Field Agent Exposes Political Tricks GLAVIS SCORES SEC. BALUNGER SAYS SECRETARY HELD BACK, ALASKAN CASES WANTED TO PROCURE CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS .surprising Revelations Made at Con. gressional Inquiry by Man Whom Taft Had Ousted for His Persistence iCoelln-.eil from Vamr (>s«> there had been one from Special Agent . Uidii't Love recommend the Cunning ham claim for clear listins?" asked Representative Madison. "It didn't amount to a recommenda tion exactly," replied counsel. At this point Mr. Sutherland said: "It seems to me we are getting a great deal more testimony out of coun sel than out of the witness." Thereupon the examination of Glavis was resumed. He told of a visit to Washington 'n December, 1907, when he took up with officials of the land office the matter of the Alaska claims. He told Mr. Schwartz that people in Seattle were saying there would be no further in vestigation of the claims in Alaska and the patents would be granted. "I said there waa great danger of an other big scandal equal to that in Wyoming and Colorado, where the in vestigation of the coal land cases had been suppressed," declared Glavis. "Who suppressed those investiga tions?" demanded Senator Paynter. Blame Richards "It was testified at Salt Lake that former Commissioner Richards did — Mr. Balllnger had no connection with it in any way." "Why were people in Seattle saying they would get their patents?" asked Mr. James. "I don't know," replied Glavis. "I know of no reasons they may have had." "Who made these statements?" in quired Mr. Olmstead. "There were a number of claimants In the Hunt group. I can't recall the names." After his interview with Mr. Schwartz, Glavls was conducted to Mr. Balllnger's office and as a result of his visit to Washington and the story he told was Immediately placed I'd charge of all the Alaska cases. "What did you cay to Mr. Ballinger?" "I told him I thought we could cancel all the Alaskan claims; that a lot of prominent people had formed a pool and that the evidence would prove it." "What did Mr. Ballinger say to you?" "He said a number of the claimants were friends and former business as sociates of his and that there had been a lot of talk that they would get their patents. " 'Now, Glavls,' he said, 'when you set back to Seattle I want you to let it be publicly known that you have started this investigation, and I want it to be thorough, no matter whom it hurts. You are to go right after them, whether they are friends of mine or not.' " Mentioned Several "Did he mention names of liis friends?" "Yes, he spoke of H. C. Henry and C. J. Smith, both of whom were in the Cunningham group." Glavis said he went back to work happy and satisfied that there was to be a thorough Investigation, and 'that he had worried unnecessarily about a possible scandal. The following witnesses were sub poenaed today at the request of the prosecution: Horace T. Jones, special agent land office, Portland, Ore.; Ar thur R. Bowman, Cheyenne, Wyo,; Andrew Kenney.

BABY'S ITCHING SOOTHEDAJ ONCE And Soon Cured Perfectly and Eco nomically—Doctor Called It Ec zema and Little Sufferer Rubbed and Twisted All the Time. a CUTICURA AGAIN PROVED "THE GREAT SKIN CURE" "My baby boy was about nine months old when he had a. breaking out on his neck which was very annoy ing. It used to make him very fretful and cross because it seemed to worry him so much. In the meantime I was sick myself. I had my doctor look at the baby and he told me it was eczema and he wanted to treat it. But a friend of mine told me she knew it could be cured cheaper than any doctor could do it for and in much less time. So I started using the Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment which I soon found out was what I ought to have had be fore, for the eczema seemed to itch so the baby could not keep his head still for he was rubbing and twisting all the time. I used the Cuticura Remedies about three times the first day and began to notice the good it was doing, for he began to get rest from rubbing his neck. "So I used three cakes of Cuticura Soap and two boxes of Cuticura Oint ment and now no one could tell that he ever had any kind of breaking out, and since then I have never been without the Cuticura Soap nor the Cuticura Oint ment.

Richardson, Seattle. Qlavls declared it was December 13. 1907, he had his interview with Com missioner Balltnger. On January '■ 190S, less than a month after he had been directed to make the investiga ■ tion, a letter mi addressed to him by Mr. Ballingor stating that the Cun i ningham claims had been "clear listed" i from the Investigating division for patent. On January 22. 190S, Glavls sent a telegram and letter protesting against the clear listing of the claims, and they were withdrawn and sent back to the investigating division. At the opening of the afternoon ses- j sion Attorney Brandela offered in cvi- j dence the journal of Clarence Cunning- j ham of Wallace, Idaho, agent In all the Cunningham claims, which con-; tamed the entry: "Have agreed with Mr. W. B. Hey-1 burn, In consideration for his services : as attorney, to carry for him one claim , ' of 160 acres in the coal, free of cost to him, and he agrees to do all our legal work in procuring titles, etc." Letter from Heyburn In an affidavit made subsequent to I the loss of his Journal, Cunningham ; made public a letter from Senator W. B. Heyburn of Idaho, in which the senator said: "I do not desire to participate in or ■be interested in any manner, directly or indirectly, in acquiring public lands. Whatever services I may per form properly within my duty aa a public official for yourself or any other constituent I shall cheerfully perform, but not for any consideration, directly or indirectly. I do not desire any in terest to be carried for me or my ac count with a view to any present or future protit to myself." Cunningham preceded this letter with the statement: "As soon as I became aware that coal lands could not be taken in Alas ka under the mineral laws, Mr. Hey burn informed be in person that he could not act under said agreement." The Journal contained, under date of 1903, an agreement among the Cun ningham claimants to form a company, each claimant to give Cunningham one-eighth of his stock in return for services rendered. Glavis told further of his Investiga tion ;lnto the alleged fraud of the Cunningham group and said when he first approached Cunningham he de clared he had heard complaint had been made that he represented the Cunninghams. He denied this and to carry out the denial submitted the journal to Glavis, who held it as evi dence against Cunningham. About this time, Glavis said he met former Governor Miles C. Moore, one of the Cunningham claimants, and that Moore told him he had seen all the papers in the land office: that there was nothing to prevent the issuance of patents and that if It had not been for Glavis' report, the land would al ready have gone to patent. Reports Confidential The witness said it had always been understood that reports to the land office by the special agents were con fidential and he believed there was a rule to that effect. There was then offered in evidence a letter from Clarence Cunningham dated at Seattle, January 16, 1908, ad dressed to the register of the land of fice, Juneau, Alaska, In which were these statements: "] am glad to know you sent your office copies on to Washington, for I am advised by Governor Moore he Is assured by the department chiefs that patents will be issued you on arrival of plata unless mrae season for with holding same is advanced by Special Field Agent Glavls, which is not ex pected. "The commissioner lias furnished us with copies of all the correspondence and telegrams relating: to our entries between the various special aaonts and also with your office. Up to date everything seems to be approved by each special agent and department chief. So now, our only delay will be occasioned through failure to receive plats, according to Judge Balltnger's advice." Glavis testified to an Interview he had with Mr. Ballinger In Seattle in the middle of March, 1908, two weeks or so after Mr. Ballinger had resigned as commissioner. A letter was Intro duced showing that prior to April 1, 1908, Mr. Ballinger had requested In formation regarding Home of the land claims from Fred Dennett, his suc cessor. Ballinger Bothered Olavis said he knew Judge Ballinger would be bothered by a lot of people In Seattle as soon as he returned there af ter leaving the government service, and he wanted to lay his side of the case before him first. "But he was not a government official then?" suggested Olavis' counsel. "But I regarded him as such," replied Glavls. "Mr. Ballinger told me," tlte witness ! continued, "there hud been a lot of muckraking and that I ought to be careful before making specific charges against anyone. At a subsequent inter view with" .Mr. Ballinger I told him Cunningham was accusing me of hav ing stolen his journal. He told me not to worry, that Cunningham evidently was spreading I his story to square him self with his principal! for doing such a silly thing as to give the Journal to me." As to the Guggenhelms' Interest In the Cunningham claims, Attorney Brandeis read a letter from Field Chief Schwartz, Sated September 23, 1308, which said among other tilings: "While Cunningham la strenuous In j his affidavits thai they aj'e not a part ! 1 of or bonded to the Cunninghams, it li ! a little peculiar that their memorandum i booh of expense! Incurred should pro along from day to day ivith great d< tail from the Inception of the claim 1902 until December 1907, and then c with: "'The above sum was received from I ; Daniel Guggenheim in full for expense Incui mint of the examination of coal landi on his account—chech re ed, J13.".«.00.' " Glavla told of anothi r Interview with Ballinger In Portland, Ore., In October, : 1908, luring the course of which, the witness said, Mr. Balllnger remarked that the Cunningham claimants were In a bad iix. and asked if he (GlavU) knew of :iny way they could get title U> the land. ' Told Them the Way "I told him," the witness continued, ] "that if the claimants would relinquish their claims, their wives and friends might file on the land, provided they > did so without agreement, and could ko in patent without trouble. "Mr, Balllnger said he thought this arrangement would leave the cases in the same fix." Representative Denby Interrupted: ■■Wasn't your suggestion rather look- i nil," to an evasion of the law than a npllani c with it?" , "Well," laid Glavis, "the Cunningham i claim* were always considered ths gtrongost." "What do you mean by strongest?" "That the claimants were the most I, and "i',i '■ apt to have ihelr i claims approved, and I thought could get them to relinquish their i T.OS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 29. 1910. < claims all the other 800 or 900 in Alaska ' I might follow suit. That was my ob- ; ! ject." •Wouldn't it have been Impossible tor the wives and friends of these claim ants to have Bled upon relinquished claima without previous agreement?" ■ asked McCall. ■That was Mr. Ballinger's objection to the plan.' 1 ciavis. sai.i Mr. Ballinger spoke of the difficulty he was having In securing campaign contributions. "He said," declared the witness, "that 11. C. Henry and C. J. Smith, two of the Cunningham claimants, had usually been liberal contributors but were mad use they had not received patents to their lands and woulff not give any thing. I told Mr. Ballinger I was 'under orders to Investigate the claims \ held by these men. He said be wished 1 would not act on that until after the pon. I told him I wouldn't, and I did not. I was in the midst of ■ conspiracy case In Oregon and could not have given any attention to the other matter if I had wanted to. And i then it was a favor to Mr. Ballinger as well." Met in Seattle ' Glavis said he next saw Mr. Ballin ger in Seattle in February, 1909, after 'it had hern announced that Mr, Ballln ger had been selected as secretary oi the interior In President Taft's cab inet. They discussed the coal rases. and Mr. Balllnger said he thought that where there had been only a technical violation of the law the patl ntS ought to be Issued, Qlavis said I with him." Qlavia said lie was ordered on Mas -. 190*. to discontinue the Alaskan In quiry and take up the Oregon case. where he had recommended that, if something "ere not done at once the statute of limitations soon would prove b bar. "But I also said the Alaska Investi gation should not be dropped at that time." added Glavis. Reading from Attorney General Wickersham's report to the president on the Glavis charges, Attorney Bran deis quoted this sentence: "He (Glavis) might have added he has never taken any action whatever to bring those criminal prosecutions which he advised the land office must be brought before October, IMB. to escape the bar of the statute of limita tions." "Is that true?" demanded Mr. Bran deis. "It is not," answered Glavis. "In May or April T took the Alaska eases up with United States Attorney Todd at Seattle. He afterward wrote to me savins he had laid the matter before the department of Justice, as there was some doubt in his mind as to whether he should lay the cases before the Seattle grand Jury, where the claim ants lived, or in Alaska, where the claims were located. Report Submitted "In June, 1908, I prepared a report on this subject to Commissioner Den nett, but learning he was to be in Ore con we discussed the entire situation. Dennett said he did not think there should be any criminal prosecution: that he thought it was sufficient if the claims were canceled." Representative James—"What crim inal offense had the claimants com mitted?" "Conspiracy to defraud the I'nited States " Representative James—"And that in volved perjury?" "Yes." Representative James—"But Dennett took the view that if they were kept out of the land that was sufficient?" "Yes." Glavis said he was ordered back on the Alaskan cases in November, 1908, but did not actually take them up untl' March, 1909. He was busy on other matters. He could have assigned agents to the case, but he preferred to give it his personal attention, as it in volved millions of dollars. If ho had not been taken off the work in May, 1909, Glavis declared, he would have hart final reports In the land offlee in the fall of that year. At 5:12 o'clock adjournment was taken until 10 a. m. Saturday.

SHOWS HERMANN KNEW OF FRAUD DOCUMENTARY EVIDENCE IN- TRODUCED AT TRIAL GOVERNMENT SCORES POINT AGAINST DEFENDANT Letter of Protest to Be Submitted to Hitchcock Unsigned So as to Be Kept from Secretary—Prose cution Rests [Associated Press] PORTLAND, Ore.. .lan. 28.— The prosecution today rested its case In the trial of former Congressman Hingci- Hermann, charged with con- Bplracy to defraud the government. and without loss of time the defense began the introduction of testimony. Not sufficient progress had boon made when court adjourned to dis close the line it will follow, further than that one of the points will be an attempt to prove that Hermann as commissioner opposed the creation or extension of forest reserves unless the lieu land act should be repealed or materially modified. By setting before the Jury three let ters signed "Commissioner," and ri lat ing to the protests against the crea tion of the Blue mountain forest re serve, the prosecution scored today liDflt Hermann. It was the custom that when letters were not signed they were returned to the files instead of being forwarded to the individual ad dressed. These three letters concerned protests against the reserve, one lay ing the protests before the secretary j of the interior. Inasmuch as Hermann I did not Bign the communications, they were filed instead of being dispatched. It is the contention of Francis J. Heney that Hermann avoided signing the letters purposely, as they would be returned to the files and the pro tests would not go to Secretary Hitch cock, who would, perhaps, block the creation of the reserve. W. Scott Smith, private secretary of Secretary of the Interior Hitchcock, testified that early in 1901 the secre tary sent for Commissioner Hermann and called his attention to serious "leaks" in his department. Hitchcock, the witness testified, tnld Hermann that such procedure must be stopped or the secretary would himself take measures to stop it. Smith was the last witness to be called by the government, and after the testimony of Assistant Chief Me- Gee of the forestry department, given in the trial of Congressman Hermann in Washington, D. C, had been read Prosecutor Heney announced he had no further evidence to offer at this time. McGee's testimony at Washington was to the effect that in November, 1902, Special Agent Holzinger, who had been sent to investigate charges made by G. A. Zabriskie of Arizona and by various citizens of Oregon, re ported the creation of the Blue Moun tain forest reserve involved a series of gigantic frauds. McGee testified he had taken this report to Hermann and that Hermann had told McGee the commissioner of the general land of fice was the person to pasa on the re port. For the defense. Col. Worthing ton opened by Introducing a mass of documentary evidence consisting of of ficial reports made by Hermann and correspondence signed by him aR com missioner. These documents showed Hermann had on repeated occasions spoken of the frauds in the exchange of school lands included within the reserves for government lands located outside the reserves. Also that Her mann had In several instances opposed the creation of the new forest reserves or the extension of the boundaries of those already established, and that Hermann indicated he would continue his opposition until the lieu land law had been repealed or amended so as to provide the land within a reserve could be exchanged only for land of like character outside of the reserve. The defense was still engaged In the. submission of documentary evidence when Judge Wolverton adjourned court until Monday.
