Demands That Taft Can
cel Cunninhmi Alas
ka Coal Cilaims
Washington, Jan. J 1. President
Taft was appealed to oday by form
er Forester Glfrord PLnehot and his
brother, Amos Pinchot. to cancel im
the so-called Cunningham Alaskan
coal claims.
In a voluminous brief filed with
the president, in .accordance with per
mission given In a letter written to
them by Secretary Norton' on Novem
ber 29," Mr. Pinchot and. his bi other
contend that the record In the case
"abundantly proes tjiat the claims
aro Illegal and that fjrom the begin
ning the claimants hae cont-pired to
defraud the government." The brief
says that resort to alqourt for a (re
hearing of the case iFjIiecessary to:se- (
cure justice and proBct the peoplejs I
property. I
The brief contlnuBh' "The ' caso j

should bo cancelled By the Ffreside'iit

tho present record fuid rpliec the
executive departmer of responsibil
it for failure to have ho case against
the claimants fully resented by at
torneys of experienceand ability and
for omitting to profee all the evi
dence of fraud avjable." declares
tho brief after charrfg that "In spite
of the clearness of Q existing proof
we boliove it to bour public duty
to point out that ,e whole of the
case againU-' - falmants has not
been presented."
Denounces Gggcnr.ims,
"The evidence ii this j;ase ?oes
much furthor than to establish tho
fraud of attempting by subtorfuge to
acquire from the government more
coal land than th law Allows. It
shows that from ho beginning the
claimants acted wib the definite and
sustained intention of defeating tho
purpose and essentkl spirit 0f tho law
the spirit and prposo io prevent
monopoly, and secne coniLetitive de
velopment of tho ntion's resources."
Regarding tho efect of iionooly in
Alaska the brief siys: I
"It is evident that an enefflmous sav

ka, to the whole northwest ! to tho
United States naj if onlyBese coal

records and stablients. shows that '

"Second The q0z of accounts of J
the Cunningham group and the reports

claims fare one property, owned by

Chicago, Jan. 2. Over 15,000 people
were fed yesterday in a New Year's
i dinner gieu Vj "the Volunteers of
Rockefeller, Jr., " Says
Forget Your Mistakes
and Failures
Now York, Jan. 2, "Forget your
mistakes and failures of the old year
and start the New Yotir anew."
That was the New Year's counsel of
John D. Rockefeller, Jr., to his Bible
class in the Fifth avenue Baptist
"Forget everything that is futile and
depressing' said Mr. Rockefeller,
"and begin 1911 with hope and cour
age. The beautiful prayer of the Epis
copal church says we arc all miser
able sinners, but, when we have once
recognized our sins, let us ask for
the forgiveness and forget them. I
can see no good In sitting in .sackcloth
and ashes and brooding over them.
"As for our failures, let us turn
them into the fundation for our suc
cesses The dividing line between fail
ure and success may often be simply
the width of a hair.
"Have a definite purpose and stick
to It. Aim at self-mastery. Don't
eat what is not good for you; don't
drink what is going to harm you Be
master of yourself."
Chicago, Jan. 2. John W. Cowhey,
head freight checker for the Illinois
Central Tailroad at South. Water
street, was forced to retire with the
old year, after having spent forty-six
years and three months In the employ
of the company. During that time ho
had held but ono position that of
freight checker. Cowhey, who is 72
1 years old. cried when told ho must
1 resign and accept a pension.
I "I still can work. I am able to do
1 as much as ever I did Please let me
stay," ho pleaded. "The old freight
, house Is the only place -where I am
happy. I won't know what to do if
, I have to sit at home all day."
Before he would write out his res
ignation, ho secured a monthly pass
good on the suburban trains of the
road, so that4 he can ride down to tho
freight house whenever he gets lonesome.
Portland, Ore., January 2 Not
withstanding the annual convention of
tho National Woolgrowers" union does
not begin here until Wednesday, men
prominent in all branches of the wool
Industry are arriving In Portland in
large numbers.
I Apparently the tariff law will be the
main subject before the convention
nnd from the number of men repre
senting the manufacturers who will
attend and have asked for -places on
the program, it seems that a strong
effort is going to bo made to form a
' defensive alliance between the grow-
I ers and manufacturers to fight a re
duction in the present tariff, either
on wool or on woolen products I
In conjunction with the convention,
' a show of blooded sheep and goats will
be held, and this promises to be one

New York Now Has a
Democrat For
Albany, N. Y., Jan. 2. John Alden
Dix, a Democrat, was inaugurated gov
ernor of Now York stato at noon today.-
He succeeds Gov. Horace White,
-who became chief legislative last Oc
tober when Governor Charles E.
Hughes, resigned to become an asso
ciate justice of the supreme court.
There was a brilliant gathering, in
the assembly chamber, which had
been appropriately decorated for the
occasion, Gov. Wliito relinquishing tho
office of chief magistrate to Gov Dix,
the first Democratic governor to as
sume, office In eighteen years. The
governor then delivered his inaugural
address. He said in part:
"The end of all government should
be the preservation of true liberty
that liberty which guarantees to ev
erv man the fullest measure of indi
vidual right consistent with a proper
maintenance of the rights of all oth
ers and at the same time preserves
and maintains the collective rights of
all of the members of the state.
"Under our constitution such liberty
we possess in New York. It must be
our constant aim to so strengthen and
extend the legislature of the personal
and inalienable rights by the Individ
ual as to bring to the stato the
greatest growth and highest develop
ment of which our citizenship and re
sources aro capable.
"I am succeeding to the governor
ship when business training and un
derstanding seems absolutely essen
tial to the proper administration of
public affairs.
"Great as ,are the public resources
of our commonwealth, expenditures
and outgo have grown in a measure
out of all proportion to the revenue of
the state and we seem committed to
nn outlay, which will not alono tax to
its fullest uxtcnt our income,-but de
mand that we draw on tho future in a
way which. n my opiuiou Is of very
doubtful wisdom."
Des Moines, Jan. 2. The Iowa rail
road commission toduy ordered a re
duction of from five cents to 20 cents
per hundred pouuds iu maximum ex
press rates for interstate shipments
by the Adams, American, (Jroat Nor
thern. Pacific, United States and
Wells-Fargo express companies. t
The commission holds that tho ex
press companies doing business in
Iowa are "taking an excessive and un
conscionable profit " I holds that
eighty per cent of the sum of local
charges of express companies is a fair
and reasonable charge for a joint rate
and, after March 30, such shall be
the basis of joint rntey in Iown. The
commission holds there are many dis
criminations iu the express business.
The decisions follow the complaints
