ried by the Associated Press in this
way: "The results ot a year of 'ex

gone into specialized farming on a
large scale and will add to the
11,000 hens which ate working for
its dining car department, a herd or
300 milch cqws and a garden truck
farm. At the same time it will
build a second bakery to supple
ment the supplies furnished by the
company bakery in Seattle, so that
its cars may have fresh supplies both
at St. Paul and on the west end.

"The recently 'reformed' house

Speaker Cannon was chairman. Not

versely affect unlawful combinations
such as the sugar trust has been re
potted favorably by the new commit

he did the old rules committee."

By a vote of 4 to 2 the repub
licans on the Ballinger investigating
committee refused to allow Attorney
Brandeis to estaolisri 'connection be
tween the elections of Senator Emil
Piles of Washington, the appoint
ment of Ballinger as commissioner
of .the general land office and the po
litical activities of tho Guggenheim
Cunningham affiliation in Washing
ton. Brandeis produced numerous
newspaper articles telling of a
'jollity' party held by tho supporters
of Senator Piles tho evening of his
election. In the articles Piles was
quoted as saying: 'I owe my elec
tion to Charles Sweeney. He mado
me senator.' Sweeney, Brandeis
said, Is tho president of the Federal
Smelting & Refining company, the
'lead wing' of tho Guggenheim syndi
cate. Elmer Todd, United States at
torney at Seattle, was quoted as say
ing at this meeting: 'We ore all
Sweeney men now.' Many of the
Cunningham claimants were present.
Ballinger attended that meeting as
mayor of Seattle and he was active
in tho election of Piles and finally
that Piles, in offering him the com
missionership, said: 'I am request
ed to offer you, etc.' Ballinger grew
sarcastic under the fire of the 'pros
ecution' attorney, when Brandeis
suddenly switched his cross-examination
to the clear listing of the Cun
ningham claims and brought in the
alleged connections of Ballinger with
the Alaska coal claimants. 'All your
attempts to besmirch my character,'
cried the Irate secretary, 'intimating
some devilish inspiration back of my
action, are utterly unfounded. I
clear listed the claims 'upon the evi
dence before me, as I would now, on
the same evidence.' 'But,' insisted
Brandeis, 'didn't your actions In
clear listing them imply that an ade
quate examination had been made?'
Objections were raised and the ques
tion was unanswered."
An interesting incident In the Bal
linger investigating committee pro
ceedings is described by the Asso
ciated Press in this way "During
