Mr. Buckner said: "We Intend to follow the evidence which comes into our possession no matter whera It leads. Where persons In the employ of the government are Implicated there will ba no quiet resignations under the a�-pedlent of silence. It is approprlMe to clean house and dutt the furniture before getting ready to entertain the bootlegger. With this policy both Qeneral Andrews and Major Oreen, his asslsunt, are In thorough and determined accord." Imroanlty to IVw, He also said even the number of witnesses who would be allowed to testify before the grand jury under promises ot immunity would be limited. Coincident with his unrv>unre-ment of the sweeping offensive against the alleged Dwyer ayndlcate, dispatches from Washington quoted General Lincoln C. Andrews, prohibition heud, as saying the arrest of William Dwyer and twenty alleged confederates was only the Btart ot similar demonstratlono throughout the country. He aald the cleanup started here would spread to Florida, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Ptttaburgli. Baltimore, Chicago and .Snn Francisco.

At tho same time the republican commltteo on committoea In tlm house carried out tho policy iidopteil by the party caucus last spring of removing supporteis ot tho late llob-ert M.

Nelson of Wisconsin, who was Mr. I,,a Follette's campaign manager last year, was removed from tho nil-powerful rules committee, nnd the unseatlnR ot Jamea A. Frear, also of tlint state, as a member of the ways and maln� committee, which handles revenue legislation, was rallflod. None of tho other innurgents has a place on tmportiint comn>lttec� but some hold cither chairmanships or ranking pliiccN on minor standing bodies of tho house. Whether thuy are to retain thcso positions la a problem with which tho majority party still has to deal. Organization of these committees was postponed today until Monday afternoon with some leaders determined to reach their decision on this matter on the |>aiU ot tho "regularity" shown by the Insurgents in their votes that day on house organization nnd adoption ot the rules. At their conference today the Wisconsin delegation decided to issue a formal statement tomorrow clearly defining their position. There were Indications that ita members Intend to act as a unit Monday and to adhere lo the position they took two years ago when they made a determined fight for amendment of the.thcn existing rules. The senate republican confoienco was extremely brief, tho single action taken being the nomination of Kdwln P. Thuyer of IndlananolH, as secretary of the senate to succeed the lato George A. Sanderson. Leaders explained that the question of the political status to be accorded Senator lAi Follette was not raised pending a meeting Monday of the party committee on committees. Nye Qnmtlnn Passed. Tho ropubllcanK also fulled to take up the question of the legality ot the appointment of Gerald V. Nye, as a senator from North Dakota to succeed the late Kdwln F. Ljidd. Tho Nye case continued today to bo a subject of Indlvlduu) conferences among senators, however, with a rather wide divergence of opinion among them. A formal protest against the seating of Governor Soille's appointee was lodged with th* president of the senate by the state central committee nt North Dakota and copies ot r<�.olutlonB on the subject, adopted yesterday by this committee at Fargo, were received by republican leaders. . These resolutions were discussed at a meeting between Mr. Nye and Senators Frazler of North Dakota, and Norrls, republican, Nebraska. Afterwards the Nebroska senator declared that It was absurd to suggest that the republicans ot the senate should refuse to seat Mr. Nye almply because they control a majority In that body. Democrata Meet. Mr. Nye declared that "the situation doesn't look a bit worse at this time than It has all the time and It has always looked good." House democrats held tlioir final pre-sesslon caucus late today, completing committee assignments.
