Fisher Sanford Harris is dead
After a period of slight improve

suffered a severe relapse yesterday
afternoon and died at 8 30 oclock
last night conscious to the last
breath Those who stood about him
say that he died smiling and peace
ful
Surrounded by lifelong friends and
members of his family and the whole
city hanging tense on the latest news
from Iris bedside he smiled the rec
ognition that a longlost voice denied
and made it known that he was
aware of the approach of death Sev
eral minutes before the end he indi
cated his desire to be placed in a
chair where he died with no tremor
nor any sign of pain or struggle
Death was due to laryngitis complicat
ed with tuberculosis of the throat
Two years ago Mr Harris strained his
ocal chords In Ills famous speech at
Denver before the Dry Farming con
greSII The peoch bugltthe oonress
to Salt Lake but FlSh1 IItiiis returned
with his brilliant career as an orator for
k eva shattered by the lose of his voice
s Learned spedallsts told him the strain
was but temporary and that he would
recover his speaking ptter A year ago
suh proved to be the ease and for the
brief space of three months he again
a fought to assume his title as the great
est orator and pUblic speaker of the
west Last taprlng the disease coming
on again with complications forever
blighted his hopes and he grew steadily
oare the fflfeUon catialng a general
11 ydral breaJmown
Early jn October as a last resort he
went with Mrs Harris to New York to
corsult with Dr Janewell a famous
throat specialist Within one week he
returned home with the specialists ver
dirt that he might live three months or
re might die within ten day
His ondltlon was kept from the public
for tar the general concern would af
fect his spirit Medical aid being de
6talred of Christian Science was called
Into use and the little family took new

kept his loved ones cheerful and al
though fully aware of his condition

RICHARD A BALLINGER
Secretary of the Interior
11 T PROMOTS
LANDVALUES
Richard A Ballinger Secre
tary of Interior Discusses
His Action in Cancelling the
Garfield Land Withdrawal
DECLARES HIS ORDER
WAS WHOLLY PROMOTIVE
Cabinet Officer Says That His
Withdrawals Protected Fifty
Per Cent More Power Sites
Than Garfields Action
BLAMES CORRESPONDENTS
Washington Nov 7My cancel
lation of the Garfield withdrawal of
a million and a half acres and the
substitution therefor of a withdrawal
order withholding from settlement
location or entry of 30COOO acres
was wholly promotivenot subver
siveof the conservation policy It
was the next logical step in the prose
cution of the policy of Gonserving the
water power on the federal domain
and one which Secretary Garfield
must have taken had he remained in
office
The first order was a blanket with
drawal Issued to meet an emergency
and without taking time to ascertain just
where the power sites were located In
telligent prosecution of the policy de
manded that as soon as posible there
after these sites be locate and the lands
not needed to protect tl1am be restored
to entry
This statement was made today by
Judge R A Ballinger secretary of the il1
tenor when asked for an explanation Jf
his widely dlllCulHied revocation ot the
Garfield order
That the Garfield withdrawal Wat a
tentative and emergency order Is Obviojg
from some at the facts neeted with It
continued the secretary For examplc
there were a number of Instances where
land thirty and tblrtyI mlle from thE
streams was withdrawn from settlement
under that order AgaIn portions of tl
streams were not withdrawn at all Take
the case of the Owyhee river In Oregon
forty miles of It was skipped entlf V
while another thirty miles where the
stream Is almost level and ho water power
could be developed was Included Then
again many thousands of acres whlh
had been patentedthat is had passed
oompletely from the possession ot th
governmentwere Includid You must
see therefore that It would be an un
warranted reflection on Secretary Gar
fIeld to assume that he would not have
done precisely what I did ascertain as
soon as practicable where the power Sltf
were actually located ana Issue a new
order withdrawIng them from settlement
and restoring to entry all lands not need
ed for that purpose
Question Is Put
otr Secretary It is asserted that you
first revoked the Garfield order about
April 7 and did not issue your new order
until May 1 and that opportunity WhC
thus lorded to those who would secure
i possession of the water sites to do so in
the Interim Is that correct
That Is only partly correct The with
drawal of more than a million acres not
needed to conserve the power sites raised
a storm of protest On investigation I
found that these protests were warrant
ed I found further that by utilizing the
geological survey Instead of the reclama
tion service which had been employl
by my predecessor I could secure acc
rate Information as to the location f
the power sites On consultation with the
legal officers of my department 1 found
that I could make withdrawal orders rpf
reactive that Is that I could Issue WiT I
drawal orders later which would efttolt
ally protect any power sites within ayv
entries which might haY lwen made 1n
the Interim The reclamation eerykf
when caned on for Information as to lli8
actual location of power sites repurtd
that they did not possess aTIY and rpcolTI
mended that the lands withdrawn i It
opened to entry without th usual notk
as the lands had been withdrawn onb
short time Omission of tn notice is op
tional with the secretary nd not a legs
requirement The rltroactlvf provision or
the subsequent wthdratah optratrl
completely to conserve the sites even r
Ing the Interim A5 J hap siid befor
not a single power site has passed out sf
the possession of the governmrnt durln2
I this admin < tratton
I As a matter of fact the withdrawals
ordered by me protettd i I per cent more
