AS TO A LOBBY
Charge by Senator Clark in
Land Law Repeal Debate
ASKED TO POINT IT OUT
The Post Office Appropriaton Bill Oc
cupied a Part of the Time of the
Senate The Steady Progress of the
Omnibus Statehood Bill.
Washington. March SI. The a:ten
tioii f the senate was divided today
b-t--ii lh bill for the repeal of the
l-wrt land, timber nnd stone and
homestead commutat ion laws and post
4, rlli e appropriation bill.
The repeal bill was taken up oniv for
the purpose of discuson. Mr. Clark
of Wyoming was the principal sieaker.
lie criticised the operation of the forest
renerve law, paying that under It two
thirds of the area of his own county
had been withdrawn from entry.
Till was not the fault of the law,
r.or were f raud i committed under the
desert lind law or timber and stcne
;ut chargeable to the iaw. Moreover, he
did not believe that the fraud3 are a3
extensive as charged. For himself ho
not willing to dmit that the peo
X le of his state are engaged in theft.
He admitted the great benefit of the
hnmectead act in the past, but he con
tended that, unalJed by other laws,
tt.Is could no? be used as a vehicle for
the settlement of the arid region.
Mr. Clark charged the agitation for
the repeal of the land laws to owners
ft lirre bodies of railroad grant lands
' la the west. The effect of the repeal.
he said, would be to take out of the
market every acre of public land. Hut
the public land still would be sold.
Mr. Clark outlined a system of substi
tution by means of forest reserve scrip,
secured through the disposition of rai'.
road lands in the forest reserves for
ether lands, saying that If Gibson's bill
should become a law the value of all
this lar.d would be doubled.
He added: "Never in th history of
land legislation has there been such, a
determined, such a barefaced lobby as
Is behind this legislation, and which
ha been pressing it for the past throe
years. It is no secret that one of the
largest holders of these la:.ds recently
haa boosted at a. public banquet that he
had contributed $jr)'J to the purpo.-ea
of this bill."
Messrs. Gibson and Patterson de
manded the name of the man in ques
ting, hut Mr. Clark declined to give It
to the senate, paying he would not en
ter into personalities of that character
la the svnte, but he would give the
nsnie to any senator who might wish
"I think the name should be given
here, that the man should be known
and be branded throughout the coun
try," tsaid Mr. Patterson. Proceeding,
Mr. Patterson demanded that Mr. Clark
should say who constitutes the lobby
lure in the interest of the repeal bill.
Mr. Clark again declined, but he said
the senator from Colorado knew Who
constituted the lobby.
Mr. Patterson replied promptly:
"When the senator from Wyoming says

Mr. Clark replied that he had meant

sympathy with a movement for the

sympathy was due to the fact that he

With this the incident closed.
The postuffice appropriation bill was
taken up. Mr. McCreary read from
tiie message of the president In regard
to the first assistant postmaster gen
eral's office x and the Indictments
against Heavers, Mac-hen, Tyner and
other officials to show eoi.dlttons in
the department, which he said war
ranted and made necessary 'an investi
gation. "It has been a strange, spectacle,"
said Mr. McCreary, "when members
of the house of representatives, who
have demanded an investigation and
reform have been .compslled to aban
c.en the isquest and themselves have
had to go before an investigating com
mittee." The policy of the republican party
in regard to immgration and statehood
for Arizona, New Mexico and Oklaho
ma was severely criticized by Mc
Creary, who- said that republican
pledges hav been broken. The reasons,
said Mr. McCreary, are that the re
publicans ars getting the ignorant for
eign vote ajid they fear that they will
not get the votes of the nw states
if they are admitted.
SUNDRY CIVIL BILL.
The consideration of the sundry
civil appropriation bill waa concluded
in the house today and the bill was
about to be passed when Mr. Sulzer
forced a roll cail on a motion to com
mit the bill with instructions to strike
out -the paragraph appropriating $136,
GC0 for the. rental of ths New York
customs .house. The vote showed that
a quorum was not present, and an ad-

The right of boards of directors of
state homes for disabled volunteer
! soldiers to-retain certain portions of

A FRIENDLY ARREST.
It Kept Labor Leader Out of Hands
of Telluride Sheriff.
Denver, March 31. -Sheriff Rutan of
Telluride, who came here yesterday
with a warrant for Secretary Haywood
of the Western Federation of Miners,
in which Haywood was charged with
desecrating the flag, returned to Tellu
rite tonight without having performed
his mission.' The service of another
warrant, sworn to In Denver charging
the same offense, before Rutan couM
locate Haywood and the arrest and re
lease of the latter on bond, foiled the
plans of the Telluride sheriff and he
was compelled to return home, empty
handed. He left his warrant with
Chief of Police Armstrong, of Denver,
however, with instructions to arrest
Haywood as soon as the present case
against him is disposed of. The case Is
set for hearing April S.
It is not believed that Haywood will
attempt to give bonds fearing the Tellu
ride warrant would then 'be actionable.
While technically under arrest Hay
wood continues to enjoy his freedom, a
deputy sheriff accompanying him
wherever he goes. A brief censured
dispatch from Telluride tonight speaks
of the inspection of the troops by a
United States army officer today. He
complimented the men highly on their
efficiency and equipment.

Territorial Auditor Christy
and Treasurer Kirkland
Judge Nichols Expects Instructions
Today Directing Him to TaKe
Charge of the Office of Secretary.
Following the confirmation on Wed
nesday afternoon of the nomination of
Territorial Auditor Nichols, to be sec
retary cf Arizona there was a shift
ing about in the capitol building. As
had been predicted by the Republican
Major I. M. Christy was appointed by
Governor ltrodie to be territorial audi
tor and E.- E. Kirkland clerk of the
board of contnl, was appointed treas
urer. Though no official notification of
the confirmation of his appointment
had reac hed Judge Nichols he . had
tendered his -reigntk)n . which had
Auditor Christy and Treasurer Kirk
land had not been taken by surprise.
They had their bonds ready. They
wera approved and the oath of office
was administered to them.
No word came to Secretary Nichols
from Washington yesterday afternoon
or last night regarding his office. He
didnot expect any information until
today. His nomination was acted up
on by the senate late in the afternoon
of Wednesday and the pajers In his
case woul"d have to be sent back to
the Interior department before formal
notification of his confirmation could
be made. His bond has not yet been
filed, but it i supposed that instruc
tions to take charge of the office will
be forwarded today and that in the
meantime the bond may be forwarded
and acted upon afterward. That
course was followed at the time of the
succession cf Secretary Stoddard to
Today is, by the way, the date when
the resignation of Mr. Stoddard takes
effect. Just what will Tie done in the
even that no instructions are received
by Mr. Nichols today has not been tie
elded upon by either Mr. Stoddard cr
Mr. Nichols. Neither will be in the
federal part of the office. So far as
the territorial business is concerned
that can be attended to by . Assistant
Secretary Teasley, but there will be no
one competent to act as disbursing
agent for the government. That is
one view of it. Another is that Mr.
Stoddard will be the secretary until his
successor has qualified notwithstand
ing the date fixed for his resignation
to take effect.
Judge Nichols was asked who would
be his assistant secretary. He said
that, he had not determined that and
had hardly thought of it. The vacant
clerkship of the board of control, caus
ed by the appointment of Mr. Kirk
land to be treasurer, has not been filled
and no intimation was given out at
the office of the governor regarding the
probable appointee. This office pays
$75 a month. .
The salary of the treasurer fixed by
tha last legislature is $2,500 a year.
That of the territorial auditor Is $200
a month, but in addition there are the
fees of the auditor acting as bank ex
aminer which will amount to about
$1,500 a year. .
An Indictment of the Party by a St.
Louis Grand Jury.
St. Louis, March 31. The grand jury
called some time ago to investigate
alleged assaults perpetrated upon vot
ers during the democratic primaries
on March 12, made a report today, re
turning indictments against, seventeen
policemen and John Lavin, a central
committeeman charging them with
failing to qusll disturbances. The re-
port also Beverly criticizes Governor
Dockery for "allowing the St. Louis
police department to be used as a
political machine. ; j
The report Is couched in temperate
language. The members of the grand,
jury assert in their rerort.that what j
they say is not actuated by partisan-
ship and they call attention to the fact
that eleven of their number are demo
crats and one . is "a republican. The
state administration is democratic.
The report then says that In a partial
Investigation cf the election outrages
In the democratic primaries" It was
found that some of the most prominent
men In St. Louis were slugged and
beaten by "Indians" in the presence of
the police, who did nothing to protect
them; that these citizens were subject
ed to this brutal treatment when they
made an effort to peacefully exercise
their right to vote.
