Motive to Save Life

Statement of Facts
By Distinguished
Arizonan Put
Bristow Out
Special to The News
Congressional Record shows how
vuiiiiicinijr ceuaiur xieury r. Asa
uret, of Arizona, put his accuser to
rout by the completeness of his own
vindication of the charge he used
his senatorial frank to send messages
- which at the usual commercial rate
would have cost Senator Ashurst
hundreds of dollars. The accuser,
was Bristow, of Kansas, alleged!
progressive but in many attributes!
narrow most of the alleged commer
cial telegrams consisted of about 200
and 100 words respectively, and re
ferred to the advisability of holding
an advisory election in Arizona for
federal judge.
The other alleged commercial
telegrams, half a dozen in number,
were relative to the threatened as
sasination of Kenneth Turner, the
distinguished American newspaper
correspondent who was, al the time
imprisoned in Mexico. Explaining
these telegrams Mr. Ashurst said:
"There was a man, a citizen of the
United States, immured in a dun
geon in the City of Mexico. This
man was unlawfully imprisoned.
All civilized Governments must
recognize that the man never should
have been imprisoned. He was the
author, John Kenneth Turner. I
received dispatches from Richard
Harding Davis; I received dispatch
es from Fred I. Warren, and from
other eminent men, imploring me
to intercede with the then Secretary
of State and induce the Secretary
to take some action which might
cause the modus vivendi, or pro
visional government, in Mexico not
to execute that man. I did so. I
caused theSecretary of State to tele
graph to Ambassador Wilson. I
iresume $25 or $30 of the public
unds were exnended in attemntinsr
to save that man's life. I am very
proud of the part I played in that
matter. I should surely do soi
again under like circumstances. All J
energies of our Government should
be exercised in protecting our citi
zens who are improperly used or
maltreated while in foreign coun
tries. If I had my way about if,
every foreign power that maltreats
an American citizen would pay the
damages." "Now Mr. President,
I ask the Senate, Are these tele
grams I have caused to be read pri
vate business."
Mr. OWEN. They are not.
Mr. President, on a recent occas
ion I was obliged to use .the tele
graph because there was a post
master in a town in Arizona who
either willfully or carelessly caused
my mail to be opened. I wired to
the gentlemen with whom I was
communicating that until that post
master was removed I would com
municate no longer with him by
the mail, and the Postmaster Gen
eral has asked for that postmasfer's
Believing profoundly that I have
v'olated no propriety, no privilege,
I shall go forward serenely in the
performance of my public duty. In
conclusion I may be pardoned if I
Bay that when the time conies for
me to retire fiom the Senate, as
-on4t-w.Ul.Bome day, I believe my
friends will be able to point to a

Grand Nephew of the
. Famous Scout in
Comes to Carry Out
Promise to Dying
To search historic Bill Williams
peak, and locate thereon the un
named grave of Captain Bill Wil
liams, famous scout after whom the
mountain is named, is the mission
of E. F. Dellett, grand nephew of
Freemont's pathfinder, who reached
Williams Thursday in accordance
with a promise made to his dying
grand-mother eleven years ago.
Dellett, who is general secretary
of the Pennsylvania Railroad branch ,
of the Y. M. C. A., with headquar-j
ters at Youngwood, Pennsylvania,
just beyond the corporate limits of
Pittsburg, declares he has the word
of the interior department, of Wash
ington, that the remains of the fa
mous scout are interred somewhere
on Bill Williams mountain. Cap
tain Bill Williams was one of the
famous frontiersmen of sixty-five
years ago. t He made many, path
finding trips across the country, all
heading from the Missouri river,
and on the last one, while with
General Freemont's party, died, or
was ambushed and massacreed by
Indians on 'Bill Williams mountain.
"My grand-uncle left home when
a very young man because of a love
affair in which he was crossed by
the opposition of his parents," said
Dellett Thursday afternoon, while
visiting The News office with Bobby
Burns, who will act as Dellett's
guide in his exploration of the fa
mous peak. "Captain Williams'
family were considered wealthy in
their day, and the girl he wished to
marry was very poor. The opposi
tion was so bitter the girl refused to
marry my grand uncle, and he left
for the frontier and never returned
"His favorite sister was my grand
mother, who was Lydia Ann Wil
liams. She died eleven years ago
at the age of eighty-four, a remark
ably preserved woman. Sister Lv-
dia was the only one of the family j
Uncle Bill kept in touch with. She
took the opposition of the family to r
his marriage very much to heart
and mourned his departure and
death until her own end. For'
eleven years I have kept in mind :
my promise to Grandmother to
come out here and try and locate t
the grave of Captain Williams, so it !
might be properly marked. That j
is why I am here now."
Dellett went to the Grand Can von '
Friday and will remain a day or so, j
then return to make a systematic
search of the mountain for the
mound which, it is said, marks the
resting place of the bones of th.e
frontier hero after whom the famous
peak is named.

Special to Tha Kea.
New York, August 7: Ban John-
son, 1'resident of the American
League, and the man above ail oth
ers responsible for the present elt-an
status and prosperity of the greatest
sporting game in the world, and
President Lynch, head of the Na
tional League, have joined hands in
a war to the death upon baseball
gamblers. In this movement they
are nominally supported by the po
lice heads of every big league city
in the country. It is in New York,
however, that the insidious efforts
of the gambling ring which wrecked
the running racing game four years
ago, has been felt most keenly, and
it is here that the most relentless
war is being waged to stamp out
the evil, which if allowed to con
tinue, would threaten the great
American sport which the public
spends millions upon millions year
ly to enjoy because it is believed
clean and manly.
The hundreds of pool rooms which
formerly infested, the metropolis,
had the support of the Tammany
heads in every district in the city.
Now it has been discovered that
pools are being sold on baseball
games, just as formerly they were
sold or the races daily in New York,
Chicago and other cities throughout
the country. Manager M'Graw, of
the New York Giants, prospective
winners of the National League pen
nant, Connie Mack, of the Phila
delphia Athletics, strongly in tee
lead in the American League, Man
ager Callahan, of the Chicago White
Sox, are lending the tremendous
support of their splendid baseball
organizations to aid Johnson and
Lynch in the war to exterminate
the gamblers. It it fully realised
that once; the public lecoines im
bued with the idea that tlieplayens
are tainted with the gambling evil,
: the end of the sport on its present
magnificent basis, is in sight Mil
lions have been expended by the
magnates of' the two big leagues
alone in equipment which would le
worthless, once the public turned
its back upon the sport. Every
magnate realizes this truth, and the
players, themselves, know that the
days of high salaries and hero wor
ship, are being threatened by the
gamblers. ' So all along the line,
from New York to San Francisco,
the war to ' kill ihe sharpers off in
