UNDER FIRE OF INVESTIGATION Major of Hough Hldera la "aid to Be Counting; on Friendship of President to See Him Safely Through.. (From a Staff Correspondent.) WASHINGTON, Nov. 17. (Special. Tele gram.) An old NehrasKan and Rotigh Rider, Major W H. II. Llewellyn, United States attorney for New Mexico, is under fire and in grave danger of losing his place, because of charges of Incompetency and discourtesy filed agalnsthim. Major Llewellyn has been 1'nlted States attorney for six years, and lias been a resident of New Mexico since his removal from Nebraska. There have recently come before his office some Important land cases In which the Department of Justice and the Interior department ore greatly Inter ested. Major Llewellyn has had a clash with Special Agents of the two depart ments and Is not working in harmony with them, it Is alleged. Then, too, there Is bitter factionalism In the territory and one of the factions Is hard after the former Rough Rider, making all sorts of charges against him. Hla accusers especially al lege Incompetency and Incivility. The White House haa started an Investi gation, which, so far, does not tend to hurt Major1 Llewellyn, but the Departments of Justice and Interior are also carrying on an Investigation, anii the president, who has been a warm ami tdmlrlng friend of Major Llewellyn, Is In 4oep quandary as to what he should do finer the circum stances. Llewellyn recognizes the seriousness of the case, but will not fcdmi. he Is In danger, believing the "Colonel," us the president la known to the Rough Mders, will pull him through. Should tbj worst come to the worst, there ia a L-.iundary commission to be appointed between New and Old Mexico, and Llewellyn, who knows every foot of the territory. It Is thought, could have a place on the commission for the asking. At present the major of tho Rough Hitlers Is standing pat. Hurkett's Postal Savings Banks Bill.
