by hirn at Alliance -during 1904, the same
relating to the filings made at Ellsworth.
"All of the money accompanying these
applications was United States money or
postofftue orders," said the witness, "and
aere received by mall at the Alliance land
office. These papers were then mailed to
the parties who made the payments. I re
tained duplicates and after recording them
they were sent to the United States land
ofllce at Washington. Where there was an
excess of land over and above that al
lowed the homesteader by his application
a charge of $1.25 per acre was made for
such excess, which accounts for some of
the receipts being for greater amounts
than the ordinary fee of 114."

SALT LAKE CITV, Nov. IS.-Ueports
that the federal grand Jury, which has
been sitting In this city and which has
been investigating coal land frauds, ba
voted several Indictments, cannot be con
firmed. According to the report, the Indict
ments will not bo returned until after the
close of the Investigation being conducted
here by Edward E. Clark, Interstate com
merce commissioner. E. M. Allison, at
torney for the Rio Grande system. In argu
ments before Commissioner Clark, has
charged that most of the testimony brought
out was for tho purpose of Influencing
public opinion against persons who might
be Indicted by the grand Jury.
When Commissioner Clark resumed his
Investigation today Attorney Allison mails
the request that II. G. Williams, general
manager of the Utah Fuel company, a
Gould corporation, be summoned as a wit
ness. Mr. Allison slated that tho chair
man of the Interstate Commerce commis
sion in Washington had communicated with
Mr. William's superior officer In Washing
ton and asked that Mr. William testify.
J. T. Mart-hand, who Is conducting the
government s caso before Mr. Clark, flatly
refused to examine Mr. Williams, staling
that he did not propose to render Mr. Wil
liams Immune to future action. At the re
queet of Mr. Marchand, Commissioner Clark
also excused from giving testimony at the
present time Frank B. Cook, a mining
operator, and William D. Foster, secretary
to Robert Forrester, a geologist In the
employ of one of the coal companies under
investigation. It was stated that these men
would be asked to appear before tho grand
Influential Men Implicated.
Scnsutional testimony was given by
Michael A. MyendorfT, a special agent of
the government, who began an investiga
tion of the coal land frauds In Utah and
who, before he had completed bis Investi
gation, was transferred to Los Angeles and
then to Portland, Ore. Mr. Myendorff pre
wnted aji affidavit In which he told of ef
forts made by influential men to Induce
him to ceuso fi.i Investigation of the coal
land fiauds. Ho named Senators W'arren
and Clark of Wyoming. Commissioner Rich
ard of the general lund office, and George
E. Pollock, chief of department 11. Interior
department, Washington. He allcgod that
in Menver Senator Wann told him he
ought not to go after the Union Pacific and
Incur tho enmity of that company. . He
charged that the land department at Wash
ington had suppressed evidence secured by
hlin. In two charges which he filed against
Robert Forrester, geologic, of the Utah
Fuel company, a Gould conmratlon, he al
leged no action was taken.
The witnesses furthtr alleged that George
Polkck. chief of department B. Interior
department. Instructed him to destroy four
affidavits which he had stcured against the
Union Pacific Coal company. Mr. Myen
dorff affidavit goes at length it0 the
mthods of tho coal companies In securing
coal lands by locations through dummies
who transferred their rights to the cor
porations. Affidavits I'urrlmnril.
Myendorff s affidavits allego thut on one
occasion seventy-seven men were tuken
Into a flic ea In tba-Unkn -thn at Donvey
before W. I. Glfford, agent of tiuj Union
Pacific:, and signed their names to powers
of attorney, relinquishments and affidavits
which were used to acquire title to coal
lands In Wyoming. Some of these men, It
ia asserted, signed ficticious names. The
men; who signed received l each for their
trouble. The Myendorff affidavit Included
affidavits made by a Denver saloon keeper
named Baitelle and Victor Lcbat, an ex
pressman of Denver, stating how a wagon
load of these men had been picked up on
Seventeenth street In Denver and driven
to the offices In the Union station. Aftr
they had signed the papers Jlartelie col
lected II from each man for his trouble in
getting them together, each man retain
ing X
In his reference to Senators Warren and
Clark the affiant states that 6n one oc
casion, when he met Senator Warren In
Denver, the senator produced confidential
letters which Myendorff had written to the
land commissioner In Washington, and
read extracts from them. Myendorff al
leged that It was represented to him that
to stir up the Wyoming coal lands matter
at that time Would Incur the enmity of
the Union Pacific Interests and prevent the
re-election of Senator Clark.
Myendorf alleged that he was removed
from Denver In 195 as a result pf his ac
tivities, and that pressure was brought to
have the matter of tho Wyoming lands
turned over to Inspector 0'Brn of Denver,
whom the affidavit described as a confi
dential friend of Macey, chief clerk of the
department at Washington and also a per
sonal friend of Senator Warren. Senator
Clark also, he alleged, wanted O'Brien de
tailed on this work.
Counsel for the Union Vuclllc moved that
all the matter collected In tho affidavits
be stricken out but the motion was over
ruled and the affidavit will be included in
the report to congress.
Department Refuses to Act.
Colonel P. 8. Sowers, a special agent of
the land department, was again called as
'witness and told of his Inability to Induce
the land department to act in matter re
lating to coal lands. Witness told of nu
merous letters written to tTie land com
missioner and of tho submission of affi
davits bearing on land frauds and sugges
tions tliat Investigations he made, but bis
letters were not answered. In November,
1900, he reported In relation to the lands
which eventually were transferred to the
Pleasant Valley Coal company, a Gould
corporation. Witness testified that he had
recommended action agalnut Robert Fores
ter, geologist for the Pleasant Valley Coal
company, but was Informed: by the depart
ment that the fact did not warrant prose
cution. Following this. In January, lfKC, he testi
fied, be was a.skcd by the department to
tendef his resignation. In response he
wrote to the commissioner of the general
land office calling attention to the gross
laxness in probing the coal land scandals
In Utah, but he received no reply.
Sowers resigned from the service, but
later waa reinstated, he testified, at the
request of George A. Sutherland, then at-

BROWNSVILLE, Tex.. Nov. fS.-Becnuse
of ;the appaient mlsundoi standing In por
tions of the country of the facts which
called forth the order discharging the threi
companies of colored troops recently sta
tioned here and in view of tho resultant
criticism of the president' course in the
matter, the Cltlaens' committee of Browns
ville recently requested General A- B. Net
tleton of Chicago, formerly assistant sec
retary of tho treasury, now here on busi
ness, to make In his own way a thorough
and . disinterested Investigation of tho
Brownsville tragedy of August 1J and re
porU his conclusions.
General Nettletnn has embodied his find
ings In a letter lo tho secretary of war. He
says In part: ' ,
As a citizen of Illinois, an nn anti-slavery
advocate when that plirnse had a moaning
and as a veteran who served In the union
army throughout the civil war, I shall at
least not ho suspected of prejudice against
men of color. .
Without rehearsing details, I wish to as
sure you that this absolutely unprejudiced
Investigation, made, after local excitement
lmd subsided, confirms In every particular
the conclusions reached by tho two army
officers sent here by the War department
on the strength of which the president took
his action, as well as tho clear and tem
perate statement published Immediately
after the tragedy by Chairman Kelly of
the Brownsville Citizens', committee..

lished as to the killing of one citizen, the
maiming of the chief of police, the firing
of the volleys Into and through hotels, sa
loons and many private residence and the
terrorizing of the entire town, tho letter
The well attested evidence Is that the
colored troops were trited here with the
smiie consideration that colored soldiers
of like bearing are treated In most garrison
towns of the northern states. That on the
other hand the street conduct of some of
them was often aggressively and cause
lessly insolent toward white men and
womrn, aiA that there, was no provocation
for the murderous raid by the soldiers, un
less It can be called a provocation that the
drinkers among them wero provided with
separate Imith tu certain saloons and on two
occasions Individual Insolence was resented
by individual citizens, but one of whom
happened to have, been a republican federal
official. There was no "riot" and no street
"rows," as many newspapers persist in
calling Ilie occurrence. It was simply a
most cowardly conspiracy to terrify, wound
and kill unoffending men, women and chil
dren at the hour of midnight, when defense
was impossible and was not even attempted.
