"1 am your commander-i.t-chlef," said
the president, "and as such 1 am entitled
to your loyalty and support. I do not
plead for It as a matter of compulsion, for
I know that I have It anyway. I never

War Shows Oar Patriotism.
"It Is an Inspiring opportunity to stand be
fore an audience like this and to think
what you represent. N'o one Is In favor
of war. No one Is In favor of suffering
and no one la in favor of any obstacle to
living that we have to overcome. But after
war has come; after we have passeu
through four years of loss of life and
treasure, of wounds and suffering, we see
that In that great struggle was the op
portunity for the United States to show
the mettle of which Its oltixens were made
and the sucrlfices they were willing to
make that the government might live.
"The great war could not be avoided.
' Some people seem to think that It might
have been, but I do not. There existed
a canker, which could be removed only
by an operation such aa the war afforded."

History of Strange Affair Began One
Week Ago With Press Disclosures.
STATE OFFICIALS CRITICISED
Oasted Man's ' Defense Reflects Se

Mar Casie Embarrassment
Itlr Is Created.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 12,-Charles R.
Crane of Chicago, minister designate to
China, today was practically deposed by
a demand from Secretary Knox for his
Thus a new chapter In American diplo
macy was written. A cltisen, chosen with
special regard for his qualifications for
the post was recalled before he had em
barked from San Francisco and discharged
from his high office because of alleged in
discreet disclosures through the press.
Moreover, this minister, breaking through
all the old traditions, insisted on defend
ing himself from the aspersions cast upon
him by the secretary of state by the Is
suance of a statement which most people
here comment upon as certain to be em
barrassing to the administration.
The history of this extraordinary affair;
which began about a week ago with the
announcement that Minister Crane had
been stopped at San Francisco at the mo
ment of embarkation for his post by a
demand from Secretary Knox for hli re
turn to Washington, reached at least Its
first crisis soon after noon today, when
the secretary, in a formal statement, an
nounced that Mr. Crane's resignation had
been invited and the minister designate
replied in an equally formal statement
that, although his resignation already had
been tendered to the president, he felt
himself unjustly treated. .
Moreover, Mr. Crane, . In his statement
reflected severely upon the officials of the
Statk department, charging that not only
had they refrained from giving him the
Instructions usually used to a minister or
ambassador about to leave for his . poet,
but that he had been denied access to
them even after he had made repeated
appointments with them.
He enters a sweeping denial " of the
charge that he "gave out' a newspaper
story which is a id to be the cause of his
deposition, and places squarely upon the
shoulders of President Taft the responsi
bility, for the various utterances he has
made regarding conditions In' the far east
which have aroused the Ire of .Secretary
Knox and for final action upon his resig
nation. Mr. Crane's statement la as follows:
"The statement Issued by the Depart
ment of State is slightly Inaccurate In say
ing that the secretary has Informed me
that my resignation will be accepted. The
letter I received from Mr. Knox at noon
today says that he has recommended to
the president that the president accept my
resignation. Before this letter had been
received by me I had already sent to the
president, through his secretary. Mr. Car
penter, the following telegram:

"The statement of the department Is fur

a newspaper story' about the preparation
of a protest in regard to the agreement
between China and Japan. It would have
been more accurate If the statement had
said, as was Indicated In Its own closing
paragraph, that a brief conversation of
mine with a newspaper representative con
tributed to the publication by him of a dis
cussion of this agreement and the possi
bility of a protest by the government and
that the department regarded this con
versation as 'Indiscreet. The publication
referred to did not mention my name nor
In my Judgment would it have been a
mistake If the Department of State had
not chosen to vouch for Its accuracy and
give to It an official significance by Its
own conduct. It certainly contained noth
ing of substance that was not matter of
common knowledge or deductible by any
competent newspaper reporter from facts
commonly known. The substance. If not
the full text, of the agreement had been
published and its effect had been widely
discussed. As an Illustration of this the
New York Herald had published on Sep
tember the fallowing dispatch:

NEW YORK, Oct. lX-irhe following
statement of Commander Robert K. Peary,
which he submitted, together with map, to
the Peary Arctic club In Support of hit
contention that Dr. Cook did not reach tlu
North pole, is now made public for thi
first time. The statement and map have
have been oojryrighted by the Peary Arctic
(Entered according to Act of Congress, In
the year 1909, by the Peary Arctic club In
the office of the Librarian et Congress at
Washington, D. C.) ,
Introduction By peary.
Some of my reasons for skying that Dr.
Cook did not go to the North pole will be
understood by those who read the following
statements of the two Eskimo boys who
went with him and who toloj me and others
of my party where he did go. Several Es
kimos who started with Dr. Cook from Anor
atok in February, 1S0S, weri at Etah when
X arrived there In August, im They told
me that Dr. Cook had witn hlra, nfter they
left, two Eskimo boys or young men. two
sledges and some twenty, je. .Tfce.bpxs

klmos told me. in a general way whece
Dr. Cook had been; that be had wintered
In Jones Sound and that be had told the
wftlte men at Etah that tie had been a long
way north, but that the boys who were with
him, I-took-a-shoo and Ah-pe-lah, Bald that
this was not so. The Eskimos laughed at
Dr. Cook's story. On reaching Etah, I
talked with the Eskimos there and with
the two boys and asked them to describe
Dr. Cook's Journey to members of my
party and myself. This they did In the
manner stated below.
(Signed) R. E. PEARY.
Statement of Several.
Signed statement of Peary, Kartlett. Mc
Millan, Horifp and Henson, In regard to
testimony of Cook's two Eskimo boys.
The two Eskimo boys, I-took-a-shoo and
Ah-pe-lah, who accompanied Dr. Cook
while he was away from Anoratok In 1908
and 1909, were questioned separately and
Independently, and were corroborated by
Panikpah, the father ' of one of them
(I-took-a-shoo). who was personally fa
miliar with the first third and the last
third of their Journey, and who said that
the route for the remaining third, as shown
by them, was as described to him by his
son after his return with Dr. Cook.
Notes of their statements were taken
by several of us, and no one of us has
any doubt that they told the truth.
Their testimony was unshnken by cross
examination, was corroborated by other
men In the tribe, and was elicited neither
by threats nor promises, the two boys and
their father talking of their Journey and
their experiences in the same way -that
they would talk of any hunting trip.
To go more Into detatlsr One of the boys
was called In, and, with a chart on the
table before him, was asked to show where
he had gone with Dr. Cook. This he did,
pointing out with his finger on the map,
but not making any marks upon It.
As he went out, the other boy came In
and was asked to show where he had
gone with Dr. Cook. This he did, also
without muklng any marks, and indicated
the same route and the same details as
did the first boy.
When he was through, Panikpah, the
father of I-took-a-shoo, a very intelligent
man, who was In the party of Eskimos
that came back with Dr. Cook from the
northern end of Nansen's strait, who Is
familiar as a hunter with the Jones sound
region, and who has been In Commander
Peary's various expeditions for some fif
teen years, came In and Indicated the
same localities and details as the two
Then the first boy was brought In again,
and with a pencil he traced on the map
their route, members of our party writing
upon the chart where, according to the
boy's statement, they had killed deer, bear,
some of their dogs, seal, walrus and musk
oxen. The second boy was then called In and
the to went over the chart together, tne
second boy suggesting some changes as
Finally, Panikpah, the father was again
called in to verify details of the portions
of the route with which he was personally
The bulk of the boys' testimony was not
taken by Commander Peary, nor In his
presence, a fart that obviates any possi
ble claim that they were awed by him.

state board of public lands and buildings
will be ready to make Its official report
of Its Investigation of the Grand Island
Soldiers' home. The report has been
agreed upon and only awaits the signa
ture of the secretary.
The board will exonorate the merchants of
Grand Island, who it ta alleged did not
deliver goods according to contract. It
will condemn severely the management of
the Institution, charging Incompetency and
carelessness. It will censure the manage
ment for permitting the farmer and his
family to live In the hospital to the great
annoyance and Inconvenience of the sick
- Commander Barnes' orders that medicine
may be secured at the dispensary only at
certain hours will be condemned severely
and the commandant orered to permit the
soldiers' to secure . medicine whenever
needed. The management will be criticised
tor the very unsanitary condition of the
home which the ' report describes as "In
tolerable." The management will be criti
cised for not permuting the adjutant to
ithnve a sot "ot books or free access pr the
books of the institution. .
The order of the commandant that the
old soldiers refrain from buying fruit,
papers and other things from persons com
ing to the home with such things for sale
was denounced as unreasonable and useless
by the board and the commandant was
ordered to revoke his rule which was made
without any authority from the board.
The report will simply be spread on the
records of the board, aa there Is no one
except the people in general to whom the
board Is required to report.

by Colonel L. A. Welsh of the weather
bureau-got In its work with a shivering

caught many unprepared.
Tenants of the Ware block on the south

cold snap caught W. A. Paxton changing
boilers and remodeling his heating plant.
Several days ago a huge new boiler was
lowered Into place, but connections have
not been made and as a consequence the
tenants had no heat. The Missouri Pacific
ticket office housed a score of ticket
agents and clerks who shivered with their
overcoats on. Lawyers and doctors on the

DETROIT, Oct. lj'k-Detrolt defeated
Pittsburg. S to 0, today and evened up the
count In the world's championship series,
each now having two - victories to Its
credit. The game was played with the
mercury at 31 degrees above zero, but
17,035 persons braved the 'chilling tempera
ture and freezing blasts and the great ma
jority of them felt Well repaid for their
polar experiences beoause they were with
The American league champions out
classed their rivals In every department '
and the pitching of George Mullln will
make one of the brightest hits In the base
ball history of Detroit.
It Is hard to conceive of any pitcher
having his opponents more at hla mercy
than Mullln had Pittsburg today.
There was never a moment when he was
not the absolute master of the situation
and he was at his best with men on bases.
Four hits represented the ability of the
visitors and no two of these were made
In the same Inning. '
Mullln performed a feat In the third In
ning that will live In the annals of base
ball and was frozen on the minds of those
who saw It. In the third Inning he struck
out Wagner with two out and men on
second and third. That was counted a
great feat, but Just previously he bad
struck out Manager Clarke, a hard hitter,
with men on first and second. A double
steal on Clarke's third strike moved the
men to second and third, where they were
wnen w agner came to bat. Lelfleld was
also a victim on strikes In this same In
ning, giving Mullln three strikeouts In one
session. All told he struck out the Visitors
Detroit's Kite Mean Tallies.
Detroit scored because It was able to hit
when hits meant runs. Stanage. Jen
nings' young catcher, distinguished him- '
self In the secuud ' innuig. by send
ing Detroit's first two runs across
the plate with a drive Just out of
Miller's reach. In the fourth Inning Bush's
ringing double Into the overflow crowd In
the left field scored another run, and It
was Immediately followed by another two
bagger Into the same place by "Ty" Cobb.
The onslaughts of Detroit In the second
and fourth Innings drove Lelfleld, Pitts
burg's star left-hander, from the slabr and
he was succeeded by the veteran PhHllppI,
who was able to stem the Detroit tide, al
though they pressed him hard In the eighth
Inning. Eight hits were made 6y Detroit,
and six of those came In the two Innings
when the scores were made, only two being
Outside of Mullln, there were no atara
on the Detroit team, but their ensemble
work was brilliant. Every man did the
right thing at the right time, and only one
fielding slip marred the -otherwise perfect
Frost Damau-rs tie Pirates.'
The told apparently affected the Pitts
burg fielding far more than It did Detroit's,
as the National league champions put up A
miserable exhibition in ' that department.
Six errors were charged to the Infield Ab
stein. Miller and Phtlllppt getting two
each. The six errors detract little credit
from Detroit's performance, As Only one of
them figured In the seorlng. .
The conclusive victory of Detroit has
toppled Pittsburg fro'in Its position aa the
favorite in the betting and even money la
now being offered as . a more equitable
Indication of the relative merits of the two
major league champions. The teams left
for Pittsburg tonight and the fifth game
will be played at Forbes field tontorrow.
The scene will then shift back to this elty,
where the sixth game Is scheduled )
Detroit is celebrating Its victory In due
style tonight and the American league
champion supporters are more than confi
dent Detroit will be successful In Its third
attempt to win the world's base ball cham
Hans Wagner failed ! to star as he d.d
in yesterday's game. At the bat he was
helpless before Mullln.., The first time up
he was lucky enough Ho draw a base on
balls, but was forced 'out at third.. Tha
third inning saw his ipemorable airlkeoul.
In the sixth he sent aj hot liner Into Tom
Jones' hands and In tp ninth he was ah
easy out, Muriarlty to; Turn Jones. In the
field he had two put obts and four assists,
but most of them wete of the easy sort.
His best play came l( tho fourth Inning,
when he fumbled a ifrounder by Stanuge
foi the fraction of a necond, recovered It
quickly and touched Second, forcing 'ion
Jones, and then threw to first in time to
double up Stallage. ,
Mallin, the Diamond Master.
Cobb maue one hit,, a two-bagger, and
reached first once when he was hit by
Lelfield. The other two times the Georgia
star tried to beat out bums in front of the
plate, but Gibson threw lilrn out both
times. In the field he. had only one chanoa
and accepted that gracefully.,
So thoroughly did Mullln do his wdrk
that there were only six balls hit It the
outfield. Three of tlteSe were safe tills and
the other three were divided, two tliea to
Crawford and one to Cobb,
Pittsburg thrraiened 10 Score In the Sec
ond and third Innings. After being retired
In the first session, Wagner drew a base
on balls In the stcond. Miller struck out.
Delehanty then made the only error for
Detroit when he fumbled Absteln'S giounder
and Wagner moved to second. Wilson hit
to Mullin and Wagner was forced at thlitl,
Mullln to Morlarity, tson was easy,
Mullin to Tom Jones, retiring the side.
Pittsburg's real opportunity to score came
