I FIERCE ATTACK ON FORESTRY BUREAU Continued from Page One. j is a moral or any other claim upon ni ! to postpone the use of what nature lias given me." Mr. Teller insisted that the predic tions concerning the exhaustion of the cos s,npplv aTe very far from correct. Colorado alone, ho said, could supply the world wuh coal for 150 or 200 years. Mr. Smoot defended ihe service, de claring the cost of all lectures before various societies last year had been only S5022. The lectures he regarded as entirely -justified. "Every time." ho said, "information .e given "abovtt lengthening- the life of a railroad tie the American people are benefited." Mr. Smoot took up cases cited in the senate to show injustice to settlers who had disposed of their land within forest reserves, and in so doing bocame in volved in a controversy with Senators Clark. Carter and others, j Mr. Smoot said tho forestry service fire patrol system had saved $H4,000,000 worth of timber. Senator Clark. (Wyoming) drclarod that Mr. Smoot 'a system of estimating fire losses was fallacious, as it. waa based on the idea that a fire once started would burn until extinguished by a forester, whereas many of the fires, fven in the reserves. ;irc stopped by seta tiers. Senator Flint (California) asserted that in his state alone the louses in the past year from forest fires would have amounted to $20,000,000 if it had not I been for the exertions of tho foresters.

ONE TEAR 11 PRISON FOR MARGARET TEAL Well-Known Woman of Now York Who Figured in Gould Scandal Sentenced. NEW YORK, Feb. 26. Mrs. Mar garet Teal, wife of Benjamin Teal, one of the best known theatrical managers in this country, was today convicted of attempted 'subornation of perjury in the divorce case of Ileleu Kolloy Gould ngainst J. Gould. Mrs. Teal was sentenced to servo ouo year in the peni tcntinry on Blackwolls Island. As the verdict of tho jury was pro nounced, Mrs. Teal sank to her kuoes and wns lifted to n chair by attend ant?. She then buriod her face in her muff. Ono of tho jurors was weeping as the verdict was rendered and the sentence imposed. All tho jurors signed a recommendation for clomoncy. Judge Foster, in sentencing Mrs. Teal, said ho would not add to her suffering by referring to hev record, with which ho said the district attor noy had acquainted him. Tho judge said that ho had been greatly impressed bv the touching bearing ot Mr. Teal, who had sat beside his wife through out tho trial. Counsel for Mrs. Teal said he would apply for a certificate of roasonablo doubt and endeavor to obtain her freedom on bail. "This has been the niistnko oV a garrulous woman and lacks the inter est that usually appears in cases of this kind." said the counsel. Mrs. Tenl was indicted last 3'oar jointly with Mrs. Julia Fleming (or Julia McCabo) and Harry S. Mous ley, a private detective. Thoy were charged with attempting by offers of money to induce Mabel McCnusHn, a milliner's apprentice, to givo fnfao evi dence against Frank Uould in the divorce case. Mrs. Fleming and Mouslcy turned state's evidence. A pathetic featuro of Mrs. Teal's case is that she is tho mother of a child but sixteen months old. STEPHENSON IKffiG CLAIM Of ELECTION Fad That Ho Received Majority on Separate Ballot Basis of j Contention. MADISON, Wis., Fob. 26. Whilo tho Wisconsin legislature continue to ballot for United States senator in joint assom blv dailv, the supporters of Senator Is aac Stephenson contend that Stephenson was elected I'nitod States senator on separate ballot on January 26. when ho received a majority of votes cast in each branch of' the legislature. Taking tho staud that Stephenson was olected on separate ballot, h:s supporters secured a certificate o election signed bv Governor Davidson and countor sfgned bv Secretary of State Jamo3 A. Frear. arid last night United States Dis trict Attorney W. G. Wheeler left lor Washington with this certificate. Tho separate ballot gave Stephenson sixty votes in tho assembly, a clear ma jority, and twelve of tlio seventeen votes cast in tho senato, sixteen sena tors being present and voting "pres ent." Lieutenaut Governor John Strange, who presides over the joint assembly when a ballot for United States sqnator is taken, he steadfastly refused from time to timo to entertain a motion that Stephenson was elected on separate bal: : lot. each time ruling tho motion out ot i order and ordering the clerk to call tho roll. Since the balloting m joint session began Senator Stephenson has fnilod to secure a majority. Tt is not believed in tho senate that presentation of a certificate merely cit ing the action of tho houses of-the Wis consin legislature in casting each a majority vote for Senator Stephenson would entitle him to a seat in the sen ate without investigation. If tho gov ernor of Wisconsin has attached his namo to a document certifying Mr. Ste phenson's election, it is probablo that Mr. Stephenson will be seated' upon its presentation.
