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. Mentions Other Officers. "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 ray, the comptroller of the currency, have on several occasions with difficulty been dissuaded from an Intention to resign, due to no other reason other than their lamentably unsatlfactory relations with Mr. Macvengh. I am told the same is true of Mr. Cabell, the commissioner of internal revenue. "For the foregoing reasons, whereby the transaction, of all business pertain ing to my office has become practically lnipoaslM. I beg with Infinite , rcrt te place, .my . resi&naticii as assistant relations with Mr. McVeagh. I am la his letter to Secretary MacVeagh the assistant secretary plainly tells his chief his reasons for resigning. He says In part: "Your disposition, methods and point of view are such as to render Impossible any real co-operation or any satisfactory transaction of the government's business. Until recently I have continued to hope of the treasury In your hands." to the transaction of the government's business might change for the better, but your peculiar disposition in this re gard has continued to grow so as now to render quite impossible any substan tial accomplishment' Resignation Was Requested. 'a he White House tooay made public a statement written by President Taft: "Mr. Andrew's resignation as assistant secretary of the treasury was requested, submitted and accepted in view of his failure to obey orders given him by the secretary." This was the only comment President Taft had to make. Home Propose. Investigation. A congressional investigation of Secre tary MacVeagh's administration in the Treasury department is impending as tKfe result of a row of long standing between the secretary and one of his assistant secretaries, A. Piatt Andrew, which cul minated today In Andrew's resignation. Representative James Cox of Ohio to. day Introduced a resolution proposing a complete investigation of Mr. MacVeagh' administration.
