OT6TER BAT, N. Y., aug. S. President
Roosevelt was exceptionally busy for sev
eral hours today, disposing of an accumu
lation of jubllo business. By luncheon
time, however, he bad -cleared away the
mass cf offlclal correspondence and was
ready to receive the attorney general and
Mr. Knox, who arrived from New York
about noon. They will be the guest of the
president and Mrs. , Roosevelt untU tomor
row. It is understood that Attorney General
Knox wtll all shortly for' Europe, where,
in Prance, he will devote some personal at
tention to the Panama canal question.
It Is quite probable now that the proceed
ing looking to a determination of the abil
ity of the new Panama Canal company to
pas a clear title of the property to the
foiled State will be conducted In the
French courts. While the administration' la
nxlou to have the matter passed uB
oon la practicable the question of time
will be secondary to .that of certainty that
the United State will have no trouble with
the stockholder of the old Panama Canal
company If the property and right of the
new company should be acquired by. this
country coder the Spooner act. , V
The president, upon whom the responsi
bility rests, will take no chances upon the
result of extended litigation In which the
Vnltsd Etas might become Involved If the
property of the new Panama Canal com
pany ware purchased before It had been de
termined judicially that the company pos
' ceased the absolute right to convey a clear
title te this country.
Trouble ,1a a Kiatairul.
To a representative of the Associated
Press Mr. Knox confirmed the report that
be had had a personal difficulty with a
party of men In Atlantic- City last Wednes
day night.
"It was en of those disagreeable Inci
dents.' said be, "that sometime occur In
a restaurant or other public, place. Ac
companied by Mr. Knox, my daughter and
two or three friend. Including District At
torney Youngs of Pittsburg, I was dining
In the restaurant of the Garden botel. A
party of men. Done of whom I knew, seated
themselves at an adjoining table. Their
conduct was unseemly and boisterous. They
talked loudly and tbelr comment upon
member of my party and opon me were
Insulting, to put it very mildly.
"Ia the elreumet&nces. accompanied as I
was by ths women, I could not resent their
actions or tbelr words at that time. They
evidently were seeking trouble, so without
sltracttog any more attention than possi
ble. I got my party out of the restaurant.
"Than I returned," continued Mr. Knox,
with a smile, "to see if the men really were
looking for me. I think they were, for
r.r-'T 5"! I erprricfccd ttca when they
tprKg up. One of theia aimed a blow at
toy stomach, but It failed to refcch me. ' I
save no Idea who he was. Whst happened.
to fc'.m I ant not irvired to aay. Those
things occurred very quickly. 1 am quite
aliased, however, that be does not feel
is weil today as I do. You will note that
t era looking first-rate."
"You do not know who were in the party
If your as&alUnts?" the attorney general
eas asked.
"Not positively. I understand that
tharlea T. Schoea of Philadelphia, and one
If the Cramps, also of Ph ladrlphla, were
tn the party, but even of that I am not at
ill positive.
"What actuated them I Ao not know. A
lewspeper of today said that It had some
ihlog to do with niy attitud en the trust
utiloa, but that seeiua entirely unlikely,
as they sat at the table, in ths restaurant,
they made no reference to the action which,
la auonitr geaera.1, I have taken against
tertsia so-called trutte. Their remarks
ere persoual to me and to my family and
ere of such a nature that I could do moth
tig but re .rot them.
"I understand that after I left the res
taurant at the roncluaioa of the difficulty
the waiters suppressed tho crowd with
tome energy."
The atioroey general evidently was not
at ths leant injured by his assailants, and
is he chatied about the trouble, did sot
wb to rttird It very seriously.

itor of The Bee: . Although a subscriber
to The Bee. I take issue against certain
remarks In today's editorial entitled, "An
Appeal to Conservatism." Thus, when you
apply to American Catholic the collective
name of ect" you commit yourself to
historical and etymological blunder. The
English noun "sect" Is derived from the
latin verb "secsre'-to cut oft; but It an
never have occurred to you that the Cath
olic church In America is a dead branch
of the universal church governed from
Rome. Your mistake would be even then
odious .to every Catholic,- If you would

the apostles; It was lacerated at tlmea, but
not severed, by the apostacy of -some of
It member (who alone constitute the sects
historically and etymologically). ,
Second While It Is true that every Cath

Ireland, from religious and civic reasons, it
must never b .assumed J hat. this prelate

American Catholic public. The friars ques

siastical and civil bearings, and hence one
may preserve a different attitude from
Archbishop Ireland in this natter, without
incurring the stigma of being uncathollo
and unpatriotic, , even is a republican.
Especially so, e'nee the holy see made it
plain to Mr. Taft and Secretary Root that
it could not, in Justice to lta own aense of
right, be a party to the precipitate action
suggested by the secretary's Instructions,
and both these gentlemen have apparently
been converted to that view. . For the ad
ministration has accepted the program sub
mitted by Cardinal Rampolla at the opening
of the conference, and future negotiation
for the settlement of all question wtll be
concluded at Manila. Archbishop Ireland'
appeal becomes less, meddlesome, because
this new turn of affair will minimis the
danger of overstepping the rights of the
friars by hasty action and of violating the
nation's honor. Nevertheless, since be I

polntmrnta for the Omaha fir and police
' Receipt of your communication under
date of Ana-jet I hereby acknowledged.
I regret that 1 em required to take Ibsuo
with you s regards your -construction of
my ertlnn In appointing the Board of Fire
and Police CommleMoner for the city of
Omaha. My sole aim in the performance
of this duty was to eetect a commission
that, when vested with the power Incident
to their offlcei, would have some regard for
the lights of organised society and the
laws of the state. This required me to
exercise thought end,' circumspection, and
that the commission' as selected did not
ircltide all the names of those who were
candidate wss, 1 regret" to say, not en
tirely due to the large supply and limited
number to be chosen. Some of the candi
dates I refused to appoint because I knew
something of them, while others were not
appointed because I did not enjoy their ac
quaintance. There were still, others who
failed of appointment because their candi
dacy savored of corruption the best evi
dence of which was en effort to obtain
the covetPd position with large sums of
money. Fearing that personal aggrandise
ment waa responsible for much of the In
triguing, and concluding, from wHat In
formation I gathered during the contest
for appointment, that one who occupies a
position on the commission. Is at all time
In range of evil Influences, I determined
upon selecting-only men of known char
acter and standing, whose conception of
duty wss. not to multiply the emoluments
of the office, but to maintain the majesty
of the law. Startling reports reached me
of municipal corruption," and this, tosether
with the fact that large, sums of money
were available In exchange for executive
pleasure, led me not alone to conclude that
much of what whs safd was true, bjt that
the commission should be of men known
personally to me to be honest and honor
able. In making the selection I weighed
carefully the merits of every candidate, In
cluding the candidate supported by or-
f anlxed labor. Just as I had agreed to, and
rem the large number I selected the four
who In my Judgment came the nearest to
meeting the exacting requirements, ths
wisdom of which act. the future will de
termine. " .Poor Oalaloa of OrcaalseJ Labor.

Speaking again of the commission, per
mit me to assure you that it represents
labor no less than any other of the better
elements of society. Because those nomi
nated by organised labor were not ap
ptlnted It does not follow that labor 1s fiot

Among the callers at the republican state
headquarters today was O. R. Robinson of
Niobrara, Knox county, who ba the dis
tinction of being the youngeat sheriff In
tne etste, being Juct 2 year old. Mr.
Robinson was one of the officers in the First
regiment of volunteer and ha for year
been one of the foremost of the young re
publican of Knox county. .
People up our way have begun tn mani
fest lnterert in politic and I feel safe In
predicting that, to county will give an In
creased majority to the republican candi
dates," aald Mr. Robinson. That Is saying
good deal for Knox county, for until re
cently it waa in the fusion column with
a big difference against us. In 1899 the
county gave the Bryan elector (40 ma
jority. In 1900 the majority for the Bryan
elector waa 23. That show what pros
perous times and republican enlightenment
baa don up there, but still lb doesn't tell
the wbola tory. Until last year the
fuslonist bad complete control of the
county government. Now the republican
bold very eounty office except coroner and
superintendent ot erhools. ,
'J. J. McCarthy seems te b doing snrj
effective work throughout the district and
all Indications point to his success at the
election." continued Mr. Robinson. "Knox
county had a candidate tn the person of
George A. Brooke, but there are no sore
spots because be wae not nominated and
Mr. -Brook himself has said that h will
go Into the fight as earnestly a though
he were the candidate.".
Another visitor la Lincoln today was
D. E. Smith, chairman of the Polk county
republican committee. He conferred with
State Chairman Lindsay this afternoon re
garding plan tor campaign work In his
section of the str.te and gave the assur
ance that Polk county will this year re
deem itself by going back into the select
class of republican counties.
'"It wtll be a hard fight in Polk' county,
but we expect to win," aald Mr. Smith to
the reporter. "The fact that Mr. Mickey
resides in our, county will give na a big
advantage. We feel surs that the fusion
majority will crumble away and that there
will not only be a majority for the bead
of the ticket, but the other state candi
date and some of the other a well. Ia
1896 the fusion majority waa approxt
mately ifO. In 1000 It was Xt0 and last
fall was something over 100. The repub
llcan candidate for county superintendent
lacked only aeven vote of having a ma

From Nuckolls county, which was fusion
until the 1900 landslide, come reports of a
nature calculated to gladden the hearts ot
those Interested -in republican success.
Chairman F. E. Bottenfleld of the central
committee ef that county talked over the
local situation with ths managers of the
state campaign today. The conditions there
ar somewhat similar to those prevailing
In Knox eounty. In the period of business
depression the fuajonlsts relied up a major
ity which la ltst waa 250 votes on the bead
of the ticket. In 100 the McKlnley ole-tor
