Representative Cox of Ohio
yeserday Introduced In the House
a resolution directing the House
Committee on Expenditures In
the Treasury Department to In
vestigate charges made by A.
Piatt Andrew In his letters of
resignation as Assistant Secre
tary of the Treasury. The reso
"The Assistant Secretary In the
letters to the President alleges
certain deplorable conditions In
the Treasury Department, call
ing attention to a stagnation of
public business. This remark
able declaration would seem to
Index a situation calling for
Congressional investigation, and
be It therefore resolved. That the
House Committee on Expendi
tures In the Treasury Depart
ment be directed to summon wit
nesses to determine whether the
public Interests are In such a
state of demoralization."
The resolution gives the com
mittee authority to obtain all
necessary documents and exam
ine witnesses under oath.
An Investigation of the Treasury De

sult from the resignation yesterday of Dr.
A. Piatt Andrew, the government financial
expert from his office of Second Assistant

by sensational letters addressed by Dr.
Andrew to both the Secretary of the
Treasury and the President Sensational
allegations made by the retiring official
that the business of the Treasury De
partment has suffered and that the official
personnel ot the department has been
practjcally demoralized under .the ad
ministration of Secretary MacVeagh,
doubtless will result in the withdrawal of
the Secretary from the Cabinet If Con
Kress finds the situation to be as de
plorable as Dr. Andrews paints it
Representative Cox of Ohio promptly
introduced a resolution torane investiga
tion. Dr. Andrew names In hla letter to the
President some half dozen high officials
of the department who, he say s, will -confirm
his statements In regard to the un
fortunate condition of affairs In the" de
partment and of the unsatisfactory re
lations existing between the various' di
visions and bureau heads and the Secre
tary. Dr. Andrew Invites an investiga
tion by the President and gives assurance
that each of the officials named will con
firm his statements. None of the -offl-J
cials wno were in tne ciry yesterday!
would discuss the letters of Dr. Andrew,
but 'some of them appeared willing .for
their failure to deny tne statements aa
a confirmation'' of them. One official said
he felt certain of voicing the sentiment
of the others who were named, aa fol
lows: "1 have known Dr. Andrew well
officially and socially, ever since he has
been in Washington. I have every rea
son to believe that he would stats noth
