; 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.

Can’t Be Paid Out of Trust Funds of
Hude-Vier Estate.
A motion by Attorneys May & Ding
man to be paid $2,800 fees out of the
trust funds of the estate of the late
Melinda Hude-Vier, was denied by
Judge Hosnter, Saturday morning.
The services for which the fees are
asked were rendered to Marcel Hude
in opposing the move of his wife to
have him declared a spendthrift.
The motlort was opposed by the Se
curity Trust Cos., trustees of the es
tate. Judge Hoßmer stated that while
he thought the services were earned
In legitimate practice, and should be
paid, he could see no way to take tbo
money fro mthe trust funds.
Hude was left about $30,000, but the
will provides that he Is to receive
only S6OO a year until he is 50 years
of age. Recently his wife tried to
have a guardian appointed on the
ground that he is a spendthrift. She
testified that he spent both his wages
and his allowance from the state, leav
ing her without support.

Great Democratic Bally in Jackson
—Senator Gore Speaks on
Tariff Question.
JACKSON. Mich.. Jan. 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.
Buy Cheaper Abroad.
“The consumer pays 100 per cent
duty on his clothes. 161 per cent on
his blankets, pays more for American
goods than the foreigner, and thin

campaign book. Is to the glory and
honor of the American manufacturer.
Protective duties have shielded the
trusts against foreign competition.
Rebates have shielded them against
domestic competition. Thus freed from
competition at home and abroad they
have waxed omnipotent. We must re
move the cause If we would remove
the effect.**

when he arose to speak on “Michi
“It would be a pleasure to me,” he
said, “if the presence of Republicans
would enable me to say also, ‘My fel
