WILL INVESTIGATE MOORE
Irregularities Regarding- g0ll Cnltore
Scandal Referred to Depart,
ascot of Justice.
OYSTER BAY, L. I., July 8,-An Investi
gation of the case of. Dr. George T. Moore,
physiologist and analogist of the Depart
ment of Agriculture, who resigned yester
day. Is to be made by the Department of
Justice whether a prosecution I .warranted
by the fact.
This was made clear tonight In corre
spondence between the president and Sec
retary Wilson, the publication of which
wa authorised by the president. It ap
pears from this and the accompanying
paper that the first suggestion toward
looking into the bureau In which Dr. Moore
wa employed came In a letter to President
Roosevelt from T. D. Harman. manager
of the National Btockman and Farmer
under the date of July 18 Inst.
Secretary Wilson sent to the president a
copy of Moore statement made to the
secretary. In defenae of Ms alleged con
nection with the nltro-culture concern.
That statement Indicate that Moore' su
perior's In thejDepartment of Agriculture
were cognisant for a long time of hla de
sire to leave the department to Identify
himself with the nltro-culture company,
unless he could secure a promotion, but
In It Moor expressly say that hi su
perior did not know hla wife was a stock
holder in the company or that a consider
able block of the stock had been reserved
for him. For some reason, which Is not
explained, Moore neglected to Inform his
superiors on that very material point.
Dr. Moore's statement ha been pub
lished. It Is regarded as not unlikely that
out of the Inquiry which Is being made
into Dr. Moore's connection with the nltro
culture company, may grow aome sensa
tional disclosures. The letter of Mr. Har
man to tha president contains Intimation
of a state of affairs that Is not explained
by statements to Secretary Wilson. The
Whole matter, by direction of the president,
will be probed to the botttom and If the
facts should warrant, prompt action will
be taken by the Department of Justice.

names from the box. Commissioner Rich
ards was the first to put the so-called
"lottery" scheme of determining who wa
entitled to first choice of lands Into prac
tice, and realising that criticism would fol
low unless he was surrounded by men of
Irreproachable character, he hit upon the
scheme of a committee which la now car
ried out in the opening of the Unitah res
ervation by the choice of John Dern and
Secretary Ryan stated that thl commit

alfalfa and clover, It Is charged, have been

paternalism of the rankest kind ha been
shown to these representatives.

ingly says that the Virginia neighbor of
Hull have been "doped."

Kabe on Its Way to
TOKIO, July .-: p. m Secretary
Taft and party left for Kyoto by special
train this evening amid a most enthusiastic
reception from all the distinguished parties
connected wtlh the court and the civil,
military and naval departments, also from
the banker and other mercantile repre
sentatives. In fact, all the typical repre
sentatives of the city who had received the
party upon Its arrival, again assembled
at the Shambashl railway station. The La
dies' Relief association, which presented
flowers to Miss Roosevelt, was especially
well represented. Among the delegates of
the association was Madam Togo, the wife
of the great admiral, whose quiet, unosten
tatious manner attracts attention as re
flecting the prominent characteristics of
her distinguished husband. Hearty cheers
and banxals were Joined In by usually un
demonstrative men of rank and position
a the train pulled out of the station.
Long before the hour of departure the
street near the station were lined with
delegates from different sections of the
city, holding high lanterns bearing their
respective marks. It is seldom that any
foreign party has received so brilliant and
hearty a sendoff as that accompanying
Secretary Taft, and another visit from it Is
anticipated with great delight. The feeling
that more could not be done to entertain
the party, owing to the shortness of it
tay, is universal.
Secretary Taft and party will spend a
night at Kyoto, where the steamer will be
taken for Kobe.
A dispatch from Nagora says that the
Taft party received hearty ovations at all
the principal railroad stations. The party
stopped at Nagoya, which was reached at
T o'clock this morning. The station wa
already full of distinguished personage
headed by the governor, the commander-in-chief
of the reknowned Golden Castle
division, the mayor and others. The train
remained fifteen minutes, during which
hearty greetings were exchanged and much
cordiality manifested between the member
of the party and those who welcomed them.
Secretary Taft and Mis Alice Roosevelt
came out of their car and expressed their
warm appreciation of the kind -welcome.
It Is not too much to say that cheers of
welcome echoed from station to station,
until Kyoto was reached shortly before
NAGASAKI, July 29,-Secretary Taft and
party arrived at Kyoto at 11:18 o'clock. The
governor, mayor and other officials, repre
sentative of the women' war societies,
1,500 students and a great crowd of people
greeted the visitors. A band played the
American anthem as the train was enter
ing the station. Miss Alice Roosevelt was
presented with many flowers. The party
visited the old Imperial palace, the tem
ples and museums, and this evening wit
nessed a cherry ' dance. They will proceed
to Kobe tomorrrow.
DECREASE IN THE DEFICIT
Treasury Department Report Show
It Is 3,000,000 Less Than
WASHINGTON, July 29.-The monthly
Statement Of the arovernment reeelnts unit
expenditure which will be Issued by the
ireasury department on August 1 will show
the receipt for Julv. 1908. to have twen u.
proximately $49,180,000 and the expenditures
aouui w.sw,uw, leaving a deficit for the
month of $l,68O,0O0. The deficit last July
wa tn.300,000. I j
There were no extraordinary receipt or
expenditure in July, 1904. and none will
occur In the figure for the present month.
This decrease of about 23,600,000 in the de
ficit for this month aa compared with that
for July. 1904. Is accounted for by the ma
terial Increase in the receipts, particularly
from custom and a slight decrease in ex
penditures. The recelnta from nuinmi
alone will exceed those for July last year
oy aoout 227,000,000. Those from Internal
revenue sources will probably exceed those
of a year ago by about 2600,000. The re
ceipts mis month will Include a payment
of about $3,000,000 from the Bouthrn Purine
Railroad company on account of its thlr-
lecmn semi-annual note due the govern
ment on August 1. There was a similar
payment from this company last July. The
treasury officials regard the showing this
month with satisfaction and rolnt to tha
22,000,000 increase in customs receipt aa an
indication of a large increase in business
dtirlng the remainder of the year.
