ciPjert B Towles convicted of forgcrj
ni the March terra of the Supremo Court
or ihe District ISO and sentenced to
the penitcntiarj for c period of seven
jiars was pardoned yesterday by the
President on the recommendation of the
Atiornc General
llr Tovrlcs was well known in busi
ness circles In this city for main jcars
and was closely identified with many n
tcrprises Because of this his tral was
th sensation of the hour while in
bfore the local court
Tbe indictment upon which he was
tried and convicted contained eight
counts District Attornes Gould repre
senting the Government howcer an
nounced at the outlet of the proceeding
that he would not ask for a conviction
on tbe last count
Guilty on Seven Counts
Each count specified a separate of
fense and ho was found guilts on seven
counts Under the law he could have
been sentenced to Imprisonment for a
period of more than fifty 3 ears but Jus
tice Col who Imporcd sentence fixed
the pcnat at seven 3 cars imprisonment
ii the penitentiary at Moundsville V
Va
After his conviction In the criminal
branch of the Supreme Court of tho Dis
trict Mr Towles counsel Messrs
and Woodard took an appeal to
the Court of Appeals for the District
That tribunal not long ago announced
its decision affirming the Judgment of
the lower court
After this his counsel and other
friends made an appeal to the President
for a full pardon In reporting the mat
ter to the President the Attornej Gen
oral stated that the rightfulness of the
conviction cannot be questioned I am
moed however to adIse you to heed
the praser of the great number of sup
pliants In behalf of the petitioner
The specific charges made against Mr
Tonics were that he changed raised and
ohcrwlsc altered certain certain prom
issory notes issued In connection with
the purchase of part of the Gettysburg
battlefield About 100000 of the pur
chase money was paid and the balance
of the money was represented by prom
issory note
It was the purpose cf those interested
In the enterprise to cell the land to the
Government but this was not accom
plished It then becime necessary to
Issue other notes of smaller denomina
tion from time to time to Veep afloat the
original Issue This was mostlj at
tended to by Mr Gilbert B Towles Gen
erally these small notes were Indorsed
by Henry O Towles C C Bryan and
Zcnas C Bobbins
The Forgeries Discovered
During the latter part of 1SO0 parties
holding several of the small notes upon
payment being refused when they be
came due filed suit to recover the
amount It was then first discovered
that the notes were in any way changed
or altered This statement was made 33
a defense to the suits
The matter being called to the atten
tion of the District Attorney an indict
ment charging Gilbert B Towles withi
forgery was reported against him Since
his trial the civil suits on several of
the notes alleged to bae been changed
and altered have been tried in the cir
cuit branches of the Supreme Court of
the District
In each instance except one the last
the suit of Capt Charles B Tanner a
erdlct was returned in favor of tho
defendants In the last trial the Jury
reported against Henry O Towles and
C C Brjan and held that Mr Bobbins
vr not responsible for the pajment of
the note
Thr Tinner case was the most strongly
cintesfed of any of the suits which arose
ever notes issued In connection with
the purchase of the Gettysburg battle
field In that case it was alleged that
tbe Tanner note was made origlnallv
fir 1 1 payable in thirty daj s and
that it was changed to 1010 payable
in ninety dass
U his trial before the Criminal Court
Jr Towles in testlfjing In his own
defense stated that he had changed the
notes In question and contended that he
did so with the full knowledge of the
Indcrsers He further said that he was
often given notes Irdorscd In blank
which he afterwird filled In with the
amount necessary 0 meet the demand
Sometimes he said It was necessary to
change the amount entered and this
was done but It was always with the
fall knowledge of all concerned
Surrendered Himself
When Mr Towles v as Indicted he was
out of the cltj As soon as he was In
formed that there was an indictment
agaiu t him he returned Immediately
and surrendered himself He then gave
bond in the sum of 10000 for his ap
peiranec at trial After his conviction
he a aln pave bond to await th result
of his appeal to the Court of Appeals

that the nev bureau make prelimlnarv

relating to Islands Territories and the
like as the President and heads of the
various departments of tho Government
submit to tho Attorney General for his
opinion and advice ard also legal and
administrative questions presented to
ihe Attorney General In correspondence
with United States district attorney
in Islands end Territories over which
tbey exercise direction and pre
pare answer- to Inquiries which are
proper for him to answer In his ofllciil
eapaelts
It Is erparcnt that the new Bureau of
Insulir and Tcrritoiial Affairs deals
with matters of vital importance to the
rf which depends possibly the peace
01 tne liovernuient with foreign coun
tries
Many Delicate Qjestiens
Many questions of importance are
presented to tho Bureau of Insular and
Territorial Affairs or the Department of
Justice for preliminary examination
at I report
There they are thorouchlv investi
gated and the conclusions reached by
Assistant Attorney ocnciai onirics vv ir c bjrcauhro reported to the Attornv
itussell of West Virginli directs its General who in turn advises the
varied and Important operations Scccnl dent and jjeads of departments as to tho
in authority is Mr lcxinder II ufr icsai aspect or ever case
pmmrs cme the able Assistant United
States District Attorre who but re
cently moved his c k from the City Hall
to the Department of Justice that he
might assume the duties of his new
position
At the title Implies the bureau has to
deal with subjects broad in tcce rd
as varied as the nations and peoples that
have come under the protection and au
thority of tho United States because of
the Spanish American war
from
In order to Intelligent- investieate
these varied and complicated questions
the Bureau cf Insular and Territorial
AiTalrs is building up rapidly a library
sively on the new Islands and like nos
sessions of th United States Maps an I
pamphlets of ever description vhl h
may have any bearing directly or Indi
rectly upon the Philippines Cuba Porto
Rico and any other lands affected one
way or another by recent International
events such as tho Spanish American
war are constantly flowing Into the new
bureau where they arc carefully in
dexed and filed away for reference
Wherever possible those employed at
the bureau make special study of sub
jects contained in these reports and
pamphlets so that the Government al
ready has a corps of trained legal clerks
conversant with matters of every sort In
the various islands of the seas
Library Is Growing
At this time there are eight hundred
books In the library of the Bureau of In
sular and Territorial Affairs and these
works are largely supplemented by mapsj
or every section of the earth The maps
for the most part are hung on the walls
of the rooms occupied the bureau
and reference to them accurate In
formation as to location or distance of
any of our new island possessions can
be had
A majority of these maps are military
maps prepared under direction of the
War Department by army engineers In
the field Naval maps are also Included
In the library and these show the sound
ings of the ocean at various points and
other useful Information The Bureau
has subscribed for and receives news
papers from the Samoan Islands Manila
Honolulu Havana Porto Rico St
Thomas etc
The laws of the various Islands so far
as obtainable have been secured and
i You
T
T
filed away for reference in this now
library and they include not only acts
of recent date originated since Ameri
can occupation of this Island or that
but the old Spanish enactments and
even the tribal regulations of the peo
ples living throughout the seas Thus
ihe Bureau of Insular and Territorial
Affairs con refer readily to the Spanish
laws as they were enforced in Cuba or
the Philippines some fifty years ago
All the official orders of American
commanders whether in the Far East
or any other part of the globe and es
pecially if in supreme temporary com
rr l at any seaport city or town of
the new possessions of the United
States ore on file at the Bureau of In
sular and Territorial Affairs
Thus since civil government was de
clared in the Philippines by executive
order tirder date of April 7 1900 the
icts of the Philippine Commission bet
ter known as the Taft Commission be
cause of its presidency have been duly
preserved and now they form an Im
portant part of the library at the De
partment of Justice
Judge Taft in Charge
The full Instructions given the com
mission by the President are also there
By some of these records it is shown
that th commission began work at Ma

and bridges In the islands A copy of
this measure Is held at the Bureau of
Insular and Territorial Affairs In this
city
Although the United States does not
yet control the Danish Islands and like
possessions In the Pacific the Bureau ot
Insular and Territorial Affairs is look
ing Into the conditions as they exist In
these islanls This fact would seem to
Intimate that the Government mas have
e3es wide open on the subject of even
still greater expansion
On the other hand it may be stated
that information as to these Islands Is
of advantage to the Government from
other standpoints However Information
cf every nature bearing on the Pacific
islands is being carefully preserved
Alaska Is Watched
The vast Territory of Alaska Is also
under the observation of the Bureau of
Insular and Territorial Affairs Maps of
this wild region have been secured and
fchould the disputed question
with Great Britain suddenly assume an
aggravated phase the Government
through the Department ot Justice
would be ready to deal with it as would
best advance the interests of the United
States
No bureau is of more importance than
tbat on Insular affairs It has come to
sta3 The need of such a branch In the
legal department of the Government will
enhance the value of that branch and
time will build up such a division a3
v ill make the Department of Justice
proud As the new- island possessions of
