V THE WASHINGTON TIMES, SUNDAY, JULY 9, 1911. " i 14 WASHINGTON ELKS OFF 10 REUNION AT ATLANTIC CITY Big Delegation Leaves This Morning and Others , Will Follow. A big delegation of Elks left Wash ington on special cars at 9 o'clock this morning for Atlantic City to attend the great annual national convention and reunion, which begins there tomorrow morning. Headed sy Exalted Ruler James H. Ward, the party, all In gala attire, boarded the train at Union Sta tion amid the hurrahs of a hundred or so brother Elks who were unable to make the trip. The station presented a lively appear ance as the men bade the delegation farewell.- There were about twenty-nve In the party that left this morning, among them belne Charles Uttermuchle, W. Morrison, C. Krencr, J. L. Farrell. A. Huber. A. Johnson, E. Van Fleet, T. Quill, C. Caldwell, J. Perry, J. Meehan, R. Collins, A. Barron, W. Burdlne, J. Hooper, Fowler, It. Glbb, W. Glrard, W. Spencer, F. Muhn, D. J. Sullivan, and E. Johnson. Tfiis afternoon and tonight dozens more will leave, and by the time they arrive In Atlantic City, it is expected 75,(JO0 Elks, from every State in the Union, will be there. At Philadelphia the Washington vis itors will stop off for a few hours, where they will be entertained by the Philadelphia Lodge. Rofasa Downing, the accredited dele gate to the convention, left this after noon on the 1 o'clock train. He will proceed Immediately to Atlantic City and arrange for accommodations for his brothers, who leave tonight. Every hotel and boarding house at the resort Is crowded with people clamoring and willing to pay any price for rooms. Mr. Downing will have a hard time stowing away the delegates from this city who have not already made their arrange ments. , , The old question of union musicians has again made it impossible for the Washington Elks to appear as a fea ture of the great parade on Thursday. Antipathy of the union music makers toward the United State Marine Band has made it impossible for the local Elks to take their pet bandsmen along, as the union men have several times re fused to march In the parade with Ln cle Sam's musicians. Rather than cause any ill feeling, the Washington delegation voted to go as individuals and not as a. lodge. The hope, however, to bring home a tropnj. Antlered Herds From Over Nation Make Resort Gay ATLANTIC CITY, July 9. Dull clouds overhung the boardwalk this morning, with threats of rain and the greatest July crowd ever gathered in the resort is hurrying Its collective way through the usual outdoor Sunday amusemehts. Secials bearing the Jolly ciowds of Elk lodgemen are being sandwiched in between fivers on both railroads. A big delegation from southern California ar rived at midnight, while clgnt Pullmans bearing the lodge from faraway Port land swung Into the Pennsylvania depot at 9 this morning and was quickly emp tied, while the occupants made a bee line for the surf. Other lodges will come in every time there is room be tween regular and special trains. City officials, most of whom the members of the Elks, allowed special liberties today, and the boaidwalk is having the liveliest Sunday m Its his tory. Boston Delegation Of Elks Is Largest The City Ever Sent BOSTON, July 9. Boston Lodge of Elks left this city today en route for Atlantic City, where the Grand Lodge will begin its annual session tomorrow. The largest number of Elks that ever left Boston to attend a convention was on the special train when It left the Hub today. ' Lodges outside of Boston and manv New England towns wllll leave tonight via the Fall River line for New York. Boston Lodge will march in tenth position in the parade, and Is sparing no expense toward making Its delegation the winner of the- annual trophy. Had No Objections, Is What Parents Say Outwitted in their attempts to prevent the marriage of their daughter, Helen Mary Meinberg, to James J. Kerns, Mr. and Mrs. Lorenzo Meinberg, when seen at their residence, 25 L street northwest, this morning, were taking their daugh ter s elopement philosophically. "We had no objection o the young man," said Mrs. Meinberg, who frus trated the marriage plans of the young people when they ran away at Easter tlme. "My daughter is now nearly eighteen years old, and she Is old enough to know what she Is doing. "We did want her to wait a few years, but you can't stop people from getting married If they huve ithelr minds set on It. They will get a license and be married anyway." Mrs. Meinberg said she did not know who assisted the couple in getting the lli ense. Miss Meinberg and Mr. Kerns, who Is a telephone operator at Foit Myer, were married In the Methodist Episco pal parsonage in Rockvllle, Ma., by the Rev. W. D. Keene. They have gone on a wedding trip to the home of his par ents at Claysvllle, Washington county, Pa. Body of Charles Coons Taken to Philadelphia The body of Charles H. Coons, aged thirty-nine, of Pittsburg, who died at the Starmont Sanatorium, Washington Grove, yesterday afternoon, was taken tp Philadelphia this morning, where funeral services will bo held. Mr. Coons was held in high esteem by members of the various Masonic orders to which he belonged. The funeral services are to be conducted under the auspices of the Knights Templar. Mr. Coons is survived by his wife, two children, both parents, and a brother. His brother, W. J. Coons, of New York, is assistant secretary of the Industrial Savings and Loan Company, Up to the time of his death Mr. Coons was secretary of the Order or Unity, which recently merged with the American Life Annuity Company Into the Pension Life Society. He also was bowling editor of the Pittsburg Presu. ALASKA PROBE TO CHECK WHITEWASH Woroon Who Found "Dick to Dick" Letter Subpoenaed by House Committee Document Is Re ported. Missing. (Continued from First Page.) important communication, was written by hand, and, as Miss Abbott copied it at the time, read: "Dear Dick: I went to see the Presi dent the other day about this Controller Bay affair. The President asked roe) whom it was I reprosentoa. I told him, according to our agreement, that I rep resented myself. But that didn't seem to satisfy him. So I sent for Charles Taft and" asked him to tell his brother who it was I really represented. The President made no further objection to my claim. Yours, DICK.' Is Note In Files Now? Is there any such note now in the de partment flies of this case? If there Is not, then comes the ques tion of Miss Abbott's veracity. It 1? her word against the files and the of ficial corps at the department. She has convinced the members of the Gra ham committee with whom she has talked, as well as other people who have heard her detailed story, that she tells the truth. As confirmation, Miss Abbott has in her possession the original notes she made when she took the text of the letter from the files. The notes are written on both sides of an Interior De partment memorandum pad. "I had been taking some notes, as I went through the record, on a little pad of yellow paper," explains Miss Abbott. "When I came to copying this letter I wanted somethimr larger, and asked Private Secretary Brown: " 'Have you a little larger paper I could use for this?" "He handed me a larger pad of white paper, with 'Interior Department' print ed across the top. I used a sheet from this in making the copy of the note, which I still have." Conflict In Testimony. The strange conflict of testimony about whether the letter is now in the file, has whetted the curiosity of mem bers of the investigating committee. On Friday evening, following the first pub lication of Miss Abbott's story of the whole affair In The Times, a statement was given out by somebody at (the White House that there was no such paper In the Interior files. Could Have Been Removed. "The first I heard of this," said Miss Abbott today, "was when, on Friday evening, newspaper men called me up and said that the Interior flies had been shown to representatives of the New York World and New York Tribune to prove that the paper was not there; and that these newspaper men did not find It That was the first suggestion to me that It had been taken out after my examination of the file. It Is true, however, that It could easily have been removed. Mr. Brown, who showed roe tho file, obviously did not want me to see that paper, and In turning the pages passed it over by turning two pages at a time. Later I got the file Into my own hands, went back over the pages, and found this paper. I copied it at once. "Brown was secretary to Balllnger, and was retained for a time as secre tary to Fisher, but is not now in the position. I cannot, of course, venture a guess whether the paper has been taken out of the file, but I have ex cellent reasons for confidence that by the time my testimony is com plete, It will be sustained as to the question of whether that paper was there when I saw the file. It will also be sustained, I am very sure, as to my confidence that Ryan acted In this Controller Bay matter for the Guggenhelms." Cox's Resolution. Representative Cox of Indiana, pro posing that there shall be no' stone unturned to get to the bottom of these charges, and not knowing that the Graham committee was arranging for an Immediate Inquiry, has intro duced a resolution calling on the President for all information, docu ments, records, in the Controller Bay affair. His resolution follows: "Whereas, the country in the past year was wrought up over the Cunning ham coal claims in the District of Alas ka, whereby It was believed that the Government of the United States, through fraudulent entries was about to be defrauded out of millions of dollars' worth of valuable coal lands, and "Whereas, the present Secretary of the Interior, Hon. Walter L. Fisher, re cently held said entries fraudulent can celled and set said entries aside, thereby restoring said claims to the public do main, and "Whereas, It was publicly charged that the supposed Cunningham claims. In the District of Alaska, were in real ity claims held In the interest of the Guggenheim syndicate of New York, and "Whereas, the Guggenheim syndicate now has control of the only outlet for said coal contained In what Is known as the Cunningham claims on the north, throtJih their ownership and control of the harbor at Cordova bay, and "Whereas, the only other outlet for the coal and mineral contained in said Cunningham claims as well as other coal and mineral lands, contiguous thereto In said District is in and through the Controller Bay harbor in the Southern part of Alaska, and "Whereas, the land on and adjacent to the Controller Bay harbor was wise ly withdrawn from settlement and placed in a forest reserve, to be kept by the Federal Government for perma nent and bonl fide settlement, or to be disposed of by the Government upon the best advantageous policy that would develop, or tend to develop, the Territory of Alaska, thereby adding millions of wealth to all the people, and especially to the citizens of Alaska, and "Whereas, It has been publicly charged that the president of the Unit ed States did on the 2Sth day of Oc tober, 1910 by secret executive order take the land, on and adjacent to Controller Bay harbor from the Na tional Forest Reserve, and restore said land to the public domain, and "Whereas, it has been publicly charged that one Richard S. Ryan, a secret agent of the Guggenheim syn dicate, through the then Secretary of the Interior. Honorable Richard A. Balllnger, and through one Charles P. Taft, a brother of the President, Induced the President of the United States to sign the Executive order, dated October 28. 1910, restoring the land pn and adjacent to Controller Bay harbor in Alaska to the public domain, and by restoration thereof, of said land to the public domain, the Guggenheim syndicate, thrbugh its secret agent, Richard S. Ryan, has now. or will get control of Controller Bay harbor, through which all the coal and minerals, situated In what is known as the Cunningham coal dis trict, and other mineral lands adja cent thereto must paas, thereby giving to the Guggenheim syndicate com plete monopoly and control of the out let, both north and south, for all the coal and mineral, situated In the Cun ningham district In the Territory of "Therefore, be It resolved, That If It be not incompatible with public inter est, the President of the United States, be, and he is hereby, requested to in form the Hot.se of Representatives of all the facts and circumstances sur rounding the issuing of his order dated October 28, 1910, withdrawing said land from the National Forest Reserve and restoring the same to the public domain, why said order was Issued, and that he inform the House of Representatives what representations were made to him, if any, by the said Ryan, Balllnger, and Charles P. Taft, as to why said order, dated October 28, 1910, was Issued, and whether or not any representations thus made to him by said parties Induced him in any way to sign said order, and whether or not he has any evidence or Information in his possession that the said Ryan is, or was, secretly or other wise working in the interest of the Guggenheim syndicate at that time, and that he transmit to the House of Rep resentatives all letters, correspondence, papers, documents, telegrams of eveiy description in his possession relating to Controller Bay harbor, for the Issuing of said order, dated October 28, 1910, to gether with all facts and circumstances now In his possesion " The foregoing resolution was drafted by Mr. Cox after he had read In The Times the story of Miss Abbott's expe riences during her Investigation of Alaska affairs. It will probably be prpssed and passed. If any occasion arises for forcing publicity of records which the Interior Department may hesitate to show to the Graham com mittee. Otherwise It Is likely not to be urged. Miss Abbott's Modesty. Miss Abbott, the newspaper woman whose revelations have stirred the country from end to end, is about the last person who would be suspected of getting Involved in an affair of anch character. She views her part In It with all modesty, frankly confessing that when she found nnd copied thp "Dick to Dick" note, Bhe was rather amused than anything else. Familiar with the long and Involved record In the matter, she was at work on a dif ferent theory of the case. The idea of n brother of the President appearing as the man who convinced the Presi dent that he ought to turn these lands over to the man she believed to be the Guggenheim agent, had never occurred to her; but when she discovered the note, and was Impressed with the evi dent desire of Secretary Brown to "re vent her seeing It, she lost no time copylntr It. In the midst of the excite ment she has created. Miss Abbott Is about the coolest person connected with the whole transaction. Girlish In Appearance. That a glrllsh-looklng little woman of maybe twenty-six years and 110 pounds should have succeeded In getting to the sensational Inwardness of a case that has defied Congressional committees and other investigators. Is not no re markable, after all. when Miss Abbott's story is known. She Is a boston girl and doesn't wear glasses, either. A graduate of Radcllffe, she became a student of forestry and conservation problems, won various prizes in literary and Investigation work, especially one offered by the World's Work magazine, when she was a mere girl, and In a big competition. Interest in forestry and her studies of it, brought her finally to an editorial position with American Forestry'. Which she still retains. She has written1 ex tensively on conservation, forestry, and related tonics for various periodi cals, always, however, writing under the non-committal name of "M. F. Ab bott," and being widely known among people Interested In these subjects. Few of the hundreds of people with whom she has corresDonded or who have read her writings have suspected that the author was a woman. Expert On the Question. ' Her conservation studies naturally led to Investigation of Alaska affairs, and there are few people who know this subject so well. She became Inter ested a long time ago In the Controller Bay situation, and several weeks since came from New York to Washington determined to make the most thorough investigation nosslble. The rest of the story is the natural development from this work. She se cured access to the flies regarding Controller Bay, and there discovered the matters that have caused so much wonderment and Inspired at least three efforts for immediate Congres sional inquiry. Miss Abbott's friends; who have gone over her story in great detail, antici pate that she will prove a Tartar when unfriendly lawyers attempt to confuse her In her narrative They predict that as a' witness she will be another Glavls.

The priest and oth er men in the church held him until the irrlval of the patral wagon from the Fifth proclnct station house. Poke Declare War on Cowboys and Indians Bewhlskered cowboys and grimy look ing, red-blanketed Indians, flourishing young cannons in both hands, and ranting around on wild-eyed ponies can't chase each other around on flaming pasters In the capital city. The Police Department won't stand for it. An edict, as stringent and binding as one Issued by some barbarous poten ate In the middle ages, is to be en forced strictly. From now on Major Sylvester's min ions will efface any such dare-devil portrayals of gentle Western life. The youths of the city, says the Chief of Police, must be protected from the lure such posters are apt to brintf about. Last week the police multltated many yards of posters on the show grounds at Fifteenth and H street northeast. rail MAYOR DECLARES IB ON Protection of Children Or der to Go Into Effect This Week.
