ROME, April 3. The audience

Pope did not take place, owing to
conditions which the Vatican imposed
and which Mr. Roosevelt .refused to
At Cairo Mr. Roosevelt received the"
following telegram from Ambassador
Leishman, dated March 23:
"Monsignor Kennedy, rector of the
American Catholic College, in reply
to an inquiry which I caused to be
made, requests the following commu
nication be transmitted to you: 'The
Holy Father will be delighted to grant
an audience to Mr. Roosevelt on
April 5 and hopes that nothing will
arise to prevent, such as the much
regretted incident which made the re
ception of Mr. Fairbanks impossible'."
Declines to Accept Conditions.
Replying by cable to Ambassador
Leishman on March 25, Mr. Roose
"It would be a real pleasure to me
to be presented to the Holy Father,
for whom I entertain high respect,
both personally and as the head of a
great church. I fully recognize his
entire right to receive or not receive
whomsoever he chooses, for any rea

he does not receive me I shall not for
a moment question the propriety oi
his action. On the other hand, I.
In my turn, decline to make any stip

On March 28 Mr. Roosevelt received
a cable message from Ambassador
Leishman, which concluded by say

in the former message." To which
Mr. Roosevelt replied:
"The proposed presentation is, of
Mr. Roosevelt particularly desired
the incident shall be regarded by his
friends, both Catholic and Protestant,
in America as personal, and cabled a
statement to The Outlook at New
York, in which he said:
"Through The Outlook I wish to
make a statement to my fellow Amur
cans regarding what has occurred in
connection with the Vatican. I am
sure that the great majority of my
'ellow citizens Catholics quite as
much as Protestants will feel that
I acted in the only way possible tor
an American, to act, and because of
this very fact I most earnestly hope
that the Incident will be treated in
a matter-of-course way, as merely
personal, and above all, as not war
ranting the slightest exhibition of ran
cor or bitterness.
' Many Friends Are Catholics.
"Among my best and closest friends
are many Catholics. The respect and
regard of those of my fellow Amer
icans who are Catholics are as dear
to me as the respect and regard of
those wht are Protestants." ;
In speaking of the incident, Cardi
nal Merry del Val, papal secretary of
state, is reported to have said:
. "It is not in any sense a question
of religion. Mr. Roosevelt might have
gone to an Episcopalian, a Presbyte
rian or any other church except the
Methodist, and delivered an address
there, and he would have been re
ceived by the Pope, even on the same
day. But he could not be received
when it was suspected that after the
audience he intended to go to the
Methodist Churchy in Rome, which is
carrying on a most offensive cam
paign of calumny and detraction
against the Pontiff."
