Hint That Huynr.l Mar Itrtlre.
New Yoke, June '25. The .Siirt's Wash
ington special from an occasional cor
respondent says: "All Is uot harmony in
the Cabinet, and tho President Is
troubled. He is not at one with the
Secretary of Stale, and the differences
that have arisen will not be mitigated by
time or obliterated In the progress of the
administration. Uayard's course In re
gard to appointments and the gcueral
spirit in which he has conducted the de
partment, have been a great disappoint
ment to the fresbleut, aud to some other
members of the Cabinet. Hayard, they
sav, has proved capricious and uncer
tain; his course has not been guided
by any Used olicy or logical purpose,
and he Is declared to be the one dissen
tient and permanently Inharmoulous cle
ment in the adminisi ration. The objec
tions to Rayard are cumulative, and no
degree of patience, leniency or Ingenious
explanation can conceal either the pres
ent drift or ultimate result. That result
Is that IJavard wld presently leave the
Cabiuet. The Tresldeut Is kindly dls-po-ed
and by nature a very tolerant man,
but In respect to what he regards a un
itistiilablc obstacles he knows no aincti-
! ities whatever."
Washington-, D. C. June 1o. In re

probable retirement from the Cabinet,
