Washington Dec 30Now that Dr
Cook has been pushed overboard from
the ship of responsibility by the once
credulous Dane and the CookPeary
controversy has lost its popularity as
main attraction the spotlight frill for
the next few months at least settle
upon Secretary of the Interior Bal
The BalllngerPinchot controversy
over the conservation of the nations
natural resources is to be thrashed out
by a congressional investigation All
brands of rumors are afloat as to who
is tn wet crushed In the root exoosure
and comment is rife n as to what atti
tude in the alignment of forces Bwana
Tumbo will take Both attackers and
attacked claim to have his approval
The Pinchot clan is loudly proclaim
ing that it is the only original genuine
society for the enforcement of the
ROoseveltian policy of conservation and
that it has the official endorsement of
the former executive The Ballinger
forces publicly championed by Presi
dent Taft make a similar claim
Spokesmen for the secretary of the
interior say that he was a Roosevelt
discovery brought from the far west
to be made commissioner of the land
office and then promoted to be head
of the interior department when Mr
Taft succeeded to the office and poli
cies of Roosevelt
James R Garfield who was Roose
velts secretary of the interior and
chief reformer of the iniquities of the
public land system that were brought
to light in the west was sponsor for
the Seattle man A new land commis
sioner was needed Garfield who as
a member of the Roosevelt tennis cabi
net was mighty of influence recom
mended Baliinger The President took
kindly to the suggestion
West for Ballinger
Ballinger for a year and at great
apparent financial sacrifice as he left
unattended a splendid law practice
guided the affairs of the land office
When he was named as secretary of
the interior the west to a man loudly
sang his praises and President Taft
was congratulated on his selection
Then came the Glavls charges con
cerning the Cunningham coal lands of
Alaska a couple of irrigation and con
servation congresses in the western
states and a division of the solid senti
ment that had been behind the interior
department chief
The career of the man who is the
storm center of a tempest that Con
gress will attempt to clear is like
that of many Americans who by their
own endeavor have risen from ob
scurity and commonplace position to
offices of credit and honor
Richard Achilles Baliinger was born
in 1S68 at Boonesboru Iowa His
father a Kentuckian had studied law
in Abraham Lincolns office at Spring
field Ill The father naturally was
an ardent abolitionist during the
stormy days leading up to the Civil
war Baliinger Sr served through the war
and was promoted for signal bravery
on the battle field When the war was
over Bellingers father was mustered
out a colonel He was appointed post
master at Vlrd n Ill by President
In 1888 the family moved to Lamed
Kan where young Ballinger was in
the saddle and on the range a good
portion of the time his father being
engaged in the cattle business
Attended Kansas University
Having digested a Kansas common
school education young Baliinger at
tended the state university at Lawrence
and later went to Washburn college at
Topeka It was while pursuing his studies
there that Mr Baliinger met United States
Senator Ingalls of Kansas who urged
him to attend Williams college In Massa
chusetts He followed the advice of his
patron and graduated at Williams in the
class of 3884
The law appealed to young BaUinger
and immediately after graduation he went
to Chicago where he entered the law
office of S Corning Jjidd In 1886 he
was admitted to the bar and moved to
Kankakee Ill where he hung out his
Subpsequently he was appointed city
attorney of Kankakee and after serving
one term he moved to New Decatur Ala
where he wan appointed to a similar po
sition One term in office there and
young Ballinger was on the move again
This time he removed to Port Townsend
Wash arriving there during the winter
of 1889
Three years previously he had married
at Lee Mass Miss Julia A Bradley a
graduate of Wellesley college
Secretary Bal inser has two sons Ed
ward who is 19 and a student at Wil
llama college and Richard 10 who attends
tends a public school in Seattle
The old saying that a rolling stone
gathers no moss is disproved in the case
of the interior department chief While
he was still a young man the five states
Iowa Illinois Kansas Alabama and
Washington had known him as a resi
dent and he had schooled and married in
the great state of Massachusetts
In the great northwestern state Balling
er struck his goal At Port Townsend he
became the law partner of John M Scott
brotherinlaw of the late President Har
rison For four years he was superior
court Judge but in 1987 found it was
time to move
He did not quit Washington moving to
Seattle where he became the senior mem
ber of the law firm Ballinger Ronald I
Battle In 1XM he was elected mayor of
hit city Two years later his term hay
Ing expired ho went back to the law
Thanked by Roosevelt
In 1807 President Roosevelt made him
commissioner of the land office When he
resigned the office having made many
changes that the then secretary of the
interior Garfield declared to have bet
tered the serce President Roosevelt in
a personal letter thanked him for his
services He was back at his law prac
tice when President Taft made him a
member of his official family
Before the break of the BalllngerPln
chot squabble the interior department
secretary was repeatedly urged to run lor
governor of his state He always re
fused to consider such preferment He
is the author of several law books and
has held many positions of honor in the
Republican ranks of his state
He was chairman of the Washington
delegation to the Republican national
convention in Chicago which nominated
Mr Tai for the presidency and as a
member of its committee on resolutions
took an active part in the framing of the
platform In the campaign he was a
member of the advisory committee and
as such actively assisted in the work of
the election forces
One of Secretary Ballingers friends
commenting upon his life today said
Secretary Baliinger did not seek his
present office He acepted the portfolio
of secretary of the interior at great per
sonal sacrifice for before accepting he
withdrew from his law firm and sur
rendered his connection with the business
concerns with which he had been iden

Sme Sidelights
An interesting sidelight on the light
which Germany and England openly or
secretly are making tor the supremacy
of the sea is apparent in the following
paragraph one quoting from an Eng
lishman prominent in naval affairs the
other from a speech by the kaisers sec
ond son I
Sir John Bingham president of the
admiralty division of the high court
in the course of his speech at a banquet
of the Shipbrokers Benevolent society
recently said Germany has no coast
line or foreign possessions of any conse
quence Then why Is it this large fleet
German is i held like a pistol at our
heads within a few miles of our
We with our extensive coasts and
our colonies spread over the whole
world need an enormous navy Ger
many does not I am unable I am aor
ry to say to find any explanation of the
i existence of that navy except this
that it Is held In reserve for future use
I and for a use which cannot be agree
able to us
Prince Bttel Frederich the kaisers
second son speaking at Berlin after
the recent launching of a Dreadnought
battleship said
The sytematic and regular develop
ment of our high seas fleet Is the best
guarantee for peace and the tranquil
expansion of our Industry The fleet
is becoming ever more the vehicle of the
German imperial idea
Our countrymen across the seas are
I best aware of that and this city will
I gladly corroborate my words Without
sparing their lives and health by day
and night under blazing suns and in
winters cold officers and men have
been inspired by only one wish name
ly to reach the highest point of readi
ness for war
Aim to Be Ready
Although the Germans themselves say
that they have no intention of attack
Ing England In the future the kaisers
son does not hesitate to say that the
aim of the Germans Is to reach the
highest point of readiness for war
This is significant enough In itself but
in addition the estimates show that in
the next few years the British navy will
be increased by about 15 per cent and
the German navy by about 20 per cent
Is there more than one possible conclu
sion which can be drawn as to the atti
tude of Germany toward England 1
With the news that exPrealdent
Roosevelt Is about to seturn from his
hunting trip into the interior of British
East Africa comes the official report
that a royal party composed of the
Duke and Duchess of Connaught Prin
cess Patricia and Prince Arthur will
d part from here in the third week of
January on a journey to Nairobi
According to present arrangements
the duke will go on a big game shooting
expedition similar to the one Roosevelt
conducted This is not the sole pur
pose the duke has in mind he is also
desirous of seeing the progress that has
been made in British East Africa since
his visit there in 19M
Three years ago the Duke of Con
naught with the Duchess and Princess
Patricia visited Nairobi Uganda and
the Great Lakes and was greatly Im
pressed by the work accomplished by
the administration and the railway en
gineers in spite of enormous difficulties
Tunnel Contemplated
After four years of continuous labor
giving employment to 1800 men the
great tunnel connecting Argentina and
Chile has recently been completed
Work went on during those four
years night and day regardless of Sun
days or Holidays and the accomplish
ment is regarded as one otthe wonders
of the age in engineering work
The tunnel is 3380 yards long and is
about 11000 feet above the sea
The tunnel runs below the pass of
Cumbre beginning at Las Cuevas in
Argentina and ending at Caracoles In
The railway will at once be construct
ed and it will probably be possible for
a train to pass through the tunnel next
London contractors and engineers had

any suspicion of theatricality Mr
Lascelles and his assistants are there

picturesque and novel
While the spectator is gazing on the
ancient Britons returning from the
hunt a dense white cloud will rise slow

when it passes away another scene will
be presented
The cloud curtain Is a development
of the steam curtain Invented by Wag

his own works At the evening per
