publican party leader on a platform
which is the embodiment of the Ideas
of tho leaders of both tho Richards
faction and the faction led by E L

We commend President Taft for
tilt reiterated declarations of loyalty
to tie lloosevelt policies of progres
sive Republicanism and pledge his
administration tho support of the pro
gressive Republicans in his efforts to
obtain the enactment of legislation
embodying those principles
The dominating Issue in the corn
ing campaign is tho wresting of con
I trol of national legislation from spe
cial Interests intrenched behind Speak
er Cannon of tho house and Leader
Aldrich of the senate and their sup
porters It is riot sufficient that
Speaker Canpon he retired It is es
sential that a successor bo elected who
Is committed to und is a supporter of
progressive principles The progres
sive Republicans of South Dakota will
not support a candidate for the pri
mary who does not stand unequivo
cally on this platform
We believe tho Payne tariff law
was a decided step in fulfillment of
tho party pledge but that inequalities
yet exist which should be remedied
when demonstrated to be such by tho
investigations of the tariff commis
sion
sionWo
Wo denounce the practice of col
lecting moneys for political campaign
purposes from persons who hold or
are aspiring to appointive government

thereof by amendment of the corrupt

ments to the primary law to provide
how party nominations to all appoint
ive government positions shall bo de
termined
Wo favor the nomination of post

We favor an amendment of the

Coal Cases With 6ross Incom
petency and Praises Glavis
Washington Feb 25Tho Ballln
RcrPlnchot Inquiry took an expected
I turn today when Special Agent Horace
T Jones of tho land office took tho
I stand for the prosecution and made
I a sensational attack on James M
Sheridan who was sent by the land
office to Seattle lest year to take I
charge of tho governments caso In
hearings on the Cunningham coal
claims on Alaska
Jones declared that Sheridan had
teen graduated in law only a year or
two that his conduct of the case was
Incompetent and that he had opposed
to him two of tho leading lawyers of
Seattle
Testifying for an hour or more as
to Sheridans conduct of the case and
Riving instances from which he wished
the committee to draw its own con
clusions Jones said he did not deslro
to criticise Sheridan In any way I
He said Louis 13 Glavis wan not a
lawyer but knew moro law than I
Sheridan did and he thought it was
a reflection on Glavis for tho laud
ofDco to send Sheridan out there to i
tako charge of a case which Glavis I
had worked up
Under crossexamination Jones ap
peared defiant and aggressive to mem
bers of tho committee and counsel
alike and said ho did not caro what
inferences wore drawn from his testi
mony
Jones was still under crossexami
nation when luncheon recess was
taken and it appeared that Gifford
Plnchot would not be reached an a wit
ness until lato in the afternoon
Jones was examined by Mr Bran
dela as to his work on the coal cases
in 1907 Tho witness said ho con
suited freely with Commissioner Bal
linger when the latter was In Seattle
in July1907 He told Mr Balllnger
that Special Agent Lovo In Alaska
was only halfhearted in his work be
cause he was a candidate for United
States marshal
I told the Commissioner hs
added that Love did not have the
proper spirit for an investigator and
he agreed with me Tho commis
sioner asked me to make an investi
gation of all tho claims as soon as
possible as he wanted to bo In a posi
tion to appear before congress to ad
vocate remedial legislation He wanted
to know just what the conditions were
in the various Alaska groups so ho
could speak Intelligently I told him
it would bo sufficient to Interview two
or Uuoo claimants in each group
The witness said ho had novel seen
the report made by Love on the Cun
ningham cases dated Aug 2 1007 un
til December of that year when Glavis
told him about it It was claimed on
this report of AUb 2 that Commis
sioner Balllnger In January 1908 or
dered tho Cunningham claims to ho
I clear listed for patent
Jones corroborated Glavis testi
mony as to his efforts to got tho
Alaska cases taken up by tho grand
Jury at Seattle Glavis va criticised
in Wicfcershams report to the Presi
dent for hating dono nothing toward
a criminal prosecution Jones said ho
went to District Attorney Todd at
Spaltle by direction of Glavis who
was then his chief
Todd said it was useless to take
tho cases up at Seattle for Judge
Hanford was constitutionally opposed
to land fraud cases and ho did not
want to be humiliated by being turned
down the witness said
Todd suggested that we take tho
I matter up with the attorney general
at Washington and get the attorney
general to direct him to take up the
matter at Seattle
Jones corroborated what Glavis had
testified to as to the otatomeut made
by Donald A McKonzle that tho rea
son Jjmes R Garfleld was not re
tained In Mr rafts cabinet was be
cause of his hostility to tim Alaska
conl claims

the resumption of the BalllngcrPin
chot congressional Inquiry today after
an adjournment from Saturday lost
centered In the announcement that
Gifford PIchot would be called to tho
stand as tho third Important witness
for tho prosecution
Just what Mr Pinchot would say
was problematical After the avowal
of Louis R Glavis that ho sought Mr
Plnchots assistance and that Mr Pin
chot had sent him to the President
tho former forester seems to have had
less to do with the matters under in
vestigation by the committee than had
been popularly supposed
There was a rumor before the days
session began that an effort would bo
made to hold Mr Plnchot strictly to
testimony dealing with tho Alaska
coal lands or matters concerning tho
inquiry and this might materially cur
tail his recital
Tho inquiry was inaugurated for the
purpose of delving Into both the inte
rior department and the forestry serv
Ice but after tho resolution passed
congress Mr Plnchot and his two sub
ordinates who woro active in the
Glavis matter were dismissed from
the service
When Mr Pn hot was asked by ho
committee jsomb time ago as to what
angle of the case his testimony would
have to do with ho answered that he
proposed to tell tho story of his con
nection with conservation
Followers of the Inquiry have
t v1
I
formed the Impression that the vcr 1
diet if there Is not to be a majority I
and minority finding which would
leave the matter practically where it I
was before the Inquiry began will
hinge upon tho testimony of Mr Bal i
linger himself 1
I
I In other words the case will soon
narrow down to an issue between Mr
Glavis and the secretary of tho inte I
rior The committee Is rather restive
and anxious that Mr Balllngers test
mony should be reached at the earliest I
time When he has concluded and 1
tho documents arc all In tho inquiry
will probably be closed I
When the committee met In open I
session Attorney Brandois for the
prosecution requested permission to I
introduce In evidence the statements
recently made before tho senate com I
mittee on territories by Stephen
Birch managing director and J N
I Steel attorney for tho Alaskan syndi
cate of Morgan Guggenheim syndicate L
for the exploitation of Alaska j
Theso statements told In part of tha A
GuggenheimCunningham coal claims
which have been tho source of all the l
trouble incident to tho present inquiry i
quiry
Chairman Nelson said the state
monts of Messrs Birch and Steel had
not been made under oath The com
mlttce agreed that the men should be 1
summoned as witnesses The attor 1
neys for both aIdes unite in tho re I
quest I
Special Agent Horace T Jones who
worked with Glals on the Alaska
cases having arrived in tho city since
the lost adjournment of the commit
tee was called to the stand while Mr
Plnchot waited
