In police circles that Scott was the

tion has been similar. Although I have
supposedly been the representatve of the
secretary in his dealings with nineteen dif
ferent bureaus and divisions of the treas
ury, I have not been allowed In the ag
gregate a total of more than one hour's
conversation with him, Including private
interviews and conferences in the pres
ence of others, during the entire last year.
Meanwhile I have sent him hundreds of
letters and memoranda, asking a decis
ion in regard to matters urgently pending.
On very rare occasions I have received
a reply within a short time; In a few
cases the reply has come only after the
lapse of & month; in many cases only
after a lapse of several months, (when
not infrequently the matters had already
settled themselves); but in the majority
of cases I have received no reply at all.
Yet -like the other officials mentioned,
who have refused any opportunity for
personal conferences, I have been
promptly criticised for any decision made
or action taken.
Department 1. Demoralised.
"The conduct of business tn A depart
ment under such conditions Is, of courBe,
Impossible. The energetic young men
whom Mr. MacVeagh was wise enough
to select as heads of various divisions
have been hampered and discouraged at
every turn by his idiosyncrasies, his as
tounding capacity for procrastination,
his Incapacity for decision and Jie pecu
liar moods of suspicion and aversion to
which he is constantly subject" .
"There has never been a time since
I have been in the treasury when he
has not labored under the delusion
that some of those who were working
loyally and conscientiously for him
were in a cabal conspiring against him.
This has led him to treat some of his
most efficient aides with harsh in
gratitude and with a lack of consider
ation that was little short of brutal.

"My experience in these matters Is
only the familiar experience of the
majority of treasury officials. Mr.
McClung, the treasurer of the United
States in April of the present year,
found the delays, Indecision, diBtrust and
complaints of Mr. MacVeagh so intoler-
able that he brought the matter to Mr.
Hllles atention in the hope that you
might offer' some method of relief. Mr.
Ralph, the director of the bureau of
entravtng and printing, and Mr. Mur

have on several occasions with difficulty
been dissuaded from an Intention to

than their lamentably unsatlfactory
