WASHINGTON, April 6.—The dosing of the post exchange at Fort Robinson, Neb., is, it is learned, only temporary and pending a decision by the judicial officers of the war department, and per­ haps by the attorney general on the question involved, namely, the right of 'state officials to interfere in the internal administration of ths affairs of army posts.
