Von Kobo was the royal chamberlain and
the unsaory scandal in which he was a
principal ilsure has caused widespread
comment. His arrest in June last was the

Washington, llaioh 10 (Special.) Tho
burning Issue with tho Kansas contingent
Is, who shall be the distributer of pie? There
are a few postolllces yet to Mil, quite a
number ot thrm In fact. Whose recom
mendation shall be followed In tilling these
It Is ceitaln that ex-Senator Martin will
not surrender his place at the pic counter
until he Is crowded out. A new postmaster
geneinl Is coming lu In due time und the
combination with .Mr. Hlssell will not bo
ippllealile 111 the new change 01 matters.
Then time Is something else that is sug
gestive of trouble for the e-scn.itor. .Mi.
Wilson, who will soon draw pay as a mem
ber ot the cabinet. Is not of that piactiea
ble temperament that gets down to detail
walk it is well known now that he will
not take charge ot such small matteis as
picking out postmasters In tUtfermt pirts
ot the countiy. That Is too small a bus
iness lor mis gieat man. 1 lie iiuuii ol .ii.
Wilson will be occupied with matteis that
will keen him looking fin oft Into space
and not Into the countenances of the appli
cants tor Uigur pie Jouei, the Hist as
sistant postmastei geneial, will have
ch.uge of the details ot making postmas-
teis tie is tne man tne pie-numers win
have to tackle In tho near luture.
How does this leae .Mr. .Mai tin ' A little
history lu this connection may explain to
some extent. It was .Mr. Jones that bi ought
about the great Hump or senator .Martin
in Topeka. Mr. Jones Hied out of odlce
Mr. 'i nomas, who nan ueeu appointed on
the leeommendatlon of Senators Martin
and 1'efter. both of whom llo at Topeka.
Now a senator of any pirty Is, by the rules
of the department, een followed by the
present administration, allowed to say who
shall be postmaster In his town. Hut here
is a case wnere two senators irom tne
same town were over-i earned u .Mr.
Jones, who dumped both ot them, ousttd
tneir mm who nau ucen appoiutcu aim
who had enteied upon his duties And
then Mr. Jones picked out Andrew Jackson
Arnold for postmaster at Topeka and had
him appointed over the protest of Sen itor
Mai tin. Senator I'offor, It seemed, had no
Inform itlon about what was going on.
This Is not the only tlmo that Mr. Jones
took tho udvlce ot others about matteis
in Kansas. It teems that ho lias .1 friend
lu Topeka In the person of Henry Stiong
who suggested to lilni the appointment of
Mr. Arnold. Mr. Strong mid Mr Jones were
schoolmates and they nie fi lends, and the
advice of Mr. Stiong raused Mr. Jones to
get In his deadly woik against tho late sen
ator from Kansas, ot course the lndnrse
lntnt ot .Mr. Stionir from now on will be
of importance to tho would-be postmasters
under tho changed conditions of tho post
olllco department. Hut theio Is anothei In
teresting point It appears tint Puld
Overmver, of Topeka. and Mr, Strong are
friends politically nml personally ami tho
combination may be suggestive.
To 'ill this must be ndded tho fact tint
Mr. Jones not only turned .Mr. Martin down
in his own home In a postoillco matter, but
gave him trouble at other places which Mr
Martin lound out. There was a talk about
It In tho otllco of tho assistant postmaster
general. Mr. Martin objected and Mr, Jones
Indicated that ho did not care. Theie was
much moro of It, but it is only necessaiy to
slate this much to rover conditions about
to nrrhc. Mr Martin and Mr. Jones hao
not been In tho habit ot tijlng to do bus
iness together since, To this must bo add
ed tho fact that Mr. Jones Is from Illinois
and tint hn knew .Mr. Oveimyor long be
fore ho moved to Kansas; that they for
merly chased catllsh In the muddy creeks
of Illinois and Indiana, and hence, In the
near future, tho plo combination may be
chunged. as siiLjsested by theso facts,

TROUBLES OF ANJNVESTIGATOR
suinn i,f the Dlllli ullles I iiiuiiuleri il lu
Olitihniui Tinltiir.l by fpuhil
Wanhlugton, March 10. (Special.) Colonel
New toil, speilnl ngelit of the department of
Justice, detailed to make a report on ninny
mntters In Oklahoma and mainly upon tho
Justice Scott troubles, has ninny Interest
lug experiences to relate in connection with
his visit and olllclal work In that country.
He had 11 very Interesting time while In
Oklihoma and nn opportunity to get n
broad and comprehensive view uf human
nature, as well 11s many other things.
It Is a common thing for government
agents engaged 111 such work to llnd a
mass of c'utilllotlng evidence. Statements
from apparently good sources nnd on the
same matter traveling In opposite direc
tions are expected, but they 'come very
fust und In peculiar form In Oklahoma,
The colonel would take the statement uf
a certain man of standing in tho com
munity which would reetn to bo nil right.
Then he would discover the name of tho
same man on a paper submitted by the
other side In the light. Then, later, he
would be presented with another state
ment fiom the same party on' the snnc
point coviied before, but It would bu ma
terially d I It el en t All this change would
bo brought about In a very smalt time.
Sometimes the witness would explain that
he had burnished up his memory; that
he had taken cnie to look Into the exact
facts or something else had better fitted
him to make nn Improved statement. This
would sometimes be ventuied by way of
explaining his change of front.
There was much evident o nlso taken
where pirtles furnishing the sumo would
enjoin secrecy on th" part of tho agent.
There were very few who cared to come
out In .1 bold way and make a statement
on certain chaiges and do It with tho
llrmness required If there should be a
possibility of the statements reaching tho
public or the olllclal Interested. While this
was true of many who desired the dismis
sal of Judge Scott, It Is also true of many
others submitting statements In his favor.
Hven his friends, ns develoied In tho In
vestigation, did not like to have their
statements mndo known for fear It would
have nn Inlluence In some way undesira
ble. All this shows to an Intense degree
the bitterness of the light as It explains
that many an both sides of the muUei did
not care to Incur tho displeasure of tho
it Is understood that ilupllclt) was In
dulged lu by some to Hiieh an extent that
Colonel Newton Informed Justice Scott of
the unreliability of ceitaln men who not
onlv submitted statements favorable to
ncuic, nut to tne other side uiso. it ap
peared to the agent the light thing to do
In the face of such action.
