Some months before that a protest
haU been received from members of
the Crow tribe against the recognition
of Mrs. Gray as attorney. Assistant
Secretary of the Interior Adams ad
dressed a note toner stating that sne

of attorney, although lje did not know
but that she might have some legal

It was after this notl.ee had been sent

These tribal rolls, contain a large part
of the records on which Indians base
their property rights within the reser

whenever a question of property arises.
The rolls were taken from the Indian

that they were never outside the De

Mrs. Gray has been a thorn In the
side of a number of Indian commis

lend, In short has become distinctly a
doubtful, stale.; If 'the colored.voto and.
the big Progressive vote at the west
end stick as they show every disposition
to do, and the Baltimore organization
knifes WJlson, Roosevelt will curry the'
State. There ,ls no possibility of Taft
winning, anyhow. Whatever the ma
chine does to wreak Its vengeanco on
Wilson, It will do for Roosevelt
Taking a general survey, tho Herald
figures-Indicate some gains for Taft
In places where they cannot possibly
save him, and soxne gains for Roose
velt In places where they seem likely
to make Roosevelt the winner. Thus,
Michigan's figures place Roosevelt In
tiro loud, though by u slender plural-,
Ity, with Wilson second. Iowa, on the
other hand, places Wilson first and
Roosevelt second; Minnesota docs the
same. These figures from States that
In the past havo bcn overwhelmingly
Republican simply show that Taft Is
not in the running.
The election win fin AtAJ l... t.A
direction given, In. the last weeks, to
the remnant of Republican strength
when, recognising that Taft has no
chanco. In confronts final decision
whether It will go to tho Democratic
or Progressive ticket. Tho growing In
disposition, as election approaches, to
turn the nation over to tho business
Brogram and economic policies of the
lemocrats, constitutes the basis for
Progressle confidence that In the last
crystallization the antl. Democratic de
merits wilt get together behind Rosevelt
end land him a winner.
T. R. Gains in Hew York.
That he will be a strong second,' with
something like twice the vote Taft can
secure, 11 now generally conceded by
Impartial observers. The problem Is
whether he can continue to gain enough
to make him the winner.
Now York State gives now a grand
total of 1.985 for Wilson, 1,720 for Roose
velt, and l.E for Taft That means
that the State la verv cloln a. htw..n
Roosevelt and Wilson. Roosevelt Is re
ported as making heavy ar&lns In Kings
county (Brooklyn), and Wilson and
uooseveii are doiii reported gaining in
some other sections. Taft Is credited
with some gains In parts of Manhattan.
But the tendency of It all is to figure
Taft out or It, and leave the State to
be determlnod at last by,the disposition
of the Republican fragments.
It must be borne in mind that Roose
velt Is ler.vlng tomorrow for a mid
Western campaigning tour. In the very
territory where he Is and has been
strongest This will materially change
conditions In that region. It will prob
ably decide Indiana in his favor. That
State, in the poll today, cUes Taft
1.1, Roosevelt 2.20. and Wilson 2.CJ9.
Let Roosevelt enthusiasm get turned
loose In that State, and a switch to
him, strong enough to take the lead
away from Wilson, will be altogether
The eomin gtrtp will carry Roosevelt
Into the Michigan peninsula. He al
ready is reported as leading in Michi
Minnesota reports "St votes for Taft
392 for Roosevelt and 678 for Wilson.
This manifestly does not give Roose
velt his fair proportion. If any of the
advices which have come from the
North Star State are worth the snat
of your finger. Roosevelt and Wilson
are neck and neck there, by all ac
counts; and Roosevelt Is going there in

Interesting Revelations Ex
pectedhFrom Men Call
ed This Week.
Interesting revelations are expected
this week In the Senate committee
probeon campaign contributions. The
utro'ja't Interest will center on Charles
P. Taft. Mr. Taft gave largely to the
precohventlon campaign for his brother
In INS, to the pre-election campaign
that year, and is supposed to have given
freely to the preconventlon campaign
Charles P. Taft will be an unwilling
witness. He will not come before the
committee and reveal the huge sums he
has expended with any eagerness. .This
Is known from the fact that when the
question 'was before the Senate some
weeks 1 ago of brosdenlng the scope of
the Investigation so as to apply to this
year's preconventlon campaign, he op
posed it through his friends In the Sen
ate, and Is alleged to have threatened
to quit contributing.
The investigation does not extend to
tho contributions In this year's pre
election campaign. So Mr. Taft will
'not have to reveal what he is giving to
the cause of President Taft in the pres
ent pre-election struggle.
Awsit Wiles' Testimony.
The testimony of National Chairman
Hllles will also be awaited with Inter
est Mr. Hllles has been sharply chal
langed by Colonel Roosevelt to bring
the proof that 8,000,000 waa expended
In the preconventlon struggle this year
for Roosevelt The colonel declared,
furthermore, that if he and Bartholdt
coold not prove their charges they ought
to be driven out of publio life for In
famy. Louis Hammerllng, of New Tork,
who Is alleged to have charge of the
huge advertising expenditures for the
Taft campaign this year, will be one
of the most Interesting of the witnesses
who wltl appear tomorrow. Charles R.
Crane will be another witness Monday
and will tell Just how much no has ex
pendedt for the La Folletto preconven
tlon campaign and for the Wilson pre
conventlon campaign. He Is alleged to
have given 170,000 to each.
Former Senator Nathan B Scott of
West Virginia, will be questioned about
what he knows concerning the Harrt
man fund. Senator Scott is alleged to
hjrve Information on this subject which
he did not disclose when before the
committee previously, because he waa
not asked about It
Will Extend To Election.
At the rate the hearings are now pro
gressing, considering the long list of
witnesses to be called. It Is unlikely
the investigation can be finished before
Senator Bankhead of Alabama, who
managed the Underwood campaign;
Lieutenant Governor Nichols of Ohio,
who managed the Harmon campaign!
and William McCombs, the manager
for Woodrow Wilson, are expected to
appear a week from tomorrow.
