As soon as the president's special !
message had been read in the house I
jvriday, chairman Dalzeli, of the rules
committee, brought in a privileged res
olution providing for the immediate
consideration of the joint investigation
resolution which was Introduced sev
eral days ago by repx esentative Hum
phrey, of Washington.
Dalzeli explained that after Its adop
tion by the senate and its signature bv
the president, the joint resolution will
become a law, giving the investigating
committe power to sxfmmon witnesses
and compel them to testify.
An agreement to limit the debate to
three hours with tne privilege of of
fering amendments being reached, Mr.
Fitzgerald; t New York, opened the
struggle. '"".. ,
Fitzgerald offered? two amendments
to tne pending ""'resolution, aimed to
eliminate the forest bureau from the
Representative Norris, of Nebraska,

such an important matter that he be

picked up the gage of battle thrown
down by Mr. Pinchot through the hand

"The White House. Vf'ashlngton,
"January 7, 1910.
"The secretary of agriculture informs
me that on the 2Sth of December j-our
associate forester, Mr. Price, went to
him and "proposed to resign on the
ground that he had been engaged with
Mr. Shaw, assistant law officer, in Instigating-
the publication in various
newspapers and magazines of articles
attacking the good' name of secretary
Ballinger and charging the Interior de
partment and the laid office with cor
ruption. The, secretary thereupon wrote
a note to you under date of December
29 asking for your recomnendation in
the' premises. You did not answer, but
on January 4 you had a conversation
with him in which you said you wished
to make a statement which should be
read in the senate at the same time as
my message transmitting the record in
the Glavis case and that you thought
ycu could induce senator Dolliver to in
troduce the statement for you.
"The secretary advised against such
a course; but masked you' for a "recom
mendation regarding Price's resigna
tion that he might bring the matter to
me, to whom, he told you, it must ulti- I
v Insubordination, j
"Without further conference with the
secretary and before making a report
to him you succeeded in making public. I
by having it read in the senate, a letter '
stating that you had sufficiently dis-'
ciplined Messrs. Price and Shaw bv
reprimanding them and that you would ,
recommend that no further punishment I
was required. You did this before that j
recommendation was submitted to the
secretary and me. whose power and
duty it was to determine from Price's !
admission what action should be taken !
on h's resignation. I
"Tn order to understand the full pur- j
port of your letter In which vou ad- I

should be said that the gravamen ofl
tne javi cnarges was that secretary
Ballinger and all others were affected
by a corrupt wish to patent the 33 so
called Cunningham claims uDon coal
lands in Alaska: that whether these i
claims were irauauient or not remained
to be decided upon the evidence after
both the Un-tteO States and the 'claim
ants had been heard; that every pat
ent as an executive act Is completely
within the jurisdiction of the president
who may order it withheld that he him
self may examine the evidence on the
validity of the claim.
"These facts understood, the plain in
timations in your letter are, first, thai
I had reached a wrong conclusion as to j
the good faith of secretary Ballinger j
and the officers of the land office,, al- j
though you and your subordinates had j
only seen the evidence of Glavis, the I
accuser, and had never seen or read !
the evidence of those accused or the j
records that they disclosed; and. sec-
ond. that under these circumstances,
without the exploitation by Messrs. i
Shaw and Price in the daily, weekly i
and monthly press, of the charges of !
Glavis, the administration, including J
the president and the officers of the
interior department a-nd land office.
would have allowed certain fraudulent '
claims to be patented on coal lands in t
Alaska, altlvought the matter had been
specifically brought to che attention pf
the president by the Glavis charges.'
"You solicited the opportunity to
make such a declaration in congress
for the purpose of offsetting if possible
in the public mind, the president's con
cern in the Glavis case, supported by
the opinion of the attorney general and
given after a full examination by both
of the evidence adduced by the ac-
cuser and'the evidence on behalf of the
accused which, latter evidence you and
your subordinates never had seen.
"You did this against the advice from
the secretary of agriculture, without
notifying him that you intended so to
do and without conferring jtvlth me
"Your letter was in effect an Improp
ex appeal to congress and the public to
excuse in advance the guilt of your
subordinates before T could act and r
against my decision in the Glavis case.
"I should be glad to regard what has
happened only as a personal reflection
o that I could pass it over and take '
no official cognizance of it. But, other
and higher considerations must gov
ern me. When the people of the United
States elected me president, they placed
me in an office of the highest dignity
and charged me with the duty of .main
taining that dignity, and proper respect
for -the office on the part of my su
bordinates. Moreover if T were to pass
over th'is matter in silence, it would be
most demoralizing to the discipline of
the executive branch of the government-
"By your own conduct you have de
stroyed your usefulness as a helpful
subordinate of the government and it
therefore now becomes my duty to di
rect the secretary of agriculture to re
move' j'ou from your office as forester.
