„...!;■: [Associated Press! -
WASHINGTON, Feb. — With Glf
-11 ford Pinchot on the witness
■■/ stand the Ballinger-Pinchot in
quiry entered its second phase today.
The dismissed chief forester, before
being sworn, dramatically declared that
when his story had been told the coun
. try would demand a verdict "In har
mony with the general conviction that
the secretary of the interior has been
„ ,■ unfaithful to.the public, whose prop
,., - erty he : has endangered, and to the
■■resident, whom he has deceived."
'■■."», L.' R. t Glavls, the Cunningham coal
i . claims and Attorney Brandels all stood
aside , to * make room for Pinchot, for
', , Attorney, George , Wharton Pepper, his
personal counsel. and for his story of
'•' Secretary Balllnger's dealings with the
■. water power sites of the public do
:* main. -v, -.: . . • ■
'..'-' Pinchot accused Secretary Ballinger
,'.• of having made an explanation of his
!'-•"":'conduct to the president that was "es
sentially false." He charged him with
. being i a "dangerous enemy to - . con
'■■ " servation." He charged him with hav
ing made a statement shown by undis
•r' '■■ puted documentary evidence "to be ab
solutely false in three essential partic
■ ulars." He charged him with having
"wilfully deceived the president" and
of being disloyal to the president.
f.-^-.'v '.-:->j I\i i Full of Sensations ■
", Mr. Pinchot's first hours on the wit
; ness stand were as replete with sen
sation as had been promised, and the
suffocating crowd in the hearing room
hung intently upon every word that
fell from his lips. A trifle nervous at
first. Mr. Pinchot soon became accus
tomed .to his surroundings and main
tained a! confident poise thereafter.
« His recital had not progressed far,
however," when there came an objec
tion ; from Mr. ' Balllnger's attorney as
to the witness repeating conversations
with President Taft. It was contended
that the relation of these conversations
would put the president in an attitude
where he would either have to remain
silent i or else appear before the com
mittee as a witness, which it was de
clared tj wo .'ld mbe •■•. undesirable. The
question was "argued for some time
and in his statement of the matter^ .he
attorney for Mr. Pinchot admitted that
President Taft. in a letter written sub
sequently to the conversation, had de
'■': clared >■ his recollection of wha* trans
. pired at the Interview differed in some
particulars from that of Mr. Pinchot.
The matter was put over for consider
ation by the committee and it is ex
pected a. decision will be _ announced
g when the next session is held Tuesday
V morning. ■'•'- ■ .*.-.:.,'.
1., : r,- Glavis Is Eulogized i
/■". Mr Pinchot followed up the vigorous
. : attack made on Secretary Ballinger In
his opening statement by declaring he
; fully believed in Special Agent Glavis
*• ' and was convinced that Glavls had said
what was true. He characterized Glavls
- as "a faithful public servant," and de
° clared • the j facts • which he presented
■ ■ "proved that. Mr. Ballinger had been
" unfaithful to his trust as the guardian
■ - of public property of enormous Value.
The * conservation movement ~. begun
under the administration of President
Roosevelt i was progressing splendidly
.- in to the time President Taft and Sec
■ retary I Ballinger took office, declared
Mr. Pinchot.
... He declared that ,in " less than a
" -■* month', thereafter . Secretary Ballinger
" -.-practically had broken the backbone of
"• the : central , idea ;of ! the conservation
•s:> movement by restoring previously with
• ■':'■", drawn water power sites to the public
'i/;- domain and laying them open to prl
£:| vate appropriation ', and ', monopolistic
*» Pinchot declared when the resto-
; rations were made Mr. Ballinger gave
| ,;no point that he withdrew the power
"* sites, and "that as a matter of fact ho
'did'not re-withdraw any of them until
: after Mr. Pinchot had gone to the pres
ident and had made a vigorous protest.
,'" No Investigations Made
' •': ; i The \ restorations ; by • Mr. " Ballinger
were made without any investigation of
The subject whatever, said Mr. Plnchy,.
and he charged the secretory with hav
ing deliberately ordered officers of the
reclamation service, against their will,
to recommend that some of the restora
1* tlons should be made. •

WOne of the most dramatic incidents of
' the day was left for tire last half hour
of the session, i when Mr Pinchot de
■ ',-•." clared there -was no such decision by
J''4the comptroller of the treasury as had

Secretary Plans for Mam

i 32000 Tons
WILL COST $18,000,000
Warship to Outclass Com
pletely Great Britain's
Dread naughts
—"" [Associated Pressl
WASHINGTON, Feb: 26—Secretary
Meyer is said to have announced
before the house naval commit
tee plf'jti for building a world's record
breaking battleship of 32,000 tons, cost
ing $18,000,000, and for making the
United States the leading naval power.
Members of the committee said the
secretary's radical plans were favorably
received by the committee. The sec
retary did not refer to naval strength
in number of ships or armament, but
to various features of improvement, of
the efficiency of ships and guns. ' ,
■ The construction of the proposed
giant battleship Is delayed until next
year because the naval experiments
with 14-Inch guns have not been com
pleted, and the department desires to
know the result of full experiments. ,
Tentatively, it is planned to arm this
great battleship with a battery of
fourteen'l4-inch guns of the latest
type. ; . - -. •«.
To Enlarge Dry Docks
The i secretary said his plans for en
largement of all the drydocks of the
country, as outlined to the committee
some weeks ago, were made in con
templation of the great enlargement of
the battleships, and he wanted the
docks built to accommodate ships of
great size. ._■■- •* ■-'. --
It was tentatively agred today that
the naval increase this year, based on
the secretary's recommendations, shall
be as follows: ' -■ -I " ■'' ' fte
Two 27,000-ton -battleships, equipped
with 12 or 14 inch guns; one repair ship,
two colliers and five submarines. , '
The submarines. are for the Pacific
coast and are the first of the fleet of
those vessels which will be provided In
the next few years. The plan to place
ten additional submarines on the Pa
cific coast next year was considered
Defense for West Coast '
- The Pacific coast congressional dele
gation, which told the committee some
weeks ago of the practically „ defense
less condition *of f the' western " coast
against foreign warships, appealed
strongly to the members and the sub
marine fleet has been decided upon.
These submarines .will be .of the
fastest yet launched, and will be cap
able of making a speed under .water of
twelve knots an hour.
Recently the government acquired
better - knowledge than other nations
possess, it is claimed, in the steering
of these submarines, when they are
being driven at high speed.
--A member of the committee said the
government had unofficial Information
to the effect that Japan is laying the
keel of two great battleships approach
ing the 32,000-ton limit. He said the
tonnage of the great battleship.under
consideration would depend to a great
extent upon the weight of the bat
teries of the huge 14-inch guns which
would be placed on this ship. •
In Special Message to Congress, Pres.
Taft Declares Bill Drawn by
,\ Sec. Meyer Meets
' ■— — v
' WASHINGTON, Feb. ,' 26.—Young
blood in command of the navy was the
keynote of a special message - which
-President Taft today sent to congress
urging legislation for improving the
personnel of the fighting force, and to
remedy what the president termed "an
abnormal condition, the result of past
legislation." * /■"■"•:' J,
Under the existing system, officers
being trained now in command of bat
tleships and armored cruisers could not
serve as flag officers.'
The president Indorsed a bill pre
pared by Secretary Meyer, which would
promote officers to the grade of rear
admiral at an average age of 64 to 55
years, and to captain at the average
age of 46 or 47. ■ -
These changes, the president thinks,
do not provide men young enough for
the duties, but he feels they are a de
cided improvement. • :' *>«*A
The president recommended a change
to create higher ranking flag officers.
The size of the fleet .now demands two
grades above rear admiral, it l was
said In the Atlantic fleet there should
be an admiral in command, a vice ad
miral for the second squadron, and
two rear admirals for. the other two
divisions. • / _ ,-'
. Base Personnel on Tonnage
The personnel "should; be based on
tonnage. With 1,200,000 tons of ships
as Snow authorized, the I ultimate per
sonnel I would reach ' 3000 line officers
and midshipmen, and 60,000 enlisted
men. • - ... - ■--•"- '-"".- "''- .
The president believes too many of
ficers reach the rank of senior rear ad
miral and retire without adequate re
turn to the government. A sliding
scale ' of retirement pay, according to
the years of service, would be ar
ranged. ' . • ,„ ' ; ■■•
.Consideration of proper military ef
ficiency as well as a due sense of na
tional dignity and self respect as be
fitting • this great nation,' urge that
the existing situation shall cease, said
the president, > V."
.> "The wisdom of congress, urged by
the. overwhelming voice of the people
of our country, has provided us with
ships of the best quality. - It Is neces
sary ' that , ■ our ' personnel ?of officers

Ultimate Effects Deadly as Strychnine
but Changing to Symptoms of .
-\. Illness Confusing In Their
Developments •- '
[Associated Pressl i ...
- KANSAS CITY,' Feb. 26.—Another
poison has been found in the vlsceras
of Colonel Thomas H. Swope and
Chrisman Swope, according to a report
made to the family by Drs. Hekoten,
Haynes and Vaughn.
Announcement to this effect was
made today by one of the Swope at
torneys.-He refused to go into details
regarding • the report. Just what the
poison was is not known, but in the
language of the scientists it would be
classed as a "mask" or a "shield." ".
The doctors are quoted as saying the
poison was a type that, although Its
ultimate effects are as deadly as those
of strychnine, has the power to change
the symptoms of strychnine poisoning
so that evidences of illness displayed
are confusing in their developments.
■ Contradictory • to. the statement . of
Chessin Hatred Chase Jordan, the ne
gro "yarb" man, who administered to
the Swope family," J. M. Tutt, formerly
a - salesman for a manufacturing
chemist of Kalamazoo, testified today
that Jordan at one time had medicine
in his office that contained poison. ,
Tutt said, when giving his deposition
In I Dr. Hyde's slander suit, ■ that jon
July 8 he sold Jordan 5000 tablets con
taining among other Ingredients three
grains of acetanilid . each, and 5000
pills, each of which contained ' one
eighth of a grain of strychnine.
In giving his deposition In the suit
recently Jordan became indignant
when asked if his medicines contained
any poison. He said he compounded
them from ' roots and herbs. Asked
how he knew , whether they were poi
sonous or not, he replied:
"I taste them myself, and If they
don't hurt me they certainly won't
injure my patients."
Attention ■ was drawn to - the white
tablets and pills Jordan gave to the
Swope, family by Mrs. B. C. Hyde. ln

AN unusual international, romance,;

its two principal actors, both of
Los Angeles, , claim' It, Involves "no

marriage at Laguna, N. i M., of I Rev.
Joseph Kenichl lnazawa, pastor of the
Japanese Presbyterian church *at * 920 J
West Tenth street, to Miss Kate Alice
Goodman, a ; well known and J highly;:
educated white, woman who for several,
years has been active as a Christian
worker and Instructor among the Jap
anese missions of Los Angeles, Chica- j
go and New York, but who until a few
days ago has been for several' months
a teacher In a Japanese school at Mon- I
eta.' --. •-:-•---'■-' er C-Z^^
■i Contrary to the custom In such mat
ters Mrs. lnazawa makes no pretense 1
that llt was a case of "love lat I first
sight," or that she was guided 1 in" ac
cepting the Japanese as - her husband I
by . any X heedless k affection. f■; Neither j
does she designate it I"a | marriage lof I
convenience." - In 5 a statement i which
she wrote for The Herald, to.be pub
lished . after her marriage, s she i hints,
rather, that her marriage to the Orien- ?
tal is due to a. conviction, founded on I
years' of careful : deliberation . and an- :
thropological research, that s, the' Jap- 'i
anese <■ make - the best : husbands, % and I
that they are more reliable and desira
ble than Caucasians. / ' ck K":.',"i"jy
- Rev. lnazawa, husband of the wom- 1
an, is well known in Los Angeles and
also In the, east, 'where : for 'twenty*
years he has been i actively identified i
with Japanese Presbyterian;; missions,
and churches. He speaks . good t Eng- 1
lish, is well versed in -the Scriptures,
and although .40 years old appears .,
much younger. • .
•.■■'■',■' Not Blinded by Love
I His | attachment for ; Miss ' Goodman,*
with whom he I left I Los Angeles j last E
week to wed, began early in their ac
quaintance, when they , were thrown j
often together instructing Bible classes.
The * young woman ' took I a ■ fancy to j
him, but from her own admission i she I
did not allow her love to blind ; her. .
•'. In this case Cupid I was I-sent I scam- S
pering away until she could read and
investigate .the advisability- and pro*-;
able ' consequences of' such" a.l union; j
and when lat last she had, convinced;
herself that the Japanese make worthy
husbands, she consented to receive his,:
attentions. ' :- < ;; •-^-:*
Hands across the 5 sea—two hearts, -
each of a different race— united ;
by a love the same in all peoples j-j two I
tongues, each born to a different lan
guage, lisped their ■ story in the same
Old accents borne from the Garden of..
Eden down through the centuries.
It was the same old story,' the same f
old love, but it was founded, they In
sist, on knowledge and understanding
—it was a scientific result of ; many :
kinds- of research. - ■ -,' • ■ •:■'• • •'■ -;'.;.
The woman hesitated. She had first
to convince herself that such a union
could be felicitous; and, ■< poring
through many volumes «of : statistics
and philosophy, until she ; had \ found ;
the ethics to confirm her hope—
theory to Justify her action—she defied
the world, hastened with her Japanese
sweetheart to New Mexico and , there
became the wife of lnazawa—the Occi
dent and the orient united. ; '
Mrs. lnazawa Is positive I she will I
not regret her step. Speaking of her?
husband, she refers to him as the one 3
person in whose lifework she Is Inter
ested—the one among millions designed
by destiny to share her lot ■ and - aid »
her in her religious duties. *- ,-;: •'£■:'?£
• "And I am happy," she said, just be
fore she left Los Angeles. "Say for me I
that I am happy. I don't > care i what
the world thinks. Joseph: and 'I are
happy. He will make me a good hus
band."'-'. ■.; -■,';*.^''' "-a
Believing that to her friends, how-1
ever, she owed at least an explanation:
Mrs. lnazawa, before her departure for
New Mexico wrote the following state-1
ment, to be published In Tho Herald:
,; Bride.Elect Makes Statement JfJ
' "When the marriage of two persona 3
in humble circumstances, is given space j
on the first page of a metropolitan dally
the only inference to be drawn is that i.
such marriage Is regarded •as sensa- 1
tional in character. When the hitherto 8
law abiding members of a community
leave the state in order to consummate I
a legal marriage a decent) regard I for j
the opinions of mankind would seem to j
warrant* a word of explanation. s. The $
following statement is therefore; very !j
