WASHINGTON, April 24. Attorney
General Knox today told Postmas
ter General Payne that unless
there Is something to show whether
I ho document Mrs, Tyner took
from her husband's safe are government
property or private papers no case would
lie. Mr. Payne replied by stating the clr
cumstances attending the taking of the
papera and the fact that most of the papers
filed In such a manner are of a confidential
nature and therefore not on record. There
will be a conference tomorrow between Mr.
Payne and Mr. Knox.
The position taken by the Postofflce de
partment now will be that it has done all
possible to establish the facts In the case;
that the Impropriety of the act la of equal
Importance to the nature of what waa taken
and that any further steps rest with the
Department of Justice. It Is known by the
postmaster general that the safe from
which' all the papers were taken has con
tained valuable official papers at various
times and that Mr. Tyner has so stated.
It Is not known, however, whother anv
such papers were In It at the time.
Ross Perry, counsel for the Tyners, called
- on the postmaster general today subse
quent to his interview with Attorney Gen-
. eral Knox and told him thev Tyners would
be glad to have the postmaster general or
any representative of his department look
over the papers at their residence. Mr.
Payne talked with Mr. Perry at some length
and pointed out to him that the Tyners
were given an opportunity immediately
after the papers were taken to open them
In the presence of the officers of the de
partment and bad refused. Mr. Payne was
asked subsequently It he declined Mr.
Perry'a proposition, but said he could not
discuss that phase of the question. It may
be atated as the department's attltudo,
however, that It will not give muu weight
to any papers returned and that it la un
likely any further serious effort will be
made to recover the documents as there Is
no way of showing whether any papers re
turned were the ones actually taken. Post
master General Payne said this evening:
If there was any motive to take the pa
pers or any Intention of doing away with
them there has been ample time to do it.
Whether they were private or not, the im
propriety of the act Is apparent to say the
least. I regard It as quite Improper to
take. from a safe In a government office
the private papers of General Tyner or
Mrs. Tyner or of anybody else In the man
ner that those papers were taken aa to
take any other papers. The Impropriety of
the act Itself Is sufficient to remove any
officer of the government.
Barrett Demand Trial.
Harrison J. Barrett, formerly law officer
of the Postofflce. department, today sub
mitted a letter to the postmaster general
regarding his statement that charges
against Mr. Barrett are under Investiga
tion. Mr. Barrett says this Is the first
official Information he has had pf any
charges against his conduct and urges an
early, searching Investigation of all his
act. Mr. Barrett then draws attention to
a letter he wrote on March 15, making a
similar demand, and an alleged denial by
Mr. Bristow that any charges had been
laid against him. ,

Funston had been guilty of cruelty to

charges, said that If a court of Inquiry
found that he Issued orders which would
justify the giving of "no quarter" to the
Filipinos, hs would resign from the army.
The letter to the general says:
The matter has already been made the
subject of official investigation on three
separate occasions. In one of these which
occupied sixteen days, an officer authorized
to administer oaths to witnesses and exer
cistnsr his authority wherever necessary ex
amined over witnesses. Neither in that
nor In any other investigation waa there
anv testimony showlns or tending to show
that orders directing the killing of pris
oners of war had been given, by you at any
time. On the contrary, the evidence leaves
no reason tor doubt that tne marge was
without foundation. The secretary Is there
fore of opinion that the public Interests will
not be served by a lurther prosecution of
the Inquiry and directs that you De so au
Dlseass Island Catholics.
Secretary Root and Rev. Edward J. Vatt
mann, chaplain of the Twenty-ninth In
fnntry, had an important conference today
concerning affairs in the Philippines.
Whllo both parties to the conference
were reticent as to details, It Is known that
It related to the friar question and to the
attitude of the Catholic church toward the
"Americanizing" of the islands.
More than a year ago, with the knowl
edge and consent of this government. Chap
lain Vattmann was directed by the author
itles of the Catholic church in the United
States to make a thorough Investigation of
church questions In the Philippines and to
report the result of his findings to the
Catholic hierarchy. This report was sub
mitted to the archbishops at their annual
meeting yesterday, but was not made public
and may not be tor some time.
It Is known, however, that It covers ex
haustlvely all phases of Catholic church
questions In the Philippines, Including the
friar questions and the result of what is
popularly known as the "Agllpay move
ment." Agllpay Is an Insurgent priest who
practically renounces the authority of Rome
and has organized what he terms the "Phil
ippine Catholic church." Mr. Vattmann re
ports that while he doea not incite open
rebellion, Agllpay and his followers are not
only opposing the authority of the Roman
church in the Islands, but also the estab
Ushment of American rule.
A wide divergence of opinion developed
In the discussion by the archbishops. By
aome It waa urged that the Agllpay move
ment and all other controverted church
questions could be met best by placing
Catholic seminaries In the Philippines
under the control of American priests so
that the native students would be Inspired
by the highest ideals of Americanism. By
others it waa maintained that It would bo
wiser to bring, bright, capable and zealous
native students to the United States, place
them In American aemlnarlea and then re
turn them to the Philippines to direct the
church education of other natives. No
conclusion was reached. Executive action
concerning the matter will originate, neces
sarily, at Rome. ,

Hide Independence Docnment.
The Declaration of Independence is to be
seen no more by the public. An order has
ben issued that henceforth it shall be kept
behind lock and key In a fire-proof safe.
The declaration will never be exhibited
again at any of the great international
fairs. Thia decision was reached today aa
the result of an examination of the docu
ment by a committee of tho American
Academy of Sciences, now In session in
this city, who acted at the Instance of
Secretary Hay, whose attention had been
called to the sad state of the famoua doc
ument by Andrew Allen, librarian of the
State department. Most of the text of the
declaration is still legible, but only one or
two of the signatures can be made out.
There Is only a trace of the autograph of
John Hancock, the first to sign. The com
mittee, with the aid of powerful micro
scopes, made an examination of the docu
ment. It waa found that the Ink was not
of the first quality. The fact that the en
grosser used a sharp pen and bore steadily
on It accounted In a measure for the bet
ter preservation of the text as compared
with the signatures.
The great damage sustained, however.
waa in 1820, when a copy was taken by the
crude letter press process. This was done
in crder to secure a facsimile for the sur
vlvlng signers (among them Thomas Jef
ferson) and their families The committee
recommended that the declaration be shut
In an air and light-tight case and kept
from exhibition.
Today the document waa photographed
and then locked up. The committee has
recommended that at certain long Intervals
of time It be taken from Its case and re
photographed, the purpose being to mess
ure as nearly aa can be done the result
of the protective steps.

Two Seaalnaa of National Mnalclpal
l.eaane Are Held at Mlchlaran
ANN ARBOR, Mich., April I. The dele
gates to the annual convention of the Na
tional Municipal league rame over from De
troit to hold two sessions at the University
of Michigan. At tha forenoon session Frank
H. Scott, vice president of the Municipal
Voters' leaeua nf rhieaan. delivered an ad
dress on the municipal situation In Chicago.
The municipal situation In Detroit was the
subject of a paper by Sherman D. Callender,
attorney for the Detroit Municipal league.
Mr. Callender said In part:
Our cltlsens are deeply Interested In
municipal problems. This Increasing Inter
est in locai affairs has led to tne organisa
tion of the Detroit Municipal league. It
has been organized on a broad, common
sense platform and It efforts thua far have
been In substttntlsl accord with the Ideas
of the National Municipal league.
Lers than two years ago the Detroit or
ganization adopted a platform consisting
of the following specific objects for which
It was pledged:
First An election law which shall enable
the voters of all political parties or po
litical organisations to mike nominations
by a direct vote, with a provision as to
secrecy and other safeguards as efficient
as those now provided in the Australian
ballot system.
Second Buch constitutional amendments
and legislative enactments as will give the
elty permanent control of Its Internal af
fairs. Third Such amendment of the election
law applicable to Detroit as shall provide
for the election of all city officials at the
tegular biennial April election required by
the constitution, thua separating city elec
tions from state and national elections, and
affording opportunity for settling municipal
affairs and Issues on their merits.
Fourth Such amendment of the city
charter as shall provide civil service rules,
with efficient means for tha enforcement of
such rules.
Recent results are encouraging. It has
been our purpose to arouse the cnndld, hon
est, fair-minded citizen to an active realiza
tion that good municipal government Is to
be obtained only as a result of patient, In
telligent and persistent effort by the masses
or the people.
F. J. Symes, president of the Merchants'
association of San Francisco, was on the
program to speak on tho California munici
pal situation. Mr. Bymmes was unable to
attend, but sent his paper to the secretary
and it vas read.
W. A. Friable, city editor of the Minne
apolis Journal, reviewed the recent munici
pal scandal of that city, which has resulted
so far in forty-nine Indictments by the
grand jury and Ave convictions.
The visitors were entertained at lunch
by President Angell. Tonight the conven
tion will close with a banquet In Detroit.
