BALLINGER MAKES DENIAL
Never Said Big Corporations Ought to
Washington, Nov. 20. Replying to
charges nuulo by a mngnzlne publica
tion, Secretary It. A. Ualllngor of the
Interior department took occasion to
deny many of tho reports' which re
cently lurve beeii circulated concern
ing the conduct of his department and
to explain others.
"To sny that I lmve ever advlson,
ordered or lent support to any offort
to perpetrate a fraud upon the .govern
ment," he said, " Is not only false, but
Is Intentionally so, If made by anyone
who has taken the trouble to Inquire
Into the facts."
Asked about a statement that he had
said that tho proper course to take
with the public domain was to "divide
It up among the big corporations and
let the people who know how make
money out of It," Mr, Balllnger replied r
"So asinine a statement hardly mer
its n denial. Of course I mado no such
statement. Such a thought could not
be entertained by any normal intelli
gence. "What I really think in regard
to the public domain and the conserva
tion of naturnl resources may be found
In my official reports as commissioner
of the general land office, and In my
present annual report, soon to be pub
lished. I have not only been consist
ently In tho vnnguard of the conserva
tion movement, hut I have sought to
give it permanence along lines reason
ably within the spirit of the present
law and to secure more adequate laws."

Sullivan and J. U. Halt of Omnhn havo
written to Governor Shallonberger
asking for a copy of tho charges filed
by the Anti-Saloon league against

and police commissioners of Omaha,
charging non-enforcement of tho S

heie to moan that this firm will ropro

It is probable nothing will be dono
Iicim In the matter until tho hearing of
the hotel men and saloon keepers
charged with violating tho law is held
in tho police court. In case u convic
tion is secured, a hearing probably
will bo hold by tho governor here.
If City Attorney Flnnsberg has his
way about it, Lincoln is going to bo
dry for evoryono if It is dry for any
one. When the town went dry the
Elks, tho Enslcs and one or two other
organizations promptly scoured an in
junction restraining the police from
raiding the lodge rooms and they ue

tion hns been hanging over the heads
ot tho police since last May and nothing
hns been dono to mako It porpotunl or
to try out tho case. Tho city attorney
hns Informed tho district court that
whilo ho would not recommend that
the police violate tho Injunction, but
he did insist upon a heating of the
case. If it can be brought about In
no othor way, then he will cnuso the
arrest of somo driver of a boor wagon
en route to one of tho clubs and gut
tho case tried out in thnt way.
Governor Shallenborger will make
no move to appoint 11 inomboi of the
state normal board to succeed Super

was filed and if tho couit decided not
to change its mind, l..ua would bo
