It was said at the Interior department that the new officer would not supplant F. H. Newell, director of the reclamation service, whose late has been the subject of much specu lation ever since the lines were drawn between the Garfield and Balllnger administrations. No Changes Like1. It was explicitely stated that Gen eral Marshall's appointment did not indicate any change in the personnel of the field force of the reclamation service, Inasmuch as he would have no supervision over the operation of the service or over the designing of construction work. He would act, it was said, in an advisory capacity to the secretary of the Interior. The creation of the new position was in accord with the wishes of the president and was Ir. harmony with the plan of inspection by army engi neers of existing reclamation projects as provided for the appointment of a board of five engineers from the engi neer corps of the army to Inspect the reclamation works, reporting directly to the president Mr. Taft has the appointment of this board now under consideration.

Believed to Have Dacp Significance. BEVERLY, Mass. Secretary of the Interior Balllnger was summoned to the summer capltol for a conference on Tuesday. Officially, he and Taft are said to have discussed the admin istrative -features of the $20,000,000 reclamation bond IsBiie, but authori tative Information Indicates that the conference was of much deeper signi ficance. Whether or not Balllnger is to remain In the Taft cabinet was probably decided. It Is certain, however, that there will be no announcement on the subject until after the report of the congres sional Ballinger-Plnchot investigation committee is made public. - Colonel Roosevelt is probably the first pro Plnchot supporter with whom the pres ident has talked in regard to the con servation situation since the congres sional Inquiry closed. It Is, therefore, regarded as peculiarly significant that Immediately following the next Taft Roosevelt conference should come the announcement that Secretary Ballln ger was summoned to talk over affairs with the president Furthermore, the date comes within the 15-day period during which President Taft has here tofore said he wou'd transact no busi ness other than of the most pressing character.
