His Action Taken at the Request of Secretary Noble, and Is the Result of Serious Charges. WHAT HIS FATHER SAYS. WASHLXOTO:?, May 1C.—The secretary of the interior has accepted the resignation of G-. B. Kaum, Jr., assistant chief clerk of the pension bureau. It is understood that his resignation was called for, an^ was the direct result, of using bis influence and position to secure the appointment of persons to positions in the bureau in return for financial benefits received or promised. ST. Louis, May 16.—Secretary of the Interior John W. Noble was shown the dispatch from Washington announcing the resignation of Green B. Raum, Jr., from the pension office. The secretaay said: "Young Eaum had recently got Into bad habits. He was a frequenter of pool-rooms and a card player, I cannot In any sense hold his fattier, G'cn. Green B. Raum, responsible for the shortcoif ings of his son. Gen. Raum has my sincere sympathy. He has, as the telegram Indicates, acted the part of an honorable man and a good officer. I warned young Raum in time,' but he paid no heed to me. I fejt that his conduct was tarnishing the administration. I owed it to my sslf and to the president to take prompt and decisive action in the premises. I have nut seen Gen. Kaum and really do not expect that he will come here tc sec me. He certainly knew a. week ago that his son had to go and he approved of my action in the matter. It is an ugly business and I dislike to discuss it, but my duty was clear in the premises." CHICAGO, May 1C.—Pension Commissioner Eaum, who is in this city, was asked about the dispatch from Washington in which it is stated that his son, Green B. Eaum, Jr., has been asked to resign his place as assistant chief clerk of the pension office on account of alleged irregularities. Among these was a charge that he had improperly retained money belonging to the department and had taken pay for getting a man- a clerkship by means of a bogus exam- nation. Gen. Raum said; "Regarding my son, I will say that I in swucted him to resign his place as chief clerk because his presence in the oHce seemed 0 cause some friction. The alleged theft of money was the result of a mistake, A letter signed 'Honesty' and containing $7i was received at the pension office from a pensioner who said he had been overpaid that imount. The matter was turned over to the aw department, and my son was given the money to await the law department's labor. 5ome three months later, no trace of the sender having been discovered, it was decided to turn the money into tbe treasury. A note to hand in the 573 was sent to my son's desk. He was then and had been for some time at home indisposed. A day or two went Dy and my son had not answered the request for the money because it had not reached him. The matter was called to my at- :ention and I at once went to his house and got the money, which he had just as it was given lim. The other story was about a conspiracy tctween one Smith and a clerk named Johnson to get the former a position in the ireasury department by means of a bogus examination, in which Johnson impersonated Smith No one Intimated that my son was connected with it. Secretary Noble investigated the whole affair in my presence, and no one accused my son of anything wrong. "I have no reason to suppose that my resignation is desired by the president. Of "course I have not seen him for several weeks, but I have co intimation that he is dissatisfied with my administration of the pension office. When the stories which resulted In the Cooper investigation wera printed J went to Secretary Noble and the president and I told them that if my retention of office caused the slightest embarrassment! would resign at once, lam not » man to remain in office unless 7,bave the full confidence of my superiors. Biitn gentlemen assured me that my administration was perfectly satisfactory. I did not seete the office. It came to me in a very complimentary way and I accepted it. 1 will start for Washington at once, and when I arrive there I will bring matters to a focus at once. So far-«s J know I have the confidence of the president aud secretary, and if I am mistaken of course I shall not remain in office." Due to May Day Troubles.
