WASHINGTON, Jan. l.-aeratary Root,
while appearing before tha house appropria

of tha State department, spoke frankly
concerning the shortcomings of tba Amer

Mr. Root, which have Just been made pub

Representative Livingston, tha secretary
'There are a great many consulates that

some that are still In that condition, and RED SUNDAY WILL BE QUIET
the fact arises from several causes. One 1
cause la that consulates are used and re- Revolutionist ay. Desire of Oovera

to say that sort of thing without anybody

for himself I do not think that then la the
time to start him out tn a new place, where
he has got to learn a new' business and
push the commerce of the country."
The following statements were then made
by Mr. Root In reply to questions of mem
bers of the committee:
Mr. Brundldge I quite agree with you.
Mr. Secretary, as to that, but upon whom
rests the blame for that condition?
Secretary Root It rests upon a long
standing custom, whereby the executive la

has grown up, just like this deficiency cus
tom. When you step into change a custom
you cannot change It by piecemeal; you
have to jar something. Take this con
sular bill which Is now pending. When It
was Introduced it contained a series of
provisions under which the consulates were
in be graded. The original appointments
made were to be only to the lower grades,
und the upper gradea were to be filled by
promotion, so that we would catch fellows
young while they still had some motive
power left in them. These provisions have
been stricken out and the bill reported
without them. Still, the bill makes a great
advance over the present system.

the aid of a revolver, persuaded J. B.
Jackson, who was alone In the store with
his wife, to remain passive while they
secured the contents of the cash register.
People were passing on the sidewalk out
side, but as no noise was made and no one
came into the store, there was no Inter

Securing the money, they hacked up a

Mr. Jackson said' "I had not noticed
anyone hanging around the store previ

men before. They wore no masks, and their
features were plainly discernible. Both
of them appeared to be over 10 years of
age. but not over 24.' '
As soon as the robbers had disappeared.
Jackson notified the police, and every avail
able man was sent to watch for suspects.

which the woman alleged had developed
while on shipboard, and report the same
to him. He further said that If the hus
band of the woman, as had been alleged
In telegrams passing between Mr. Kennedy
and Omaha, had Indicated his Intention to
become an American citizen and had mad
a declaration to that fact, he saw no rea
son why Mrs. Salutsky should be detained
further, providing the disease was not of
an Infectious character. Iter Mr. Sargent
was Informed by the medical authorities at
Ellis Island that the disease was of a tem
porary eha'aelcr and that they saw no
reason why the woman should not be
placed In the hospital connected with the
island until a cure was effected, which
the physicians anticipated would be In a
Deelaratloa Too Lata.
All this was based upon the promise that
the first essentials of citizenship In the
"-Ited States hnd been complied with on
part of Salutsky. Yesterday a telegram
i received that the husband of the
woman had not made his declaration until
January 15. It was so apparent to Com
missioner Sargent that Salutsky, either be
ing Ignorant of the law or had no Intention
of becoming a citizen until after the matter
of his wife's detention was brought forcibly
to him, that he decided the woman must
return on the next outgoing vessel.

senate Committee Decide, that Wit
ness I. ot Worthy of Belaat
WASHINGTON. Jan. 1. Tiie senate com
mittee on lnteroceanlc canals has postponed
until next week consideration of the recal
citratlon of Poultney Blgelow.
Before the meeting several members said
they had slept over the case and are now
disposed not to make a "martyr" of a wit
ness, "whoso testimony appeared to be of
too little value to dignify his conduct with
summary punishment." It was decided that
further discussion In executive session
should 1st had. however, to determine
whether the witness should be given an
other opportunity to become amenable to
the demands made of him.
Senator Hopkins offered a resolution
certifying Mr. Higelow's contumacy to the
vice president for action In the courts and
asked that It be adopted. Several demo
cratic senators opposed this course and
Senator Simmons addressed the committee
at length. He declared that It was an
extraordinary penalty that was proposed
and contrary to common law. He sug
gested that the courts might refuse to act
on the certification, which he asserted
would prove most emharrassini;.
