Attorney General Wickersham's
Report to President Given
to the Senate
action house declined to enter
upon a discussion of the joint resolu
tion introduced by Humphrey. The
resolution went ov#r until tomorrow.
Pinchot's Letter Sensation
In the senate Pinchofs letter caused
n genuine sensation. In addressing his
letter to Senator Dolliver, Pinchot lndi
<atfd that it had been written at the
request of the lowa senator, but it was
addressed to him as chairman of the
committee on agriculture, thus making
!t an official document. He said that
Prior- and Shaw had prepared an official

•It shows that they countenanced the
publication by L. R. Glavis of certain
facts concerning these claims after he
l;ad been dismissed from office, and that
»n ether ways they endeavored to direct
public attention to the imminent dan

covernment ownership might pass for
«>ver into private hands, with little or
no compensation to the public."
Proper to Be Made Public
This Information, Pinchot adds, was
of a nature proper to be made public
"unless there are secrets which the peo
ple of the United States are not en
titled to know concerning the source,
nature and progress of claims made for
portions of the public lands."
"The rumor," he said, "that the Glavis
report to the president was prepared
Jn or by the forest service is incorrect.
>t Glavis* request I sent Shaw, as if
vu proper. I should, to Chicago to as
sist him in arranging his material for
submission to the president."
After saying that these officials had
ected on information concerning the
rlanger of the loss of the Alaska coal
la.nds Pinchot continued:
High Praise for Glavis

to be the wrongful loss of public prop

PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 6.— "Let
the people decide who is right. I
think they are better qualified to
act as a jury in my case than an>
one else."
This was the statement made late
today over the long distance tele
phone by L. R. Glavis, former field
division chief of the general land
office, to the Associated Press after
the" report of Attorney General
Wickersham and the letter of
Chief Forester Gifford Pinchot 'to
Senator Dolliver had been read to
He went on to t;ay that he did not
care to go into further discussion
of his case until he, goes to Wash
ington to testify.
Glavis. however, flputed the idea
that he .was suffering from "mega
lomania." or that his action was in
any way Inspired by spite.
The only comment he made on
the attorney general's report was
on that portion referring to the al
leged overruling of Assistant Secre
tary Pierc«'s decision, in which the
attorney general says that the latter
"excluded any posjslble reference to
the Cunningham claims." Then
Glavis interected:
"Oh, it did, did. it"?
The former field chief was almost
equally reticent regarding the letter
from Chief Forester Gifford to Sen
ator Dolliver.
But, though he declined to say
what part Messrs. Shaw and Price
forth was quite as unusual. He said:
"Price iiml ShfiTf *ueee*Hfull j- di
rected public attention to a national
danjrer. Thry Increased the people*
Interest in tlie people's property
and powerfully fontered the desire
to conserve It. There I» now far
lean rhance thnt the Aln«k» coal
liolrt^ will pan* Into the hands of
fraudulent elalmantN than there
nan before they acted. They acted
on what they believed to be truM
wnnhj- luformntiiMi. "Unny eonald
eratlons which had not been broutfbt .
linmc to the president** mind, as
appears from lit« letter of Septem
ber 13, had weight with them.
Official Decorum Rules
"The rule* of official decorum
exist In the Interest of official ad
mlnlHtratlon and of that alone. If
they are need to prevent an hottest
and vigilant official from nhvliik the
property of the public, their pur
pone is violated, and they become
worne than useless. Prince iiml J
Minw concede that they did trann
srreas propriety. But measured by
the emergency which faced them,
by the purity of their motives, and
the results which they accom
plished, their breach of propriety
sinks well nijch to lnMsnffleunee."
Shirks No Responsibility'
- Pinchot said he disclaimed any Inten
tion or desir«? to shirk any part of his
own legitimate responsibility for what
was done by these two subordinates.
What they did, he added, raised a ques
tion of principle that should not be
obscured either by personal considera
tion or by possible mistakes on their
part. They had, he said, done for the
people of the country what the people
would have done for themselves had
they been in a situation to do it. .
Upon the conclusion of the discussion
of the Pinchot letter the president's
message transmitting: Attorney Gen
eral Wickersham's report on the Bal
ling-er case was laid before the senate,
but Wickershflm's long: report was not
read. It was referred to the committee
on public lands.
Senator Nelson, chairman of the com
mittee on public lands, has called a
m^etlniET for Saturday, morning: to con
sider the several resolutions rebating
to the investigation of the Ballinger-
Pinchot controversy. '.*•"-'
WASHINGTON. Jan. C— After reading
newspaper reports of the lively tilt in
the senate following the reading of a
letter addressed to Senator Dolliver, as
chairman of .the senate committee on
agriculture, by Glfford Pinchot,. In
which the chief forester vigorously up
held subordinates in his office for the
aid they gave Txmis R. Glavis in reports
he made public attacking Secretary
Baliinger, President Taft sent out a
hurry call for such members of his
cabinet as were within reach.

Slap at President
Pinchot in his letter virtually up
holds Glavis and describes him as "the
most vigorous defender of the people's
interests." despite the fact that Presi
dent Taft had declared Glavis unfit to
remain In the public service. •:
This direct slap at the-president and
the further declaration by Pinchot that
the Cunningham coal lands really were
about to go to fraudulent claimants
until Glavis and the forestry' bureau
officials took a hand in the fight, thus
impugning the intentions of high of
ficials of the Interior department, are
said to have aroused Taft to keen.re
The president is said to have felt
for some time that Pinchot has been
"defying the lightning.'!-
Some- action as to Pinchot's course
in the letter incident is not unexpected.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 6.— Louis R.
Glavis. formerly chief of the field di
vision. of the general land office, suf
fered of magalomania and was!. not

of the department of forestry took
in preparing Glavis' report, Glavis
declared that "Pinchot is a man of
scrupulous honesty, and I; would
have no hesitation in pronouncing
true whatever he actually said or
wrote on this or any other subject."
"Did Shaw and Price also aid you
in the preparation of an article
written by you which recently ap
peared in an eastern magazine"?
he was asked.
"No, sir," replied Glavis; "most
emphatically,- no. They had no part
in its preparation whatever."
linger by Glavis August 18, reviews the
status of the Cunningham group of
coal land claims in Alaska, states Bal-
Hnger's relations with the claimants,
cites the laws bearing on the case,
quotes many letters written by Glavis
and others in regard to the claims and
the resultant controversy, and draws
the following conclusions:
The conclusions, which, in my opin
ion, are very clearly established by
these papers, are as follows:
The insinuations or charges of im
proper action on the part of Secretary
Baliinger, First Assistant Secretary
Pierce, Commissioner Dennett or Chief
of Kield Division Schwartz are in my
opinion entirely disproved. So far
from taking any action to favor the
Cunningham claimants, the record
clearly shows' that Secretary Baliinger
was scrupulously careful not in any
respect to act upon these claims, for
the reason that during the summer of
1908, while he was in no manner con
nected with the government he had
been consulted by some of «the: claim
ants with respect to the issuance of
patents, and had called .upon Secre
tary Garfield for the purpose" of ascer
taining the attitude of his department
Neither his action nor any of his
written or spoken expressions were fa
vorable to these, claimants. The ut
most he did was to instruct the land
office to investigate promptly all-pend
ing cases.
* 'second — The suggestion that it was
unlawful for Baliinger to have any pro
fessional relation with these claimants,
because of his previous incumbency of
the office of commissioner of the land
office, is, in my opinion, unsound.
Third — The Cunningham locations
were made in July and August, 1904.
All but three of them proceeded to
entry prior to May 1. 1907, and the
remaining three in October, 1907, pay
ments aggregating $52,800 being made
and covered into the treasury.
Fourth — Glavis" claim .that he pre
vented the government from. being de
frauded by procuring'a. reference to the
attorney general of. questions of law
involved and the overruling by him, of
an opinion written by Assistant Sec
retary Pierce, which would have en
abled the Cunningham claimants to
procure patents on their claims, is ab
solutely disproved by the record.
Fifth — The intervention by forestry
bureau, procure.il by Glavis, Is shown
by the record to have been entirely
unnecessary to the protection of the
interests of the United States. • * •
Sixth — Glavis' report and summary
abound In contradiction and mlsstate
ments. They omit to a degree that
amounts to absolute . suppression, 1 ' let
ters, telegrams anc other documents,
some of which were In his possession,
and others which were available to him
and which completely refute inferences
he seeks to have drawn from those
which he doea submit.
Seventh — The action of each and
every official of the land office referred
to in Glavis' charges appears to have
been inspired by. the perfectly proper
desire to bring to a. conclusion an in
vestigation which' was prolonged be
yond all reason and which, if it had
been prosecuted with due dilierence and
if Glavis had properly availed him
self of* the assistance placed- at his
disposal by the land office, should have
been completed and ready for trial not
later than the autumn. of 3903. ..:..:
The claimants were entitled "to have
the objection to their claims formu
lated and brought to hearing with rea
sonable promptness and the interests of
the government did not require and
were not advanced by the prolonged de
lays and inaction of Special Agent
Glavis. .. , ' \u25a0 fey "?'.\u25a0:
In this connection It may be pointed
out, as an example of Glavis' habitual
procrastination, that although pursuant
to his request of April 11, 1908, to for
ward to him all original papers relating
to Alaska coal .entries and declaratory
statements upon his representation that
the statute of limitations would pre
vent criminal prosecutions after the
following October and the cafsea must
therefore be presented during the
month dt>f May, all such original papers
and documents were, by direction of
the general .land office. Immediately
transmitted to him by the Juneau of
fice. No proceeding .whatever was
taken by him . to bdn gthese criminal
prosecutions or to take any steps in
connection therewith.
Glavis appears at air times to have
been prolific in criticism and fault find
ing or other officials of his department,
desirous of Increasing his jurisdiction,
ready with reasons for delay, but never
ready to complete anything he under
took. \u25a0 \u25a0 -::\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0' ;-.'i: ~- -\u25a0;\u25a0.' •• -.
His action in appealing to the for
estry bureau of the department of ag
riculture to intervene In these' cases,
without consulting any of- his . official
superiors, was a breach of all proper
discipline, which is' peculiarly aggra
vated because taken on the very day
when he complained- to Secretary Bal
iinger in person •' that he-was- being
forced to a hearing before ready with
necessary evidence and was referred by
the secrtary to Chif of Field Service
Schwartz. . -
This species of magalomanla has
finelly led him to. submit to you charges
of improper motives . and- -conduct
against his' official which, -in
myopinion, are so unjust'and unfound
ed as to merit his immediate suspension
from the service. - \u25a0 •• ->( \u25a0\u0084•\u25a0

Speech, by den. James Smith
Homer S. King, who called the meot
ing to order, asked General James
F. Smith, former governor general of
the Philippines, to address the: com
mittee,' and the latter spoke briefly
of the good to be accomplished by tho
holding of the fair.. .
"The people of the Philippines are
just as-much, interested in -this great
canal proposition as are the people
of "the United -\u25a0 States'," said General
Smith. "They would like nothing bet
.ter J than. to hold suoh;an exposition' on
their* own 'territory had they the finan
cial means, but' next to that they,.want
to see -it held in San . Francisco, the
queen city of the Pacific. *-r
One Platform for Fair
"This exposition will be one of tho
most important events in San Fran
"cisco's history. I do not say the most
important, because I look upon the re
building of the city as the most impor
tant thing the city has e\*er accom
plished. : But the coming exposition
means more' than we can surmise in
progress, prestige and advancement."
"The city may have many differ
ences of opinion and belief among
its people, but there are merely differ
ences symbolic of a strong character.
When it comes to this fair there Is but
one: platform .upon which we. must all
stand, and that ; is unity, upbuilding,
advancement and prosperity."
The report of the special nominating
committee of three was adopted on mo
tion of C. K. »Mclntosh and following
this C. C. Moore made a short address.
He declared that such a meeting and
such an attendance was surprising and
that the inspiration it would furnish
for future endeavor could not be meas
ured. ---\u25a0'*
Excursion to Los Angeles
Moore announced that an excursion
was being arrangedtfor San Francisco
businessmen desiring to attend the avi
ation meeting in Los Angeles and that
a good representation of the ways and
means committee of the' exposition was
The special train for this excursion
is to leave San P'rancisco next Friday
night and return the following Monday,
and T. C. Friedlander, who has charge
of the excursion arrangements, stated
after the meeting that enough names
had been secured to insure the success
of the trip.
\ Prior to the adjournment of the ways
and means committee the directing
committee was instructed to ask all
members of the larger body which sub
committees they would prefer to serve
upon and to prepare lists of subcom
mittees for future consideration.
A call was issued last night for a
meeting of. the directing committee at
3:30 o'clock this afternoon in the ex
position headquarters in the Merchants'
Exchange building.
That Seattle and other cities of the
north Pacific coast are deeply interested
in the success of the Panama-Pacific
internationar exposition and will sup
port it to the utmost was evidenced by
the statement made last evening by
Frank McDermott, proprietor of the
Bon" Marche, one of the greatest de
partment stores of Seattle. .
"All Seattle is interested in the com
ing exposition in San Francisco," said
McDermott. "I am willing now to offer
a contribution of $2,000 of stock sub
scription on behalf : of the Bon Marche,
and If it becomes necessary toward the
end to raise additional funds by a bond
issue or' otherwise 1 will stand ready. to
help out again.
'"I am thoroughly ' enthusiastic over
the plans for this exposition. : Our fair
in Seattle this summer was the great
est; kind, of success, and yet San Fran
cisco has the opportunity to give' the
biggest fair . here that, the world has
ever known. What .helps- one city on
thisjeoast helps all the rest, * and ; w«
are all willing and anxious to stand. by
San Francisco and give it our utmost
aid. . . ,
Exposition Helps Business '
"Tho Bon . Marche made a contribu
tion to the Seattle' fair, which, T if an
other fair- was to be held there, I
would certainly triple in size. As a
mere business proposition .such a fair
as Is contemplated for San Francisco
will do wondrous things. Our^business
improved to an amazing extent during
the Seattle fair, and not. only that,;but
it; continued afterward.
