Lansiw, Mich., Dec. 23. Pnnirl Soper,
who tendered bis resignation as secretai-y
of state to the governor a few days ago
when charges of malfeasance were pre
ferred against him, yesterday addressed a
letter to Governor Wiruiiia in which ha
states that h's resignation was tendered
upon the advice of others and without ma
ture deliltenUion on his part and that hav
ing received no notice of the acceptance of
his resignation he now wishes to with
draw it and submit himself to a thorough
investigation of the charges against him.
Soper says he did not intent ionally commit
any wrong in the discharge of his duties
and protests that the governor is without
authority to receive or accept his resigna
tion. The governor was seen and said that
the resignation was accepted on the lttth
and that he would appoint Sorter's succes
sor as soon as possible.
