GOV. HALL REQUESTS THE RE

INER W. L. YOUNG.
Western Newprper Untio Nrwlg 5,rvte..
Shreveport.-The right of Gov. Hall
to summarily remove State itank Ex
aminer W. L. Young will be tested in
the courts. M.r. Young, whose resigna
tion was demanded by the governor
on the ground that his work has not
been satisfactory, declines to resign,
declaring that the charges of the gov
ernor are so vague that he cannot
rerply to them intelligently, aid fur
ther. that as his office is a coinstitu
tioi:al one, he can be removed only
upon the two-thirds vote of the Gen
eral Assembly. In this view Speaker
L. E. Thomas and others concur.
Accompanying the order of re
moval, a statement was made in the
executive department, partly as fol
"Mr. Young was appointed during a
former adminiseration, and was re
tained in ofTice, notwithstanding there
may have been strong political reasons
why he should be replaced. The em
ployees in the department were not
disturbed. The governor was not dis
posed to make changes unless the good
of the 'service seemed to him to re
quire. He had not sufficient informa
tion at the time to justify the conclu
sion that the work of the department
was not satisfactory. Hlowever, AMr.
Young then expressed, and has since
reiterated, his willingness and pur
pose to retire whenever the governor
should deem it desirable.
"For some months complaints of the
conduct of the department lhd be
come so persistent as to render the
situation embarrassing. Soon after
the defalcation in the receivership of
the Teutonia Bank and Trust Com
pany became public the governor had
one of more conferences with Mr.
"While the governor made no
charges against him, he detailed to
him some of the complaints against
him. It was difficult for the governor
to get definite and specific informa
tion as to the grounds for complaint.
Without reciting details, it may be
said that Mr. Young denied that there
was any just or reasonable foundation
for such complaints."
On March 6 Gov. Hall receifhed
from Mr. Young a letter in response to
his demand for the examiner's resig
nation. He reviewed the case at
length, said the charges of the gov
ernor were so vague that he could not
reply Intelligently to them: that he
would not hesitate to reorganize his
department if it could be shown where
any member had been guilty of mis
conduct and then concluded:

to call for my resignation, and it is

a smile what had become of the threat

the new tariff schedules.
"All men are witnesses that the
flooding of our markets with the prod

Europe has not occurred," he said.
"Nay, the total imports for the entire
period since the tariff came into ef

of the millions upon millions in value
of goods waiting to be unloaded upon

more cheaply was to bring disaster

"Instead, as editors and speakers
look over the cold, hard facts of our
foreign trade, their remarks about the
flooding of our markets must come to
their thoughts as those things one
would rather not have said.
"Meanwhile the current has run
strongly the other way, and particu
larly is this true in the shape of fully
finished materials. Our foreign trade
in this country continues to grow, be
side the normal fluctuations from
month to month in the total export
business. Those, if there were any,
who felt that the flooding had come

largest ever known, namely, $184,500.

shock when Imports for January fell
off more than 0)(1.o00.00. so as even
to be less by almost $9,000.000 than in

in the imports of manufactures under
the new tariff that competitive condi

"We expect that as the great or a
larger growth will take place in the
