Mr. Taft's Talks On

disruption of President Taft's cabi

aculo distention which has nppcared
In the Interior Department. Tho
Issue has been so sharply drawn that
some Senators piedlcted today that
the Piesldent would demand the
resignations of Secretary ltalllnger
and Attorney Ucnernl Wlckcrshnm.
Tho trouble had Its Inception over
differences between ltalllnger on

reclamation servlto on the other.
Wlckcrsham was drawn Into tho Im
broglio nnd upheld llalllnger. Tnft

cabinet officials persist In their po
sition It Is believed that tho Presi

After Their Scalps.
llalllnger has been aggressive In
his opposition to both I'lnchot nnd
Newell. It Is nn open secret In
Washington that he Is determined to
get their scalps. The llalllnger
I'lnchot differences relate to forest
lands, The secretary has complain
ed bitterly against what ho terms
l'lnchot's endeavors to run Ills de

to Washington tonight, disclaims
any such intention, but Insists that
the forestry bureau shall be allowed
