WASHINGTON. April 7. Senator
James W. Harrtld, rep-blican. Oklaho
ma. made a voluntary statement to the
>c : ate department of justice investiga
tion committee relative to hi* uctivi
ti in connection with prosecution of
the Miller lother, Indira land fraud
Th- senator had been mentioned in
thi connection with the testimony of
former I'. S. Attorney Pack of Oklaho
ma. who worked up the cases.
He vc-.it to Attorney General Daugh
erty. the senator continued, when he
h< ard that Mr. Todd. Mr. Daugherty**
f•.rr * law partner, had been retained
b the Miller Broth r*. He urged that
Peck be retained to prosecute the e cas
c and thi- was done. His chief in
c t. the- enator said, was to avo.d
any “scandal.”
Si'Pjito HarteM said he had heard
"rumors" that Peck was to be replaced
bee;.use the Miller brother wanted
“to g«t him out of the prosecution “
efore th*- ca-c* came to trial.
Mr. II. rreld said he was “surprised"
to he: r that pleas «»f ruiltv had been
r. -epted in the* c is by direction e
elep rtment of ju tree. I.ater when
be card that no civil suits had been
* i,cu <> recover the lands involved, be
reported th;.t fact to the Indian bu
Fr:< r ils of the Miller brothers had
. -ked him to “intercede" in their be
half n Washington, Senator llarreld
- d. tut added that he did not care to
“go into that” unless the committee
d sired to pres it.
Attorney General Daugherty bad
“very readily" asserted to his sugges
tion that th* pending change in the
I'r.itci S’;.: - at! rney’s office in Ok
lahoma should be deferred so that Perk
- ould handle the Mille r ca e . Senator
il rreld said Mr. Daigherty did not
kn w at that time that Tc ■)»! had be«n
retained bv the* Millers.
Senator llarreld explained that h“
thought the e was “* ed for sc.indal”
>a th f ct that Todd was to defend
Georg- L. Miller and his n- sociates.
■ Kdwin S. Booth, who was detailed
:rom the department of ju ticc as so
lie.* r -f the interior department un
<1 r A. H. Fail, followed Senator Mar

» .lie identified letters from the in
t r dipartrmt t transmitting the Mil
!• r cue ti the department of justice
They were dated in April. 11)20.
Senate- Wheeler said he would show
that “Fall tried to get the cn e back"
from the «**•• artment of justice later.
A letter from Secretary Fall, elated
April, 11*21. was read suggesting that
th Miiler c • be continued to the
fall term «! ci virt chiefly because of
tire ab--nee from Washington of the
new Indian commissioner, who. the let
ter indie.-ted. wished to make further
c'ar .ina on. P• - k had te ttfied that the
I - |- a! con * i ance would have taken ^
the* M Her cases out of his hands as
prosecutor. A personal : nd confidential
liter from Perk to Daugherty oppo*
ing the continuance and pointing out
“rumors" of political influence also
was read by Booth.
