Agent Held Responsible.
Secretary Fall's attention was call
ed by the solicitor to a ruling of the
comptroller general, that if a de
partmental disbursing agent pays a
person money contrary to his con
struction of the law. the agent is
held personally responsible for re
payment of the stun. The solicitor
also said that the .sum deducted from
the salaries of the employes not
benefiting, must be refunded.
Secretary Fall said today that the
Interior department law officers had
drawn up a bill which has been sub
mitted to the proper committees of
congress, looking to relief from the
situation created by the opinion, so
as to include the 80,000 within the
meaning of the retirement act.
Although the money employes
barred under the opinion have paid
into the pension fund can be re
funded, it will require an appropria
tion by congress in order to do so
without depleting the pension fund,
the secretary added.

some of them having as many as

Mr. Lawrence said most of the
stockmen in Gage county had made
money this season and that wheat
was looking fine in his section. He
said several Kansas shippers, that he
saw recently, had told him that
wheat in many fields of the sun
flower state was practically a total
