A few sample paragraphs showing
tho manner in which Collier's asso
ciates Cunningham, Hevburn nnd
Ilalllnger are given herewith:
Clarence Cunningham lived
nt Wallace, Idaho, nt tho time
ho first became Interested In
ttho Cunningham claims. Wal
lace is the chief town of the
Coeur d'Aleno mining region,
lly a sort of financial manipula
tion, not here necessary to ex
plain, the Guggcnhelms con
tiol tho lead output of the
Coeur do'AIenes. Wallace Is
the residence of Senator W. II.
He) burn of Idahfl. Cunning
ham nnd lleyburn are, nnd have
been for jears, friends. In his
affidavit, presented by Hilling
cr to Garfield, Cunningham Bnjs
that certain of the clalmunts
fulled to come forward with
their subscriptions and that
theso expenses were advanced
by A. 11. Campboll, another
Cunningham claimant nnd u
prominent Coeur d'Aleno mine
owner, who was subsequently
reimbursed. John A. Finch,
Campbell's mining rpartner, Is
also a claimant. Another Is
Charles Sweeney, Coeur d'Alene
mine owner, who floated some
Coeur d'Alene mines and sold
them to Standard Oil Interests.
Standard Oil, Indeed, may get
deeper Into this story at some
later date. For the pfescnt It
may Interest the reader to know
that court rccoids In Seattlo
ahow that llalllnger'B law llrm
represent the Stnndurd Oil Com
,pany In three different suits.
Senator He burn was, at the
time of his election to the Unit
ed States Senate, the leading at
torney nt Wallace for some of
the largo Coeur d'Alene mine in
terestB. After the hearing on
tho Cale bill Senator lleyburn,
on April 23, 1908, introduced
In the Senate another bill which
wpuld have legalised the Cun
ningham claims, and which
would have passed but for tho
Intervention of Secretary Gar

burn and Ilalllnger appear to
have acted In concert, in our
Issue of August 28 laBt, wo

He) burn and Ilalllnger In cer
tain land matters, It is unlaw
ful for n United States Senator
to net ns attorney for persons
Inteicstcd In urging claims be
fore tho departments nt Wash
ington. It was for this orronso
that Senator Ilurton of Kan
sas and Sonator Mitchell of Ore
gon were tried aud convicted,
lleyburn wus elected Seuutor
from Idaho' January 13, 1903.
In Cunningham's books, under
date of September, 1903, nine
months after Ileyhurn's election
ns Senator, there Is 'an entiy
which reads ns follows: "Have
Bh'ieed with W. II. Jloybnrn, In
Cash or easy terms, will buy ft

rooms, in Kaimuki, 3 minute' walk

one claim of ICO acres In tho
coal, free of cost to htm, nnd
he agrees to do nil our legal
work In procuring titles, etc.,
free of expense to us." When
Cunningham, on September 4,
1908, mnde his affidavit, he
knew these records were In pos
session of the department offi
cials, (llnvls had forwarded
them with n letter calling at
tention to the lleyburn entry.
Naturally Cunningham, Ilal
llnger nnd Hu)burn, with Ilur
ton nnd Mitchell in mind, had
a terrible scare. In his affida
vit, prepared by Ilalllnger,
Cunningham attempted to ex
plain away many things. Ho
quoted a letter from Senator
lie) burn, dated October 20,
190B, to himself, In which lley
burn declares that he has fro
cuently Btated to Cunningham
thnt he did not deslro to be In
terested In tho coal lands In
Alaska, and now wiltes exptess
ly to Inform him again thnt he
"does not detlro to participate
In, or be Interested In any man
ner, directly or Indirectly, in
ncqulrlng nubile, lands." Tho
letter contains 185 words. In
thoso 185 words this disclaimer
Is stated four different times, In
four different ways. Wns this
letter written nfter Olavls got

When Ilalllnger reprwenteil
Cunningham he represented all
tho Cunningham claims, Not
only this, but the record Is
quick with tho evidence of his
employment by other Alaska
coal claimants nt dllfeient
times. Under date of Decem
ber 23, 1908, n little over two
