Tho correspondence is very exhaustive Friends of Commissioner Tanner decline to bo satisfied until they know all the facts in the case, and as tho publication of tho correspondence is the only way to convince them that they have all tho facts, It is thought to bo only a question of timo when tho budget will be made public. Sabatanco of the Document*. Tho correspondonco IB docidodly crisp, and will mnko interesting reading. It shows among other things that Commissioner Tanner was inclined to ignore Secretary Noblo's directions, and, indeed, his claim in at least ono instance was that the power boliiml him (the commissioner) wan greater than that which was behind tho secretary. A gentleman who is famillnf with tho contents of tho budget of correspoudenco received by the president from Secretary Noblo, while declining to repeat any portion of it, said to n representative of the United Press yesterday that, when made public, tho correspondonco would show very conclusively that there was but ono alternative for tho administration in the Into unpleasantness, and that was tho one which has resulted In tho retirement of tbo commissioner. It is learned that the correspondence was sent to the executive, and, after reading it, tho pres- dent almost Immediately determined upon his course of nclion. It liar lie Publlnliml. Secretary Noble said yesterday that ho had no intention at present of making this correspondence public, hut,lf it was doomed necessary, and there was any public demand for it, he might do so in tho near future. Commissioner Tanner was not at his office yesterday. He has taken n temporary leave pf absence until his successor is appointed.— GOTHAM'S GREAT " GALL" It Receive* a Cooler from District of Co- Inrabin Authorities.

There being no such functionary as mayor In existence here, the letter naturally fell into the hands of tho District commissioners, who yesterday returned the following response: DBA n Sin:—Tho commissioners of the District of Columbia have the honor to acknowledge tho receipt of your letterof tho llth lust., requesting tho aid and co-operation of the city of WashlnKtim, its authorities, commercial bo:lies.
