I This is tho solution of the problem
of higher cost of living according to
I James J Hill philosopher and master
railroad builder
Tho problem Is not local it is in
ternal said Mr Hill who was back
In New York today after his visit to
Washington and the White House
I early this week Obviously the world
i has reached an economic crisis We
are not producing foodstuffs enough
We must enlarge the farming area
of tho earth we must apply scientific
principles we must adapt ourselves
to conditions
Agriculturally speaking tho world
is not overpopulated The problem
is to relieve tho congestion In the cit
ies and scatter the unproductive pop
ulation to the farms Then when we
get them there we must teach them
new methods of farming Our pres
ent methods arc so loose and slip
shod that wo do not get half the good
out of our tillable land
I
There Is no quick relief to tho i
present crisis The necessaries of life
will not bo cheapened to the consum
er until we add a million or so per
sons to our agricultural population
Until the movement from the city
back to tho country starts President
Taft and congress can do little toward
lowering tho coat of living

NO FIGHT
fOR UTAh
Jeffries Says Gov Sprys
Talk Has Eliminated
Salt Lake
Portland Ore Jan 28Tl1at the
JeffriesJohnson flght will probably be
hold in San Francisco In view of the
opposition of Governor Spry to hold
ing It in Utah and that Johnsons
backing down only could call off the
fight are declarations made by Jim
JoffrlcK during tho last few days
since arriving In tho neighborhood of
the Oregon state line
Jeffries will arrive here today Ho
will go from Seattle he says to Chi
cago whore his wife Is sick in a hos
pital
In only one of three talks Jeffries
has given out since arriving In this
city has he Intimated that there may
be no fight and In that ho says that
It will occur unless Johnson hacks
down
At Boise Idaho Jeffries declared
in a certain speech that he Intended
to give Johnson tho worst beating a
man ever got He said that he Intends
to tear Into Johnson from the first
tap of tho gong and never let up on
him until he hits tho canvas for the
count Ho also suld that he believes
Johnson is afraid of him and mado
some rathor uncomplimentary refer
ences to the present holder of tho
championship
At La Grande Orc Jeffrics atton
lion Tvas calfed to recent newspaper
reports that there Is considerable
doubt as to whether the fight will ever
occur and that his intention to return
to tho east after visiting Seattle Is
I taken to mean nothing else In reply
Jeffries said
The report of my calling off the
fight now 01 later Is the Invention of
some unscrupulous reporter Iwlll re
turn east after leaving Seattle but
I only to meet my wlfEWho is 111 In
j a Chicago hospital I will bo in Los
Angeles not later than February 15 to
I begin training for the fight That
gives mo plenty of time All I need
is rounding Into condition
Jeffries added that It is uncertain
where tho flght will be hold but in
view of the opposition of Governor
I
Spry of Utah bo thought Sail Fran
I cisco would be the scene
I Continuing he said
All this newspaper talk about
Gleason and Richard Is without foun
dation They are and always have
been the best of friends
I am going to see this thing
through to a finish said Jeffries In
I conclusion unless Johnson backs
down July 4 T will again demonstrate
the superiority of the white race
Pendleton was the next place that
tho big pugilist stopped Here he was
decidedly uncommunicative About
all that could bp drawn from him was
I the statoment that he knew nothing
of any reported estrangement between
Rickard and Gleatson and declared
J
thai tho story originated In Now York
City Ho also said he had no knowl
edge of any meeting with Gleason in
Portland today He repeated that he
would be in TXJK Angeles about Febru
ary 15 adding that he will remain
there about fortyfive days and then
comes up to his training quarters
When asked where these quarters
would be Jeffries declined to answer

stoner of the land ofllce on Dec 13
1907 to make a thorough examination
of all the Alaskan coal land cases
snaring no one the Cunningham

opening of todays proceedings until
1035 p in at which hour Louis R
Glavis again took the witness stand
All the members of the committee
I were present at tho opening of tho
i session
Mr Plnchot and his diBmgned assist
ants of the forest service wore early
on hand but Secretary Balllnger again
was absent
Attorney Brundois representing
Glavis presented to the committee a
long list of witnesses to bo summoned
Glavis took up his story whore he
left It Wednesday afternoon giving
I his testimony in response to questions
I from bin attorney
Glavis said that United States Attorney
I
I torney Hoyt had suggested to him In
1107 that ho should take up tho mat
ter of the Alaska coal lands direct
with Secretary of the Interior Gar
field
But I did not think It would look
well to go over the head of my Imme
diate superiors ho added
I Glavis wild he did write to H H
I Schwartz then a chief of the Bold
II division saying ho wag worried about
the Alaska situation and would Ifke
to confide in him
I It will pain you as much as It has
pained me tho letter ran but I am
suro you will want to learn the true
situation
What Alaskan claims did you re
fer to In that letter asked Repre
sentative Olmstead
All of them replied the witness
Some 900 in all
Yes
At this timo Mr Ballinger was com
missioner of tho land
Attorney Brandcla next took up the
printed document in tho case which
consists of 807 pages and spent Homo
tlmo in calling the attention of the
committee to various letters tele
grams etc tending to show Glavis
activity in tho Alaska caoos Tho at
torney said he also wanted to call at
tention to certain laws which showed
the part Mr BalHngcr played an com
missioner
His purpose hesaluYJwnfi f d
cato that President Taft and Attorney
General Wlckoraham were mistaken
whon they reached the slated con
elusion thai Mr Ballingors participa
tion In tho matter had been morel p
I formal
I Among the letters read was OUt
from Special Agent H T Tones call
lag attention to the alleged fraudu
lent character of the Alaskan claims
That letter was written before Gla
via camo Into tho matter in ariy way

Yes replied Mr Brandeis
Then you dont claim Glavis called
I attention to these claims
I No In addition to Jones report
there had been one from Special
Agont Love
I Didnt Love recommend tho Cun
ningham claims for clear listing
asked Representative MadIson
It did not amount to a recommen
dation exactly replied the counsel
At this point Senator Sutherland
said
I It scorns to mo we arc getting a
great deal more testimony out of
counsel than out of the witness
I Thereupon the examination of Qla
via was resumed
Ho told of a visit to Washington in
1907 when he took up with officials
of the land office the matter pf tho
Alaska claims
He told Mr Schwartz that people in
Seattle wore saying there would be no
further Investigation of tho claims In
Alaska and the patents would bo
granted
I said there was another big scan
dal in regard to Wyoming and Colo
rado whore the Investigation of coal
land cases had been suppressed de
clared Glavis
Who suppressed thoso Investiga
tions demanded Senator Paynter
Dem
It was testified at Salt Lake City
that former Commissioner Richards
did Mr Balllnger had no connection
with It In any way
Why were people In Seattlo say
ing they would got their patents
asked Mr Jonos Dora
I do not know ropUetl < JInnd3 T
knew of no reasons they may havo
hadWho
Who made these statements r In
quired Mr Olmstead
Thoro were a number ot claimants
in the Hunt group I cannot recall
the names
After his interview with Mr
Schwartz Glavis was conducted to Mr
Balllnpers office and as a result of
his visit to Washington and the story
ho told was employed in charge of all
tho Alaska cases
What did you sato Commissioner
Balllngor
I told him wo thought we could
cancel the Alaska claims that a lot
1 of prominent peoplo had formed a
f pool and that the evidence would
I prove IL
What did Mr Balllngor say to
you9Ho
011He said a number of claimants
were friends and former business as
sociates of his and that there had
