n THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, SATURDAY MORNING-, MARCH 5, 1910. -: J
: - i rcpliod Mr. Smoot, "but wo nssumc H they would havo. H "Not necessarily so," replied Mr. Gallingcr, "if they were aliens, as the H ilcpositors, ninny of 'them, would be." Senator Boot's Stand. H Senator Root tool: the floor to urf,c the j necessity o putting the bill on constltu- H tfonal basis. His Idea was to afford the H people an opportunity to Invest .their H urnlngH, he .said, and at the same lime H put themselves in the position of support- H ln? the government. With the end in view of establishing 1 mich n system, he said, he hnd Introduced his amemimunt providing for the Invcst- H ment of f.tinds In government securities 1 and expressed the opinion that without B some such provision lic bill would be In- 1 The whole scheme, ho snld. was to fl provide for :i sysluin of deposits In the post offices and of the rcdeposlt of the funds In another neighboring bank and of Iceoplnp them there mull returned to the. depositors, the government of the United States merely acting as the agent fl and guaranteeing the deposit. Such a system was widely different from any postal bank or savings-bank that ever had been known, he said, and he did not believe It would commend Itself to the B business community. Tho Sinoot Amendment. On the other hand he thought that J either his amendment or Senator Bur- pj ton's amendment, both of which look to the Investment of tho postal funds In 1 government securities would bring the 1 system within the borrowing power ot 1 the government and furnish a clear con- slltuiloiial basis for legislation. Mr. Smoofs amendment was the farthest e.v tent towards which the committee had felt able to .go in tho direction he had thought necessary. "It Is not satisfactory to mo," he said. 1 "It does not go to the extent that I wish it should, but 1 think it does furnish i probable constitutional basis to the i.aw as it puts tho deposits in such a post tion that the government can cull on them whenever It has real need." j For ths reason, and especially as he considered It Impossible to get anything better. ilr. Hoot said ho would be willing to accept the Smoot provision but he thought It should remain unchanged. Tho Cummins modlllcatlon he pronounced worthless and equivalent to wiping off the statutes any provision for govorn- ment investment as one of tho purposes in Sorious Phase of Case. Mr. Root pointed nut the serious as HHB pect of tho assumption by tho government of obligations which probably would amount to SnOO. 000,000, and which would ho sceurod by no resources except the deposits in the banks. 1 Of those banks, he said there were more than 22.000, stale and national, j Most of them were safe, but some prob- ably were not. Moreover, no reserve was to be required, and it should be borno in mind, he continued, that by no means all of them would be under government or stale supervision, i Mr. Root said it was generally admitted the country's financial system was a misfit, and as a consequence It happened that when the strings of finance were drawn tight the system was sure to be pulled the wrong way. On such occa slons the banks were unable to pay, con fidence was lost and panic ensued. He felt competent, he said, to speak on this subpect, for, either on account of j official or professional connections, he had been in n position of responsibility durlncr each financial depression since Jiat of 1ST3. Sees Danger Ahead. "When such times as those come. where will this bill leave the government of the United States, with Its $500,000.- H 00C of obligations to postal savings bunk I depositors, and without any security ex- ccpt that supplied by tho banks, which HHJ can no more pay the government than they can pay anyone else?" asked Miv Root. "Instead of the bankers and brokers going to the wall, tho treasury of the United States will suspend payment, the credit of the government will be de- stroyed. Then what will become of the Industrial system of the country?" In all past financial trouble the gov- crnment had remained solvent, he snld. It had stood like a rock and there had HHH never been any lack of conlldence since the resumption of specie payments in With tho pending hill adopted he feared the obligation would be greater j than the government could carry. "It Is all very well to encourage thrift," said Mr. Root, "hut there rests upon us a higher duty, and that Is the maintenance of the credit of the coun try, and on my. oath as a senator of the United States I cannot give my assent to a mensure which will Imperil that credit and which would endanger the good name of our country and the perpe tuity of its prosperity. I therefore beg of you not to permit any consideration to lead us awny from the pathway of safety and constitutional right." PEARY'S PROOFS CAUSE OF ROW IN COMMITTEE "WASHINGTON', March 4. Proofs of Commander Ponrj''s discovery of tho i north pole caused a row In the sub-com-mltlee of the house committee on naval affairs today. Two members of the National Geo graphical society appeared before the committee with conies of Peary's proofs to urge the granting of a suitable re ward by congress, hut the committee declined to receive them in conference and has made IL known that unless the Peary proofs nre forthcoming to their full satisfatclon. every bill Introduced to reward tho discoverer will bo pigeon holed. Three members of the committee were in favor of receiving the Peary proofs without making them public. RcprcsOi tative Macon holly objected, nnd, after declaring his position, stalked angrily from the room. Opposed to Star Chamber. "I nm against any legislation In tho dark," Mr. Macon sliarnly told the com ' nilllee. Furthermore, if this committee decides in favor of Peary without ln specllug the full records and making ' them public, I will expose the whole bdsl ness on the floor of the house or in a statement to the press. . If we reward Mr. Peary, the American people have a right to know what we arc rewarding him for." Prof. Gannet of the coast and geodetic stin-cy, and one of the members of the National Geographical society, which ac ceptcd Peary's proofs, told the committee that Mr. Pearj' would not let the com mlttcc have the proofs for public pur poses, because ho wanted them for use in newspaper nnd magazine articles- I Proofs Not Submitted. The professor had with him a copy of the proofs, but declined to submit them, lie told tho committee ho had not the slightest doubt that Peary discovered the pole nnd never had any, cvun before he saw the proofs. Tie submitted lo lengthy questioning and answered many interro gations about the Peary dash for the pole He told of tho tidal observations that Commander Peary had sent back to the department from time to time, which he said were of great A'alue. lie claimed Peary wont ten miles past the pole to mako sure that ho was at tho extreme "lop of tho earth." It was stated by Prof. Gunnot that any j scientist who know his business could remain In Washington and fix up nstro nomlcal observations and Instrument rec ords such as a mnn might make at the pole. These could not be told from the genuine, it was acknowledged. , Representative Alexander of New York was present as the personal representa tive or Mr. Peary and told tho commit tee that the latter would bo glad to have tho committee examine the records, but ho would have to see Mr. Peary ngaln and learn whether ho would consent to have them published.

NO HOPE REMAINS FOR REVOLUTIONISTS WASHINGTON. March 4. Leading citizens and partisans of General Estra da In Blucllclds, Nicaragua, seem to rec ognize that the revolutionary party is doomed to defeat. This was shown In a telegram received at the slate depart ment today from Consul Moffatt at Blueflelds, who stated in effect that the hopelessness of the revolutionary cause was fully recognized -by prominent peo ple there and they strongly hoped that the United States would Intervene. In tho absence of Secretary Knox, none of the officials would predict what steps tho United States might take, but In some quarters the suggestion was made that the United States would con tinue Its policy of non-lntorferencc at least until one party or the other was willing to lay down its arms.

"From Mexico to Cape Horn,' ho said, "there are great nations, that ought to be allied to us. You cannot Imagine the possibility of undo In the Orlont and In reawakened China.

BALLINGER CASE IN WRANGLING STAGE Continued Prom Pago Ono." catcd, Mr. Plnchot said he had never read Mr. B.'illlnger's lettor of protest, and did not know what reasons he gave, Mr. Vertrcos; "Don't you think It would have been only fair to have road It beforo submitting It here with the In ferences that might be drawn from your testimony V Mr. Plnchot: "My knowledge of Mr. Balllngcr's position was lvised on an Intervlow with him in Mr. Garfield s of fice, and I understood It to be hostile to what we have since como to call con servation." . , , ., Mr. Plnchot declared that while the letter of protest had been on file with the committee for some time a regu lation of the committee permitting coun sel onlv to examine tho documents had prevented his reading It. A long discussion ensued as to the modification of tho rule, but tho matter was put over for consideration In execu tive session. . . Attorney Brandcls remarked that the order of tho committee had worked a great hardship on counsel. ,,, When Representative Dcnby stated that ho plainly understood counsel to agree with the committee as to tho propriety of tho course decided upon, Mr. Brandcls said he made his statement with no pur pose of criticising the committee. Attorney Vertroes sought to question tho witness further as to why he had not r;ad the lettor, but was stopped by the committee. ... . Mr Plnchot was asked to read the let ter. "When he had concluded Mr. Ver troes asked: Pinchot's View of Lettor. "Does that letter Indicate hostility to the general policy of conservation? "In my judgment It does." "Point out a single statement to that effect." " . Mr. Plnchot sold it was impossiblo to take Judgment or a single statement. The whole thing had to be taken together. The witness was asked if It was not known when Mr. Garfield withdrew the huge tracts of lands for water power sites that nine-tenths of tho lands so with drawn were not needed and would have to be restored. Mr. Plnchot said he did not know the exact figures. He would not admit that tho large withdrawals wero moro than necessary, however. Tho withdrawals wore made largo be cause there had not been time to mako a proper Investigation. The witness frankly stated that It had been his policy to withdraw lands for for est reservation ranger stations when they were needed for that purpose, but were not withdrawn for prospective power sites. "So that was your policy, and Secretary Garfield's?" "Yes; and President Roosevelt's, and Secretary Wilson's." Mr. Verlrees passed some time with tho witness as to the charge that Mr. Bal llnger had deceived the president regard ing an opinion of the comptroller of the treasury on tho subject of agreement be tween tho forestry service and Interior de partment regarding Indian lands. Taft Might Not Know. Ho brought out tho fact that a copy of tho comptroller's decision referred to Mr. Balllnger had been sent to the presi dent. "There is nothing here to show that tho president read that decision." declared Mr. Plnchot, "and the unavoidable Infer ence Is that Mr. Balllngoi deceived tho president, because tho president said in his letter to Mr. Balllnger on September 13: "Your declination to carry out tho con tract was made necessary by the ruling of the comptroller." The witness contended that the decision sent to the president did not cover the co operative agreement as to Indian lands. Senator Flint asked the witness If tho statement submitted by Mr. Balllnger In regard to tho co-operative agreement was not a fair one and If the papers sub mitted were not all that should have been submitted. "I know of no other documents that should have been sent." "And the statement was a fair one?" "Pretty fair from Mr. Balllngcr's point of view." Attorney Pepper: "But Istherc anything. In the statement to show that the comptroller continued to pass accounts under the agreement." Mr. Plnchot; "No, and I understand that within the last two weeks he has approved some of these accounts." Mr. Vcrtrces In reply to questions from members of tho committee and to clear up a misunderstanding, stated that the co-opcratlvo agreement which Mr. Bal llnger voided was one by which Indian offlco employees had been placed under the absolute control of tho forest ser vice. He said thcro had never been any question as to the reimbursement of funds to ono department from another for services rendered by that department. It was the delegation of authority and control to which Mr. Balllnger called at tention nnd which he believed himself to have been upheld by the comptroller. Lunch recess. Executive Session. At 2 p. m. the commltteo went Into executive session to discuss the pro posed modlllcatlon of tho rule relating to tho handling of the public documents sent In from the various departments. During the recess tho hearing room wns cleared. It hud been the practice of tho women spectators to bring their lunches with them, and they had turned the committee room Into a picnic- place. Many of the spectators resented the rule by which they were deprived of seats and the officers had some difficulty In getting them out. Ihey stood In the marble corridors and munched sandwiches, and when the doors were opened there was a great rush to get inside. After Ihe unreserved chairs were all occupied tho doors were closed in tho faces or fifty or more disappointed women. The public session began at 2:25 o'clock. It was said that an agreement with the attorneys for a more liberal use of tho documents was reached. Again Under Cross-Fire. Resuming the cross-examination, Mr. Vcrtrces called Mr. Pinchot's attention to the fact that in his direct testimony he declared that Special Agent Love had "Indignantly denied" he had clear-listed tho Cunningham claims. "Where did you gut that Information?" asked the attorney. "Mr. Love's letter to Commissioner Dennett. 1 "Doen Love in that lettor 'Indlgnantlv deny anything?" "Ho denies the clear-listing In effect, but not Indignantly. Mr Vertroes spent some time with tho witness on the subject of the sending of forest rangers lo agricultural colleges, seeking to nhow that Mr. Plnchot had adopted this policy without the knowl edge or consont of Secretary Wilson. The men were sent to college In large num bers, their salaries and expenses being paid while there. Uncertain in Answer. Mr. Plnehott said his ' Impression" was that he hnd onc spoken to Secretary Wilson about tho matter, but he was not willing to swear to IL Mr. Vertrcos read a letter addressed by Socrotary Wilson to tho comptroller of tho treasury, Baying he had learned of the plan of sending the rangers to col lege after Mr. Plnchot hnd left tho serv ice. The comptroller held tho plan to be Illegal. Mr. Plnchot said ho thought the sub ject had boon erroneously presented to the comptroller. Thereupon Mr. Vertrees put the whole correspondence between the comptroller and the secretary Into tho records. Democratic members of tho commit tee, taking up tho examination, brought out from the witness the fact that be foro tho policy ot sending the rangers to college hnd been adopted It had boon the practice to havo camp schools from tlmcto time. These schools wore pro vided' for by regulation under tho statute, nnd tho former forester snld he still thought there was warrant, of law for sending the men to college. Ho also thought that If tho forest service had presented tho case from Its point of view tho comptroller would havo so held. Probing Expenditures. Mr. Verlrees read to tho witness a long list of expenditures from tho forest serv ice funds during Mr. Pinchot's regime to cover expenses of officials and employees rent o.ut to lecture to schools, clubs, etc. Ono Item was for $77.31 for tho cx ponse of Brlstow Adams to Chicago and return to address tho women's clubs. The attorney and witness discussed other features of tho forest service, until at last Mr. Plnchot exclaimed: "I find some difficulty In explaining tho forest service lo a man so llttlo Informed about It." , Sticks to Former Story. Mr. Verlrees questioned tho witness regarding his assertion that Mr. Ballln ger, In a report to tho president concern ing the Cunningham coal cases, had boon guilty of falsehoods In three essential particulars. Mr. Plnchot rellcratcd that ho had based his charge upon a copy of a letter of Mr. Balllngcr's former law partner, which had been sent by Mr. Balllnger to the president. Mr. Plnchot cited the letter written by Mr. Balllnger to the president Sep tember 1. In which tho secretary of the Interior stated that a report submitted to him by H. H. Schwarz. chief of the field service, "docs not bear out the as sumption that patents were held up on the protest of Agent Glavls." Mr. Plnchot said that further along Mr. Balllnger clearly showed that clear listing of the claims had been made upon a wlro from Glavls. Adjournment was taken until tomor row morning at 10 o'clock. SHAW SAID TO BE COLLECTING EVIDENCE DENVER, March 4. Tho Post says that A. C. Shaw, ono of the deposed as sistant foresters whoso names figure in the Balllnger Investigation, has recently been In Denver collecting material to bo presented nt the Investigation at Wash ington.

Wash., March 4. United States District Attorney E. E. Todd has boon subpoenaed to testify beforo the Balllnger-Plnchot Investigating commit tee next, week, and will leave for Wash ington tomorrow- Mr. Todd believes that he will bo asked to testify concern ing tho statement made to the committee by Horace T. Jones that ho was Instruct ed by Todd not to lay land fraud charges before the grand jury In Seattle because Federal Judge C. H. Hanford was con stitutionally opposed to trying such cases and to take them direct to the attorney general. Mr. Todd denies having made the statements. BLACK HAND LETTERS FOR JHR1C0 CAHUSO Famous Tenor Now Afraid to Venture From Room With out Bodyguard. NEW YORK, March !.

Mm! ; .; .M, t .j ;, , Coiflrt Is Growing Weary of Indictments Against Heinze ?sTBV YORK, March 4. F. Augustus Helnze's plea of not guilty to tho indict ment found against him by the federal grand jury yesterday was hawked all around the federal building today and not a Judge could be found who would definitely accept It. The tentative plea with leave to withdraw was finally al lowed to stand, with tho understanding that the whole matter would como be fore Judge Holt next Monday. The government has repeatedly had Heinzo indicted on many counts alleging misapplication of the funds of tho Mer cantile National .bank, of which ho was president, but demurrer proceedings have caused the quashing of the Indictments. On new presentments, however, the gov ernment seemed satisfied it had found ground for Indictments that would hold, and these were handed In yesterday. When Heinze appeared today to plead before Judge Hand, his counsel, John B. Stanchfield, suggested that as Judge Hough had heard argument on the pre ceding Indictments, he would bo the proper judge beforo whom to make the present plea. Judgo Hand agreed, and sent the ca.se to Judge Hough. "Vhon that Justice re ceived the lawyers, however, he showed evidences of Impatience. "I've already Intimated. I think," ho said, "that enough Indictments havo been found against this man and I see no reason why I should hear any more arguments." Judge Hough suggested that the case be taken before Judge Holt That jus tice was not sitting today and It looked for a time as If the Heinze plea was go ing begging. Finally It was decided that Judge Holt be asked to hear tho case on Monday next. Judge Hough said ho would sec Judge Holt and acquaint him with the facts about tho preceding In dictments and the disposition of them. Meanwhile the tentative plea was al lowed to stand and Helnze's ball -was continued. Efour Hair is Worth It) Afraid to use hair preparations? Don't know exactly what to do?
