EVIDENCE THAT ALASKAN IN-
sTEREST^:WORKED TO SECURE
DID NOT FEAR TO LAY CASE
BEFORE NEW SECRETARY
Arguments for Change in Legislation
iPresented by Falcon Joslin, Who
Operates Coal Railroad in Alaska—
Glavis Charges Immediately Follow
Washington, March 8.—"Only one
man in the United (States is, in a po
sition to frame .an entirely accurate
verdict on the Ballinger-Pinchot in
vestigation," said one of the attorneys
whp has followed closely that investi
gation, "and, that man is President
Taft. He is the only man who
knows all the influences brought to
bear upon himself for the appointment
Ballinger as secretary of .the
But that investigation has brought
out that, whatever may have been the
moving cause for Ballanger's ap
pointment, the coal interests -of Alaska
very evidently, had such confidence in
Ballinger that they did not fear to lay
their case frankly before him the mo
ment he was in office. (During Febru
ary, 1909, possibly before the country
at large was informed that Ballinger
was to be the new secretary of the in
terior, a meeting was held in Seattle
attended by about twenty persons in
terested in lAlaska coal.) It is not
stated who those twenty were, but
from the documents filed at the Bal
linger-Pinchot investigation, it would
appear likely that .most of them were
of the 'Cunningham group.
Seemed Sure of Their Man.
At this meeting a committee was ap
pointed to lay the Alaska coal situation
before the interior department. The
Taft administration iwent into office
March 4, .1909, and five days later, or
on March 9, 1909, a hearing was grant
ed this Seattle committee by Assistant
Secretary Pierce of the interior depart
ment, "at the request of the secre
tary," as stated in writing by Pierce.
The principal member of the committee
to appear was Falcon Joslin of Fair
banks, who operates a railroad in Alas
ka. His argument was in the form of
a request that the interior department
ask congress for legislation which
.would permit one body of capitalists to
secure and operate not less than 5,000
acres of Alaskan coal.
But what effect this hearing had up
on Secretary Ballinger will never be
known. The hearing was full and com
plete. A transcript of the tes
timony was duly laid before the secre
tary by Pierce, accompanied by a let
ter in which the P9ints of the legisla
tion requested by Joslin were set forth.
Glavis Charges Follow.
If it was all a "frame-up" to pave
the Way for Ballinger to ask congress
to.i^app.oythe* gateff. to. the^ Aiaslfa^coal,
as the'Pmcnot "sfcfe of tlie'controversy
evidently saspected, can not now be
stated! For following fast upon the
heels of the hearing, came the first
rumblings of the Ballinger-Pinchot
controversy, then the Glavis explosion,
and the publication of .the Glavis
charges. When congress convened and
Ballinger"s annual report came out it
had very little to say about Alaska
coal. In fact, about all it did say was
that no coal patents had been issued
and that congress ought to appropri
ate money for an adequate survey of
the territory in order that citizens could
enter lands there. And even this re
quest, while it referred to the coal
situation in general terms, was coupled
with the suggestion that the survey
was also needed to give farmers an
oppportunity to get at the agricultural
resources of the territory.
And so it is that if the suspicions
of certain people are correct, that Bal
linger left his place as commissioner
of the general land office in the spring
of 1908, when the Alaska coal land law
of that year was assured—in support
of which he appeared before a com
mittee of congress—that he became at
torney for the Cunningham claimants
only to fijid that this law was useless,
and that he was then placed in the
Taft cabinet for the purpose of secur
ing legislation which would do the bus
iness and let the big companies get the
coal—if these suspicions are correct the
fact will now probably never be con
firmed. But if they are correct they
only show how desperate a game men
will play when they have in sight a
prize of millions.

For Inlanta and Children.
The Sea, the Sand, the Stars.
I telephoned as soon as I reached
my hotel, and I had not known ho%y
much I had hoped from seeing her
until I learned that she was out of
town. I hung up the receiver, almost
dizzy with disappointment, and it was
fully five minutes before I thought of
calling up again and asking if she
was within telephone reach. It
seemed she was clown on the bay stay
ing with the Samuel Forbeses.
Sammy Forbes! It was a name to
conjure with just then. In the old
days at college I had rather flouted
him, but now I was ready to take him
to my. heart. I remembered that he
had always meant well, anyhow, and
that he was explosively generous. I
called him up.
"By the fumes of gasoline!" he said,
when I told him who I was. "Blake
ley, the Fount of Wisdom against
Woman! Blakeley, the Great Un
kissed! Welcome to our city!"
Whereupon he proceeded to urge
me to come down to the Shack, and
to say that I was an agreeable sur
prise, because four times in two
hours youths had called up to ask if
Alison West was stopping with him,
and to suggest that they had a vacant
day or two.
"Oh—Miss West!" I shouted polite
ly. There was a buzzing on the line.
'Is she there?"
Sam had no suspicions. Was not
I in his mind always the Great Un
kissed?—which sounds like the Great
Unwashed and is even more of a re
proach. He asked me down promptly,
as I had hoped, and thrust aside my
"Nonsense," he said. "Bring your
self. The lady that keeps my board
ing-house is calling to me to insist.
You remember Dordthy, don't you,
Dorothy Browne? She says unless
you have lost your figure you can
wear my clothes all right. All you
need here is a bathing suit for day
time and a dinner coat for evening."
"It sounds cool," I temporized. "If
you are sure I won't put you out
very well, Sam, since you and your
wife are good enough. I have a
couple of days free. Give my love to
Dorothy until I can do It myself."
Sam met me himself and drove me
out to the Shack, which proved to be
a substantial house overlooking the
water. On the way he confided to me
that lots of married men thought they
were contented when they were mere
ly resigned, but that it was the only
life, and that Sam, junior, could swim
like a duck. Incidentally, he said that
Alison was his wife's cousin their re
spective grandmothers having, at
proper intervals, married the same
man, and that Alison would lose her
good looks if she was not careful.
"I say she's «worried, and I stick to
it," he said, as he threw the lines to
a groom and prepared to get out.
"You know her, and she's the kind of
girl you thinfc you can read like a
book. But you can't don't fool your
self. Take a good look at her at din
ner, Blake you won't#lose your head
like the other fellows—and then tell
me what's wrong with her. We're
mighty fond of Allie."
He went ponderously up the steps,
for Sam had put on weight since I
knew him. At the door he turned
around. "Do you happen to know the
MacLure's at Seal Harbor?" he
asked irrelevantly, but Mrs. Sam
came into the hall just then, both
hands out to greet me, and, whatever
Forbes had meant to say, he did not
pick up the subject again.
"We are having tea in here," Doro
thy said gaily, indicating the door
behind her. "Tea by courtesy, be
cause I think tea is the only bever
age that isn't represented. And then
we must dress, for this is hop night
at the club."
"Which is as great a misnomer as
the tea," Sam put in, ponderously
struggling out of his linen driving
coat. "It's bridge night, and the only
hops 'are in the beer."
He was still gurgling over this as
he took me upstairs. He showed me
my room himself, and then began the
fruitless search for evening raiment
that kept me home, that night from
the club. For I couldn't wear Sam's
clothes. That was clear, after a per
spiring seance of a half hour.
"I won't do it, 3am," I said, when
had draped hfs dress-coat on me toga
fashion. "Who am I tc have clothing
to spare, like this, when many a poor
chap hasn't even a cellar door to
cover him. I won't do it I'm selfish,
hut not that selfish."
"Lord," he said, wiping his face,
"how you've kept your figure! I can't
wear a belt any more got to have
He reflected over his grievance for
some time, sitting on the side of the
bed. "You could go as you are," he
said finally. "We do it all the time,
only to-night happens to be the an
nual something or other, and—" he
trailed off into silence, trying to
buckle my belt around him. "A-good
six inches," he sighed. "I never get
into a hansom cab any more that I
don't expect to see the horse fly up
in the air. Well, Allie isn't going
either. She turned down Granger this
afternoon, the Annapolis fellow you
met on the stairs, pigeon-breasted
chap—and she always gets a head
ache on those occasions."
He got up heavier and went to the
door. "Granger is leaving," he said,

he asked, with his hand on the knob.

to his former position on the bed.

drew a long breath and faced about.
I had just then only one object in life
—to find Alison, to assure her of my
absolute faith and confidence in her,
and to offer my help find my poor
self, if she would let me, in her
She was not easy to find. I searched
the lower floor, the veranda and the
grounds, circumspectly. Then I ran
into a little English girl who turned
out to be her maid, and who also was
searching. She was concerned be-
becausc the tray of food she carried
would soon be cold. I took the tray
from her, on the glimpse of something
white on the shore, and that was how
I met the girl again.
She was sitting on an over-turned
boat, her cbin in her hands, staring
out to sea. The soft tide of Ae bay
lapped almost at her feet, and the
hazily into the sands. She looked like
a wraith, a despondent phantom of
the se^, although the adjective is re
dundant Nobody ever thinks of a
cheerful phantom. Strangely enough,
considering hei evident sadness, she
was whistling softly to herself, over
and over, some dreary little minor air
that sounded like a Bohemian dirge.
She glanced up quickly when I made
a misstep and my dishes jingled. All
considered, the tray was out of the
picture the sea, the misty starlight,
the girl, with her beauty—even the
sad little whistle that stopped now
and then to go bravely on again, as
though it fought against the odds of
a trembling Hp. And then I came,
accompanied by a tray of little silver
dishes that jingled and an unmistak
able odor of broiled chicken!
"Oh!" she said quickly and then,
"Oh! I thought you were Jenkins."
"*Timeo Donaos—what's the rest of
it?" I asked, tendering my offering.
"You didn't have any dinner, you
know." I sat down beside her. "See,
I'll be the table. What was the old n^klace'
fa4ry tale? "Little goat bleat little

to be the goat, too."
She was laughing
"We never do meet like other peo

ought to shake hands and say how

laughed again, joyodsly, this time.

I suggested. "At the time, I thought
there could be no place better than

"How alliterative you ate!" she
said, trying to be flippant. "You are

But she ate nothing, after all, and
hair in small damp curls against her
face, and little by little the tide re
treated, leaving our boat an oasis in
a waste of gray sand.

in mine. But when I raised ft to my

said, to break an awkward pause,
"and so, when I'm fidgety, or have
something on my mind, I whistle. I
hope you don't dislike It?"
"I love it," I asserted warmly. I
did when she pursed her lips like
that I was mad to kiss them.
"I saw you—at the station," she
said suddenly. "You—-you were in a
hurry to go." I did not
and after a pause she drew a long
breath. "Men are queer, aren't they?"
she said, and fell to whistling again.
After awhile she sat up as if she
had made a resolution. "1 am going
to confess something," she announced
suddenly. "You said, you know, that
you had ordered all this for something
you—you wanted to say to me. But
the fact is, I fixed it all—came here,
I mean, because—I knew you would
come, and I had something to tell

"I don't want to hear anything that
distresses you to tell," I assured her.
"I didn't come here to force your con
fidence, Alison. I camo because I
couldn't help it." She did not object
to my use of her name.
"Have you found the—your pa
pers?" she asked, looking directly at
me for almost the first time.
"Not yet. We hope to."
"The—police have not Interfered
"They haven't had any opportunity,"
equivocated. "You needn't distress
rourself about that, anyhow."
"But I do. I wonder why you still
believe in me? Nobody else does."
"I wonder," I repeated, "why I do!"
"If you produce Harry Sullivan,"
she was saying, partly to herself, "and
if you could connect him with—Mr.
Bronson, and get a full account of
why he was on the train, and all that,
it—it would help, wouldn't it?"
I acknowledged that it would. Now
that the whole truth was almost in
my possession, I was stricken with
the old cowardice. I did not want to
know what she might tell me. The
yellow line on the horizon, where the
moon was coming up, was a broken
bit of golden chain my heel In the
sand was again pressed on a wom
an's yielding fingers I pulled myBeK
together with a jerk.
"In order that what you tell me
may help me, if it will," I said con
strainedly, "it wonld be necessary,
perhaps, that you tell it to the police.
Since they have fouud the end of the

peated slowly. "What about the end
I stared at her. "Don't you remem
ber"—I leaned forward—"the end of
the cameo necklace, the part that was
broken off, and was found in the
black sealskin bag, stained with—
"Hlood," she said dully. "You mean
that you found the broken end? And
then—you had my good pocket-book,
and you saw the necklace in It, and
you—must have thought—"
"I didn't think anything," I
hastened to assure her. "I tell you,
Alison, I never thought of anything
but that you were unhappy, and that
I had no right to help you. God
knows, I thought you didn't want me
to help you."
She held out her hand to me and I
took it between both of mine. No
word of love had passed between us,
but I felt that she know and under
stood. It was one of the moments
that come seldom in a lifetime, and
then only in great crises, a moment of
perfect understanding and trust.
Then she drew her hand away and
sat, erect and determined, her lingers
laced in her lap. As she talked the
moon came up slowly and threw Its
bright pathway across the water.
Back of us, in the trees beyond the
sea wall, a sleepy bird chirruped
drowsily, and a wave, larger and bold
er than its brothers, sped up the sand,
bringing the moon's silver to our very
feet. I bent toward the girl.
