duty, hut bocnuso tho work has be
come uncongenial to him, and tho de
partment Is much too largo for n
mnn In his hcnltli.
When Payno took tho department
It was oxpectod that ho would look
after thu political end of affairs for
tho administration, on account of bis
long connection with tho National
committee, nnd acquaintance with pol
iticians throughout tho country. It
wna supposed thnt tho department
would run along vory smoothly and
would not require so very much exec
utive nctlon. Hut tho developments
of tho last few months havo bcon such
ns to chow that rigid care Is necessary
In tho management of this depart
ment, which handles so much money
and whoro thorojro opportunities for
so many Irregularities.
Tho differences between Payno nnd
Wynno resulted, first, from Payno's
criticism of tho First Assistant, be
cause tho latter was too free In giving
out reports of nbuscs nnd Irregulari
ties to tho press, whllo tho Investiga
tion wns In progress. Pnrno believes
that Wynno has alsq.jncouragcrt some
newspaper attacks upon hlrar Wynno
feels thnt Payno has not stood by him
ns ho should, and Is trying to prevent
him from getting credit for tho Inves
tigations ns far nn they havo gone.

It Is considered, at Pokln thnt the ac
