WILSON SUMMONS HOUSE
IN HASTE FROM BRITAIN
LONDON. Juno 10.-"IS there any pos
sllblllty of Colonel E. M. House becom

being asked hero among Americans, who
learn that Colonel House's departure for
New lork last Saturday was at tho re
quest of President Wilson.
Colonel Houso, who had not Intended
to leave bo soon, left In a great hurry
and with some secrecy. Until jestcrday
the American Embassy carefully refrain

Colonel House recently returned from
the Continent, where he visited Germany
and France, seeing high officials In both
countries. After his return ho settled
down for an extended stay, and as the
unofficial agent of President Wilson saw
Sir Edward Grey, Prime Minister Asquith
and virtually all other men of Importance.
In' tho Government. There Is also reason
to bcllove he saw the King. He has been
making constant confidential reports to
tho President In a private code.
It Is thought certain here that Colnnd
Houso haa been recalled on account of
the Bryan resignation. If this Is so, the
President foresaw last week what would
WASHINGTON. June 10.-Xews that
Colonel E. M. House suddenly had been
summoned to tho United States was not
accepted here as Indicative of any pos
sible Intention by tho President to offer
him the Secretaryship of State. When
President Wilson assumed office lt was
well understood that Colonel House could
have had any office within the gift of the
Chief Executlvo but ho told the President
his ambitions did not lie along the lines
of holding Government office.
Colonel House Is a man In whom the
President has the utmost confidence and
the one man with whom he discusses with
frankness and freedom any and otery
subject. It Is believed here that Colonel
House Is hurrying back with Information
of an Important character collected dur
ing his European trip, particularly In
Berlin, where ho had advantages extend
ed to him seldom enjoyed by visitors of
so unofficial and Informal a status as
that under which he went abroad.
