IS NOT FIT TO HOLD OFFICt Co Declares Dismissed Forester to In vcstig?ting Committee Presents Statement of What He Pro poses to Prove. Washington, Feb. 2C. Clifford pin tli.it today made to Ine l;aiiinger-Piii-cliot Invos.tlgatlng committee this statement f his charges against sec re tary Ralllnger: 'Wli.il I eleslrc to lay before tin committee- is a consecutive story of my oxM-ilfnco with Ballingcr in rela tlcin to the conservation of natural re ounces. Among the several other tuattors thcro are throe of princi pal Imiiortance to be callce" to your at tention. "The first of these concerns the pol ity devised and inaugurated by the last ndminlstratl'in of protecting against the monopolistic control of water power sites owned hy the people. I Khali .show you that Secretary Ballln i.er entered his office with a clear de termination to make short work of that policy; that ho reversed it so far as he was allowed to do go; that he restored the power sites to entry without the remotest idea of with drawing them, and that finally when I charged him last autumn to president with being an enemy of the. policy of conservation he capped the climax by giving to the president himself an ex planation of his conduct that was es sentially false. "The second has to do with my con tortion as a government officer with the Cunningham coal eases and with the (Jlavls. charges. .1 shall . show you liow the forest service became Involved la these cases, and how Olavls submit ted his facts to me. I behoved then, vs I believe now, that he told the truth. 1 am convinced now as I was when !io came to me that GlavU- was a faithful public, servant, and that the facts which ho presented to prove that Bal lingcr has been unfaithful to his trust a-' a servant of the people and as a Lii.mlian of public property are of enormous value. "I shall show you that since I learn ed the facts you have heard from GU is and others, which I am about to lay before you, I have acted steadily In the light of them ns it was my duty both as a public officer and as a citi zen to do. "The third principal matter Is con cerned with the attitude of this gov ernment in law and administrative practice toward the conservation of natural resources belonging to the poi !e. I deslro to show you that the Mory of Olavls' courageous and suc cessful fight to protect the proj-rty of the people, which ended In his dismis (il without hearing. Is but a single chapted in th history of public lands. I shall -show you that under our pres ent law and practice a more difficult tak falls on those who wouH protect public property and not on those who would despoil, it line tV.nt under the present system u betrayal into mono polistic control of what be" to ill el' iii l made easy and oftet: '' "The Imperative duty L.'ore this country Is not merely to get rid of an unfaithful public servant. A far more Important duty Is to bring about a f inula mental change in the law and practice toward conservation to pre vent f i r the future w hat has been In past the almost Inevitable sacrifice of. public welfare and to make possible hereafter the utUUntlon of natural re soiircoH and natural advantages for the benefit of alt people instead of merely for the profit of a few. "When this Hory has been told and the witnesses w hom I shall ask you to tall have beou heard you will realize that the In terests of the people are not safe in Uallinaer'a hands."

THE CALUMET NEW TOUR OF CZAR FREDERICK OF NO SIGNIFICANCE 'IIS SAID Monarch of Bulgaria Likes "to Travel acd Russia is First Objective Foint. EASTERN QUESTION REVIVED Vienna, Feb. 26. A Blight revival of Interest in the Near Kastern question has been occasioned this week by the visit of Czar Ferdinand of Bulgaria to Czar Nic holas of Russia. Political ru mors are always rifo when potentates travel, though, as a matter of fact, lut little importance thould bo at tached to their visits, for history shows that International relations are never seriously affected by these official courtesies. Of all the sovereigns of Furope the Journeylngs of the Bulgarian ruler certainly should attract the least at tention, for he is nearly always "on the go." Though comparatively young In years today, by the bye. Is his forty-ninth birthday Ferdinand has probably traveled more extensively than any other European ruler. Some thirty years ago he visited the United States and later made a voyage of ex ploration Into the unknown regions of South America. During the first few years that followed his election as Prince of Bulgaria his frequent Jour neys to the capitals of Furope Involv ed such expense and kept him away from Sofia so much that for a time his popularity among his own people suffered. It is but natural that on his present tour of the courts of Europe, the first he has made since Bulgaria succeeded in throwing off the suzerainty of the Porte, Ferdinand should elect to make the Russian court his first objective lHint. Russia, acting through motives not wholly unselfish, was the first of the powers to recognize Ferdinand as a full-fledged and independent sover eign. In order to Induce Russia to recognize his claims as nn indepen dent sovereign Ferdinand aroused the resentment of Austria-Hungary by vio lating solemn promises which he had made to the Vienna government in connection with the conclusion of a treaty of commerce, and also offended the religious sentiment of the greater part of Europe by causing his eldest hoy, prince Boris, to be converted from Catholicism to the Russian Church.

During the two weeks of the tournament there will be no let-up In the competitions.

VAUGHN'S WIFE IS NOW ACCUSED Wife of Late Kirksville, Mo., Ed- ucator Is Charged With His Murder. CASE WILL BE SENSATIONAL Physician Has Alto Been Arrested in Connection With Crime, Both As- : serting Innocence Poison ing is Alleged. Kirksville, Mo., Feb. 26. Mrs. Alma Proctor Vaughn was arrested, this morning on a warrant charging her with the murder of her husband, Prof. John T. Vuughn. She was released on a J25.0O0 bond. The arrest of Mrs. Vaughn marks another step In what promises to be one of the most sensational, us well as one of the hardest fought cases, in the history of the state. Dr. J. R. Hull, a Monroe City physi cian, was arrested Thursday on a like charge and released on ball. Both as sert their Innocence. Vaughn died, uccording to the ver dict of the coroner's Jury, from strych nine poisoning. The strains of Mendelssohn's wed ding march, played by Mrs. Vaughn shortly after her husband's death, led to the grand Jury investigation of tho death of Prof . Vaughn. Although Vaughn, who was instructor of Amer ican History In the state normal school here, died in cemvulsions on October 14 last, no one suspected at the time that his death was unnatural except one' or tw o persons who thought he might have taken poisem accidentally. Mrs. Vaughn's music was heard ten days after Vaughn's death by Mrs. John R. Kirk, whose guest she was af ter the funeral. Mrs. Kirk's suspic ions were aroused and she confided in her husband who is president of the Ftate normal. She told him other things she had observed what seemed unusual In the behavior of a widow. The Investigation of the death, insti gated by president Kirk and Vaughn's brothers, was the result. Vaughn was apparently In the best of health when he arrived home from church the night of his death. Thirty minutes later he died in convulsions. II Is widow, who survives him, with their seven-year-old daughter, testi fied at the coroner's inquest her hus band took quinine In a paper capsule as soon as he arriveel heme. Mrs. Vaughn is 33 and a niece of Dr. Prector, president and director of the Monroe City, Mo., bank. In addition to the estate of $30,000, Vaughn's life was Insured for 17,000. It is not, however, charged this sup plied the motive. Mrs. VauRhn has realty in her name valued at $40,000. -. Vaughn was burled In Monroe City, the present home of Mrs. Vaughn. The January grand Jury was dis missed without returning a report on the death. The body was exhumed, however, after several days consulta tion with attorneys representing tho Proctor family. The latter opposed the exhumation, which was urged by Vaughn's brothers, backed by Prose cuting Atteerney Relgertfrelger. The. viscera were forwarded to Dr. Schweit zer, chemist of the Missouri State university, and he reported finding 49-53 grains of strychnine in the stom ach and liver. The amount of ih poison In other parts of the viscera has not been determined. Vaughn was 50 years old. studious and retiring, while Mrs. Vaughn Is vivacious. She was a pupil In the Parish, Mo., high school when he was principal there and they were married shortly after she completed her courses Hull had been the Proctor family phy sician three years, since his locating in Monroe City three years ago.
