I (By the Associated PresaJ Washington, Jan. 22.—Dr. Wiley was held "not guilty" of conspiracy to evade th-s law in a report filed in the House today by the committee which conducted the investigation of the charges upon which the President was asked to dismiss the Chief Chemist. Not only does the committee absolve Wlicy from criticism for era- ploying Dr. Rushby of New York, but it attacked the whole administration of the pure food law and the methods of the A'^rjcultural Hepartment in particular. The report says in part: LanirniiffiH of the Report. "We find that the charges of conspiracy liave not been established. On the contrary the accused ofllcials were actuated throughout by a desire fo procuro for (he Hureaii of ('hemis- try an able assistant In Dr. Kushby under terfn.1 believed to be In accord v.lth the law. I "The administration of the Pur Food law began with a policy of ne- ttatlon and compromise between the Secretary of Agriculture and the purveyors of our national food supplies. Yciir committee does not question the sincerity nor the motives of the Sec- r»tary of Agriculture. However, tho Honorable Secretary, from the beginning apparently has assumed that hla duties are judicial whereas they are wholly administrative and ministerial."
