They are -now being held on a charge of abusive language Instead. press and magazines of the country for several months have been filled with charges against the present secretary of the interior and his conduct of the office he holds. A moment's thought should cause an honest and fair-minded man to hesitate to accept such charges against a man whose whole life hereto fore has been one of the highest recti tude and aga.nst whom no dishonorable charge has ever been maSe in either private or public life. Such a man is the present secretary of the interior. Axles Onlj- Justice. "He gave up a large and lucrative law practice simply at the call of pa triotic duty. Is it possible that he at once became the scoundrel and arch I enemy of tne people that he has been depicted in the public press? I can not believe it. If he has used his high office to advance special interests: if he has sacrificed the people for pri vate or personal gain, let it be shown. If, on the other hand, the people have been deceived and he has been unjust ly accused that fhould be shown not only that justice may be done him but that the confidence of the public in the honesty and integrity of its public servants may be restored and strength ened and the animus of the attacks dis closed.

He has with drawn all locations known to possess power possibilities and unappropriated lands outside of national forests over which his department has no jurisdic tion and he recommends that congress pass a measure authorizing the classi fication of lands capable of being used for water power development and to permit of their disposal through the interior department upon substantially the following conditions The Investigation. "This resolution has been drawn di recting the committee to Investigate along certain and specific lines and then authority is given to it to make any -further investigation that it may deem desirable. The intention is to se cure the broadest and most thorough in vestigation.
