Noble has returned to Washington.
His visit here was a short one. He ar

resignation as bead of the department
of the interior is in the hands of Presi

Secretary Noble as one of the new judges
of the United States circuit court. It has
been rumored some time that Secretary
Noble had resigned or intended to re
sign, but they have always been denied
at Washington . The fact is, neverthe
less that President Iliirrinon has re

will remain in the cabinet until the
