WASHINGTON, Nov. :'. Secretary Taft
refused to make any statement whatever
tonight concerning the negro troops that
have been ordered discharged at Fort Reno.
"I can't discuss th caw until tomorrow,"
Secretary" Tnft replied to all questions.
Ife refused to say whether he had been In
communication with the president.
Immediately after, hla arrival In Wash
ington this afternoon Secretary" Taft went
to the War department and summoned Gen

dier General Barry, cjiief of staff, and Gen
eral Oliver, assistant, secretary of war, for
a conference. William Loch, Jr., socrctiry
to the president, was also summoned to the
War department before the end of the con
ference, which lasted more than an hour.

FORT RENO. Okl... Nov. 20. Tit order
from Washington to hold In abeyance the
order discharging the negro troops with
out honor did not come as a complete sur
prise at Fort Reno. . Military men who
have watched the extent of the public feel
ing against the discharge orders have be
lieved that the War department would de
lay tho carrying out of the project until a
further Investigation was made. It wus
believed hero that Secretary Taft was re
sponsible for tha abeyance order. During
his recent trlp"of inspection of the mili
tary posts In the south it is understood
that General W. S. McCaskey, the bend of
the Department of Texas, made the secre

tory of the entire affair at Brownvllle.
Before the order waa received yesterday
from Washington twenty-four members of
Company B had already been discharged
ithout honor. The weather was cold and
disagreeable. , As the soldiers were p lid off
and dismissed they were orderly and well
behaved. Nono displayed any ugly feeling.
The officers were mute. The only comment
was one in keeping with that of the sol

ALBANY", N. Y., Nov. &. The thirty
eighth annual convention of the Protestant
Episcopal diocese of Albany convened in
All SaJnt-,' cathedral in this city "today.
The feature of principal public Interest was
tho address of Right Rev. William Cros
well Doanc, who from the foundation of
the diocese has been Its bishop. His widely
known interest on the subject of marajage
and divorco was again displayed in his
earnest references to that subject, in the
course of which, after alluding with ap
proval to the meeting ut Philadelphia of
the congress on uniform divorce laws, at
which he was present, he said in part:

WASHINGTON. Nov. 2a. ISpeelal Tele
gram.) Secretary or the Interior Hitchcock
will devote the remainder of his time as a
cublnet ' official to the prosecution of tho
case which he has worked up against
cattlemen of Nebraska, charged with the
Illegal fenrlng of tho public domain.
Colonel John Mosby procured the greatest
amount of evidence against the callle lar
ons whili acting ns special agent of the
Interior department several years npo. Re
cently a number of other cases in Nebraska
of alleged Illegal fencing huive been Invest
igated, and these are to be prosecuted before
Secretary Hitchcock leaves the position of
secretary of the Interior. Further than this
he has prepared anil will print In his re
port to congress as an appendix a full list
of the names of cattlemen who are charged
with Illegally occupying the public domain,
with a description of the lands which they
are alleged to have lllegaly fenced, and, In
fact, all the details upon which the Depart
ment of Justice, through the evidence fur
nished by the Interior department, has en
tered upon legal proceedings against the
Way to Accent Pollard Money.
And still the Pollard "hack pay" case
worms Us way along through tha inter
stices of red tape. There seems, however,
to be light ahead and a way found to
accept the check of the congressman from
the First Nebraska district for the money
sent him by Sergeant-at-Arms Casson of
the house of representatives to cover the
interregnum between March 4, 1905, and
July 18, 1U05, when Mr. Pollard was elected
to succeed Senator Burkett. According to
one of the auditors connected with the
government, an unexpended balance under
an annual appropriation is covered back to
tho "surplus fund" three years from the
date of its availability. For instance, an
appropriation beginning July 1, !!;, Is
for the fiscal year V.xf!, and any expense
Incurred between July I, !HJ6, and June
i, 190", must be paid out. of the particu
lar appropriation. If it is a salary ques
tion, as It; tho Pollard case, according to
the auditor In question, and no one is en
titled to the money within that time, then
the amount will bo covered back to the
surplus fund two years after the close ot
the fiscal year for which the appropriation
waa miuie. ,
In the opinion of the auditor, if Sergeant-ut-Arms
Casson In the Pollard case had not
drawn a chtck to Mr. Pollard the amount
of money accruing froe. March i 1905, to
July IS. .1905. would have gone back to the
surplus . fund two year after the close
of the fiscal year for which tho. appropri
ation was made.
As the auditor . for the state and other
departments has authority under the law
of reopening any settlement that miy have
been previously made after the expiration
of one year und revise the account on the
basis of new and material evidence It ia
thought that Mr. Pollard's check will not
remain long In the hands of Sergeant-at-Arms
Cabson. It is now suggested that
Mr. Pollard redraw his check payable to
the- treasurer of the United State, send It
through Colonel Casson s office with the
request that the amount be covered to the
appropriations from which it was origi
nally obtained and the incident of Pollard
"back pay" will bo closed. One thing Is
sure; the government will get tho money
and it may leael to an opinion which will
solve the vexed question of who Is en
titled to the money as In the Pollard case.
