Harper to Be Basis of Suit for Custody PARENTALLOVEWINS Woman Toils Long in Hope of Recovering Tots from Relatives WORKING day after day at the hardest kind of labor in order to obtain money enough to bring her family from Nashville, Term., to Los Angeles, where her two children had been sent by their father pawling his efforts to obtain a divorce, Mrs. Suslo A. Roberts arrived hero yester day morning and' tomorrow will Insti tute proceedings, she says, to obtain her little ones, who urn now at the home of Rev. and Mrs. E. J. Harper, 822 Wilton place. •■ The story told by Mrs. Roberts yes terday reveals a triumph of mother love over hardships well calculated to daunt the hardiest. Domestic troubles, In which un unsuccessful attempt at divorce was made by her husband, were followed by the taking away of her boy and girl by Mrs. Harper at his Instigation, she declares, and month after month the plucky woman was de prived of their society. Mrs Roberts la the Blster-ln-law of the, wlfo of Rev. E. J. Harper, who was until recently city forester and Is a brother of former Mayor A. C. Harper. Two years ago Mrs. Harper, so says Mrs. Roberts, visited her brother In Nashville, and shortly after the children disappeared. . Mrs. Roberts and her husband were not living together at that time, as the former was seeking a divorce. For weeks, Mrs. Roberta says, she thought her children were-with their father, and not until some timo hail elapsed was she informed of their absence. She was not told with whom the little ones were living, and was kept in complete ignorance of their whereabouts. . Tolls In Laundry After his unsuccessful efforts ,to ob tain a divorce Mr. Roberts was rejoined by his wife, but even then the children were not returned to Nashville. With out the knowledge of her husband, Mrs. Roberts want to work In a laundry, and month after month sho toiled to have money enough to purchase a ticket to Los Angelea, where she be liovod her children to be. ■ , Airs. Roberts arrived her« yes yd ay morning, and Immediately Bought the - Harper residence, where she felt sure somo trace of her children could be obtained. Because of being misdirected »ho walk.* fifty-two blocks before learning her mistake, »nd at this point was advised to, seek an attorney and lay her case before him. The pathos In her story appealed to Attorney George W. Pearson, and he is prepar ing to bring whatever legal action Is necessary to secure the children for their mother. Tired from her long walk on the hard pavements and worn out because of the tedious Journey from Nashvlllo to Los Angeles, Mrs. Roberts told her story yesterday. - Her youth, for she Is but 24 years old, has helped her materially to bear her burdens, and despite the fatigue resultant on the last few days, she was willing to talk of her children. "I know they are here," she declared. "For nearly two years I have missed them every day and every night, and now that they are so close I feel j can hardly wait to clasp them In my arms. But my lawyer • advises waiting until legal action can be brought to secure them, and I suppose I must do with out them until Monday. Learns They Are Here "The children were spirited i away while I was estranged from their fath er, and for four months I supposed they were with him. Then I learned they were gone and knew my only salvation was to wait. One day I in tercepted a letter to Mr. , Roberts, and from that I learned they were in Los Angeles with the Harpers, who appar ently desired to keep them. "It was then I started to work In a laundry, for I know Mr. Roberts would not give me money to 'come to Los Angeles. Day after day I toiled away without his knowledge, until finally I had enough to purchase a round trip ticket.- 1 arrived here with but little in my pocket, and felt I needed what I had, so tried to walk in search of my babies. , ■ "Now that I am here I will stay until they givo -me back my children. I have worked before and can do so again. X want my children and I will support them. I fear they have been . told they had no other parents than those with whom they are living here, for they were bo small when taken away they could not know the differ ence. But they will-know their mother once they see hef—nature will teach them that much." . Mrs. Roberts stated the children were taken from her when they were 3 and 5 years old, . respectively. The boy, »Richard Samuel, is now 7 years old, and his sister. Myrtle Annie, is two years his Junior. Mr. Roberts is much • older than his wife-. Charge False, Says Mr. Harper Rev. K. J. Harper said last night that Mrs. Roberts accusations were en tirely without foundation. "My wife did not aid in Illegally taking Myrtle and Richard." ho said. "They worn placed I" tl)O custody of their father by the law and he gave them to Mrs. Harper two years ago. at the time of his separation from his wife, to bring nil as her own. They know that their parents are living, but call us 'mother 1 nnd 'father,' and aro perfectly happy and contented in our home. The mother's accusations are untrue.

MARCH 13, V.)W. ATTORNEY FOR PINCHOT RAGES AT COMMITTEE Chairman Accuses Coun sel of Trifling with Senators HOT CLASH RESULTS Chief Engineer Davis Con tradicts Statements by Baliinger [Associated Press] WASHINGTON, March 12.—A sharp clash occurred between •Senator Nelson, chairman of the Balllnger-Plnchoi committee, and Attorney Pepper, counsel for Gilford Plnchot,' near the close of today's ses sion of the inquiry, when Mr. Nelson accused the lawyer of "trifling" with the committee. White with anger, Mr. Pepper de manded to know if that was the Judgment of the committee, and when several members exclaimed "I.et it. ; |" lie saiil a reflection which he. resented bad been cast on him, and he questioned the senators' tiwht to make such an at < usatlon. Mr. Pepper \viin referring to several letter* In the record In an endeavor to have <:hlef BHistaeer Davis of tho reclamation sei-vlce, who was on the Mann 1, refute «everal statements nt tributtd to Secretary Kallinger to the n. , i thai restoration! of eertnln lands in the ireel to public entry after they had been withdrawn under Secretary Qarneld, iifi« been made on recom mendations of the reclamation service. Chairman Nelson said he thought It was a WUMte Of time to go over ground already covered, »nd interposed an objection to the reading of the letters*, jn ea'-li Instance In which the ques tion wan put the witness repilted that Mr. Bellinger bad made % miaataU ment, "Now I have come to the point I was after," eald Attorney Pepper. Davis Explains Statement "At tho conclusion of your direct ex amination this morning you said. 'I want it. understood that I do .not wish to Insinuate In anything i have said that Secretary Balllnger has Inten tionally or consciously committed a wrong. I do not believe he has.' Will you explain your statement more fully?" Mr. Davis saM ho merely mr-ant to disclaim «ny Intimation that Mr. Bai llnßpr had committed a wrong. He referred only to his acts, he continued, and not his statements, for many of them were wrong. He did not Indi cate whether he thought Slrv-Balllnger had " '•Intentionally or * consciously" made>a mlsstatement. : Mr. Davis concluded his testimony before the committee today and was excused at the end of the afternoon, ueaslon. Ho flatly contradicted Secre tary Halllnger in several statements and said they did not agree on many reclamation - matters, although both had been and, he hoped, still were good friends. • Contradicts Baliinger Attorney Pepper read into the rec ord a letter, recently addressed to th« house committee on ways* and means by Secretary Ballinger, In support of the $30,000,000 bond issue for reclama tion work. In this latter Secretary Ballinger spoke of the hardships which had resulted to settlers on some of the projects where co-operation agreements had been entered into by former Sec retary Qarfleld. Ho also claimed that inducements had been held out to set tlers to come on the land, and that at Toluca, Mont., there had been erected a large sign board inviting settlers to come there. This sign included the statement: "Settlen can work out their pay ments." . Ballinger said he ordered th:s part of ihe sign painted over. Davis contradicted practically every statement in the Ballirrger letter. He ■aid he was with Bulllnger when he saw the sign: that no orders had been given to paint out the words, and that up t.i a few days ago they had not been painted out. The witness said there had been no co-operative agreement! or certificate" at Toluca; thai no inch signs had been erected anywhere else, and that no un due Inducement had ever been made to settlers to go into the co-operative work. At Toluca the reclamation work had 1,.., ii completed and then' was more water available than laud under culti vation. The lauds ueie public, and It was decided that they should be taken up. Tells of "Black Tent 1' Affair The witness related tho so-called "black tent" ■ affair. Ho said that un der orders of Secretary Ballinger, F. 1. Perkins of the Chicago office of the reclamation service went through the west lecturing in a. black tent .to ad vertise reclamation worK. It came to the attention of service officials that Perkins, in addition to getting a salary of $3300 a year, was receiving an allowance of $500 a month from the Harriman railway lines. The Hill lines protested, that Perkins was coming into their territory and lectur ing about projects on the Harrlman lines. ... ' , Mr. Davis said Perkins proved his fidelity to the Harriman lines by ship ping 69 per cent of material from Chi cago to Mexa, Ariz., where the recla mation service has been engaged in a project, by way of th« Harriman lines, which made the longest and most ex pensive route. Davis" said he recommended Perkins dismissal. Director, Newell did .not agree to this at first, but later wrote to Perkins and in a "polite- way. re quested his resignation. : Secretary Bal linger reprimanded Newell for inter fering in a matter which was being personally conducted by himself. " Engineers Dissatisfied At the beginning of the . afternoon session Mr. Davis told of the dissatis faction existing among the engineers of the reclamation service, because of the unsympathetic attitude of the present secretary of the interior In (ailing to promote them, although rec ommended for promotion hy the su pervising engineers. He said thai on <jpe occasion ii^ had a hard time preventing all the engi neer! in the.

Forced to Swim to Bhore SEATTLE, March 12.—Charles K. Hamilton, the air navigator, was In jured while giving an exhibition at The Meadows this afternoon by the capsizing or his Ourtiss biplane which fell with him while he was executing a fancy maneuver. Hamilton is at the hospital suffering from shock and complains of a violent pain in the head. No bones were broken. As the dosing feature of a highly successful exhibition, he. had circled the course at a height of more than 300 feet and at lower altitudes, wheel ing and dipping and gilding close to the heads of the great throng- of spec tators, Hamilton attempted a rapid de scent toward a pond several feet deep, intending to skim over the sur face as the sea gulls do. From a height of 300 feet the biplane glided gracefully to the bosom of the pond, but the man-bird miscalculated the distance and one of the planes struck the water, with the result that the machine instantly turned a somersault and fell a mass of wreckage in the pond. Hamilton disentangled himself and swam to shore, twenty l'eet distant. He was assisted to an automobile nearby and rushed to the Providence hospital.

That Hiram W., Johnson would be the candidate for governor has been a settled fact for Homo time, and the object of the meeting last night was to launch tin? boom that his adherents expect will carry him In to the gu bernatorial seat this fall. But A. J. Wallace was not selected as the candidate for lieutenant gov ernor until yesterday at noon, when at a meeting of good government ford i he was induced to accept the nomina tion.
