PINCHOT'S POLICY
IS GIVEN SUPPORT
LIVE STOCK CONVENTION FOR
FEDERAL CONTROL
RANGE LEASE LAW FAVORED BY
DELEGATES
Bitter Personalities Exchanged by
Mackenzie and Ammons.
Tariff Law Is Con.
demned
[Associated Press]
DENVER, Jan. 13.—The National
].i\r Stock association at its final ses
sion today overwhelmingly declared In
favor of federal control of the open |
range. In spite of the protests of Col
orado delegates that federal control
a lease law benefited the big cat
tlo companies at the expense of the
small stock man, the resolution com
mending the administration of Giffor,d
Plnchot and advocating a range lease
under federal control was adopted.
The discussion led to an exchange of
bitter personalities between Vice Pres
ident Murdo Mackenzie and K. M. Am
mons of Littleton, Colo.
Resolutions condemning the Payne
tariff law, advocating the increase of
power of the interstate commerce com
mission and the fixing of a minimum
speed limit for stock trains were also
adopted.
President H. A. Jastro of Bakersfleld,
i'al.. First Vice President Murdo Mac
kenzie of Trinidad. Colo., and Second
Vice President Joseph M. Carey of
Cheyenne, Wyo., were re-elected.
Fort Worth, Texas, was selected as
the next place of meeting.
SUPPORTS POLICY
NEW HAVEN, Conn., Jan. 13.—Prof.
Henry S. Graves of Yale, newly ap
pointed national forester, in an inter
view today expressed himself in favor
of the policy pursued by Jlr. Pinchot
as chief of the forestry service. So
far as he knew there would be no re
organization of the service, said Prof.
Graves.
FRANCE AND GERMANY
MAY FORM COALITION
Movement Started to Bring Two Euro.
pean Countries into Closest
of Relations
BERLIN, Jan. 13.—The Post, which
frequently receives official informa
tion, .states that in all probability the
emperor and the French president, M.
Fallleres, will meet next spring.
It is .stated that the occasion will be
the inauguration of the Oceanographic
museum at Monaco, a ceremony which
would in this way develop into a polit
ical event of high importance.
Such a meeting between the kaiser
and the president of the French repub
lic would be one of the most interest
ing events of international politics of
the last decade, and would be the cul
mination of the movement in favor of
the establishment of closer and more
friendly relations between these two
i neighboring countries which has been
going on steadily but without osten
tation for nearly three years.
After the bitter feeling excited by
the Morocco dispute many Influential
men in Germany realized that a more
conciliatory policy was needed than
that which led to M. Delcasse's down
fall in 1905.
Influential meeting's have been held
for this purpose in Berlin, an asso
ciation ha<? been formed here for a
Franco-German entente, lectures have
been delivered by Baron d'Estournel'es
<le Constans in Berlin, and exchange
visits by German p.nd Fren"h students
have been arranged. Finally a French
newspaper, the Journal d'Allemagne,
has been founded in Berlin to promote
Franco-German friendship.
ROME IS PREPARING FOR
BIG EXPOSITION IN 1911
Task Simplified by Fact That Turin
Also Will Hold Exhibit in Honor
of United Italy
ROME, Jan. 13.—The program of the
Kreut exhibition to be held in Rome
Jn 11)11 is attractive as well as orig
inal and reflect! credit on th<> execu
tive eommfttee ami their Indefatigable
president, fount di San Martino. The
fiftieth anniversary of the proclama
tion of Rome as the capital of the new
united Italy is an occasion which
might well call for more than or
dinary i (forts for its celebration, and
the city seems to have fully respond
ed to the call.
The task was simplified to some ex
-Imt by the fact, that Turin will un
dertake in the same year an exhibi
tion exemplifying the great econ lo
progress made in Italy, her advance
in science and machinery and her ag
ricultural and industrial products. The
exhiibtion of Rome, was, therefore,
free to devote Itself to the more gen
erally interesting display of her
achievements in the line arts and of
the discoveries of archaeology.

phosphate deposits on public lands,
when the withdrawals which now pro
tect them are removed. So with the
enormously valuable coal deposits in
Alaska, wnich the present law would
sell for ilO per acre.
"The danger of bad legislation is no
less serious. The special interests must
no longer be allowed to take what tiiey
choose out of the great property of all
the people. Those who steal public
lands steal homes from men and wo
raon who need them. Congress can
•top the pillage, or congress can let
it go on.
"in the absence of proper action two
great conservation plans for the public
welfare may fail. The first is the con
trol of water powers on navigable
atreama in the public interests. The
second is the construction of the deep
waterways from the great lakes to the

Commercial Necessity
"The unanimous opinion of the Mis

"The failure to develop our water

The former forester then calls on
every "man of good will" to make it
dear to his representatives in congress
his firm intention to hold them per
sonally responsible for safeguarding
"the rights and property of the peo
ple "
in such action, says Mr. Pinchot, lies
the remedy.
"The first great Immediate danger la
that the water power will be lost; the
second, that the coal landa will be lost."
The .statement concludes: "But these

of us. That issue is whether this coun
try shall be managed by men for hu
man welfare or by money for profit.
"It Is a tremendous issue, far greater
than any man's personal feelings or
personal fortunes. It lies between the
people and their representatives on one

that the supreme teat is the. welfare of
the plain people. It is time to ap
ply it."
Government officials tonight declined
to make any reply to the statement
Issued by Mr. Pinchot, because, owing
to the lateness of the hour at which it
was given out, they did not have time
to examine it carefully.
It is not believed, however, that any
formal reply will be made to Mr. Pin
chot's defense of his action, inasmuch
as he no longer is an official of the gov
ernment.

INFLUENZA IN NEW FORM
IS EPIDEMIC IN LONDON
Malady Attacks Eustachian Tube and
Produces Serious and Distressing
Deafness
LONDON, Jan. 18,—Influenza is
again epidemic here, probably owing
to the freaky weather. "Thin .season
it lias attacked tin eustachlan tube,"
cays a prominent West Knrt physician,
"and has produced a serious and flls
tresaing deafness. The tube becomes
blocked and a gathering makes its ap
pearance at the drum. The treatment
consists in the use of a douche to
clear the passage and a general ton
ing up of the whole system.
"But the old-time Influenza is with
us, too. It is attacking the bones and
weakening the constitution. Here it
growl very serious. The pneumococci
—the germs of pneumonia—attack the
weakened* system and the heart, pow
crl.-ss to survive the trouble, may
cease to beat.
"I am not an alarmist, but every
care should be taken to ward off an
attack. I have patients who have
been ill for many years owing solely
to complications which follow influ
enza."
The following are some suggestions
for sufferers:
Keep out of draughts.
Feed regularly and well. ,
Avoid excitement and Intoxicants.
Never fail to consult a doctor at the
early stages of the disease.

CLARK ATTACKS
HOUSE DESPOT
MINORITY LEADER SCATHES
SPEAKER CANNON
Missouri Solon Bitterly Denounces
Tactics and Policy of Autocrat
and Predicts Early Fall
of Tyrant
[Associated Press]
PAYTON, 0., Jan. 13.—1n a speech
here tonight, Champ Clark, leader of
the minority in the house of repre
sentatives, attacked Speaker Cannon
and what is known as "Cannonism." ,
Mr. Clark declared that "the tide is
everywhere rising against 'Cannonism,'
and that the fight against house rules
would continue until crowned with,
success."
Mr. Clark said the statement of Mr.
Cannon that the fight against the
house rules was simply an effort to pre
vent any tariff legislation was untrue.
Mr. Clark referred to Speaker Can
non's Kansas City speech, which he
said "was devoted ehietiy to a discus
sion of the fight to amend the hous»
rules, and to motives, ambitions, men
tal equipment and political status of
some of us who have dared to lift our
eye« above his shoestrings, look him
squarely in the face and battle in the
open for the rehabilitation of the house
of representatives.
"It would be interesting to know how
that speech happened to be written and
read to the audience and it would be
edifying to know who furnished him
with certain alleged facts on which
he based some of his remark*."
Criticises Hale
The speaker criticised the action of
Senator Hale in haying the speech
printed as a public document and at
public expense, saying: "Evidently the
intention is to circulate it ad libitum
as a piece of campaign literature to
help elect another standpat house of
representatives Which w ill in turn elect
Mr. Cannon to the sptakership, for, as
MacAuley said of Sir Robert Walpole,
he is 'avaricious of power' and clings
to it with the tenacity of a snapping
turtle and with the desperation of a
drowning man clutching a plank in
mldocean,
"The speaker professes to love and
admire a courageous man. It's a
strange commentary on his loud pro
fessions in that regard that ho bitterly
assails all those who have courage to
oppose his system and 'deals damna
tion round the land' on all who are not
willing to bow the knee and kowtow
to him. He strikes a Louisi XIV '1 am
the state;' attitude and savagely be
labors all those who would liberalize
the rules of the house.
"Against Hon. Joseph (r. Cannon per
sonally I have nothing whatsoever; ho
has done me many kindnesses, which
1 have tried to repay, but I am hon
estly opposed to what has become
known to be 'Cannonism' in our legis
lation, and it should be rooted out, and
the tide is everywhere rising against
'Cannon ism.'
Has Traveled Much
"Since the adjournment of congress
I have been over most of lowa, Ne
braska. Missouri, Kansas. Oklahoma,
Colorado and into South Dakota, and
everywhere in that region 'Cannonism'
in tiic resounding theme of every
tongue, and against it that portion of
the country is ailame.
"One of the speaker's favorite
Charge! is that I, while denouncing
him as a czar, am ambitious to be a
exar myself, which is too ridiculous to
talk about.
"I?y revising the rules I lose half the
power I had as minority leader and
shear myself of at .least half my pow
er should I become speaker; but I be
lieved then and believe now that I was
right and working for the public
good." ..
In conclusion Mr. Clark said: "Cer
tainly the Republicans cannot be de
scribed as a happy family. The Pur
son-Cannon row, the Ballinger-Pinchot
row, the Crane- row, theinsur
gent-standpat row, the constantly in
creasing talk of 'the return from Elba, 1
the central bank row, all of these are
merely symptoms, but most suggestive
symptoms, of the disease now afflict
ing the a. o. p. So, while Democrats
everywhere celebrate the glad • new
year by getting together for an assault
all along the line upon the common
enemy, Republicans present to the as
tonished gaze of men the appearance
of a dissolving. view." ■■/,..

BABY STARTS ROMANCE
THAT CULMINATES IN
INTERNATIONAL UNION
Pretty Philadelphia Heiress and En.
glish Barrister Thrown Together
Through Charms of Lat.
ter's Niece
NEW YORK, Jan. 13.—Baby smiles
are the background of the romance
revealed in the cabled announcement
from London recently of the marriage
there of Miss Helen Louise Steck, heir
ess, of New York and Philadelphia
and Walter Phelps Dodge, London bar
rister, an author and an authority on
international law. He is 41 years old.
Three months ago, while on a visit
to this city in the interest of clients,
Mr. Dodge met the beautiful, talented
daughter of Edward Milton Stock, a
Philadelphia millionaire. She is 17
years did, a fine musician, and shone
as one of the younger set in the Phila
delphia assemblies.
It was while stopping hero at the
New York residence of her mother, 142
West Forty-fourth street, that Miss
Helen met Mr. Dodge at a dinner given
by his cousin, Guy Dodge. Rosemary,
the 4-year-old daughter Of Mr. Dodge,
and Miss Helen became inseparable
companions. In this way Miss Steck
was thrown in almost daily associa
tion with Rosemary's father.
It was not lons before the tiny fin
gers began to weave the net of love
about Miss Steck and Mr. Dodge.
There were dinners, house parties and
boxes at the theater, and little Rose
mary was there, aiding Cupid in his
work.
Before lie left New York tor his home
in England Mr. Dodge pleaded with
Miss Steck to becdffiS his wife and
accompany him abroad. She asked
more time to consider. When the time
came for Mr. Dodge to sail on the
Hamburg-American liner Amerika
Miss Steck was at the pier, and the
last words she heard as the big ship
pulled out Into the stream was little
Rosemai'y's call:
"Please come with us."
The big liner had hardly passed the
Hook before Cupid, on the wings of
wireless, continued his work. Several
times daily Miss Steck received wire
less messages from Mr. Dodge. Mr.
Dodge arrived in Bremen. That same
afternoon there came this cablegram
to the Steck home in Forty-fourth
street:
"Will you make my New Year
happy?"
Mrs. Steck took up the narrative of
her daughter's romance.
"It is truly a love match," said Mrs.
Steck. "I expected to hear an an
nouncement of a formal engagement,
bur was surprised when a cablegram
told me of the wedding. Helen loved
Rosemary, and through her learned
to love Mr. Dodge. My daughter
sailed for Europe directly after she had
received a cablegram from the other
side. She sailed on a few hours' no
lice. Mr. Steck, who is traveling,
cabled bli blessing."
Walter Phelps Dodge has been mar
ried twice before. His first wife was
Miss Ida Cook of London and his sec
ond Miss Ethel Adior.i Coles of Stan
ton Court, -. London, who died MOM
years ago. . . 'X
CHINA SYSTEMATIZES
FRONTIER SETTLEMENT
Russians Become Alarmed at Move
ment of Government in Promot.
ing Colonization Idea
ST. PETERSBURG, Jan. 13.—An in
teresting paper by Dr. A. Kokhanov
sky on "Chinese Colonization Along
the Russian Frontier" is published in
the Proceedings of the Russian Impe
rial Geographical—society. This paper
is of especial value at the present mo
ment when the complex situation in
the far east is attracting- more and
more attention in St. Petersburg and
pessimistic views appear to be gaining
ground.
Dr. Kokhnnovsky says that while
there has always existed in China a
tendency to colonize the frontier re
gions, the movement has during the
last few years boon intensified and
systematized to a remarkable degree.
The government now actively promotes
the movement. In 1902 a Colonization
society was formed with the object of
colonizing the region in Mongolia be
tween Urga and Kodune; half the cap
ital of the society is provided by the
treasury. The governors in the fron
tier regions, who are usually highly
tfiucated and experienced rten, skilled
in administration and diplomacy, now
realize the importance of colonization,
in view of the development of Rukso
rhinese relations and the impending
economic struggle between the two
empires. They accordingly MaiKn
large sums from the provincial fund
for colonization purposes. The gov
ernors are supported 1 y trading com
panies and political dubs, which play
an important part in Chinese public
life.
The great firms in Tientsin and
Shanghai which do business with the
frontier regions ate directly interested
in the colonization movement, since
the Mongols; Klrghiaoa and Salts who
roam over these regions! display a pref
erence for Russian goods or local
products. The poorer classes of the
Chinese population in the regions
nearer the coast are only too glad to
avail themselves of the encouragement
given -by the authorities, and the
movement northward and westward is
now assuming an almost elemental
character recalling, a.< Dr. Kokhanov
«ky remarks, the movement of the
Russian peasantry to the Black «ea
steppes.

AERIAL CRAFT PROMISE
TO FIGURE IN NEXT WAR
Census Shows the Relative Strength
of -the Various Great
Powers
LONDON, Jan. 13.—The next war
promisos to be a duel of aeroplanes
against dirigibles. A census of aerial
craft shows that at the opening of
1910 Germany possesses fourteen dirigi
bles and five aeroplanes, while Franco
possesses seven dirigibles and twenty
nine aeroplanes. France has twice the
number of aerial craft that Germany
pins its faith to; but the steering bal
loons of Germany are twice those of
France, while, on the other hand,
France has six times as many aero
planes as Germany.
If the aeroplane is the better instru
ment, France should gain the upper
hand easily: while, if the dirigible is.
as is commonly supposed in the present
stage of experiment, the better light
ing piachine, the victory should go to
Germany. Germany stands alone, how
ever, in its preference for the steer
able balloon.
England at the opening of 1910 pos
sesses two of each; Austria, two dirigi
bles and four aeroplanes; Russia, three
dirigibles and six aeroplanes; Spain,
one dirigible and three aeroplanes; and
Italy, three dirigibles and seven aero
planes. The provision for the construc
tion of aerial craft by the great powers
is interesting. The German budget sets
aside $1,900,000 for dirigibles; tlv>
French $225,000, also for dirigibles; and
Austria proposes to spend $27,500, also
on steerable balloons, while, England is
arranging to launch the largest craft
of the kind that has yet been built.
