The Sherman Land Grab Exposure.
In attacking James S. Sherman, re
publican nominee for vice president
the New York World declares Mr.
Sherman was one of a coterie planning
a gigantic fraud in New Mexican
lands. It failed, through being
blocked in the senate.
"This is the story of Edmund Burke,
an attorney of Los Angeles, Cal., and
a foimer business partner of James
S. Sherman," says the report printed
In the . World, "in the New Mexico
Lumber and. Development company, a
$3,000,000 concern incorporated in
1901 by James S. Sherman of Utica.
N. Y.; E. L. Philip of Milwaukee, Ed
mund: Burke and Henry. Casson, the
present sergeant-at-arms of the house
The story, says the World, is pre
sented precisely as it was dictated
by Mr. Burke at Denver a few weeks
ago ; in the presence of Thomas M.
Patterson, a former United States sen
ator; former Governor Osborne of
Wyoming and .W. J. Thomas, an at
torney, representing Mr. Burke.
The World states it has investigated
the facts set forth by Mr. Burke's
letter and the character and standing
of. -the man from whom it obtained
the documents, and feels justified in
presenting the history of the New
Mexico Lumber and Development com
pany for the instruction of the people
or the United. States. ..
The facts as set forth in the state
ment of Mr. Burke are, in brief, as
lollows: I .t
-VI. That In 1901 James S. Sherman,
the present republican candidate for
vice president; E. L. Philip, a legisla
tive agent for the brewery interests
of Milwaukee ' Henry Casson, the
sergeant-at-arms of the present house! him, reduced the salaries of all the
of representatives, , and - Mr. Burke 1 men employed upon that road, alleg
formed a company known as the New ing this was necessary to make the
Mexico, uimoer.and Development com-
"2. That the articles of incorpora-
tfon were filed in the territory of Ari
zona in order, according to Mr. Burke,
'to secure secrecy.
That Mr. Burke, as the author-
izel agent of the company, entered
into an arrangement with the mem-
bers of the land board of the- territory I
of New Mexico to acquire certain ter
ritorial timber lands in that territory
at a cost of about one-tenth of their
"4. That Mr. Burke went to New
for $500 and to Governor Otero of New
Mexicp a draft for $5,000, which went
through the bank of Pueblo, Colo.
These officials constituted the land
board of the territory. ' . -"5.
That the land -board in return
gave to the Xew. Mexico Lumber and
Development company an option on
an extensive tract of land, embracing
more than 150,000 acres, at the price
of $3 an acre.
"C. That the land board of the terri
tory printed for the company several
thousand blank applications, ad
dressed to the laud board, each ask
ing for a grant of 1C0 acres, the limit
allowed an individual, and that on the
back of these applications was printed
a power of attorney from the com
pany." And since this revelation the repub
lican national committee has mad?
bold effort to print a denial from
Burke, but it was so unreliable in its
character that the Associated Press
has so far declined to handle it or
transmit it to its papers, although
other news agencies in the control of
the republican national committee
have endeavored to give it circulation.

Chicago Journal: Another frenzied
appeal from the White house to the
labor vote. Repeated assurance that
Taft is the only real friend labor ever
had, ever will have, or ever can have,
but not a word about the real issues
which the public is anxious to hear the
details of. - 1
Willard R. Green, engineer, railroad
builder and a man of high reputation,
makes the straight charge that Wil
liam Howard Taft used his power as
governor general of the Philippines to
control railway contracts for the ben
efit of Henry Taft, Elihu Root and
Wayne Mac Veagh, through whom, by
way of Speyer & Co., they were turned
over to a favored corporation. Mr.
ureen says specifications were so
drawn as to bar all competitors, and
Taft flatly refused to open the bidding
to other concerns.
Edmund Burke of Los Angeles, for
merly associated in business with
James S. Sherman, the candidate for
vice president, tells of the New Mexico
Lumber & Development company, of
which Mr. Sherman was one of the or
ganizers and principal counsel. Burke
says he nersonally went to New Mex
jCO ani paid $6,000 to the members of
the territorial land board. Following
these bribes the board gave Mr. Sher
man's company an option on more than
150.000 acres at $3 an acre."
The law only allowed 160 acres to
each applicant for a grant, so they pre
pared dummy blanks, endorsed over to
the company. This swindling scheme
was finally deemed too dangerous, says
Mr. Burke, and Congressman Sherman
drew up house bill No. 11.0C2, to obtain
the coveted land under federal grant.
This neat little steal was detected by
Senator Thomas M. Patterson of Col
orado, who killed the bill in the sen-
ar Mr. Burke naively adds, "Further
steps to carry out tne purposeg of the,
company were abandoned because of
cis J. Heney, the prosecutors for the
government in investigating land and
timber frauds in the west."
Mr. Roosevelt is wasting time in il
losical wails tr the wnrkinsr man not
f to desert the g. o. p. in its dire ex-1
tremity. If he really wishes to elect
Taft, let him open, the Panama canal
books, clean up the Philippine "mess
and give us the truth about Sherman
and the New Mexico land steal.
That would be sure' evidence of good
faith which is now lacking.
Chicago Labor Leader fbr Bryan.
John J. Fitzpatrick, president of the
Chicaeo Federation of r.ahor hps
come out squarely for William Jen
nings Bryan. He declares that all
unionists should vote the democratic
ticket. His reasons for his attitude
in the political situation follow:
"I have looked calmly upon the po
litical situation of this campaign. I
can come to but one conclusion, and
that is that unionists everywhere
should vote for " William Jennings
"I do not question the integrity and
honesty of William H. Taft, and I do

labor. I do say he is not a friend of
"His very environments have been
such that he can never be a friend of
unionists. His attitude " when on the
bench has clearly shown ' this. On.
the other hand, the environments of
Bryan have made him a most stanch
inena or tne people who work.. He
is the commoner that we know him as.
raft s own record while on the
bench is enough to convince all union
ists they should not vote'for him.
When judge in Ohio he had occasion
to appoint a receiver for a certain
railroad. This receiver, annointed bv
road profitable. The corporation in!
I the case was the Cincinnati, New Or-
leans . & Texas Pacific railway. Em-
ployes of the road applied to Judge
Taft to have , the order of reduction
in wages rescinded. . -. , . -
"I will now quote from Judge Taft's
decision in that case the workmen
brought to him:
"They (the worklngmeu) are now
to be put in the attitude of either ac-
cepting or rejecting the proposition
of the receiver who employed them at
the reduced wages. If they are not
content with the wages they are not
compelled ? to accept them and may
retire from the employment. They
have no standing in this court to call
for an adjudication of any rights.'
"Further on in his decision judge
Taft held in effect that the preserva
tion of the property and its adminis
tration in the interests of those who
owned it was entitled to first con
sideration. "The wages were cut. The men
working only half time and they
thought that that was a sufficient re
duction in their income.
"Two other similar cases were tried
before Circuit. Court Judges Caldwell
and Sanborn of Colorado and in both
of these it was held the receiver had
no power to reduce tne. wages of the
men. . .."-
"This alone it would seem would
be enough to show' that Taft's attitude
towaid union labor and all the men
who work is not friendly.
"The attitude of this administration
has not been friendly to labor. We
have known Taft as the injunction
judge for a long while. We know
him now as the personal agent of
President Roosevelt, a man who is
supposed to carry out the policies of
President Roosevelt. It is reasonable,
therefore, to suppose that he played
a part in the Danbury ''hatters' case.
which involved the hatters' union.
"Mr. Taft found that his injunctions
were ineffective. -They did not ac
complish the purpose he Intended
they should. Some other methods to
defeat the unionists - were necessary
in the eyes of the present administra
tion. Therefore the hatters' union
was brought into court and was de
cided, according to the provisions of
the Sherman anti-trust law, to be au
"Anyone who has studied this situa
tion can come to but one conclusion,
and that is that Taft was a party in
this conspiracy against union labor.
"On the other hand, Bryan lyis
shown in his whole career that he is '
friend to the men who toil. When in
congress he supported every bill that
favored union labor and has always
stoo.l out prominently as the foe of in
"His attitude since that time, and
the platform upon which he is now
running for the presidency of the
United States, show that he has not
changed his views. The interests of
union labor are with the democratic
party this year,
"I predict that the great majority
of unionists are with Bryan, as- the
vote on election day will prove." -
