fore 10:30 the Cabinet with the exception
of' Secretary Shaw, had assembled, in
their room in the executive offices. 'They j
were in session shortly before noon, j

statement regarding conditions in his de- !
partment, the Postmaster-General nat- '
urally consuming more time than tho !
others in detailing the progress of the in
vestigations in his department. Secre

after the meeting about the general staff j
and the general officers who are to be

ing the Investigations of the depart
ment's affairs. It is bis intention that I
the Investigation shall be sweeping and
thorough. This afternoon the President J

during which It Is understood the PresI- ;
dent expressed to Mr. Payne his desire
that the Investigation now being made
should be as searching as the Ingenuity I
of the officials could make it. and should
be pursued until the department has
been purged of even the suspicion of
dishonesty. Immediately after Mr.
Payne returned to the department from
tho White House he sent for Fourth As
sistant Postmaster-General Brlstow,
whom he acquainted with the President's
views on the investigation.
In view of the constant activity of the
23 Inspectors employed In the work and
of the President's earnest approval of
tho investigation and his instructions to
"go to the bottom," important action at
any moment would occasion no surprise.
