was sighted this morning the dock* of
San Vlncnnzo and the immacolatolla,
the arsenal and the promenade Chlaia
along the Via Caracclola were crowded.
On many houses the Italian colors
waved alongside, the Stars and Stripes.
A largo number of boats flying the
American and Italian flaps and carry
ing citizens of both countries, went
cut to meet th« steamer.
The morning *»« matchless and Mr.
Hoosevelt had a splendid view of the
hay a» the vessel drew In from the
promontory of Posllipo and the Sor
rento peninsula. In th« near distance
were Capri, Ischla and Procidla, while
Vesuvius threatening and majestic
towered over all.
An was the case whon the former
president stopped hero on his way to
Africa, there were extraordinary meas
ures taken not only to protect his per
son but to avoid any unpleasant in
cident during his stay in tho city.
As the steamer moved slowly into
th« harbor the crowds on shore burst
Into cries of '•L.ong llvo RuoKevelt! -
The excitement grow whan the states
man could be distinguished on deck.
From all sid« came salutua and cheers,
while hats and handkerchiefs and flags
were waved. It must have seemed like
a home coming to Mr. lloosevelt, for
tie American colors could be seen from
the Bay of Santa Lucia to tha heights
of the Vomero.
GIYKN GREAT WMUDOHU
The formal reception was carried out
as planned, Mr. Roosevelt receiving
first his countrymen, then the repre
sentatives of the municipality of Na
ples, after which ins acknowledged tho
popular welcome. The ride to the Kx
i-elsior hotel, where apartments for the
family had been reserved by Mrs.
Roosevelt during her earlier visit to
Naples, was accomplished without any
untoward happening.
Col. Roosevelt talked briefly with the
newspaper men, . one of whom after
ward said:
"Overflowing vitality seems to be his
dominating characteristic. . Europe
contains no such type of statesman.
After a year spent In the heart of
Africa Mr. Roosevelt returns to civili
zation with his mind so,full of things
that he does not even mention his
hunting trip, which for a man in his
position affords few parallels."

his acknowledgements, which only
served to increase the tumultuous ap
plause.
During an Intermission, students to
the number of 200 marched to the rear
of Colonel Roosevelt's box, where they
were presented to the former president
by Prof. Boggiano of the University of
Naples, who, in a graceful speech, re
called the colonel's parting injunction
to President Taft, that the greatest
problem for the United States was the
maintenance of the moral well being
and strength of the people.
Prof. Boggiano said that this was
also the greatest problem for all coun-
Coionel Roosevelt, replying, appealed
to the students to aspire to the highest
ideals, but warned them that their
aspirations must bo coupled witli prac

SAYS WITNESS IN
BALLINGER PROBE
Agent of Collier's Claimed to
Have Offered Money for
Testimony
SECRETARY TO SUE WEEKLY
Evidence Given That Missing Let
ters Were Found in Box
of Glavis
Cfipeelal to The Hera M.l
WASHINGTON, April 2.—A sen
sation developed In the congres
sional Investigation Into the
Plnohot-Balllnger affair today when H.
K. l/ovo, formerly a special Bgont of
the land office, testified that John W.
Dudley, formerly register of the land
office at Juneau, Alaska, had told him
In Juneau last February that an agent
of Collier's Weekly had Intimated to
him that "It would be worth from
$5000 to $10,000 to him" to come to
Washington to testify.
Ballinger and his attorney seemed to
put great stress on Trove's testimony
and later in tho day tho secretary an
nounced that In the. course of a short
time he would Institute a lawsuit
against Collier's Weekly aa the result
of the publications concerning him ap
pearing in that paper. The complaint
is expected to charge libel and to ask
heavy damages.
Evldentl" the investigating commit
tee was also Impressed by Love's state
ments and it has proposed summoning
Mr. Dudley to Washington to tell what
ho knows. Love was a witness sum
moned by Balllnger, but his startling
statement regarding the alleged offer
of money did,not come out until dur
ing his cross-examination by Attorney
Brandels. .
TESTIFY FOR DEFENSE
Pour other wltneses took the tand
for the defense today. Prank L. Spald
lng, former dlßburlng agent in L. R.
Glavis' office at Seattle, was called to
testify that Glavis had tried to Induce
him to cut out of an expense account
an item of $55 for typewriting in Chi
cago a report containing his charges
against Mr. Balllnger ha was prepar
ing for President Taft.
i - Mr, ■ Spaldiiiß admitted • under cross
examination that Glavis had explained
that he Intended to reimburse the gov
ernment, because he wanted for him
self two or three of the copies he had
made. .'■'••..
Miss Ella. Hhartell. a stenographer in
Glavis' office at Seattle, testified she
made for Glavis three copies of the
twenty-four missing letters that were
afterward found, it is alleged, in a box
belonging to Glavis. She identified the
three copies shown.
Miss Shartell was followed on the
stand by George A. Parks, formerly of
Denver, but now attached to the land
office In Seattle. Parks told of having
a search through the federal building
for some field note books Christensen
wanted at Portland.
Assistant Custodian O'Neill of the
federal building accompanied him.
"I looked into a big box which be
longed to Glavis," continued the wit
ness. "One of the lids on top was
loose. I saw what appeared to be a
sleeping bag and a tent and some
books. I satisfied myself that the box
contained the personal effects of Mr.
Glavis anil*l had no right to examine
them. I did not disturb the box or its
contents in any way."
Barrett W. O'Neill, assistant cus
todian of the federal building in Seat
tle, next was called. Ho corroborated
what Parks had said about the search
he had made and then told of the dis
covery of the twenty-four missing let
ters. He said Christensen had applied
to him to make a further search of
Glavis' effects. The witness said ■he
went with Christensen. They opened
the saino box in which Parks had
looked.
"I took out the sleeping bag and tent
and then the dictionary; Christensen
reached in and pulled out something.
He said: 'My God, here are those
papers that are wanted by the com
mittee and we have been looking for
them for so long.' He said some copies
of these letters had appeared in Col
lier's and I became Interested at once.
I said. 'Here, I'm up against It. I don't
want to bo drawn into this proposition.'
BALLINGER DENOUNCES
. ATTACK IN COLLIERS
New Criticism Calls Him 'Shyster'
and Causes Him to Plan
Libel Suits
WASHINGTON, April 2.—"lf they
think they can attack me with Impun
ity, they are mistaken," said Richard
A. Balllnger, secretary of the Interior,
today, referring to the publications
concerning him which are appearing in
Collier's Weekly.
He announced emphatically that he
proposed to "bring them to justice in
duo time."
The statement that he Intended seek
ing redress through the courts was
made in discussing the article in the
current Issue of Collier's, headed "Bal
linger—Shyster," in which the secretary
is accused of an "unpardonable breach
of professional honor" In connection
with a bankruptcy proceeding in the
federal district court In Seattle.
"For the malicious, villainous and un
truthful attacks, of which this Is sim
ply another chapter," he said, "I pro
pose to bring them to Justice.
"Every suggestion they make has
been thoroughly covered by testimony
and orders of the United States district
court for the district of Washington,
northern division, exonerating me from
the slightest suspicion of any lrre»Ur
larity or Impropriety."

FIX MINE WAGES
IDLENESS BRIEF
Differences of Coal Workers and
Operators to Be Patched Up
at Once Is Report
INDIANAPOLIS. April 2.—Advice*
from bituniinousMoal fields received by
Thomas L. Lewis, president of the
United Mine Workers, when he re
turned to organization headquarters
late today, satisfied him, he said, that
suspension of work in the mines pend
ing the signing of a new wage contract
butween miners and operators, would
not be long continued.
"I have not been talking strike in
Illinois," said Mr. Lewis, "and I am
not going to do anything of the sort in
western/and central Pennsylvania next
week. Operators and miners in those
three districts, in Indiana, lowa. Ohio,
western Kentucky and the louthweat
will all be discussing means of settle
ment of the questions between them
next week. The matter will have, to
work itself out, and It will work out
to the end that we will get the de
manded wage increase of 6.55 per ce.nt,
whether on work by the day or the ton.
"In Illinois the southwest and west
ern Pennsylvania, the conferences will
take longer In reaching conclusions
than in the other states, but I cannot
believe there will be a final break.
"If operators of Pennsylvania and
Ohio feared that operators in the non
union districts of West Virginia and
that neighborhood would undersell them
that objection to increasing the wages
of union miners has been swept away
by the news that In practically all of
the non-union coal fields of West Vir
ginia, Maryland and southern Pennsyl
vania operators have come out with a
raise of the wages of their miners.
This is also a plain object lesson that
the union man benefits the non-union
man."
BLACK HAND FIREBUG
THREATENS SAN DIEGO
'Send Money or I'll Use Torch

SAN DIEGO, April 2.—A letter de
manding that the city pay him any
amount of money It deems reasonable
has been received by the chief of police
from a man who declares he Is the one

Including two churches.
Unless the demand is complied with

The letter has caused a furore. Most
of the fires started by the firebug were

PITTSBURC. April I.— All or the
present and former eouncllmen, known
as the "Big Five," have now told their
stories to the graft Investigating grand
Jury.
The indictment of six banks, as cor
porations, Mini other startling Sensa
tion! are expected Monday as a*result.
The graft prosecution Is now busily
engaged preparing cases for tho trials
next week.
Charles Stewart today told the whole
truth to the grand jury; Hugh Fergu
son made a complete statement before
the inquisitorial biody; William Brand
is known to have made a full confes
sion, and the bottom has finally fallen
out of the alleged grafters' defense.
The district attorney received a let
ter today from George li. Bailey, now
in Pasadena, former member of com
mon councils, in which he says he
wishes to plead no defense to having
received bribes for his vote.
He declares he received a total of
$181.10 from John Klein for his vote
on ordinances covering street vaca
tions and city depository selections.
Bailey says he will como to Plttsburg

FORMER COUNCILMAN
SAYS HE TOOK BRIBE
[Special to The IleraM.)
PASADKNA. April B.—Oeorge Bailey
of this city, who was a member of the
I'ittshurg-Allegheny city council at the
time or' the bribery scandals now being
unearthed, admitted last night to tho
correspondent tor The Herald that he
luis confeued to District Attorney
Blakely of Allegheny county the ac
ceptance of money during his term of
office in 1908. Mr. Bailey said:
"I have confessed to District Attor
ney Blakely that I accepted money in
the palling of the city bank depository
ordinance by the Plttsburg council in
1!IO8. On one occasion 1 received $100
and at another time $81.10. The money
was given to me by John Klein, a iel
low councilman, who acted as a go
between for the interests. I do not
know the persons who furnished him
with the money. I served in the Pitts
burg-Allegheny council from the early
part of 1905 to March 1, 1908, when I
came west. I took the money in an
unguarded moment because it came
easy and I dvi not think of what it
meant. I could have had many more
dollars Just as well, for money was
free and everybody was accepting it.
I have felt guilty ever since, lor I
would not knowingly steal or accept a
bribe. I feel this will cause me to lose
my position here, and I have a wife
and five children to support and not a
cent laid by, but I am not playing for
sympathy. I feel that It is my duty
to assist In exposing the corruption in
public office in PHtsburg. Honestly,
It wan so corrupt that I did not go
near the council meetings the last few
months I was taere."

Harriman Railroad Chief Talks
Reluctantly of Need of
New Depot Here
CONSIDERING THE MATTER
'Fine,' Says Judge of City as He
Hurries Through Old
Train Shed
((\T ES, I guess you'll get some kfnrt
I of a depot, all right," said
Judge Robert 8. Lovett, presi
dent of the Harrlman railroad system,
shortly after his arrival in Los Angeles
yesterday.
But Just what kind of a depot It- will
be. Judge Lovett smilingly refused to
fay. He wouldn't even promise defi
nitely that a new depot la certain, but
merely stated "it is being considered."
"Are we not to have a union depot.
Judge Lovett?" he was asked by a re
porter for The Herald.
"A union depot?"
Judge Lovett arched his eyebrows as
If he had never heard of such a thing.
"Krl can't tell you. I am unable
to discuss it. We are looking over th»
field very carefully, you see, and It
takes time. I am looking over the
Southwestern lines and there are so
many things demanded throughout the
system that we must go carefully."
OFFICIALS WITH lOVKTT
Judge Lovett, accompanied by sev
eral high officials of the Harriman sys
tem, arrived on a special train at 3:30
o'clock , yesterday afternoon direct
from Redlands, where he visited Fri
day night with W. H. de Forest and
W. Bayard Cutting, directors of tin
Southern Pacific, who are sojourning
there for the winter. Mr. de Forest
Joined the Lovett party at Redlands
and accompanied the members to Los'
Angeles.
On the way from Redlands the party
stopped over for several hours at Riv
erside, where Judge Lovett and other
members of his party were taken In
automobiles through the orange groves.
His special train also made brief stops
at Col ton and San Bernardino.
From the Arcade depot, where Judge
Lovett's train was side-tracked, the
party was taken in automobiles to the
Hotel Alexandria.
Escorted through the Arcade station,
the railroad king had a good chance to
oßserve its barn-like appearance, as
there was a large crowd in the dilapi
dated structure waiting for trains.
BCBNTC OF DISORDER
The information bureau in the main,
waiting room had been torn out, and
lumber was scattered about promiscu
ously. Scores of men and women, bur
dened with luggage, were unable to
find seats and were Jammed against
each other. Prospective; passengers
were running to and fro trying to get
accommodations, or to find out some
thing about trains, the whole present
ing a picture of shameful lack of ac
commodations and exemplifying tho
disgraceful conditions which have made
the Southern Pacific station at Los An
geles a proverbial eyesore.
But Judge Lovett did not seem to no
tice the state of affairs in the local •
railroad yards; if he saw it, he paid no
attention to the old frame tire-trap
where passengers are herded into two
murky waiting rooms to get their first
impression of the city. :;: v'.
Judge Lovett hurried immediately to
the automobile which was in waiting
to take him to the Hotel Alexandria.
Accompanying the judge, besides W.
11. do Forrest are R. W. Goelet. a
prominent stockholder in the Union Pa
cific 'and a noted capitalist and club
man of New York; C. C. Stlllman of
New York; Julius Kruttschnitt, vlco

Hood, chief engineer; H. T. Hennessey
and H. G. Jenkins of San Francisco,
and Kpes Randolph, head of the south
western Harriman lines. The entire
party is registered at the Alexandria.
INVITED TO BANQUET
After dinner Judge, Lovett was met
at the hotel by Joseph Scott, who In
vited him to be the guest of honor at a
banquet and reception which the cham
