Transcripts in Effort to
Positive proof thart the stenograph
er for Prosecutor Fickert deliberately:
distorted testimony in his transcript
of the Mooney case iproceedings.
which was forwarded to Congress
man Bllanton of Texas. has been gi\v
en by Fremont Older in a letter ad-:
dressed to Senator LaFollette. The
Older letter to the senator follows:
"San Francisco, Cal., Aug. 8 1919.Q
'"H-on. Robert Al. LaFollette, Senate'
Building, Washington. D.-C.
"My dear Senator: After a lapse.
of many years, years that have car
ried me very close to the end of life,
I again turn to you for help--not for
myself. but for a cause which should
deeply concern every American. I
mean the Mooney case. You are no
doubt familiar with it. Mooney and
Billings are serving life sentences,
having been convicted of the bomb
murders on perjured testimony.
"Now comes Congressman Blanton
demanding an investigation of Sec
retary Wilson's department for hay
ing authorized an investigation of
District Attorney Fickert's activities
in the bomb case. Blanton is serving,
perhaps not consciously, the big in
terests here by trying to discredit
what has been done to expose the
most flagrant case of the breaking
down of our judicial system ever
"When I first published the Dens
more report which revealed the inner l
workings of the district attorney's th
office, the grand jury, then con
trolled by Fickert, subpoenaed me,
their object being to try to get me 1
to betray the confidence of the gov-!
ernmet officials, hoping by hook or
crook to secure in formation that
would render their white-washing of R
Fickert more plausible. ..
"My testimony not being what they e
had hoped it might be. the stenog- t
rapher who responded wholly to this
corrupt group, sent Blanton a dis
torted transcript of my testimony,
which he has made use of in his ef
forts to defend the Fickert crowd. v
The most glaring instance that 1
have yet discovered of the distortion ti
of my testimony I found in the 'C'on- c
gressional Record,' as follows: p
'Questioned by one of the grand f
jurors: "What is there in that D)ens- t
Imore report that showS that Mooney it
did not get a fair trial?'" '
" 'Answer by Mr. Older: "Noth
ing." ' i
"lt is impossible for me to remem
ber the exact words of my answer,
but I know what I said was in effect
that the Densmore report verifiedl
all the charges that had been previ
ously made that the evidence in the;
bolb ctases was 'framed.'
'I have learned that the senate is:
almost unanimously against Mooney. 1
I can understand their hatred tori
lMooney personally, because of his
record as a labor agitator. That can i
be easily accounted for on the ground I
of blind hatred, but what amazesisi
me is thiat they are not able to set
aside their dislike for Mooney andtt
see clearly what has happened in r
the courts here. In the face of the t
exposures of the glaring perjuries; c
that were committed in the trial of 1
Mooney, coupled with the statement i
made by the judge who tried Mooney,;
that the evidence was perjured, they
still refuse to make any move to
ward bringing about a new trial for
Mooney. in fact, by their silence are!
endorsing the efforts of the corrupt]
officials here, to keep these.innocentI t
men in the penitentiary.
"Aside from whether or not the
Itunjust imprisonment of Mooney has
caused disturbances among working;
classes of European countries, it
seems to me that it is the most im-,
portant matter now before the Amter
ican people that we should right this i
wrong for our own sakes, and I anm I
ceurtain that you will see it as I do. I
It is a far more important matter to I
the American people and the future t
of this great country than Article l
1i0. the grave of Confutcius, the own- i
ership of the Saar valley, or any of l
the other questions that members ofi
collgress love to turn into sounlding
phrases and roll under their tongues.
"I don't imagine there is any defi-1
nite thing that you can do, but I
thought perhaps you would be willing
to raise your voice against the ef
forts being made by Blanton to fur
t.her justify the actions of the corrutpt
officials in San Francisco who have.
committed this terrible crime, not
only against Mooney and Billings.
but against the American people.

1HOW THE A. C. M. AND THE
CLARK INTERESTS DODGE
THEIR SHARES OF TAXES
(From the New Northwe.t.)
Some interesting figure.. of ,Ptneral
interest are opened 1p by th assess
ment list.s of tMissoula county this
For example, there are in this
county a total of 966.100 aIres of as
sessable land. Of this total s.me
where in the neighborhood of o,,.
000 acres (just a little over hatll)
:re owned by the A. C. M .colmptany
and the Clark interests. "'ph re
mainder (a little less than hal' ) is
owned by the rest of tihe people of
Last year taxes paid in by all cit
izens to the counlty a nlint ied to
,$6S9,996. Of this amllount the A. C.
31. company paid $58.497. The ('lark
interests paid approximately $42.100.
Thus these two interests owning one
half the taxable land paid together
about $100,000, or a little more than
one-seventh of the taxes.
Now, of course, such a comparison
is not fair to the corporations, be
cause much of the land owned by the
Anaconda company is timber land of
uncertain value, while possibly a ma
jority of the land owned by the rest
of the people is rich agricultural land
or city property with improvements.
Still, when it is remembered that
these interests own our water, power,
light and street railways and other
valuable city property, and that tim
her land is sometimes of greater
value than agricultural land, it is ap
parent that their tax burden is lighter
than that borne by the average citi
Taxpayers whose homes were as
sessed at a higher figure than the
properties would bring if thrown on
the open market will agree with this
Those are the general figures for
last year. This year, thanks to
County Assessor Dan Currie and the
county commissioners, the figures
will be somewhat better.
It has been the custom of the A.
C. M. company to turn in its own val
nation of all timber lands. Much of
this land has never been cruised ex
cept by company employes and none
and were being held for ransom, c
which must be paid by Aug. 18.
Arrangements were immediately a
made to obtain the $15,000) in gold n
coin and send it to Barfa for the ii
payment of the ransom, as it is C
feared the men will be killed unless a
the ransom is paid. Following is c
the text of the message issued by ,
"A telegram was received this.I
afternoon (Sunday) by Maj. L. A. i
Walton, commander of the nerol 1
unit at Fort Bliss. repeating i mes
sage signed by the two aviators who
have been missing since Sund ay,
stating they had been captured by
Mexicans and were. being held fort
$1 5,000 ransom. which must be paid o
b, Aug. 18 or they would be killed. 0
"This message was brought into t
a town in the Big Bend district by l
a well-known bandit. Col. George T.';,
l anghorne, commanding officer of a
the Eighth civalry and the Big Bendi
district, wired the commanding gen
i eral of the El Paso district that the r
i tmessage is authentic and that he is
taking all necessary nleasures to sc
cutre the release of the aviators, and
hats presented this matter to the
proper authorities. The name of the.
place front which the message wais
sent as well as the place where the
ransom is to he paid is not given, 1
as it might interfere with the release c
of the aviators."
Lieutenant Peterson, the pilot ofr
I the biplane, is 25 years of age and is r
from Hutchinson, Minn. Lieutenant
Davis is 23 years of age and is from a
Sr trathmore, Cal., but has relatives r
in Berkeley, Cal. C
Matrfa, Tex., Aug. 1 8.--Dawklin
Kilpatrick of Candelaria, Tex., sent
a message to the Mexican bandits
late Sunday urging them to postpone
the time limit fixed it the demand!
for the paymcent of $15,100 ransom
for the release of American Aviators ,
)Davis anti Peterson until Wednesday s
because of the delay in receiving
their demand at the border, it was
announced here today.
The parents of both aviators tole- a
graphed here tonight they would 1i
luake every effort to comply with e
the demand for the ransom. One d
of the aviators' parents stated in hisI d
message he would put up the total
,,ransom if the government declinedI !
to meet the demand of the bandits.!
At a cowboy camp meeting in prog- f
tess at Fort l)avis, largely attended c
by cowboys and cattlemen from the a
Big Bend, $15,000 was secured in d
15 minutes for the payment of the't
ransom and the Marfa and Fort
Davis banks were ordered to place
the money at the disposal of the't
proper authorities at 8 o'clock Mon- ,
day morning. i
A message was also received here lt
I from Brig.-Gen. Jamnes B. Erwin, t
I commander of the El Paso military t
district, stating the $15,000 ransom c
except company officials know its
real value. This year Assessor Cur
rie increased almost all figures sub
mitted. To mention a specific in
stance. the company had turned in
360 acres at Bqnner on which tlhe
hotel and other buildings are built at
$3 an acre. This was increased to
$7,5 per acre. Another parcel of land
near Bonner turned in at $S40 was
raised to $14,000. Lumber stacked
in the wards at Bonner the company
believed to be worth (for the pur
poses of taxation, not for sale, of
course) only about $21 per thousand
feet. This was lifted to $25 per
After all, it does make a great dif
ference whether property is being
considered for the purpose of taxa
tion or interest production. Take the
case of the Missoula Street Railroad
I company. A few months -ago when
this company asked and received an
increase in street car fares, officials
insisted at the hearing conducted be
fore the ''lontana state railway com
mission that a fair valuation would
he $690,000. Mr. Phillips, auditor
t for all the Clark companies, on the
i stand for two days, never batted an
eye in insisting that such was the
proper almount upon which this comn
tpany is entitled to earn interest, But
that was at interest paying time, and
- the present is tax assessing time. As
ia result officials threw upt their hands
in horror at an assessment of $316,

pany itself less than a year ago.

The bandits holding the Americans
are believed to be Chico Cano's fa
mous band which has been operating
in the Ojinaga district for years.
Cano was wounded when troops K
