of the Treasury Franklin MaeVeash. ,
In a statement given out here 10-day,
?leclarel that the resignation of A.
l'latt Andrew, Assistant Secretory of
the Treasury, was not bunmlttcd un?
til It had repeatedly been requested
by both Mr. MncVoaKh and President
Ta?t. The Secretary said that Mr.
Andrew pleaded to be retained In tho
service and brought every possible .
lntluence to bear to hav,_. the req lest
for his resignation withdrawn.

tlepartmor.t. and prepared a lengthy
statement of his *lde of the contro- j
vcrsy, which precipitated Mr. Andrew's;
;? ? j? r ef resignation.
Tula li in Proper Ltgat.
The statement of the Sucre Very
i.nys: "I regret that It seemed neces*
snry to refer to the letter published
by Mr. A. Platt Andrew and addressed
to the President and to mo The vlru- t
lence of the attack has probably lim?
ited Its effect; but apart from the at
lark upon me he strangely mlsrep- ,
resents n number *hf the c hief men of I
the Treasury Department to wnom

success of the department work, and ?
oim t'? deny that anything has been i
accomplished either by them or by!
anybody else I am obliged, therefore.)
i? restore Mr Andrew's resignation j
to Its proper light.
'?Mr itndreW k*vs h? resigned he-1
. of conditions in tne Treasury,
Department, of which !-..? disapproves. I
A comparison of this statement With
the factr is probably the simplest way'
to test the animus and the veracity
of his letter. He did not resign vol?
untarily, but wan asked to resign?
Und asked repeatedly?and he used,
every effort and Influence possible to
get the request for his resignation
withdrawn and pleaded to be allowed
tri continue In his place
'And It was when he had failed to .
have th" request for his resignation
withdrawn, and because of this, that |
he made his attack, r.nd chose to give ;
ibe Impression that his resignation]
was a matter of his own choice, and ;
determined upon for public reasons
"The details as to his resignation
are as follows:
"On .Tune when Mr. Andrew re- i
turned from Chicago. I formally asked
tn a note for his resignation He called |
on m? at once to tirce me to change
rhy mind and allow him to stay. At j
hi* wish 1 explained at length my
r-ssons and listened to all his argu?
ments and wishes j felt, however,
oldlged to tell him the request for his

7 supposed Mr Andrew would send
his resignation promptly, and. as a
matter of course, as i had never
known a case wh-re such a request
had not been promptly complied with.

"1 waited, however, without reply
until June 2R. I then wrote and re?

that day either his resignation or his
refusal to resign To this he did not
reply at all. And therefore, on July

request and communicating n copy of
a letter addressed to nie hy the Presi?

The wreck was the worst tn ths
history of tho road. Its cause, ac?
cording to Engineer Schroeder. of the
express, was his failure to see s'gnals
against his train. The morning was
foggy, and he said he could not malt?
them out. The wrecked train stood on
the main tr.-k blocked by a crippled
freight trim. There was no flag out.
according to Kngineer Schroeder. The
signals Eng'neer Schroeder declared
it was too foggy to see wero Just
around a curve.
The flying express plunged past
them and crashed Into the rear of No.
ft. br'nglng death to more than two
score of Its passengers.
Schroeder had taken No. u at Hl
mlra fifteen minutes b?tore. It was
a few minutes late. The stretch of
track from Elmlra to Corning is fitted
for fast running, and he was sending
his train along at sixty-five miles an
hour. No 9 was supposed to he half
an hour ahead of him. He had no
warning until he made out the outline?
of the rear coach of No. 3 through tho
fog. Then he threw on the reverao
