Washinotox, Nov. 27. -Senator John Sherman 6aid today: -T am not please i with this talk in the newspipers to tha eilect that the president is directing that bonds shall be issued and tills a id that shall be done in the treasury depart ment. J think it toft b id that we have grown away from the old practice, whica niiide the secreta.-y of I he treasury more or less of au independent o:lic:al of tno government. "it w as, undoubtedly, the ii en io 1 of the fathers of the republic to make the 'keener of the national treasury the representative and agent of the people, and not subject to tha dictation of the executive It was not a clearly detiaed Cistiuetioa, but the spirit was tiiere. Cur ysem m this re spect was modeled after the ngli :i government, where toe crown has id authority whatever ever the national linances. "Control of the national cash b x be longs to the peoj le an 1 tj their immedi ate representatives in the house of com mons, and not the sovereign, ijur sec re tary is more the otlieer of congress than of the president. Co.nrress d.rects him what to do and requests him to report, not to the president t at to the congress. While the president must of course have more or less lnj"!ueuce with the secretary of the treasury, there devolves upon this latter ofiicnal a peculiar re.-j. ur.sib'.l ity which rests upon no other cal met odicer, and which can bo fuily met only by free dom from presidential dictation. If the present secretary of the treasury is as much dominated by the presi lent as th newspapers say he is, it is a reat mis take and a departure from the lest tra ditions of government." j uim; e1 l : x i isllEi' a r.E. liij iiurtiou Ajjaitist Nebraska -l v i m a in t M-rlglit i sl "VJ ii.i e 'e r.it: n e .it .

McCasey, whose record in the mismanagement of the state insane asylum is familiar to every citizen in Kansas, has resigned. lie placed his unqualified resignation in the hands of the state board of chari ties today and it was at once accepted, to take effect when his place cau be filled. Governor Lewelling, who has been in conference with the members of the board of charities on this matter for sev eral days, this morning asked Dr. McCa Bey for his resignation but. li:. McCasey refused to resign. Immediately after the governor's re quest was refused the members of the board of charities agreed that it was their duty to sustain the governor by de manding ..icCasey's immediate and un qualified resignation, ami they at once made that request. Dr. McCasey was called before the board and told to write out his resig nation, which he did, and signed it in tne presence of the board of charities ail tne members being present. Mrs Lease did not go to California but stayed to see the McCasey tight through. The board of charities then made its order accepting -..icCasey's resignation, to take effect when his place should be tilled. Immediately after the resignation of Dr. MeCasey was made known to the other ot3icers of the asylum Dr. Anna A. Kneiberg, the assistant superintendent, and Mrs. Emma D. Pack tendered their resignations, although they were not re quested. The board of charities ttien accepted their resignations to take effect when their places are liiled, but it is understood they will not be tided as soon as Dr. McC.'.sey's. As Boon as Dr. H. D. Kaslman, the former superintendent, heard of the resignation of Dr. McCasey, he went before the Upreme court and se cured an injunction against the b ard of charities to prevent ttieir appointing a superintendent to take Mct'asey's place until the case against McCasey, in which Dr. Eastman is plaintiff, is settled. It was the plan of thi board of chari ties to bring Dr. L F. Wentworth, who is now superintendent of the 'sawato mie asylum to Topeka to succeed Dr. McCasey, but the supreme court injunc tion mny change their plans. Treasurer Waite said this afternoon that it is possible that the board of char ities will meet this evening or tomorrow morning and make an order accepting Dr. McCasey's resignation at ouce and allow the assistant superintendent to as sume his duties until a superintendent can be appointed SUES FOI!
