i Hint of Corruption Regarding
Uncle Sam Lease Criticised
IN HEARING DELAYED
Indians' Representative Says
His Clients Will Bear Out
With Secretary Fisher and P. H.
Abbott, Indian Commissioner, In at
tendance, the House Committee on
Indian Affairs today continued its in
vestigation of the charges and coun
ter charges concerning the Uncle
Sam Oil Company leases with the
T. J. Leahy, attorney for deposed
members of the council, roundly
criticised the department for reject
ing the Uncle Sam leases and assert,
ed that the seven members of the
council ousted by Secretary Fisher
"did not know to this good hour the
charges against them."
Fisher Is Indistured.
Secretary Fisher and Commissioner
Abbott were accompanied by a staff
of clerks from the Interior Department
who bore voluminous documents which
probably wlllbe offered to sustain the
action of the 'department and Its state
ment that certain transactions In con
nection with the oil leases "warranted

want the Uncle Sam Company to have
their oil lands. The committee ad

House floor. Consequently, Secretary
Fisher cannot take the stand until to
morrow. Hint of Corruption.
"The interests of the tribe have al
ways been first," asserted Mr. Leahy.
"We are willing to disclose every
transaction to anybody who has the
right to inquire.
"I have said to the Secretary, and
1 now say to the House committee, that
I know enough of what has transpired
j to state that there has been nothing
wrong, improper, or criminal In con
nection with these leases."
Mr. Leahy said Secretary Fisher had
told him vaguely of "corruption" In
connection with the leases.
"In what respect?" asked Chairman

me yet," complained the witness.
"Has the Secretary furnished any let

HOME III CAPITAL
That Is Politician's Surmise
After Chairman Applies for
Democratic National Chairman Wil
liam F. McCombs has made up his mind
to come to Washington to live at least,
for a while.
Evidence of this is found In the fact
that he has applied for resident mem
bership in the Metropolitan Club. Had
he intended to make his headquarters
elsewhere and visit Washington occa
sionally, he would have been Ineligible
to resident membership.
That Mr. McCcmbg Intends to enter
the Cabinet Is the view taken here since
the facts as to the Metropolitan Club
became known. It has been stated that
Mr. McCombs had a nattering offer to
become counsel for certain business
Interests. It Is not believed, however,
he will do that, as it would at once be
criticiseu as renecimg on tne Wilson
Another story that Mr. McCombs has
an eye on the Senatorshlp from Arkan
sas, while apparently from good author
ity, does not seem likely to eventuate.
It has stirred up strong opposition al
ready among Democratic politicians.

The order calls a minute and one

a factory on Spring street The trouble
started when pickets posted by 'the

three guards and five strike-breakers

strike-breakers not to go to work.
A crowd of several hundred strikers
and sympathizers gathered. The guards
Immediately attempted to club their
way through the crowd to the factory.
The strikers fought back. Re-enforcements
arrived from all sides and when
fifty strike-breakers working In the fac
tory rushed out to rescue their fellows
the fighting became determined and
A squad of poHce reserves charged
the struggling, ycroanilng mass of men,
women, and children, laying about
them with their clubs, and cracking
heads right and left. Eight strikers
were badly hurt and were sent to thu
hospitals. Dozens of others received
minor bruises and cuts. A dozen ar
restts were made.
The police are prepared for further
trouble now that the colder weather
has returned, and the plight of the
strikers Is becoming dally more des

of the union leaders' claim that the

today when the workers in the branch

During Spanish War.
That the Crago bill for the pensioning
of the widows and minor children of
the men who served in the Spanish war
and the Philippine Insurrection ought
to be passed was strongly urged on the
Senate Committee on Pensions today
by a large delegation of Spanish war
Among those who spoke were mem

Greene of Vermont. Anderson of Min

principal speech was made by Past
Commander M. Simmons, of the United
Spanish War Veterans.
Throughout the hearing the advocates
of the bill alluded to the "fever camps"
and told much that was startling as to
conditions there. From 10 to 12 per cent
of the deaths among Spanish war vet
erans since the war, Mr. Crago said,
showed the effects of these camps.
Mr. Greene declared fever Is a more
