" Wamiinotov, Sept. Lawrence O.
Murray of New Yorit, Comptroller of tho
Currency. "t intimate, friend of Col .
Roosevelt's, may bo asked by President
Taft to vacate his offico. Republican
Naders have' been urging the President
for llirco weeks to dispense nith tho
services of Comptroller Murray.
Diseatisf action on the part of Secretary
MncVeogH and other Treasury officials
with Mr. Murray' administration of tho
office of Comptroller and alleged dls
ioyalty to tho Republican party aro the
reasons that have been given the Presi
dent why Mr. Murray should bo asked
to resign. Tho opinion is expressed in
official circles in Washington that Comp
troller Murray's name will not much
longer remain on the Federal payroll,
It was learned In Washington to-day
.hat Charles D. nillo, olialrmau of tho
firpublican National Committee, has re
cently discussexl tho caso of Mr. Murray
with ' President Taft. Chairman Hllles.
who has taken tho position that political
disloyalty by Presidential appointees
hall be summarily punished, has made
it clear to th President that it is his
opinion Mr. Murray's connection with
tho Administration should be severed.
While Mr. Murray's presence In the
Vltnlnlstration has long been distasteful
to certain Republican leaders, the present
attack upon the Comptroller was pro
voked by an act that Chairman Hllles
and others believe amounts to a declara
tion of hostility. to the candidacy of Mr
Taft for reelection .
Homo weoks'ago, it was learned to-day,
mn representing the National Committee
asked Mr. Murray to prepare a chapter
for the party text book discussing ques
tions of finance and setting forth the
accomplishments of the Comptroller's
branch of the Treasury Department In the
Administration of Mr Taft. Mr Murray
failed to comply with the request.
His friends explained that ho did not do
so for the reason that he was not disposed
to plaoo himself in a position where he
might be charged with taking aides In
the Presidential campaign.
Friends of President Taft In Washin gton
insls. that Mr. Murray's failure to con
tribute a chapter to the party text book
was not prompted by a desiro to hold
aloof from the campaign. They charge
that Mr. Murray is a Bull Mooso and that
aa such he should bo forced to retire from
the public aervioe.
There ia another count in the indiotment
of Mr. Murray as a sympathizer with the
Progressiva party. Home weeks ago
a bank examiner was appointed in Oregon
on the recommendation of Henator Jona
than Bourne. Mr. Bourne has been on
the oute with President Taft for mora
than two years. In the last session of
Congress, Senator Bourno delivered a
speech in Which ha criticised President
Taft in severe terms. Recently Senator
Bourne issued a statement in which ho
announced that he would support Cot.
Roosevelt in this campaign.
Republicans say it is rather peculiar
to say the least that Comptroller Murray
nhould have honored an indorsement
of Senator Bourne in viow of the circum
stance mentioned, that must have bcou
known to Mr. Murray.
There has been bad feeling between
certain officials of tho Treasury and
Comptroller Murray for several months.
It grow out of the episode that followed
the resignation of A. Piatt Andrew from
the office of Assistant Secretary. In hU
letter of resignation Mr. Andrew severely
denounced Secretary MaoVeagh, charging
among other things that he was incom
petent. He named a numbor of Troaaury
officials who, be said, entertained the same
view, among them Comptroller Murray.
All of thoae mentioned by Mr. Andrew
.is holding a poor opinion of Secretary
MacVeagh's administrative ability, with
he exception of Comptroller Murray,
afterward wrote letters denying the views
imputed to them by Mr. Andrew,
It Is presumod that the Comptroller
(fused to write such a letter, as Becro
try MacVeagh, immediately upon the
publication of the Andrew obarges, called
,pon the officials designated to state their
eeepectlvn opinions of tho cane.
Mr. Murray first ontored the public serv
ile u Assistant Secretary of Commerce and
labor by appointment of President Roose
velt Aa Mr. Murray was a Democrat
tut wlectlon aroused ti good deal of
nticism. In tho Roosevelt admiuis
ration Mr. Murray was a promlnont
guru in Washington. He was a frequent
-'ml caller nt the White Houso and was
u member of the "tennis cabinet."
'I he Comptroller Is the only officer
tf-iow Cabinet runk who makos his re
torts direct to Congress instead of to tho
Mad of a department. The Secretary of
Treasury exercises very little, If
'iy, authority over tho Comptroller,
1'iMibl haa been expressed that President
I Hf i could removo Comptroller Murray.

deavoring to find some method by
which they may prevent Mrs. Alice
Holland from talking horstlf to death.
The woman apparently doesn't want to

The strango part of tho malady Is
that tho woman Insists that some person .
be present to listen to her. If sho Is
left alone sho talks to the hospital walls,
but she shrieks for some person to
ccme within hearing.
Physicians have examined her for
an Injury to the head, but hnve been
unable to find any. As a last resort t
they diagnosed her caso as ono of acute '

have absolutely no effect upon her. 1
