day in Andrev s resignation and a pro
posal for a congressional Investigatioa
of Secretary M acVcagh's administra?
tion
I Representative C'o.\. of Ohio, pre?
sent' d resolution for such an lnves
tlgaflon to the Mouse after he had read
j.Mr. Andrew's letter of resignation to
President Taft
Andrew's letter to the President cre?
ated a profound sensation. Ho declared
that energetic young n-.cn in the treas.
jury had been "hampered and discour?
aged at . very turn by Secretary Mac
V'eagh's Idlosyncractes. his a-t tunding
; capacity fo. procastinalion. his Inca?
pacity for dee|S|OI, and the peculiar
! moods of suspicion and aversion to
j which he Is constantly subject."
Andrew also Informed President Taft
that Lawrence O. Merray, Comptroller
of the Currency. L*e McClur.g, Treas
i ur'-r of the United States, and oth.-r
high official* of the treasury were prac?
tically unable to transact the business
! of their offices because of Secretary
'MarVeagh's moods, which Andrev- says
"would see.m inexplicable In a man of
normal mind."
In a long letter to the President. .Vr.
drew state..] that his predecessor,
?'harles D. Norton, later secretary to
President Taft, and Cr.arles I> Hilles,
who also left the treasury to go to the
White House, were compelled to sub?
mit to the same conditions under Sec?
retary MacV..ugh as were Impose! upon
him. and says Mr Ma A'eagh for weeks
at a time would have no relations what- j
ever with his assistants, while gov- j
err.ment business waa delayed. An?
des' wrote the President that conduct
of the public business under sucn con?
ditions was impossible and that the
treasury's business was practically at
a standstill.

Cabinet in December. IMP.
Letter to the President.
Dr. Andrews" letter tt the. President
scys in part:
"In presenting my resignation of
the ofhec with which you have favored
ine. I deem It proper to acquaint you
With conditions which ittve existed in
the Treasury for the last two years at
least, and which are oj grave concern
pot only to every offiriai ;n the Treas?
ury, but also to the many thousands
; throughout the countt y. who have
i business to conduct with this depart
i me lit.
I "For a long time the transaction of
! much of the Treasury's business has
; been at a standstill, and an outbreaK
of some sort has b*on imminent? Many
I tble and energetic Treasury officials
ihave had to bear the trunt of harsh
' criticism from people outside who
j have suffered interminable delays in
their business with the Treasury, for
which the secretary alone was respon
I siblc. and at tha same time they have
I had to submit to criticism even more
?' harsh and more undeserved from Mr.
MaeVeagh himself, whenever he dis?
covered that they ha dventured to act
Tupon some matter om minor lmport
arcs without awaiting his decision.
"Time and again heida of the great
' divisions of the Treasury have found
; themselves unable to tarry on the
business Intrusted to them and have
; been discouraged to the verge of ro
i signing their positions because they
iwere unable to obtain r.ny opinion or
I decision from Mr. MaeY'e-agh upon ur?
gent questions which had been before
j hint for many months. At the same
i time they have been Invariably re?
proached by him for wuch limited ar.
' tion as they have been compelled to
? take on their own responsibility.
"Mr. MacYcngh's mental attitude is
difficult to realize by ?hose, who have
not had intimate, every day experience
with it. Toward many of tha higher
Treasury offieials he has from time to
time displayed an aversion, suspicion
and distrust, which. In view of the
I Tact that these officials were me nof
his own choice, would seem Inexpllc
. able In a man of normal mind. For
? many months at a time he has persiBt
1 cntly refused even to speak to those
i officials of his department with whom
. he should naturally have been in con
I stant personal communication.
'?< urlously Suapcuded It-. lotions.''
I "When Mr. Hilles was Assistant Sec
j retary of the Treasury there was at
, least one period amounting to several
weeks during which Mr. MaeVeagh re
: fused to have any relations with him.
I know that there were several longer
' periods of curiously responded rela?
tions with Assistant Secretary Norton.
Mr McClur.g. the Treasurer of the
l.'nited States, affirms that he has only
. been allowed one short Interview with
the Secretary during a period covering
more than a year. Mr. Ralph, the di?
rector of thf Bureau of Engraving
and Printing, has repeatedly complain?
ed of similar treatment of himself, and
? many other Instances could be sighted.

as to his plans for a campaign, said
to-day;
?I shall stay here and attend to my

to my duty as I see It and make any
sort of a campaign. I can do one of

making any campaign or I can put the

But that Is all In the future, an I I have
not given it consideration.
"It Is past helle! and hardly worth
saving, but it is nevertheless true thai
I am not an ambitious man. and 1
think that very lack of ambition has
saved nr.e from a good many tempta?
tions that might otherwise have arisen
in this controversy. Public office has
meant to me a ptiblir trust, not a pri?
vate snap. I do not make this state?
ment Pharisaically, because ordinarily
we want to watch tin. man w-ho cries
?Stop thief:' hut I make it In tile light
of my five years- public service, which,
counting my one year of campaigning,
have put me S1.S00 In debt.
"From a monetary standpoint, there?
fore, there has been nothing in It, but
the time and money have been all
spent. At the close of my official term,
when the shouting and tumult shall
have died away, and Uie calm and dls
1 passionate opinion of the people of
Indiana shall have been given concern?
ing my administration, they shall say:
'He made US a fairly decent, respect?

That was Colonel Roosevelt's utter?
ance to-day. when a party of his lead?
ers conferred with him .>i Sagamore
Hrll. The talk had drifted to the
prospect of Roosevelt carrying enough
.States to beat Woodrow Wilson. His
leaders impressed upon him that they
wanted him to remain In the fight
'even If he felt he was doomed to de
! feat in November.
Roosevelt disabused the minds of
' his stalwarts of any Idea that he was
afraid to go on with the battle. He
' reminded them that he bad started
the third party before the Baltimore
, convention met and the progressive
. move was not to be Influenced by the
! candidacy of Woodrow Wilson any
! more than by that of Presl-ent Tatt.
Detleve He Will Mick..
Tire Colonel's supporters left the
I conference satisfied that Roosevelt
I will keep on with hi scampalgn up
to November. In the conference With
the ex-President were George \V.
T'erklns. his chief financial backer In
the. convention campaign: ex-Senator
Fllnn. of Pittsburgh; B. A. VanVal
Kenbirg. of Philadelphia: Senator Dlx
I on and Frank A. Munaey. They hart
i Just left a conference at the Mnn
I hattan Hotel In New York, at which
the scope of the campaign was taken
! up. With them In the New York con
| ference were other progressive lead?
ers. Including james R Garfleld and
I Medlll McCormlck.
It was said after the conference that
I Roosevelt will devote hlm.iel
?next few weeks to. digging Into Wil

' sor's progressivem, with the settled
purpose of painting him, on the stump,

bcohfe'rence with the third party lead
i era. excepting to say they had talked
lover the light to he waged In the var
I Ions Slates.
, The appearance of Perkins at Saga
j more Hill Indicated that the financial
j support the ex-President had in his
preconventlon war win not be with?
drawn. For a few days thoro has been
talk that Perkins was tired of It all,
and that the ex-President's third party
aspirations might fail because of lack
of money. Perkins has been scouting
around to see what can be done, and
he confided to Roosevelt to-day that
I sufficient funds' will be scraped up to
j see him through to election day.
j Roosevelt accepted the desertion of
I Governor Osborn, of Michigan, one of
the original seven Governors, to the
I Wilson camp with a show of phlloso
i phy.

The Colonel has ft stack of letters
and telegrams at Sagamore. Hill from
prominent men the country over who
? have thrown themselves Into his third

I every day. The call for titty new party

COMMITTEE GOES
TO SEAGIRT TO-DAY
"Little White House'' Is Be?

Who Wish to Get Glimpse
of Democratic Party's New
Standard-Bearer?He
Doesn't Mind It.
Baltimore, Md.. July 3?Members ot
the Democratic National Committee
indicated to-night that the plan and
scope of the presidential campaign in
Hhe. interest o fGovcrnor ?.'oodr?w
Wilson will. In a measure, depend on
whether or not a third party Is
formed by Colonel Roosevelt.
The commlttcemen. who depart to?
morrow to pay their respects to the
Democratic nominee at Sea Girt, N
J., discussed informally to-night the
outlook for Governor Wilson's candi?
dacy. It was suggested that as Wil?
son wus a progressive, Colonel ltoose
velt might within the next few weeks
announce the abandonment of Ms
plan for a progressive party.
""Whether Roosevelt forms a thlrrt
party or not." remakod Chairman
.Mack, "the Democratic ticket as it is
now constituted will appeal to hots
conservatives and progressives with?
in our ranks, and with the Republi?
can vote divided success for Wilson
and Marshall Is ussured."
The commltteemen say that while
the coming campaign will be discussed
wlt"h Governor Wilson to-morrow. It
Is extremely unlikely that any well
defined plan of action will be adopted
for some tlnx-. The subcommittee ap
pointed by Chairman Mack to confer
with the nominee on the naming of
tho new national chairman and the
desirability of forming TT campaign
committee ns a board of strategy, will
talk with Mr. Wilson to-morrow.
Announcement Is to be made later
when a full meeting of the national
committee will be called to take de
llnlti action. The full national corn.*
mlttee meeting to name a chairman
and outline plans of campaign and
establish headquarters probably will
bo held In Chicago or some other
central point.
The. national committee leaves here
to-morrow morning for Sea Girt, and
is due at the Governor Wilson sum?
mer home at I o'clock in the after?
noon. The general opinion here to?
night Is that William F. McCombs, of
Sew York, or A. Mitchell Palmer,
Congressman from Pennsylvania', win
be chosen head of the committee to
tonduct the Wilson campaign.
Practically all of the delegates havei
departed for their homes, and to?
night Baltimore hears only the echoes
of the national convention that ended
Its week's work early to-dav.

Seagirt. N. .1 July 3.?Upon the visit
here to-morrow of the national com?
mittee awaits the planning of the Dem?
ocratic campaign. Until the commit?
tee s arrival Governor Wilson will say
no word of the form which he expects
the line of battle to take. The com?
mittee will visit the nominee in a
body at his summer home. It is ex?
pected here at 2 p. M.. and after lunch
con under tlv? trees of the Governor's
lawn will meet In conference with
hfm. At this meeting the Governor
expects to discuss with the commlt?
teemen three things, namely.
The platform.
The chairmanship of the committee.
The campaign trip or trips.
Governor Wilson made it clear to?
night that his -'mind was open" on th?
chairmanship He had made no se?
lection, lie said, nor would he chOOSO
i the man until aft-^r the conference.
As to the campaign trips, the Gov?
ernor has strong personal leanings tc.
remain at home. He said to-night ho
wished that he would not have to stir
from Seagirt, He fears his councilors
to-morrow will advlne a long tour, and
If they can show him how It would
help he said he would go willingly.
Th'e Governor waved the olive branch
to-night In the direction of former
United States Senator James Smith.
Jr.. by expressing a wish that Mr.
Smith visit him here next Monday with
the Wilson men of New Jersey delega?
tion to Baltimore. Governor Wilson
Included James R. Nugent, Mr. Smith s
friend and lieutenant, also In the In?
vitation.
1 'ne hundred nnd sixty-odd telegrams
were received from men who said they
w ere Republicans and intended to vote
for Governor Wilson. One of them, a
Seattle man, said every Republican In
his ward save two would vote f"r Wil?
son.
It wns bearing midnight when tho
Governor retired. He was reminded
that to-morrow was a holiday.
'Theoretically, r know It." lie said.
