AT THE GRAND TONIGHT. , Since I have been playing "The Woman Hater I have often thought of a remark once made to me by a woman," Harry Beresford la quoted as saying. "'I always smile, she sold, when I bear of a man who s bases my sex and pro-rlalm- a himself a woman hator, for I know so certainly that sooner or later that men will be led to the altar aa submissively as a lamb. Indeed, it la mi exaggeration to say that many of the most dutiful BD devoted husbands of my acquaintance have graduated Into matrimony from a condition of undisguised antagonism to the fair sex. "I really think that the lady la correct. The real created celibate is the man who never given . a asrioua thought to woman, either one way or the other. It ia always a sign of weakness and susceptibility when a man takes the trouble to proclaim himself a woman hater. He ia like the attorney who abuses his opponent when he knows that he ia going to lore his case. I have known lota of such men, and they have always met the same fite. Really, apron strings were for Just such men. They tell me you are. a woman hater," said a pretty, saucy, dimpled Utile friend of mine to a very hardened scoffer at marriage.

You may merely have seen some car dinal privately, but lue unpleasant talk over tbs affair emphasises tbe need of extreme circumspection while you are In your present poeittnn. Yhlle 1 am president and you are ambassador neither of us in bis public relations is to act a Catholic or Protestant, Jew or Gentile, and wc have to careful not merely to do what Is right, but to so carry ourselrea as to show that ws are doing what ia right. I shall ask not to quote me to auy person in any shape or any way in connection with any affair of the Catholic church and yourself not to take action of any kind which will give ground for belief that you aa an American ambassador are atriving to Interfere In the affair of the church. This letter, with its virtual assertion that my visit to the Vatican was not only unauthorised, but was so contrary to what could have been expected that the president hardly then believed that it had occurred, waa unintelligible except on the theory that he had resolved to repudiate all authority for my action and to appear ignorant of it, and waa now writing a letter which would be serviceable if needed later aa evldeace to support that position. In fact, ibis was the use to which the letter was afterward actually put by him In quoting it to persona not informed of the facts, as will appear later. I felt that the only thing tor me to do In this situation waa to tender my resignation at once, and that I immediately did, accompanying it by a letter to the president of which I regret to aay that I can find no copy. To thla I received the following reply: "White House, Washington, D. C., Jan. 29, 1904. "Dear Bellamy I have your letter. It la abaolutely all right; we will treat the incident as closed.

Thla letter was In answer to a letter of mine which be quote in part, but which lu its entirety Is as follows : "The White House, Washington, b n of the story throughout the various acts.

Assertion in Pamphlet. "There remains for me to discuss but one matter, and that la Mr. SUr-erassertion in his pamphlet that although in my letter 1 persistently refused to ask the pope to promote Archbishop Ireland to bo a cardinal, Inevertheless gave him a verbal luessage commissioning him to make the request on my behalf of the pope. Mr. 8torer also asserts that President McKinley took a similar course, commissioning a gentleman whom he named, to ask the appointment of Archbishop Ireland, as cardinal, 'as a prisons! favor to him, the president and as an honor to the country. This is the direct contrary of what Preal-- i dent McKinlsy told me was hla attitude in the matter, and Mr. Cortelyou, who was then hla private secretary, writes me as follows: " 'Office of tha Postmaster General, Washington, D. C., Dec. 1. 1906. "My Dear Mr. President In tbe pamphlet letter of Bellamy Storer to the president and the members nf hla cabinet, November, 1906. are several statements referring to the lste President McKinley, among them the following: President McKinley heartily furthered the efforts made by Mr. Roosevelt, myself end others to promote the appointment of Archbishop Ireland (as cardinal), and In the spring of 1699, he commissioned Bishop O'Gorman to say to the pope that that appointment would be considered a personal favor to him, the president aa well aa aa honor to the country. And thin the bishop did, speaking In the president's name, in a personal audience with the pope. Distortion of Meaning. Thla statement of Mr. Storer distorts what was evidently an expression of deep personal regard and respect far an individual, into what la in substance a request for hla advancement as a member of an ecclesiastical organisation. The late president never made such a request nor furthered the efforts of say one to bring about auch an appointment," nor would he permit any official of hta administration to do .so. He waa scrupulously particular in this regard and ho made no compromise with bis convictions on tbe subject "'Speaking from personal knowledge of President McKinleys attitude concerning ArchMxh'in Ireland, I wish to aav that be bud tbe highest regard for tbe archbishop and believed that, while devoted to bis church, ko was in full sympathy with Ataerican ideals and because of this he waa able te render Immeasurable service both to hla church and to bis country. But If Archbishop O'Gorman made any such representation aa that alluded to by Mrs. Storer, be did so under an absolute misapprehension. I have repeatedly beard President McKinley state that in all ruch matters be could not divorce himself from hla position aa president and that he would under no circumstances Interfere or attempt to interfere with any action with religious organisations, here or abroad, looking to the preferment to any of its members.
