Republican SubcommitiM Falls

After All-day Session.
TAFT FOR HIS SECRETARY
Will Not Make Strong Recommer.
dations, but Shows His. Pref
erence in Mild Way.
After conferences extending over the
entire dart the subcommittee of nine of
the Republican National Committee quit
last nlsht without bavins made any se
lection for chairman of the National Com
.mltteo. As a result of the day's confer
ences the drift has been decidedly toward
Charles D. Utiles, the Presidents pri
vate secretary, and the impression last
night was that the choice Is between Mr.
HIHes and Harry M. Daugherty. who has
been prominent in Ohio politics for sev
William Barnes. Jr.. who has been fa
vorably considered for the place, has
practically been eliminated. The national
committeemen were almost unanimous In
the opinion that Mr. Barnes is the best
equipped man for the place, but the fear
was expressed that his selection would
lead to the immediate lugging in of the
Barnes issue Into the Taft campaign.
The members of the subcommittee, who
were instructed by the national commit
tee to confer with the President in re
gard to the permanent organization of
the national committee, found Mr. Tatfs
mind absolutely open on the chairman
ship subject. This was disappointing to
some members of the committee. They
wanted a definite expression Irom Mr.
Taft. and were prepared then to name
the man that he should Designate.
Taft Mnm on Preference.
The President, However, Insisted on
having the views of the committeemen,
and In giving his own opinions in regard
to several candidates. The result was
that the committeemen ended tneir days
labors without any candidate bearing tne
Taft - tag. The President, it was said,
now that he has obtained a lull expres
sion of views from the committeemen.

A movement was started late last night
to get Representative James Mann of
Illinois to take the place, but Mr. Mann
would not consent to the use of his

chairmanship situation is that five or
six candidates really want the Job. Mr.

way of Indiana would take it. And so
also would Representative McKinley of
Illinois, and one or two others. The fact
that there is something almost like com
petition for this place is regarded by
Republicans as an encouraging sign. It
iriniM. thev sav. that the political
wlsacres believe that Taft at least has a
good fighting chance.
This view of the situation was the one
reflected by most of the National Com
mitteemen who came to town to attend
the conferences yesterday. There was a
surprising cheerfulness among these com
mitteemen over the nomination of Wood
row Wilson by the Democratic conven
tion, and the announcement of the call
for the Bull Moose party. These Repub
licans declared that the big fight in this
campaign Is going to be between Theo
dore Roosevelt and "-Voodrow Wilson.
They argued that Roosevelt in an effort
to draw votes from the Democratic party
would attack Wilson's progresslveness.
They added that the so-called progres
sive vote Is going to be In a turmoil as
between Roosevelt and Wilson, and that
President Taft would poll the full con
servative strength of the country.
But little definite progress was made
at the first day's meetings of the sub
committee. After the opening meeting of the sub
committee at the New Willard yesterday
morning and during the whole afternoon
with the President at the White House,
adjournment was taken until 9:30 o'clock
to-day. Only the general situation per
taining to the chairmanship had been
canvassed. After their day's delibera
tions, the committee returned last night
to the White House to share the honors
with other members of the National
Committee and chairmen of State com
mittees In a reception given by the Presi
dent. Members of Committee.
The subcommittee consisted of Gen.
Powell Clayton, of Arkansas, chairman;
Alva H. Martin, of Virginia, secretary:
Roy O. West, of Illinois; John J. Adams,
of Iowa; Charles B. Warrer., of Michi
gan; Thomas K. Neldringhaus, of Mis
souri: F. W. Estabrook. of New Hamp
shire, Newell Sanders, United States
Senator from Tennessee, and Samuel A.
Perkins, of Washington. All the mem
bers except Mr. Perkins were present.
The President, holding the meeting to b
strictly the committee's, declined to dis
cuss the proceedings. Mr. Estabrook was
designated to speak for the committee,
but he had little to say.
At tho preliminary session of the com
mittee at the .New Willard, Gen. Clayton
briefly outlined the work to he taken up.
This consisted of perfecting the entire
organization of the National Committee
and the naming of the executive commit
tee. The subcommittee was given full
powers to act on these points without
ratification by the full committee. The
work of the. subcommittee as such will
end with the completion of the business
now before it. It will probably be left
with the chairman of the executive com
mittee to determine when, the full Na
tional Committee shall meet to map out
a. complete plan of campaign. "
Mr. Hllles and William Barnes, Jr.,
were- on hand, but neither was In the
conference. The President received Mr.
Barnes In hlsjlbrarrin the White House.
During most of the conference, which
took place while the subcommittee was

lngton Herald tourists last March. Miss
Grace Hasan, seventeen years old.
1302 Maryland Avenue Northeast, has re
ceived a letter from a young English
newspaper reporter telling of the dls.
covery of the missive.
Greatly was Miss Hagan surprised
when she received the letter, for little
did she think when she cast the bottle
into the ocean that it would ever be
found. Occasionally she did dream that
a wealthy duke or baron had discovered
the message yielded up by the sea, and
as a fitting finale had proposed marriage.
but these thoughts disappeared with the
dawning of day and the commencing of
Wrote Lengthy Letter.
Miss Hagan. together with other mem
bers of The Herald party, left Liverpool
on the return trip for Boston on Marcn
9. On the third day out from tne port,
the thought struck the young tourist ot
sending a -message out on the sea. She
hurried into the cabin, and getting a
sheet of the ship stationery, wrote a
rather lengthy letter.
Miss Hagan cannot remember the exact
text of the missive, but she tried last
night to dictate It as written aboard the
vessel. It ran something like this:
"To him who finds this message:
"I am sending this note over the sea
from the steamship Devouian while three
days out from Liverpool with the hope
that some one will find It and correspond
ltn me. I have been on a tour of the
world, and am Just returning to the
united States, my native land.
"I wish thar. you would answer the
following questions when you write:
" 'Married or single?"

"Color of hair?
"Color of eyes?
"Height and weight?

"I myself am seventeen eyars of age.'
(Then Miss Hagan agve a minute
description of herself height, weight,
kind of hair, and a score of other de
tails). "Remember, even If you don't
get this letter until five years hence,
shall still be young."
Miss Hagan procured a beer bottle
from one of the ship attendants and,
folding the note, carefully inclosed It. A
cork was fitted In tightly and rea seal

her home In Washington, and soon sne
began to forget about the bottle and the
message which it contained. But at last
the - letter came. It bore an English
postmark. Miss Hagan tore the enve

HOUSE URGED BY
Report of Charges Against
Archbald May Bo
"PROSTITUTED HIS OFFICE"
Severest Language Condemns the
Actions of the Commerce
Charging Judge Robert W. Archbald,
of the Commerce Court, with "misbehav
ior and high crimes and misdemeanors."
the report of the House Committee on
the Judiciary was submitted to the House
by Chairman Clayton, of Alabama, yes
terday. As exclusively forecast in these columns
more than two weeks ago, the report is
signed by every member of the Commit
tee. Republicans and Democrats alike
signifying their conviction that the Jurist
Is unlit to longer retain his high office.
The report will be called up In the
House to-day, and undoubtedly will be
adopted by an almost unanimous vote of
the members then present The case will
then, under the Constitution, go to the
Senate for trial. There is some belief
that the Senate will postpone hearing
the case until the next session. This
course will. It Is believed, be vigorously
opposed by members of the House com
mittee and the seven managers who will
be named by Chairman Clayton at some
Member Hear Charprra.
Practically every seat In the House was
occupied yesterday when Representative
Clayton rose In his place to read the in
dictment of Judge Archbald framed by this
Judiciary Committee. The reading was
followed with Intense interest, and at Its
conclusion Mr. Clayton gave notice that
he would ask for action on the articles
of impeachment upon the .assembling of
the House to-day.
The report on the case of Judge Arch
bald represents the ninth Impeachment
of a civil or Judicial officer of the rea
era! government, and is the first since
the trial of Judge Charles Swayne, of
Florida, who was acquitted In a trial be
fore the. Senate on February 17. 1906.
There are thirteen accusitlons against
Judge Archbald, each of them of a seri
ous character, according to the commit
tee report. The language of the report
"Your committee la fit, opinion that
Judge Arehbald'a sesar of moral re
sponsibility haa berome deadened,"
says the report In part. "He ban pros
tituted hla blKh office for personal
profit. He baa attempted by various
transaction to commercialise hla po
tentiality a Judge. He baa ihima
an overweening; dealre to make train
ful bargains with partlra hmlng eases
before blm or likely to have cnaea be
fore him. He lias degraded hla high
offlre and has deatroyed the confidence
of the public In hla Judicial Integrity."
Extrnrta from Tteport.
The report says In part:
"The testimony In the whole case
tends to support the general specifica
tion of general misbehavior. Judge
Archbald was appointed a United States
district Judge for the Middle District
of Pennsylvania March 9. 1901. and held
that office until January 31, 1911. when
he was appointed an additional I'nlted
States circuit Judge and designated one
of the Judges of the United States Com
"The testimony shows that at differ
ent times, while Judge Archbald was
a Judge of the United States District
Court, he sought and obtained credit
and In other Instances sought to obtain
credit from persons who had litigation
pending In his court. The testimony
shows that after Judge Archbald had
been promoted to the position of
United States circuit Judge and had
been designated as one of the Judges of
tne united states Commerce Court, he.
in connection with different persons.
sought to obtain options on culm dumps
and other coal properties from officers
and agents of coal companies which
were owned and controlled by railroad
"The testimony further shows that in
order to Influence the officers of the
coal companies, which were subsidiary
to and owned by the railroad companies.
Judge Archbald repeatedly sought to in
fluence the officials of the railroads to
enter Into contracts with his associates
for the financial benefit of himself and
his associates. In most Instances, the
contracts were executed In the name of
the person associated with the iudce In
the particular transaction or trade, and
the Judge's name was not disclosed on
the face of the contract. Testimony
shows, however, that he was, as a mat
ter of Tact, pecuniarily Interested in
such contracts, and that while his in
terest was not known to the nubile It
was Known to the officials of the rail
road companies and of the coal com
panies and their subsidiaries.
"The evidence discloses that while the
Judge's several associates or partners
would locate properties, the Judge would
take up the matter of the purchase or
sale of such properties with the officials
of the coal companies and railroad com
panies, which in most Instances owned
and controlled the coal companies. While
mess negotiations were being conducted
and agreements were being made and
sought to be made, the railroad compa
nies with whoso officers Judge Archbald
was making contracts and seeking to
make agreements were common carriers

TAFT MAY NAME
Resignation as Commissioner
ot Indian Affairs in Hands
ot the President.
HELD OFFICE SINGE 1909
Investigation by House Committee
Elicits Strong Testimony in
Support of Charges,
The resignation of Robert G. Valen
tine. Commissioner of Indian Affairs, is
In the hands of President Taft. and its
acceptance will be announced, together
with the name of Mr. Valentines suc
cessor, at an early day. according to a
well-founded report This action has
been foreshadowed for several months. In
the course of the Investigation conducted
by the House Committee on Expendi
tures In the Interior Department reports
of which have been published exclusively
In The Washington Herald.
Mr. Valentine became commissioner In
1909. succeeding Francis E. Leupp. He
entered the Indian Office as clerk to Com
missioner Leupp and was rapidly pro
moted, it being generally understood that
he was Mr. Leupp's choice as the latter's
Began Probe In April.
Early In the present year the Graham
committee determined to conduct an In
vestigation of the Indian Office, particu
larly against Commissioner Valentine,
and the hearings were begun In April and
have not been concluded, being interrupt
ed by the absence of Chairman Graham,
who is also chairman of the subcommit
tee of the Judiciary Committee, which
is in Seattle to investigate charges
against Judge Hanford.
As heretofore reported in The Herald,
the Graham committee, for which James
S. Eashy-Smlth is attorney, has already
heard testimony in support of charges
that Mr. Valentine has retained in tht
Indian Service, protected, and promoted
to a higher position, a superintendent
against whom charges of drunkenness,
immorality, and other misconduct have
been made and proved; that Mr. Valen
t'ne himself was a party to a gross viola
tion of the laws against the Introduc
tion of Intoxicating liquors on the Osage
Indian reservation in Oklahoma, although
at the same time expending large suras
cf money In Oklahoma and elsewhere In
suppressing the liquor traffic; that ha has
repeatedly violated the latter and spirit
f the civil service laws, and connived
with others to evade them, and aided In
in the Improp-r expenditure of public
money, and that he has willfully created
nd fabricated conditions making it pos
sible for him to secure the removal from
the service of competent and faithful
laaned Antt-Rarb Order.
About the time the investigation was
Legun Mr. Valentine came into public no
tice by Issuing, without consultation with
or authority of the President or the Sec
retary of the Interior, the so-called anti
garb order, which was subsequently re
vokel by order of the President, the
whole matter being now under consid
eration after hearings conducted by the
Secretao by order of the President.
It Is stated that the garb order is a
closed Incident so far as Mr. Valentine
is concerned, and that the reasons for his
resignation are the disclosures before
the Graham committee.

story that he as going to leave the

had no significance other than that he
was tired and wanted to oult the no-

members of the State Committee when
they elected him that he intended to
resign and oegsed that he not b elected.
He said that he also told friends In Bal

tended to resign. This, however, was his
intention before Wilson was nominated,
and the re.Milt of the convention had
nothing to do with his intention. Tac
gart said he was for Wilson, the ticket,

active as he has been In the past. He
declared that Indiana would go for

No names were suggested last night as

For more than twenty-five years Tag
gart has been a leader In his party.
His Democracy, unlike many others In
the party, was never questioned. He
always stood by the ticket and was al
ways a Democrat, when the party was
getting fat and when It was so "lowly
that none would do It reverence."
Taggart s most conspicuous service
for the party was during the campaign
eight years ago. when Judge Alton B.
Parker headed the ticket. The Judge's
nomination was forced on the Demo
crats at St. Louis by the activity of the
late David B. Hill, Democratic leader
of New York, whose fammia "T :im a
Democrat" will live long after most
persons remember that he lived at
Woolfert's Roost. New Tork.
After a campaign waged ' against the
unquestioned strength of Roosevelt. ho
was in the height of his glory and popu
larity, Parker was beaten more decisively
than any Democrat in the last decade.
In the electoral college Parker received
only 1 votes. Even ' Missouri went Re
publican, an unusual thing. However,
Taggart came up smiling after the de
feat of his candidate, but It is said by
many of his intimates that he has been
a disappointed man.
Taggart is a man of great wealth and
owns the hotels and amusements at
French Lick Springs. Iudtana. His place
Is known the world aver, and it Is be
lieved that he will devote more time to
his private Interests than eer in the
past, now since he is out of politics.

TEDDY TO PLAY
IN HOME STATE
Will Put Both Democratic and
Republican Candidates on
Third Party Ticket.
A BOLD BID FOR VICTORY
Scheme Would Entail Upon Suc
cessful Men the Support of
Oyster Bay. N. T.. July 8. A shrewd
game of scientific politics is to be played
by CoL Roosevelt this fall In the blttel
fight to carry New York State.
The former President disclosed it to
night after he had talked wttn a aeie
gatton of organization Republicans trora
Manhattan, headed by William M. Chad
bourne, a member of the New 'o. k
Roosevelt's bold scheme Is to put on
his own ticket in different districts
throughout the State Democratic or Ke
publican candidates for various offices,
who. in return for tne Indorsement or tn
Roosevelt forces, will agree to worK fo
the election of Roosevelt Presidential
electors. The candidates to go Into this
trade are to be men wno lean toward
the third party, but who do not want
for political exigencies to desert eithei
the Democratic or Republican l.ne-up.
The only visible drawback to Roose
velt's plan, it was pointed out to-day. IS
to get men who, while accepting the:
Roosevelt support, will go to the limn
In trying to put throuhg the colonel"!
Colonel' Winnlnc Cnrd.
One thing that makes Roosevelt san
guine that the scheme win work out, at
least In a number ot districts, is tnat
with three tickets in tne new. many
candidates will go Into the battle with
the dull prospect ahead of losing at lha
polls. To make themselves certain of
winning, these prospective candidates;
Roosevelt believes, will be only too eager
to give their support to his electors anil
by doing It get on the tniry party Dal
lot In every instance where this plan Is
carried out If Roosevelt is able to ac
compllsh It at all the Republican and
Democratic candidates will remain upon
their own party ballots, apparently
supporting the Taft or Wilson elec
tors. "Many Republicans and Denxttrata
in New Tork. in certain districts, are
party iicKet as progressives ana are
eager to support our electors." said
Roosevelt to-night. "We are working"
upon It now. and I think you will And
a number of them on the third party
T. ft. In Good Hnraor.
Asked if the same plan might be at
tempted In other States, such as Penn
sylvania and Illinois, where the Roose
velt and Taft forces are struggling for
supremacy. Roosevelt replied:
"I'm sure I do not know about that
but I do know about New York-"
Roosevelt showed good humor after"
the departure of his vis, tors, for they
told him. he said, that the situation In
the State is extremely hopeful.
Now that the third party call to arms
Is out. Roosevelt regards tho move as
well under way. While it Is believed
that the colonel will go to Chicago to
direct the work of the convention on
August 5. he said tonight that he was
not sure of it.
"I may stay at home and play tennis."-
he remarked. No word could be drawn
from Roosevelt as to who he favors for
the Vice Presidential nomination. The
colonel's preference lies between Gov.
Johnson of California and Judge Ben
Lindsay of Colorado. The betting is on
The conspicuous absence from the third
party call of the names of Gov Stubbs
of Kansas. Gov. Gl.vsscock of West Vir
ginia, and others of the original seven
governors wa broached to the colonel
nj- Mlllilia la Loynl.
"I'm glad you mentiolned that." ho
ejaculated. "William Allen White, of
Kansas, and a lot of others whose names
were not on the call have telegraphed
me. protesting that their names were
left off. Now. I had nothing to do with
It. The whole thing was left to the
Roosevelt organization In the differsut
"Gov. Johnson's name, as well as those
of Gov. Vessey of South Dakota and
Gov. Carey of Wyoming, were put on by
the organizations in their States- Gov.
Stubbs' name did not go down because
the governor did not ask. I did not ask
him if he wanted it. Stubbs is with me
heart and soul."
"How about Gov. Hadley of Missouri"
"Gov. Hadley is in sympathy with the
cause and will work for It." replied
Rocsevelt. He went on to explain that
in States where the Republican organ
ization Is controlled by the progressives,
as in Kansas, the Roosevelt men will
work within the organization.
"It would be no use for them to set up
a third t-rty ticket." said Roosevelt. "In
more than half a dozen States we have
electors already named who are going to
vote for the third party candidates in the
electoral college. In those States it
would be folly to run a third ticket.
Write to White.
"Gov. Stubbs will light for the pro
gressive cause, and so will Gov. Hadley
and many others who are to stay within
the Republican organization."
