DENIAL OF CLAIM
! Original Letter Firing Gla-
vis Similar in Part to
WASHINGTON, D. C, May 14.
Oscar Lawlor, assistant attorney gon-
oral of tho intorior department, of
' which Richard A. Ballinger is tho head,
did in fact proparo a draft of a letter
addressed to Secrotary Iiallinger and in
such form and phrase that it might havo
beofi adopted vorbatim and signed by
ine prcsiacnt as M. Tatt's exoneration
of the secrotary from tho charges of
L. It. Qlavis, and authorizing the dis
missal of Qlavis from his position of
special agent of tho interior depart
ment. This draft by Mr. Lawlor was deliv
ered this afternoon by tho Ballinger
Pinchot committee and ordorod spread
. upon tho records of the investigation.
Careful comparison of tho Lawlor draft
with tho lotter of the president shows
that in fact, Mr. Taft did adopt practi
cally verbatim, two short paragraphs of
Lawlor 's language.
The substance of the two documents
is otherwise disshnijar.
Capital Is Aroused
Tho subject is on every tonguo to-
night in Washington, whore almost ev
ery man, woman and child is bittorly a
Ballinger or Pinchot partisan. - '
Tho thing camo to head today by tho
publication of a statement attributed
to Fred W. Kerby, ono of tho stenog
raphers in tho oflico of Ballingor, in
which Kerby related at length tho cir
cumstances under which ho alleged tho
Lawlor draft had been prepared. Ker
by asserted further that all preliminary
drafts used in preparation of tho lot
ter was burned in the grato in tho in
terior department at tho suggestion and
under tho supervision of Don A. Cnrr,
Ballinger 's privato secretary.
Almost simultaneously with the pub
lication of the Kerby statement, Wjck
crsham sent to tho Ballingor-Pinchot
committee a, copy of tho Lawlor draft
accompanied by a letter to Chairman
Nelson, in which Wickersham declared
the document had been overlooked in
sending papers requisitioned by tho
committee at the request of Attorney
White House Denies
Tho publication of th0 Kerby state
ment evoked from tho White llouso a
statement declaring thoro was "abso
lutely no foundation for tho statement"
that the president's letter of Soptember
13, 1909, was substantially prepared for
tho president's signature by Assistant
Attorney Gonoral Lawlor, and assert
ing unequivocally that "tho president
dictated his letter, personally, as the
result of his own investigation of flic
records and consideration of tho 'docu
ments and papers in his possession at
tho time and upon the report of the at

a 'common in tho government depart

and documents for tho consideration of
their superiors, and their uso by'them

Attorney Goneral Wickersham de
clared that it is quite obvious that Law
lor did not proparo tho letter signed
by President Taft.
Lawlor Letter Long
Th Lawlor document was very
much larger than tho entire Taft letter
and deals exclusively with tiio Alaskan
coal claims, whilo only about half of
tho Taft letter refers to the Glavis
charges," the balance relating to the
forestry controversy, to which Lawlor
hardly refers at all.
Tho Lawlor draft totals upwards of
8,000 words and that of the president

Attorney Vertrces, counsel for Bal
linger, met tho president at the White
House tonight and held a brief confer
ence with Mr. Taft.
lAttornoy Brandois, counsel for Glavis,
has mado soveral efforts to obtain tho
Lawlor memorandum, and has promised
that it would appear so similar to tho
president's letter of Soptember 13 as to
provo hat it formed the basis of the
president's letter of exoneration.
Attention was called to tho memoran
dum by Mr. Brandois when ho began
tho cross examination of Fred Dennett.

or that ho had ahy conference or cor

contrary Ballingor has always encour

Ho vigorously denied that the secre

and all London are absorbed in prepar
ations fortho'funeral of King Edward,
which will be the most1 imposing core
monial the, British capital has ever wit
nessed. Thirty thousand soldiers will be
brought from Aldorshdt and other mili
tary camps tpjirte the streets Friday
when tho procession passes.
As th,ero is no room to embarrack
them" bver night, tho soldiers will biv
ouac in the parks and streets. The
city will have the appearanco of an
invested city for two days. It is ex
pected that seven hundred thousand
people will pass through Westminister
hall to look upon the coffin. Barriers
are being built by means of which thu
people will be ushered through in four
lines at tho rate of 18,000 per hoifr.
The body of tho late king will bo ex

only the coffin with the official regalia
and heaps of flowers.

riages aro'rehearsing today through the
streets along tho line of march, so as
to avoid possibility of mishap Friday.
Fabulous prices are being asked for
seats or stands along tho line. Twenty,
five dollars is the lowest at-which' it is
possible to get a place. The house
holders overlooking Trafalgar square
have sent a protest to the lord chamber
lain for again changing the lino of
march, which deprives them of tho eag
erly expected profits.
King Georgo being so closely identi
fied with the navy, tho navy contin
gents will take a prominent part in the
ceremonies. Tho bluojackcts will draw
the gun carriage to Windsor, as they did
tho carriage which bore the body of

did so because the horses becamo res
fiye. Soldiers from the king's company
and grenadier guards are keeping watch
over the body in tho throno room.

suspected of the murder of Mrs. Cath
