The matter was put over for con sideration by tho committee and it i- expected that a decision will be an nounced when the next session is held Tuesday morning. Mr. Pinchot followed up tho vigor ous attack made on Secretary Ballinger in his opening statement by declaring n(m me, tunt lie iuny uuuuvuu in opi-ciui auni Glavis, and was convinced that Glav is had said what was tho truth.

He declared that in less than a month thereafter Secretary Ballinger practi cally had broken the backbone of tho central idea of tho conservation move ment by restoring previously withdrawn water power sites to the public domain and laying them open to private up propriation and monopolistic control. Pinchot declared that when the res torations wero made, Mr. Ballinger gave no point that ho withdraw- tho power sites, and that as a matter of fact, he did not rowithdraw any of them, nn til after Mr. Pinchot had gone to the In response to inquiries as to whether ho intended to make any reply, -ur. Ballinger mado tho following statement for the Associated Press: "In view of tho fact that 1 will pres enty havo an opportunity to appear be fore tho committee and acqunint them with tho truth, I shal not reply through tho press to tho mendacious aspersions which Mr. Pinchot attempts to cast Ho attempted without suc cess to deceive tho president. He will find it equally dillicult for him to de ceive the committee. "Obviously, tho only deception in which he hopes to succeed is temporary ilecoption of the public through the press. This lie had endeavored to do by giving out in advanco the introduc tory statement which has appeared and which ho has been malignant enough to preseut, but not quite reckless enough to state upon oath. "Fortunately, as already stated, I will soon havo an opportunity to give to the committee, and through tho com mitteo to tho public, tho facts and truth, and for that reason I have no statement at tho present to make." In tho ficht a woman passenger, Mrs. J. C. Elder, was struck with a brick and rendered unconscious. Walter Graham, another passenger, who tried to carry her from tho car, was attacked by the mob and roughly handled, but managed to carry the woman into a drug store.

Tentatively, it is planned to arm this great battleship with n battery of four teen 14-inch guns of the latest "type. It was tentatively agreed today that the naval increase for this year, based on the secretary's recommendations, shall be as follows: Two 27,000-tons battleships, equipped with 12 or 14-inch guns. Ono repair ship. Two colliers, Five submarines. The submarines aro for the Pacific coast and aro the- first of a fast fleet of those vessels which will bo provided in the next few yers.
