A LLi ot the water has been pumped from the inside of the cofferdam In
closing the wreck of the battleship Maine In Havana harbor, but the
wreck has not yet been entlraly exposed to view, as it is burled In
mud about thirty-five feet deep . Removing this mud is a slow process,
because it is searched closely -for the remains of the men whose bodies were
not found at the time the battleship was destroyed. Bones that have been
recovered belonged to eighteen oi. twenty bodies, and more are being found
'"'r -t!!vE!! the mud is removed, which will not be for several weeks, It
will uot be possible to answer the question as to the original explosion thut
destroyed the Maine.; One, of the pictures above shows the incrubted hull of

I Sallm,.-Or Aug. S0.-living Sec-(
retary' Olcott to understand that, he,
as state printer, is holding his offices
in the state capitol by virtue of leg-islatiy-e
will, rather than by courtesy .
of secretaries of state; State Priniter
Duniway sent his untlmatum to Olcott 1
todaj relative to removing the state
printing plant and advised him that
he wfculd not change its location to
any bther place In the city, ,
Sefreral. months ago Olcott advised'
the state printer that he would have
to remove the plant by August 31. ,:
"1 will start action as soon as. the
time is up," said the secretary of
state today. "W. C. Bristol, of Porti
land, and Charles Li McNary, of Sa
lem, will assist as counsel In what
ever action is taken. 1 Intend to go

Itt writing to the secretary and giv
ing his reasons for his stand, State
Printer Duniway said:
j 'In reply to your letter pf June 8,
regarding the space occupied by the
state printing plant wish to state
that' I have had this matter under
careful consideration and find that
the secretaries of state have not been
furnishing this space through cour
tesy, but because they . were directed
to do so by legislative enactment ' ;
"Since . the plant has been located i
in its present quarters all the legis
lative assemblies h8,ve known its loca
tion and have considered the advan
tages to the state worth the space.
I have been unable to And that this
declaration of legislative, will has at
any time been rescinded or repealed,
and J cm therefore advised that the
occupancy of the quarters used by me
in the transaction of my official duties
Is expressly warranted by law and
that I cannot be ousted from them
lawfully without some new legisla
tion. .;':; . ,--
"I am not willinr to' remove my
plant from Its present quarters,' and
seek a location elsewhere in the city
of Salem, , This would Involve much
expense and greatly handicap me in
the performance of my official du
ti. ' ":. ! " ' . :'- .
"If, therefore you Insist upon the
removal of my plant from the capitol
building, there is a controversy be
'if - iv1-1 -f 4k,rt.Nt.-'.'AiA.--.
tween us with reference to my right
to remain and your authority to oust
me therefrom. '
1 will be glad to co-operate with
you in any proper way to secure a
decision of this question by the pro
per tribunal, but I will not move my
plant and handicap me in the per
formance of mj public duties until the
questions above referred to have been
determined against me by the proper
tribunal," ; ' ; '
