THE YACHT OF Enters Into Proceedings of the Lower House UN INQUIRING SOUTHERNER Would Learn Whether the Revenue Cutter Service Would Have Been So Alert to Save a Less Dis tinguished Citizen. Washington. Jan. 6. A vigorous de-j ren?c or tne revenue cutter service was made In the house today by Represen tative Mann of Illinois, when a reso lution calling for information from th treasury department as to what amount had been spent by that service in the effort to locate John Jacob Astor's yacht Nourmnhal, reported lost In West Indian waters several weeks ago, was reported by the committee on ex penditures of the treasury department. "This resolution Is a reflection n the cutter service, v declared Mr. Mann, hotly. "I think the gentleman is most un kind," interjei"ted Mr. Harwick of Georgia. thfiuhor of the resolution. "I merely seek information as to whether such aid as was rendered to the Nourmahal was rendered to all alike, rich and poor, influential and not influential. "If it had not been a rich man's yacht the resolution never would have tK-ea offered," replied Mr. Mann. "The revenue cutter service went to the as sistance of IDS vessels during the last fiscal year and saved many lives. It1 did not go to-aid the Nourmahal par ticularly to save -a rich man but tj reuue fifty persons aboard that boat who were not rich men." Kxr.laining that thti committee Iiad faw.-rably reported the resolution that the revenue culler service might havcj the opportunity to vindicate itself.l Representative Hill of Connecticut! said. "If no one had been on that yachtl hut John Jacob Astor it was the duty! of the revenue cutter service to send a vessel to his assistance. He is deserv-i ing of much from the people of the I'niteC Slates. At the outbreak of the late war he offered this same yacht, worth several hundred thousand dol lars, to the government, and he or-,: ganized and equipped the Astor bat tery, which afterward rendered great service in the Philippines." Mr. Hill then related how President Roosevelt had sent a battleship to a remote Island in the south Pacific in search of a shipwrecked American sea man named Ooff. "And he did no more than right." said Mr. Hill. "That's what the reve nue cutters and naval vessels are for." ' The resolution was adopted. SHIP SUBSIDY BILL. Washington. Jan.

Wellington. Jan. fi.--The Ballinger Pinchot controversy was made doubly intense today by' the reading in the senate of a letter addressed by Mr. Pinchot to Senator Dolliver, In which the course of I.. R. ",1a vis. with tl.e assistance of Price and Shaw of, the bureau of forestry, is warmly ap proved. In the communication the chief fon-sler not only upheld the criticisms of Mr. Hallingcr. but sug gested that the president himself had lH-en mistaken in the facts when he removed Glavis front the public serv ice. 1'im hot's letter called Senator Hale to his feet with a severe rebuke of the chief forester for having ignored the recent order of the president, directing that no subordinate officer give . information concerning the af fairs of the government except to his superior officers. He also suggested that the adoption of this course tend ed to forestall the projudice of public opinion in relation to the Hailing, r Pinchot controversy. v Preceding . this incident. Senator Jones' Joint resolution for the investi gation of the interior department ami the forestry bureau was referred to the committee on public lands, but (he reference was not made until after much discussion of a resolution by Senator Newlands instructing the committee on public lunds to report within two weeks a hill putting into effect - Mr. Itallingcrx recommenda tions for an annual report on the conservation of natural resources. ;,In the senate I'incliols letter caused a sensation. In addressing thi; letter to Mr. Dolliver, Pinchot indicated that it bad been yritten at the request of the Iowa senator, but was addressed to him as chairman of the committee on ngriculture, thus making it an official document. It said that Price and Shaw had. prepared the official .report which he was transmitting to the secretary of agriculture. ' "This report shows that Price and Shnw made public certain informa tion regarding the so-called Cunning ham claims for coal lands in Alaska," said Pinchot. "The effect of the pub lication was' to direct critical public attention to the action of the inte rior department. "It shows that they countenanced the publication by L. R. Glavis of certain facts concerning the claims after he had been dismissed from of fice, and that in other ways they had endeavored to disect"- public at tention to the imminent danger of the Alaska coal fields, until govern ment ownership might puss forever into private hands, with little or no compensation to the public." This Information. Pinchot adds, was of a nature that it was proper to be'fering from "megalomania" or that his made public, "unless there are secrets which the people of the L nited States are not entitled to know concerning the source, nature and progress of claims' made ror portions of the public lands.", actually sain or wrote on mis or any "Rumors," said Pinchot, "that Glavis. otnr subject." report to the president was prepared' o in or by the forest service were in- THE DEADLY PTOMAINES, correct.

GOIICEIIIIG REGULARITY Speaker Cannon Comments on The Insurgent Course KEED , OF CO-OPERATION He Advises That Those Who Cannot Stand De- - feat Within Party Or ganisation Had Better Affiliate With Democrats Washington. Jan. J. Speaker Can non called at the White House today and had a few minutes' talk with President Taft. On h:s way out the speaker made a few remarks concern ing the doctrine of party regularity. "My test of regularity in politics, in the church, in finance or in the fami ly." he said, "is co-operation and harmony. I am a great believer in the caucus, the wicked caucus. Get to gether and fight out your differences there, and if you are licked come back and fight again. "We can't all have our way In this world. We don't have our way no matter how big or how high we may be. The manly man gives and takes, fights or. yields as he thinks best for his cause. I haven't much patience with these men who are wiser than all the other fellows put together and whose views are unchangeable. "I always feel that at man of that sort has no business in an organization. If he cannot fight it out in the party ranks and yield if he is beaten, then he had better get out and Join the ene my, or. better still, form an organiza tion of his own. "But all of this is chestnutty, boys," continued the speaker;' the worst sort of chestnuts; but I want it understood I did not mention this subject to the president or he to me. 1 am not try ing to run this business." " INSURGENT VISION. Of an Alliance Between President and Speaker. Washington. Jan. 6. "The insurgents I of the house are not Intimidated by the action of the administration In with holding patronage from them, and are not scared into silence by the appar ent combination of Taft and Cannon." This was the declaration of Repre sentative Norris of Nebraska, a lead ing insurgent. Mr. Norris resented the stories appearing in Washington and New York newspapers to tha effect that the insurgents were "lying down" under the edict of the administration. On the contrary. Norris has returned to the attack and criticized" the presi dent himself for the administration singling out the Insurgent representa tives for punishment. "President Taft is making a grave mistake by-aiding Cannon In this way. I want to say so unhesitatingly," con tinued Norris. "I don't object nor do any of the insurgents object as far as I know, to the withholding of patron age. But I denounce the singling out of men who have opposed Cannon and the house organization for the inflic tion of punishment. "How can the president say we are opposed to his policies and declare that we are to be punished, when we have not opposed his policies in any way? We don't in fact yet know what the president's policies are to be. We have not even received messages on several important subjects. "Postmaster General Hitchcock ad mitted that we are being discriminat ed against right now, although we have done absolutely nothing to merit it. except oppose Cannon and the house machine. "The president is aiding Cannon. No other construction can be placed on this move of the administration. "I want to say that the effort to de feat us by starting fights against us at home is open to vigorous criticism. "I have no objection to Speaker Can non or any of his supporters coming to Nebraska and making any kind of a fight on me they wish to make, but I do deny that the Republican con- -gressional committee has any right to attack me."
