Says Major Scott's Reap
pointment, If Made, May
Fail in Senate.
Washington, Oct. 24.The con
ference between Senator Clapp,
Secretary Hitchcock, Indian
Commissioner Leupp and In
spector McLaughlin yesterday
over the White Earth timber sale
was merely preliminary Senator
Clapp says he expects to remain
here several days, and hopes to
have the matter disposed -of be
fore he leaves. He has not given
the appointment of Major Scott's
successor as agent at Leech Lake
any consideration, and grows
sarcastic in referring to that
"I suppose if the secretary of
the interior wants to appoint
Major Scott to that position, he
will do so," said the senator.
"Apparently things are done in
Minnesota without ^consulting
anybody in the state.* We re
serve to ourselves, however, tne
right to refuse to confirm the
nomination if it is made."
The order issued by the war
department, retiring Major
Scott, did not relieve him from
his duties as agentjat Leech Lake
and it is understood here that he
will remain in Minnesota until
his successor is appointed, if a
civilian is chosen, in order that
