all the names of the officers and men
who wvere in the Confederate service

does not show the complete military
histories of those whose names it

PRESIDENT GOT WRATHY
Because His Wife's Handwriting Was
Criticized--Roasted Postoffice and Or
Tacoma, May 25.--There was a
stormy scene in the president's pri
vate car just after the party left
Portland, Ore., on the Western tour.
The day before, it seems, a paper
printed a scare-head article declaring
that Seattle was temporarily the seat
of the national governimint because
the president's mail was arriving at
the local office.
It went on to show how letters
from Mrs. Roosevelt were addressed
and commented on the handwriting
intimating that she was careless in
asmuch as the final "e" in her hus
band's name was but omitted. The
addresses on other letters were also
The article was shown the presi
dent. He promptly called Secretary
Loeb to him and denouced the offi
cers of the Seattle postoflice who
had made his correspondence a mat
ter of public comment and said he
would at once order the post master
general to make a rigid examination
in order I > ascertain what officer was
responsible for a gross breach of
trust. It is reported the president is
very much excited over the criticism
of his wife's chirography.

most sensational development of the
postoffice investigation up to thiN
time occurred today, when August
W. Mlahen, the general supt-rinton

arrested on a warrant issntod ij)on
the information of postolice inspe
tors charging him with having re
ceived "rake offs" from contracts
made with the local firm of Goff
Brothers for a patent postal box
fastener. The warrant specifically
charges him with receiving $18,981.78
since August 8, 1900. It is alleged,
however, at the department that this
amount does not represent all that
AMachen obtained in connection with
these contracts, it being charged that
he profited by them for several yeara
prior to the date of the first contract
mentioned in the warrant. Other
arrests are to follow.
Immediately after Mr. Macheun
was taken inio custody the Postmas.

that the evidence against Machie
