Friction "in Department, Sends
ACTION IS AFTERMATH
OF DR. ANDREW CASE
Retiring Official Sends Letter to
President Expressing His
Lee McClung, Treasurer of the United
States, resigned from the government
service j esterdaj". His reslgnaUon was
accepted by the President, to take effect
upon the qualification of his successor.
Carml Thompson, of Ohio, now secretary
to the President, will be appointed to the
vacancy. This appointment will permit
Charles D. Hllles. former secretary to the
President, to return to his old post when
he closes up the affairs of the Republican
The resignation of Treasurer McClung
means that money for which the Treas
urer is responsible must be actually
counted and receipted for.
This will be the greatest single flnan
cial transaction in the history of the
world When Mr. McClung assumed the
duties of Treasurer he gave a receipt to
his predecessor for J1.2G0.134.94S.8S 2-3.
That was then the largest single trans
action from man to man on record While
the exact amount of the Treasurer's fund
is not known. It Is expected that It will
exceed those figures by many millions.
Aftermath of ndrcvv Crtse.
Mr McClung s resignation Is an echo
of the friction between Secretary of the
Treasury MacVeagh and Dr A Piatt
Andrew, who resigned last July as As
sistant Secretary alter- making public a
letter to President Taft criUclzlng Sec
retarj MacVeagh's administration and
charging him with lncompeteno and
Inefficiency Mr. McClung was on friend
1) terms with Dr Andrew and was
named bj Dr Andrew as one of the
bureau chiefs of the Treaury who had
similar a tews and could substantiate his
accusations against the Secretary
Mr McClung Intended to take similar
action and write a letter to the Presi
dent protesting against the conditions
in the Treasury under which he had to
serve Upon the urgent advice of his
friends, however, Mr McClung never
signed or forwarded his letter to the
W hlte House He gae a copj of It,
however, to Secretarj Andrew, who
without Mr McClung's authority used
It in hut open letter to the President
Shortlj after Dr Andrew retired from
the government serlce Secretary Mac
Veagh called upon all the bureau offi
cials mentioned bj Dr Andrew for a
statement of their attitude toward him
All of them denied Dr Andrew s
charges except Mr McClung. who re.
malned silent. Since that lime his rela
tions with Secretary MacVeagh hao
been formal and perfunctory His res
lsmatlon has been generally expected, and
while no one In authority will admit
it, it Is generally believed that he was
asked to resign Here Is Mr McClung's
letter of resignation, which he handed
to the President this morning
Letter of Heslsrnatlon.
"November 13. 1913.

HEN -IS TO BLAME FOR
HIGH COST OF EGGS, SAYS'
GOVERNMENT HEN EXPERT
The hen .herself, according to Dr. Harry
M. Xanon, the government's ben expert.
Is chiefly responsible for the high price
of eggs. Speculation, he said yesterday,
might have added something to the price,
"However, this la the moulting season
for chickens," said Dr. Xanon. "It's the
time when the hens are expending all
their energy In throwing off old feathers
and taking on new ones, and they haven't
any time for egg-laying. Although In
some cities consumers are paying 70 cents
a dozen that Is. the wealthy consumers--
I don't think the average market price
all over the country will rise to mere man
K or 60 cents, and this price will fall
when the moulting season is over. '
FOR THE DISTRICT
Continued from Pane One.
the Eno report, combining this with
parts of the existing District regulations
and drawing also upon regulations In
force ln'other cities
In a frank interview with a represent
ative of The Washington Herald yester
day. Gen. Johnston admitted that
expected strong opposition from certain
quarters to some of the regulations he
has decided to recommend to the Board
of Commissioners But he Indicated
very clearly that he believes the present
situation calls for stringent remedial
measures and that he will pursue the
course he has determined upon In max
Ing his recommendations to the Board
and. in the event of their adoption. In
their administration by the Police De
May Br Trstrd in Courts.
That certain of the proposed new regu
lations will have to stand the test of the
conrts. Gen Johnson feels sure, and In
anticipation of this, he Is framing them
with the greatest possible care. The
police powers of the District government
are. of course, delegated by Congress, and
the new regulations must not exceed the
police aithoritv already delegated They
do not anticipate new legislation.
One regulation to which Gen. Johnston
admits he expects strong opposition re
oulres that vehicles, upon overtaking
street cam which are receiving or dis
charging passengers, must come to a full
stop This regulation, which Gen. John
ston has adopted, on the recommendation
of MaJ Sylv ester. Is Intended to do away
with a source of constant danger to peo
ple boarding and alighting from street
cars Gen Johnston is strongly In favor
of this, although Mr. Eno's report does
not recommend such a course
Two regulations will be recommended
to prevent collisions between vehicles,
particularly collisions resulting from ve
hicles leaving a stationary position at
the curb turning suddenly around In the
street without regard to passing convey
ances One regulation will require that
before turning, the vehicle which has
been stationary must go forward at least
twice, lbs length The second will require
that means be afforded the driver or op
erator of ever vehicle to see behind hlrn
and on either side This last rule would
require that In cases of hoods and cover
ings to meet Inclement weather condi
tions small openings be cut In the back
and sides, so that a driver or operator de-s-rlng
to turn his vehicle may be able
first to ascertain what is behind him and
on either side.
May Revoke Licenses.
Placing a severe Interpretation Jpon the
law which authorizes the revocation of
1 censes of operators when such operators
are coisldered a menace to public safety.
Gen Johnston will recommend that any
serious Infraction of the regulations bj
the operator of a motor-propelled vehicle
tr considered cause for theTevocation of
his license. This he will apply In cases
of exceeding the speed limit In the city
and In similar Infractions.
"The driver who operates his veh'-!e at
an Illegal rate of speed is as much a
menaVe to public safety as the man who
does not know how properlv to drive his
car. said Gen Johnston esterdaj "I
shall trv to cmploj the power of revoca
tion rlgldlv regardless of whom It
strikes If it hits some of my best
friends. It will make no difference "
"A regulation requiring that every ve
hicle concerned In a colllson shall come
to a full stop, regardless of how unim
portant the collision may seem, will be
as rigidly enforced as the speed limit
regulation Violations nf this regula
tion will 1k provecuted under the sever
est possible construction of the law, re
gardless of the extent of the damage
done in the accident ' This. Gen. John
ston feels. Is the onlj available means
for dealing with such Incidents as re
sulted In the killing of Charles Satter
fleld at Fifteenth Street and Pennsylva
nia Avenue Southeast Friday night
Must Kilucnte Public.
While the fixing of an efficient set of
police regulations Is essential in any
movement to better traffic conditions.
Gen. Johnston agrees with other authori
ties that the education of the public to
the rules, and the co-operation of the pub
lie In their enforcement, are no less es
sential to Its ultimate success. This has
been the course pursued in other cities
and In Washington the campaign of edu
cation will be carried on vigorously.
through the medium of convenient pock
et folders and signs and posters contain
ing a concise digest of tne regulations
for the guidance of operators and pedes
"Two things are essential in any move
ment to better traffic conditions," said
Gen. Johnston "First we must have
a comprehensive set of.regulatlons and.
second. we must make It possible for
the public, pedestrians and drivers, to
leam the regulations. Moreover. In the
administration of the regulations we
must have the co-operation of the public.
This is particularly easy In Washington,
where every automobile and business
vehicle and public carriage has a number.
It Is the duty of every citizen who wit
nesses an infraction of a traffic regula
tion to report It at once to the pqHce
department or to any officer who may be
at hand but who failed to witness the
Infraction TheiC further, citizens should
be willing to appear In court against
violators of the regulations, a duty many
are extremely unwilling to perform.
"We should have a large number of
convenient pocket folders containing!
short but comprehensive digests of the
regulations. These should be available
to every one. and officers ,of the police
force always should nave a number with
them. When an officer witnesses a tech
nical infraction of a traffic regulation,
and which appears to be the result of
Ignorance, he should be able to hold up
the culprit, hand him a copy of the regu
lations and point out to him wherein he
has violated them.
Many who are loudest in declaiming
the need of new regulations are surprlse-
lngly Ignorant of the regulations now In
force. A more general knowledge of
these regulations would help tremen
dously." Two Women Dying;.

William Jennings Bryan Talks to
Students of Georgetown
RAPS CERTAIN LAWYERS
William Jennings Bryan addressed the
students of the Georgetown University
Law College in. their auditorium at $.30
o'clock last night upon the subject of
He told them that no man could be
considered ready to begin great works
of life until he has brought himself In
near and vital accord with the Creator
He said that he wished he could Im
press on all the young men present that
the first requisite for success In life was
faith In God.
In speaking of government, he said
that the people have a right to make
mistakes, but that no person or group
of persons have the God-given right of
making mistakes. He said that the
masses will err in things of government,
but that thez will correct their errors,
as they have no Interest In making
"I have known many men since I have
been acquainted with public affairs who
started out with brilliant prospects and
have fallen, and I have yet to know of
the first real failure In life that was not
attributable to a breakdown In the
morals of the man." said Mr. Bryan
"Morality Is the power of guidance In
man A man who only does right when
he thinks people are looking Is sure to
find a time sometime when he thinks
they are not looking, and then he falls.
Tou cannot put enough policemen around
a man to keep him straight If he has no
Inner sense of right"
"The lawver has more temptation to do
wrong than any other class of menj
know. We need to-day the lawyers who
trace their responsibility back to a Cre
ator We need men In this country prac
ticing law who will not sell their souls
to do evil
"If a man who Is going to rob a train
takes another man along to hold a horse
at a convenient place, you say that the
man who holds the horse Is equally as
nutlty as the actual robber, and the day
will come when these lawjers who fur
nish legal horses upon which the crim
inals of socletv escape will be held equal
ly responsible with those criminals.
I desire to Impress upon our minds
the Importance of this word "faith." and
I want vou to remember the kinds of
faith that I have suggested to you. faith
In vourself. a faith that Is to have a sub

Gov. .Wilson's term as president of.
Princeton was fraught with bitter con

resigned. He accepted the nomination

CAUSES FLOOD OF CRITICISM
The appointment of Larz Anderson,
now Minister to Belgium, to be Ambas
sador to Japan, succeeding Charles P.

of criticism against the administration
for selecting Mr. Anderson for the post
Larz Anderson has long been a close 1
personal friend of President Taft. He
contributed $3,000 to tbe Taft campaign 1
in 1903, and also made a contribution to
the campaign of 1912. His appointment i
to the legation at Brussels, In August,
1911. was regarded here at the time as
purely political. Though he had been
In the diplomatic service In minor ca
pacities from 1S91 to 1S37. Mr. Anderson
never reached the grade of"MInlster. and
from 1897 until his appointment to Brus
sels, had not been connected with the

dent might well have chosen for the
post at Tokyo some member of the dip-,
lomatlc service who had earned a pro
motion. Instead of a wealthy man whose .
last appointment Is but little more than
a year old. The promotion of efficient
men In the diplomatic corps has been
repeatedly claimed to be the policy ofl
the 'Tart administration. Instead of thai
old method of making ambassadorships I
and ministries plums for the faithful '
political workers. It was even sun-est-'
ed last night that in view of the Investi
gation Into campaign contributions by
the Clapp committer of the Senate, there
might be some disposition upon the
part of Senators to oppose the confirma
tion of Larz Anderson's appointment as
Ambassador to Japan
Mr Anderson is now on his way
across the Atlantic, having recently been
In the United States on leave. It is un
derstood at the. State Department that
he will return to Washington, where he
