FAVOR CONSERVATION BILL.
House Committee Acts on Appala
Washington, April 18.-The bill
creating the Southern Appalachiar
and White Mountain forest reserve
was favorably reported today in the
house by the committee on agricul
ture. The purpose of the bill is to
preserve watersheds by conservation
of trees and by reforestation, where
The bill is designed to conserve
navigable rivers, but the first appli
cation contemplated is to the forest
reseerve mentioned. The majority of
the committee says: "The agricul
tural, industrial and conmmercial fa
ture of the sections of the country, to
which it is most immediately direct
ed, is involved in the bill."
"It is the most practical and im
diately necessary of the proposed
ervation measures," say the ma
, "involving the smallest initial
uditure, the less probable future
diture and the surest return up
e investment. It seeks to con

le, Tenn., April 18.-Gover
atterson tonight announced his
candidacy for the Democrat nomina
tion to suce.eed himself. In view ol
recent political events in TennesseE
and ,the governor's pardon of Col.
- Duncan B. Cooper, convicted of the
Carmaek murder, and sentenced to 20
years' imprisonent, the statemeni
of Governor Patterson is particular'ly
interesting. Governor Patterson rep
resents the anti-prohibitionh element
of the Democracy of Tennessee, an~
in the ontset his statement declares:
"Malicious and persistent defama.
tion, while they have not harmed:
have made the burdens so.mewhat
hard to bear and! rendered more dif
feult the discharge of the duties mn
cumJbn.t upon me.''
Under a subheadinlg, "lCoope
ase,'' the statement says:
"Other Facts" Presented.
"My reasons for pardoning Col
Cooper have already been given, anc
need no reiteration. It may not be
amiss, however, to present other facts
which may have escaped the publi
in the din and ela.mor which has been
raised. Outside newspapers mnght 'b
exused for mistatements, for their
information is partial, but there is
no palliation for those in our owE
State, who have sough.t to inflame the
passions against an act which I had
the right to perform. These have
said that Col Cooper was my friend
and one of my chief counsellorS. This
is true, and it was true long before
Senator Carm.ack became a candidate
"My relations with Col. Coope'
were close and intimate, and no at
tempt has ever been made to deny co
conceal that fact. At one time so
were the re.a,tions between Col. SCoop.
er and Senattor Carmack. I was in
no way at fault in bringing about a
rpture between them.
I Sought to Avoid Trouble.
"When I learned of probablde trou
ble I tried in every way to avoid it,
iid believed that my efforts and
those of others had cneeeded. When
the killng of Senator Carmack oc
curred I was in' no sense responsible
for it, and have keenly regretted it
from that hour to this, not only on his
own account but because it involved
my f:-iends and gave license to cer
tain men, whose names should be in
famous, to manufacture political
capital and to excite the people at a
time when the State was already dis
turbed and distressed.
"When Col. Cooper and his son
-were tried, I have never believed,
and do not now believe, that their
case received that calm consideration
to which it was entitled, but on the
contrary it was rather a political
trial, yith almost every element pres
ent 0 preclude an administration of
"'Their case was appealed to the
supreme court, and that tribunal di
vided, three being in favor of an
aarinXLes of the ease against CoL.
Cooper, while three were in favor of
reversal as to the son, and two were
in favor of reversal as to both.
"I have :,ot heard the motives of
the court impugned in thus dividing
and disagreevg, but when in the ex
ercise ef a higher and at least as
a duty as any which devolves
upaa the court, I pardon Col. Coop
er, the atmosphere is laden with im
'recations and every bad motive is
at once assigned.
Believes Both Innocent.
"I wish those who are open to
reason to put themselves in my posi
tion and view the facts as they are
and not as distorted imaginations
would have them. Senator Carmack,
according to the testimony, was kill
ed by Robin Cooper, and in my judg
ment any fair interpretation of it
shows that the killing oecurred after
Senator Carmack had fired two shots
from his pistol at the defendant. I
believe the act of Robin Cooper was
in his necessary self-defence, and this
view was. evidently shared by the
majority of the court which reversed
his case. On the other hand, Col.
Cooper was not in any conspiracy to
kill and I do -not re;eall that any of
the justices of the supreme court so
held. If he was not in a conspiracy
to kill, and did not kill, where is i
law or justice which can hold him
guilty of murder; had this been an
ordinary lawsuit, tried in the ordi
nary way, without the settings of
passion and excitement, Col. Cooper
would have been acquitted almost as
a matter of course. Without impug
ning the opinions of others, I think
it was a miscarriage of justice when
he was not acquitted.''
Clinging to a Pleasure.
"Why don't'you buy a home in
stead of paying rent?''
"I'm tempted to," replied Mr.
Flatson, "but I'm having too good a
time riding around with real estate
men, looking at suburban property."
