The general's letter to Secretary
"Dear Mr: Secretary:
'Referring to our conversation of
a few days ago, 1 wish to say that it
has long been my desire to return to
civil life. Throughout my military
career I have been vary much occu
pied and the assignments that have
fallen to my lot during recent years
have been more or less Important.

"It now appears that my duties are
not likely to be of a character that
will require more than a portion of
my time. Under the circumstances
I feel that after the completion of
the work contemplated by the army
reorganization act I could relin
quish military duty without detri
ment to the service and thus be free
to engage In something more active.
"Therefore, unless a situation
should develop to justify my remain

indicated within the next few months.
"Should the necessity arise in a
time of crisis or otherwise, I assure
you, Mr. Secretary, I shall stand
ready to serve my country in the
futuiv. as 1 have in the past.

Organization of the democratic
county central committee is an

meeting will be in the assembly room
of the Journal building.
One of the things which the com
mittee is expected to do Is to get rid
of G. E. Hamaker, the present chair
man, who fought George E. Cham
berlain in the recent primaries and
secured from President Wilson the
letter in which Mr. Wilson subordi
nated everything to the treaty of Ver
sailles. In the democratic primaries 226
precinct committeemien were elected.
This leaves 187 vacancies to be filled,
for the county committee consists of
413, one committeeman from each pre
cinct. There is a quiet movement
now 'in progress to pick out a suc
cessor to Mr. .Hamaker. W. D. Ben

succeed himself to this position, as
he is a candidate for state public

dual organization has never been tried
in local polities, out tne democrats
are willing to experiment. With two
