B—The Uisrale sal of Gifford Pluchot. as chief forester of the United States, by President Taft, late yesterday, has placed the national administration in a most em barrassing position. This is the opin ion of well-known politicians who have watched the progress of the fight be tween Plnchot. the champion of the policies sdvocatod by Roosevelt, and Secretary of the interior Ballinger, whose department has been accused of neglect Ih not protecting the gov ernment against the attempted grab of coal lands in Alaska by “big in teresta.” President Taft realised that the con troversy was the most Important, If not ths most difficult, that has con fronted his administration. lie was impressed keenly that Pinchot» dis missal would increase the fury of the fight the insurgents are waging against the "system’" and might tend to convince the people, especially of ihe great west, who are skeptical re garding the Taft policies, that Roose velt’s work to conserve the natural resources to the masses, had been in \aln. The letter that Pinchot wro f e to Senator DoMiver. upholding L. it. tilavis, and indirectly attacking Bal linger, was accepted by the president as a challenge, however, and the chief -m. > SECRETARY BALLINGER. forester's dismissal followed. Taft held that the dignity of the office he had been chosen to AH was being at tacked and he would be unfaithful to his trust If he did not take decisive action. Pinchot’s Friends Prepare For War.

Job Print laa <v*n« rlibl. tlaoi 1 mafias Ca, 1* Johe R-lt, Pk Ull. ; The reason 1 violate this confidence if as follows: The Ballinger Investigation commit tee (unofficial) has decided to attack the integrity of the forester’* motives. Self interest, it is said, Inspires tfftf man who has promoted the conserva tion movement. lUs reason is really a desire to sell coal. Yep. It's this way. Mr, Plnchot is a man of property. An investigation discloses the fact that some of the Plnchot property la Pocahontas coal mining property. Borne shares of said mining property are held in trust, and Pinchot enjoys the revenues. So, there you are. This explains why Plncitot la opposed to the looting of public coal lands in Alaska and else where. Don’t ycu see? He wants to Mil more of his Pocahontas coal to the navy! If the Guggcnheims coal lands in Aluaka, and make r har bor, and get out the coal and sell it to the fleet, why, piobably the Poca hontas Coal Cos. will go out of busi ness, (!!) the shares which are held in trust for Pinchot will become worth less (!!) and he will have nothing (!!)’ but his other property and his government salaty to live on! Do you get the point? Well, tula is all to be brought out at the investigation. And, while they are About it. it Is to be hoped they will oring out the fact that Plnchot has gone into his own pocket every year to duplicate gov ernment salaries in order to secure the services for the forestry depart ment of young men who would not work for the government at the beg garly government pay; that he contri butes about four times the amount of his salary every year in expediting the government work, and that he trleo to keep this a secret. There is no doubt that Pinchot needs to be investigated. NOW CET BUSY,MR. FACTORYINSPECTOR Violation of Child Labor Law Caused Boy's Death and It's Up To You To Prosecute.

B.—A dis tinguished gathering of politician# from within and without Michigan, and of representative citizens, attend* ed the forty-alxth annual meeting and dinner of the Andrew Jackaon society, of Jackson county, in the Masonic temple, at noon today. Senator Gore, of Oklahoma, whose forceful utter* anccs on public questions have won him a place as one of the foremost politicians of the day; Ex-Mayor Dunne, of Chicago, one of the leading Democrats of the Middle West; Law ton T. Heraans, *whose remarkable run for governor on the Democratic ticket is still fresh in the minds of tho Michigan people; and Hon. Thomas A. Dark worth, were at the dinner, ar ranged by W. W. Todd, president of the society. Senator Gore spoke on “Jacksonian Democracy.” He urged that Demo crats give aid and comfort to Repub lican progressives In Republican dis tricts in their fight “against Speaker Cannon, against his rule, against the tariff and against the ship subsidy.” Mr. Gore continued: “Driven by the lash of publls senti ment, even the stand-patters promised •unequivocally* to revise the tariff.; They kept this pledge with punlo; faith. Hereafter, these promises. -like the notes of the bankrupt, will dimin-i ish in value as they Increase In num-' ber. The tariff has been revised by Its friends. The rates have been re vised upward. Prices have advanced. The cost of living has Increased; It has outrun both wages and salaries. A great • .packing house realises a profit of 36 per cent. Woolen and cot ten mills declare dividends amounting to 66 per cent. The president says the object of revision was not to re duce prices but to prevent an increase. A revelation, this, but even this object has failed.

Thus freed from competition at home and abroad they have waxed omnipotent. We must re move the cause If we would remove the effect.** Mr. Hemans was loudly cheered when he arose to speak on “Michi gan.” “It would be a pleasure to me,” he said, “if the presence of Republicans would enable me to say also, ‘My fel low Republicans,' In opening my re marks.

HEMAXI. PINCHOT ILL SPEAK JIFDETBOIT Deposed Forester Will Forward Con servation Movement in Michigan —Date Not Fixed Yet. Gifford Pinchot, deposed chief of the United States forestry service, Is coming to Detroit to speak In aid of the movement row on foot In Michi gan to .organize a state conservation association as a part of the national conservation movement. The date of )\tg coming Is not announced as yec, but It writU b© soon. It is not unlikely that bftSffcU apeak under the kuspices of Iks Hoard of Commerce. Mr. Pin chers coding to Detroit Is in accord ance with a promise made by tbuse moat interested in the movement at the time the Michigan association was first proposed. Carl E. Schmidt, a member of the state forestry board, who Is one of th<» most active in the promotion ofc the mo veseel Ja Michigan, does not be lieve that the discharge of Pinchot will retard the progress of the movement. “IV-has become an important issue and so widespread that the loss of one men cannot check It,” said he. In Mr. Schmidt’s opinion the conser vation question will be an lmportont factor in the next presidential cam paign. “I do not know the merits of the cases over which this commotion has arisen,” says Alfred Lucking, former member of congress, discussing Pin chot’s dismissal b> the president. “1 do believe, however, that there should be a thorough Investigation. “It seemed to me, when the idea of a congrsatonal Investigation was brought up, that It might be a white wash. The insurgents and democrats have won a victory over Uncle Joe Cannon in regard to the naming of the committee. 1 see. But It 1b a tempor ary victory. J “When the final vote Is taken on the actual selection of the committee, I look to see the speaker win and have the same men chosen whom he would have picked as his committee. There was a hare majority of three for tho insurgents and there were many ab sentees. Next time, every move will be made to get a majority for tho speaker. | “It will be a great pity if there are not on the committee men who will deliberately take Pmchot’s side and bring out every point and fact. The matter should be probed to the bot tom. If the Ouggenhelms were really behind the patenting of those Alaskan coal lands, the discovery of the facts would undoubtedly lead to great de velopments. “It is too early as yet to predict what effect all this will have upon national politics.” A mining engineer now in Detroit, who has been on the western and also in Alaska, where the Ptnchot- Balllnger controversy Is most Intense ly discussed, declarer that the general western sentiment is with Pinchot San Francisco la particularly enthusi astic over tho government forester, ns his reservations of land Include the head waters of tho streams from which the city of the Golden Gate draws Its water supply. “Ballinger has an excellent reputa tion In Seattle.” snys this engineer. * He Is quiet and conservative, but his townsfolk think he Is all right.
