THE GR E MT
HERBERT W. BOWEN DISMISSED
FROM HIS POST.
President Roosevelt Approves Secre
tary Taft's Report on Controversy
and Scathingly Arraigns Former
United States Minister to Venezuela.
Washington, Juno 21. The dis
missal of HorhiMt W. Howcii, lor sonic
yonrsi United Status minister to one
zuola, and tho exoneration of Assist
ant Sec-rotary of State Francis H. Loo
nils of the allegations brought against
hi tn by Mr. Howen, are the outcome ot
thu Loonils-Howon controversy, which
lias attracted wide attention lor many
mouths past. This disposition or tin
case Is made by President Roosevelt
in a letter addressed to Secretary
Taft, approving Mr. Taft's leport on
his findings and conclusions In the
case. The piesldcut scathingly ar
laigiib Minister Ilowen, di elating that
his conduct is "especially repiohensi
hie;" that Mr. Howon ashed one of
his witnesses to enter the employ ol
a certain company for the purpose,
"In plain words, of stealing" docu
ments which he honed might incrim
inate Mr. l.oomis and that Mr. Itowon
has "evidently for many months. In
deed for the las-t two yeais, devoted
himself" to hunting up scandal and
gossip until it became a monomania
and caused him "to show complete dis
loyalty" to the country he represent
ed. The president says he had hoped
to promote Mr. Howon, as during much
of his service ho had done good work,
but that his usefulness In the diplo
matic service Is now at an end. The
piosldent adds that he would direct
that Mr. Ho wen's resignation be re
quested, but for his statement that
he would consider that loslgnatlon an
admission of misconduct and the dis
missal Is therefore ordered. The let
ter quotes correspondence and tests.
The president states that it appears
that Mr. Bowen, while minister, se
cured the publication of attacks on
Mr. U)omis and furnished to the press
documents pending before the state
denartment for approval and that his
conduct is inexcusable and shows his
"entire unfitness" for the service.
Even If Mr. Ixomis had been guilty,
says the president, Mr. Howcn's con
duct would be unpardonable. The let
ter quotes certain correspondence and
testimony. The report of Secretary
Taft on the case, on which the presi
dent's action Is based, is a voluminous
document, reviewing the charges and
the evidence taken.
In his report Secretary Taft says
that there was nothing dishonorable
in the transaction In which Mr. Loo
mis figured, but that he was not dis
creet. This report says that Mr. Loo
mls was not justified In becoming per
sonally Interested in any of the
schemes either with a mere nominal
ininwci nr substantial Interest. He
holds, however, that Mr. Loomls has
been "most cruelly slandered," com
mands him for the self restraint with
which he has met the charges and
points out that Mr. loomls' bitter ex
perience In this case makes It unnec
essary to point out the moral that a
minister cannot afford In the country
to which he Is accredited to make per
sonal Investments, etc.
