Artz, it was announced to-day. has
been suspended by the governor pend-
ing the Investigation of his books arid
accounts The office is In charge of J.
U French, the governor's executive
clerk, who is conducting the investiga-
tion, assisted by an expert accountant
employed for that purpose.
(iov Lewelling admitted thin morn-
ing that he ordered the investigation,
but declined to state why he did so or
how or from whom reports of irregu-
larities in Artz's office reached his ears.
Artz also takes the credit of ordering
the examination of his books He says
that when he returned from Iowa he
heard that there was talk about him
and he at once reported the facts to
the governor and invited an investiga-
tion. He declares that the reports are
inspired by malice and come from men
in the people's party who have it in
for hi in and want to secure his re-
moval He also says that he
had seriously thought of resigning for
some time, as the salary of the office i*
only ti,600, while he can easily make
$,vkxj or $4,000 a year in the practice
of law. He poiuts to the appropria-
tion allowed to the adjutant-general's
office in proof that no oppurtunity has
been afforded him to steal. Aside
from his salary there is no appropria-
tion subject to his control except a
contingent fund of *50 • All other
funds allowed to his office must be
j draw n through the governor.
There are a number of populist in
the secret, but no one will sty how
Artz i* supposed to have operated, ii
he operated at all. It is rumored that
his requisitions through th;i governor
were afterwards changed, but this
probably Is only surmise diaries A.
Taylor, assistance superintendent of
insurance, who had a taiK with the
governor this morning says it will prob-
ably turn out that the stories
have grown out of Artz s bad
bookkeeping and nothing more.
On the other hand a subor-
dinate state officer and the man who
really caused the investigation to be
instituted says it is the end of Artz in
the state service. He says the only re-
gret is that the reports became public
before the conclusion of the investiga-
tion and final action by the governor.
Artz, he says, will be removed, but it
was hoped "to pet rid of him by resigna-
tion and without any scandal.

ahip Kcarsarffe, which now lies on a
coral shoal called Roncadorreef arrived
off quarrantine to-day from Colon.
Adin. Stanton gave the following ac-
count of the wreck of his flag ship:
"The accident occurred about •} o'clock
on the afternoon of February A
fresh northeast trade wind was blow-
ing and there was considerable surf.
The Kearsarge struck rather lightly
at first and then there was a heavy jar
and a crash when the ship went up high
and dry on the reef. We remained on
board the Kearsarge that night and were
taken ashore next day. The City of
l'ara did not come until (February 15—
about a week after we went ashore
We were taken off the Kearsarge on
the catamaran boat after working all
uightio get things ready for our de-
parture from our ship. We sent the
catamaran boat ashore about day-
break After we reached the shore
we gathered together some old sails,
awnings and duck, with which we
rigged up a tent to shelter. To in-
crease the small supply oi water we
were enabled to carry with us from the
Kearsarge we dug a well. We also had
what provisions we could save from th«?
ship. We had built rafts during the
night and early Saturday morning, in
order to transport what things we
could take away from the ship together
with e ght days' supply of water, which
permitted a supply of one pint a
day for each man There was uo
excitement, no panic, but every-
body was cool-headed and the offi-
cers and crew all united in au effort to
make the best of the situation. Lieut.
Urainard went t * Colon as soon as pos-
sible in the steam launch of the Kear-
sarge ill order to communicate with the
navy department at Washington and
charter a sicuuter to come to our relief
Anderson Robbins, one of the men, wai
drowned shortly after the wreck. The
Ship was rapidly filling with water and
he was swimming for the reef, but he
couhi uot make it and was drowned
