thai publication. The statement that he Intends seek ing redress through the courts was made In discussing the article in tn ourrent Issue of Collier's, headed "Bal-. linger, Shyster," In which the Secre tary of the Interior Is accused of an "unpardonable breach of professional honor". ' The article in the magaslne pre sents chargest against Mr. Balllnger In connection with his action as at torney several years ago for Heck- mann ft Hansen, shipbuilders at Se attle. It Is charged that the referee of the Federal Court appointed by Judge C. H. Hanford, who Is described aa a close friend of Mr. Balllnger, "white washed" the Secretary of the Inter ior and the other attorneys concerned. Later, it was ' said, Jerold L. Finch, attorney for Heckmann ft Hansen In th1 latter proceedings, filed a petition Id Judge Hanford's court, asking for the disbarment of Mr. Balllnger and the other attorneys. It was referred to the "Bar Association, which, It was charged, "whitewashed" Mr. Ballln ger, but refused to take any action against Finch. . ,. , . Exoneration la Complete. In refutation of theBe charges, Mr. Balllnger exhibited certified copies of the proceedings In the Federal Court ln! Seattle. In which he was exoner ated by Judge Hanford, the master In chancery and a committee of the Federal Bar Association- of the charges preferred by Finch. The activity of Collier's Weekly on behalf of Former Chief Forester Glfford Pinched was brought forcibly to the attention of the Balllnger- Pin- chot Congressional committee when H. K. Love testified that John W. Dudley, former Register of the Land Office at Juneau, Alaska, told him last February In Juneau that Colliers had Intimated to him "that It would be' worth from $5000 to $10,000 t him to go to Washington and testify." Although Mr. Love told the coram"'. tee he had not previously mentioned the conversation to anybody because he feared Dudley might have miscon strued what Collier's had said to him, the committee was unanimous In the decision that Dudley should come here from Alaska to tell about It. A subpena will be Issued for him at once. "Did you understand Colliers was trying to bribe Dudley to testify?' Inquired Representative Madison. "No, I merely ' understand th-: wanted him to come here to tell tbe truth," answered the witness, explain ing that Dudley had been "let out," as Register of the Land Office and that he' had declared his Intpntici: of going to Washington to clear hU record. lustrated story that has ever appeared in our columns.
