FACES NEW INQUIRY
Another Investigation of Department
of Agriculture to be Made.
Washington, Feb. 6.-Another inves
tigation of the department of agricul
ture, involving orders of Secretary
Wilson and the McCabe-Wiley contro
versy and embracing charges of sup
pressed reports and influence of land
speculators over government officials
is to be instituted by the house con
mittee on expenditures in .he agri
Circumstances, smouldering for
months, relating to exploitations of
lorida Everglade lands, millions of
res of which have been sold
roughout the country by syndicates
the past few years, burst into a
flame before the committee today, fol
lowing the summary dismissal from
government service by Secretary Wil
son last Saturday of C. G. Elliott,
chief engineer of the drainage divis
ion, of the department, and A. D.
Moorehouse, assistant engineer, and
the suspension of F. E. Singleton, as
assistant, on a technical charge of
transference of public funds.
Influenced by Promoter.
Representatives Frank Clark, of
Florida, and E. R. Batherrick, of Ohio,
who have instigated the investigation,
charged before the congressional
committee today that officials of the
department of agriculture had been
influenced by Florida Ev'erglade land
promoters in the suppression of a re
port on the condition of the lands
made by the drainage department;
that Chief Engineer Elliott was threat
ed by agents of the land promoters
'less he would revise a circular let
to the public, which did not con
audatory references to the lands
ere selling, and that upon his
1 the circular and a subsequent
more detailed report were suppressed
by the order of Secretary Wilson and
that later Engineer Elliott and Moore
house were removed from office.
McCabe Denies It.
Solicitor McCabe, who was called
before the house committee, denied
today that the disissal of the depart
ment officials was in any way caused
by the Florida land case and declared
that the action was taken following
charges that the dismissed men had
misapplied.funds. All the papers re
lating to this feature of the case were
turned over to the departmerit of jus
tice Thursday for possible prosecution.
In this connection it is charged by
Representative Clark that Elliott was
.assured that there would be no prose
cutioni of the charge against him if
he would "keep still" about the ac
tions in the department on the Flor
ida land investigation.
Representatives Clark and Bathrick
.asserted today that they would show
before the committee that the order
<iismissing the men did not come from
.Secretary Wilson until after it had
become certain that the house comn
mittee was planning to make an in
quiry and Representative Bathrick had
Sappeared before the committee in
executive session last Saturday. A
'few hours later the letters were issued
dismissing two drainage officials and
Author of Charges.
The charges involving the dismiss
ed men were reported to have been
made to Solicitor McCa.be recently by
J. 0. Wright, a former subordinate of
Elliott, but at present chief engineer
~of the board of trustees of the internal
improvement fund of the State of Flor
ida. Wright made a favorable report
upon the Evergiade lands and soon
afterward resigned from office to en

Solicitor McCabe told the committet.
that all reports and papers bearin:
on the Everglades case had been col
lected .by the department and would
be turned over to the committee for
The department, he said, welcomed
the investigation. He declared fur
ther that the reason Secretary Wil
-son had ordered that the report on
the Everglades be not printed was
that the engineers in the drainage de
partment were so at variance in the
matter. When a sked why a new in
vestigation was not instituted in view
of this situation and in view of the
public demand for information, Mr.
McCabe told the committee that the
