His dis'- posltion, however, appears to bo not to show any resentment, but to maintain cordial relations with tho administration. Ho said: "Tbo president dil not ask for my resignation, nor did'ho advisa that I resign. Ho assured mo, however, that tho Investigation Into the affairs of tho pension office had developed nothing that reflected upon my honesty or my good Intentions, and said that It I remained in office Secretary Noble would resign. Tho dismemberment of the cabinet Is a very serious thing, and 1 decided that It was better that I should resign, since tho unreasonable prejudice of Mr. Noble could not bo overcome." Secretary Nohlo Interviewed. When Secretary Noble returned from tho White Houso yesterday afternoon he said: "The president has written Mr. Tanner a very cordial letter nnd I am glad that he has done so." Reference wns made to the published statsmenb of an unfriendly fooling between the secretary and tho commissioner. Gen. Noblo said that there had boon no break In his personal relations with Mr. Tanner, and that there wns nothing personal In the onuses which led to tho severance of their official relations. Tho secretary said that it was entirely duo to a difference of opinion in regard to matters of oflklal administration. Gen. Noblo referred to a newspaper report that he and Secretary Tracy had oxcbangod aoino sharp words at tho White Houso Wednesday on Tanner's case, ami said it was a lie out of whole cloth. He added that tho same cordial relations existed between himself and Secretary Tracy as between tho other members of tho cabinet. Hunney Also Enters a Denial. Assistant Secretary Bussoy, In talking to a reporter about recent published statements alleging that ho (Gen. Bussoy) had worked up tho cose against Tanner, and had shown a hostile disposition toward the commissioner, sald^that. there was no truth in such statements. He had boon called upon to pass as a lawyer upon the commissioner's decisions, nnd had in all cases simply expressed his opinion as to their legality, and had gone no further. Ho denied that there was any unfriendly feeling between himself! and the commissioner. epcrtsof HIM confercnro berj Wednrslriy iver tho Tanner cas", anil of newspaper tatements b^arini; on tho attitude of .Secretary Noblo in thii matter, that have appeared rom timo to time, said: "You know the ^resident Is not a believer in much talk, anil '. don't like to Ray anything about the pension office matter, but th?ro aro ono or two misstatemonts that oughttobe correrto'L N«> ssuo was ever mudo by Secretary Noblo to the president as to whether ho or Mr. Tanner should gn. Next there wag never any formal cabinet consultation nbouv tho mnt- ;or nnd there wns no disagreement whatever among tho members, much less any exchange of incivilities. The president had several times during the summer mado suggestions to Mr. Tnnner which ho hoped would have good effect, as ho feels very kindly to him personally.
