Testify — Dill Wants
Roosevelt Fired
Universal Service
Washington, March 31.—Harry F.
Sinclair, oil magnate, was indicted
by a federal grand Jury here Monday
on 10 counts growing out of his re
fusal to answer questions propounded
by the oil investigating committee.
Other developments of the leasing of
the naval oil fields to private parties
1— President Coolidge was called
upon, In a resolution Introduced in
the Senate by Senator C. C. Dill, to
ask for the Immediate resignation of
Assistant Secretary of the Navy The
odore Roosevelt because of his con
nection with the naval oil leases. The
resolution was not acted on.
2— Senator James W. Wadsworth,
of New Yorkk, defended Mr. Roose
velt, on the floor of the Senate. He
had read a letter Mr. Roosevelt
sent to State Senator William W.
Campbell, of New York, asserting
that he protested against the grant
ing of the naval reserve leases.
Resume Hearings Today
3— The oil Investigating commit
tee will resume hearing Tuesday with
Prof. R. H. Wilson, former superin
tendent of schools of Oklahoma, as
the star witness. Senator Walsh of
Montana, chief prosecutor, expects to
prove, in part, through him the story
A1 Jennings told about how the oil
interests controlled the Chicago con
vention in 1920 and dictated the nom
The Indictment against Sinclair
fills 22 pages and relates in detail his
refusal to answer pertinent questions
propounded by Senator Walsh rela
tive to the oil leases. A count is
based on each specific question while
the tenth count deals with the gen
eral refusal of the millionaire to an
swer all questions propounded to him.
According to the indictment Sin
clair was summoned to give testi
mony, December 4. 1923, and was re
called on March 22, 1924. The ques
tions propounded on March 22. which
he refused to answer are set forth.
Penalty Year In Jail
The statute which Sinclair is
charged with having violated carries
a penalty of a maximum fine of $1,000
and one year in jail.
After the indictments Sinclair’s at
torneys made arrangement for his
appearance in court to give bail.
Under the rules, the Dill resolu
tion directed against Assistant Sec
retary of the Navy Roosevelt went
over until called up. Senator Din
Is leaving for the middle west to
make some speeches within the next
few days when he will explain, in
detail, the aims and purposes of h:s
resolution, he said.
Senator Wadsworth took occasion
later in the day to refer to the Dill
“I notice." he said, "if I may use
the expression, another sniper has
raised his head above the political
trenches to take a shot at a member
of the administration.**
Says Author Careful
After quoting that part of the res
olution which says Roosevelt was a
director of the Sinclair Oil company
before entering the government serv
ice, Senator Wadsworth said:
"The author of the resolution is
exceedingly careful, apparently, in
refraining from giving details and the
dates having to do with Mr. Roose
velt’s former connection with the
Sinclair Oil company. The fact is
that Mr. Roosevelt was one of a num
ber of investment hankers who
joined with others in underwriting
the stock for the Sinclair Oil com
pany and that he accepted a director
ship in the Sinclair Oil company at
the time.
"He resigned as director of that
company in 1917, before going into
the service in the war against Ger
many. In that war he took part in
some of the most severe battles
waged in France. He was gassed and
wounded and made for himself a
name as one of the most distinguish
ed combat battalion leaders in the
entire A. E. F."
Opposed Transfer
Senator Wadsworth then referred
to the assertion in the Dill resolution
that Mr. Roosevelt carried the ex
ecutive order transferring the oil re
serves to the Interior department to
the president to sign. Then he had
read the letter which Mr. Roosevelt
sent to State Senator Campbell of
New York, under date of Kebraury
15, 1924, In which he told of his con
nection with the oil leases.
In that letter Mr. Roosevelt told
how he received a copy of the pro
posed executive order to transfer the
naval oil fields from the navy de
partment to the interior department
soon after President Harding was
inaugurated. He said he took the
matter up with Rear Admiral Griffin,
then in charge of the bureau of en
gineering, who felt that the transfer
would be a mistake.
“I decided,” he added, ‘‘lie was
probably right. My grounds for cotn

lng to that conclusion were that the
interior department had, as Its mis
sion, the developments of the re
sources of the United States, while
the oil lands belonging to the navy
should not be developed except In
a case of real necessity.
“I went to the secretary of the
navy and urged that the lands be not
transferred to the Interior depart
ment. He said my protest was too
late, that the transfer had already
been agreed to by the president, Mr.
I'alt and himself."
Then Mr. Roosevelt told how he

order whereby the navy department
had the final say in leasing any of
the land in the nava'. oil fields "to

He emphasized the declaration that
he was not consulted concerning the

The point has been raised again in

coroner for the Scarborough dis

“So far as human law is concern

charged with attempting to do so.
"If people want to cut their

These opinions aroused a great
outcry, not only among lawyers, but
among the general public in Britain.
Discussing the protests, Royle said:
"I have always felt, rightly or
wrongly, That it is consummate im

mind to try to gauge the physical
pain and mental agony of those who
attempt to commit suicide.
“Some have more capacity tot
bearing pain, both physical and men

a man with attempting to commix

and his Maker.

$3 for Every Coolidge
Vote, Senator Asserts
Chicago, March 31. -Charges that
"there was much more evidence of
lavishness" in the Coolidge pri
mary campaign in Kouth Dakota
than wus noted in the Wood .and
Lowdcn campaigns in that state in
1920, when criticism of the expenses
resulted in a Senate inquiry into
campaign funds, were made today
In a telegram from United States
Senator Peter Norreck, a leader i*»
the Johnson campaign. The tele
gram also charged employment of
federal workers In the "elaborate
headquarte rs" of the Coolidge mana
Senator Norheck pledged to the
Johnson candidacy, was elected as
a delegate at large to the national
convention In the primary last week.
The telegram challenging the de
nial of William M. Butler, national
director of the Coolidge forces, that
excessive amounts were expended in
South Dakota, was anted at Red
field, March 29. It read:
“The statement of the Coolidge
management as to their expenses In
South Dakota Is untrue la many re
spects. They spent about $16,000 In
"Paid Coolidge organizers were
numerous in trains and hotels. Paid
workers were much in evidence on
the street cornerr. of our villages and
towns. Checks were sent Into the
smallest villages by the Coolidge or
ganization with Instructions to draw
for more If needed. The dally news
paper was established in the state
capital to champion the Coolidge
cause. There was a large army of
South Dakota men women on
their payrolls. They maintained ela
borate headquarters under the direc
tion of federal employes. Expensive
offices and organization forces were
maintained In towns and cities.
$3 Per Vote
“Criticism was frequently made
of the expenditures of the Wood
Lowden campaign in 1920 and led
to investigation by the Senate}
but there was, much more evi
dence of lavishness in the Cool
idge campaign, I believe the ex
penses would average three dol
lars for every vote they received.
"Indications are that some of the
larger counties, ■ were ilnanced from
outside and not from state head
quarters. In addition, outside cor
porations ran thousands of lines of
advertising in every paper in the
state, including even the smallest
weeklies, for three weeks preceding
the election, the avowed purpose of
which was to break down the pro
gressive forces but especially the can
didacy of Governor McMaster for tha
United States Senate. Evidently they
resented ills effort to bring down the
high gasoline prices.
"Among the Coolidge speakers were
members of congress, a member of
the cabinet and a former cabinet of
ficer. Neither effort no • expense
was spared by the Coolidge managers
| but the farmers and working people
i saved the day. Not only Is the John
son majority substantial, but fti»
Johnson delegation of which I am
one, appears on partial returns to be
victorious by a much larger major
