GLAVIS TESTIFIES AGAINST BALLINGER Accusers of Secretary of Interior Now Offer Former Chief of Field Di. vision to Lay Foundation of His Case WASHINGTON, Jan. 27.—The Bal linger-Pinchot inquiry will be resumed at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning with Louis R. Glavis again on the stand. Glavis has been offered as the flrst witness by accusers of the secretary of the interior, to lay the foundation of their case. At the initial session of the com mittee he made little more than a start on his testimony. In beginning, however, Mr. Glavis made the additional charge against Secretary Ballinger that, before enter ing the govemme- service, he had acted as counsel in the Wilson Coal company cases in the state of Wash ington, by drawing up an escrow agree ment and deeds for alleged fraudulent claimants. Glavis laid emphasis on the fact that Mr. Ballinger's name had been omit ted from all records in the case and that the claimants appeared only "by attorney." From the manner in which the com mittee proceeded yesterday it is evi dent that each member, when he wants a particular point illuminated, will not wait for tin opportunity to cross examine, but will interrupt witness to bring out additional evidence, or to call attention to discrepancies. No one is willing to hazard a grupss as to the length of time that will be consumed by the committee. Already it has appeared necessary that wit nesses shall be called from Seattle and other points in the west, and that of fice records may have to be obtained from Juneau, Alaska. One commttteeman declared today that at the rate of progress set at the first session it will take nineteen years to complete the inquiry.

Jan. 27.—The postal savings bank bill, drafted by Senators Carter, Dolliver and Owens, a sub committee of the committee on post offices anil post ronds, was perfected today and was introduced in the senate by Mr. Carter.

Tho bill provides that a system of I postiil sn.vin^H depoiitorie* under the supervision of a board of truatee« t" consist of the secretary of the treasury. i the postmaster general and the atlor , ney general shall be established. This board Is authorized to make all : regulations governing custody of nion : c> s deposited with the postal savings bank.

They are to receive deposits I from the public, and are to be kept 1 open for the transaction of builnega in i the usual postofflce business hours of i the town or locality where they are lo cated. Accounts may be opened by any per son 10 years or more of age, and by married women in thof own names and free from Interference by their hus bands. No person will be permitted to have more than one account. An account cannot bo opened for less than $1, and not more than $100 can be deposited in any one month. Other Regulations All deposits must be multiples 'of $1, but, that smaller amounts may be ac cumulated for deposits, savings cards will be issued and 10-eent postal sav ings stamps sold.

CORPORATION ACT IS READY FOR CONGRESS IDEAS OF PRESIDENT TAFT EM BODIED IN MEASURE If Passed. Combinations of Capital Will Be Subjected to Three Methods of Federal Supervision WASHINGTON, Jan. 27.—After being subjected to the close scrutiny of prominent lawyers and undergoing repeated revision, the bill embodying the ideas of President Talt for a fed eral incorporation act is ready to be introduced in congress. Its preparation represents months of work by Attorney General Wicker shain and Secretary Nagel, who have sought to draft a measure that will stand the test of the courts and safe guard public interests. Presumably in its main features the bill is in accord with the president's special mesKußi' and with the preliminary draft pub lished several weeks ago. Corporations given a charter under the bill will be held to a strict ac countability for the observance of its provisions, for no less than three dis tinct methods are available to dispos sess them of the privilege of doing business. These are the right of con gress to alter, amend or repeal a char ter; the right of the commissioner of corporations, who issues the charter, to sue for a receivership in case of a violation of any of its features or for alleged insolvency, and the the right of the attorney general to bring pro ceedings for annulment for violations of the anti-trust act. Proceedings instituted by the com missioner of corporations or by the department of justice may be resisted by Injunction or by other legal means. Advocates of the bill believe it is gaining some favor in congress. They believe the measure will prove pop ular and, while it will necessarily compel a readjustment of business methods by the corporate -interests, this will not be harmful to the "good trusts." Monopolistic combinations, it is de clared, will be prevented, but ample provision is made for the organization of business within legal lines.

LAND LOTTERY PLAN OPPOSED IN SENATE Measure Passed After Filibuster, but Pine Ridge Bill Is Subjected to Further Delay WASHINGTON; Jan. That tUrn- Is not unanimous ' approval of tno present method of disposing of reser vation public lands by lottery was made evident in the senate today, when Senators Gore of Oklahoma and Bur kett of Nebraska, protested against the adoption of this method in the sale of unallotted lands in the Rose bud Indian reservation in South Da- The question was sprung by Mr. Gore in consideration of the j}"*°; bud land sale bill." Mr. Gore offered an amendment permitting: applications for the land to be made by registered mail instead of requiring a personal registration on the ground. In pre senting the amendment Mr. Gore said the present system was inconvenient and expensive and had the effect of cutting out people who should be per mitted to enter the lands. Mr. Burkett criticised the present system in unmeasured terms. He told of the crowding of the trains and the insufficient accommodations in fron tier towns on the occasion of recent epanlnss ,vi,i,-h he said, had been marked by much crime and bloodshed. Senators Gamble and Crawford of South Dakota defended the present method as the best obtainable.

Jan. 27.—Admitting that the Payne tariff law woutu have to be justified by the results of its practical operation, Representative Boutell of Illinois, a member of the committee which framed the measure, made a vigorous defense of the new law today In tho house. President Tal't had been criticised, he snid, because ho had declared tho Payne tariff act the best law ever n.'issoii hy rrmercss but. he added, the result would justify that statement. "The common sense and sagacity o[ President Taft will be recognized by his re-election in 1812," continued Mr. Boutell. "It la Bald the act gives province to certain individuals and is the cause of the present high prices. It has In on claimed the tarilt' act lias not brought prosperity and that it will retard prosperity." When the Democrats applauded and then laughed in derision, Mr. Bou tell sharply reproved them. "Why Is it?" he asked, "that the Democrat* always applaud any tale of misfortune or prediction of adver sity?" It was then the turn of the Republi cans to laugh and applaud. > Replies to Bailey Paying especial attention to criti cisms by Senator Bailey of the Dlns ley-AWlrich tariff laws. Mr. Boutell produced a bundle of Texas newspa pers of recent issues and read from them predictions Of unusual prosper ity for Texas in the new year. "Texas." interposed Representative Slayden of that state, "is prosperous, but it is so in spite of, and not be cause of, the Republican tariff, and if the. government \s successful in its criminal prosecutions of the distin guished Republicans, the Big Four trust, times will be much more pros perous in Texas." On being Interrupted by Representa tive Henry of Texas, Mr. Boutell asked that member whether he thought prices were too high. "Certainly, I think prices are too high," replied Mr. Henry. "Prices of what? Do you want lower price of cotton?" asked Mr. Boutell, and Mr. Henry's repiy was drowned in the uproar of applause from the Republicans. Mr. Henry inquired whether the Illinois member had heard that chil dren of Chicago went to school with out their breakfast. "To that I simply give the reply of Jane Addams, who says there Is no truth in that statement," replied Mr. Boutell. Mr. Boutell then read of the in crease of prices of articles upon which the tariff had been reduced in the Payne-Aldrich law. "If a reduction of 75 cents a hun dred on lumber puts the price up," ho added, "I wonder how high it would go if placed on the free list."
