Como, Italy, June 15'. "While every
day turns up some new feature adding
interest to the Lake Como mystery, it
is evident that the police are still In
doubt as to the identity of the person
or persons -who, after beating- Mrs. Scott i

Munson refused to explain his with
drawal. Raps the Republicans.
Permanent chairman Harman, on
taking the chair said:
"The hour for action has arrived
such an hour and such a condition as
seldom presents itself to a minority
party In Pennsylvania, and yet such a
condition as this is the logical result
of Republican misrule. From Pittsburg,
where seemingly only a 'stone can say

tented; from Harrlsburg, so lately the
scene of shameless raid, with two poor
souls in jail to Washington, where in
creased travel money and a white
house on wheels seems Inevitable
where the Republican party needs Dem-
ocratic support, we have seen this rot-
ten system in full flower.
"What the state wants is not a
mourning bench for criminal office
holders. What we need, and what we
demand, is honest men in public -office,
not rogues, we have to put in jail."

State Insurance Commis
sioner Berates the Gover
nor for His Interference.
A SHORT REPLY
Austin, Tex., June 15. El Paso has
created a lovely little stir at Austin.
Governor Campbell is trying to get
his insurance commissioner to nslgn
and the insurance commissioner is posi
tive that he is not going u resign and
both are positive that he can't be re
moved. The governor admits that he cannot
remove Mr. Hawkins nor can he dis
turb him in any way, but does say that
he Is under the impression that the
term of the commissioner expires on
August 21 of this year, which is a sur
prise as it was thought that the com
missioner held under his present ten
ure to the end of the administration.
The governor's impression is based on
the fact that the act creating the office
of commissioner of agriculture, insur
ance, statistics and history became et-
fectlve on August 21, 1S76, and there
fore the terms were for two years com
mencing on that date. This may bring
some interesting developments on that
The original act of- 1S7C has been
changed several times since then, the
department of agriculture now being
separate, as are the historical and li
brary branches. The banking act is
administered from the insurance office,
which is a recent law. Whether or not
these changes have any cffet on the
beginning and termination of a term
of commissioner is a matter for law
yers to pass upon.
The letter of the governor calling
for the resignation read as follows:
"Your resignation as commissioner
of Insurance and banking, to take ef
fect Immediately, is respectfully re
quested." The letter was written after the gov
ernor had urged that Mr. Hawkins
should resign voluntarily. Mr. Hawkins
declined to do th's and then the for
mal letter asking for the resignation
Mr. Hawkins in his answer declares
that both the governor and attorney
general Lightfoot are wrong in their
legal conception of the fire rating
board law Many lawyers here are
agreeing that commissioner Hawkins is
legally correct in hi position, In fact,
very few are heard to express any oth
Hawkins Explains Poiition.
Mr. Hawkins letter follows:
"Your demand for my resignation
grows out of my refusal, as commission
er, to be bound by the terms of a reso
lution which was adopted by the state
fire rating board on June 10 pursuant
to the advice of the attornev general

by the governor, the attorney general
and the state fire rating board, re
spectively, to"! based upon a misunder
standing bv the governor and by the
attorney general of the scope and effect
of the state fire rating board law which
was passed by the 31st leorlslature.
"I hate not questioned the motive j
j of any of said officers, but freely con
j cede that thev are all trying to protect
the public asainst what they consider
exorbitant insurance rates a very
worfhy purpose: but I contend that
they a'-'uo-sv all acting un'ler a mis
conception of the law and of the pow
ers and authority of the governor, and
that the manner of procedure to attain
the end in view should be precribpd

"Heretofore in various states, public
officials have been forced out of of
