guard they overpowered and dis
armed him
They compelled him to conduct
them to tho home of L E Ellison
cashier of tho bank onehalf a mile
away Here they broke In the win
dow of the bed room with revolvers
and covered the rulely awakened
cashier and his wife
Cashier Ellison was ordered to ac
company them to the bank in his
gare feet and partially clothed His
wife was warned that if situ made any
attempt to call assistance her hus
band would be killed and to enforce
the warning the robbers cut the tele
phone wire entering the resideno
Both Cashier Ellison and the night
watchman were marched to the bank
at the point of a revolver by the two
bandits and the cashier was ordered
to open the vault door He compiled
hut Informed the robbers that the In
ner dor was locked with a time lock
and that it was Impossible for him 10

before the beginning of the fiscal
year I am making a hurried trip to
accomplish that purpose
I am highly pleased with conditions
In every direction and can say with
pleasure that the forest work Is mov
ing along nicely There Is no friction
anywhere among the employes of the
government in the forest service and
I never met a more competent lot of
men than I have found in the service
on this hip
You can say without equivocation
that the plan adopted for the forest
service of the United States by my
predecessor Gifford Pinchot will not
lie deviated from There will be no
changes in policy at all except where
changed conditions in particular In
stances may demand It The policy
has ben and will be to give tho
big man and the little man a square
deal conservation of the forests
watersheds water power sites graz
ing and farm lands and the greater
Interests of the people will he tho slo
gan in the future as it has been in
the past
There Is no reason for a change
for the policy is well founied upon
safe and sane principles I can s ° e
what you would like me to Bay but
that is the thing that I cannot talk
about Let them sottle that matter
down In Washington I have nothing
whatever to say regarding the Pin

Mr Graves is a collegebred gen
tleman but he Is a long way from
being a tenderfoot la this country He
attends to business with dispatch and
understands what he Is doing as he Is
