RUMOR OF SECRETARY'S
DESPITE HIS DENIAL
to Keep Tab
(By Associated Press)
Washington D. C July 31. Each
day the rumor that Secretary of Agrl-
culturo Wilson will soon retire grows
stronger and It Is stated now that ho
would havo left the cabinet even had
not the cotton scandal cropped out al-
though Mr. Itooaevelt wants It perfect-
ly understood that he consider that
Secretary "Wilson knew nothing of the
"leakage" which has resulted In such
an uproar. It Is stated hy a high of-
ficial unofficially that probably be-
fore congress reassembles there will
be a new secretary of agriculture. Al-
though tho present Incumbent has had
abundant experience and accomplished
much good It - understood that the
pros dent Is seeking for a mar to put
at the head of the department who
will keep his eyes and ears a little
wider open so that the underlings
during tho balance of his administra-
tion may not havo the opportunity to
Juggle or sell Information regarding
cottou tobacco rice or any othor
Wilson's Vebemeht Denial.
Washington D. C July 31. "Mali-
ciously gotten up maliciously circulat-
ed by those that Ho." This" is the de-
nial of Mr. Wilson secretary of agri-
culture to the story that he had sent
his resignation to tho President "I
havo not resigned and don't Intend to
resign." declared the sc -rotary with
emphasis "I am not discouraged with
condit.onB in the donarUtmnt. I am
- -t.'.'wjHrn. -
I never felt better In my
flfo than I do
now. I think the Antarican people nro
well worth serving. I am going to stay'
righr here serving them."
In tho olght and a half years that
Mr Wilson has been hoad of tho de-
partment thore has baen in progress a
continual Investigation. Iji that tlmo
no less than 291 persons from low to
high stations hav been dismissed by
tho secretary summarily for the good
or tho sorvlce. Of this number no less
than 107 have been removed under
charges. No dopartmJnt has been
more constantly purified or moro caro-
nUv guarded against tho Introduction
of gratib. .. ii0i n?c jina spared
no neck when lrregularlty"was 'found.
But all this has been done quietly In
tho regular course of business. Other
departments havo had their scaudals
nnd their publicity; tho agricultural

ing its mothods. So when tho cotton

"Now on this 22d day of July. 1905
It being one of the days of tho regular
July. 1905 term of tho said board of
county commissioners and the board
having under consideration tho matter
of continuing tho prosecution of the
case of tho Board of County Commis-
sioners vs. Horace Speed and tho
board having concluded and ordered
that said prosecution of said caso to
tho supreme court of said territory
and If needs be to the supreme court
of the United States be continued.
"The board deems It advisable to
set forth In brief form the reasons Im-
pelling "them In this course: First:
The board believes and tho belief is
warranted by the facts as developed
by undisputed evidence that said
Horace Speed obtained tho contract
and the money from this county whlcb
Is the basis of said suit by flagrant
and unconscionable bribery of mem-
bers of the former board ot county
ronim sooner. Second That be ob-
tained the sum of over $8000 from tbi
county contrary to the terms of ft'
contract and by bribery awl corruption.
Third That a grand Jury of this conn
ty composed of its most stable- and re-
putable citizen found that said con-
tract and the money were obtained la
pursuance to a corrupt conspiracy be-
tween said Horace- Speed ami members
of the then board of county commi.-
s'oncrs. Fourth That said suit was
filed In Logan county thU territory to
recover the money so paid to said
Speed because .! kept out of tb Juris
diction of the- court ot this- countysoui-
til there was danger of the causclpt
action becoming barred by the statute
of "limitation. Fifth That said cause
was Med In Logan county on the 23rd
day of October 1902 and was not de
termined until January 2S 1905 and
then not on. facts biufor this period of
over two VjJHirs Sate" cause was delayed
by dliator&Jmatfpmi and other means
by said Speed:'S Srxtli. That since tho
tiling of said causa said Speed has
maintained a lobby at Pawneo seoklng
at each meeting of the board and sol
licltlng members of th s board at other
times to dismiss paid cause to the end
that the facts may never bo knowji. -
"For tho foregoing reasons' this
board believes that It Is their duty to
continue aald cause to ib end that Om
facts may be made public the monoy
