GEN. SPARKS' REPLY. The Statement to be Laid Bafore the President To-day, WHAT IIE WILL PROBABLY SAY. Ilia Policy In Accord With tho Views of tho Administration. Tho littmar-yparlo controversy Is Mill tho absorbing topic of convcrsa lion, nnd "Department nSldaU havo been discussing tho caso with great eagerness. Thcro Is more in tho mat ter than tho public havo any Idea of, and tho outcome Is likely to afford food for tho gossips until Congress meets, when It will lake a fresh start. General Sparks Is by no means a well man, and yesterday hu had to go home nt 1 o'clock, llu made another attempt nt work to day, but with no heller result aud at 13 o'clock ho went home. About hut naatll a dime reporter called ut the General Land Oillcc and had a few minutes talk with tho Com tnlssloner, who was looking auythlug but well. In answer lo tho reporter's question ho said; "Como hack about 4 o'clock nnd you can get alt I have to say on tho subject." Judging from opinions 0Kprecd by ofllclals whose relations with Lamar and Sparks are very close, the General's letter to tho President will bo u review of hls(Sparks) administration, showing that ho has had tho approvul of thu President and that ho Ins only carried out Iho policy or tho Admlnlstritlon as he understood It. Ho m ly alao seek to show where railroad Inllucnco has been biought tn hear on tho Secretary, and as a result the reversal ot some of his decisions. Ho will probably conclude his letter by saying th,at his resignation Is at the disposal of iho President, pro vldlng tho President Is satisfied that his rulings as Land Commissioner have been at variance with the law and tho policy of the Administration. General Sparks' position Is a peculiar one, hut hu has many supporters, among them ex Senator Van Wyck, who said to a World reporter vesterduv: "If Mr. Sparks Is dismissed, It looks to me like a return to the old Republican methods which have been so strongly condrnine-d In thu past, I havo not nnd Air, Lamar's letter carefully, hut his citing the precedents that havo been established in the Land OQlce for lhe last twenty-five years for Mr, Sparks' guidance, is to to say tho lent, inconsistent," It Is said by an Intlmato filcnd of General Sparks that thu Land Commis sioner did not feel uneasy about his position, but that he felt confident of making out a strong case, which tho President would consider a long tlmo before taking action. Secretary Lamar has taken deep In terest In this case, nud he feels that by remaining eilcnt bo long ho has permit ted himself to bo placed lu n false posi tion. He takes tbo ground that tho differences between him nud tho Com missioner have at last reached a point where ono or tho other will bo coav polled to retire, hut Insists that no thango of policy Is contemplated un duly faorlng tho railroad corpora tions.
