as auditor of tho treasury has been
accepted. Sam Patterson of Arnpa

Formal announcement of Mr. Patter

Although Mr. Andrews filed his resig
nation with Secretary McAdoo during

unofficial sources within the last few
Sam Patterson had been nn appli

Senator Hitchcock nnd tho Nebraska
democratic members of tho house. It

probable therefore, that the patronage
doadlock between Senator Hitchcock
and Secretary Is not Invaded In
tho expected settlement of the nudl
torshlp. Mr. Andrews would mako no an
nouncement of his plans. It Is under
stood that for a few months, nt least,
ho will devote himself to rest and
