HARRY VALOIS, Mimic and Monologuist. FOUNDER OF CRITTENTON HOMES OIED IN WEST HAS DONE GREAT WORK FOR GIRLS OF THIS AND FOR EIGN COUNTRIES. ONE OF THE HOMES HE SUP PORTS IS LOCATED AT FAR- GO. THIS STATE. Fargo, Nov. 19.—Word was received in the city last night that Charles N. Crittenton, founder of the Florence Crittenton home on Thirteenth street south and seventy-two other like in stitutions in this and foreign coun tries, had died in San Francisco. Fargo people were especially sor rowful for it was only last month that "he spent several days in Fargo and many became acquainted with him and felt a great interest in him and the great work he has done for women and girls of the country. Having a Crittenton home here they were better able to realize the great ness of his works and felt a personal Interest in him. Mr. Crittenton died after an. illness of only about a week of pneumonia. At the time he was taken ill he was making an inspection of the Florence Crittenton homes over the country. It was while on this trip that he was in Fargo. He came to Fargo Oct. 9 and remained until Oct. 12, when he started west to complete his inspec tipn work. While here he lectured at the First Presbyterian church and at the Grand Theater, held a recep tion at the home and other events which brought him in a closer rela tionship to Fargoans than he hada ever been before, as prior to that time he was generally known only by his deeds. Deep sadness prevailed at the home today among the superinten dent and girls staying there. They had lost a benefactor and personal friend. The same conditions were noticeable among the members of the Crittenton home association.

D., Nov. 19.—United States landofflce officials here pooh pooh the story sent cut from LeBeau to the effect that fifteen persons had registered more than once in the Aberdeen land drawing, one register ing four times, and one who register ed twice drawing claims on both res ervations, with the added statement that the government is preparing to prosecute the persons for perjury. It is stated here that the records will not be examined to discover dupli cations of registrations until after they arrive at Washington, and that it will require several weeks for land office employees to go through the mass of 82.000 names for duplicates. It is not likely that any prosecutions will result if persons are discovered to have registered twice, the only punishment that will probably be in flicted being that those who register ed twice and who drew a claim will not be allowed to file upon it. Judge Witten's clerks, during their stay here were occupied in filing away in alphabetical order the list of appli cants above the 20,000 drawn out. The lists will not be gone over until after they reach Washington. As the work was not completed here until Saturday night, the lists have hardly had time to reach the national capi tol yet, and the only persons who know whether anyone registered more than once is the persons who did the registering.

BALL1NGER HAS (Continued from page l.) missioner of the general land office he had recommended action by con gress to prevent and punish the for mation or combinations or trusts by claimants to coal lands and adds "The anti-trust clause of the Alas ka coal act was finally passed May 28, 1908, was not submitted by Mr. Gifford Pinchot, but was submitted as suggestion to Secretary Garfield by Representative Herbert Parson of New York in his letter of May 7, 1908, and favorably considered and indorsed by the secretary in his re port to congress." He then stated that no Alaska coal claims whatever have been pat ented and says that the investigation of all such claims with a view of de termining their validity or invalid ity has been vigorously prosecuted. Mr. Ballinger denounced as "A plain ordinary falsification" a report he is interested in 155,000 shares of the Alaska petroleum and coal company. "The statement that I or my form- B.

It was true that in his- private prac tice after he had resigned as com missioner of the land ofllce he hadof been consulted in the preparation of articles of incorporation under the law of 1908 which had been approved by the president and which permitted the entry of as much as 2,560 acres of coal lands, but not true that either in this or any other connection he had given any advice looking to a fraudulent act against the govern ment. Asked about a statement that he had said that the proper course to take with the public domain was to "divide it up among the big corpor atins and let people who know how to make money out of it." Mr. Ballinger replied: "So assi nine a statement hardly merits a denial. Of course I made no such statement. Such a thought could not be entertained by any normal in telligence. What I really think in regard to tbe public domain and the conservation of natural resources may be found in my official reports as commissioner of the general land ofllce, and in my present annual re port, soon to be published. I have not only been consistently in the vanguard of the conservative move ment, but I have sought to give it permanence along lines reasonably within the spirit of the present law and to secure adequate additional laws.'' He made equally emphatic denial of a statement that his firm is known as the Standard Oil legal ad visor in Seattle. Mr. Ballinger also made response to a charge that in granting rights of way to the Hill and Harriman rail roads, through the Deschutes Canyon in Oregon, had rendered impossible the construction of a power plant in the canyon. Admitting that the de partment had given its approval to the application Mr. Ballinger said that this course had been pursued under the law and in pursuance of the wishes of the people of the sec tion affected, but not without taking the precaution of inserting a require ment that when needed for power plant purposes, each of the railroad companies should elevate its track a hundred feet. But this action, he said, insured to the people of central Oregon competing lines of railroad and at the same time guaranteed the use of the water power when the country needs it CURTIS OVERLOOKED /Continued from page 1.) inscription on each side of the stone, and they read as follows: 'In memory of Lieutenant Bull head, Sergeants Shavehead, Little Eagle, and Privates Warriors Fed Him, Broken Arm, and Hawk' Man, United States Indian Police. \.
