Attorney for Balllnger Continues His
Tactics of Chastising the Former
Field Chief and Continues
Hot Cross Fire
[Associated Press]
WASHINGTON, Feb. 18.—Louis R.
Glavis was under cross-examin
ation all day today -before the
Ballinger-Pinchot investigating com
mittee, and when adjournment was
taken until tomorrow morning there
was no indication that John J. Ver
trees, counsel for Secretary Ballinger,
was approaching the end of his con
stant fire of interrogations.
Usually the questions have to do with
the construction to be placed on letters,
telegrams, etc., that have been rea<l
into the record. It frequently is neces
sary to go over these documents sev
eral times and to quote freely from
Mr. Vertrees and Mr. Glavis had sev
eral long wrangles in the afternoon as
to meaning of many letters and tele
grams. A typical instance was a tele
gram from Mr. Ballinger In reply to a
message from Commissioner Dennett
of the land office, in which the secre
tary stated his reluctance to act in tho
Alaska cased, and suggested that Mr.
Dennett make the necessary orders
himself as to postponing the hearings.
Vertrees' Contention
Mr. Vertreea sought to show that this
meant that Mr. Ballinger was not
directing the Alaska investigation in
any way whatsoever.
Mr. Glavis, on the other hand. In
sisted the only construction he could
put on the telegram was that it showed
that none of the officials in the de
partment dared do anything in the
cases without first consulting tho sec-
rotary. a
Mr. Glavis contended the telegram
nonveyed a specific order by Secretary
The late afternoon session was de
voted to an inquiry into motives of Mr.
Glavis In seeking the assistance of Glf
ford Plnchot. Glavis said he went to
him because he had faith in him and
felt he was absolutely lincere.
Mr. Vertrees explained several of
his long questions today by the state
ment that he was searching out the
motives of the witness, to discover
whether they were malicious.
Would Call Behrens
Attorney Vertrees, for the defense,
asked that Adolph Behrens of Seattle
be subpoenaed to appear as a witness
before the committee.
Vertrees announced in connection
with the request for a subpoena for
Behrang that he expected to impeach
parts of Glavis' story by the testi
mony of this witness.
Glavis testified that Behrena and
Land Commissioner Dennett lunched
together in Seattle and seemed on cor
dial terms the very next day after
Dennett had told him he did not know
Behrens, one of the Alaskan coal
claimants. Vcrtrees said Behrens al
ready had made an affidavit in denying
all of Glavis 1 testimony.
Vertrees questioned Glavis at some
length regarding his motive for bring
ing to the attention of the committee
a lot of rules and regulations regard
ing coal land entries in Alaska when
Hallinger had made but one slight
change in the rules.
"Was it to leave an unfavorable In
fluence in tho minds of the committee?"
demanded the attorney.
(ilavis would not answer directly.
He said he thought he had given some
testimony favorable to Ballinger.
'Was tho change made by Secretary
Ballinger a good or bad one?" asked
"I considered it a bad one."
The examination had not gone much
further when the attorney and the
witness clashed on the subject of direct
Vertrees protested to tho committee
that Glavis always "ties a string to
his answers," and proceeded:
Doubts His Motive
"I am trying to get at the purpose,
the motive, the object of the. witness,
whether it is innocent or malicious."
Mr. Brandeis, attorney for Glavis,
"He has no other motive than to
toll the truth," shouted the lawyer.
"He is bringing all tho facts he, can
before the committee —all that he con
siders important —to assist the commit
tee in considering Mr. Ballinger's case."
Representative Graham interposed.
"I don't blame Mr. Vertrees for get
tins- impatient at the constitutional
hesitation of speech of tho witness, but
the witness should be allowed to ex
plain his answers."
Chairman Nelson said:
"It is apparent to me that almost
every answer made by the witness has
;i String to it. He has made no di
reoi answers. If we were sitting: In a
court of justice under the rules of evi
dence this state of affairs would not
liuve been permitted. Hut wo are
moving along without rules of evi
dence, and the Chairman is powerless
to enforce any rules.
"I want to say, however, that the
committee will be able to judge of the
facts produced in this case, and the
only effect of these long anawen with
arguments appended is simply to de
lay proceedings."
Vertrees asked Glavis to detail the
act* of Ballinger while out of the gov
ernment service that he considered im
proper. Ballinger resigned as commis
sioner of the land office March 4, 1008,
:md did not becomo secretary of in
terior until March 4, 1809.
"His first act," said Glavis, "was
when he returned from Washington to
Seattle, where I conferred with him
and told him of the evidence I was
securing In the Alaska cases, and hav
ing had as commissioner all the In
formation concerning these cases, he
deliberately represented the coal claim
ants themselves.
"This was contrary to an act of
fongresy, although there had been

a decision favorable and another un-'
favorable on that point. He repre
sented claimants in the Cunningham
and other groups. I state this of my
own knowledge and from the state
ments made to me by Mr. Ballinger
thai lie was doing this work."
Tho witness said Ballinger prepared
an affidavit for Cunningham and took
it to Mr. Garfleld with a view to se
curing patents.
"Is it not a fact that It wns not so
much the character of the work as
the fact that he has been in the office
that you objected to?" asked counsel.
"Mr, Chairman," exclaimed Glavis.
"that question is another that requires
an explanation. I do not want to ex- j
plain all the time; I don't want to de- j
lay the proceedings. It was a.lso with j
reference to his drawing up that affi- ■
davit, lie had previously told me that
he did not see haw tho Cunningham
group could get patents. Yet he was
doing his act toward securing title for j
fraudulent claimants."
Not Loyal to People
Glavis ngain declared that Ballinger i
would not have acted as he did in the i
matter of t.h« Aln ska coal claims if
his own property had been Involved in- |
stead of that of the government, "which J
to my mind," added tho witness, |
"shows ho was not loyal to his trust I
or faithful to the people."
Glavis saH In hta original testimony ■
that Balllnger'a name was left out of i

Questioned by Vertrees Glavis said
he had been told of this by P. C. Rich
"Isn't it a fact that Mr. Ballinger's
name appears nine or ten times in the
deposition of Watson Allen In this
Tills question by Vertreos precipitated
a breezy clash of counsel. Mr. Bran
dels said he had endeavored to have the
committee secure the court records in
the Wilson case, but for soino reason
they had not been produced.
Senator Flint told Brandeis he has
the same access to court records as
anybody else. Vertrees complained he
had only an unverified copy of the rec
ords- that it had been brought on from
Seattle by Mr. Battle, former law part
ner of Ballinger, when he read that It
had been charged that erasures had
been made in the recorn.
A subpoena duces teeum was there
upon directed against the clerk of the
court at Seattle.
Vertrees said much of his Information
as to the Wilson case had come from
Henry M. Hoyt, attorney general of
Porto Klco, who was counsel In the
At the afternoon session Mr. Vertreea
called attention to the fact that in his
original testimony Mr. Glavis expressed
surprise, that Special Agent Sheridan,
who succeeded him in charge of tho
Alaska ease, should have reached the
same conclusions he had
"Why were you surprised?" demand
ed Mr. Vertrees.
Refers to Schwartz
"Well, he. had a letter: of instructions,
and I think they expected a different
report; otherwise they would not have
sent him out there."
"Whom do you mean by 'they'?

Mr. Vertrees then read the letter Into
the evidence.
"In all the time you wore In the
service and in charge of the Alaska!
cases did you feel that you had the con
lidence of your superiors, and did they
not so express themselves to you In
communications from time to time?'
asked Mr. Vertrees.
"Yes, sir," he said, hesitatingly.
"And you say there was no harm
done to the government by the delay
in 1908. when you were temporarily as
signed to the Oregon cases?"
"No, sir; there was no harm."
"And you always had plenty of
"Yes, sir."
Glavis would not admit that Secretary
Ballinger and Commissioner Dennett
acted on Sheridan's recommendation In
postponing a proposed hearing of the
case in the summer of 1909.
Glavis said he told his story to Mr.
Pinchot, and that the latter called in

Second Stroke Is Expected to Prove

of Outcome —Family Much
Alarmed at Condition
[Associated Press]
WASHINGTON, Feb. 18.—Benjamin
Ryan Tillman, senior Senator from j
South Carolina, is critically ill. His j
condition Is extremely grave, and Dr.
E. P. Pickford said late today that the
outcome of the senator's illness would
bo determined within seventyi-two
The. senator's right side is almost
wholly paralyzed, and aphasia has de
veloped a3 a result of a cerebral
hemorrhage on the left side of the
He has nearly lost , the power of ar
ticulation, which is regarded as the
most serious symptom. He may re
cover from the paralysis, but it is said
he may never regain complete use of
his speech, his dearest and choicest
weapon as a legislator, and the keen
edge of which has enlivened many de
bates in congress.
This Is Senator Tillman's second
stroke of paralysis. The first occurred
nearly two years ago when he suffered
a nervous breakdown. At that time he
was treated at an Atlanta sanitarium
and later took a trip for his health.
Late this afternoon Dr. ■William A.
White, superintendent of the govern
ment hospital for the Insane, was called
into consultation with Dr. Pickford.
Mind Fairly Alert
While It was asserted the senator's
mind was fairly alert and that he was
conscious of the happenings near him,
Dr. White, as a specialist on diseases
of the brain, the seat of Mr. Tillman's
illness, was asked to make, an examin
ation .
The verdict of the physicians after
the consultation was that the senator's
condition was extremely serious, and
that the outcome was doubtful.
The alarm of the family Is evidenced
by the fact that they have telegraphed
for Dr. J. W. Babcock, superintendent
of the South Carolina hospital for the
Insane, and the family physician of the.
i The fact that Dr. Babcock will not
leave Columbia until tomorrow seems
to corroborate the statement that there
is no immediate danger of a fatal turn
in the senator's condition.
Absolute quiet has been enjoined, and
no one except relatives sees the pa
tient. The senator's wife and their
eldest son, Benjamin R. Tillman, jr.,
are with him. His other two children,
Henry C. and Sallie May Tillman, have
been summoned. :
SANTA ROSA, Feb. 18.—The grand
jury of Sonoma county at a special
session today began its investigation
of the mysterious explosion in the
tent-house of Luella Smith on the
sanitarium grounds of Dr. Wilkird P.
Burke, who was arrested In connec
tion with the alleged attempt to kill
the Sinjtn woman and her 11-months
old baby.
The grand jury devoted most of its
time and efforts to determine just
whero Dr. Burke was at the precise.
moment that the explosion occurred,
and for that purpose interrogated a
number of the employes, including
doctors and nurses, at the Burke san
On leaving the grand jury room they
refused absolutely to give any indica

Two short sessions were held and
the grand jury then adjourned until

[Associated Press}
GONDOKORO, Soudan, on the Upper
! Nile, Feb. 18.—Colonel Roosevelt, Ker- :
! mit Roosevelt and Edmßnd Heller, tho
i zoologist, left on a steamer today for
a final week of shooting along the river
I banks.
-Meantime B. J. Cunningham, the field
naturalist; Major Edgar A. Mcarns
and J. Alden Lorlng will remain here
Ito pack the specimens-, dismiss the
portexa and others who have accom
panied tho,Americans as helpers, and
conclude the details incident to wind
ing up of the expedition.
With the exception of the river ex
cursion, tho hunting is practically
ended. The party will leave hero about
February 25, and from then on Colonel
Roosevelt will devote himself to the
preparation of the lectures lie is to de
liver upon his arrival in Europe.
Kermlt Roosevelt and Mr. Lorlng
distinguished themselves today. A
native had fallen into tire river near
the steamer occupied by Colonel Roose
j velt and was drowned.
Kermit and Mr. Loring learned of
j the accident and in an effort to re
cover the body both dove into tho
water, heedless of the dangers firom the
j crocodiles and the swift current. They
escaped harm.
The governor of Mongalla, tho Bel
gian commandant at Lado and other
officials called on Colonel Roosevelt
during the forenoon.
Colonel Roosevelt, who is making
his hunting trip on the steamer Rodjaf,
expects to return here on the 26th. Ho

down stairs and by twisting her arm
so that she cried out In agony.
Browning attempted to evade several
questions put to him by the woman.
She asked him why he refused to allow
her to use a telephone. The witness
Hushed, looked at his fellow officers im
ploringly, as if seeking advice, and
then answered In a dogged manner
that the reason that he would not al
low her to use the telephone was be
cause she was fighting so Btrenuously
that he was unable to do so. Browning
naid that the defendant struck him
trlth a chair. When asked to describe
that particular piece of furniture he
was unable to do so, but said he was
certain that it was a chair that was
used on him.
Browning then was nskeel what rea
son he had for not allowing the ac
cused to take her money which she had
in a purse in her room. He hesitated
about answering the question and then
said she did not ask him to be allowed
to take her money. ,
Browning Forced to Answer
Browning then was' asked whether or
not ho had seen the defendant commit
any immoral act. He attempted to
sidestep the question, but Miss Fisher
refused to allow him to begin a long
harangue and plnued him down to the
question, with the result that Brown
ing admitted that he had not seen, her
do anything wrong.
George King, who was beaten on the
head with a pair of handcuffs wielded
hy Patrolman Browning, sat by Miss
Fisher during tho trial and helped her
conduct tho examination of witnesses.
When the attorney for tho prosec.ii
lion stated that he had no more wit
nesses to put on the stand Miss Fishes
arose and made a motion to dismiss
the charges on the grounds that the
prosecution had failed to prove a case.
This motion was denied by Police
Judge Frederickson. who told the de
fendant to put on her witnesses.
After several character witnesses had
testified in behalf of tho young woman
and statod that she was a good barber
and her conduct was above reproach
George King took the stand and after
relating the story of the arrest of the
young woman and tho harsh manner
In which she was treated by Browning

officer* and say nothing more about the
"Tho man came into the barber shop
of Miss Fisher," said King. "I was not
in my room, which is across the hull
from her place, at the time, and he
waited until I appeared. He told me
that he was a friend of tho officers who
arrested myself and Miss Fisher, and
if I would consent to letting the mat
ter drop and not prefer charges against
Browning and Bowe he would see. that
the cases against Miss Fisher and my
self were dismissed and that we would
I not have to go to the* expense of em
ploying 1 counsel. I became indignant
and refused, and he hurried away
without giving his name."
Following the testimony of King the
prosecution decided to introduce testi
mony in rebuttal, and Patrolman
! David Wyckoff took tin; stand and en-
I deavored to tell the jury that he heard
I two persons address Miss Fisher as
Mrs. King. The manner in which this
testimony was offered and the remote
ness of the connection with the case
was observed by the court, who told
the attorney for the prosecution that
no more testimony of that nature was
wanted, and the case went to the jury.
Miss Fisher, after the jury pro
nounced her free of the charges pre
ferred against her, declared that Bhe
would prefer charges aguinst the ar
resting officers and have them explain
to the police commission their actions
in mistreating her and placing her un
der arrest.

SAN ANTONIO, Tex., Feb. 18.—What
is claimed to be the largest orchard
ever planted in one continuous tract is
now being laid out in La Salle county,
some forty miles south of this city.

square miles. Among the fruits to be
raised are apples, pears, peaches,
oranges, limes, lemons and fig». Of
the latter nearly a thousand acres will

these parts. About 600 acres of the
land will be userl for the raising of
berries and vegetables.
The tract is owned and will be ope
rated by the Altito Orchard and Pre
serving company, recently chartered at
Austin. A large cannery will be erected
on the land within a few months. To
make the land profitable while the trees
are reaching maturity sugar cane and
vegetables will be grown. A contract
for the installation of the Wiggins sys
tem of sub-irrigation, which Is to cover
the entire tract, has already been let,
and a survey of a railroad connecting
with the International & Great North-
eru at Cotulla has been made.

Fort Sam Houston Officer Discusses
Probable Development of
SAN ANTONIO. Tex., Feb. 18 —
Speaking of the usefulness of the aero
plane as a military means. Lieutenant
V. D. Foulois of the United States sig
nal corps, in charge of an aeroplane at
Fort Sam Houston, said that the
Wright brothers were now working on
a muffler that would effectively deaden
the noise now made by the motors used
in their machine, and that an instru
ment was being perfected that would
make it possible to receive wireless
messages on an aeroplane in flight.
The impression prevails among army
officers that Improved to this extent
the aeroplane will become of great
importance. The noise of the motor
would make it extremely doubtful that
the machine could be used effectively in
reconnoiterlng either by day or by
night for this reveals its presence
when other factors might still keep it
hidden. According to Lieutenant Fou
lois it will be quite possible to send, as
well as receive, wireless messages from
the aeroplane, it being in this respect
the superior of the dirigible balloon,
experiments having shown that the
electric sparks of the wireless have a
tendency to explode the gas in the bal
loon, a condition that does not exist in
the aeroplane.
PITTSBURO, Feb. 18.—Frank S.
Frazier of Oil City telegraphed John
Jenkins of Charlerol last Monday that
he dreamed Jenkins was elected a Jus
tice of the peace by twenty-seven
votes. At Tuesday's election Frazier's
dream came true, even to the number
27, but Robert P. Fitzgerald, Jenkins-
Democratic opponent, contests the
election on the ground that the ballot
boxes were tampered with.
