Gov. Bates Irritates British Ambassa
Washington, Oct. 2.—Soreness pro

In spite of heroic efforts to check its
growth and prevent further publicity
being given to the incident. Gov.
Bates is the cause of the latest display
of annoyance on the part of the state
department officials. They consider
that he violated all the proprieties in
the case by giving out his letter to the'
department and the apology of Justice
Phelps, and that the general tone of
his letter, and his suggestion that the
incident be called to the attention of
the British ambassador showed im
pertinence. As the affair involves a
diplomatic question and the friendly
relations between the two nations,
the state department officials believe
that they should be permitted to
handle it without any outside interfer
ence and to tell the public as much or
little about their actions as they saw
fit. Beyond arousing the feeling of
the Washington officials and the Brit
ish ambassador, Mr. Bates' action is
not likely to affect the case one way
or the other.

ABILITY TO RETAIN NOURISH
MENT CONSIDERED A HOPE
Washington, Oct. 2.—The condition
of Postmaster General Payne, whose
serious illness was announced Thurs
day night, continued extremely grave
throughout yesterday. There were
times during the day, notably in the
early morning and late In the after
noon when the attending physicians
believed the end was near at hand,'
but the patient responded to the he
roic remedies applied and seemed to
regain some of the lost ground. Last
night about 8 o'clock Mr. Payne fell
into a restful sleep, which continued
for some time. The doctors regarded
this as encouraging.
Several bulletins were issued by th©
physicians during the day, and all of
them indicated the critical condition
of the patient.
Greatest Cause of Alarm.
The greatest cause of alarm was
the feebleness of the heart Action, and
it was found necessary to administer
saline solution and nitroglycerin to
stimulate that organ. Only moderate
ly severe doses were given, however,
and in most cases the result was grati

to be active and alert. He asked fre
quent questions of those about him,

One or more physicians are con

evening. He said that while Mr.
Payne's condition was critical, he hact
hopes that with a restful night he
would show improvement in the morn
ing. At the same time, he added, th©
case was like a "tip in the balance—
it might go one way or the other."
Everywhere in official circles the
deepest concern and solicitude was
manifested in the outcome. The pres
ident is being kept constantly advised
during the day, and both he and Mrs.

Fall River, Mass., Oct. 2.—The 24,

of idleness, can count up a wage loss
of $1,500,000. The seventy-one mills
affected have lost much less money
during the quarter because of their
