Tiatt An drew today tendered his resignation to the president as assistant secre tary of the treasury. In a spirited let ter to the president. Andrew writes of conditions in the treasury department, which are allege! to be due to the atti tude of Secretary MacVeagh toward many of his subordinates. Tne letter charges subordinates have "been ham pered and discouraged at every turn by MacVeagh's Idiosyncrasies and his incapacity for decision." It contains a scathing arraignment of MacVeagh's administration of "government affairs" and created a profound sensation in official circles. Ill'MISKK AT 5TAnnil.l Andrew tells the president thai for a lone time much tieasury business has been at a standstill because ui do lays for which the secretary alone Is responsible, but for which the peoples outside harshly crlUciatd-hii sub if dl- nate8. 7n(, secretary himself waj even more harsh whenever he discovered his subordinates had ventured to act upon matters of minor importance without waiting for bis decision, Au- " . drew says.

Decisions of MacVeagh. he 'declares, upon urgent questions, have been held up for months. Andrew also charges MacVeagh with being distrust ful mid suspicious of many of th-? higher treasury officials, and for months at a time persistently "refused even to speak to those officials of hia department with whom he should na turally have been in constant personal communication." I.OMl l-KOC II S I l TIO. In this connection he mentions the names of Mr. Hilles, formerly in the treasury department, but now sec rftary to the president; Treasurer McClung, Director of the Bureau of 1'rlnting Ralph, and says there are others besides himself. Andrew refers to MacVeagh's "as tounding capacity for procrastination," and cites instances in which he says matters submitted to the secretary for decision were held up so long they settled themselves before a decision was nnade.
